Song Lyric Sunday. Break.

This week HelenVahdati has given us the Song Lyric Sunday prompt of Break.

Break is a very apt prompt for me this week. On Tuesday evening I fell badly whilst out walking the Ruby. After a visit to A&E and xrays it was established that there were no breaks but soft tissue, tendon and muscle damage! I have a technicolour foot and leg. I am still hobbling and can’t walk far but I am on the mend. Pictures below are my foot and leg today.

Rules and Pingback Here

I have pick a really old one. It is Breakaway by the Springfields released in 1961.

Dusty Springfield was in the Springfields with her brother Tom before she hit the big time.

Just a little snippet of information. Dusty Springfield, real name Mary Isabel Catherine Bernadette O’Brien went to school with my eldest sister.

Song Lyric Sunday. Think.

This week HelenVahdati has given us the Song Lyric Sunday prompt is Think.

Helen is having a hard time right now. Her brain is so full she is finding it hard to function let alone think!

I have picked Tears for Fears The King of Wishful Thinking. I am the the Queen of Wishful thinking. I am feeling low because there are things in my life that I would love to change but I have no control over the circumstances. Things I have longed for and assumed I could share in have been taken from me and denied to me. I see no chance of anything ever changing. The words are in the video and they are brilliant.

Secondly Ed Sheeran singing, Thinking Out Loud, why , just because I really like it.

Happy Sunday everyone try to keep a clear head and think straight.

Song Lyric Sunday Game.

This week HelenVahdati has given us the prompt Game.

I have chosen Play the Game by

Queen.

Song Lyric Sunday. Dreams

This week Helen Vahdati has given us the word Dreams for this weeks Song Lyric Sunday.

Helen says she remembers most of her dreams and most of them are unsettling or bad. I can empathize with that as, especially at the moment I am experiencing the same.

Well I have been thinking about this since last night. Many songs come to mind but two stand out for me. The first of my two choices is Eurythmics and Sweet Dreams.

“Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)”

“Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)”

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world and the seven seas
Everybody’s looking for something

Some of them want to use you
Some of them want to get used by you
Some of them want to abuse you
Some of them want to be abused

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world and the seven seas
Everybody’s looking for something

Hold your head up, keep your head up, movin’ on
Hold your head up, movin’ on, keep your head up, movin’ on
Hold your head up, movin’ on, keep your head up, movin’ on
Hold your head up, movin’ on, keep your head up

Some of them want to use you
Some of them want to get used by you
Some of them want to abuse you
Some of them want to be abused

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world and the seven seas
Everybody’s looking for something

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world and the seven seas
Everybody’s looking for something

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world and the seven seas
Everybody’s looking for something

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world and the seven seas
Everybody’s looking for something

For my second choice I have picked Susan Boyle‘s first audition for the Britain’s Got Talent. She sings “I dreamed a dream”. This is a dream come true on so many levels, this lovely lady has Asperger’s syndrome. She is not what the panel or the audience expects they are almost sneering at her. Until she sings… then her dream comes true. The audience, panel and everyone at home are in the palm of her hand. Susan Boyle is the dream.

“I Dreamed A Dream”

I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high and life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I prayed that God would be forgiving

Then I was young and unafraid
And dreams were made and used and wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung, no wine untasted

But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they tear your hopes apart
And they turn your dreams to shame

Still I dream he’d come to me
And we would live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather

I had a dream my life would be
So different from this hell I’m living
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed

The song is from Les Miserables which is my favourite musical!

And so to dream, Helen and everyone sweet dreams.

Song Lyric Sunday. 17/6/18.

Helen Vahdati said : Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is seconds/minutes/hours. Pick one or find a song that features all three!

You can find the Rules and Pingback Here

Firstly Snow Patrol and Chocolate with a very disturbing video about time !

Lyrics From A to Z lyrics

Chocolate”

This could be the very minute
I’m aware I’m alive
All these places feel like home

With a name I’d never chosen
I can make my first steps
As a child of 25

This is the straw, final straw in the
Roof of my mouth as I lie to you
Just because I’m sorry doesn’t mean
I didn’t enjoy it at the time

You’re the only thing that I love
It scares me more every day
On my knees I think clearer

Goodness knows I saw it coming
Or at least I’ll claim I did
But in truth I’m lost for words

What have I done it’s too late for that
What have I become truth is nothing yet
A simple mistake starts the hardest time
I promise I’ll do anything you ask…this time

Secondly 7 Seconds by Youssou N’Dour, Neneh Cherry,

Finally Clocks by Cold Play

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 6/10/18 Metaphor.

This is part of Helen Vahdati’s Song Lyric Sunday.

The prompt this week is supplied by Jim Adams and it is: Use a song with a Metaphor in the title or lyrics. Do visit Jim’s post.

Well I have thought of two, one modern and one older.

Firstly Rubber Ball by Bobby Vee. From 1961. The lyrics are in the video. The metaphor is The rubber ball, referring to his heart and his love and the way his girlfriend treats him.

Secondly I chose another song with Rubber In the title. This time by Kate Bush from her 1993 album The Line The Cross and the Curve. The song is RubberBand Girl. It’s all about life and love pulling her this way and that!

