Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 2/12/17

I think I’m going through some changes, trying to figure out a new pattern for myself in the new house.  I’ve also started reading more again, which means I’m spending less time writing.  I know that’s just an excuse, but it’s what I have for now.  I really want to write more and blog more, but I haven’t found the right rhythm here in the house.  I’m wondering if it’s desk placement.  Does that affect writing?

Anyway, enough about my lack of presence on the blog.  At least I’m here to offer you another Song Lyric Sunday theme for the week.

As I said last week, we are going through different stages of love.  Last week, we explored that moment when you first like someone and you think maybe they’re the one.  When you finally find someone you are willing to take the next step with, you may have a few months or a few years of bliss, but there is a point where the doubts start creeping in.  Maybe you have a fight or maybe you start to notice all the little things that you didn’t when you were so full of new love.  Any number of things can cause those pesky doubts to creep in.

Which leads us to the theme this week.  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday is to post a song about the doubts and insecurity you experience in a 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

Song Lyric Sunday – Just a Kiss by Lady Antebellum

I had no idea that most of the songs I love aren’t truly “joyful” love songs.  I’ve been thinking about this since I posted the theme last night and I was at a loss.  I was literally going through my library song by song this morning.  When I ran across this song, I was so excited I finally found one!

As many of you know, I used to be a HUGE country music fan.  Now, I can listen to it and I even enjoy some of it, but it isn’t my favorite.  That’s probably why all my favorite country songs are ten years old or more.  This one isn’t quite that old, but it’s not new either.

I just listened to it again and remembered why I fell in love with it the first time I heard it.  First of all, I love this group.  I love their harmonies and their voices.  I also really like their music.

The song makes me think of my first date with my fiance.  I was so scared of screwing things up and I didn’t want to rush things because I know how I am.  When I meet someone I like, I’m all in pretty quickly and it hasn’t always been good for me.  Even knowing that about myself, it still blows me away that we were on our date for six hours just talking and laughing and getting to know each other.  We ended the night with a very long, sweet kiss and it was perfect.  It hasn’t always been easy, but we are just about to celebrate our four year anniversary, and marriage is only a few months away (no firm date yet, lol).

I do hope you enjoy the song as much as I do!

Just a Kiss by Lady Antebellum
Written by Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley, Dave Haywood and Dallas Davidson
Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

Lyin’ here with you so close to me
It’s hard to fight these feelings when it feels so hard to breathe
Caught up in this moment
Caught up in your smileI’ve never opened up to anyone
So hard to hold back when I’m holding you in my arms
We don’t need to rush this
Let’s just take it slow

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
No I don’t want to mess this thing up
I don’t want to push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I’ve been waiting for my whole life
So baby I’m alright, with just a kiss goodnight

I know that if we give this a little time
It’ll only bring us closer to the love we wanna find
It’s never felt so real, no it’s never felt so right

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
No I don’t want to mess this thing up
I don’t want to push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I’ve been waiting for my whole life
So baby I’m alright, with just a kiss goodnight

No I don’t want to say goodnight
I know it’s time to leave, but you’ll be in my dreams

Tonight
Tonight
Tonight

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
No I don’t want to mess this thing up
I don’t want to push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I’ve been waiting for my whole life
So baby I’m alright, oh, let’s do this right, with just a kiss goodnight
With a kiss goodnight
Kiss goodnight

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 2/5/17

I was never so happy to see February as I was this year.  I don’t have anything against January, but this one just seemed really dreary, and I felt like I was drowning in it.  I can’t tell you how happy I am that the first few days of this month have been sunnier and warmer.  Personally, I think our song prayers worked last week.

I’m not huge of celebrating something just because a certain day says I should (Valentine’s Day), but it is nice to celebrate love.  So, I’ve decided it would be a fun over-all theme for this month, but rather than just posting songs about love randomly, I think we should work through the stages of love.

Which leads us to the theme.  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday is to post a song about your first crush, or just a crush, or seeing someone for the first time and falling into that gooey abyss of butterflies and blushing.  You get the drift.

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.

  • Post the lyrics to the song of your choice, whether it fits the theme or not

Friday Fictioneers – Signs

“No!”  She screamed into the icy wind.  “This isn’t right!”  Looking down at the stone protruding out of the frozen earth, she stood rigid and unyielding as tears streamed down her face.

“Baby,” she whispered, “please let me know you’re still here.”

**

The wintry sun glaring through her window shattered her dreams, but opening her eyes, she realized she could still feel him, warm and close.  Her eyes scanned the apartment and landed on the windowsill.  A radiant smile spread across her face when she saw the flower that had bloomed overnight.

It was him.  He was still here!
