Vibrant, Full of Life
Gerald goes on to sing about how he wants to get married to one of his songs and have the first dance to be one of his songs. Like many tracks on the album, the lyrics take on more meaning due to Levert's death; even though "In My Words" has a fairly uptempo backing track, there's an undercurrent of sadness when you remember that Gerald never found his true love before he died.
Among the other standout tracks are the "grown and sexy" dance jam "DJ Don't," in which Gerald goes out to a dance club on a Friday and asks the DJ not to play any slow songs; "Deep As It Goes," a sex song meant to be taken both literally and metaphorically; and "Wanna Get Up with You," an uptempo number in which Gerald tests his mack game on a sexy woman.
This is an album in which many of the songs are very upbeat, very vibrant and full of life. That liveliness serves as a reminder that although Gerald's no longer with the living, life goes on. By many accounts, Gerald lived life to the fullest, and this album is not only a perfect testament to that, but also to his shining talent. If he had known this was to be his last album, Gerald Levert probably would have been very proud.
