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 – 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 – 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

Song Lyric Sunday – Fields of Gold by Sting

I’m not sure what made me think of this song, but it ended up being perfect.  I haven’t heard this song in ages, but it got me through a pretty bad breakup a lifetime ago.  I listened to it on repeat, crying my eyes out, thinking things would just never get better.  It’s surprising to me how things can change so drastically, given enough time.

I saw Sting perform recently and I was amazed that he still has it.  He is a brilliant performer and I will always love his voice.

I do hope you enjoy!

ou’ll remember me when the west wind moves upon the fields of barley
You’ll forget the sun in his jealous sky as we walk in fields of gold
So she took her love for to gaze awhile upon the fields of barley
In his arms she fell as her hair came down among the fields of gold
Will you stay with me, will you be my love among the fields of barley?
We’ll forget the sun in his jealous sky as we lie in fields of gold
See the west wind move like a lover so upon the fields of barley.
Feel her body rise when you kiss her mouth among the fields of gold
I never made promises lightly and there have been some that I’ve broken
But I swear in the days still left we’ll walk in fields of gold
We’ll walk in fields of gold
Many years have passed since those summer days among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down among the fields of gold
You’ll remember me when the west wind moves upon the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky when we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold, when we walked in fields of gold

Song Lyric Sunday – Stay by Rihanna (ft. Mikky Ekko)

I’m posting this a day early.  To be honest, I normally do that, but for some reason it still feels a little weird today, probably because I’m not at home and I know that I won’t be able to do a whole lot with my blog tomorrow.  I hope that doesn’t stop you all from taking part and checking out each other’s posts.  I truly love all the great songs that are explored each week.

I have to say that I have always loved this song.  I can’t say I’ve heard many Rihanna songs that weren’t played on the radio, but this one just gets me.  It makes me think of my husband.  We haven’t always had it easy and there were times that I wasn’t sure what tomorrow would bring, but I’m grateful every day that we decided to stay.  He is truly my soulmate, my friend and my home.

I hope you enjoy!

All along it was a fever
A cold sweat hot-headed believer
I threw my hands in the air, said, “Show me something”
He said, “If you dare, come a little closer”
Round and around and around and around we go
Oh now, tell me now, tell me now, tell me now you know
Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay
It’s not much of a life you’re living
It’s not just something you take it’s given
Round and around and around and around we go
Oh now, tell me now, tell me now, tell me now you know
Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay
Ooh, ooh, ooh, the reason I hold on
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ’cause I need this hole gone
Funny you’re the broken one but I’m the only one who needed saving
‘Cause when you never see the light it’s hard to know which one of us is caving
Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay, stay
I want you to stay, hooh

Song Lyric Sunday – Nothing Lasts Forever by Maroon 5

I’m taking a drastic turn-about this week from last week’s upbeat song.  I’ve always been a moody person, though, so songs like this one fit me better in some ways.  I’ve been a huge Maroon 5 fan from the very beginning.  I saw them in concert before anyone knew who they were and they had maybe one song on the radio.  They actually opened for Matchbox Twenty (another favorite).  That’s why I was shocked to find that I’ve only posted one song from each band!

I’ve been looking through their libraries the past few weeks, trying to find another song to post.  I’m really happy I came across this one and that it fits the theme this week.  Maroon 5 is growing and changing and I’m not sure I like their new direction, but the jury is still out.  I just listened to a new song and read the lyrics and found myself wondering what happened to the writing and lyrics of their earlier songs.  I find this particular song poignant and sad, but also a good reminder that relationships take work every day, or else you run the risk of growing apart.

I’m happy my hubby and I are getting away tonight, just the two of us, for some much needed relaxation and fun.

I hope you enjoy!

It is so easy to see
Dysfunction between you and me
We must free up these tired souls
Before the sadness kills us both
I tried and tried to let you know
I love you, but I’m letting go
It may not last, but I don’t know
I just don’t know
If you don’t know
Then you can’t care
And you show up
But you’re not there
But I’m waiting
And you want to
Still afraid that I will desert you
Everyday
With every worthless word
We get more far away
The distance between us makes it so hard to stay
But nothing lasts forever; but be honest, babe
It hurts, but it may be the only way
A bed that’s warm with memories
Can heal us temporarily
The misbehaving only makes
The ditch between us so damn deep
Built a wall around my heart
I’ll never let it fall apart
But, strangely, I wish secretly
It would fall down while I’m asleep
If you don’t know
Then you can’t care
And you show up
But you’re not there
But I’m waiting
And you want to
Still afraid that I will desert you, babe
Everyday
With every worthless word
We get more far away
The distance between us makes it so hard to stay
But nothing lasts forever; but be honest, babe
It hurts, but it may be the only way
Though we have not hit the ground
It doesn’t mean we’re not still falling, oh
I want so bad to pick you up
But you’re still too reluctant to accept my help
What a shame; I hope you find somewhere to place the blame
But until then the fact remains…
Everyday
With every worthless word
We get more far away
The distance between us makes it so hard to stay
But nothing lasts forever; but be honest, babe
It hurts, but it may be the only way
Everyday
With every worthless word
We get more far away
The distance between us makes it so hard to stay
But nothing lasts forever; but be honest, babe
It hurts, but it may be the only way
