Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 4/1/18

I know I’m constantly commenting about how time flies, but honestly, it’s crazy!  April?  It was so weird to type that into the subject line!  This year has shaped up to be crazy-busy and I don’t think it is going to let up anytime soon, what with three graduations coming up in May!


As you know, I’ve been working a lot lately and when you end up staying late at work or working weekends, all the days sort of get mixed up into a crazy blur and it’s hard to keep track of which day you’re on.  On Tuesday, I stayed at work until 9:30 at night and went in late on Wednesday, which was a huge mistake!  I was all messed up and never got into a groove on Wednesday.  I’m happy I was able to sleep in a little bit, but it didn’t really end up being worth it.

Time is a strange and crazy thing.  I understand why we track it and organize it, but it does make one wonder what would happen if we didn’t.  Food for thought, and maybe it will help you with your selections this week.

Since we’ve already done the theme of time, I’ve decided I’m going to start breaking it down and exploring different aspects.  So, let’s get our thinking caps on, break out our playlists and get to work!  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “days”.  You can also choose days of the week if you don’t want to use the word “day”.

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

  15. This one was hard for me, and maybe it’s because of where I am in my life…anyway, I am going with a son by U2 mostly because of the lyrics. “The traffic is stuck and you’re not moving anywhere,” resonated with me, and then the line, “It’s a beautiful day, don’t let it get away.” Sometimes we just have to look out and see the beauty of the day to get out of the stuck traffic. I hope you all have a beautiful day!
    Written by Paul David Hewson, David Howell Evans, Adam Charles Clayton, Laurence Joseph Mullen from Google.

    The heart is a bloom
    Shoots up through the stony ground
    There’s no room
    No space to rent in this town
    You’re out of luck
    And the reason that you had to care
    The traffic is stuck
    And you’re not moving anywhere
    You thought you’d found a friend
    To take you out of this place
    Someone you could lend a hand
    In return for grace
    It’s a beautiful day
    Sky falls, you feel like
    It’s a beautiful day
    Don’t let it get away
    You’re on the road
    But you’ve got no destination
    You’re in the mud
    In the maze of her imagination
    You’re lovin’ this town
    Even if that doesn’t ring true
    You’ve been all over
    And it’s been all over you
    It’s a beautiful day
    Don’t let it get away
    It’s a beautiful day
    Touch me
    Take me to that other place
    Teach me
    I know I’m not a hopeless case
    See the world in green and blue
    See China right in front of you
    See the canyons broken by cloud
    See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
    See the Bedouin fires at night
    See the oil fields at first light and
    See the bird with a leaf in her mouth
    After the flood all the colors came out
    It was a beautiful day
    Don’t let it get away
    Beautiful day
    Touch me
    Take me to that other place
    Reach me
    I know I’m not a hopeless case
    What you don’t have you don’t need it now
    What you don’t know you can feel it somehow
    What you don’t have you don’t need it now
    Don’t need it now
    It was a beautiful day
