Word of the Day Challenge

The word of the day today is FARCTATE.

Def:  Farctate
From the Latin farcire, meaning to fill or stuff, farctate is a botanical term meaning full as opposed to hollow; used more colloquially to mean completely satiated or full to the point of bursting.

Song Lyric Sunday – Dreams

https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2021/04/10/the-singularity/

After some pondering, I have chosen this song written by Stevie Nicks and performed by Fleetwood Mac.

Dreams – by Stevie Nicks, performed by Fleetwood Mac.

Now here you go again

You say you want your freedom

Well, who am I to keep you down?

It’s only right that you should

Play the way you feel it

But listen carefully to the sound

Of your loneliness

Like a heartbeat drives you mad

In the stillness of remembering

What you had

And what you lost…

And what you had…

And what you lost

(Oooooh)

Oh, thunder only happens when it’s raining

Players only love you when they’re playing

Say, women…they will come and they will go

When the rain washes you clean, you’ll know

You’ll know

Now here I go again, I see, the crystal visions

I keep my visions to myself

It’s only me

Who wants to wrap around your dreams and…

Have you any dreams you’d like to sell?

Dreams of loneliness…

Like a heartbeat drives you mad…

In the stillness of remembering

What you had

And what you lost…

What you had…

Ooh, what you lost

Thunder only happens when it’s raining

Players only love you when they’re playing

Women, they will come and they will go

When the rain washes you clean, you’ll know

Oh, thunder only happens when it’s raining

Players only love you when they’re playing

Say women, they will come and they will go

When the rain washes you clean, you’ll know

You’ll know

You will know

Oh, oh, oh you’ll know

Also another band covered this song very effectively was the Corrs and so I’ve included their version below for your enjoyment.
