Song Lyric Sunday. Bjork

This week the theme for Helen Vahdati‘s Song lyrics Sunday is : Outer space including planet,stars moons and probably suns aswell.

Rules and Pingback Here

So the song I am picking this week is Desired Consolation by Bjork. I love Bjork and this song is perfect for the prompt. I do hope you enjoy.

Lyrics from AToZ Lyrics
“Desired Constellation”

It’s tricky when
You feel someone
Has done something 
On your behalf 

It’s slippery when 
Your sense of justice 
Murmurs underneath 
And is asking you:

How am I going to make it right? 

With a palm full of stars 
I throw them like dice
Repeatedly
I shake them like dice
And throw them on the table 
Repeatedly
Repeatedly
Until the desired constellation appears 
And I ask myself:

How am I going to make it right?
How am I going to make it right?
How am I going to make it right?
And you hear
How am I going to make it right?

Song Lyric Sunday: Black Eyes Blue Tears.

This week Helen Vahdati has decided that the theme for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday is to be colours.

Rules and Pingback Here

Well I have picked a song that has a strong message that is close to my heart. It also has two colours in it. Black and Blue.


The song is by Shania Twain and it is called Black eyes Blue Tears.  At the beginning of the video Shania introduces the song as one about battered, wives, girlfriends, partners and the like. This is a subject close to my heart. Before we go any further I would like to remind you that there are more ways to batter a partner than with your fists but this song tells it how it is whether the battering is done with the fists or words ! 

Lyrics by A to Z lyrics
Black Eyes, Blue Tears”

Black eyes, I don’t need ’em
Blue tears, gimme freedom 
Positively never goin’ back
I won’t live where things are so out of whack
No more rollin’ with the punches
No more usin’ or abusin’ 

I’d rather die standing
Than live on my knees
Begging please-no more 

Black eyes-I don’t need ’em
Blue tears-gimme freedom
Black eyes-all behind me
Blue tears’ll never find me now 

Definitley found my self esteem
Finally-I’m forever free to dream
No more cryin’ in the corner
No excuses-no more bruises 

I’d rather die standing
Than live on my knees
Begging please-no more 

Black eyes-I don’t need ’em
Blue tears-gimme freedom
Black eyes-all behind me
Blue tears’ll never find me now 

I’d rather die standing
Than live on my knees, begging please… 

Black eyes-I don’t need ’em
Blue tears-gimme freedom
Black eyes-all behind me
Blue tears’ll never find me now 

It’s all behind me, they’ll never find me now 

Find your self-esteem and be forever free to dream

Song lyric Sunday: Duet.

This week Helen Vahdati has had a interesting recommendation for this week’s prompt from  Thoughts, Songs, Words with Meaning.  So what is the theme suggested : to post a duet.

Now, yes there are many fabulous duets to pick from, well you know me I always like to go slightly off pieste. I have chosen a duet with a difference.

It is Bohemian Rhapsody, with Elton John, Queen, Freddie Mercury on Screen, and finally Axel Rose who absolutely kills the last fast part of the song!  His vocals are brilliant but woow the way he bursts on to the stage like a whirling dervish is just amazing. Then Elton John joins him and as they sing the final lines, “Anyway the wind blows” the two of them, Elton and Axel joined hands and walk to the front of the stage. It always brings a lump to my throat.

Bohemian Rhapsody

By Queen

Is this the real life?

Is this just fantasy?

Caught in a landslide,

No escape from reality.

Open your eyes,

Look up to the skies and see,

I’m just a poor boy, I need no sympathy,

Because I’m easy come, easy go,

Little high, little low,

Any way the wind blows doesn’t really matter to me, to me.

Mama, just killed a man,

Put a gun against his head,

Pulled my trigger, now he’s dead.

Mama, life had just begun,

But now I’ve gone and thrown it all away.

Mama, ooh,

Didn’t mean to make you cry,

If I’m not back again this time tomorrow,

Carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters.

Too late, my time has come,

Sends shivers down my spine,

Body’s aching all the time.

Goodbye, everybody, I’ve got to go,

Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth.

Mama, ooh (any way the wind blows),

I don’t wanna die,

I sometimes wish I’d never been born at all.

I see a little silhouetto of a man,

Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango?

Thunderbolt and lightning,

Very, very frightening me.

(Galileo) Galileo.

(Galileo) Galileo,

Galileo Figaro

Magnifico-o-o-o-o.

I’m just a poor boy, nobody loves me.

He’s just a poor boy from a poor family,

Spare him his life from this monstrosity.

Easy come, easy go, will you let me go?

Bismillah! No, we will not let you go. (Let him go!)

Bismillah! We will not let you go. (Let him go!)

Bismillah! We will not let you go. (Let me go!)

Will not let you go. (Let me go!)

Never let you go (Never, never, never, never let me go)

Oh oh oh oh

No, no, no, no, no, no, no

Oh, mama mia, mama mia (Mama mia, let me go.

Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me.

So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye?

So you think you can love me and leave me to die?

Oh, baby, can’t do this to me, baby,

Just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta here.

(Ooooh, ooh yeah, ooh yeah)

Nothing really matters,

Anyone can see,

Nothing really matters,

Nothing really matters to me.

