The End of Lyrical Fiction Friday! #lyricalfictionfriday

It’s a wrap for Lyrical Fiction Fridays!

When I created the challenge, I planned on giving it six months and now my deadline is up!

The time has come to step away from it and other challenges (except the April A to Z Challenge). Challenges take time to draft, prep and post…

I’ll be taking time in the next few weeks to mull over the vision I have for this space so stay tuned…

Bisous,

M xoxo

#SongLyricSunday – “Don’t Want You Back ” – Leela James #musicchallenge #music

This week’s Song Lyric Sunday Theme: Obsession is hosted by Helen at “This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time“.

When you are the object of someone’s unwanted obsession, it is an awful feeling…unless you take matters into your own hands like Leela James in “Don’t Want You Back”.

I love how the video reflects the lyrics.

Two o’clock in the morning, you on my phone
Tryin’ to talk to me and saying that you want me back
You need me back, and you shoulda never left me
There you go, talking that shit, same old shit
Don’t wanna hear that shit, no
I remember when you had me, you treated me bad
You treated me bad

(partial lyrics)

#SongLyricSunday – “Thinking Out Loud ” – Ed Sheeran #musicchallenge #music

If you want to join in and have some fun with Song Lyric Sunday, click link below.

This week’s Song Lyric Sunday Theme: Growing Old is hosted by Helen at “This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time“.

I always smile when I see older couples who hold hands like teenagers, laugh at each other’s jokes and who still genuinely enjoy each other’s company.

The lyrics of Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” speaks to the kind of love that gets better like wine…the kind of love that most of us long to have.

It also doesn’t hurt that this song is sampled on Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On.”

And darling I will be loving you ’til we’re 70
And baby my heart could still fall as hard at 23
And I’m thinking ’bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways
Maybe just the touch of a hand
Oh me I fall in love with you every single day
And I just wanna tell you I am

(partial lyrics)

Songwriters: Amy Wadge / Ed Sheeran

#SongLyricSunday – “What Could Have Been” – Ginuwine #musicchallenge #music

If you want to join in and have some fun with Song Lyric Sunday, click link below.

This week’s Song Lyric Sunday Theme: Apology/Sorry is hosted by Helen at “This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time“.

I don’t think that I’m alone when I say that there is something oh-so-satisfying when the one who let you go crawls back full of apologies, realizing that they made a huge mistake and begs for a second chance…

A second chance that you would never ever entertain.

I love the lyrics of this song BUT I always shake my head at how the video ends.

Foolish, foolish girl…

I didn’t appreciate when you were mine
And now I’m asking
God just once turn back the hands of time, yeah
So I can fix some wrongs give me another,
Give us another chance
Girl, I just can’t live without you
And living with regret

(partial lyrics)

Songwriters: Atozzio Towns / Melvin Coleman / Elgin Lumpkin

If you want to join in and have some fun with Song Lyric Sunday, click link below.

This week’s Song Lyric Sunday Theme: Fire is hosted by Helen at “This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time“.

Like Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” and Freddie Jackson’s “Rock Me Tonight“, Luke James’ “Make Love To Me” below could make sparks fly. 🌡🔥🌡

Temperature, risin
Heart rate, increasin
Hearing you breathe heavily.
Let me explore your body
Every position, I’ll show you everything, baby

This week’s Song Lyric Sunday Theme: Party is hosted by Helen at “This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time“.

I love all kinds of music, except for head-banging heavy metal and rap music with excessive cursing for no good reason.

But if I had to choose a song that TOTALLY describes my preferred style of music, THIS song could be it!

If a groove like this is playing, I’ll get up on the dance floor and dance.

All. By. Myself.

Sunday mornin’
Saturday night has lasted up until this moment
We’re together
Things are lookin’ up and love is fittin’ better
On you
And me

(partial lyrics)

Written by: I can’t find those credits so I assume they are by Rahsaan Patterson???
