Morning radio drives me crazy, every morning.  But every morning, I find myself flipping through the dials, hoping and praying that I’ll hear something other than ads for local car dealerships, discount plastic surgery (as if!) and of course, all of that talking and fake laughter.  It’s just so annoying.

Then one morning, I stopped at Steve Harvey’s show.  Mind you, he and his crew are usually guilty of all of the morning radio crimes that drive me nuts (especially talking over each other and laughing at inside jokes that don’t seem funny), but something was different.

Steve was talking about a song that had really touched him and without identifying the artist or the title, he started reciting the lyrics.  It sounded like he was reading a poem, but that’s really what a song is anyway, right?  The words seemed so familiar, but I couldn’t remember the song, at first.  Then I realized that it was Lionel Richie’s “Love Will Find a Way.”  I turned up the volume and really listened to the words and within seconds, I was on the brink of tears.  Then when the song played a few moments later, the tears really starting rolling down my face.

Clearly I was too young to understand what Lionel was saying when this song released back in the day, but on this day, it all made sense.

Here, take a listen for yourself, but first, peep these lyrics…

Are you feeling down, and lonely
Feeling like you can’t go on
Just remember love will find a way

Tell me, are you going through changes
Time seems like it’s passing by
Just believe that love will find a way

I see the tears you cry
I see the pain that’s in your eyes                                                                                

So many times you were so lonely
And no one seemed to care

But if your hopes, for your tomorrows
Are drowning in your sorrows
Know your heart will show you the way

Are you trying to find a beginning
Or something just to hold on to
Always know that love will find a way

Is it hard, this life you’re living
Does the world seem so unkind
Don’t you worry love will find a way

Some say we’ve lost, our way
Some say the world has gone astray                                                                           

But if you know where you’re going
There’s nothing you can’t do

‘Cause problems will come
And they will leave you
The world will try to deceive you
But the truth will always be in your soul

Do you want some joy in your time

Are you trying to find some peace of mind
All you need to know is
Love will find a way

Are you looking for that place to go

Where the truth is all you’ll ever know
All you need to say is
Love, love with find a way…
