Song Lyric Sunday. Angel

This week’s song lyrics based on the word Angel.

There are so many songs about angels , fallen, special and even Cupid. But my favourite is Angel by Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart, it was the last song they did together as the Eurythmics before a break of a decade when they went their separate ways. It is a very special song for me.

Lyrics for Angel from A to Z Lyrics
Underneath this canopy of snow
Where fifty-seven winters
Took their toll
Where did you go?
And I believed in you
I believed in you
Like Elvis Presley
Singing psalms on a Sunday
Where did you go?
Well she’s gone to meet
Her maker
Back to where she came from
Come to save her soul…
Come to save her soul…
Come to take her home
‘Cause it’s late and past
Your bedtime
Well past bedtime
Angel
My angel
Fly over me
Angel…
She took her life
Within her hands
She took her life
Within her own two hands
And no one can tell her
What to do now
And I believed in you
I believed in you
Like Elvis Presley
Singin’ live from Las Vegas
Where did you go?
Well she’s gone to meet
Her maker
Back to where she came from
Come to save her soul…

********************

We all know people who died too young weather by illness of the body, soul or mind and these lyrics portray this perfectly.

Another song about Angels by Annie Lennox is Precious she wrote this about loosing her first born daughter. Anyone who has lost a child, or not will understand the lyrics to this song too.

Precious”

Precious little angel
Take a look at what you’ve done
Well I thought my time was over
But it’s only just begun
Precious little angel
You’re my own sweet turtle dove
Won’t you stay with us for ever
In a bundle full of love

I was lost until you came

Precious little angel
Won’t you spread your light on me
I was locked up in the darkness
Now you’ve come to set me free
I was covered up with sadness
I was drowned in my own tears
I’ve been cynical and twisted
I’ve been bitter all these years

I was lost until you came
I was lost until you came

And wouldn’t I run a thousand miles
To be with you
And wouldn’t I run a thousand miles
To be with you

Precious little angel
Tell me how can it be true
That such a gift from heaven
Has been sent for me and you
Precious little angel
Don’t you worry don’t you cry
When this bad old world has crumbled
I’ll be standing at your side

I was lost until you came

This is my entry to #songlyricsunday.

Song Lyric Sunday. Light.

This week Helen Vahdati has given us the word Light for Song Lyric Sunday prompt.

Rules and Pingback Here

Well my first thought was Blinded By The Light by Manfred Mann. The song was written by Bruce Springsteen.

“Blinded By The Light”

[Chorus:]
Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night
Blinded by the light

Madman drummer bummers
Indians in the summer
With a teenage diplomat
In the dumps with the mumps
As the adolescent pumps
His way into his hat
With a boulder on my shoulder
Feeling kinda older
I tripped a merry-go-round
With this very unpleasing
Sneezing and wheezing
The calliope crashed to the ground
The calliope crashed to the ground

[Chorus:]
But she was blinded by the light.
Revved up like a deuce,
Another runner in the night.
Blinded by the light.
Revved up like a deuce,
Another runner in the night.
Blinded by the light.
Revved up like a deuce,
Another runner in the night.

Some silicone sister
With her manager mister
Told me I got what it takes
She said, I’ll turn you on sonny to something strong
Play the song with the funky break
And go-kart Mozart
Was checking out the weather chart
To see if it was safe outside
And little Early Pearly
Came by in his curly-wurly
And asked me if I needed a ride
Asked me if I needed a ride

[Chorus:]
‘Cause she was blinded by the light.
Revved up like a deuce,
Another runner in the night.
Blinded by the light.

She got down but she never got tight
She’s gonna make it to the night
She’s gonna make it through the night

But mama, that’s where the fun is
But mama, that’s where the fun is

[Solo]

Mama always told me not to look into the eyes of the sun
But mama, that’s where the fun is

Some brimstone baritone
Anticyclone rolling stone
Preacher from the east
Says, “Dethrone the dictaphone.
Hit it in its funny bone.
That’s where they expect it least.”
And some new mown chaperone
Was standing in the corner
Watching the young girls dance
And some fresh-sown moonstone
Was messing with his frozen zone
Reminding him of romance

The calliope crashed to the ground

But she was blinded by the light.
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night.
Blinded by the light.
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night.

(Madman drummers bummers and Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomat
In the dumps with the mumps as the adolescent pumps his way into his hat)

Blinded by the light.
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night.
Blinded by the light.
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night.

(With a boulder on my shoulder feelin’ kinda older I tripped the merry-go-round
With this very unpleasing sneezing and wheezing the calliope crashed to the ground)

Blinded by the light.
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night.
Blinded by the light.
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night.

(And now Scott with a slingshot finally found a tender spot and throws his lover in the sand
And some bloodshot forget-me-not whispers daddy’s within earshot save the buckshot turn up the band.)

Blinded by the light.
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night.
Blinded by the light.
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night.

(Some silicone sister with her manager mister told me I got what it takes
She said I’ll turn you on sonny to something strong)

She got down but she never got tired,
She’s gonna make it through the night.

AtoZ Lyrics.

But I had to go for Tim Finn singing Winter Light . A beautiful song from the Chronicles of Narnia.

