Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 6/4/17

You guys would not believe the week I’ve had.  Every time I think about it, I can’t help but laugh at how ridiculous it all is.  As I was posting the theme last week, I was in quite a bit of pain and ended up in the emergency room on Sunday morning only to have my appendix removed later that day.  I’ve been home recovering, trying to stay positive.  I’m just hoping we are through with surgeries for at least a year!

I don’t know what it is about surgery that doesn’t lend itself to writing or blogging, but I just couldn’t let you guys down.  I’m not doing anything else with my blog, but at least I can manage this.  Music is a great healer, after all.  It is also one of those things that lends itself well to memories.  It’s amazing how music can bring back memories that I thought long forgotten… sometimes that’s a good thing, but sometimes that can be difficult as well.

For tomorrow, I hope we can all find a happy memory to share with our music choice.  Which, of course, leads me to the Song Lyric Sunday theme this week –  post a song surrounding a happy memory.

I have my sister-in-law to thank for the theme this week. I decided I had just enough in me to post something, but coming up with the idea was beyond me.

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

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.

  2. Ugh, so sorry that happened to you! That’s terrible.

    Alas, happy memories is a difficult one. I don’t have hardly any. My life thus far has been damn near constant misery with maybe short bits of happiness intertwined in there. You’re making me think this week, that’s for sure.

  8. So this was not as easy as I thought it would be, but I finally found a song, and a happy memory to go with it. I had never really heard of Coldplay before I heard this song, and to be honest they are still not my favorite band, but this song has stuck with me from the moment I first heard it. I was at one of my niece’s productions at her high school and they performed a dance to this song, and I will never forgot how powerful it was. I love dance, I met my husband in a dance class, and I recognize the power it can have, and this moment was no different. When I was leaving the performance I remember thinking how amazing it would be if my children could find a high school that embodies who they are and helps push them as this school did Adele. As luck would have it, they did. So here is Coldplay’s “Fix You.”

    When you try your best but you don’t succeed
    When you get what you want but not what you need
    When you feel so tired but you can’t sleep
    Stuck in reverse

    When the tears come streaming down your face
    When you lose something you can’t replace
    When you love someone but it goes to waste
    Could it be worse?

    Lights will guide you home
    And ignite your bones
    And I will try to fix you

    High up above or down below
    When you’re too in love to let it go
    If you never try you’ll never know
    Just what you’re worth

    Lights will guide you home
    And ignite your bones
    And I will try to fix you

    Tears stream down your face
    When you lose something you cannot replace
    Tears stream down your face
    And I

    Tears stream down your face
    I promise you I will learn from all my mistakes
    Tears stream down your face
    And I

    Lights will guide you home
    And ignite your bones
    And I will try to fix you
