Ray Charles

Ray Charles Robinson (September 23, 1930 – June 10, 2004) was an American musician known as Ray Charles (to avoid confusion with champion boxer Sugar Ray Robinson.) He was a pioneer in the genre of soul music during the 1950s by fusing rhythm and blues, gospel, and blues styles into his early recordings with Atlantic Records. He also helped racially integrate country and pop music during the 1960s with his crossover success on ABC Records, most notably with his Modern Sounds albums. While with ABC, Charles became one of the first African-American musicians to be given artistic control by a mainstream record company.Frank Sinatra called Charles “the only true genius in show business.” more »

Outside the wind blows it ? the sound of your name
Yesterdays over tomorrow is still more of the same

When i saw you leaving I wished that I'd take you to stay  
I stood in silence as you slowly slipped away

Slip away, slip away
How could I ever let you slip away

Slip away, slip away
Right through my fingers I let you slip away

If I could have told you the things that I felt in my heart
but its heart to hold on to love when its falling apart
and now that its over there's nothing more i can say
except that I'm sorry for saying too little too late

Slip away, slip away
How could I ever let you slip away

Slip away, slip away
Right through my fingers I let you slip away
Right through my fingers I let you slip away
