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

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

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

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???

This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time

This week, the lyric Simply Marquessa chose was: “Girl, you better have your hair weave strapped on tight…” It comes from the song, Chunky by Bruno Mars.  When I read the lyrics to the whole song, it helped me come up with the theme for this week.  It seems like we slowed things down a bit last week, but for this week we are heading to the opposite side of the spectrum.

I haven’t had much cause to celebrate lately, but I’m thinking that sometimes you just need to find a reason.  It doesn’t do anyone any good to constantly live life in fight-or-flight mode, just waiting for the next awful thing.  For my birthday at the beginning of the month, I was able to plan an impromptu get-together with my family. Honestly, it’s been the one fun thing that’s happened this month.  I’m happy we were able to do…

From the strong masculine knock at the door, I already knew who it was. I considered pretending that I wasn’t back from the salon but I couldn’t do it – not to Jake.

Never to Jake.

What will he think when he sees me?

When Debbie had offered to transform me into a redhead by installing a long weave before my hair started to fall out, I had reluctantly agreed, going against my original plan of getting a pixie cut as a way to transition to shorter hair before having no hair at all. But since she had graciously offered to do it on the salon’s dime, I couldn’t refuse her kindness.

I steeled myself for Jake’s reaction as I flung open the door. His eyes twinkled as he assessed my new look.

“Whoa! You went long instead of short? Either way, you look hot Kris!”

Jake had known about my plan to go short and had even offered to go with me but I had refused. He was a total sweetheart that had his heart on his sleeve. The woman who ended up with him would be one lucky girl. But if she wasn’t good to him, I would find a way to haunt her from my grave.

“Really? You like it?” I ran my hand gently through the lush locks, a little afraid that a small tug might make it all disengage.

“It’s sexy. Is it a wig?”

“No,” I shook the hair out to show him its flow. “It’s a weave.”

“Well, being a redhead suits you. But you better have that weave strapped on tight because I’m taking you for a ride.”

“A ride?”

“Yeah, a ride. Look…”

Jake stepped out of the way and pointed at a shiny motorcycle sitting in my driveway. It was the kind of dream bike that he’d talked about buying if he beat his cancer. And now that he had been cleared, I was ecstatic to see that he had actually followed through. Jake and I had quickly gone from being waiting room acquaintances at the hospital to good friends supporting each other in our respective fights against the big “C”.

“Oh my God! You bought it! Congrats Jake! That’s an awesome way to celebrate your victory!”

“Yes it is and I’m going to ride this bike everywhere. And I’m going to take you around with me. As soon as you’re feeling better and in remission, we’ll take a ride down to that Ben & Jerry’s Flavor Graveyard in Vermont that you always wanted to go to. But for now, grab your hat and coat so that I can take you for a quick spin.”

I grabbed my coat, pulled on my winter hat and quietly shut the front door. I headed down the stairs to join him, smiling at how optimistic Jake was for my future.

But I knew better.

From the truth coursing through my fragile veins with a vengeance, I knew that his plans for us would never see the light of day.

The only graveyard we would ever visit together would have nothing to do with Vermont.

And I would not be standing next to him.
