Is There Something by Christopher Cross

Lately I see clouds of sorrow in your eyes
Some deep sadness you can never quite disguise
Now I’m scared to ask what it’s leading to
But I’m more afraid of not asking you

Is there something that you want to tell me
Is there something that I ought to know
Are we something that’s still worth fighting for
Or should I simply let you go
Is there something I can do to reach you
Are we something more than history
I’ll find some way to convince you to stay
If you just tell me honestly
Is there something left of you and me

You’ve got secrets you’ve been keeping for too long
And I’m going crazy acting like there’s nothing wrong
I can taste the truth every time we kiss
And I can’t go on
At least not like this

Is there something that you want to tell me
Is there something that I ought to know
Are we something that’s still worth fighting for
Or should I simply let you go
Is there something I can do to reach you
Are we something more than history
I’ll find some way to convince you to stay
If you just tell me honestly
Is there something left of you and me

I don’t want to lose you
But what’s the use of holding on
I don’t really have you
If the feeling’s gone

Is there something I can do to reach you
Are we something more than history
If there’s no way to convince you to stay
And be the way we used to be
Then there’s something that I want to tell you
And I want you to believe it’s true
We had something that I’ll never forget
Even if I wanted to
‘Cause part of me will always be with you

Three-Day Lyrical Challenge – Day 3

It’s the third and final day of the Three-Day Lyrical Challenge so let me thank Sonali once again for tagging me. For my readers who haven’t checked out her blog yet, do visit here.

I’m tagging Hiral N., Shreya, and Mark Anthony.

And my third and final song is:

Swept Away by Christopher Cross

I never had anything happen so fast
Took one look and I shattered like glass
I guess I let it show 
‘Cause your smile told me you knew

That you’re everything I ever wanted at once
There’s no holding this heart 
When it knows what it wants
And I never wanted anything more than to know you

I was swept away
No one in the world but you and I
Gotta find a way 
To make you feel the way that I do

I was swept away
Without a warning
Like night when the morning begins the day
I was swept away

And so it begins
This journey of love
The summer wind carries us to places all our own
The words of a look

The language of touch
The way that you want me means so much
And I never wanted anything more 
Than to love you

I am swept away
No one in the world but you and I
Gotta find a way 
To make you feel the way that I do

I am swept away
Without a warning
Like night when the morning begins the day
I was swept away

Away, seeing my tomorrow’s in your eyes
I was swept away

Oh, I hope I wake up soon
Oh, I’m a victim of that crazy moon

The very first time you said my name
I knew it would never sound the same
Something about me has changed forever

Can’t you see I am swept away
No one in the world but you and I
Gotta find a way 
To make you feel the way that I do

I am swept away 
Without a warning 
Like night when the morning begins the day
I was swept away

Away, seeing my tomorrow’s in your eyes
Gotta find a way 
To make you feel the way that I do
I was swept away

Without a warning
Like night when the morning begins the day
I was swept away
We were swept away

Dreaming of you 
Swept away.

This song speaks of love and how its magic could catch you by surprise and well, yeah, get swept away! It gives me a melancholic, nostalgic, delightful and warmly romantic feeling whenever I hear it. It does make me feel good.

Thanks again, Sonali!

Happy Saturday, homo sapiens! 🙂
