Baker, Anita - Priceless Lyrics




When you ask me how I feel about you
I tried to find the word that best describes you
You are to me like a precious jewel, so valuable baby
You shine so bright, lighting up my life with pure delight

You are so priceless to me
And loving you has made me see
With your love, I can do most anything

I envision you and me in love together
Coming closer as we share each day together

Give me all the gold in the world
It will not replace this love, babyYou are so priceless to me
You're like the first rainbow in spring
Your love comforts my heart with joy you bring

Take a diamond ring worth a lot
What we got cannot be bought or sold

You are so priceless to me
And loving you has made me see
With your love, I can do most anything
Yes sir
You are so priceless to me
You're like the first rainbow in spring
Your love comforts my heart with joy you bring

Never had a lover, babe
My baby, my baby, my darlin'

You are so priceless to me
And loving you has made me see
With you love, I can do most anything

    BRINGS TO MIND,PRINCE...NOTHING COMPARES TO YOU.

    TO LOVE SOMEONE UNCONDITIONALLY AND MONEY AS MUCH AS ITS NEEDED CANT TOUCH IT.

    WHEN YOU THINK OF THE WEDDING VOWS FOR RICHER OR POORER...THEN YOU LOOK AT THE DIVORCE RATE...

    ITS STRANGE HOW SO MUCH COME TO LIGHT AND CHANGE WHEN THOSE VOWS ARE PUT TO THE TEST.

    MAKES ONE WONDER JUST WHAT WAS THE MARRIAGE BUILT ON TO BEGIN WITH,AND WHAT WAS SO DEEP IT WAS ALLOWED TO TAKE IT APART.

    WHEN YOU GROW UP BEING BROKE YOU ARE USE TO THE LIFESTYLE..NOT WANTING TO STAY THERE BUT MORE EQUIPPED TO HANDLE THINGS IN CERTAIN SITUATIONS..

    I CAN RECALL HEARING OF SITUATIONS WHERE MARRIAGES FALL APART BECAUSE ONE TRUSTED TO PAY THE BILLS,FAILED TO DO SO...USED THE MONEY FOR SOMETHING ELSE AND HOME SUFFERED BECAUSE OF IT.


    TO HAVE SOMEONE WHOS NOT AFRAID TO GO THAT EXTRA MILE WITH AND FOR YOU..WHOS NOT AFRAID TO SHOW JUST WHAT YOU MEAN TO THEM ..FOR IN DOING SO IT BUILDS THE LOVE YOU SHARE IT STRENGTHENS THE FOUNDATION OF THE FAMILY.

    AS I LISTENED TO THE DAUGHTER OF PLANTATION OWNERS,THAT CONSISTED OF FAMILY THEIR FAMILY..IT WOULDNT ALLOW ME TO RESPOND ON THAT PAGE,BUT IT WAS CLEAR THEY HAD NO MASTER OVER THEM AND SHE SAID IT DIDNT MAKE HER SAD WHEN HER PARENTS SEPARATED WHEN SHE WAS 6 ...HOW SHE WAS MARRIED BEFORE HIGH.. SCHOOL.

    SOUNDS LIKE SHE WAS OKAY WITH DADDY BEING GONE BECAUSE SHE GOT A CHANCE TO DO WHAT SHE WANTED TO DO,THE MAN SHE MARRIED WAS 7 / 8 YEARS OLDER THAN SHE WAS.

    MAKES ONE THINK DID SHE MARRY TO LEAVE HOME...SHE SAID HER MOTHER AND HIS PARENTS HAD HOMES
    .BUT IT WASNT MENTIONED THAT AFTER MARRIAGE THEY HAD THEIR OWN HOME,YET SAID HER GRANDFATHER OWNED A PLANTATION IN WHICH FAMILY LIVED...BUT IT WASNT WHERE SHE HER FATHER OR MOTHER DESIRED TO STAY.

