#SongLyricSunday : Adele- Hello #music #love


I hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday or going to enjoy it, depending on where you are in the world. Today’s theme is “phone calls/calling” by Helen Vahdati.

Have you ever wanted to make a call to someone but can’t reach them? A dear friend, or in most cases, a love you lost contact with? There are so much distance between the two of you. And you want to be able to reach them to apologize for whatever reason it may be, but you there may be a connection lost of the lines.

It can be a devastating thing, but you don’t give up.

P.S. I have taken the liberty of uploading the shorter version which isn’t a video, only an audio because it goes straight into playing the song. 😉

 

Lyrics:

Hello it’s me
I’ve been wondering if after all these years you’d like to meet
To go over everything
They say that time’s supposed to heal ya
But I ain’t done much healing
Hello, can you hear me?
I’m in California dreaming about who we used to be
When we were younger and free I’ve forgotten how it felt
Before the world fell at our feet There’s such a difference between us
And a million miles
Hello from the other side
I must have called a thousand times To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve done
But when I call you never seem to be home
Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I’ve tried
To tell you I’m sorry for breaking your heart
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart
Anymore

Hello, how are you?
It’s so typical of me to talk about myself, I’m sorry
I hope that you’re well
Did you ever make it out of that town
Where nothing ever happened?
It’s no secret that the both of us
Are running out of time

Hello from the other side
I must have called a thousand times To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve done
But when I call you never seem to be home
Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I’ve tried
To tell you I’m sorry for breaking your heart
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart
Anymore
(Highs, highs, highs, highs, lows, lows, lows, lows)
Anymore
(Highs, highs, highs, highs, lows, lows, lows, lows)
Anymore

(Highs, highs, highs, highs, lows, lows, lows, lows)
Anymore
(Highs, highs, highs, highs, lows, lows, lows, lows)
Anymore

Hello from the other side
I must have called a thousand times To tell you I’m sorry for everything that I’ve done
But when I call you never seem to be home
Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I’ve tried
To tell you I’m sorry for breaking your heart
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart
Anymore

SongLyricSunday- Beyoncé- Crazy In Love #music


Today’s theme, “madness” comes from Helen’s blog, This Thing Called Life On Word At a Time.

Have you ever been madly or crazy in love before?

This is the remix to the original, of course. I fell in love with the song over a decade ago when I thought it was “crazy” to go “madly” or crazy in love, but I know better now. Not necessarily crazy though. Ahem.

Though the feeling can really hit you with some…um… I’ll let you fill in the blanks. This version is more seductive and dark. I love the soundtrack more so than the movie. Wasn’t feeling it like that.

Lyrics:

[Verse 1]

You got me looking, so crazy, my baby
I’m not myself, lately, I’m foolish, I don’t do this
I’ve been playing myself, baby I don’t care
Baby your love’s got the best of me, your love’s got the best of me
Baby your love’s got the best of me, maybe you’re making a fool of me
You got me sprung, but I don’t care who sees
Cause baby you got me, you got me, oh you got me, you got me…

[Verse 2]
I look and stare so deep in your eyes
I touch on you more and more every time
When you leave I’m begging you not to go
Call your name two or three times in a row
Such a funny thing for me to try to explain
How I’m feeling and my pride is the one to blame, eeh
I still don’t understand
Just how your love can do what no one else can

Hook
Got me looking so crazy right now
Your love’s got me looking so crazy right now
Got me looking so crazy right now
Your touch got me looking so crazy right now
(Your love) Got me hoping you’ll save me right now
Your kiss got me hoping you’ll save me right now (your love)
Looking so crazy in love
Got me looking, got me looking so crazy in lo-o-o-ve

SongLyricSunday- 11-12-17: “Apologize” #music 


Today’s theme prompt is “apologize/sorry” hosted by Helen Vahdati.

I had fell in love with this song when it had came out in 2007. It reminded me of times when someone knew better than to do the things they shouldn’t do to hurt you; yet, they do it anyway. You’ll give them many chances just for them to screwed up again. They would try to apologize, but then, it’s too late.


