Song Lyric Sunday

Sing with me, sing for the years
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears
Sing with me, just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away
Yeah, sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
Sing with me, just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away

I can’t believe it’s Sunday again and time for Song Lyric Sunday which was  created by Helen Vahdati over at  This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “dream.”

I’ve chosen Dream On by Aerosmith which is an absolutely wonderful song both musically and lyrically. It tells of someone who is facing the reality of getting older (yep can definitely identify with that one!) and is looking back over their life with sadness and regret at the beginning but with acceptance and resignation at the end. The tune at the beginning is sad and haunting but rises throughout the song  to a lovely, guitar ladened crescendo.

I think that life is pretty much like that; the older you get the more accepting you are of the world around and the more the realisation comes upon you that it won’t last forever. We have to enjoy every moment because we never know if it will be our last…….

Every time when I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It went by, like dusk to dawn
Isn’t that the way
Everybody’s got the dues in life to pay
I know nobody knows
Where it comes and where it goes
I know it’s everybody sin
You got to lose to know how to win
Half my life
Is books, written pages
Live and learn from fools and
From sages
You know it’s true, oh
All these feelings come back to you
Sing with me, sing for the years
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears
Sing with me, just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away
Yeah, sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
Sing with me, just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away
[Songwriter: Steven Tyler]

 

Sing with me this Sunday because you never know when the good Lord’s going to take you away ;O)
