Today I drove up to Akron (3 hours) for a meeting and then drove back. It was a very successful meeting, so I’m glad I went. A couple of days ago I started listening to my iPod with the intent of listening to all 1300+ songs that I have on it. Six hours in the car seems barely to have made a dent!

While I was driving back home, Jill Scott’s “I Am” came on and I am now officially obsessed with it. It’s typical of Scott’s love songs: sexy, soulful, and genuine. I also love that it’s a song for adults. Here’s a YouTube video of the track from her 2007 album The Real Thing: Words and Sounds Vol. 3:

Here’s a video of her singing it live:

I love that she weaves lyrics from her other songs into this live version. Someday I HAVE to see her in concert — she’s such an amazing live performer (I love her live album!).

Here are the lyrics:

You like
Don’t be scared
You never saw me like this before huh?

I been a goody daddy, but I don’t have to be
If you don’t want me to, I’ll be your nasty baby

No time for games, no rules just play
Hope you been thinking about the same thing

I’m just saying what’s on my mind
It’s been good, but now it’s time
To show love what we made of

No time for games, no rules just play
I hope you want me in the same way

Every time I close my eyes,all I dream about is making love
I can’t even sleep at night,all I dream about is making love
It’s just all the things I see,when you’re inside of me, that keeps my mind going crazy
I can’t even think at night,all I dream about is making love

… to you

I love the shower, out by the kitchen sink
Lay me where you wanna, make my knees weak

No time for games, no rules just play
Hope you been thinking about the same thing

I’m just saying what’s on my mind
It’s been nice, but now it’s time
To show love what we made of

No time for games, no rules just play
Hope you want me in the same way

Every time I close my eyes,all I dream about is making love
I can’t even sleep at night,all I dream about is making love
It’s just all the things I see,when you’re inside of me, that keeps my mind going crazy
I can’t even think at night,all I dream about is making love

Do you want it on the back? it’s like that
Do you want it on the floor? lover please
Tease me please me spank me feed me
You know what I need baby

I’m just saying what’s on my mind
It’s been nice, but now it’s time
To show love what we made of
No time for games, no rules just play
Hope you want me in the same way

Every time I close my eyes,all I dream about is making love
I can’t even sleep at night,all I dream about is making love
It’s just all the things I see,when you’re inside of me, that keeps my mind going crazy
I can’t even think at night,all I dream about is making love

… like that
… like that

Tease me please me spank me feed me you
know what I need baby
