Song Lyric Sunday – Angels Fall by Breaking Benjamin

This is one of those bands that I started listening to with my daughter when she was in junior high/high school, so I know there’s lots of their music that I haven’t heard.  I fell in love with their 2006 album, “Phobia”, and didn’t think I would love another album quite as much.  When my son told me they had released a new album in 2015, I decided to check it out, not really thinking it would go anywhere.

Boy was I wrong.  I love “Dark Before Dawn” so much.  It is dark and sad, but I honestly can’t stop listening to it.  I’ve shared a few songs from this album, but I’ve honestly been waiting for the chance to share this one as well.  I don’t think I could even explain why this song and this album have become favorites of mine.  In some ways, it feels like the story they are telling is my own.

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

I tried to face the fight within
But it’s over
I’m ready for the riot to begin and surrender
I walked the path, it led me to the end, remember
I’m caught beneath with nothing left to give, forever
When angels fall with broken wings
I can’t give up, I can’t give in
When all is lost and daylight ends
I’ll carry you and we will live forever, for ever
Grey skies will chase the light away, no longer
I fought the fight, now only dark remains forever
Divided I will stand
And I will let this end
When angels fall with broken wings
I can’t give up, I can’t give in
When all is lost and daylight ends
I’ll carry you and we will live forever, for ever
The sun begins to rise and wash away the sky
The turning of the tide, don’t leave it all behind
And I will never say goodbye
When angels fall with broken wings
I can’t give up, I can’t give in
When all is lost and daylight ends
I’ll carry you and we will live forever, for ever
Forever, forever

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 4/29/18

I don’t have any great story about how I came up with the theme this week.  It could simply be that I started listening to my music on a daily basis and I seem to be finding this word a lot in the songs I’ve been listening to.

I also think I’m going to kill two birds with one stone and post its counterpart next week.  So, if you can guess what that will be, you can also start thinking about next week in the process of choosing this week’s song!  Sometimes, I do try to be helpful.

 

Anyway, without any further rambling from me, let’s get to it.  Put your thinking caps on, break out your playlists and get to work!  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “angel”.  

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

Song Lyric Sunday – Brother by NEEDTOBREATHE

This song is new to me as of this week, but I have to say that I’ve fallen completely in love with it.  It has such a powerful message.  It also makes me think of my own siblings.  Some of them have been with me through everything.  I know the title is “Brother” but aside from my hubby, my sister is my rock, my shelter and my strength.  She’s been with me through it all and I only hope I’ve offered some of those things in return to her as well.

Music is so powerful.  I’m starting to realize that my life isn’t quite complete when I’m not listening to music.

I also want to throw a quick shout out to all my followers each week.  I know I’ve neglected you all terribly in the past month or so, but I have to say that I am constantly amazed at this community and for your willingness to help out and be there with me through everything.  Thank you so much for all the great music along the way too.  I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the ride to this point and I’m planning to keep it going.

I do hope you enjoy the song.  I apologize for the lateness of my post today, but I’m sure you’ll forgive me!

Ramblers in the wilderness we can’t find what we need
We get a little restless from the searching
Get a little worn down in between
Like a bull chasing the matador is the man left to his own schemes
Everybody needs someone beside em’ shining like a lighthouse from the sea
Brother let me be your shelter
Never leave you all alone
I can be the one you call
When you’re low
Brother let me be your fortress
When the night winds are driving on
Be the one to light the way
Bring you home
Face down in the desert now there’s a cage locked around my heart
I found a way to drop the keys where my failures were
Now my hands can’t reach that far
I ain’t made for a rivalry, I could never take the world alone
I know that in my weakness I am stronger
It’s your love that brings me home
Brother let me be your shelter
I’ll never leave you all alone
I can be the one you call
When you’re low
Brother let me be your fortress
When the night winds are driving on
Be the one to light the way
Bring you home
Brother let me be your shelter
Never leave you all alone
I can be the one you call
When you’re low
Brother let me be your fortress
When the night winds are driving on
Be the one to light the way
Bring you home
Brother let me be your shelter
Never leave you all alone
I can be the one you call
When you’re feeling low
Brother let me be your fortress
When the night winds are driving on
Be the one to light the way
Bring you home
Brother let me be your shelter
Never leave you all alone
I can be the one you call
When you’re low
Brother let me be your fortress
When the night winds are driving on
Be the one to light the way
Bring you home
Brother let me be your shelter
Brother let me be your shelter
Brother let me be your shelter
Brother let me be your shelter
Brother let me be your shelter

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 4/22/18

I’m a little late in posting this week.  I seem to have fallen off the grid and don’t have a whole lot of passion for this blog of mine right now, but I am doing my best to keep up SLS for all of my amazing followers.

I heard a song on The Voice this week, which is entirely responsible for the theme.  It also fits in perfectly with the amazing weekend I am currently engaged in.  My sister is staying, once again, and we have been enjoying cooking in the kitchen, shopping and crocheting.  I’m thoroughly entrenched in the exploration of some pretty great food, and I’m super grateful she enjoys cooking so much.

