On day two of the lyrics challenge, I might as well name the Rules that go with the Three day Lyric challenge:
- Thank the person who nominated you.
I actually wasn’t nominated, but felt free to invite myself to the party, as from Sparks from a Combustible Mind kind of gave me permission to.
- Share one of your favorite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.
On day two I will be sharing Stevie Wonder’s song “I’m new”, which should be a mandatory addition to everyone’s lives.
Yesterday I wrote about the lyrics of two songs, which (imo) could be seen as two sides of the same story.
Tomorrow’s post will be about Silence, pero en español.
- Nominate three other bloggers each day.
I will follow in Melanie’s footsteps and skip this rule, partially because I don’t really have a following and partially because I think it’s nicer this way (because it paved the way for me to join in).
So have a listen if you don’t know this Stevie Wonder song already and let the lyrics quench your soul’s thirst like a big glass of freshly squeezed orange juice.
Going through ages and ages, places and spaces with never finding that someone to call your own.
But just when fate was calling quits, love appeared in the midst of despair, came and turned your life around
New like a nightingale that’s just learned to sing
I’m new, new like the very start of dawn
Like a child that’s first born with your love.
‘Cause much to your dismay, you’ve been taken far away to a land where joy is pain and sorrow’s a happy man
But at the very instant all was through, lady luck appears, says “love can do” and changed you like a Christian who’s been born again
New like a work of art that’s finally through
I’m new, new like a first flight of a dove
So safe and secure with your love.
But I’ve gotta say I owe my thanks to him for sending you my way.
Like the start of forever, with infinity to go .
Forever young I will be, ’cause with your love;
New like a starving man that’s had food to eat
Sharing with you the sweetness of your love,
