Lyrically- Hard to say I’m sorry

Bienvenidos amigos…

I’ve procrastinating on taking up my Spanish lessons, I have no idea why I’m not all fired up with enthusiasm. Spanish is my second favourite language, yes I like it even more than I like English. Maybe if I start incorporating Spanish into my writing, I’ll be forced to learn more. Right?

It’s another Saturday and on this blog Saturdays are meant for music and lyrics. Last week’s post featured a song by Peter Cetera. When I looked him on Wikipedia, I discovered that he was a member of the group Chicago and he was the lead vocalist on one of my favourite songs ever. Incidentally, both songs were on the same cassette along with “always” by Atlantic Starr *fabulous song*, “something inside so strong” by Labi Siffre and other songs.

Knowing he was the lead vocalist in “Hard to say I’m sorry” has cemented my love for him, it’s official… I have a new man crush.

Hard to say I’m sorry

Everybody needs a little time away
I heard her say from each other
Even lover’s need a holiday
Far away from each other

Hold me now
It’s hard for me to say I’m sorry
I just want you to stay

After all that we’ve been through
I will make it up to you, I promise to
And after all that’s been said and done
You’re just the part of me I can’t let go

Everybody needs a little time away
I heard her say from each other
Even lover’s need a holiday
Far away from each other

Hold me now
It’s hard for me to say I’m sorry
I just want you to stay

After all that we’ve been through
I will make it up to you, I promise to
And after all that’s been said and done
You’re just the part of me I can’t let go

Couldn’t stand to be kept away
Just for the day from your body
Wouldn’t wanna be swept away
Far away from the one that I love

Hold me now
It’s hard for me to say I’m sorry
I just want you to know

Hold me now
I really want to tell you I’m sorry
I could never let you go

After all that we’ve been through
I will make it up to you, I promise to
And after all that’s been said and done
You’re just the part of me I can’t let go

After all that we’ve been through
I will make it up to you, I promise to

You’re gonna be the lucky one

When we get there gonna jump in the air
No one will see us ’cause there’s nobody there
After all, you know we really don’t care
Hold on, I’m gonna take you there

I offended a very special friend last week and although he says we’re cool, I want to tell him I’m sorry. I’d hate for him to pout on my account, I’d make it up to him if he’d let me.

Hasta la vista amigos, have a fun filled weekend.

15 for 15 challenge- Bloom where you’re planted

Hello everyone,
Today’s post is my February entry in the 15 for 15 challenge. The purpose and rules of this challenge are stated here. When I heard about this year’s challenge,  I jumped on it but pondered for weeks on what theme I’d choose and couldn’t decide on any. My thoughts are usually totally random and there is no guarantee that I’d be interested in my theme by the time July rolls in.

Ancient hymns – forty days and forty nights.

   Last Wednesday was Ash Wednesday which is the day Christians all over the world observe as the beginning of lent. Lent is the period in the Christian calendar that commemorates the forty day fast that Jesus Christ undertook before he began his ministry. During this time believers are supposed to fast, practice self denial and charitable works, etc.

Lyrically- The glory of love

Have you ever had a friend or family member who’s been in love and you weren’t in like or anything close? Why is it that once a person falls in love, they won’t rest until the whole world and it’s sister is in love too. They can’t imagine that you can truly be happy alone and on your own.

Taj

    We were watching a beautiful marriage proposal on YouTube, the young man made a video of their favourite moments together and it was projected on a big screen during her mother’s birthday party. With all her family and friends watching and crying (the women, why do women cry so easily?), he asked her to share his life with him. To be his best friend, confidante, Co-pilot, forever girlfriend and the mother of his children. At this point I was almost crying too, it was so romantic!

Cupcakes

One of my favourite activities of last year was baking cakes and eating them, there was something about hot and fresh cake that I found hard to resist and that’s how I ended up gaining the twenty pounds I lost last year. However I haven’t baked a cake this year, the last time I baked was on my last birthday *31st December* Continue reading →

The quest for miracles

Another miracle post? Not quite.
This post has been in my drafts since Friday the thirteenth but I haven’t finished it yet, the problem I have with writing is that if I don’t finish it at one sitting (WAEC and JAMB memories) then it’s always hard for me to revisit it. 95% of my blog post on either blog are written at once, I’ll sit down write everything in a sitting. If I leave a post for any reason then the odds are high that it will never get published.

Earlier this week, I saw two posts on a popular blog that made me laugh and feel very sad at the same time. The two stories were about finding water in a recently cut tree, read the first post and the update.