Any way the wind blows.

Song Lyric Sunday:Magic

This week’s prompt from Helen Vahdati is Magic. 

Rules and Pingback Here

Let the magic begin.

As a child I loved reading and being read fairy tales. Now fairy tales are not really for children, they are often very scary BUT they are full of magic. I love magic.

Now C S Lewis was a wonderful storyteller and believe it or not he was a friend and drinking partner to J R R Tolkien. They both wrote wonderful stories, stories of my childhood.

This song l have chosen this week is Wunderkind by Alanis Morissette from the Chronicles of Narnia. The song , the book and the film are so full of magic that they fill me with magic. 

Lyrics by AZ lyrics

“Wunderkind”

Oh perilous place walk backwards toward you 
Blink disbelieving eyes chilled to the bone 
Most visibly brave no aprehended gloom 
First to take this foot to virgin snow 

I am a magnet for all kinds of deeper wonderment 
I am a wunderkind oh oh oh oooooh 
And I lift the envelope pushed far enough to believe this 
I am a princess on the way to my throne 

Destined to serve, destined to roam 

Oh ominous place spellbound and unchild-proofed 
My least favorite chill to bare alone 
Compatriots in place they’d cringe if I told you 
Our best back-pocket secret our bond full-blown 

I am a magnet for all kinds of deeper wonderment 
I am a wunderkind oh oh oh oooooh 
I am a pioneer naive enough to believe this 
I am a princess on the way to my throne 

Destined to seek, destined to know 

Most beautiful place reborn and blown off roof 
My view about-face whether great will be done 

I am a magnet for all kinds of deeper wonderment 
I am a wunderkind oh oh oh oooooh 
I am a ground-breaker naive enough to believe this 
I am a princess on the way to my throne 

I am a magnet for all kinds of deeper wonderment 
I am a wunderkind oh oh oh oooooh 
I am a Joan of Arc and smart enough to believe this 
I am a princess on the way to my throne 

Destined to reign, destined to roam 
Destined to reign, destined to roam 
Destined to reign, destined to roam 
Destined to reign, destined to roam

Song Lyric Sunday Freedom

This week Helen Vahdati has asked us to post songs about freedom. 

Rules and Pingback Here

I wanted to come at this prompt from a slightly different angle. There are many brilliant freedom songs , protest songs and celebratory  songs.

I have chosen Queen and “I want to break free” I am not sure exactly what they were saying in this song but I get a very strong message from the lyrics. The lyrics tell me we need to break away from the ties of convention, from gender rolls, from controlling people and how we are expected to act. 

Freedom from war and oppression is very important but also freedom from personal oppression and being tied down by society’s expectations is very important and is often swept under the carpet.

From the young girl trapped in an arranged marriage, to the partner in a mentally abusive marriage, to anyone trapped in the wrong sex, to lesbian and gay rights , to anyone being bullied young or old to anyone who needs to spread their wings and fly.

Okay I have ranted on enough, who knew I felt so strongly  on the subject.

Lyrics from here

“I Want To Break Free”

I want to break free
I want to break free
I want to break free from your lies
You’re so self satisfied I don’t need you
I’ve got to break free
God knows, God knows I want to break free.

I’ve fallen in love
I’ve fallen in love for the first time

And this time I know it’s for real
I’ve fallen in love, yeah
God knows, God knows I’ve fallen in love.

It’s strange but it’s true
I can’t get over the way you love me like you do
But I have to be sure
When I walk out that door
Oh how I want to be free, baby
Oh how I want to be free,
Oh how I want to break free.

But life still goes on
I can’t get used to, living without, living without,
Living without you by my side
I don’t want to live alone, hey
God knows, got to make it on my own
So baby can’t you see
I’ve got to break free.

I’ve got to break free
I want to break free, yeah
I want, I want, I want, I want to break free

Song Lyric Sunday: Explosions

This week Helen Vahdati said : Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is to post a song with a word that describes a sound in the title or lyrics. 

Rules and Pingback here

Well here I am a day late, apologies I just couldn’t manage to post this Sunday.

Sounds in the lyric or title well there are many from Hazel O’Conner and Breaking Glass to  Thats the sound of the men working on the chain gang . By Sam Cooke

Both amazing songs. Today I am going to choose Explosions By Ellie Goulding

It perfectly reflects way I feel right now. 

Lyrics Explosions Ellie Goulding.

You trembled like you’d seen a ghost
And I gave in
I lack the things you need the most
You said where have you been
You wasted all that sweetness to run and hide
I wonder why
I remind you of the days you poured your heart into
But you never tried
I’ve fallen from grace
Took a blow to my face
I’ve loved and I’ve lost
I’ve loved and I’ve lost

Explosions on the day you wake up
Needing somebody and you’ve learned
It’s okay to be afraid
But it will never be the same
It will never be the same

You left my soul bleeding in the dark
So you could be king
The rules you set are still untold to me and I
Lost my faith in everything
The nights you could cope, your intentions were gold
But the mountains will shake
I need to know I can still make

Explosions on

Lyric from Google.


Have a great week folks avoid the black dog 💜
