SongLyricSunday: A-Ha- Take On Me #SundayBlogs #music


Hi, everyone! I am back with another song this Sunday. Today’s theme is “take/taking” from Helen Vahdati’s blog. Today, I was going to go with a more romantic-type slow song.

Today’s song is one of my favorite song from the punk-rock era. I was born in the early 80s, and love all genres from that time.

This song always gets me up and dancing. And the video is, well, I’ve never seen anything like it. 😃 I hope you all like it.

Lyrics:

We’re talking away
I don’t know what
I’m to say I’ll say it anyway
Today’s another day to find you
Shying away
I’ll be coming for your love, okay?

Take on me, (take on me)
Take me on, (take on me)
I’ll be gone
In a day or two

So needless to say
I’m odds and ends
I’ll be stumbling away
Slowly learning that life is OK
Say after me
It’s no better to be safe than sorry

Take on me, (take on me)
Take me on, (take on me)
I’ll be gone
In a day or two

Oh the things that you say
Is it live or
Just to play my worries away
You’re all the things I’ve got to remember
You’re shying away
I’ll be coming for you anyway

Take on me, (take on me)
Take me on, (take on me)
I’ll be gone
In a day

(Take on me, take on me)
(Take me on, take on me)
I’ll be gone (take on me)
In a day

SongLyricSunday: Selena- Dreaming Of You #music #love


I know, I know, I haven’t done this a while, but today, I would like to share with you all one of my favorite Latin singer, Selena. The song below was released after the death of the singer.

For Helen Vahdati theme post today is “sleep“. It’s one of those times when before you go to sleep, your mind takes you back to the events of the day. However, most times, it will take you back down memory lane of a love you hold true to your heart until you meet with them again.

In this particular video, the girl wasn’t laying down preparing to go to sleep. She was in her bedroom thinking of her love until he came along to swooped her up. It’s a beautiful song.

Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
Late at night when all the world is sleeping
I stay up and think of you
And I wish on a star that somewhere you are
Thinking of me too

[Chorus]
‘Cause I’m dreaming of you tonight
‘Till tomorrow, I’ll be holding you tight
And there’s nowhere in the world I’d rather be
Than here in my room dreaming about you and me

[Verse 2]
Wonder if you ever see me (see me)
And I wonder if you know I’m there (am I there? Am I?)
If you looked in my eyes, would you see what’s inside?
Would you even care?
I just wanna hold you close, but so far
All I have are dreams of you
So I wait for the day and the courage to say
How much I love you, yes I do!

[Chorus]
I’ll be dreaming of you tonight
‘Till tomorrow, I’ll be holding you tight
And there’s nowhere in the world I’d rather be
Than here in my room dreaming about you and me

[Bridge]
(Corazón)
I can’t stop dreaming of you
(No puedo dejar de pensar en ti)
I can’t stop dreaming
(Cómo te necesito)
I can’t stop dreaming of you
(Mi amor, cómo te extraño)

[Verse 3]
Late at night when all the world is sleeping
I stay up and think of you
And I still can’t believe that you came up to me
And said, “I love you”
I love you too!

[Chorus 3]
Now I’m dreaming with you tonight
‘Till tomorrow and for all of my life
And there’s nowhere in the world I’d rather be
Than here in my room dreaming with you endlessly
With you tonight
And there’s nowhere in the world where I’d rather be
Than here in my room, I’ll be dreaming
With you tonight

#SongLyricSunday: Alicia Keys – Like You’ll Never See Me Again #music #love


Today’s song lyric theme is ““seeing” by Helen Vahdati. 

The song I’ve chosen is one of my absolute favorite by Alicia Keys. Whenever you do something, do it as if it’s your last day on this Earth, because you don’t know what tomorrow brings.

