Lyrics of the Week – Week 42

Dedicated to nothing.

“The Scientist” by Coldplay

Come up to meet you, tell you I’m sorry
You don’t know how lovely you are
I had to find you, tell you I need you
Tell you I set you apart

Tell me your secrets and ask me your questions
Oh, let’s go back to the start
Running in circles, coming up tails
Heads on a science apart

Nobody said it was easy
It’s such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard
Oh, take me back to the start

I was just guessing at numbers and figures
Pulling the puzzles apart
Questions of science, science and progress
Do not speak as loud as my heart

But tell me you love me, come back and haunt me
Oh and I rush to the start
Running in circles, chasing our tails
Coming back as we are

Nobody said it was easy
Oh, it’s such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be so hard
I’m going back to the start

Oh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ah ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh
Oh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh
Oh ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh

I feel like Sylvia Plath sometimes. Cliche, but true.

Lyrics of the Week – Week 41

Dedicated to nature.

“Nature” by India Arie


I know
Oh, Oh Yeah

[Verse]
Hey baby
Why you rushing
Let’s sit back and watch the flowers grow
Why you want
To swim against the tide
Let’s lay and watch the river flow

Lyrics of the Week – Week 40

Dedicated to Chase Hafer. This is his favorite band.

“How’s It Going To Be” by Third Eye Blind

I’m only pretty sure that I can’t take anymore
Before you take a swing, I wonder what are we fighting for?
When I say out loud, “I want to get out of this,”
I wonder, is there anything I’m going to miss?

I wonder how it’s going to be
when you don’t know me.
How’s it going to be
when you’re sure I’m not there? Continue reading

Lyrics of the Week – Week 39

Dedicated to practice.

“We Can Change the World” by The Jacksons

The Victory Tour - the last Jackson album tour

All for one and one for all is what we all should be.
But instead we go and fight each other.
Now, that wasn’t meant to be.
You know, the sun is there to light the day.
The night is lit by the moon.
If we don’t come together, my brother, it all can end very soon.

It’s your world now.
The furture is plain to see.
(Sing it, yeah. Sing it, yeah, yeah, yeah.)
Give love right now.
We need the harmony. Continue reading

Lyrics of the Week – Week 38

Dedicated to daddy.

“Dance With Me” by Orleans

Dance with me, I want to be your partner.
Can’t you see the music is┬ájust starting?
Night is calling, and I am falling.
Dance with me.

Fantasy could never be so giving.
I feel free, I hope that you are willing.
Pick your feet up, and kick your feet up.
Dance with me.

Lyrics of the Week – Week 37

Dedicated to Ian. He gave me this album.

“If” by Pink Floyd

If I were a swan, I’d be gone.
If I were a train, I’d be late.
And if I were a good man,
I’d talk with you
More often than I do.

If I were to sleep, I could dream.
If I were afraid, I could hide.
If I go insane, please don’t put
Your wires in my brain. Continue reading

Lyrics of the Week – Week 35

Dedicated to forgiveness-ology.

“Love-ology” by Regina Spektor

Oh, an incurable humanist you are…
Let’s go to the movies,
I will hum you a song about nothing at all…

Sit down class, open up your textbooks to page forty-two

Porcupine-ology, antler-ology, car-ology, bus-ology, train-ology, plane-ology
Mama-ology, papa-ology, you-ology, me-ology
Love-ology, kiss-ology, stay-ology, please-ology Continue reading
