Three Day Lyrical Challenge – ‘When We Were Young’ Song 3 Day 3

This has been so exciting and new. I’ve had a good time doing this challenge, thank you again Happymess Happiness for the nomination.

If there’s something I’ve experienced is that music can move you to the core, a song will take you places – a specific place, a song will bring a tear to your eyes, tears of sadness or joy, but it’ll bring you a memory, a song will take you to a particular time, an hour, a minute in time, even make you feel a little melancholy. I also think unconsciously we also put on a song, sad or upbeat, all based on how we feel on the inside.

The Rules Are Simple:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Share one of your favorite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.
  3. Nominate three other bloggers each day.

The Song/Lyrics I Want To Share With You Today Is:

I couldn’t leave the ‘Three Day Lyrical Challenge’ without including Adele. She carries a special place in my ‘musical’ heart. These are the rare artists that sing and your heart is moved, because the mind goes to a place it seldom goes. And to me, this song When We Were Young from Adele, does just that. Enjoy.

Adele – ‘When We Were Young’

[Verse 1]
Everybody loves the things you do
From the way you talk to the way you move
Everybody here is watching you
Cause you feel like home, you’re like a dream come true
But if by chance you’re here alone
Can I have a moment before I go?
Cause I’ve been by myself all night long
Hoping you’re someone I used to know

[Pre-Chorus]
You look like a movie
You sound like a song
My God, this reminds me
Of when we were young

[Chorus]
Let me photograph you in this light
In case it is the last time that we might
Be exactly like we were before we realised
We were sad of getting old, it made us restless
It was just like a movie
It was just like a song

[Verse 2]
I was so scared to face my fears
Nobody told me that you’d be here
And I swear you’d moved overseas
That’s what you said when you left me

[Pre-Chorus]
You still look like a movie
You still sound like a song
My God, this reminds me
Of when we were young

[Chorus]
Let me photograph you in this light
In case it is the last time that we might
Be exactly like we were before we realised
We were sad of getting old, it made us restless
It was just like a movie
It was just like a song

[Refrain]
(When we were young)
(When we were young)
(When we were young)
(When we were young)

[Bridge]
It’s hard to admit that everything just takes me back
To when you were there, to when you were there
And a part of me keeps holding on just in case it hasn’t gone
Cause I still care, do you still care?

Happy Meme Monday: Mom’s Last Nerve Up For Grabs

Maybe it’s just my home and my little tribe, but do your kids also call you to tell you to look at what they’ve done – for the 50th time, even after you’ve already looked their way and said, “yes, that’s beautiful.” … Nope, not for my kids, that’s just not enough! But aren’t they the best at repeating things because let’s face it, maybe they’re right, maybe, just maybe there might just be something I didn’t know I missed from watching a movie, over and over and over again!

This meme made sense and made me laugh! Because as much as I’d like to hold on to my nerves and prevent it from being confiscated by my tiny tribe, it’s always at risk! … Daily.

Hope you’re having a great Monday.
