Love me harder

One of my friend is a big fan of Ariana Grande. He keeps going on and on about her. For some reason, the first few songs she sang wasn’t something I liked. I felt her voice was too child like and is yet to mature. It was just that feeling that you get when you feel that this song or singer isn’t your type. And I particularly remember arguing about her voice during a long drive 🙂 But as and when time passed by, I started to like her songs. May be not so much the old ones of her, but some of the news ones, I definitely like. I like this song from ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ (however pathetic the movie was, the album was very good) called ‘Love me harder’ with ‘The Weekend’. Here is the lyric video of that song for today’s Song Lyric Sunday.


Posting it for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday.
So, our theme for Song Lyric Sunday is to post a song you fell in love with that you didn’t expect to like. Maybe it’s a type of music you used to turn your nose up at, or maybe it’s a band or singer you prejudged without listening to them first (I’m so guilty of this). I can’t possibly be the only one…

let the words fall out

I missed last week’s prompt, because I saw it late and then didn’t have the energy to post anything at all. It almost went the same way today, but since I just finished my chores for the day and have some free time thought I will do it for sure today.
My song for this week’s song lyric Sunday is a well known song which became a kind of an anthem, I should say, for a lot of people. How many times you wish you were brave enough to say or do what you want to rather than feel or thing about what others would say about it. How many times have you thought that it would have been better if you were able to say it instead of that silence that did not convey anything at all. I know that I have felt it a lot of times especially when there are some unfair things that happen to us, to people we care, to a place where we live etc. Why don’t we do what we want to do when we know that it is right, especially when we know that it is the right thing? Because we are scared. Nothing wrong with that. We are humans. We are allowed to be afraid and scared. But as Neil Gaiman says “When you’re scared but you still do it anyway, that’s brave.” . Are we ready to ‘say what we wanna say and let the words fall out’ ?

Here is “Brave” by Singer/Songwriter Sara Bareilles

Lyrics from A-Z lyrics

You can be amazing
You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug
You can be the outcast
Or be the backlash of somebody’s lack of love
Or you can start speaking up

Nothing’s gonna hurt you the way that words do
When they settle ‘neath your skin
Kept on the inside and no sunlight
Sometimes a shadow wins
But I wonder what would happen if you

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly, I wanna see you be brave
With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly, I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

Everybody’s been there,
Everybody’s been stared down by the enemy
Fallen for the fear
And done some disappearing,
Bow down to the mighty
Don’t run, just stop holding your tongue

Maybe there’s a way out of the cage where you live
Maybe one of these days you can let the light in
Show me how big your brave is

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly, I wanna see you be brave
With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly, I wanna see you be brave

And since your history of silence
Won’t do you any good,
Did you think it would?
Let your words be anything but empty
Why don’t you tell them the truth?

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly, I wanna see you be brave
With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly, I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
See you be brave

I just wanna see you (yeah)
I just wanna see you (oh ooh)
I just wanna see you

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you

Coming Home

The prompt for this week’s Song Lyrics Sunday reminded me of this song and I couldn’t help but share and leave it at that.

Lyrics from A-Z Lyrics

And the blood will dry
Underneath my nails
And the wind will rise up
To fill my sails

So you can doubt
And you can hate
But I know
No matter what it takes

I’m coming home
I’m coming home
Tell the world that I’m coming home
Let the rain
Wash away
All the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits
And they’ve forgiven my mistakes
I’m coming home
I’m coming home
Tell the world I’m coming

Still far away
From where I belong
But it’s always darkest
Before the dawn

So you can doubt
And you can hate
But I know
No matter what it takes

I’m coming home
I’m coming home
Tell the world that I’m coming home
Let the rain
Wash away
All the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits
And they’ve forgiven my mistakes
I’m coming home
I’m coming home
Tell the world I’m coming

I’m coming home
I’m coming home
Tell the world that I’m coming home
Let the rain
Wash away
All the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits
And they’ve forgiven my mistakes
I’m coming home
I’m coming home
Tell the world I’m coming home

Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday is to post a song about home, whatever that might mean for you. (Is it weird that all my themes have to do with my own life? Or is that pretty normal?)

Rumor has it…

When it comes to anger, which by the way is today’s theme for Song Lyric Sunday, for me, no one expresses it like Adele does. You can express your anger in so many ways, but to be subtle and mean is an art, which I can never perfect. So, I give you ‘Rumor has it’ by Adele, one of my ever favorites.

Lyrics from A-Z Lyrics

Owwwwh [repeats]

She, she ain’t real,
She ain’t gonna be able to love you like I will,
She is a stranger,
You and I have history,
Or don’t you remember?
Sure, she’s got it all,
But, baby, is that really what you want?

Bless your soul, you’ve got your head in the clouds,
You made a fool out of you,
And, boy, she’s bringing you down,
She made your heart melt,
But you’re cold to the core,
Now rumor has it she ain’t got your love anymore,

Rumor has it (rumor) [x8]

She is half your age,
But I’m guessing that’s the reason that you stayed,
I heard you’ve been missing me,
You’ve been telling people things you shouldn’t be,
Like when we creep out and she ain’t around,
Haven’t you heard the rumors?

