Song Lyric Sunday – She’s Always a Woman by Billy Joel

There’s just something about Billy Joel on a Sunday afternoon, isn’t there? I love his artistry, his lyrics and he is most definitely a master on the piano. This is the song my son played in the car the other day and I just couldn’t get it out of my head.

I’m assuming you all know and love this song, but it’s always fun to listen to old favorites. I do hope you enjoy!

She can kill with a smile, she can wound with her eyes
She can ruin your faith with her casual lies
And she only reveals what she wants you to see
She hides like a child but she’s always a woman to me
She can lead you to love, she can take you or leave you
She can ask for the truth but she’ll never believe you
And she’ll take what you give her as long as it’s free
Yeah she steals like a thief but she’s always a woman to me
Oh, she takes care of herself, she can wait if she wants
She’s ahead of her time
Oh, she never gives out and she never gives in
She just changes her mind
And she’ll promise you more than the garden of Eden
Then she’ll carelessly cut you and laugh while you’re bleeding
But she brings out the best and the worst you can be
Blame it all on yourself ’cause she’s always a woman to me
Oh, she takes care of herself, she can wait if she wants
She’s ahead of her time
Oh, she never gives out and she never gives in
She just changes her mind
She is frequently kind and she’s suddenly cruel
She can do as she pleases, she’s nobody’s fool
But she can’t be convicted, she’s earned her degree
And the most she will do is throw shadows at you
But she’s always a woman to me

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 10/28/18

I love it when music inspires me. I’ve been listening to music more lately, since I am now carpooling with my son to work. He received an internship with my company, so we drive to work together three days a week. I’m excited for his amazing opportunity, but it’s also a fun way to spend time with him. Music has always brought us together, and this is no exception.

We were driving to work the other morning and while I was listening to a song he picked (which was amazing by the way), I found two key words that gave me the theme for today and next week. That’s always fun when I can come up with two at the same time!

I’m slightly late this week. I actually almost forgot to post this, which is pretty crazy considering how much I love SLS. But, I remembered so you can all breathe a huge sigh of relief.

Let’s put on our thinking caps, break out our playlists and get to work!  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is give/giving.

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 – Last Beautiful Girl by Matchbox Twenty

I had the perfect song in mind for today, and I was honestly shocked that I hadn’t used it before. However, I noticed that someone else already picked it today, so I went back to the drawing board. I did happen to find our theme word buried in the lyrics to this song, so I’m going to go with it. “A thousand lost forevers”.

Besides, Matchbox Twenty is one of my all-time favorites, even if it has been a while since I’ve listened to them. It didn’t stop me from remembering every single lyric to this song. I was surprised I remembered, but it was sort of like riding a bike. It all came back to me in a flash.

I do hope you enjoy!

This will all fall down like everything else that was
This too shall pass and all of the words we said
We can’t take back
Now every fool in town would’ve left by now
I can’t replace all the wasted days
The memory of your face – can’t help thinkin’
Maybe if we ever coulda kept it all together
Where would we be
A thousand lost forevers
And the promises you never were giving me
Here’s what I’m thinking
It won’t be the first – heart that you break
It won’t be the last – beautiful girl
The one that you wrecked – won’t take you back
If you were the last beautiful girl in the world
Tell me one more time
How you’re sorry about the way
This all went down – you needed to find your space
You needed to still be friends
Needed me to
Call you if I ever couldn’t keep it all together you’d comfort me
Tell me but forever
And the promises I never should have believed in
Here’s what I’m thinking
It won’t be the first – heart that you break
It won’t be the last – beautiful girl
The one that you wrecked – won’t take you back
If you were the last beautiful girl in the world
It’s over now – and I’ve gone without
Cuz you’re everybody else’s girl
It seems to me – you’ll always be
Everyone else’s girl
Everyone else’s girl
This will all fall down
Like everything in the world
This too must end
And all the words we said
We can’t take back
It won’t be the first – heart that you break
It won’t be the last – beautiful girl
The one that you wrecked – won’t take you back
If you were the last…
It won’t be the first – heart that you break
It won’t be the last – beautiful girl
The one that you wrecked – won’t take you back
If you were the last beautiful girl in the world
The last beautiful girl in the world
You are the last beautiful girl in the world
Beautiful girl

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 10/21/18

The past few days have been rough for me. I seem to catch every little thing that’s floating around out there, but for me, it attacks my stomach. I’ve had a hard time eating anything and I’m telling you, I really miss food right about now. I thought for sure I would feel better today, so I tried eating normally this morning, and I’ve been paying for it ever since.

