Song Lyric Sunday – Suddenly I See by KT Tunstall

I first heard this song during a time in my life when I was unsure of so many things.  I listened to it over and over again.  It didn’t actually help me gain more self-confidence, but it was a great catalyst.

I’ve also been waiting for a chance to post something from KT Tunstall.

I hope you enjoy!

Her face is a map of the world
Is a map of the world
You can see she’s a beautiful girl
She’s a beautiful girl
And everything around her is a silver pool of light
The people who surround her feel the benefit of it
It makes you calm
She holds you captivated in her palm
Suddenly I see (suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me
(Suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me
I feel like walking the world
Like walking the world
You can hear she’s a beautiful girl
She’s a beautiful girl
She fills up every corner like she’s born in black and white
Makes you feel warmer when you’re trying to remember
What you heard
She likes to leave you hanging on a wire
Suddenly I see (suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me
(Suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me
And she’s taller than most
And she’s looking at me
I can see her eyes looking from the page of a magazine
Oh, she makes me feel like I could be a tower
A big strong tower, yeah
The power to be
The power to give
The power to see
She got the power to be
The power to give
The power to see, yeah, yeah
(Suddenly I see)
She got the power to be
The power to give
The power to see, yeah, yeah
(Suddenly I see)
She got the power to be
The power to give
The power to see, yeah, yeah
(Suddenly I see)
She got the power to be
The power to give
The power to see, yeah, yeah
Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me
(Suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me
(Suddenly I see)
Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me
(Suddenly I see)
Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 3/25/18

My sister is staying at my house this weekend, so I would apologize for being slightly late in posting, but I’m enjoying her company so much, I can’t really bring myself to do it.

With that in mind, I really don’t have much time to post this, so I’m going to get right to it.  Luckily, I had some help from Sarah at On The Way to the Barre.  Please give her a huge thanks for coming up with our theme this week and check out her blog!

Now, let’s get our thinking caps on, break out our playlists and get to work!  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “seeing”.

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 – Into the West by Annie Lennox

I don’t even know how I happened onto this song today.  I was looking up different bands, trying to find the word “shadow” in the lyrics of songs.  I don’t know if I glanced at the side bar on YouTube where they have recommended videos and saw Lord of the Rings, but suddenly I realized that the Lord of the Rings soundtracks would definitely have songs with shadows in them.

I was totally right!  I almost went with the song from The Fellowship of the Ring, but then I remembered this one.  It’s from Return of the King and is definitely one of my favorite songs.  My sister and I actually sang this song at my aunt’s funeral.  It was one of those songs that I couldn’t get through without crying, but I sure gave it my best shot.

The song was written by Annie Lennox, Fran Walsh and Howard Shore.  It played at one of the most poignant parts of the movie and it will forever be etched in my memory and heart.

I hope you enjoy (the lyrics are in the video)!

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 3/18/18

This week has been nuts.  I ended up with a huge project at work, so I’m working twelve hour days and weekends.  I’m posting this right before going into the office for probably an eight hour spell on a Saturday.  I love my day job, but sometimes it can be overwhelming.  One thing that helps with the stress and keeps me going is music.  I love music and I love sharing it with you guys.

It’s pretty bleak in my neck of the woods today.  Winter is on us in full force, even though everyone around me seems to think we should be having Spring.  The really dumb thing is that in between snow days, we have sixty degree days.  It makes for some pretty schizophrenic weather.  Not that the theme has anything much to do with today’s theme.  It’s more just the way it feels.

So, with that slightly macabre introduction, let’s get our thinking caps on, break out our playlists and get to work!  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “shadow”.

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 – Live Forever by Oasis

This one might be a slight stretch on the theme this week, but I just had to post an Oasis song.  My manager is a huge follower of Oasis, and he just went to see Noel Gallagher live in Las Vegas this weekend.  It’s so amazing when you get to see your favorite band or singer live.  Unfortunately, the group is no longer together, but their music lives on!

I haven’t followed Oasis like I have other bands, but I’ve always loved their music when I’ve heard it.  When I first started checking them out (because my manager doesn’t shut up about the Gallagher brothers), I realized that their music has been featured in movies and television shows quite a bit.  So, I was pretty familiar with a few of their songs, including this one.