Lyrics:

If I had no more time

No more time left to be here
Would you cherish what we had’
Was it everything that you were looking for?
If I couldn’t feel your touch
And no longer were you with me
I’d be wishing you were here
To be everything that I’d be looking for
I don’t wanna forget the present is a gift
And I don’t wanna take for granted the time you may have here with me
‘Cause Lord only knows another day is not really guaranteed

So every time you hold me
Hold me like this is the last time
Every time you kiss me
Kiss me like you’ll never see me again
Every time you touch me
Touch me like this is the last time
Promise that you’ll love me
Love me like you’ll never see me again

Oh oh oh

How many really know what love is’
Millions never will
Do you know until you lose it

That it’s everything that we are looking for
When I wake up in the morning
You’re beside me
I’m so thankful that I found
Everything that I been looking for

I don’t wanna forget the present is a gift
And I don’t wanna take for granted the time you may have here with me
‘Cause Lord only knows another day is not really guaranteed

So every time you hold me
Hold me like this is the last time
Every time you kiss me
Kiss me like you’ll never see me again
(can you do that for me baby)
Every time you touch me
(see we don’t really know)
Touch me like this is the last time
(see everyday we never know)
Promise that you’ll love me
(I want you to promise me)
Love me like you’ll never see me again
(like you’ll never see me again)

Oh oh oh oh oh

#SongLyricSunday : Adele- Hello #music #love


I hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday or going to enjoy it, depending on where you are in the world. Today’s theme is “phone calls/calling” by Helen Vahdati.

Have you ever wanted to make a call to someone but can’t reach them? A dear friend, or in most cases, a love you lost contact with? There are so much distance between the two of you. And you want to be able to reach them to apologize for whatever reason it may be, but you there may be a connection lost of the lines.

It can be a devastating thing, but you don’t give up.

P.S. I have taken the liberty of uploading the shorter version which isn’t a video, only an audio because it goes straight into playing the song. 😉

 

Lyrics:

Hello it’s me
I’ve been wondering if after all these years you’d like to meet
To go over everything
They say that time’s supposed to heal ya
But I ain’t done much healing
Hello, can you hear me?
I’m in California dreaming about who we used to be
When we were younger and free I’ve forgotten how it felt
Before the world fell at our feet There’s such a difference between us
And a million miles
Hello from the other side
I must have called a thousand times To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve done
But when I call you never seem to be home
Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I’ve tried
To tell you I’m sorry for breaking your heart
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart
Anymore

Hello, how are you?
It’s so typical of me to talk about myself, I’m sorry
I hope that you’re well
Did you ever make it out of that town
Where nothing ever happened?
It’s no secret that the both of us
Are running out of time

Hello from the other side
I must have called a thousand times To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve done
But when I call you never seem to be home
Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I’ve tried
To tell you I’m sorry for breaking your heart
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart
Anymore
(Highs, highs, highs, highs, lows, lows, lows, lows)
Anymore
(Highs, highs, highs, highs, lows, lows, lows, lows)
Anymore

(Highs, highs, highs, highs, lows, lows, lows, lows)
Anymore
(Highs, highs, highs, highs, lows, lows, lows, lows)
Anymore

Hello from the other side
I must have called a thousand times To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve done
But when I call you never seem to be home
Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I’ve tried
To tell you I’m sorry for breaking your heart
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart
Anymore

#SongLyricSunday: Fantasia- Truth Is #music #love


Today’s prompt, “truth” comes from Helen Vahdati.

Sometimes, people like to withhold the truth about how they feel or anything else out of fear or ego. It’s okay to express how you feel in whatever way you feel comfortable with. Like that saying goes, “the truth will set you free.”

 

Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
Ran into an old friend yesterday
Caught me by surprise when he called my name
He was a familiar face
From a chapter in my past

Talked for a while
Asked him how it’s been
Said that he was seeing somebody and
Told me this was gonna last
Showing me her photograph

[Hook]
And all the feelings that I thought were gone
Came rushing back to me at once
Tried to smile and hide the way I felt
But I was thinking to myself

[Chorus]
(Truth is)
I never got over you
(Truth is)
Wish I was standing in her shoes
(Truth is)
And when it’s all said and done
Guess I’m still in love with you

(Truth is)
I never should have let you go
(Truth is)
And it’s killing me cuz now I know
(Truth is)
And when it’s all said and done
Guess I’m still in love with you

[Verse 2]
We reminisce on the way things used to be
Shared a couple laughs, shared some memories
Talked about the things that changed
Some for good and some for bad

Then he said good-bye
And he paid for lunch
Promised that we’d always keep in touch
Grabbed my bags and grabbed my thoughts
Walked away and that was that

[Repeat Hook]

[Repeat Chorus]

[Bridge]
Now the truth is it hurts
But I know that the fault is mine
‘Cuz I let him go
Tried to get over it
But it’s messin’ with my mind
(Because I know)

[Repeat Chorus (2x)]

I just gotta be honest
I guess
I-I guess, I’m still in love, in love, in love
