Song Lyric Sunday – Hole In My Soul by Apocalyptica

I came into this thinking I knew exactly what song I was going to choose. I picked the theme based on the song, after all. I was listening to my music library on shuffle on Friday and heard a song that had the word “soul” in it, but I couldn’t find it this morning. Oh well, there are other songs to choose from, I just had to find one.

I finally ending up doing a Google search and came across this song. It is new to me as of today, but I absolutely love it. I may have to check out more of this band. I thought I’d seen their name before, but I thought they were something completely different. However, since I ended up falling in love with this song, I’m going to say that it wasn’t a bad thing that I was surprised.

Now that I’ve done yet another Google search, I’ve found that my memory wasn’t wrong. They are a Finnish cello metal band from Finland, which means that maybe I was lucky that this one wasn’t too metal for me (because there is such a thing).

I do hope you enjoy!

It’s getting dark and I’m lost in the woods
I’d find a way out if I knew where to look
If I could, I’d rip this page out of my book
I’m confused and misguided and my faith is beside me
I’ve got a hole in my soul where you use to be
There’s a thorn in my heart and it’s killing me
I wish I could go back and do it all differently
‘Cause now there’s a hole in my soul where you use to be
A fire inside but my bloods turning cold
I’m walking alone down this desolate road
Yesterday feels like a life time ago
The memories are fading, my dreams are all changing
I’ve got a hole in my soul where you use to be
There’s a thorn in my heart and it’s killing me
I wish I could go back and do it all differently
‘Cause now there’s a hole in my soul where you use to be
There’s a hole in my heart, in my life, in my way
And it’s filled with regret and all I did, to push you away
If there’s still a place in your life, in your heart for me
I would do anything, so don’t ask me to leave
I’ve got a hole in my soul where you use to be
You’re the thorn in my heart and you’re killing me
I wish I could go back and do it all differently
I wish that I’d treated you differently
‘Cause now there’s a hole in my soul where you use to be

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 11/11/18

After the crazy weekend last time around (my standards have seriously changed lately on what I consider a busy weekend), we decided to take it easy. That didn’t stop me from trying to clean my house today. It didn’t take me long to realize that my back just doesn’t allow me to do certain things anymore. I suppose I should feel lucky that housecleaning appears to be out. I honestly just feel sad about it. Plus, it appears we will most likely need to hire someone to clean the house, which is another monthly expense and added stress. Maybe I should stick to the grateful part?

Anyway, I am going to get to the theme today. I came up with one you just might like, since it has a few different directions you can take it. I’m looking forward to seeing how it inspires your music choices. Let’s put on our thinking caps, break out our playlists and get to work!  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is soul.

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

Song Lyric Sunday – She Takes Me High by We The Kings

I thought I’d used this song before, so I was happy to find that I hadn’t. It fits perfectly this week and I forgot how happy this song makes me. It’s a pretty dreary day in my neck of the woods and this song was the perfect antidote.

This song makes me think of young love and how magical falling in love can be. There’s also something magical about the love you have after you’ve been with someone for a few years and things are jut clicking. Relationships are hard and they aren’t always fun, but I will always believe they’re worth it.
Here’s to love, in all it’s amazing forms. I hope you all have or find someone who takes you high.
Happy Sunday!
Last nights dream
We rode our bikes
To our tree house by the sea
And there we laid and said we’d never leave.
Last nights dream
I promised you would have
The whole world at your feet
And that we’d lay
On a bed we made of leaves.
And we both know
You’re everything I need
And now I know
What she does to me
She takes me high
She takes me high
She takes me high
She takes me high
She wakes me up
She breaks me down
Shes got me 10 feet off the ground
She takes me high, high
She takes me high tonight
Last nights dream
We drove your car
To the dead end of your street
And we made love where no one else could see.
Last nights dream
I held your hand
And asked if you would be
Forever mine, together you and me.
And we both know
You’re everything I need
And now I know
What she does to me
She takes me high
She takes me high
She takes me high
She takes me high
She wakes me up
She breaks me down
Shes got me 10 feet off the ground
She takes me high tonight.
Ill keep sleeping
If I don’t stop dreaming
I would stop my breathing for you
I’m not leaving
This life I’m dreaming
Cause I cant stop living with you.
She takes me high
She takes me high
She takes me high
She takes me high
She wakes me up
She breaks me down
Shes got me 10 feet off the ground
She takes me high, high
She takes me high tonight

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 11/4/18

I have a busy day today. I’m meeting my sister for lunch, then we’re going to get our tattoo worked on. While I’m stoked to get a new tattoo (even if it’s only adding to one I already have) I have to keep reminding myself that it’s going to hurt. Also, the after-care is the part I like the least. But, I’m excited to spend time with my sister and for the new finished product.

I don’t really have much else for today, so let’s juts 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 take/taking.

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.

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
