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.

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

  11. Reblogged this on Wonderwall and commented:
    Hide is not mentioned in this song, but I think it is implied. It is about a secret smile reserved for one person therefore, that means it is hidden fro. Everyone else. It is by Semisonic.

    Secret Smile
    Nobody knows it but you’ve got a secret smile
    And you use it only for me
    Nobody knows it but you’ve got a secret smile
    And you use it only for me
    So use it and prove it
    Remove this whirling sadness
    I’m losing I’m bluesing
    But you can’t save me from madness
    Nobody knows it but you’ve got a secret smile
    And you use it only for me
    Nobody knows it but you’ve got a secret smile
    And you use it only for me
    So save me I’m waiting
    I’m needing, hear me pleading
    And soothe me, improve me
    I’m grieving, I’m barely believing it now, now
    When you are flying around and around the world
    And I’m lying a lonely
    I know there’s something sacred and free reserved
    And received by me only
    Songwriters: Dan Wilson

      • No-one expects you to be able to listen to, and certainly not comment on, every single entry. You must not even try, otherwise it puts you under unnecessary stress. Choose 5 (or whatever) at random each week and let everyone know that is what you will do. It is a fantastic way of hearing old favourites, and new music, and I’m sure everyone is just happy for that chance. I started off trying to listen to every song, but have now given up on that. YOU MUST DO THE SAME!
        It is enough that you take the time to come up with a theme. No-one should, or would, expect more.

      • Thank you so much for this. I tend to be extreme in my perfectionism and it’s hard to change. It feels like giving up to me, but I think you may be right. It’s just getting too hard to keep up with all of them. 😊