This song is by Timbaland ft. OneRepublic- “Apologize.”

 

Lyrics:

 I’m holding on your rope

Got me ten feet off the ground
And I’m hearing what you say
But I just can’t make a sound
You tell me that you need me
Then you go and cut me down, but wait
You tell me that you’re sorry
Didn’t think I’d turn around, and say

[Chorus]
It’s too late to apologize, it’s too late
I said it’s too late to apologize, it’s too late
It’s too late to apologize, it’s too late
I said it’s too late to apologize, it’s too late

[Verse 2]
I’d take another chance
Take a fall, take a shot for you
And I need you like a heart needs a beat
But that’s nothing new
I loved you with a fire red
Now it’s turning blue, and you say
Sorry like an angel
Heaven let me think was you, but I’m afraid
(Partial Lyrics)

Scheduled post. (Reposting.)

Continued from Part 1 here. 

“You’re not going anywhere.” Kevin seethes tautly.

Tyra glared back with anger flickering in her deep eyes.

“Have you lost your ever-loving mind? Let go of me!” Tyra yells, snatching her pained arm away.

Kevin glared back before letting go of her arm. “Can you blame me?”

Tyra’s dark-brown eyes were downcast, yet she contemplated her plan of action just in case Kevin conjures up any brilliant ideas.

“Why would you lie to me? Do you not know how much I love you?” Kevin inquired, taking her by the hand.

Tyra sighs. What am I doing? I’m so stupid. Tyra gave a sidelong glance at the man she tried not to fall in love with. Who would ever think love can come in many ways?

“Kevin, I sincerely apologize. I didn’t mean to hurt you, but I have to go.” Tyra pleaded.

“Yeah, you said that but where to?” Kevin wondered. All of her plans were placed on hold until further notice; plans won’t resume unless he said they can.

“Well…I have to…to pick up my children from the babysitter,” Tyra stammers. Something wasn’t right; she can feel it deep inside.

“From Ms. Yates right?”

“Yes, her.”

Kevin thought for a moment, went over to his wallet and pulls out a photo. He ambles Tyra’s way and shows her the photo. “You mean this Ms. Yates?”

Tyra took a glance at the photo, took another glance and snatched it from his hands. She gasps.

“What the-?” Tyra stares and ponders. “Is this you- with Ms. Yates?” Kevin answered yes. “But that can’t-”

“Be? How can it not? That’s clearly me in the photo. Taken… let’s see… ten years ago,” Kevin answered. He watches the confused look Tyra kept making. She was in for a rude awakening.

“So, how did you two met? I clearly didn’t introduce you two,” Tyra replied, flipping the photo over in her hands.

Clearly you didn’t. The doctor introduced us when he placed me in her hands.”

“Your mother!” Tyra yells. She felt woozy. Here she was thinking she dropped a bomb on Kevin when it’s really on her.

“Yes, my mother. That day was a devastating day for her. I mean, what man can just leave his wife, a damn good woman I may add, for a younger woman. How?”

“I’m so sorry to hear that.” Tyra shook her head in bewilderment.

“You don’t sound sorry. And in fact, your husband isn’t getting out anytime soon-”

“Wait- how do you know that? I just told you that I am married. What makes you think he’s not?” Tyra was tired of talking about nonsense. She slapped a hand across her forehead, mentally tired. She just wants to collect her children and prepare for her husband’s arrival in a few days.

“I told you my father was on duty. He is alright, yet he won’t be coming out anytime soon. Charges after charges all because he couldn’t have stopped sleeping with that- that woman.

And had the nerve to leave my mother for her! No, he won’t be getting out,” Kevin rages; he was in a zone.

“Kevin! You’re talking in riddles! What the hell are you talking about?” Tyra shouted.

“What I’m talking about is that your husband, a Mr. Washington correct? is my father! He left my mother for you and for that he will NEVER get out of prison!”

“NO!!!” Tyra wails.
