Lupe on Blues and Soul Magazine



"The new single `Paris, Tokyo`

“I love Paris, I love Tokyo… And what inspired me to write the song was that between `Food And Liquor` and this album we travelled EVERYWHERE`- multiple countries, multiple towns, multiple tours. So I just developed a knack and a love for touring, even if I didn`t want to do it! You know, despite the lyrical wear and tear it has on your body - particularly with the different climates - just by force I had to fall in love with it! And of course another side to it all is, when you travel, you leave people behind. So I actually wrote the song for my girl, `cause I`d be gone so much we`d go for two months at a time without seeing each other. So it`s basically her song. Just to let her know that, wherever I go, she comes with me - even if it is just mentally or in spirit.”"

"A face of stone, was shocked on the other end of the phone
Word back home is that you had a special friend
So what was oh so special then?
You have given away without gettin at me?..""

There is a sudden pang.....right here....

It's not quite often you have a selected dreamscape of a chosen artists..... not knowing what DONKS and Goyards are... meaning to not follow a man as a trend/fad/great pretender, but as an introduction to a renaissance like you do L. hughes, R. Hayden, P.L. Dunbar, N. Giovanni, A. Lorde....
We are lovers of the wordsmiths that carry art as these fantasists carry us through their lane...

So you can't help to say "DAMN... I thought the song was for me....."
Something special.....you are Mr. jaco, Something Freaking speacial

I think the person is saying that it's sad to realize that Paris Tokyo wasn't written for them...

*sigh* Lupe has a girlfriend...
I too am crushed.
