Song Lyric Sunday : August 16, 2020 – Clear/Dark/Light

Hello it’s Sunday again and time for Jim Adams Song Lyric Sunday. This week the prompt is : August 16, 2020 – Clear/Dark/Light

Let’s start with Clear I picked my favourite singer song writer Imogen Heap and Clear the Area.

The track comes from her Speak for Yourself  which was the second solo album by British singer Imogen Heap, following her collaborative effort with Guy Sigsworth as Frou Frou. The album was released in the UK and the US in 2005. It was written, produced, arranged, and funded by Heap, without the backing of a record label, and features guest appearances from Jeff Beck, who provides a guitar solo on “Goodnight and Go“, and Heap’s ex-boyfriend, Richie Mills, who argues with her on “The Moment I Said It”.

Not sure of the true meaning of the lyrics but I see it as a friend checking up on a friend/ lover after a heavy night…drugs, drink, sex what ever. I truly love this song !

“Clear The Area”

Knock, knock…are you alone?
No one’s out here and I was not followed.
Love, love…you’re already home.
Party’s over and you don’t look so good.

You find your way back down.
And I’ll keep the area clear…please clear the area.
When you find your way back down…in one piece.
Then I’ll just be waiting here…right here.

Low light…mercury morning…
No need to stay as it’s always nothing.
But your eyes tell a whole other story…and I feel the weight of the world.
Won’t talk…Won’t try…just move…
It’s too still in your sadness.
Cry…give up…it’s okay…
You’ve just got to trust me.

You find your way back down.
And I’ll keep the area clear…please clear the area.
When you find your way back down…in one piece.
Then I’ll just be waiting here…right here.

Slowly…darling…nobody means anymore to me than you
If you’re in…baby then I’m in (into this)…with you, always.
Careful…close to the edge…(You’re scaring me)
Fall in to my arms….(where did it all fall?)
Fall…into love…love…

You find your way back down.
And I’ll keep the area clear…please clear the area.
When you find your way back down…in one piece.
Then I’ll just be waiting here…right here.

You find your way back down.
Way back down,
And I’ll keep the area clear…please clear the area.
When you find your way back down…in one piece.
Then I’ll just be waiting here…right here.

Next Dark Horse by Katie Perry, I chose the non rap version because I prefer it. 😊

Dark Horse” is a song by American singer Katy Perry featuring rapper Juicy J. It was originally released on September 17, 2013, by Capitol Records as the first promotional single from Perry’s fourth studio albumPrism (2013). Three months later, it was released as the third official single on December 17. Both artists co-wrote the song with its producers, Max MartinCirkut, and Dr. Luke, alongside Sarah Hudson. It was conceived by Perry and Hudson during a writing session in Perry’s hometown of Santa Barbara, California, and Juicy J was later commissioned for a verse on the song.

Dark Horse” combines the genres of poptraphip hop and electropop, replicating what has been described as a “Southern raptechno mashup”. The track features a minimal production, with a “seductive” and “mature” tone to Perry’s vocals, while Juicy J is featured on the song’s intro and rapped bridge. Perry, in interviews, said she wanted the song to have a “witchy, spell-y kind of black magic-y idea”, so she wrote it from the perspective of a witch warning a man not to fall in love with her because if he does, she will be his last. The song was part of a competition sponsored by Pepsi in which fans could vote via Twitter on whether they would prefer either “Dark Horse” or “Walking on Air” to be released as the first promotional single from Prism.

“Dark Horse” was a commercial success, charting at number one in Canada, the Netherlands and the United States. It also reached the top ten in almost 20 countries including New Zealand, United Kingdom, Sweden and Venezuela as well as the Digital Songs chart of Billboard magazine.[1] Billboard credits “Dark Horse” for helping cement trap music‘s place on the charts.[2] Perry first performed the song live at the 2013 iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas on September 20, 2013. The song’s first major television performance was at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards on January 26, 2014.[3] “Dark Horse” was nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards. The song has sold 13.2 million units (combined sales and track-equivalent streams), becoming the second best-selling song worldwide for 2014. As of 2019, it is one of the best selling songs in digital history.

Finally one of my favourite Rolling Stones tracks from their Album Their Satanic Majestie’s Request. 2000 Light Years From Home.

2000 Light Years from Home” is a song from the Rolling Stones‘ 1967 psychedelic rock album Their Satanic Majesties Request.[4] Written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, it also appeared as the B-side to the American single “She’s a Rainbow“, and charted as a single in Germany.

