Song Lyric Sunday – She Will Be Loved by Maroon 5

Not only did I get Jim Adam’s theme wrong (it was supposed to be simile), if I had it to do all over again, I probably wouldn’t have picked “smile”.  All I can think is that it’s the universe’s way of getting to me.  Perhaps it’s trying to tell me something.  Perhaps I need to smile, but in the past few days, I keep finding reasons not to.

I suppose that’s what led me to pick this particular song.  Maybe someone, somewhere will see something good in me, because I’m for sure not seeing it right now.  “Broken smile” is just about how it feels to be me right now, which reeks of self pity and all those things I fight against, but sometimes it’s good to just say it, you know?  Perhaps if I acknowledge how terrible I’m feeling, it might turn things around.  Sometimes it works, but sometimes it doesn’t.

So, I’m going to drown myself in music for a while, thanks to my amazing followers.  Thanks for making my Sunday’s so enjoyable, even when I can’t find much joy.  And even though this song talks about the girl with the broken smile, I think there is also hope.

I do hope you enjoy.

Beauty queen of only eighteen she
Had some trouble with herself
He was always there to help her, she
Always belonged to someone else
I drove for miles and miles and wound up
At your door
I’ve had you so many times but somehow I want more
I don’t mind spendin’ everyday
Out on your corner in the pourin’ rain
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved, and she will be loved
Tap on my window, knock on my door, I
Want to make you feel beautiful
I know I tend to get so insecure
It doesn’t matter anymore
It’s not always rainbows and butterflies
It’s compromise that moves us along yeah
My heart is full, and my door’s always open
You can come anytime you want yeah
I don’t mind spendin’ everyday
Out on your corner in the pourin’ rain
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved, and she will be loved
And she will be loved, and she will be loved
I know where you hide alone in your car
Know all of the things that make you who you are
I know that goodbye means nothing at all
Comes back and makes me catch her every time she
Falls
Yeah, tap on my window, knock on my door, I
Want to make you feel beautiful
I don’t mind spendin’ everyday
Out on your corner in the pourin’ rain oh
Look for the girl with the broken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
And she will be loved, and she will be loved
And she will be loved, and she will be loved
Please don’t try so hard to say good-bye
I don’t mind spendin’ everyday, out on your corner in the pourin’ rain
Please don’t try so hard to say good-bye

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 6/3/18

I’m so grateful to my followers.  Especially today.  I guess I overdid it and now my body is forcing me to take some down time.  I just don’t get why this whole exercise thing is so hard.  I guess if it was easy, we would all be super fit and healthy, right?  It hasn’t deterred me; it really is helping.  I’m going to get back at it.  I’m just hoping I feel better soon.

I did have help this week.  While I’m not going to use the month-long idea suggested by Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me, I am going to use one of the prompts he suggested, so thank you for your help.  And if you haven’t done it yet, go check out his blog!

So, without any more self pity from me, let’s just get right to it.  Put your thinking caps on, break out your playlists and get to work!  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week, brought to us by Jim Adams, is “smile”.  

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
