Song Lyric Sunday – Breakaway by Kelly Clarkson

The day just keeps getting later and later and I’m running out of time to post my own response to the SLS theme. I don’t have any reason for it and I know I’ll beat myself up for it if I don’t, so here I am. First, though, I had to fix the laptop. I thought it would fix itself, but I kept getting this weird starting screen. Thanks to my son for pulling up some stuff on Google. I’ve never been one to shy away from entering weird commands on a computer, so I went for it. I’m just hoping that one day I don’t accidentally do something truly horrifying to the system.

Anyway, I haven’t taken a look at all the entries today, so this one could be a duplicate, but it is speaking to me today. It is also telling the story of why I picked the theme this week. I’m feeling pretty broken, but for some reason, I just keep going. Life is beautiful, but pain is truly starting to take its toll on me. I am trying not to let it break me, but I’m feeling the effects. Hope is all I have; hope that someday I will find the source of the pain and be able to fix it. Or, at least, find a better way to live each day with perhaps less pain.

This song makes me feel hopeful. I’m sure you’ve heard it before, but I hope you enjoy it again today.

Grew up in a small town
And when the rain would fall down
I’d just stare out my window
Dreamin’ of what could be
And if I’d end up happy
I would pray
Trying hard to reach out
But when I tried to speak out
Felt like no one could hear me
Wanted to belong here
But something felt so wrong here
So I pray
I could breakaway
I’ll spread my wings, and I’ll learn how to fly
I’ll do what it takes till I touch the sky
And I’ll make a wish
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won’t forget all the ones that I love
I’ll take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Want to feel the warm breeze
Sleep under a palm tree
Feel the rush of the ocean
Get on board a fast train
Travel on a jet plane
Faraway
And breakaway
I’ll spread my wings, and I’ll learn how to fly
I’ll do what it takes till I touch the sky
And I’ll make a wish, take a chance, make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
I won’t forget all the ones that I love
I gotta take a risk, take a chance, make a change
And breakaway
Buildings with a hundred floors
Swinging ’round revolvin’ doors
Maybe I don’t know where they take me
But gotta keep movin’ on
Movin’ on
Fly away
Breakaway
I’ll spread my wings, and I’ll learn how to fly
Though it’s not easy to tell you goodbye
I gotta take a risk, take a chance, make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won’t forget the place I come from
I gotta take a risk, take a chance, make a change
And breakaway
Breakaway
Breakaway

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 7/15/18

Can you even believe another week has gone by? I can’t. I keep making plans on the weekend to blog during the week, but then before I even know it, the week is over and I’m here writing my weekly SLS theme post again. I suppose if I just keep this one thing going on my blog, that will be enough until I can figure out what else to do with it. Hopefully you will be patient with me.

I’ve been watching a lot of tennis and soccer (sorry, football) this week. There have been some crazy games played! My favorite person/team didn’t always win, but I’m not unhappy with the men’s tennis finals, how the women’s finals ended up and also the final teams in the World Cup. I was hoping for Belgium and Croatia, but I will settle for one of them playing. I really did feel bad for England, but I truly wanted Croatia to win, so I was excited and shocked because I thought England was for sure going to the final.

Anyway, it did help me come up with the theme this week, so I’m happy about that as well. So, let’s just get right to it. Let’s put on our thinking caps on, break out our playlists and get to work!  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is break.

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 – At This Moment sung by Michael Buble

I’m starting to think that I need to do something about my music listening situation. I’ve become so obsessed with podcasts that I don’t really listen to music anymore, and I miss it. I keep remembering  all these amazing songs/singers/bands that I love and it makes me wonder why I’ve put them on a shelf.

I suppose it comes down to life and how things change. I may not listen to music a whole lot right now, but who knows what will happen tomorrow or next month or next year. In the mean time, I still have SLS and all my amazing followers who make it so worthwhile each week. Thank you for keeping me coming back for more!

I’m a huge Michael Buble fan and this was the first song that popped into my head for the theme, so here it is. I hope you enjoy!

The lyrics are in the video, so I won’t recreate them here. The lyrics were written by Billy Vera.

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 7/8/18

Hey guys. It’s been a pretty rough day. It’s one of those days that I haven’t been able to turn my brain off, and it really doesn’t have anything good to say. Luckily, I pulled my head out long enough to get this posted.

Do you ever wish you could just stop thinking? I mean, it’s nice to think when the ideas are flowing and you feel like you’re moving forward, but sometimes, thoughts aren’t like that. Sometimes, they are wholly unkind. Perhaps we can all find some peace through music this week.

With those rather cryptic remarks, I will now announce our theme this week.  So, let’s put on our thinking caps on, break out our playlists and get to work!  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is think.

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 – Check Yes Juliet by We The Kings

This is yet another band that my daughter introduced me to and I ended up falling in love with. I haven’t followed them much recently, but their first two or three albums were some of my favorites. I’ve seen them perform live on a few occasions, one such night being one of my favorite concerts. I lost my voice and everything!