Jagger reportedly wrote the lyrics in Brixton prison following his conviction on drug charges in June 1967.[5] The song was recorded by the band at Olympic Studios during July and September 1967.[1] The working title of the instrumental backing was “Toffee Apple”. Brian Jones performs prominent accompaniment on Mellotron.

The number was regularly featured during the Stones’ 1989–90 Steel Wheels/Urban Jungle Tours; until 1997, when “She’s a Rainbow” was also added to the band’s stage repertoire, it was the only track from Satanic Majesties that the band had performed in concert. For the first time in 23 years, The Rolling Stones played “2000 Light Years from Home” on 29 June 2013 at The Glastonbury Festival.

“2000 Light Years From Home”

Sun turnin’ ’round with graceful motion
We’re setting off with soft explosion
Bound for a star with fiery oceans
It’s so very lonely, you’re a hundred light years from home
Freezing red deserts turn to dark
Energy here in every part
It’s so very lonely, you’re six hundred light years from home
It’s so very lonely, you’re a thousand light years from home
It’s so very lonely, you’re a thousand light years from home
Bell flight fourteen you now can land
Seen you on Aldebaran, safe on the green desert sand
It’s so very lonely, you’re two thousand light years from home
It’s so very lonely, you’re two thousand light years from home

Happy Sunday Everyone 😁

Sue Vincent’s Thursday Photo Prompt. Dark.

This is my entry for Sue Vincent of Daily Echo’s #writephoto Dark.

This week I wanted to do a poem so I hope it fits in okay.

Rules and Pingback Here

The Dark.

The dark fell covering everything

Crushing silence, no birds sing

The Vampires amassed in evil

Their leaders owned by the devil.

The Werewolf sleeps in sanctuary

Soon she’ll wake.Her path to see.

War is here it can be felt in the air

The five races have to prepare.

The Witch and Elf have Hope in their care.

The humans have no idea.

The Dwarfs are no longer here.

What will become of them all

Now that the Dark is about to fall.

You can read the rest of the story so far at The Vampire, the Witch and the Werewolf.

Abandoned: Nonet.

Empty flat abandoned left in a hurry.
Displaced cups and plates randomly
Decorate the dark  hallway
Clothes litter the lounge
Quiet and all is
Out of place, of
Occupant
Not a
Trace!

Just Jot It January: Dull Days

Dull days  full of  rain

Will the sun ever  shine

On my tired  face  again.

Empty days like a shrine

To  a former brighter life

Gone  all  hopes of mine

No  warmth  only strife.

 

Long dark lonely  nights

Muddled  thoughts attack my head

I am tied down unable  to take flight

Agonies and fears circle my bed

There is no where to run

Was it too much to ask

To enjoy  a  growing bundle of fun

Sadly it seems  not to be my task……..

Empty House Nonet : Day 8 Nano Poblano

Silence creeps around  the old  dark house

All quiet, quiet as a mouse .

Suddenly bang goes the door

Louder than ever before.

It was the north wind

Rushing right through

Dancing leaves

Lifted

High.

Autumn Thoughts.

All the leaves are dancing  swirling down

Undulating  in the breeze round and round

Tumbling  rumblings underground

Urgently  creatures searching for   their stores underground.

Mists  in the mornings, chilly  nights soon be fireworks after  Halloween  frights!

New seasons  Harvest Moon, witches and pumpkin men  will be here soon!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

The sun’s heat  is  waning  and the nights  are drawing in

Chilly winds are swooping round corners and  whipping up  the leaves

Early morning porridge, make sure  you wrap up the cold will nip your skin.

Summer sadly  has taken her up her shoes and left us the dark mornings to grieve.

Ready  for the harvest ready  for shorter  days

Time to get out  your  winter  coats  and your furry boots

The long  and lazy days  of  summer  have vanished in a haze.

Cars  driving with their lights on early, listen out for their  warning toots!

NaBloPoMo Wet Night , Chocolate Fun Haiku

Walking home in the darkling

Car lights pavement sparkling

Walking home in the dark rain.

 

 

Hurry hurry heading home,rush zone

Finish work get gone

Work done time for family fun.

 

Warm and soft melts in the mouth

Orgasmic on the tongue

Eyes roll, don’t care if you frown

 

Joy , joy dark brown velvet chocolate

Lick my fingers quick

Nothing else my need will sate!