Rubber band girl
See those trees
Bend in the wind
I feel they’ve got a lot more sense than me
You see I try to resist
A rubberband bouncing back to life
A rubberband bend the beat
If I could learn to give like a rubberband
I’d be back on my feet
A rubberband hold me trousers up
A rubberband ponytails
If I could learn to twang like a rubberband
I’d be a rubberband girl
A rubberband girl me
A rubberband girl me
I wanna be a rubberband girl
When I slip out
Of my catapult
I gotta land with my feet firm on the ground
And let my body catch up
A rubberband bouncing back to life
A rubberband bend the beat
If I could learn to give like a rubberband
I’d be back on my feet
A rubberband hold me trousers up
A rubberband ponytails
If I could learn to twang like a rubberband
I’d be a rubberband girl
A rubberband girl me
A rubberband girl me
I wanna be a rubberband girl
I wanna twang like a rubberband
I wanna twang like a rubberband
A rubberband girl me

#songlyricsunday

Rules and Pingback Here

I have picked this fabulous song, Loaded Smile from Adam Lambert. The lyrics are I the video I really love the words to me the honesty in this song is so close to real life to be shocking.

Then just for good measure a fabulous Take That song that needs no introduction.. Shine. The song may be called Shine but the words scream smile at me and it makes me smile.

Shine”

You, you’re such a big star to me
You’re everything I wanna be
But you’re stuck in a hole and I want you to get out
I don’t know what there is to see
But I know it’s time for you to leave
We’re all just pushing along
Trying to figure it out, out, out.

All your anticipation pulls you down
When you can have it all, you can have it all.

So, come on, so, come on, get it on
I don’t know what you’re waiting for
Your time is coming don’t be late, hey hey
So come on
See the light on your face
Let it shine
Just let it shine
Let it shine.

Stop being so hard on yourself
It’s not good for your health
I know that you can change
So clear your head and come ’round
You only have to open your eyes
You might just get a big surprise
And it may feel good
And you might want to smile, smile, smile.

Don’t you let your demons pull you down
‘Cause you can have it all, you can have it all.

So, come on, oh, come on, get it on
Don’t know what you’re waiting for
Your time is coming don’t be late, hey hey
So come on
See the light on your face
Let it shine
Just let it shine
Let it shine.

Hey let me know you
You’re all that matters to me
Hey let me show you
You’re all that matters to me.

So, come on, get it on
Don’t know what you’re waiting for
Your time is coming don’t be late, hey hey
So come on
See the light on your face
Let it shine
Just let it shine
Let it shine.

Hey! Let me know you
You’re all that matters to me
Hey! Let me show you
You’re all that matters to me

Hey! Let me love you
You’re all that matters to me
(Oh come on)
Hey! So come on yeah
(See the light on your face)
(Let it shine, just let it shine)
Shine all your light over me
(Shine!)

Song Lyric Sunday

This is my entry to Helen Vahdati’s from This Life One Word At A Time Song Lyric Sunday.

This week’s prompt is heart.

Rules and Pingback Here

Alanis Morissette has always fascinated me. At one time I truly thought she was singing my life! This particular song Underneath has special resonance with me. It may not have heart in the title but it all about heart. Basically, as I see it, and this is only how I personally see it, we tend to mess up our lives because we are too busy trying to fix the world we neglect our own lives. The lines

When we’ve the ultimate key to the cause right here, our und

erneath’

I read that as we need to fix the heart of the matter, ourselves, before we can attempt to sort what we think is wrong with the world. I think we are all a little guilty of this. I see ‘Our Underneath’ as our hearts. Also the whole video is set within s heart… It speaks volumes to me.

“Underneath”

Look at us break our bonds in this kitchen
Look at us rallying all our defenses
Look at us waging war in our bedroom
Look at us jumping ship in our dialogues

There is no difference in what we’re doing in here
That doesn’t show up as bigger symptoms out there
So why spend all our time in dressing our bandages
When we’ve the ultimate key to the cause right here, our underneath

Look at us our form our cliques in our sandbox
Look at us micro kids with both our hearts blocked
Look at us turn away from all the rough spots
Look at dictatorship on my own block

There is no difference in what we’re doing in here
That doesn’t show up as bigger symptoms out there
So why spend all our time in dressing our bandages
When we’ve the ultimate key to the cause right here, our underneath

How I’ve spun my wheels with carts before my horse
When shine on the outside springs from the root
Spotlight on these seeds of simpler reasons
This core, born into form, starts in our living room

There is no difference in what we’re doing in here
That doesn’t show up as bigger symptoms out there
So why spend all our time in dressing our bandages
When we’ve the ultimate key to the cause right here, our underneath

Lyrics from A to Z lyrics

Song Lyric Sunday. Devil/ Demon.

This is my entry for Helen Vahdati‘s Song Lyric Sunday.

This song The Devil Goes Down to Georgia has always figured in my life. It truly takes my imagination and let’s it run . Apparently it was released in 1979 when I was in my mid twenties. Somehow though I am sure I heard a version of this song when I was a child …I truly love it..and I don’t know why!!.

I have mother in law here again so can’t stop. Happy Sunday to you all.
