Song Lyric Sunday: Boys

Good morning WordPress folk, I hope that you’ve had a good week! Hasn’t it gone quickly? It’s Sunday once more and time to peruse the playlists and get your groove on as we prepare for Song Lyric Sunday. I don’t know how she does it but Helen manages to come up with something new every single week and our prompt for today is boys.

If you haven’t played along please give it a go; it’s a fun way to discover new tunes and meet new bloggers. Here are some rules for you:

  • Post the lyrics to the song of your choice, whether it fits the theme or not
  • Please try to include the songwriter(s) – it’s a good idea to give credit where credit is due and it’s honestly just a simple Google search
  • Make sure you also credit the singer/band and provide a link to where you found the lyrics
  • Link to the YouTube video, or pull it into your post so others can listen to the song
  • Ping back to this post or my own Song Lyric Sunday post
  • Read at least one other person’s blog so we can all share new and fantastic music and create amazing new blogging friends in the process

See, there’s nothing to it :O)

My song choice for this week has deviated slightly from the prompt just because I wanted the opportunity to share this stunning track with you:

When your heart’s in someone else’s hands
Monkey see and monkey do
Their wish is your command
Not to blame
Everyone’s the same
All you do is love and love is all you do
I should know by now the way I fought for you
You’re not to blame, everyone’s the same
I know you think that you’re safe
Mister
Harmless deception
That keeps love at bay
It’s the ones who resist that we most want to kiss
Wouldn’t you say?
Cowboys and angels
They all have the time for you
Why should I imagine that I’d be a find for you
Why should I imagine
That I’d have something to say
But that scar on your face
That beautiful face of yours
In your heart there’s a trace
Of someone before
When your heart’s in someone else’s plans
Things you say and things you do
That they don’t understand
You’re not to blame
Always ends the same
You can call it love but I don’t think it’s true
You should know by now
I’m not the boy for you
You’re not to blame
Always ends the same
I know you think that you’re safe
Sister
Harmless affection that keeps things this way
It’s the ones who persist for the sake of a kiss
Who will pay and pay
Cowboys and angels
They all have the time for you
Why should I imagine that I was designed for you
Why should I believe
That you would stay
But that scar on your face
That beautiful face of yours
Don’t you think that I’d know
They’ve hurt you, before
Take this man to your place
Maybe his hands can help you forget
Please be stronger than your past
The future may still give you a chance
The future, the future, not the past
That scar on your face
That beautiful face of yours
Don’t you think that I know
They hurt you before
Songwriters: George Michael
Cowboys & Angels lyrics © Warner/Chappell Music, Inc
For me, this song is reminiscent of late night jazz clubs; it’s around 2am and a few couples are clinging together, swaying around the dance floor, completely caught up in each other. George Michael’s voice is like honey: soft, sweet and rich and the music just flows with the rhythm of a heartbeat.
The lyrics tell of the hopelessness of loving someone who ‘loves’ for a living i.e. a prostitute. It could be a tawdry tale but instead it’s something really quite beautiful and almost innocent. It’s one of my favourite songs to chill out to and I really hope that you like it.
Have a super Sunday :O)

    Nice mellow music and I can envision the jazz club. The last 2 lines say so much, almost as if he’s been there. Beautiful selection.

    I would love to share

    Lee Brice – I Drive Your Truck (Official Music Video) – YouTube
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCSMCgqlc-0
    “I Drive Your Truck” is a song written by Jessi Alexander, Connie Harrington, and Jimmy Yeary and recorded by American country music artist Lee Brice.

    Don’t know if it will come through or not. It’s about the loss of this guy’s friend.

    For me, the song is about me driving my late husband’s truck. I’ve posted photos on my page several times if anyone wants to go check out the 1957 F100 HolmanMoody truck. booboosoo.wordpress.com
    This song rings through my head as I drive it.
