Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 8/13/17

If you follow my SLS theme post, you will know that lately I’ve been taking my inspiration from the shows I’ve been watching and this week is no exception.

It’s crazy and rather funny to me sometimes how it actually happens.  It’s not as straight forward as you might imagine.  This time it was World of Dance and I happened to catch a few words of the song that one of the contestants used for her dance.  I honestly have no idea the name of the song or even what it was about, but the theme was born and I’m running with it.

So, without further rambling, the theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is outer space, including planets, stars and moons.  

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 helenvahdati@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.

  5. Love this theme. My husband was talking last week about how cool it would be to have a theme like this so he could use his favorite song, “kashmir,” by Led Zepplin. My son thought of a Rush song that fit, but I decided to go with one of my favorite Styx songs, “Come Sail Away.” Not quite sure why I love this song, but I have, from the first moment I heard it, and I’m excited I get to share it here.
    Written by Dennis De Young

    I’m sailing away set an open course for the virgin sea
    I’ve got to be free free to face the life that’s ahead of me
    On board I’m the captain so climb aboard
    We’ll search for tomorrow on every shore
    And I’ll try oh Lord I’ll try to carry on

    I look to the sea reflections in the waves spark my memory
    Some happy some sad
    I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had
    We live happily forever so the story goes
    But somehow we missed out on that pot of gold
    But we’ll try best that we can to carry on

    A gathering of angels appeared above my head
    They sang to me this song of hope and this is what they said
    They said come sail away come sail away
    Come sail away with me
    Come sail away come sail away
    Come sail away with me
    Come sail away come sail away
    Come sail away with me
    Come sail away come sail away
    Come sail away with me

    I thought that they were angels but to my surprise
    They climbed aboard their starship and headed for the skies
    Singing, come sail away come sail away
    Come sail away with me
    Come sail away come sail away
    Come sail away with me
    Come sail away come sail away
    Come sail away with me
    Come sail away come sail away
    Come sail away with me
    Come sail away come sail away
    Come sail away with me
    Come sail away come sail away
    Come sail away with me
    Come sail away come sail away
    Come sail away with me
    Come sail away come sail away
    Come sail away with me