This all brings us to our theme this week.  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 “brother/sister”.  You can also go with the more general theme of “siblings”, but I wanted to provide a specific word just in case you’re as OCD as I am.

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!

Song Lyric Sunday – Stay by Rihanna (ft. Mikky Ekko)

I’m posting this a day early.  To be honest, I normally do that, but for some reason it still feels a little weird today, probably because I’m not at home and I know that I won’t be able to do a whole lot with my blog tomorrow.  I hope that doesn’t stop you all from taking part and checking out each other’s posts.  I truly love all the great songs that are explored each week.

I have to say that I have always loved this song.  I can’t say I’ve heard many Rihanna songs that weren’t played on the radio, but this one just gets me.  It makes me think of my husband.  We haven’t always had it easy and there were times that I wasn’t sure what tomorrow would bring, but I’m grateful every day that we decided to stay.  He is truly my soulmate, my friend and my home.

I hope you enjoy!

All along it was a fever
A cold sweat hot-headed believer
I threw my hands in the air, said, “Show me something”
He said, “If you dare, come a little closer”
Round and around and around and around we go
Oh now, tell me now, tell me now, tell me now you know
Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay
It’s not much of a life you’re living
It’s not just something you take it’s given
Round and around and around and around we go
Oh now, tell me now, tell me now, tell me now you know
Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay
Ooh, ooh, ooh, the reason I hold on
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ’cause I need this hole gone
Funny you’re the broken one but I’m the only one who needed saving
‘Cause when you never see the light it’s hard to know which one of us is caving
Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay, stay
I want you to stay, hooh

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 4/15/18

I took an impromptu trip to join my hubby in California this weekend.  I ended up taking the day off yesterday and flew out to meet him.  He actually drove down on Tuesday.  It’s going to be a short trip for me, but I’m already happy I decided to come.  We ended up at the beach last night, and just that short walk was enough to make me happy I made the decision to come.

I honestly don’t want to leave tomorrow.  It’s frustrating with most everyone around me speaking a different language, but somehow it hasn’t bothered me as much this time around.  I told my hubby that it’s weird when you find yourself in a different state.  The air feels different somehow.

Anyway, I think that’s enough romanticizing about my trip, but this all does lead us to the theme this week in a round-about sort of way.  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 “stay”.  

Just a quick note – I realize I am pretty far behind in listening/reading your posts.  I promise I will get caught up, it’s just not going to happen this weekend.  I’m truly grateful for your participation and that so many of you check out all the posts each week.  It truly makes this thing I started a few years ago even more special than I could have imagined!

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!

Song Lyric Sunday – Bright Lights by Matchbox Twenty

I mentioned last week that I was surprised I had only posted one song by Matchbox Twenty.  They were the very first alternative band that I fell in love with all on my own.  Most of the music I had listened to previously had been someone else’s passion and I just happened to jump on their ride.  I did fall in love with Country music for a while, but this band is what finally made me leave that world behind.  There’s just something about listening to this band that brings me back to me, if that makes sense.

I first heard them on the radio and then fell into the Alternative music world slowly but surely all on my own.  I think the reason this music feels so much like home is that it kept me going when I wasn’t even sure who I was or where I belonged or even if I belonged.  I guess you could say music kept me more sane than I would have been without it.

Also, I think Rob Thomas is brilliant; his voice and his lyrics.  He’s also not too bad to look at, if I’m being honest.

I do hope you enjoy!

She got out of town
On the railway New York bound
Took all except my name
Another alien on Broadway
There’s some things in this world
You just can’t change
Some things you can’t see
Until it gets too late
And baby, baby, baby
When all your love is gone
Who will save me
From all I’m up against out in this world
And maybe, maybe, maybe
You’ll find something
That’s enough to keep you
But if the bright lights don’t receive you
You should turn yourself around
And come on home
I got a hole in me now
Yeah, I got a scar I can talk about
She keeps a picture of me
In her apartment in the city
Some things in this world
Man, they don’t make sense
Some things you don’t need
Until they leave you
And they’re things that you miss, you say
Baby, baby, baby
When all your love is gone
Who will save me
From all I’m up against out in this world
And maybe, maybe, maybe
You’ll find something
That’s enough to keep you
But if the bright lights don’t receive you
You should turn yourself around
And come on home
Let that city take you in, come on home
Let that city spit you out, come on home
Let that city take you down, yeah
For God sakes turn around
Baby, baby, baby
When all your love is gone
Who will save me
From all I’m up against in this world
Now well, maybe, maybe, maybe
You’ll find something
That’s enough to keep you
But if the bright lights don’t receive you, well
Turn yourself around, girl
Come on home
Yeah, come on home
Baby, baby, baby, baby
Come on home
Yeah, come on home
Yeah, come on home
Yeah, come on home
Baby, baby, baby, baby
Come on home
