Finally Lovers Know No Shame

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
