Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 1/15/17

I’m busily getting ready for my very first real party in our new house.  I’m trying not to overdo it, but I’m not so good at that.  I will most likely pay for it all tomorrow, but I’m more excited than I can say.

The theme is always on my mind during the week, and this week was especially hard because every time I thought of it, I couldn’t really think of a good theme.  It wasn’t until just now that I decided to take from my post this morning and use it as the theme for this week.

So, our theme for Song Lyric Sunday is to post a song about the parent/child relationship.

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!

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.

  1. I am happy you decided to host this here Song Lyric Sunday, but I know it is a pressure to come up with prompts. That is why it is just fine and a good idea that you remind us all every time that we can just share any old song if we wish. I will post here as I will be on my way to Mexico in a week and won’t be around. I can definitely think of something for this week’s topic though. No problem.

  11. When I first read the prompt I thought of lots of mother/daughter songs, but I wanted to dedicate this one to my son. I always knew he was sensitive and caring, but he has blown me away these past two years, and has grown more into himself and become a man I am proud to call my son. As we were talking about songs for today he mentioned Creed’s “With Arms Wide Open,” so I decided to go with that song. This is a moment where I wish I could write some beautiful prose for my son, but this song will have to do. Thanks sissy for the great prompt.

    Written by Scott Stapp, Mark T. Tremonti, lyrics from Google Play Music

    Well I just heard the news today
    It seems my life is going to change
    I closed my eyes, begin to pray
    Then tears of joy stream down my face

    With arms wide open
    Under the sunlight
    Welcome to this place
    I’ll show you everything
    With arms wide open
    With arms wide open

    Well I don’t know if I’m ready
    To be the man I have to be
    I’ll take a breath, I’ll take her by my side
    We stand in awe, we’ve created life

    With arms wide open
    Under the sunlight
    Welcome to this place
    I’ll show you everything
    With arms wide open
    Now everything has changed
    I’ll show you love
    I’ll show you everything
    With arms wide open
    With arms wide open
    I’ll show you everything, oh yeah
    With arms wide open, wide open

    If I had just one wish
    Only one demand
    I hope he’s not like me
    I hope he understands
    That he can take this life
    And hold it by the hand
    And he can greet the world
    With arms wide open

    With arms wide open
    Under the sunlight
    Welcome to this place
    I’ll show you everything
    With arms wide open
    Now everything has changed
    I’ll show you love
    I’ll show you everything
    With arms wide open
    With arms wide open
    I’ll show you everything, oh yeah
    With arms wide open, wide open

  16. Yes, you are right, my song (https://beehalton.com/2017/01/15/song-lyric-sunday-seasick-steve/) could fit your prompt. But I am glad I didn’t see it because parent/child relationship is a very difficult one for me. My mum passed away when I was 12 and my relationship with my father is certainly not a good one. Any mother’s or father’s day makes me incredibly sad and that is a shame because it shouldn’t be that way. But so is life and in a way I am at peace with it all now. But griefing can be a long process. Take good care of yourself. I hope your party went well and you had a good time!
