Song Lyric Sunday Make a Choice.

It is Sunday and and time for Song Lyric Sunday. Jim Adams, our gracious host has said. “today’s prompt is “Come/ Go/ Leave/ Stay.

The first song that came to mind is I’ll follow the sun by the Beatles.

I’ll Follow the Sun” is a song by the the Beatles. It is a ballad written primarily and sung by Paul McCartney and credited to Lennon–McCartney. It was released in 1964 on the Beatles for Sale album in the United Kingdom and on Beatles ’65 in the United States, but was written long before that year: a version recorded in 1960 can be found on the bootleg record You Might As Well Call Us the Quarrymen. The song was released as a mono extended play 45 in 1964 on Parlophone/EMI (and in 1995 as a B-side to “Baby It’s You”). In July and August 1965, the song peaked at number 4 on Sweden’s Kvällstoppen Chart.[4]

I am not keen on McCartney but this is one of his better songs.

Then I thought of this one! Which I live and adore and knocks all other versions in to a cocked hat, even the Original by Bob Dylan!

If You Gotta Go, Go Now” (sometimes subtitled “(Or Else You Got to Stay All Night)“) is a song written by Bob Dylan in 1964. The first released version was as a single in the US by the UK group The Liverpool Five in July 1965, but this went uncharted in the US despite receiving much airplay, particularly in the Pacific Northwest. Another English band, Manfred Mann, then issued the song as a single in September 1965; this version reached number 2 on the UK charts.

And here is my second favourite version in French from Fairport Convention.

Fairport Convention are a British folk rock band, formed in 1967 by Richard Thompson (guitarvocals), Simon Nicol (guitar, vocals), Ashley Hutchings (bass guitar), and Shaun Frater (drumspercussion), with Frater replaced by Martin Lamble after their first gig. They started out heavily influenced by American folk rock and singer-songwriter material, with a setlist dominated by Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell songs and a sound that earned them the nickname ‘the British Jefferson Airplane‘. Vocalists Judy Dyble and Iain Matthews joined them before the recording of their self-titled debut in 1968;[3] afterwards, Dyble was replaced by Sandy Denny, with Matthews leaving during the recording of their third album.

Listen to me, baby
There’s something you must see
I want to be with you, gal
If you want to be with meBut if you got to go
It’s all right
But if you got to go, go now
Or else you gotta stay all night. It ain’t that I’m questionin’ you
To take part in any quiz
It’s just that I ain’t got no watch
An’ you keep askin’ me what time it isBut if you got to go
It’s all right
But if you got to go, go now
Or else you gotta stay all nightI am just a poor boy, baby
Lookin’ to connect
But I certainly don’t want you thinkin’
That I ain’t got any respectBut if you got to go
It’s all right
But if you got to go, go now
Or else you gotta stay all night. You know I’d have nightmares
And a guilty conscience, too
If I kept you from anything
That you really wanted to doBut if you got to go
It’s all right
But if you got to go, go now
Or else you gotta stay all nightIt ain’t that I’m wantin’
Anything you never gave before
It’s just that I’ll be sleepin’ soon
It’ll be too dark for you to find the doorBut if you got to go
It’s all right
But if you got to go, go now
Or else you gotta stay all night.

Happy Sunday everyone 💜

SoCs : Acrostic Go Now

Gathering  clouds darken the skies

Over head  the rain drops conspire

Not  caring about  how fast my heart flies.

Only I am feeling  the pain,as you and  she conspire

Why do  you not love me anymore, why  tell me to go?

This post is part of SoCS

http://lindaghill.com/2015/03/06/the-friday-reminder-and-prompt-for-socs-march-715/

Here  are  the rules

1 Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.

3. There will be a prompt every week. I will post the prompt here on my blog on Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” or “Begin with the word ‘The’.”

4. Ping back! It’s important, so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours.  Your link will show up in my comments, for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top.

5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read everyone’s! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later, or go to the previous week, by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find right below the “Like” button on my post.

6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!

7. Have fun!

Don’t drown in self pity

Late, too late don’t make the same mistake. Time is ticking I have warned you so do not leave it all too late.

An empty heart is painful like a cancer eating you outside in. It feeds on your fears and saps your strength. You must fight it now, to give in is an ultimate sin.

Dead eyes don’t look at the world through dead eyes. You will miss too much of life if you hide behind dead eyes.

Wet cold and lonely do not stay wet cold and lonely. If you push all away from you , you will never find out how good it feels to have a lover true.

Let in the light , let in the light, open your eyes you need to see there are people who love you . Open your heart let lose your feelings set your soul free.Take in life and the joys it holds for all to see.

Don’t sit here, no don’t sit here  and ponder how wrong you have been. Pick up your spirits, take one more try look around and take in what you have seen.

Don’t wallow in grief for what could of been , don’t wallow in all those  broken dreams. Get up off those stairs where you are neither up not down. Get out and live your life, forge ahead look up and not always down.

Late, too late don’t make the same mistake. Time is ticking I have warned you, so do not leave it all too late.