Song Lyric Sunday Seeing.

This week withe help of Sarah at On The Way to the Barre. Helen Vahdati have given us the prompt of Seeing for our Song Lyric Sunday Challenge.

Rules and Pingback Here

This week I have picked the end theme from the film Narnia, The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe, by C. S. Lewis. The song is about seeing the beauty in everything and learning good from bad. Such a beautiful song about growing up. I truly recommend the book and the film, the book being best.

The author C.S. Lewis had a very interesting life too read here.
The songwriter is…… Imogen Heap. …. Stop throwing stuff at me it’s a great song. Lyrics in the video

We’ll just to prove that I like more singers than just Imogen Heap here is an old song from Cilla Black, it’s about seeing love in your partner’s eyes

Love of the loved.

Written by Paul McCartney and John Lennon.

Sung by Cilla Black

Each time
I look into your eyes
I see that there
There heaven lies
And as I look
I see the love of the loved

Someday they’ll see
That from the start
My place has been
Deep in your heart
And in your heart
I see the love of the loved

Though I’ve said it all before
I will say it more and more
Cause I’m really sure
You love me

And I know that from today
I will see it in the way
You look at me
And say you love me

So let it rain
What do I care?
Deep in your heart
I’ll still be there
And when I’m there
I see the love of the loved

Though I’ve said it all before
I will say it more and more
Cause I’m really sure
You love me

And I know that from today
I will see it in the way
You look at me
And say you love me

So let it rain
What do I care?
Deep in your heart
I’ll still be there
And when I’m there
I see the love of the loved

Lyrics from Here

Hope you enjoy have a great Sunday.

Song Lyric Sunday 18/3/18. Shadow.

This week Helen Vahdati has set us the Song Lyric Sunday theme of Shadow.

Rules and Pingback Here

This first song by Imogen Heap, have I mentioned her before, she made this song circa 2005. Say goodnight and go. It’s a very cute song and video but it is about a stalker…so on investigation it’s a tad scary!

Lyrics here from A to Z lyrics.

Goodnight And Go”

Say goodnight and go.
Woah woah. Woah woah

Skipping beats, blushing cheeks I am struggling
Daydreaming, bed scenes in the corner café
And then i’m left in bits recovering tectonic tremblings
You get me every time

Why d’ya have to be so cute?
It’s impossible to ignore you
Must you make me laugh so much
It’s bad enough we get along so well
Say goodnight and go

Follow you home, you’ve got your headphones on and you’re dancing
Got lucky, beautiful shot you taking everything off watch the curtains wide open
Then you fall in the same routine flicking through the TV relaxed and reclining
And you think you’re alone…

Why d’ya have to be so cute?
It’s impossible to ignore you
Must you make me laugh so much
It’s bad enough we get along so well
Say goodnight and go

One of these days, you’ll miss your train and come stay with me
We’ll have drinks and talk about things, any excuse to stay awake with you
You’ll sleep here, i’ll sleep there, but then the heating may be down again
at my convenience
we’d be good, we’d be great together.

[Sigh]
Go!

Say goodnight and go,
why’s it always always
goodnight and go
Darling not again
Goodnight and go

***********************

Secondly I have picked a fabulous song by Oasis. I just love the lyrics these guys write. So deep and meaningful almost hyms. This one is Cast no shadow.

The lyrics are in the video. There you have it two shadow songs two very different takes. Have a good week everyone.

Song Lyric Sunday. Unity.

Today for our Song Lyric Sunday Prompt, Helen Vahdatihas given us the word Unity to play with.

Now the prompt unity was very kindly suggested to Helen by Felicia Denise.

Well I had to go with Queen One Vision . I have all Queen’s Music and boy does this one fit the bill. It was released as a single in November 1985 and then included on their 1986 album A Kind of Magic. It was originally conceived by Roger Taylor

The words are in the video.

It’s wonderful I love it!

And because it’s Mother’s Day here is my Mum again.

Song Lyric Sunday: Numbers.

Today is Sunday so it’s time for Song Lyric Sunday. Today’s prompt from Helen Vahdati is a song about Numbers.

Rules and Pingback Here

I was 15 going on 16, hang on that was another song and not the one I have chosen but as soon as I wrote my age it came to mind. It is from the musical The Sound of Music! Which dates from before I reached that age. Oh! Let’s hear that one too, it sounds cheesy but listen and read and you’ll be surprised by the lyrics .

I digress !!!

I shall start again. I was on the cusp of 16, I had left school the year before and was an apprentice window dresser, I had been with my future husband three years when this song was released in 1969, it was written in 1968.

In the year 2525 by Zager and Evans. This song blew my mind it was amazing. It said everything I felt about mankind and its future. My young mind truly believed we were on the eve of destruction another song for another time. ( By Barry McGuire 1965) oh here is the video it’s a great song!

Boy I was idealistic in those days.. a real Eco warrior.

It brings back wonderful memories of my younger life. I thought I had troubles then.. I didn’t…silly me.🙃.

Finally the song I picked for the prompt before I went of pieste!

The lyrics are in the video.

So there you have three songs for the one prompt one not with numbers !