(Bless your soul!)
Bless your soul, you’ve got your head in the clouds,
You made a fool out of me,
And, boy, you’re bringing me down,
You made my heart melt, yet I’m cold to the core,
But rumor has it I’m the one you’re leaving her for,

Rumor has it (rumor) [x8]

All of these words whispered in my ear,
Tell a story that I cannot bear to hear,
Just ’cause I said it, it don’t mean that I meant it,
People say crazy things,
Just ’cause I said it, don’t mean that I meant it,
Just ’cause you heard it,

Rumor has it (rumor) [x14]

But rumor has it he’s the one I’m leaving you for.

That love, love, love

I am sure we all have heard about the ‘It wasn’t me’ Boombastic Shaggy! I heard a new song from him just last week. It was fun. Got the Shaggy feel to it. You can definitely dance to it, if you don’t mind doing some quick steps.

I found it through YouTube. I always give the YouTube recommendations and the related videos a try. You never know when you might find a song that catches your ears. Here is ‘That Love’ from Shaggy for you to enjoy.

Lyrics from Genius.com

[Intro]
You got the lovin’ that I need
You’ve got it
Baby let me plant a seed
I’ve got it
You got the lovin’ that I need
You’ve got it
Your lovin’ bring men to their knees

[Chorus]
That love, love, love
I’m missin’ my love, love, love
Straight lovin’, girl
Oh and I can’t wait to see her
Your love made me a believer
And I won’t fight these feelings anymore
I can’t get enough of your love
[Post-Chorus]
Lo-o-o-o, lo-o-o-o-ove
Lo-o-o-o, lo-o-o-o-ove
Straight lovin’, girl
Lo-o-o-o, lo-o-o-o-ove
Good lovin’, girl
Lo-o-o-o, lo-o-o-o-ove

[Verse 1]
Girl, I’m bringin’ everything I offer
If it’s not enough then tell me what you wanna
A chance to have your love would be an honor
Just know I bring the heat like a sauna
I promise I will never bring the drama
Baby we can fix this, never be a runner
Go deep, deep, deep, deep, deep like a plumber
Then I knock, knock, knock, knock, knock it with my Hummer, hey!

[Pre-Chorus]
Baby you’re the love of my life
Girl I need you right by my side
So baby, tell me what you’re doin’ tonight
Matter of fact, what you doin’ for the rest of your life?
Roger that
I’ll do anything just to see your smile
Roger that
For your love I would run more than a mile
Over any mountain, any ocean wide
I won’t stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, ’til I get…

[Chorus]
That love, love, love
I’m missin’ my love, love, love
Oh and I can’t wait to see her
Your love made me a believer
And I won’t fight these feelings anymore
I can’t get enough of your love

[Post-Chorus]
Lo-o-o-o, lo-o-o-o-ove
Lo-o-o-o, lo-o-o-o-ove
Lo-o-o-o, lo-o-o-o-ove
Lo-o-o-o, lo-o-o-o-ove

[Verse 2]
Girl I really hope you get this letter
You can never find a man will love you better
And I can keep you warmer than a sweater
And anything you need, I’ll go get you
I promise I will never leave you stranded
Angel, I love you from the very day you landed
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, like a Fiat
Have you huh, huh, huh, huh, huh, breathin’ heavy

[Pre-Chorus]
Baby you’re the love of my life
Girl I need you right by my side
So baby, tell me what you’re doin’ tonight
Matter of fact, what you doin’ for the rest of your life?
Roger that
I’ll do anything just to see your smile
Roger that
For your love I would run more than a mile
Over any mountain, any ocean wide
I won’t stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, ’til I get…

[Chorus]
That love, love, love
I’m missin’ my love, love, love
Oh and I can’t wait to see her
Your love made me a believer
And I won’t fight these feelings anymore
I can’t get enough of your love

[Bridge]
You got the lovin’ that I need
Baby let me plant a seed
You got the lovin’ that I need
Your lovin’ bring men to their knees
Cause I won’t stop
Until I get every last drop
Of your love, I won’t stop
Until I get every last drop

[Chorus]
Of that love, love, love
I’m missin’ my love, love, love
Oh and I can’t wait to see her
Your love made me a believer
And I won’t fight these feelings anymore
I can’t get enough of your love

[Post-Chorus]
Lo-o-o-o, lo-o-o-o-ove
Lo-o-o-o, lo-o-o-o-ove
Lo-o-o-o, lo-o-o-o-ove
Lo-o-o-o, lo-o-o-o-ove
Lo-o-o-o, lo-o-o-o-ove
Lo-o-o-o, lo-o-o-o-ove
Lo-o-o-o, lo-o-o-o-ove
Lo-o-o-o, lo-o-o-o-ove
