For Sean Levert

I don’t know how many of you will remember this song by the Commodores, but it’s a wonderful song about missing those whose music moved you. In the case of the Commodores, they were talking about Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson.

With the passing of Sean Levert, it seemed as good a time as any to post these words.

Marvin he was a friend of mine 
And he could sing a song 

His heart in every line. 
Marvin sang of the joy and pain 

He opened up our minds 
And I still can hear him say: 
Talk to me 
so you can see 
What's goin' on.
Say you will sing your songs 

Forever more 

ever more

ever more.
Gonna be some sweet sounds comin' down on the nightshift. 

I bet you're singin' proud 

oh 

I bet you pull a crowd. 

Gonna be a long night 

it's gonna be allright on the nightshift. 

You found another home 

I know you're not alone on the nightshift. 

You found another home 

I know you're not alone on the nightshift.
Jackie 

hey
what you're doin' now? It seems like yesterday 

When we were workin' out.
Jackie 
you set the world on fire 
You came and gifted us 
your love 
it lifted us higher and higher. 

Keep it up and we'll be there at your side. 
Say you will sing your songs forever more 
ever more 
ever more.
Gonna be some sweet sounds comin' down on the nightshift....
 
Rest in Peace, Sean. You will be missed.
