Nothing better than turning out the lights and falling asleep to some Tracy Chapman music. She’s really an underrated talent and This Time is an especially poignant song. Love the rhythm, the sound of the guitar, her singing voice, and her lyrics. This song is also great advice for young people in relationships. My favorite line is:

I’m gonna make you say that you love me first. And you’ll be the one with the most to lose tonight.


Never say “I love you” first. You lose so much power in a relationship that way.
