Tag: Three-Day Lyrical Challenge, Day 1

Thank you, Sara, The Bibliophagist for nominating me to take the Three-Day Lyrical Challenge! I love music almost as much as I love books, so I am excited to do this one! And it’s funny. I’ve always paid way more attention to lyrics than the average person so I love the idea of getting to share some of my favorites!

Here is Day 1!


The rules are simple:

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

I’ve loved Oasis since the 90’s. Yeah. I’m old. LOL But all of their lyrics were great. For someone who is so prickly in real life, their songwriter, Noel Gallagher, sure could be a poetic sweetheart when he wanted to be.

I’ve always  loved the lyrics to Talk Tonight. There’s something about the way he croons, “I’ll never say that I won’t ever make you cry/And this I’ll say I don’t know why…” But I love the song even more after learning the story behind it!

The Gallagher brothers were always fighting, but one night Noel had had it and was ready to break up the band. He stormed off and met a woman named Melissa Lim who talked him out of it. Thus saving the band. Read the story here.

The song seems even more beautiful and sad after learning the circumstances for which it was written….

[Verse 1]
Sittin’ on my own
Chewing on a bone
A thousand million
Miles from home
When something hit me
Somewhere right between the eyes
Sleeping on a plane
You know you can’t complain
You took your last chance
Once again
I landed, stranded
Hardly even knew your name[Chorus]
I wanna talk tonight
Until the mornin’ light
‘Bout how you saved my life
You and me see how we are
You and me see how we are

[Verse 2]
All your dreams are made
Of strawberry lemonade
And you make sure
I eat today
You take me walking
To where you played
When you were young
I’ll never say that I
Won’t ever make you cry
And this I’ll say
I don’t know why
I know I’m leavin’
But I’ll be back another day

[Chorus]
I want to talk tonight
Until the mornin’ light
‘Bout how you saved my life
(You saved my life)
I want to talk tonight
(I want to talk tonight)
‘Bout how you saved my life

(I want to talk tonight)
(I want to talk tonight)
(I want to talk tonight)
(I want to talk tonight)


Today I’m tagging: Bree, Kayla and Kaleena!

Y’all, if you don’t like being tagged, there’s no hard feelings. Just let me know so I don’t tag you again. If you feel like playing along though, I can’t WAIT to see your picks!
