Put Your Arms Around Me

Decisions decisions!  Oh what to choose for Day Two of the 3-Day Lyric Challenge, which I was nominated for by talesfromthemindofkristian.  It is hard to pick only three!

Have a look at Kristian’s post below to see what is involved in this very fun challenge:

The Rules:

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

My apologies for publishing yesterday’s Day One of the challenge without nominating my three bloggers.  So today, I am going to nominate six bloggers!

Yesterday I mentioned I want this to be a Goldfinch themed challenge.  Goldfinch is waiting to hear from an Australian company he has been in negotiations with.  So basically, any day now I am expecting to receive word from Goldfinch to say he is booking his flights and…

…and well, it will be “Goodbye Sweet Goldfinch”…xx

In the meantime, it is so pleasant to dwell on what a wonderful year I have had with him.  He has been an unexpected blessing and bonus in my life.  But it is nearly time to let go.  Sad, oh so very sad…but he warned me a year ago this would happen.

I have chosen this song…because the chorus makes me think of how I feel at the thought of losing him.  I just want him to put his arms around me and let me believe that I’m not about to lose him.

Are you ready maybe
Are you willing to run
Are you ready to let yourself drown
Are you holding your breath
Are you ready or notAre you ready maybe
Do you long to confess
Do you feel that you’re already numb
Are you sure of yourself
Would you lie if you’re notYou tire me out
Don’t wanna let that happen
A secret scream so loud
Why did you let that happenOoh ooh so put your arms around me
You let me believe that you are someone else
Ooh ooh cause only time can take you
So let me believe
That I am somewhere else

Maybe, are you ready to break
Do you think that I push you too far
Would you open yourself
Are you reckless or not

You tire me out
Don’t wanna let that happen
A secret scream so loud
Why did you let that happen

Ooh ooh so put your arms around me
You let me believe that you are someone else
Ooh ooh cause only time can take you
So let me believe
That I am somewhere else
That I am somewhere else

Sha na na na na
Sha na na na na
Sha na na na na
Sha na na na na

Sha na na na na
Sha na na na na
Sha na na na na
Sha na na na na

Sha na na na na

Ooh ooh so put your arms around me
Ooh ooh so put your arms around me

Make me believe
Take me take me
Somewhere
Somewhere
Let me believe
Cause only time can take you
So stop
