Love This Song!!!!!! It rings true. I think there is so many people that no one ever notices, suffering and alone. People doing the wrong things, heading the wrong way.. I think we need to offer them hope and encouragement. It is a shame that people we would consider to be God’s people can be self absorbed and not even realize there is people right under their noses that need help or a kind word.

LYRICS ARE BEOW…..

 
She is running
A hundred miles an hour
In the wrong direction
She is trying
But the canyons ever widening
In the depths of her cold heart
So she sets out on another misadventure just to find
She’s another two years older and she’s three more steps behind

Does anybody hear her?
Can anybody see?
Or does anybody even know she’s going down today?
Under the shadow of our steeple
With all the lost and lonely people
Searching for the hope that’s tucked away in you and me
Does anybody hear her?
Can anybody see?

She is yearning
For shelter and affection
That she never found at home
She is searching
For a hero to ride in,
To ride in and save the day
And then walks in her prince charming
And he knows just what to say
A momentary lapse of reason
And she gives herself away

Does anybody hear her?
Can anybody see?
Or does anybody even know she’s going down today?
Under the shadow of our steeple
With all the lost and lonely people
Searching for the hope that’s tucked away in you and me
Does anybody hear her?
Can anybody see?

If judgment looms under every steeple
If lofty glances from lofty people
Who can’t see past her scarlet letter
And we never even met her

If judgment looms under every steeple
If lofty glances from lofty people
Who can’t see past her scarlet letter
And we never even met her
Never even met her

Does anybody hear her?
Can anybody see?
Or does anybody even know she’s going down today?
Under the shadow of our steeple
With all the lost and lonely people
Searching for the hope that’s tucked away in you and me
Does anybody hear her?
Can anybody see?

Does anybody hear her?
Can anybody see?
Or does anybody even know she’s going down today?
Under the shadow of our steeple
With all the lost and lonely people
Searching for the hope that’s tucked away in you and me
Does anybody hear her?
Can anybody see?

Song Share”Angel”/ Did You Know?

I SO LOVE THIS SONG! HOPE YOU WILL TOO!

Angel,  by Sara Mclachlin

 

 Here is what I found out this song was suppose to mean…
  • McLachlan wrote this about a drug-addict’s struggles with the world. The “angel” symbolizes the drugs the addict gives in to repeatedly. >>

    Suggestion credit:
    Holly – Pensacola, FL
  • As McLachlan explained on VH1 Storytellers, this song is about the Smashing Pumpkins touring keyboard player Jonathan Melvoin, who overdosed on heroin and died in 1996. McLachlan didn’t know him and was never a heavy drug user herself, but when she read about his death in Rolling Stone, she felt a connection, as she had just come off two years on the road where “there’s nothing constant but everything becomes the same.”
  • On the same Storytellers show, McLachlan said that this song only took a few hours to write, stating it was a “very easy labor.” >>

    Suggestion credit:
    Stacy – Sunbury, Australia, for above 2
  • This is the song McLachlan’s fans ask her about the most, and the one many seem to relate to. “I have the same real, visceral attachment to it that that they do,” she told the Charlotte Observer. “It was one of those beautiful songs, for me, that came out quickly and easily. I felt like more of a conduit. There wasn’t all that blood, sweat and tears attached to it. It just kind of happened. Those are blissful moments that seldom happen for me as a songwriter.”
  • This was used in the 1998 movie City of Angels during a pivotal scene. McLachlan said this was the best use of any of her songs in a TV series or movie. >>

    Suggestion credit:
    Jamie – Alameda, CA
  • The song has had enduring popularity and has been used in a number of different ways, with some uses (such as in a child memorial) misconstruing the lyrics. McLachan said during a Reddit AMA that she doesn’t mind that it gets used in so many different ways. “I think once an artist puts a song out there, it becomes open to interpretation, and I purposefully leave a certain amount of ambiguity in songs so that people can relate the songs to themselves and to their stories,” she said.

    “And it’s for me, it’s a great validation as an artist to know that something I’ve created has gone out there in the world and helped people to heal, or to feel something, in a profound way like that.”

