~ Lovely ~

Center of My Universe ~ "I guess the theme of this record is taking what we have in this world and looking at things in a new and different light, and seeing how wonderful they are, instead of focusing on the bad. There are bad things that happen in the world, but there is so much hope. I think we need to express that to each other as much as possible." by Charles White.

Australian native, Michelle Tumes returns two years after her successful debut, Listen, with Center of My Universe. Her silky smooth vocals drift through her soft music to give a real earthy feel. Center of My Universe, sets up a soothing experience to the listener with string instruments, various percussion, and synthesizers. Michelle's music connects on a level where we pose questions to God about ourselves, our insecurities and the joy which overcomes us as we daily come to know new facets of His love.

I discovered Michelle Tumes after listening to one of her songs, Lovely while browsing through some friend's blogsite. Lovely, is definitely a lovely song. The music is full and really touches you, penetrating deep into you.

~ Lovely (Center of My Universe) ~

...Michelle Tumes...
You're the sweet dreams that soothe me
When I can't fall asleep
You're the field in the middle of the city
When I'm rushing by at the speed of light
You're the strong resolution when I find no peace
You're the church bells ringing in the evening
When all is quiet
You whisper comfort
That lifts my heart I get so weak
Ooh You're lovely, lovely
You're the center of my universe
A thousand times I look around me and I find
Ooh You're lovely, lovely
You're the center of my universe
A million ways could not explain
You're lovely
You're the soft words that touch me
When I just can't speak
You're the breeze on the ocean in the morning
Reminding me to greet the day
You're the flowers I remember seeing in Italy
Colors through a golden haze
Bright and radiant, soft and fragrant
In the noon day sun, it makes me sing
I understand there may be grief
And there may be pain
But I'm aware You blind the darkness
With Who You are
