3 Day Lyrical Challenge – DAY 1

ListeningToMusicEmoji

What’s going on, guys!

 

So, my good friend, Jaya of Bonne Fille, tagged me to participate in this lyrical challenge some days back.  I’m finally getting around to it! 😋  Thank you, my beautiful friend for the tag! This should be fun! 🤗

I spent a few days pondering about some of my favorite songs, but I think I found one that I can share with you guys.  As I told you all before, I am a passionate musician and there are not too many songs out there that I don’t like, so it was a very difficult task finding 3 that made the cut! Well, here are the lyrics to one of my favorite songs:

“NOT OVER YOU” – by Gavin Degraw

Dreams, that’s where I have to go
To see your beautiful face anymore
I stare at a picture of you and listen to the radio
Hope, hope there’s a conversation
We both admit we had it good
But until then it’s alienation, I know
That much is understood
And I realize


[Chorus:]

If you ask me how I’m doing
I would say I’m doing just fine
I would lie and say that you’re not on my mind
But I go out and I sit down at a table set for two
And finally I’m forced to face the truth,
No matter what I say I’m not over you, not over you

Damn, damn girl, you do it well
And I thought you were innocent
Took this heart and put it through hell
But still you’re magnificent
I, I’m a boomerang, doesn’t matter how you throw me
I turn around and I’m back in the game
Even better than the old me
But I’m not even close without you

[Chorus:]
If you ask me how I’m doing
I would say I’m doing just fine
I would lie and say that you’re not on my mind
But I go out and I sit down at a table set for two
And finally I’m forced to face the truth,
No matter what I say I’m not over you

And if I had the chance to renew
You know there isn’t a thing I wouldn’t do
I could get back on the right track
But only if you’d be convinced
So until then…

[Chorus:]
If you ask me how I’m doing
I would say I’m doing just fine
I would lie and say that you’re not on my mind
But I go out and I sit down at a table set for two
And finally I’m forced to face the truth,
No matter what I say I’m not over you
Not over you
Not over you
Not over you

 

This song can hit you to the core, especially when you get slapped by those memories of somebody you just can’t shake out of your head.  You guys should definitely listen to it. If you’re reading this post, I invite you to participate in this challenge.  Share your favorite song lyrics with everybody! 🎵🎶🎵

 

Sending my love to all of you!
