Song Lyric Sunday. Heaven/ Hell.

Today is Sunday and so it’s time for Jim Adams to give us the prompt for Song Lyric Sunday 9th May, 2021 – Heaven/Hell suggested by Amy, Aisasami.

I picked Seal singing This could be heaven , simply because I love it!

This Could Be Heaven” is a song Seal recorded in the year 2000 for his fourth album Togetherland.

The album was scrapped after it was rejected by his record company as they believed the album would not be commercially successful. “This Could Be Heaven” is the only song from the album that was officially released as it was included on the soundtrack for the film The Family Man. The song was released as a single in support of the soundtrack in 2001.

There are two versions, with five different edits of the final version circulating. The first version is an early recording that runs for 3:30, with a more simple arrangement and different chords. More information at Wiki.

We should be right here
Get through all this fear
One of these days ‘Cuz when it comes around
We should be right here
One of these days This could be heaven
This could be heaven Living for the part
Giving from the heart
Now and forever But if we let it wait too long
What we have is gone
Memory only This could be heaven
Maybe we can start a life today
This could be heaven
Love instead of throwing it all away
This could be heaven Whoever thought we would get this far
Trying for all these years
The thought that we would fade away
Is more then I could bear I would do anything if you would stay
If you’d stay say
We should be right here
Get through all this fear
One of these days This could be heaven Turning it all for human kind
With you by my side, say This could be heaven Sure we can decide to run away
But we run away from all this here, when This could be heaven All
This could be heaven Hey heaven, baby
This could be heaven Heaven
(Heaven baby, heaven baby)
This could be heaven
(Hey yes, ah yeah, yeah)’Cus I know you’ll call, I know you’ll call
This could be heaven
Heaven this could be Nah na na, nah nah
This could be heaven, this could be heaven
This could be heaven, this could be heaven One of these days
One of these days Source: MusixmatchSongwriters: Seal Samuel / Dave Palmer / Guy Gershoni.

Then I picked Avril Lavigne because it’s a happy song and I love it.

What the Hell” is a song by Canadian singer-songwriter Avril Lavigne from her fourth studio album, Goodbye Lullaby (2011). It was released on 10 January 2011 by RCA Records as the lead single from the album. The song was produced by Max Martin and Shellback, who co-wrote the song with Lavigne. According to Lavigne, she wrote the song as her “personal message for freedom”. More information here.

“What The Hell”

You say that I’m messin’ with your head

HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE.

Song Lyric Sunday. It’s Hell.

It’s Sunday and time for Jim Adams to challenge us to find more music to share on Song Lyric Sunday. This week our prompt words are Misery, Anguish and Torment.

First up with Misery is Narroon 5. I did think of the Beatles but I do prefer this song. 🦋

Misery” is a song by American band Maroon 5. It was released on June 22, 2010 by A&M Octone Records, as the first single from their third studio album Hands All Over (2010). Written by Adam LevineJesse Carmichael, and Sam Farrar, the song is about the narrator finding himself in a difficult situation when a relationship fades. “Why won’t you answer me? / The silence is slowly killing me / Girl you really got me bad,” he states in the lyrics.The song documents the decay of a relationship, familiar territory for the band. Frontman, Levine told MTV News: “‘Misery’ is about the desperation of wanting someone really badly in your life but having it be very difficult. Kind of what all the songs I write are about. I’m not treading on new ground, but I think a lot of people – including myself – deal with that all the time. Relationships are difficult, and it’s good therapy to write about them.”

Now we can up the agony with Anguish by the amazing Ann Wilson .

Ann Dustin Wilson (born June 19, 1950) is an American musician best known as the lead singer and songwriter of the rock band Heart.

Wilson has been a member of Heart since the early 1970s; her younger sister, Nancy Wilson, is also a member of the band. The first hard rock band fronted by women, Heart released numerous albums throughout the late 1970s and 1980s; the albums Dreamboat Annie (1975), and Little Queen (1977) generated chart singles such as “Magic Man”, “Crazy on You”, and “Barracuda” Heart has sold over 35 million records worldwide and has placed top 10 albums on the Billboard 200 in the 1970s, 1980s, 1990 and 2010s.

Wilson was ranked no. 78 in Hit Parader’s 2006 list of “Greatest Heavy Metal Vocalists of All Time”. In 2013, she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Heart.

Sorry I can’t find the lyrics.

Finally Torment is in the last verse.

