3 Day Lyric Challenge – Day 3

I have been nominated by this challenge by the fabulous Laura M Bailey at All The Shoes I Wear. See her post here:

https://alltheshoesiwear.wordpress.com/2018/10/03/3-day-lyric-challenge-day-1/

 

Ok, Confession time. She didn’t exactly nominate me, she left it an open nomination, but I fancied doing it so I have taken up the baton.

 

So the Rules:

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

 

As many of you know, I have a taste for the Old-Fashioned, those golden oldies of music (and Film) and I toyed with the idea of choosing some more modern songs for this challenge…..But then I remembered I don’t like any modern songs, so here is one of my all time favourites.

Elvis Presley – Crying in the Chapel – 1965

 

The Lyrics:

You saw me crying in the chapel
The tears I shed were tears of joy
I know the meaning of contentment
Now I’m happy with the Lord

Just a plain and simple chapel
Where humble people go to pray
I pray the Lord that I’ll grow stronger
As I live from day to day

I searched and I searched
But I couldn’t find
No way on earth to gain peace of mind

Now I’m happy in the chapel
Where people are of one accord
Yes we gather in the chapel
Just to sing and praise the Lord

You’ll search and you’ll search
But you’ll never find
No way on earth to gain peace of mind

Take your troubles to the chapel
Get down on your knees and pray
Then your burdens will be lighter
And you’ll surely find the way

 

My Nominees:

The Britchy One from Bitchin’ in the Kitchen.

Dear Ex…

and

Melanie B Cee from Sparks from a combustible mind

The Seekers – Island of Dreams – 1966

 

The Lyrics

I wandered the streets and the gay crowded places
Trying to forget you but somehow it seems
My thoughts ever stray to our last sweet embraces
Over the sea on the island of dreams

High in the sky is the bird on the wing
Please carry me with you
Far far away from the mad rushing crowd
Please carry me with you

Again I would wander where memories enfold me
There on the beautiful island of dreams

High in the sky is the bird on the wing
Please carry me with you
Far far away from the mad rushing crowd
Please carry me with you

Again I would wander where memories enfold me
There on the beautiful island of dreams
Far far away on the island of dreams

Carpenters – Top of the World – 1972

 

The Lyrics:

Such a feelin’s comin’ over me
There is wonder in most everything I see
Not a cloud in the sky
Got the sun in my eyes
And I won’t be surprised if it’s a dream

Everything I want the world to be
Is now coming true especially for me
And the reason is clear
It’s because you are here
You’re the nearest thing to heaven that I’ve seen

I’m on the top of the world lookin’ down on creation
And the only explanation I can find
Is the love that I’ve found ever since you’ve been around
Your love’s put me at the top of the world

Something in the wind has learned my name
And it’s tellin’ me that things are not the same
In the leaves on the trees and the touch of the breeze
There’s a pleasin’ sense of happiness for me

There is only one wish on my mind
When this day is through I hope that I will find
That tomorrow will be just the same for you and me
All I need will be mine if you are here

I’m on the top of the world lookin’ down on creation
And the only explanation I can find
Is the love that I’ve found ever since you’ve been around
Your love’s put me at the top of the world

Flashdance…What A Feeling

First when there’s nothing
But a slow glowing dream
That your fear seems to hide
Deep inside your mind
All alone I have cried
Silent tears full of pride
In a world made of steel
Made of stone
Well, I hear the music
Close my eyes, feel the rhythm
Wrap around
Take a hold of my heart
What a feeling
Bein’s believin’
I can have it all
Now I’m dancing for my life
Take your passion
And make it happen
Pictures come alive
You can dance right through your life
Flashdance… What a Feeling” is a song from the 1983 film Flashdance, written by Italian composer Giorgio Moroder (music), Keith Forsey and Irene Cara (lyrics), and performed by Cara.
So find whatever you are passionate about (No rude suggestions please) and DO IT.

Matt Monro – Born Free Lyrics – Music by John Barry, lyrics by Don Black

Born Free
Performed by Matt Monro
Born free, as free as the wind blows
As free as the grass grows
Born free to follow your heart
Live free, and beauty surrounds you
The world still astounds you
Each time you look at a star*Stay free, where no walls divide you
You’re free as a roaring tide
So there’s no need to hide

Born free, and life is worth living
But only worth living
Cause you’re born free

Here’s a bit more about the song:

Born Free and now I charge.
