Then I Saw Her Face

annieIt has been another great day of music for SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY. A huge variety of songs, artists and genres. I reckon that SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY is the best musical menagerie on WordPress.

I have already mentioned that I accidentally sidelines Jack’s choice for this theme and assigned it to last week’s theme. But Jack has thought of a few more songs. I don’t want to list all of them, but this one is a big favourite. I am sure you know and love it too!

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: CHIN/EARS/EYES/FACE/MOUTH/NOSE

Smiling WomanI was working with a young woman the other day who asked me so many personal questions, I told her I felt like I was being interrogated. Which made her laugh. One of the questions she asked was “Do you have children?” to which I replied that I don’t. Then she asked my age. I told her and she expressed surprise. She said I looked ten years younger because my face is so girly. I replied, “That’s probably because I don’t have any children.” Which made her laugh even more. Anyway, she is now my favourite colleague. Ten years younger hey! You can interrogate me any time honey!

I told Jack and he loved it. He said he loves my face too. It is a round smiley face that does tend to make me look more like a kid than an adult. Not striking. Not perfect. Just a friendly appealing face, with soft features. I like it. Jack says he loves it.

Personally, I think smiling faces are the most beautiful. Jack makes me smile a lot – so I guess that might be why he is taking a shine to my noggin. So to celebrate my rosy round smiling face, here is one of Jack’s song choices, “I’m A Believer” performed by The Monkees – fabulous!

I thought love was only true in fairy tales
Meant for someone else but not for me.
Love was out to get me
That’s the way it seemed.
Disappointment haunted all my dreams.

Then I saw her face, now I’m a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind.
I’m in love, I’m a believer!
I couldn’t leave her if I tried.

I thought love was more or less a givin’ thing,
Seems the more I gave the less I got.
What’s the use in tryin’?
All you get is pain.
When I needed sunshine I got rain.

Then I saw her face, now I’m a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind.
I’m in love, I’m a believer!
I couldn’t leave her if I tried.

Love was out to get me
Now, that’s the way it seemed
Disappointment haunted all my dreams

Oh, then I saw her face, now I’m a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind.
I’m in love, I’m a believer!
I couldn’t leave her if I tried.

Yes, I saw her face, now I’m a believer
And not a trace of doubt in my mind.
Said I’m a believer
I’m a believer
I’m a believer
Said I’m a believer
I’m a believer
I said I’m a believer
I’m a believer
