Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 11/26/17

I am admittedly obsessive/compulsive but I am also a procrastinator, which doesn’t lend itself well to certain chores around the house.  I’ve spent most of the day today on a mission to fix a few things that have been bugging me since we moved in.  While finding a hex nut for our futon should have been a one and done sort of deal, I’ve now made a trip to Walmart and one to Lowe’s and I still don’t have the right one.  I suppose I should have thought of taking the darn screw with me the first time around, but I was trying to make it “easy” on my self.  Who knew you couldn’t really eyeball the size of a hex nut…

I’m not sure if I’m describing obsessive behavior, except that I’ve been obsessing about it all day and I would still love to run to the store to get the right one, but my back is seizing and I’m late with this post, so I guess it will have to wait until tomorrow.  Also, you can laugh all you want.  Neither me or the hubby are handy people, so the fact that I’m doing this at all is pretty much a miracle.

All of this leads us, in a very round about way, to our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week, which is “obsession”.  

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!

I’m teaming up with Simply Marquessa  and this week’s SLS theme was inspired by her weekly flash fiction theme: “Don’t look for what you don’t want to find” from the song Back it Up by Prince Royce.

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 – When We Were Young by Adele

I know I just shared an Adele song, but this one fit so perfectly and is honestly my absolute favorite song of hers that I just had to share it.  I still cry when I hear this song, and I don’t know what it is about it or why.  It for sure touches a chord.

It doesn’t help that Adele has (in my opinion) the perfect voice and can belt a song out like no one’s business.  I also love the candid moment in this video when she finishes the song and is surprised at what she did.

I know I’ve been bitching a lot about my health and what a hard year it’s been, but this song makes me realize that I struggled a lot when I was younger in different ways, and it was only almost five years ago that I stumbled into the happiest time of my life.  Sure, we’ve had some health issues this year, but I’ve never been so in love and so happy.  It’s the first time in my life that I’ve felt this kind of peace and I am beyond grateful.

This is yet another song dedicated to the man in my life… here’s hoping this year made it so we have many, many more years together.

I hope you all enjoy the song (if you haven’t already heard it).

Everybody loves the things you do
From the way you talk
To the way you move
Everybody here is watching you
‘Cause you feel like home
You’re like a dream come true
But if by chance you’re here alone
Can I have a moment
Before I go?
‘Cause I’ve been by myself all night long
Hoping you’re someone I used to know

You look like a movie
You sound like a song
My God, this reminds me
Of when we were young

Let me photograph you in this light
In case it is the last time
That we might be exactly like we were
Before we realized
We were sad of getting old
It made us restless
It was just like a movie
It was just like a song

I was so scared to face my fears
Nobody told me that you’d be here
And I swore you moved overseas
That’s what you said, when you left me

You still look like a movie
You still sound like a song
My God, this reminds me
Of when we were young

Let me photograph you in this light
In case it is the last time
That we might be exactly like we were
Before we realized
We were sad of getting old
It made us restless
It was just like a movie
It was just like a song

When we were young
When we were young
When we were young
When we were young

It’s hard to win me back
Everything just takes me back
To when you were there
To when you were there
And a part of me keeps holding on
Just in case it hasn’t gone
I guess I still care
Do you still care?

It was just like a movie
It was just like a song
My God, this reminds me
Of when we were young

When we were young
When we were young
When we were young
When we were young

Let me photograph you in this light
In case it is the last time
That we might be exactly like we were
Before we realized
We were sad of getting old
It made us restless
Oh, I’m so mad I’m getting old
It makes me reckless
It was just like a movie
It was just like a song
When we were young

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 11/19/17

I don’t know about you, but it seems that when I turned 40, all sorts of new things started happening with my body that had never happened before and I came to the realization that I was “getting old”.  I know, I know; I’m not that old, and there are many people out there who are way older than me and have so many more health issues than I do, but this year has just been rough.  I’m honestly ready for a change; one that doesn’t include hospitals and doctors.

We are almost to the end of this year and we have one more surgery under our belt (hubby had to go under the knife again, poor guy).  I’m hoping we’ve seen the end of it, but honestly, life does happen and all we can do is roll with it.  At least there is good music to listen to, and friends to share it with.

All of this, of course, leads us to our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week: “growing old”.  

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!

I’m teaming up with Simply Marquessa  and this week’s SLS theme was inspired by her weekly flash fiction theme: “…I swear you get better looking with every year…your sexual peak, your full figure physique…”

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

Song Lyric Sunday – When I Was Your Man by Bruno Mars

I was a pretty big fan of Bruno Mars when he first came out, but I honestly don’t care much for his most recent stuff.  My kids also enjoyed listening to him and we would jam pretty hard core to his first and second albums.  Jaxon heard his second album before I did and he actually played this song for me because I think he knew I’d like it.

I don’t know what it is about relationships, but it seems like some people don’t realize what they have until it’s gone.  This has actually happened to me at least twice and it’s pretty awkward sitting on the other side of things, listening to an apology but knowing it’s already too late.  If only they’d have realized it before you moved on, right?

I’m thinking the guy singing this just might totally deserve the pain he’s enduring… When I first heard the song, I thought it was beautiful so I’m not sure why I’m being so cynical about it now.  I’m thinking that it shouldn’t be so hard to apologize and admit you’re wrong at the time rather than waiting until it’s too late.

I do love Bruno’s voice, though, so I hope you enjoy!

Same bed but it feels just a little bit bigger now
Our song on the radio but it don’t sound the same
When our friends talk about you, all it does is just tear me down
‘Cause my heart breaks a little when I hear your name

It all just sounds like ooh, ooh ooh hoo hoo
Mm, too young, too dumb to realize
That I should have bought you flowers
And held your hand
Should have gave you all my hours
When I had the chance
Take you to every party ’cause all you wanted to do was dance

Now my baby’s dancing
But she’s dancing with another man

My pride, my ego, my needs, and my selfish ways
Caused a good strong woman like you to walk out my life
Now I never, never get to clean up the mess I made, oh
And it haunts me every time I close my eyes

It all just sounds like ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh
Mm, too young, too dumb to realize
That I should have bought you flowers
And held your hand
Should have gave you all my hours
When I had the chance
Take you to every party ’cause all you wanted to do was dance

Now my baby’s dancing
But she’s dancing with another man

Although it hurts
I’ll be the first to say that I was wrong
Oh, I know I’m probably much too late
To try and apologize for my mistakes
But I just want you to know

I hope he buys you flowers
I hope he holds your hand
Give you all his hours
When he has the chance
Take you to every party
‘Cause I remember how much you loved to dance
Do all the things I should have done
When I was your man
Do all the things I should have done
When I was your man

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 11/12/17

This week, the lyric Simply Marquessa chose was: “God knows I never meant to hurt you…I never meant take it that far…” I do believe that we’ve done similar themes to the one I chose this week, but I believe we usually all have several choices to any one given theme, so I’m sure we can all come up with something.

Sometimes, songs have a way of saying what we just can’t put into words.  I’ve tried to use songs to convey this particular message, but it didn’t work as well as I thought it would.  I’m thinking that when you hurt someone, the best apologies are those given in person where you can look someone in the eyes so they can see your sincerity.  It also works when the apology is forced, because I don’t know about you, but I can always tell when it lacks sincerity.

All that being said, let’s just get right into it.  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “apology/sorry”.  

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