Herman’s Hermits are an English beat rock and pop group formed in 1964 in Manchester, originally called Herman and His Hermits and featuring lead singer Peter Noone. Produced by Mickie Most, they charted with number ones in the UK and in America, where they ranked as one of the most successful acts in the Beatles-led British Invasion. They also appeared in four films, two of them vehicles for the band.

I loved this group and went to see their films nothing of which can I remember anything 😜☺️☺️.

Jezebel” is a 1951 popular song written by American songwriter Wayne Shanklin. It was recorded by Frankie Laine with the Norman Luboff Choir and Mitch Miller and his orchestra on April 4, 1951 and released by Columbia Records as catalog number 39367. The record reached #2 on the Billboard chart and was a million seller. The B-side, “Rose, Rose, I Love You“, was a hit too and reached #3.The title refers to the biblical woman Jezebel, a wicked, Baal-worshipping Phoenician princess who ruled Israel as queen to King Ahab. Jezebel’s story is recounted in I Kings, a book of the Old Testament.

“Jezebel”
(originally by Frankie Laine)

If ever a devil was born
Without a pair of horns
It was you, Jezebel, it was you!
If ever a pair of eyes
Promised paradise
It was you, Jezebel, it was you!
If ever a devil’s plan
Was made to torment man
Decieving me
Grieving me
Leaving me blue
Jezebel, it was you!

If ever a devil was born
Without a pair of horns
It was you, Jezebel, it was you!
If ever a pair of eyes
Promised paradise
It was you, Jezebel, it was you!
If ever a devil’s plan
Was made to torment man
Decieving me
Grieving me
Leaving me blue
Jezebel, it was you!

Even had I never known
A lover such as you
Forsaking dreams and goals
For the silent scorn
Of your charms, Jezebel!

If ever a devil’s plan
Was made to torment man
Decieving me
Drieving me
Leaving me blue
Jezebel, it was you!

Night and day
Every way
Oh Jezebel!
Jezebel

Jezebel!

Happy Sunday Everyone 🦋💜

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 34: (STABLE) in the D rhyme line.

Ronovan Writes Decima Challenge Image

It is time for Ronovanwrite’s Décima Challenge and this week it’s the word Stable in the D line. As ever we may, make some kind of link between the Haiku Challenge prompt of Grace and Slip which again I chose to do.

Banished

What evil caused the fall from grace
What caused the fight that banished those
And shut the doors of heaven closed.
Evicted, slipped to earth disgraced.
They were no longer pure or chased.
They lost their wings, they lost their souls.
Still immortal, yet no more whole.
Heaven rent in two, un stable
The bloody war, truth no fable.
The vanquished lost their holy place.

Thursday photo prompt: Timeless #writephoto

Gabriel was more relaxed than he had been in aeons. He had not lost his patience for at least three days. He was a new Archangel.

Saint Peter had mentioned this to saint Paul who inturn had mentioned it to the big man himself.

Michael and Azriel were happily going about their work of watching the errant humans. Azriel was relieved not to have had Satan whispering in his ear all the time.

“Where is Satan” saint Peter asked the big man. The big man smiled and winked. ….

Down on earth in the middle of nowhere in particular there was strange new vibes at a stone ring. The word new is not often associated with stone rings.

What was going on saint Paul asked of the big man. The big man touched his nose and smiled. They both looked at Gabriel who was relaxed, calm and happily oiling his sword.

It is all simply explained. Four days ago Gabriel had gone into total melt down. Saint Peter had found him running naked through Heaven’s gates. He had asked the demented archangel what was wrong. One word was the shrieked reply. “SATAN

Saint Peter had reported this latest event to the big man who had immediately visited Satan and frog marched him out of Hell.

They had arrived at the stone ring. The big man smiled and apologised to the old stones for any inconvenience he might be causing them. He explained that this new devil shaped stone would be joining them for a year.

The oldest stone asked what will happen to Hell while he is away. The big man assured them that Hell could wait, it’s timeless.

So peace reined in heaven, while a crotchety Satan did his best to cause trouble with the old stones, who totally ignored him.

Twittering Tales

This is my entry for Kat Myrman’s Twittering Tales.

More trouble in Heaven and Hell.

The snow had fallen for days now. The whole town was cut off. Those stuck in the library were warm and well entertained. Micheal was helping Gabriel search for his talc and Azriel. St Peter had told the Big Man it was a Code White. Satan was warming himself by the fire, happy.

The Day after Halloween

The Day after Halloween

November  the  first and  he had  been left  behind

All witches, ghouls  and  ghost  had  returned home

Gone  every imp  and  devil, he  alone the  only  remaining of his kind.

Here amid  the  humans, what  was he  to  do  alone.

