The Old Song

She goes on singing

the same old song, remembered

the past and what’s gone.

Moonlight

Old music playing

Beneath the quiet moonlight.

Inside, she just died.

Ha Ha by Emiliana Torrini

Anger steaming up your glasses
You’ve been holding parties all your life
‘Cause it’s long gone down
You’re still hanging around
It’s not over till it starts again
Ha ha ha
Hear me laughing
Ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha
It died out long ago
Did you hear me laughing in your head
When I saw you stuck in a rut again
Oh that drink went down smoothly
Just like the one before the last you had
Questions I have answered
You are still asking yourself again
Passed out in the gutter worn out
In your head your voices aren’t clearer now after all
Ha ha ha
Hear me laughing
Ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha
It died out long ago.

Three-Day Lyrical Challenge #3 – Day 2

Today’s song is…

What’s Forever For by Michael Martin Murphy.

I’ve been looking at people
And how they change with the times
And lately all I’ve been seeing are people
Throwing love away and losing their minds

Or maybe it’s me that’s gone crazy
‘Cause I can’t understand why
All these people keep hurting each other
When good love is so hard to come by

So what’s the glory in leaving
Doesn’t anybody ever stay together anymore
And if love never lasts forever
Tell me what’s forever for

I’ve been listening to people
And they say love is the key
And it’s not my way to let them lead me astray
It’s only that I want to believe

But I see love-hungry people
Trying their best to survive
While in their hands is a dying romance
And they’re not even trying to keep it alive

So what’s the glory in leaving
Doesn’t anybody ever stay together anymore
And if love never lasts forever
Tell me what’s forever for.

Three-Day Lyrical Challenge #3 – Day 1

Big thanks to Savvy Raj for tagging me in this Lyrical Challenge last month. Sorry that it took me quite some time to accept but here it is now! Do visit her blog here if you haven’t yet.

Rules:
1. Thank the person who nominated you.
2. Share one of your favorite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.
3. Nominate three other bloggers each day.

Today’s song is I Still by the Backstreet Boys. Yes, I’m a huge fan! It’s the kind of music I miss these days. The kind of music I’ll never get tired of listening to…

I Still – Backstreet Boys

Who are you now?
Are you still the same
Or did you change somehow?
What do you do
At this very moment when I think of you?
And when I’m looking back
How we were young and stupid
Do you remember that?

No matter how I fight it
Can’t deny it
Just can’t let you go

I still need you
I still care about you
Though everything’s been said and done
I still feel you
Like I’m right beside you
But still no word from you

Now look at me
Instead of moving on, I refuse to see
That I keep coming back
And I’m stuck in a moment
That wasn’t meant to last (to last)

I’ve tried to fight it
Can’t deny it
You don’t even know

That I still need you
I still care about you
Though everything’s been said and done
I still feel you
Like I’m right beside you
But still no word from you

No no
I wish I could find you
Just like you found me
Then I would never let you go (without you)

Though everything’s been said and done (yeah)
I still feel you (I still feel you)
Like I’m right beside you (like I’m right beside you)
But still no (still no word) word from you

Lover’s Moon by Glenn Frey

There’s a lover’s moon tonight
As I look back over my shoulder
All the stars are shining bright
Just like the nights when I used to hold her
She’s out there somewhere under the lover’s moon

Lover’s moon won’t you shine on me
I’m dancing with a memory
Wish I may, I wish I might
Have one last chance to hold her tight

And she’s waiting, I know she’s waiting 
I know she waits for me
Under the lover’s moon

There’s a lover’s moon tonight
Shining down on half of this world 
So many souls are in its light
But for me there is just one girl

And she’s waiting, I know she’s waiting 
I know she waits for me
Under the lover’s moon

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