This song doesn’t have the word “game” in it, but it is about a game, so I figured it fit the theme well enough. I don’t necessarily consider myself old, but when you think about how far technology has come and how fast it happened, I suppose that pretty much ages me. We used to write hand-written notes to each other in elementary and junior high school, and one such note would be a simple little question from a boy to a girl or vice-versa. I also used it for my girlfriends when we were fighting and I was trying to make up with them. “Do you like me?” It would include two answers with little check boxes next to them – “Yes or No”.

While it seemed like a life or death situation back then, it was really just a fun game and I love the reference in this song. I, for one, thought of running away many times when I was younger. Not only that, if Travis Clark was throwing rocks at my window, I would run out of that house so fast, no one could catch me.

I hope you enjoy!

Check yes Juliet
Are you with me?
Rain is falling down on the sidewalk
I won’t go until you come outside
Check yes Juliet
Kill the limbo
I’ll keep tossing rocks at your window
There’s no turning back for us tonight
Lace up your shoes
Eh oh eh oh
Here’s how we do
Run, baby, run
Don’t ever look back
They’ll tear us apart
If you give them the chance
Don’t sell your heart
Don’t say we’re not meant to be
Run, baby, run
Forever we’ll be
You and me
Check yes Juliet
I’ll be waiting
Wishing, wanting
Yours for the taking
Just sneak out
And don’t tell a soul goodbye
Check yes Juliet
Here’s the countdown
Three, two, one, now fall in my arms
Now they can change the locks
Don’t let them change your mind
Lace up your shoes
Eh oh eh oh
Here’s how we do
Run, baby, run
Don’t ever look back
They’ll tear us apart
If you give them the chance
Don’t sell your heart
Don’t say we’re not meant to be
Run, baby, run
Forever we’ll be
You and me
We’re flying through the night
We’re flying through the night
Way up high,
The view from here is getting better with
You by my side
Run, baby, run
Don’t ever look back
They’ll tear us apart
If you give them the chance
Don’t sell your heart
Don’t say we’re not meant to be
Run, baby, run
Forever we’ll be
You and me
Run, baby, run
Don’t ever look back.
They’ll tear us apart
If you give them the chance.
Don’t sell your heart.
Don’t say we’re not meant to be.
Run, baby, run.
Forever we’ll be
You and me.
You and me
You and me

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 7/1/18

I apologize for the lateness of the post. I’m spending the weekend with my Sis, and we were busy cooking dinner and watching the World Cup. I had risotto for the very first time tonight, and it was dynamite. I think my sister is an amazing cook and I am rather lucky to have her here. I also decided to try something new, but I’m more of a baker, so I found an interesting recipe for pistachio, white chocolate chip cookies. I just put the first batch in the oven, so we shall see how they turn out.

Is anyone else watching the World Cup? My hubby and I are having a great time watching it. We had two teams we were following when it started, and unfortunately only one made it to the round of sixteen, so it will be interesting and fun to see if they can move forward.

Which actually brings us to our theme this week.  So, let’s put on our thinking caps on, break out our playlists and get to work!  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is game.

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 Awake by All Time Low

This one lyric has been running through my head all night – “Dreams only last for a night”. I knew the band was All Time Low, but I couldn’t remember exactly which song it was. I’m happy it was an easy Google search to find the perfect song for me today.

There are plenty of songs to choose from for this theme, but I just had to post this one. It speaks to me about life and not giving up, no matter how hard things can be. I’m stuck in a place like that right now, but I am determined not give up.

Besides, All Time Low is just a great Sunday band. They’re upbeat, they have great lyrics, and I’m just in love with them.

I do hope you enjoy!

Caught in a cold sweat stuck splitting hairs
I’m drinking too much
I’m on my way to striking out
Go to sleep with the pressure of everyone
Watching, waiting, they’re yours for the taking
But I still have my doubts
Before you ask which way to go
Remember where you’ve been
Stay awake, get a grip and get out
You’re safe from the weight of the world
Just take a second to set things straight
I’ll be fine even though I’m not always right
I can count on the sun to shine
Dedication takes a lifetime
But dreams only last for a night
Figure it out boy, you’re tripping
So pull yourself together
Or you’ll wash up like the rest
This ship is sinking, I’m thinking I’m done for
I watch as the sails disappear underwater
‘Cause I’m no captain yet
I said, “Before you ask which way to go
Remember where you’ve been”
Stay awake, get a grip and get out
You’re safe from the weight of the world
Just take a second to set things straight
I’ll be fine, even though I’m not always right
I can count on the sun to shine
Dedication takes a lifetime
But dreams only last for a night
Believe you me, I’ll give them everything
I’d tell them anything to show them everything
Believe you me, I’ll give them everything
I’d tell them anything to show them everything
‘Cause you ain’t the only ones who wanna live it up
You ain’t the only ones
You ain’t the only ones who wanna live it up
You ain’t the only ones
You ain’t the only ones who wanna live it up
You ain’t the only ones
You ain’t the only ones who wanna live it up
You ain’t the only ones
Stay awake, get a grip and get out
You’re safe from the weight of the world
Just take a second to set things straight
I’ll be fine, even though I’m not always right
I can count on the sun to shine
Dedication takes a lifetime
But dreams only last for a night