Song Lyric Sunday 4/2/18 Truth.

This week Helen Vahdati in conjunction with Simply Marquessa has set us a searching prompt for our Song Lyric Sunday. So this week’s prompt is Truth.. that’s a thorny one.

Well I have decided to go along the lines of couples in relationships that are either dead or dying and need truth and honesty!

Rules and Pingback Here

First up Kate Bush and Peter Gabriel. With a song about a couple who have stopped talking and settled into a regime of existing and avoiding the truth. So very sad, so very common, so very true. It’s called another day

Another Day

The kettle’s on, the sun has gone

She offers me tibetan tea on a flower tray
She’s at the door, she wants to score
She dearly needs to to say
I loved you a long time ago
Where the winds own forget me nots blow
But I just couldn’t let myself go
Not knowing what on earth there was to know
But I wish that I had
‘Cos I’m feeling so sad
That I never had one of your children
And across the room inside a tomb
A change is waxed and wanes
The night is young why are we so hung up
In each others chains
I must make her, I must take her
While the dove domains
And feel the juice run as she flies
Run my winds under her sighs
As the flames of eternity rise
To lick us with the first-born lash of dawn
Oh really my dear
I can’t see what we fear
Sat here with ourselves in between us
And at the door we can’t say more
Than just another day
And without a sound I turn around
And I walk away

Lyric from Here

Next is China by Tori Amos . Very similar to the Kate Bush and Peter Gabriel song. Another couple who need to talk to each other and tell the truth. This is another very sad song. The Lyrics are in the video. China by Tori Amos

Right we have had all this sadness and unspoken truth in the two songs above. Let’s move on to something a little more hopeful a song about being honest, speaking the truth and moving on. Guess who it is by, yes indeed my favourite singer songwriter Imogen Heap. This song is about the end of a long term relationship that was truly dead the honesty and truth in the words are refreshing.

“Run-Time”

Sparks might fly, in no time.
It’s a delayed reaction of the third kind. (ooh)
I’m so ready for this.
Shrink-wrapped tones, I can face the music.
Stop matters bonding us way beyond
Our best by-days.

You know we’ve had it good, we’ve had it bad, so no hard feelings.
We’ve done all we could and all again. I’m done pretending.
Let’s quit while we’re still friends.

Making up stories that grew to be too tall,
My fortress to forget couldn’t take anymore.
You nearly watched me ruin everything, everything!
There’s a number one rule of don’t-do’s.
Well we knew it all too well.
You were supposed to be looking out for me!
Have you any idea how difficult it’s been?

You know we’ve had it good, we’ve had it bad, so no hard feelings.
We’ve done all we could, and all again. Let’s save ourselves a sorry ending.
You know we’ve had it good, we’ve had it bad, but this is as far as we can stretch.
Let’s stop pretending, stop pretending.
And quit while we’re still friends
[x2]

Well I was so young, misguided maybe.
But still this hands over my every pen to paper.
And this all started with a song.
Let this be our last one.
Drop, drop. Bridge, bridge!

We’ve had it good, we’ve had it bad, but this is as far as we can stretch.
Stop pretending!
And quit while we’re still friends.

I wish you well.
I wish you well… (I wish you well, wish you well, wish you well)

Wish you well, I wish you well, I won’t tell if you won’t tell.
I won’t hold it against you if you bow out gracefully. (gracefully)
Can we just not drag this out, please?
I wish you well, I wish you well, I won’t tell if you won’t tell.
I won’t hold it against you if you bow out gracefully, (do it gracefully!)
Can we just not drag this out

Lyric found Here

Just to say Imogen did finish her relationship, eventually met her now husband, best friend and father to their child 💞 which goes to prove Truth is key.

Song Lyric Sunday, Natural Disasters.

Song Lyric Sunday from HelenVahdati in conjunction with Simply Marquessa this week’s prompt is – “natural disasters”.  

Rules and Pingback Here

I just love Peter Gabriel one of my favourite songs by him is Here Comes the Flood…. Enough Said.

“Here Comes The Flood”

Lyrics from AToZ

When the night shows
the signals grow on radios
All the strange things
they come and go, as early warnings
Stranded starfish have no place to hide
still waiting for the swollen Easter tide
There’s no point in direction we cannot
even choose a side.

I took the old track
the hollow shoulder, across the waters
On the tall cliffs
they were getting older, sons and daughters
The jaded underworld was riding high
Waves of steel hurled metal at the sky
and as the nail sunk in the cloud, the rain
was warm and soaked the crowd.

Lord, here comes the flood
We’ll say goodbye to flesh and blood
If again the seas are silent
in any still alive
It’ll be those who gave their island to survive
Drink up, dreamers, you’re running dry.

When the flood calls
You have no home, you have no walls
In the thunder crash
You’re a thousand minds, within a flash
Don’t be afraid to cry at what you see
The actors gone, there’s only you and me
And if we break before the dawn, they’ll
use up what we used to be.

Lord, here comes the flood
We’ll say goodbye to flesh and blood
If again the seas are silent
in any still alive
It’ll be those who gave their island to survive
Drink up, dreamers, you’re running dry
