Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 10/23/16

It’s hard to believe it’s Saturday again and time for your Song Lyric Sunday theme.  I have to say that I’m exhausted today and I had the hardest time thinking of one.  I was ready to throw it and just tell you all to go your own way, but then I decided to reach out to my sister for ideas.  She ended up giving me way too many choices, but one of her contributions is  a theme that is near and dear to my heart.

Before I give you your theme, I wanted to say that the coolest part about this for me is that my sister and her family started to play along.   So, not only have I found music lovers here in the blog community, I’m able to share my love of music with one of my best friends in a fun, new way.  She’s been playing along for a while now, so if you want to check out her picks each week, she can be found in the comments as “dlrands” since she doesn’t have a blog of her own.

**

Music is such an emotional experience for me.  My fiance says all the time that music can change my mood and that I should always listen to music.  I love it when I’m in a really bad mood and I hear a song that makes me smile and I end up forgetting why I was upset to begin with.

 

So, our theme for Song Lyric Sunday is to post a song that helps pull you out of a dark place.  

As always, you can go your own way and post a song that has nothing to do with the prompt.  We’re all here sharing our love of music and lyrics, and most of all, having a great time!

Also, if you would like to suggest a theme, I am open to suggestions.   Please either pop it in the comments or send me an email at redesp75@yahoo.com.

Here are the “rules”:

  • Post the lyrics to the song of your choice, whether it fits the theme or not
  • Please try to include the songwriter(s) – it’s a good idea to give credit where credit is due and it’s honestly just a simple Google search
  • Make sure you also credit the singer/band and provide a link to where you found the lyrics
  • Link to the YouTube video, or pull it into your post so others can listen to the song
  • Ping back to this post or my own Song Lyric Sunday post
  • Read at least one other person’s blog so we can all share new and fantastic music and create amazing new blogging friends in the process

Feel free to use the Song Lyric Sunday badge by copying it into your post or add it to your site to show you are participating.

  6. I love that Helen does this every week, and when she reached out last night I reaches out to my family. The theme was my husbands idea, but I am going to post the song that helps my son, as well as my own, which has no lyrics. There is no story behind the song that helps my son, it just does. Joe Satriani is not known for his voice, in fact this is one of his few songs with lyrics. He is, however, a phenomenal guitar player which is what he is known for.
    The song that helps me is “All of me” by Jon schmidt, a member of the Piano Guys. Before my blood clot it was just fun to listen to and to watch him play. Now I am reminded, every time I hear it, how amazing life is and how blessed I am to watch my children grow, spend more time with my husband, and how amazing it is to be able to participate in these simple moments that mean so much to my sister. Thanks sissy.

    I believe, Written by Joe Satriani,

    I’ve been out walking, for hours
    I got something on my mind
    How did we get here? Where are we going?
    Why is life so hard

    I read the stories, see the photographs
    World’s a crazy space
    Got to hold on to my dreams
    There’s just no other place
    There’s just no other place

    I believe
    We can change anything
    I believe
    We can rise above it
    I believe
    There’s a reason for everything
    I believe
    In my dream

    I’ve seen the shadows, of the living
    I’ve seen them turn and walk away
    And I keep searching, for the right words
    To send these thoughts away

    There’s a picture, I like to look at
    A picture of a beautiful face
    And I see something, in her eyes
    Sends me to a better place
    Sends me to a better place

    I believe
    We can change anything
    I believe
    We can rise above it
    I believe
    There’s a reason for everything
    I believe
    In my dream
    I believe
    We can change anything
    I believe
    In my dream

    • First of all, its a good thing I don’t have to look at my hands to type, because I wouldn’t be able to see them, I’m crying so much. I love that you and your family participate in this. Both of these songs were amazing and something I needed right this very moment. Does your son get his current look from Joe Satriani? I kept thinking of him as I listened to the song. I love you! ❤

  7. Helen, I posted a song yesterday or the day before on my blog. It is not in the style for your prompt but I think it is a post you would find interesting and fun. Is it okay if I just put your badge at the bottom and say Post shared with Song Lyric Sunday? I would add the tag too.

  11. Wow! The piano piece is hectic isn’t it? Music transports us to a time and place. I love lots of different styles of music and I’m not adverse to trying something new. But of course I always return to my roots. Stay tuned……
