Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 12/9/18

This week was better than last week. I was, at least, able to make it to the day job every day. Unfortunately, I still have tests in my future. I’m just hoping that they’ll be able to find something so I can at least have a direction that helps me to get completely better.

I had lots of ideas swirling around in my head all week, but I never really landed on one for the SLS theme. It makes today super hard. It always seems to go by so much faster when I don’t have a plan. I do hope the one I settled on will be a fun one for you all to explore. I was trying to think of something that relates to the season, but not in an obvious way. Choosing this theme also gives me one for the next (as I’m sure you will guess).

Anyway, let’s just 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 boys.

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 – The Flame by Cheap Trick

I’ve been thinking of this song since I posted the theme last week, and luckily it serves as a choice for both weeks. This isn’t really my genre, but I just had to post it since it was so persistent in my head all week.

I remember listening to this song in junior high school. It was one of my favorites. I’ve always wanted someone to love me this way, and I do believe I’ve finally found it. It’s been a rough few months, but I feel that we’re stronger than we’ve ever been.

As cheesy as this song is and this all sounds, I just needed a little bit of it on this snowy Sunday morning.

I hope you enjoy this blast from the past!

Another night slowly closes in
And I feel so lonely
Touching heat freezing on my skin
I pretend you still hold me
I’m going crazy, I’m losing sleep
I’m in too far, I’m in way too deep over you
I can’t believe you’re gone
You were the first, you’ll be the last
Wherever you go, I’ll be with you
Whatever you want, I’ll give it to you
Whenever you need someone
To lay your heart and head upon
Remember, after the fire, after all the rain
I will be the flame
I will be the flame
Watching shadows move across the wall
I feel so frightened
I wanna run to you, I wanna call
But I’ve been hit by lightning
Just can’t stand up for fallin’ apart
Can’t see through this veil across my heart, over you
You’ll always be the one
You were the first, you’ll be the last
Wherever you go, I’ll be with you
Whatever you want, I’ll give it to you
Whenever you need someone
To lay your heart and head upon
Remember, after the fire, after all the rain
I will be the flame
I will be the flame
I’m going crazy, I’m losing sleep
I’m in too far, I’m in way too deep over you
You’ll always be the one
You were the first, you’ll be the last
Wherever you go, I’ll be with you
Whatever you want, I’ll give it to you
Whenever you need someone
To lay your heart and head upon
Remember, after the fire, after all the rain
I will be the flame
I will be the flame
Whatever you want, I’ll give it to you
Wherever you go, I’ll be with you
And whatever you want, I’ll give it to you

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 12/2/18

Last week is almost a blur. I ended up getting sick the Sunday before Thanksgiving and I was sick up until yesterday. I went to the ER twice this week, and they still can’t really tell me what’s wrong; but they did give me some medication that seems to be working. I’m finally starting to feel like myself again, and it feels nice.

I hope that explains why I missed posting a song for my own prompt last week. I’ve felt bad about it ever since, but I just wasn’t up to posting anything on Sunday. The only reason I even posted a theme was because I know how much you guys love it and I just couldn’t let you down.

Hopefully, this means I’m back in more ways than just posting the theme. I’ve also really missed taking part in commenting and listening to your selections. I am so thankful you all love it so much that you visit each other’s blogs and really make this a blog-hop worth continuing.

With all of that, I think it’s time to just 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 last.

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 11/25/18

I did something yesterday that I haven’t done in years; maybe even more than ten years, which is crazy that’s its actually taken so long. I put up a Christmas tree. The best part was that my boys helped and my hubby was there to join in the laughs and take pictures. I wasn’t expecting it to be such a cozy, family thing, but I was so happy that it naturally happened that way. I also realized that it was the first Christmas tree in our new house and the first one that my hubby and I have had since we’ve been together.

I was such a Grinch last year, but it didn’t make me happy; so this year, I’ve been determined to be as festive as possible. So far, it’s been working out perfectly.

But enough about me. Since it sort of fits with everything that happened yesterday, let’s just 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 first.

Song Lyric Sunday – Listen by Beyonce

I’m assuming someone else will choose this one as well, but I just couldn’t not post this one. As soon as I came up with the theme, this song started playing in my head. I just finished listening to it, and I have the chills. It is such a powerful song and Beyonce is masterful in her craft, to say the least.

I didn’t realize how powerful the lyrics were until I just read them. Wow. I’ve been that person who was told they weren’t good enough. It is such an empowering place when you finally realize your worth and walk away from the person who was holding you back.

I do hope you enjoy!

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Listen to the song here in my heart
A melody I start but can’t complete
Listen to the sound from deep within
Its only beginning to find release
Oh the time has come for my dreams to be heard
They will not be pushed aside and turned
Into your own, all ’cause you won’t listen
Listen, I am alone at a crossroads
I’m not at home in my own home
And I’ve tried and tried
To say what’s on my mind
You should have known
Now I’m done believing you
You don’t know what I’m feeling
I’m more than what
You’ve made of me
I followed the voice, you gave to me
But now I’ve gotta find my own
You should have listened
There was someone here inside
Someone I thought had died
So long ago
Oh I’m screaming out
And my dreams will be heard
They will not be pushed aside or turned
Into your own
All ’cause you won’t listen
Listen, I am alone at a crossroads
I’m not at home in my own home
And I’ve tried and tried
To say what’s on my mind
You should have known
Now I’m done believing you
You don’t know what I’m feeling
I’m more than what
You’ve made of me
I followed the voice, you gave to me
But now I’ve gotta find my own
I don’t know where I belong
But I’ll be moving on
If you don’t, if you won’t
Listen to the song here in my heart
A melody I start, but I will complete
Now I am done believing you
You don’t know not what I am feeling
I’m more than what you’ve made of me
I followed the voice you think you gave to me
But now I got to find my own, my own

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 11/18/18

Today really got away from me. I was sitting here relaxing and crocheting when I suddenly remembered that it was Saturday and I hadn’t posted the theme yet. I meant to do it before I left for a party today, but I ran out of time. I do apologize for the lateness of it, but at least I remembered, right?

I’m going to keep this short and just 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 listen.

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
