IT’S A LYRICAL LIFE

Just for fun, I decided to write this months’ blog – the whole blog (aside of this introduction of course), using lyrics from songs, some of my own, some of others. They are all referenced during the article. The topic of discussion, just in case it gets confusing, Is celebrating the potential for meaningful communication through music. In fact, imagine, no arguments, no resentment per se’, no yelling without verse, safe disclosure, and hear-felt sharing? It doesn’t sound like the usual communications we share in relations does it? Ok so here’s the story outline, It’s one you know well:

  • LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL
  • LIFE IS HARD WORK
  • LIFE SUCKS
  • BOY MEETS GIRL
  • LIFE SEEMS BETTER SHARED
  • RELATIONSHIPS ARE HARD WORK
  • FACING CHALLENGES
  • RELATIONSHIPS ARE WORTH IT
  • UPON REFLECTION
  • LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL

Sit back enjoy, if nothing else, it’ll raise an eyebrow, draw a smile, provoke some thought.

LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL

And we live in a beautiful world (yeah we do yeah we do), We live in a beautiful world

Beautiful World – Coldplay

“It’s a beautiful day
Sky falls, you feel like
It’s a beautiful day
Don’t let it get away”

Beautiful Day – U2

LIFE IS HARD

I fought all through the night. Oh, oh, but I made it alive. The sun’s starting to rise. Oh, oh, these are beautiful times

This fight of my life is so hard, so hard, so hard. But I’m gonna survive

Oh, oh, these are beautiful times

Beautiful Times – Owl City

Shiver with me in the cold of morn, comfort me and bathe me in your warmth. Hold me like you’ll never let me go, remind me that I am not alone

One Day Of Your Life – Johnny Mackay

LIFE SUCKS

I know it hurts, I know it’s bin so hard. I know it gets you down and the time it goes slowly past

I feel the sun is cold, nobody here can tell. I feel that your heart grows weak and the wishing has gone from the well

All of our pain will be shared and done. And you can shelter here little one

And we will cry,one tear at a time. One tear at a time

One Tear At A Time – Johnny Mackay

In the morning time, it doesn’t matter now. I’ll sleep in forever and ever, I guess you’ll find me somehow.

I can feel the dizziness, the confusion it’s comin’ on, behind my eyes I can feel the flies and I know it’s nearly done.

I just can’t do this I’m so lonely, all by myself it ain’t so homely.

I’ll fall away no one will miss me, just one last pill and that will fix me!

One Last Pill – Johnny Mackay

BOY MEETS GIRL

When I met you, selling pies, In a little shopping hide,

you came up closer I knew it then, you’d be my partner in dance and song

The Lover’s Waltz – Johnny Mackay

I would dive the deepest sea to find the brightest pearl, make a necklace for you that would brighten up your world.

And I would tame a whale’s ride, just for you

I would walk the fire rocks but I would feel no pain, I’d only feel your lovin’ and could only hear your name.

And I would tame the clouds of time, just for you

Just For You – Johnny Mackay

LIFE SEEMS BETTER

My shoelaces are undone, they will trip me up I will fall down.

And the spinach in my teeth looks bad, if life is so good why am I so sad?

Cause sleeping in all day is meant for losers.

But she loves me anyway, the way I am on any given day and that’s all that matters to me perse’.

She loves me, loves me anyway

Anyway – Johnny Mackay

Oh, it’s such a perfect day, I’m glad I spend it with you. Oh, such a perfect day

You just keep me hanging on, You just keep me hanging on

Perfect Day – Lou Reed

My scotch is there I see, you light a cigarette for me, I pull my chair and I settle in

Like a little boy, I feel so full of joy, you let me be the one I am

Judge Me Not – Johnny Mackay

RELATIONSHIPS ARE HARD WORK

Your eyes sparkle, under these city stars, I’m sorry I didn’t tell you before we fell apart, before we fell apart

Last September Moon – Johnny Mackay

When I look at you, In the morning time. Hold you in my arms, know that you are mine

There aint no easy way, to say what I gotta say

I’m leaving, babe I’m leaving. I’m leaving you, babe I’m leaving

When I watch you, while you’re sleepin’, I’m quite as a mouse, and already grieving

But there ain’t no easy way, to say what I gotta say

I’m leaving, babe I’m leaving. I’m leaving you, babe I’m leaving

I’m Leaving – Johnny Mackay

I remember waiting in the dark, but you never came. I remember begging for your love but you showed no shame.

I remember asking you to hold me, but you turned away, and I remember pledging you my love, but you never stayed

and now  …

I’m Not Waiting – Johnny Mackay

MEETING THE CHALLENGE

I never knew what love was, until love was turned around. I never knew that all you wanted, was for me to be found.

Now I am your servant, and you are mine. When I’m lost in the dark of night, you’ll be my safety line and I will,

weather you, beautiful storm, run me over break me down, rip me up so torn but I will,

weather you, beautiful storm, I’ll carry all the doubt you leave me on my back and more, weather you …

LOVE IS UNDERSTOOD

It’s in the way you look, it’s in the way you love

And I can see that this is real

It’s in the way you talk, it’s in the way you touch

And I can see

This is real, real, real, real love. This is real, real, real, real love

You give me that feeling, you give me that feeling. You give me that, you give me real love

You give me that feeling, you give me that feeling. You give me that, you give me real love

Real Love – Clean Bandit & Jess Glynne

You are the answer to my lonely prayer. You are an angel from above

I was so lonely till you came to me. With the wonder of your love

I don’t know how I ever lived before. You are my life, my destiny

Oh my darling, I love you so. You mean everything to me

You Mean Everything To Me – Neil Sedaka

When you’re needing to keep on sleeping, I will tiptoe without making a sound.

But I might kiss you where your face meets the pillow, you just need to be around, I just love you, being around

SONG4KATE – Johnny Mackay

UPON REFLECTION

You never know what you’ve done for me, what your faith in me has done for my soul

You’ll never know the gift you’ve given me, I’ll carry it with me yeah yeah

Through the days ahead I’ll think of days before

And you make me hope for something better and made me reach for something more

You taught me to run you taught me to fly, helped me to free the me inside

Helped me hear the music of my heart, helped me hear the music of my heart

You Taught Me To – Justin Timberlake

You are the love of my life, I knew it right from the start. The moment I looked at you, you found a place in my heart

You are the love of my life. You give me reason to live. You taught me how to be strong. With you is where I belong

Love Of My Life – George Benson

LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL

You just call out my name, and you know wherever I am, I’ll come running to see you again

Winter, spring, summer or fall, all you got to do is call, and I’ll be there yes I will

You’ve got a friend

Carole King

I see trees of green, red roses too. I see them bloom for me and you, and I think to myself what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue and clouds of white, the bright blessed day, the dark sacred night,

and I think to myself what a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky, are also on the faces of people going by.

I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do, but they’re really saying I love you.

I hear baby’s crying and I watched them grow, they’ll learn much more than I’ll ever know

And I think to myself what a wonderful world. Yes, I think to myself what a wonderful world

Until next time – Pleasant musings

Johnny