Anyway, I just realized that I hadn’t posted the theme yet and I hadn’t even thought about it much this week. So, I’ll be going with one you all gave me when you were trying to guess the theme last week. It is really close to what we did last week, but it is technically different, so I’m just going with it.

Without any further grumbling from me, let’s just get right to it. Let’s put on our thinking caps, break out our playlists and get to work!  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is lost.

Song Lyric Sunday – Hollow by Breaking Benjamin

I’m feeling like a terrible host. I haven’t listened to all your entries in three weeks now! I know I always say it, but I really do mean it; I will catch up. One of these days I will also stay caught up for more than a week.

This song suits me just fine today. It makes me want to listen to the whole album and just drown in the grayness of it all. I think there are beautiful moments in the album, but I wouldn’t call it “happy”.

Anyway, I don’t have much else to say. I just hope you enjoy the song as much as I do!

Stay alive
Heaven holds a place for us tonight
I am paralyzed
Close your eyes
Drive away the cloud that hides the light
And leave the pain behind
Dead alive
Find a way to bury all the lies
Escape the pain inside
‘Cause I don’t want to fall
Or let you go
Love left me hollow
I’m with you in the end
Cold, crippled, and shallow
Don’t leave me here again
Fruit of life
I can hear the voices of the hive
Chemicals collide
Loaded smile
Light the way for those you left behind
Set the earth on fire
‘Cause I don’t want enough
I want it all
Love left me hollow
I’m with you in the end
Cold, crippled, and shallow
Don’t leave me here again
I can’t go on
You are bound to break me in
I come undone
Don’t you drag me down again
I’ve come undone!
Love left me hollow
I’m with you in the end
Cold, crippled, and shallow
Don’t leave me here again
I can’t go on
You are bound to break me in
I come undone
Don’t you drag me down again

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 10/14/18

I’ve always loved fall, but in the past few years, I haven’t enjoyed it as much because I knew it was leading straight for the holidays, and I was boycotting them. This year, though, I’ve made a very concerted effort to change from a scrooge to an elf. Not that we’re quite there yet, but I did pick up a few fall decorations for the house today. I used to be all about decorating for every season and I’m hoping to get there eventually. For now, I will settle for a cute door sign, a table cloth and a fake pumpkin on my doorstep.

I was amazed last week at how many people got so excited about guessing the theme for this week. I didn’t think it would be all that hard, but it was a mystery until late on Sunday. If you’ve read through the comments, hopefully you’re prepared. If not, this is just like old times.

Without any further rambling from me, let’s just get right to it. Let’s put on our thinking caps, break out our playlists and get to work!  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is hide/hiding/hidden.

Song Lyric Sunday – Waste by Seether

I know what you’re thinking. This is a pretty desolate song to post on my birthday, and I suppose it is, but I had a plan and I don’t really have time to think of another one. My hubby took me to the mountains for my birthday weekend, so I’m trying to set up all my posts while he’s sleeping so I don’t take away from our fun.

When I first heard this song and read the lyrics, I really gravitated towards the sadness and the despair, but now that I’m in a better place, I can look at this song in a different way. I think we all have times in our lives when we are at the bottom, so to speak, but there is a way to leave that life behind and start a brand new one. I should know; I’ve done it.

Seether is honestly one of my favorite bands and I pretty much love everything they do, so I hope you like this as much as I do, even though it feels like a downer.

Happy Sunday everyone!

Go unnoticed, let the freedom wash away.
Losing focus, the pretense is second nature.
It’s a broken life that I cling too,
Trying to make right.
I feel dismayed, just like you do.
I feel decayed..
So find me a way, to leave this wasted life behind me. (this wasted life)
So find me a way, to leave this wasted life behind me after all.
Yes, I see you surrounded by the hopeless.
When they need you you’re much to good and bloated,
By the hopeless life that you cling too.
Trying to make right.
I feel disdained, just like you do.
I feel decayed..
So find me a way, to leave this wasted life behind me. (this wasted life)
So find me a way, to leave this wasted life behind me after all.
Go away.. Go away..
And just leave me here.. Just leave me here.. Just leave me here..
So find me a way, to leave this wasted life behind me. (this wasted life)
So find me a way, to leave this wasted life behind me. (this wasted life)
This wasted life..
This wasted life..
This wasted life..
