#SongLyricSunday |Double Play

It’s #SLS time again, so hop over to Jim’s blog, A Unique Title For Me, by following the theme link below and check out all of today’s song choices.

This week’s theme is: Lost | Found | Hide | Seek

I have two this week, both favorites of mine that have been in my music library for quite awhile. Linkin Park’s “Roads Untraveled” is off of their Living Things album released in 2012. It was the first album showcasing LP’s “new” sound, and gave us hits like “Castle of Glass” and “Burn It Down” among others. Despite fan complaints over the new sound being too different from their original one, Living Things hit #1 on over 20 music charts around the world during its debut week – 4 charts in the US, alone. I was captured by the uniqueness of this song right away, the metallic chimes that remind me of some kind of steampunk music box invention combined with my favorite instrument, the piano, left me helplessly infatuated. I wish there were more lyrics, honestly, but it’s still a good song to listen to.

The song is sung mainly by Mike Shinoda with Chester Bennington as backup, until the final verse when it switches. Enjoy!

Weep not for roads untraveled
Weep not for paths left lone
‘Cause beyond every bend is a long blinding end
It’s the worst kind of pain I’ve known

Give up your heart left broken
And let that mistake pass on
‘Cause the love that you lost wasn’t worth what it cost
And in time you’ll be glad it’s gone

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa

Weep not for roads untraveled
Weep not for sights unseen
May your love never end and if you need a friend,
There’s a seat here alongside me

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa

“Give Me Love” by Ed Sheeran was one of the first songs I ever heard from the UK superstar. I’m one of those people who rarely listens to the radio, so I usually “happen” upon new music after falling down the rabbit hole that is YouTube. The song was a last minute addition to Ed’s debut studio album: + (Plus), and according to SongFacts, “fell out” of him in about 20 minutes. He didn’t even write it down. It hit #18 on the UK charts, #9 in Australia, and the video stars Australian actress, Isabel Lucas, known for her roles in Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen, Daybreakers, Red Dawn and more.

Enjoy!

Give me love like her
‘Cause lately I’ve been waking up alone
Paint splattered teardrops on my shirt
Told you I’d let them go
And that I’ll fight my corner
Maybe tonight I’ll call ya
After my blood turns into alcohol
No, I just wanna hold ya

Give a little time to me or burn this out
We’ll play hide and seek to turn this around
All I want is the taste that your lips allow
My, my, my, my, oh give me love
My, my, my, my, oh give me love
My, my, my, my, oh give me love

Give me love like never before
‘Cause lately I’ve been craving more
And it’s been a while but I still feel the same
Maybe I should let you go
You know I’ll fight my corner
And that tonight I’ll call ya
After my blood is drowning in alcohol
No I just wanna hold ya

Give a little time to me or burn this out
We’ll play hide and seek to turn this around
All I want is the taste that your lips allow
My, my, my, my, oh give me love

Give a little time to me, or burn this out
We’ll play hide and seek to turn this around
All I want is the taste that your lips allow
My, my, my, my, oh give me love
My, my, my, my, oh give me love
My, my, my, my, oh give me love

M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover

M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover (love me, love me, love me)

M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover (give me love)
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover (give me love)
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover (give me love, love me)
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover (give me love)

My, my, my, my, oh give me love
My, my, my, my, oh give me love
My, my, my, my, oh give me love
My, my, my, my, oh give me love
