'00’s Music Spotlight: Charlene by Anthony Hamilton

So a lot of my core memories involve music in some way, which makes sense because I’m a music fanatic. Anyway I was listening to a 90’s R&B station the other day and this song came on and reminded me of a moment I shared with my partner and kid when she was just a few weeks old because this song was playing in the background that day and it’s one of my favorite songs. Anthony Hamilton is an American R&B/Soul singer from Charlotte, North Carolina. The song Charlene is one of Anthony Hamilton’s most popular tracks it was officially released in August of 2004 on his second studio album, “Comin' from Where I'm From”; checkout the video and my favorite lyrics from the track below:

My Favorite Lyrics From Track:

Woke up this morning found a letter that she wrote
She said she's tired that I'm always on the road
To hard to swallow being alone
She needs someone at night that she can hold

She must have told me a thousand times before
Silent cries I use to ignore

I won't leave
Promise I'll be here to the very end
By your side
To protect you and to love you and to be with you for life

She knows I really love this old music thing
Since I was a child it's been my dream

But I forgot about loving her
Damn the money, diamonds and pearls

Sometimes I cry
Because my heart is aching
