Billy Lawrence on Soul Train- Interview and Paradise

video


One day I was watching Soul Train and I saw an artist I'd never heard of. It was Billy Lawrence. She performed Come One. I loved the song, her outfit, the whole performance. So I ran and grabbed a VHS tape (yes, a tape) and recorded as much as I could. After her interview she sung Paradise. I was "Hooked On You", Billy. I became and instant BILLYVER. I "claimed" that with this new technological world, and the way music is now put out, Billy would come back and give us Billyvers what we've been missing. And if she didnt I was going to make enough noise for her to know how much we love her. As I began planning my format for Billyvers.blogspot.com and working on a Petition to have Billy's 3rd album unshelved I learned that Billy had a Twitter and was back in the studio. And here we are...

Lyrics to Distant Love by Billy Lawrence

Lyrics
Billy Lawrence- Distant Love

I've been thinking about you baby, it's been a while
Its been so long since I've touch you and seen you smile
My dreams have me wish for you when I awake
Boy that distance between us is just too much to take
Oh just to think what we have
Would be a special thought in my memories
Now I'm just anticipating
The next time I see your face
Billyve  my loves waiting even though you're far away

Chorus
Distant love been thinking bout the love we share
Distant love I wish that I could be right there
Distant love been thinking bout the love we share
Distant love I wish that I could be right there

I love your laugh and your stylish ways and your boyish charms
I would give anything for a moment in your arms
When I call you I have to cherish the time we spend
Cause it breaks my heart when our talk comes to an end

Oh I Billyve if we just hold tight
We can make it through this time and it will be alright
Just imagine you and me every day and every night
Cause this distant love, ooh, it feels so right

Chorus
Distant love been thinking bout the love we share
Distant love I wish that I could be right there
*Billy adlib to line above- (I've been thinking about the love we share yeah)
Distant love been thinking bout ( oh ooh) the love we share
Distant love I wish that I could be right there


Distant loving it keeps me holding on, distant love                     
                   *Billy adlib above-  (don't you know)
Distant loving it makes it all so strong (makes it strong)
Distant loving it keeps me holding on ( Billy- My baby) distant lover
Distant loving it makes it all so strong

Distant love (echo 2xs) Distant lover
Distant love (echo 2xs) Distant lover
Distant love (echo 2xs) Distant lover
Distant love (echo 2xs)Distant lover

(piano solo)

Oh I Billyve if we just hold tight
We can make it through this time and it will be alright
Just imagine you and me every day and every night
Cause this distant love, ooh, it feels so right

Chorus
Distant love been thinking bout the love we share
Distant love I wish that I could be right (Billy- wooo) there
Distant love been thinking bout the love (Billy- wooo ooh) we share
Distant love I wish that I could be right there

Distant love been (Billy- distant love) thinking bout the love (Oh distant love) we share
Distant love I wish that I could be right there
Distant love been thinking bout the love we share
Distant love I wish that I could be right there

Distant loving it keeps me holding on  (Billy- Oh yeah), distant love                    
Distant loving it makes it all so strong (Billy- I've been thinking about you, baby, its been a while)
Distant loving it keeps me holding on distant lover ( Billy Its been so long since I touch and I've seen your smile)
Distant loving it makes it all so strong (Billy- Ooh hoo yeah)

Distant loving it keeps me holding on, (Billy- holding on) distant love                     
Distant loving it makes it all so strong (Billy- and on and on and on and on yeah)
Distant loving it keeps me holding on ( Billy- Its the loving baby) distant lover
Distant loving it makes it all so strong ( Billy- Its the loving darling)

Distant loving it keeps me holding on, (fading begins)                  
Distant loving it makes it all so strong (fades out completely)

Karian's Video: Billy Lawrence- Paradise.

Paradise is the second song of Billy Lawrence I ever heard. Her sophemore cd was titled after the song. The song is sensual, emotional, and wonderful. It got the beat of a Sade song but Billy's mezzo-soprano voice is the only voice I can ever imagine making this song what it is.

Paradise by Billy Lawrence

Song Artist: Billy Lawrence; CD: Paradise; Song: Paradise
writers:  Etheridge, Lawrence, and Organized Noize

Like Paradise you wash away my tears
That will justify submitting to my fears
My neglect for you made me realized
That our relationship can be jeopardized
for you I'll sacrifice
You made me believe
The love i found in you
I can conceive a taste of Heaven


Oh
It's all in me ooh hahh

Paralyzed by your love I'm mesmerized
How you still survived
Through it all i realized
ooh yeah
Acceptable is where i longed to be
Now we're inseparable
You bring forth the light in me

The faith that lies in you shows a strength in me
You open up my heart through your eyes I see
The beauty you posses lies inside of me
The love I found in you
I can conceive a taste of Heaven

Oh oh Oh Heaven
Heaven In Your love

Faith lies In you
Strengthens me 
Open my heart
Through your eyes I see
Beauty you possess lies in me
I can conceive a taste of

Faith lies In you
Strengthens me 
Open my heart
Through your eyes I see
Beauty you possess lies in me
I can conceive oh baby a taste of

Faith lies In you
Strengthens me 
Open my heart
Through your eyes I see
Beauty you possess lies in me
I can conceive (conceive) a taste of Heaven
 oh Heaven Oh oh oh ah ah