    AND THATS A GOOD THING...NO ONE IS OBLIGATED TO STAY WHERE THEY DONT WANT TO STAY...AND IF YOU HAVE FOUND SOMEONE AND DECIDE TO GO ANOTHER DIRECTION ITS OKAY TO DO SO CARING ENOUGH ABOUT THE PERSON TO SPEAK WITH THEM AND MAKE SURE YOU ARE ON THE SAME PAGE.

    ASSUMPTIONS ARE MADE IN SO MANY CASES AND ITS DESTROYING SO MUCH.

    ALLOWING THINGS / PEOPLE TO INTERFERE IN YOUR RELATIONSHIPS.BECAUSE YOU PERHAPS ARE AFRAID TO STAND AND FACE THEM FOR YOURSELF.

    DIAMONDS MAY BE PRICELESS TO MANY BUT I NEVER WANTED TO CUDDLE WITH ONE.

    I THINK ABOUT MY VEHICLE ONE MAY CALL A HOOPTIE...SO MUCH TIME SPENT IN ITS UP KEEP..TAKING IT TO THE CAR WASH,CHECKING THE OIL AND OTHER FLUIDS..MAKING SURE ITS IN GOOD CONDITION AND CLEAN INSIDE AND OUT....

    BUT IT SEEMS WHEN SOMETHING HAPPENS TO THAT CAR ( EXAMPLE BROKEN WINDOW) THATS OUT OF YOUR CONTROL THINGS BEGIN TO CHANGE,THE ROUTINE ONCE PRACTICED BRINGS YOU TO A PLACE OF LOOKING AND SAYING ILL DO IT LATER.THE VALUE AND TIME ONCE PUT THERE CHANGES.

    AND ALTHOUGH IT MAY BE SEEN AS A FLAG THAT YOU NO LONGER CARE,IT COULDNT BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH,
    ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT HOW CARS WERE VALUED MORE THAN A PERSON IN YOUR LIFE...OR A PERSON IN LIFE.
    IF YOU SCRATCHED A PERSONS CAR OR GOT DIRT ON IT,YOU MIGHT FIND YOURSELF IN A BODY BAG OR IN DIVORCE COURT.


    I JUST WONDER FOR PEOPLE WITH THAT MENTALITY,THAT HAS GOTTEN DOWN AND COULDNT TAKE CARE OF THE UPKEEP OF THEIR CAR/ HOME ETC..WHAT IS/ WAS IT LIKE..


    AFTER THE ONES WHO VALUED YOU SO MUCH AND OVERLOOKED SO MUCH JUST TO BE HAPPY AND ENJOY LIFE IN SOME CAPACITY WITH YOU AND BECAUSE THEY WERE JUDGED AND PUT ON THE BOTTOM OF YOUR LIST TO SPEND TIME INVESTING IN THAT RELATIONSHIP IT FAILED AND YOUR CAR OR HOME IS IN THE HANDS OF SOMEONE ELSE WHO SEEMS TO NOT BE ABLE TO SATISFY YOUR TASTE WITH KEEPING UP.


    ONE THINGS FOR CERTAIN,YOU MAY REALIZE YOU MISSED OUT ON SOMETHING OR SOMEONE GOOD,BASED ON PREJUDGING

    AS ONE WOULD SAY," READ A BOOK AND FIND OUT WHATS INSIDE"

    YET IF THAT BOOKS PAGES ARE GLUED TOGETHER ,IT BECOMES IMPOSSIBLE TO DO.AS WITH ANYTHING ELSE IN LIFE.


    IF LOVE MATTERS AND WE MATTER THE PROOF SHOULD BE IN VIEW.

  37. William Smith

    Ive listened to all Anita Baker's song and 90%. of them are searching for the Greatest Love. So hard to find in a orchidaceous society that's only in love with what one can provide materialistically.

  38. Jerome Smith

    A beautiful song and one of Anita's most underrated! 'Priceless" is certainly among her best up tempo ballads she recorded imo. Queen Anita!! The Songstress at her best!!

    Anita. Greatness personified!! Living Legend####
