One particular person that I remember listening to growing up was Conway Twitty. Conway has one of the best tones I have ever heard. His voice flutters like a butterflies wings. The way he changes his volume in different parts of his music really makes a person sit back in their seat. He is one of my all time favorite singer with the wonderful memories beginning with my papa and I.
From the time I was in diapers, my papa (grandpa) would sing to me. He still sings to me and I just enjoy every moment of it. I remember one song that usually got stuck in my head more than others which was "Before The Next Teardrops Falls". My papa is and will always be my shoulder to cry on. He can be stubborn and make funny faces with his dentures taken out, but he has made such a huge impact in my life. The lyrics in this song mean, no matter what heart break comes and goes, that special person will always be there to pick you back up. That special person will always be there during these heartbreaking moments. When I would cry, my papa would always make things better by singing to me. He would always tell me, "Whoever broke your heart is stupid." After laughter's he would always just let me cry and let me know that he will always be there before the next teardrop falls. Like we always say, "There is no cure for stupid." Here are some lyrics that still make me teary eye till this day.
Meaningful lyrics to the song, Before The Next Teardrop Falls
"It's your happiness that matters most of all"
"I'll be there before the next teardrop falls."
"And if he ever leaves you blue, just remember that I love you."
These lyrics basically tell the song. It is such a beautiful song. You can be a special person to anyone. You could be a friend, a sister/brother, aunt/uncle, boyfriend/girlfriend, or in my case, you could be a papa. This song has so much meaning although it has very few lyrics. I hope you enjoy the song and actually listen to the lyrics. Below is the link of the song. Enjoy (:
