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 – Count On Me by Bruno Mars

I’m not huge into Bruno Mars these days, but after looking up a few songs for this week’s theme, I ran across this song and remembered how much I love it.  I definitely enjoyed his first CD a lot and his second not quite as much, but I still like both of them more than what  he’s doing now.  The guy can sing, there’s not doubt, and this song is just simple goodness.

I haven’t had a lot of really close friends in my life, but I hope those whom I do consider friends know that I will always be there, no matter what.

I hope you enjoy!

If you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of the sea,
I’ll sail the world to find you
If you ever find yourself lost in the dark and you can’t see,
I’ll be the light to guide you

Find out what we’re made of
When we are called to help our friends in need

You can count on me like one two three
I’ll be there
And I know when I need it I can count on you like four three two
You’ll be there
‘Cause that’s what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah

Whoa, whoa
Oh, oh
Yeah, yeah

If you tossin’ and you’re turnin’ and you just can’t fall asleep
I’ll sing a song
Beside you
And if you ever forget how much you really mean to me
Everyday I will
Remind you

Ooh
Find out what we’re made of
When we are called to help our friends in need

You can count on me like one two three
I’ll be there
And I know when I need it I can count on you like four three two
You’ll be there
‘Cause that’s what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah

Oh, oh
Yeah, yeah

You’ll always have my shoulder when you cry
I’ll never let go
Never say goodbye
You know you can

Count on me like one two three
I’ll be there
And I know when I need it I can count on you like four three two
And you’ll be there
‘Cause that’s what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah

Oh, oh
You can count on me ’cause I can count on you

Song Lyric Sunday – Gorilla by Bruno Mars

This week’s theme is to post songs about sex and I decided to go full on sex.  There are also some pretty “colorful” words.  So, if that’s something that offends you, I strongly suggest you do not read the lyrics or watch the video.

Now that the warning is over, let’s just talk a little bit about Bruno Mars and this song.  I’ve been waiting for the perfect opportunity to post a Bruno Mars song.  The man is freaking talented.  I LOVE his voice so much and he has so much range.   I also think he is a fantastic entertainer; his songs can be so much fun (Uptown Funk)!

This one though… When I first heard it, I was literally shocked.  It is so steamy and so sexy… I love it!  I laugh every time I hear it because it is so blatantly sex.  Some singers try to hide the sex in metaphors and other things, but this is not that.  It is full on getting it on and I enjoy every second of it every time I hear it.

I watched the video for the first time tonight.  It’s a little long and seems to have a sense of a Mexican soap opera, but don’t be fooled.  It has strippers and a steamy scene in a car.  If you’re looking for a sexy, steamy video to go along with the sexy, steamy lyrics, you will not be disappointed.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

Ooh I got a body full of liquor
With a cocaine kicker
And I’m feeling like I’m thirty feet tall
So lay it down, lay it down

You got your legs up in the sky
With the devil in your eyes
Let me hear you say you want it all
Say it now, say it now

Look what you’re doing, look what you’ve done
But in this jungle you can’t run
‘Cause what I got for you
I promise it’s a killer,
You’ll be banging on my chest
Bang bang, gorilla

Ooh, yeah
You and me baby making love like gorillas
Ooh, yeah
You and me baby making love like gorillas

Yeah, I got a fistful of your hair
But you don’t look like you’re scared
You just smile and tell me, “Daddy, it’s yours.”
‘Cause you know how I like it,
You’s a dirty little lover

If the neighbors call the cops,
Call the sheriff, call the SWAT ‒ we don’t stop,
We keep rocking while they’re knocking on our door
And you’re screaming, “Give it to me baby,
Give it to me motherfucker!”

Oh, look what you’re doing, look what you’ve done
But in this jungle you can’t run
‘Cause what I got for you
I promise it’s a killer,
You’ll be banging on my chest
Bang bang, gorilla

Ooh, yeah
You and me baby making love like gorillas
Ooh, yeah
You and me baby making love like gorillas

I bet you never ever felt so good, so good
I got your body trembling like it should, it should
You’ll never be the same baby once I’m done with you
You

Oh, you with me baby making love like gorillas

Ooh, yeah
You and me baby we’ll be fuckin’ like gorillas
Ooh, yeah (Yeah, yeah, baby, baby, oh yeah, yeah)
You and me baby making love like gorillas