To me, this song speaks of unity – “I think you’re the same as me”.  I realize we are all different in so many ways, but we are also the same.  We are all humans living on this planet, trying to find happiness.  The more we can realize those similarities and come together to make changes, the better off we will be.  Let’s “live forever” together!

Also, I found this really cool video with Liam Gallagher performing the song with Coldplay in Manchester.  I decided to choose that one instead of the official Oasis video, because I just love it when singers/bands unite to perform great music!

I hope you enjoy!

Maybe I don’t really wanna know
How your garden grows cos I just want to fly
Lately, did you ever feel the pain?
In the morning rain as it soaks you to the bone
Maybe I just want to fly I want to live I don’t want to die
Maybe I just want to breathe maybe I just don’t believe
Maybe you’re the same as me we see things they’ll never see you and I
were gonna live forever
I said maybe I don’t really wanna know
How your garden grows cos I just want to fly
Lately, did you ever feel the pain?
In the morning rain as it soaks you to the bone
Maybe I will never be all the things that I want to be
But now is not the time to cry now’s the time to find out why
I think you’re the same as me we see things they’ll never see you and I
We’re gonna live forever
Maybe I don’t really wanna know
How your garden grows cos I just want to fly
Lately, did you ever feel the pain?
In the morning rain as it soaks you to the bone
Maybe I just want to fly I want to live I don’t want to die
Maybe I just want to breathe maybe I just don’t believe
Maybe you’re the same as me we see things they’ll never see you and I
You and I are gonna live forever
We’re gonna live forever
Gonna live forever
Gonna live forever
Gonna live forever
Gonna live forever
Gonna live forever

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 3/11/18

I love it when you guys help me out.  Coming up with the theme each week can be fun, but it can also be difficult, especially when I’m trying to keep it all new and fresh.  I also need to factor in that not all themes will have a ton of music selection.  I do try to think of you guys when I’m theme shopping.

I received a lovely email from Felicia Denise a few weeks back, and she gave me a list of themes to use.  Unfortunately, we’ve already explored all of them except for one, which I’m excited and grateful to use today.  Thank you so much for your help and willingness to step into the ring and offer up some ideas.

 

So, get your thinking caps on, break out your playlists and let’s get to work!  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “unity”.  Please make sure to thank Felicia for her help this week, and check out her blog as well (I linked to it above)!

SoCS – So Far Away

Isn’t it crazy how we torment our poor bodies?  I don’t know about you, but it seems the older I become, the more I can feel the torment.  It’s as if my body is saying, “Please stop feeding me so much, and please exercise!”  I’ve had points in my life where I said I would never exercise and I would eat what I wanted because life is too short, I love food, etc.  However, I’m starting to realize that maybe I won’t live so long if I continue in that particular manner.

I know I’ve been talking some this year about exercise and finding my new healthy me, but it hasn’t really happened.  I started on my lovely elliptical in January, overdid it and ended up sick for the next month.  I’m honestly scared to get back on it because I am one of those people who goes all in when I make my mind up to do something.  I’m starting to realize that after 40, you just don’t recover from things as quickly.

It’s hard to be patient.  I sit here and think about how I want to be lighter, healthier and more fit, and it seems so far away.  If only it was an easy thing to just enjoy the process along the way.

I did start a diet this last week.  I really dislike publicizing that, but maybe it’s a good thing to just let it all out.  I was planning to start exercising at the same time, but I actually listened to my body this time and realized that it probably couldn’t handle that much stress.  I know it’s been less than a week since I started, but honestly, I actually feel lighter today.  The scale probably wouldn’t agree with me, but I can feel my body changing.  Even if it’s only the lack of an awful lot of really crappy food in my body, it just feels better.

The other thing I did differently this time is that I didn’t step on the scale last week.  I know I should probably have a starting point so I know where to end up, but honestly, that’s pressure too.  I know myself, and that scale is just too harsh of a reality for me when I’m trying to stay positive and motivated.  The one thing that’s nice is that your clothes are perfectly happy to tell you where you’re at.  They don’t give you a number, but they do start to loosen up a little at a time.

So, there you have it.  My goals still seem so far away, but honestly, I’m starting to settle into this whole thing, and no matter where I end up on the scale, at least I feel healthier today and now.
