Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 1/22/17

We got hit with a pretty decent snow storm last night, which gave me a perfect excuse to stay in and have a perfectly lazy day today.  I think my body needed it… I think I may be fighting something, so I’m going to do my best to enjoy the rest, even though I’m beating myself up (internally) for not doing a darn thing today.

At least I had some help with the theme for this week.  Thanks to Karuna at Living, Learning and Letting Goour theme for Song Lyric Sunday is to post a song about forgiveness.

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.

  4. This one was hard for me, because I could not think of any songs about forgiveness, so I went to google and found this song. The Alan Parsons Project is one of my husbands favorite bands, and I had never heard of them till we met, but now I love most of what they do. This song made me think of all the WWII generation individuals I have been interviewing lately. Some of them just want their story to be heard, and others I think are looking for absolution in a way. All I know is that I look at them as “Old and Wise,” and feel honored that I have the opportunity to record their stories for future generations.

    Lyrics by Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson, from Metro Lyrics

    As far as my eyes can see
    There are shadows approaching me
    And to those I left behind
    I wanted you to know
    You’ve always shared my deepest thoughts
    You follow where I go

    And, oh, when I’m old and wise
    Bitter words mean little to me
    Autumn winds will blow right through me
    And someday in the mist of time
    When they asked me if I knew you
    I’d smile and say you were a friend of mine
    And the sadness would be lifted from my eyes
    Oh, when I’m old and wise

    As far as my eyes can see
    There are shadows surrounding me
    And to those I leave behind
    I want you all to know
    You’ve always shared my darkest hours
    I’ll miss you when I go

    And, oh, when I’m old and wise
    Heavy words that tossed and blew me
    Like autumn winds that will blow right through me
    And someday in the mist of time
    When they ask you if you knew me
    Remember that you were a friend of mine
    As the final curtain falls before my eyes
    Oh, when I’m old and wise

    • Wow, that was a fantastic performance! I only hope we can choose to forgive now, rather than waiting until we are old or on our death bed. I’m thinking it would make for a much happier life. 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing, Sissy!
