Ain't Nobody

In 1984, a young boy who in fact loved breakdance had watched Breakin', an MGM movie about breakdancers. This boy could not resist to always remember a particular R&B song featured in that movie until now. A song that won the 1983 Grammy Award for Best Rhythm and Blues Vocal Performance By a Duo or Group With Vocal.

"Ain't Nobody" by Rufus and Chaka Khan, which is actually the theme song for his personal blog. The midi file can be listened on the homepage. Or, you can listen to the song clip.

Captured effortlessly
That's the way it was
Happened so naturally
I did not know it was love
The next thing I felt was
You holding me close
What was I gonna do?
I let myself go

And now we're flyin' through the star
I hope this night will last forever

I've been waitin' for you
It's been so long
I knew just what I would do
When I heard your song
Filled my heart with your bliss
Gave me freedom
You knew I could not resist
I needed someone

And now we're flyin' through the stars
I hope this night will last forever
Oh oh oh oh

Ain't nobody
Loves me better
Makes me happy
Makes me feel this way
Ain't nobody
Loves me better than you

I wait for night time to come
And bring you to me
Can't believe I'm the one
I was so lonely
I feel like no one could feel
I must be dreamin'
I want this dream to be real
I need this feelin'

I make my wish upon a star
And hope this night will last forever


And first you put your arms around me
Then you put your charms around me
I can't resist this sweet surrender
Oh my nights are warm and tender
We stare into each other's eyes
And what we see is no surprise
Got a feeling most with treasure
And a love so deep we cannot measure

For Nina and Kezia, the boy's treasure and the love he cannot measure.
