Music Lyrics…

I love listening to the Lyrics of my favorite artists. Lyrics make us question our lives, relive a moment, inspire and lift us up, allow us to lose our inhibitions or simply make us smile.  Here are a few that do just that for me.  You’ll see why.

This Time…Jonathon Rhys Meyers (August Rush)

I’ve been sitting watching life pass from the sidelines
Been waiting for a dream to seep in through my blinds
I wondered what might happen if I left this all behind
Would the wind be at my back ? Could I get you off my mind
This time

(You Want to) Make a Memory…Jon Bon Jovi

Hello again, it’s you and me
Kinda always like it used to be
Sippin’ wine, killing time
Trying to solve life’s mysteries

How’s your life, it’s been awhile?
God it’s good to see you smile
I see you reaching for your keys
Looking for a reason not to leave

If you don’t know if you should stay
If you don’t say what’s on your mind
Baby just breathe
there’s nowhere else tonight we should be

You wanna make a memory?

And my all time favourite!

Better When Were Together…Jack Johnson

There’s no combination of words
I could put on the back of a postcard
No song that I could sing
But I can try for your heart,
our dreams, and they are made out of real things
like a shoebox of photographs
with sepia-toned loving
Love is the answer
at least for most of the questions in my heart,
Why are we here? And where do we go?
And how come it’s so hard?
It’s not always easy and
sometimes life can be deceiving
I’ll tell you one thing, it’s always better when we’re together

    Nothing is more satisfying than when a great melody matches up with a touching lyric and hits you where it counts. It stays with you forever and can make you feel like you’re ‘understood’ ~ not alone.

    Thanks for sharing a piece of yourself, Tracy.

    Me Too ! What a great stress break this one has been ! Thanks Trac ! I’m not a huge fan of music in general…… ya I know ! But, when it hits you ….. ” It Hits You ! ” type of music….. who can’t feel that ! What a great selection Tracy ! (Make a memory ), ( Steal a moment of time ) WoW ! Too Cool ! And as far as Jack Goes…… enough said ! Jack can be heard loud and clear coming from even my eight year old ” Brett’s ” room at any given moment on a weekend. Meaningful music I suppose is where it’s at. I’m sure someone said to me once ” All music that is inspirational ” is good. Intelligent the person who told me that !