 He roamed  the  streets, haunted  the parks, prowled  the  shopping centre

He hung around  the  schools  looking  for like  souls to play  with.

He messed up children’s  rooms, upset teenagers, no door he couldn’t  enter.

He was  so lonely  and  bored  nothing on this  earth  any  joy  could give.

 After  a  while  when  the  demons  roll was called, finally he  was  missed

All hell was let  loose  where was  the  boy,  the  haunted  soul

Who would comfort him, could  a human  sooth him like a vampire  kisssed

Would  angels  find him  and  steal his  evil and make him something whole.

 So out  the  went  the hoards  of hell to search  the  world and search it  well

All  this  fuss  for just one  boy, because the  devil loves  his  own

The loss on Halloween was  more than he could bare, an  empty  space in  hell

Out  the Furies  went, they  found him and  took him  home.

 

 

Gate Keepers :4

Reality begins  to peel away layer  by layer

The mists  of time swirl and so emerges the first player.

As the bell rings out it’s manic knell

The hordes of pain and sorrow stream out of hell.

 

 

Chilled to the bone and filled with fear.

 

The gate keepers watch the past rush in and future disappear.

 

Pinned to the  spot unable to move from where they stand.

 

They watch in horror as the unplanned ignores all ceasing commands.

 

All thought of hope abandons them as they watch all descend into mayhem.

 

 

The Stand 3

His fangs sank deep in to my neck as I fell I heard something crack. I couldn’t breath with the weight of that filthy hound on my back. My hair was red with blood the dog knocked me down with a thud!

He ran his paw along my spine I stabbed him hard with my knife. I took pleasure in hearing him whine. I felt his blood gush out of the wound, it fair made me heave. I swear I felt his evil soul crawl across my bleeding body as he took his leave.

I threw his filthy carcass off and and tried to make a stand. I pushed my hands in to the sludge but to rise was harder then I’d planned.

At once another hound was on my back. I was so very tired I cursed the help I lack. This one is toying with me I feel him push my face in to the maggots and demons on the ground. They  claw my eyes and scratch my face. I tried to scream blood fills my mouth I cannot make a sound.

Up on the hill I see a flash or is it a trick of the light. Is this help can I dare hope. Could that be the Lady Pen……. is that  a dragon’s smoke.

The pain is growing too much for me to bare, I feel I must give in now that my true allies are here. I feel the life draining from me I can no longer see. My spirit floats above me  the battle to  oversee.

TO BE FINISHED……………………..

THE STAND 2

They had left me, they had gone. I alone stood to face the foe from hell.

The slime and shit that crawled up my spine shrank back as they got the smell.

Unmistakable the stench of below where fungus festers and brimstone flows.

The Dogs were coming at me now , I raised my sword and drew my knife

I could smell their breath and feel their heat upon my skin, I loved life

but I feared that mine had run it length. I dug deep within to find my strength.

The hounds drew near acid from their mouths burned my toes, the stench of their breath got right up my nose. Their teeth began to tear at  my legs loosing the demons off my back the shit the dregs . I was glad their grip was gone they had been draining my strength for far too long.

I swung my sword and slashed with my knife,

I made them bleed and I gave them strife.

They bit my shoulder and ripped my arm, how I bled

I screamed and kicked and hacked at last one of the dogs was dead.

The others angry at their brothers demise roared and rolled their demon eyes.

I was certain all was lost all bridges burnt all mountains crossed!

I raised  my head up to the sky as a dog leaped at my throat and screamed OH! God,Don’t Let Me Die!

TO BE CONTINUED………..

The Stand

Alone I stood.  Lost, deserted railing at the moon.

Angry  was I, and abandoned too soon.

Fled, they had all left me to my fate

My preparations barely finished  all my hopes blown away like loss of faith.

Unready, unprepared I felt my pride and strength begin to drain.

It was not so much what I had to face  but, their betrayal that caused the pain.

My body twitching my bladder suddenly emptied.Was I this, wretched weak

Could I  not hold my pride whatever the future was, no matter how bleak.

As the last lights of their lanterns disappeared from sight

I was engulfed  by dark and the unholy spirits of the night!

They curled around  my feet and drank the water I had passed.

The ran their tongues and claws up my spine. I did not know if I could last.

Suddenly with no warning there they were, blood for drool and fire in their fur.

They stretched and then they caught my scent,  piss and fear heavy on the air.

There was nothing for it, what else could I do.

Those bastard cowards left me here and I would damn well see it through.

I took a breath and faced them ignoring the demons on my back.

I raised my sword and screaming I threw myself into the attack!
