Lyricality

I heard it somewhere in a song...

Word games are just about my favorite thing ever...and I love music with an intensity that might not be considered healthy.  There's a soundtrack to my life running in my head at all times...and I remember lyrics to songs I learned before I could even talk.
Music is the color to my world...and words are something I enjoy playing with, even when I'm not stringing them into sentences.
A few years ago, I found a blog called "Lyric Game" ...a new word was announced in each post and people commented with the lyrics to a song in which that word was used.  It was based on a board game I had never played before...but I fell in love with it right away and played faithfully until one day it disappeared...it was just gone.
Years later, I've gotten over the hole it left in my life...but I haven't forgotten how much fun it was to play the game...so I decided to revive it here on my very own website ~ with a few important changes:


  •  the words chosen will follow a theme...related in some way to my books or short stories
  •  participation will be rewarded...the person with the most entries in one week will be named   "Lyrical Genius of the Week"...their names will be put onto a spiffy little button and prominently displayed here on the site all week long  =)

  •  there aren't any official rules...just play fair & be nice
  •  post as much of the lyrics as you want...or as much as you can remember ;o)
  •  well-known quotes and poetry are fair game...just try not to go too obscure  
  •  the name of the game is "Lyricality"! 


Now, to kick things off...this week's word is:



Are the wheels in your brain churning already? Leave a comment, all you lyrical geniuses...as many as you want!  I hope you have lots of fun and love the game just as much as I do! =)

Great job, Lydie & Marilyn! =)

Ok, here's mine:
I am the eye in the sky, looking at you...I can read your mind.

Marilyn Sculthorp said...

what if it's plural, like in home on the range. where the deer and the antelope play, where seldom is heard a discouraging word, and the skies are not cloudy all day.

Marilyn Sculthorp said...

twinkle twinkle little star how I wonder what you are, up above the world so high like a diamond in the sky

Shannon Taylor Hodnett said...

As long as it's a form of the word, it's ok...plural, past tense, etc. =)

The wheel in the sky keeps on turning. (your sentence under the picture made that pop into my head)

Molly Mae said...

From the lightening in the sky
As it passed me flying by -
From the thunder, and the storm -
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view -

"I went sky diving, I went rocky mountain climbing,
"I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fu Man Chu.
"And I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter,
"And I gave forgiveness I'd been denying."
An' he said: "Some day, I hope you get the chance,
"To live like you were dyin'."

When you wish upon a star, your dreams will take you very far, yeah yeah yeah yeah

Amanda Vajdak said...

Along the staircase,
I dream to hear you,
In a whisper quiet room,
Space for thinking,
Space to scream to,
But the echoes sound like you,
Not the stars at night,
In a pitch black sky. 11:11 Pm by The All American Rejects :)

Amanda Vajdak said...

Don't run away, Stop feeling fine. It's better than your worst, your worst day. No words to say, I'll give you mine, and pocket all the hurt, and just stay. Don't run away. It's better than your worst, your worst day. And when the sky is falling, don't look outside the window.
Step back and hear I'm calling. Give up, don't take the fast road. Change Your Mind by The All-American Rejects.

Amanda Vajdak said...

With just a look they shook
And heavens bowed before him.
Simply a look can break your heart.
The stars that pierce the sky;
He left them all behind.
We’re left to wonder why
He left us all behind. Miss Murder by AFI

Jana Keys said...

Starts to sing a lonesome lullaby

I get carried away by the look by the light in your eyes
Before I even realize the ride I'm on baby I'm long gone
I get carried away nothin' matters but bein with you
Like a feather flyin' high up in the sky on a windy day, I get carried away
"Carried Away" George Strait

Jana Keys said...

It was Labour day weekend, I was seventeen,
I bought a coke and some gasoline,
and I drove out to the county fair.

she was standin' there in that ticket line,
and it all started right then and there,
Oh a sailers sky made a perfect sun set,
and that's a day I'll never forget
"Barbecue Stain" Tim McGraw
