Song Lyric Sound. April 24, 2022 – Feelings.

Jim Adams

Its Sunday again 😮and time for Jim Adam’s Song Lyric Sunday April 24, 2022 – Di of pensitivity101 has suggested Anxiety, Delight, Emotions, Pain, Pride, Relief !

First up I chose Somebody that I used to know by Goyte. I really love this song I believe it embodies all the emotions that Di mentions in her prompt except herhaps delight! We have all had times were we have stayed in a relationship too long just existing, only to be relieved by the other person saying let’s end it and stay friends. Then they cut you off completely and that really hurts however much you pretend it doesn’t because it tamples over your pride and emotions.

Somebody That I Used to Know” is a song by Belgian-Australian singer-songwriter Gotye, featuring New Zealand singer Kimbra. The song was released in Australia and New Zealand by Eleven Music on 5 July 2011 as the second single from Gotye’s third studio album, Making Mirrors (2011). It was later released by Universal Music in December 2011 in the United Kingdom, and 20 January 2012 in the United States and Ireland. “Somebody That I Used to Know” was written and recorded by Gotye at his parents’ house on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia, and is lyrically related to the experiences he has had with relationships.

Commercially, “Somebody That I Used to Know” was a global success and became both artists’ signature song. It reached atop of the charts in the US, UK, Australia and New Zealand, as well as 25 other official charts, and reached the top 10 in more than 30 countries around the world. It was the most commercially successful song of 2011 in Flanders (Belgium), the most successful song of 2012 in Wallonia (Belgium), Canada, Israel, the UK, and the US, and the most successful song of the 2010s decade by an Australian artist in Australia. It is certified Multiplatinum in ten countries, including Diamond in Australia. The song has sold more than 13 million copies worldwide, becoming one of the best-selling digital singles of all time. In addition to the Hot 100, it was also placed at the top of Billboards year-end Adult Pop Songs and Alternative Songs charts and many other charts around the world.

Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it’s an ache I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Like resignation to the end
Always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I’ll admit that I was glad that it was over

But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened
And that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough
You didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
I guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believing it was always something that I’d done
And I don’t wanna live that way
Reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn’t catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know…

But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened
And that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough
You didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
I guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Somebody
I used to know
Somebody
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know
Somebody
I used to know
Somebody
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know
I used to know
That I used to know
I used to know
Somebody…

Again all the emotions are here. When one word that terrible argument in the early hours that escalates to violence , anger, fear everything except delight again.

Its Immie, my favourite with The Moment I said it.

Now I must find some delight. Well I have chosen Avenue Beat with Delight for no other reason than I like it and it fits the bill and after the first two songs we need something cheery 💜💜

.

Avenue Beat was an American girl group from Quincy, Illinois, composed of members Sami Bearden, Savana Santos and Sam Backoff. Backoff and Santos were friends growing up and met Bearden at a theater camp in high school. The trio then began traveling back and forth to Nashville where they became based. The group got signed to The Valory Music Co. and Tape Room Records. In September 2021, Sami Bearden parted ways with the band after deciding she no longer wanted to pursue a music career. On October 15, 2021, Avenue Beat disbanded following the release of their first and final album, The Debut Farewell Album, with Santos and Backoff citing that they wanted to support their friend and did not want to continue the band without Bearden.

Delight”

Do you know how much it took for me?
To tell you that I think you’re fine as hell
And do you wanna grab a bite to eat?
I got this coupon to taco bell
You say you can’t right now and when I ask you why
You finally let it out, you say I’m not your type

But I’m a freakin’ delight
I’m a freakin’ delight
I got more bite than a California Zoo
And if you ask my momma she gonna tell you the truth
That I’m a freakin’ delight
I’m a freakin’ delight
I got more pop than a shook up mountain dew
If that’s not what you like
There must be something wrong with you
Cuz I’m a freakin’ delight
I’m a freakin’ delight
I’m a freakin’ delight

I see my family every holiday
That’s when they love to wreck my self-esteem
Ask me why I never bring a date
I think the first verse covered everything
Say I need a real job
I tell them all, please
I get to sing my songs and everybody thinks

I’m a freakin’ delight
I’m a freakin’ delight
I got more bite than a California Zoo
And if you ask my momma she gonna tell you the truth
That I’m a freakin’ delight
I’m a freakin’ delight
I got more pop than a shook up mountain dew
If that’s not what you like
There must be something wrong with you
Cuz I’m a freakin’ delight
I’m a freakin’ delight

Got the high score on Pacman at the arcade
I can still get a sunburn sitting in the shade
I’m pretty much the best at acting out charades
If anybody asks me, I’m gonna say

I’m a freakin’ delight
I’m a freakin’ delight
I got more bite than a California Zoo
And if you ask my momma she gonna tell you the truth
That I’m a freakin’ delight
I’m a freakin’ delight
I got more pop than a shook up mountain dew
If that’s not what you like
There must be
Something wrong with you
Cuz I’m a freakin’ delight
I’m a freakin’ delight
I’m a freakin’ delight.

Drive me off the rails

Could you drive me off ? Never!

Jusjojan.
Driving off now

Emotions : Nonet

Our emotions, how  they  ebb and flow

Pent up inside, hidden below

Calm exteriors, all that  show.

Explosions  build  and grow

Vicious blasts  will blow

Why hide them so

They will grow

Ebb, flow

Blow

Anger

Anger, is nasty,anger is harsh and  mean

Anger is aggressive and it always causes a scene.

Anger is childish  demanding  everyone’s attention

Anger, kicking out and punching, smashing all convention.

 

Anger laughs when you break down and cry

Never does it give a shit nor will it ever explain why.

Growing in the dark, feeding on insecurities and  hate

Ever feeding  panic and dripping acid on  good grace.

Ripping away at your innards clawing growing a pace.

 

Anger is ever present spoiling everything it touches

Anger a vicious bitch  kicking away your crutches.

Anger  is a cancer chewing at your bowl

Anger never flinches however much you howl.

 

Anger laughs when you break down and cry

Never does it give a shit nor will it ever explain why.

Growing in the dark, feeding on insecurities and  hate

Ever feeding  panic and dripping acid on  good grace.

Ripping away at your innards clawing growing a pace.

 

Anger is malicious back stabbing and snide

Anger can rip you apart and toss you to one side.

Anger will suck your blood and gnaw on your bones

Anger will drain you of life and dump lost and alone.

 

Anger is ever present stripping the good away

Never giving in,chipping away at you night and day

Growing and gathering momentum  consuming you from within

Ever whispering viscous poison in your ear whilst fixing you with a grin

Recoiling at the slightest sign of kindness Anger, Anger is a bloody sin!

Floating gently in the sea is all I want, just too be free. I don’t care what lurks beneath if it kills me it would be a relief.

I don’t need all this doom and gloom the way things are I may as well be on the moon.

I cannot run I cannot fly. I feel like a trapped bird with clipped wings so I cannot fly.

Never knowing which way things will go kindness, reason or will the insults will flow.

There are only so many egg shell you can tread before it messes with your head.