  • This is the song at soundtracks those ubiquitous ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) commercials that have been running since 2007. The spots are a serious downer, showing frightened and abused animals in slow motion interspersed with messages like “they suffer alone and terrified.” They often come on late at night when TV stations donate unsold advertising time to charity, so you could be enjoying an old movie in the wee hours when suddenly you’re looking at a caged kitty that seems to be crying for help. Many change the channel.

    A bane of insomniacs, the spots nonetheless proved incredibly effective, generating over $30 million dollars in donations. They also inextricably linked McLachlan, who appears in some of the spots, with abused dogs and cats.

    When she made the commercial, she didn’t think it would be a very big deal; she simply donated a few hours of her time and use of her song. And while she supports the cause, she isn’t as passionate about it as many believe. “I love animals as much as the next person, but if I really wanted to attach myself to something, it would be kids and education,” she told the Charlotte Observer in 2015. She also admits that she can’t watch the spots.

Shadow Dancing/ Song

Ah, I love the Bee Gees! I don’t necessarily know any group of guys whose voices were that high-pitched and could make it sound great, in my teenage years. I have loved these guys forever. Too bad their group is no more but their music will live on and on.  Enjoy!

Andy Gibb – Shadow Dancing Lyrics
(written by Barry/Robin/Maurice/Andy Gibb)
You got me looking at that heaven in your eyes
I was chasing your direction
I was telling you no lies
And I was loving you
When the words are said, baby, I lose my head
And in a world of people, there’s only you and I
There ain’t nothing come between us in the end
How can I hold you when you ain’t even mine
Only you can see me through
I leave it up to you

Do it light, taking me through the night
Shadow dancing, baby you do it right
Give me more, drag me across the floor
Shadow dancing, all this and nothing more

All that I need is just one moment in your arms
I was chasing your affection
I was doing you no harm
And I was loving you
Make it shine, make it rain, baby I know my way
I need that sweet sensation of living in your love
I can’t breath when you’re away, it pulls me down
You are the question and the answer am I
Only you can see me through
I leave it up to you

Do it light, taking me through the night
Shadow dancing, baby you do it right
Give me more, drag me across the floor
Shadow dancing, all this and nothing more

And in this world of people there’s only you and I
There ain’t nothing come between us in the end
Ah, how can I hold you when you ain’t even mine
Only you can see me through
I leave it up to you

Do it light, taking me through the night
Shadow dancing, baby you do it right
Give me more, drag me across the floor
Shadow dancing, all this and nothing more

Do it light, taking me through the night
Shadow dancing, baby you do it right
Give me more, drag me across the floor
Shadow dancing, all this and nothing more

Do it light, taking me through the night
Shadow dancing, baby you do it right
Give me more, drag me across the floor
Shadow dancing, all this and nothing more

Landslide

Song by Fleetwood Mac

I took my love and I took it down

I climbed a mountain and I turned around

And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills

And the landslide brought me down

Oh, mirror in the sky

What is love ?

Can the child within my heart rise above

Can I sail thought the changing ocean tides

Can I handle the seasons of my life

Well, I’ve been afraid of changing

‘Cause I built my life around you

But time makes you bolder

Even children get older

And I’m getting older, too

Well, I’ve been afraid of changing

‘Cause I built my life around you

But time makes you bolder

Even children get older

And I’m getting older, too

Yes, I’m getting older, too

Take my love and take it down

Climb a mountain and turn around

And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills

Well the landslide brought me down

And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills

Well maybe the landslide will bring you down

Song in my head

“You Don’t Own Me” by Lesley Gore https://youtu.be/wAqa1iMd0DA  

 

You should take a listen to it, maybe you might could use it one day.

This song has been playing in my head all evening. Funny thing is I do not know why, since this song has nothing to do with anything going on in my life.

I guess sometimes our subconscious “talks” to us, huh?  Maybe mine knows something I don’t. Certainly, this song can be used if you are trying to convey a  certain independent like message to someone. I most certainly aren’t, at least not today. Good song though, I might need to file this somewhere instead of my “File 13”, “File 13” is a euphemism for the trash can. Who knows I might need it to convey a message one day to someone. For right now though, I am pleasantly content with blogging in my personal blog and once again changing the theme I was using. Like furniture moving, I am not easily satisfied with things in the same way all the time. I am always moving our living room around and possibly would be our whole house if I had an opportunity.

Hope you all have a good rest of your day!

Thank you for reading 🙂
