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: DISGUST / EMBARRASMENT / GUILT / REGRET / REMORSE / SHAME
And I have to admit to my shame – I had a scheduling disaster this morning. I think I must have misread Jim’s list of themes, and I realized that I had the wrong theme for the wrong week. Embarrassing!!! 🙂 I must have seen this theme though, because I found two posts in my drafts folder with songs that fitted it. I am blaming my headaches for the confusion.
I hope you will forgive me. Some of you may have seen or are planning to see the sequel to a film that featured a brilliant sound track, including this song, “Take my Breath Away” from Berlin. The song won an Oscar and a Golden Globe. It also topped the charts around the world. Yet, apparently, differences over this song led to the break up of Berlin – a song that they did not write, and yet brought them worldwide fame….which seems a real shame.
Watching every motion In my foolish lover's game On this endless ocean Finally lovers know no shame Turning and returning To some secret place inside Watching in slow motion As you turn around and say Take my breath away Take my breath away Watching I keep waiting Still anticipating love Never hesitating To become the fated ones Turning and returning To some secret place to find Watching in slow motion As you turn to me and say My love Take my breath away Through the hourglass I saw you In time you slipped away When the mirror crashed I called you And turned to hear you say If only for today I am unafraid Take my breath away Take my breath away Watching every motion In this foolish lover's game Haunted by the notion Somewhere there's a love in flames Turning and returning To some secret place inside Watching in slow motion As you turn my way and say Take my breath away My love Take my breath away My love Take my breath away My love Take my breath away My love Written by: Giorgio Moroder (de 1), and Thomas Ross Whitlock
