Love the Lyrics


BB here on this horribly cold and windy Summer's day ( Mother Nature has really screwed things up this year). While looking out the window the song 'Cruel Summer' by Bananarama came into my head - yes I know i'm showing my age now but it got me thinking as to how we do relate lyrics to our lives and especially the chorus.

So what is a Lyric?

In ancient Greece, a poem accompanied by a musical instrument, usually a lyre. Although the word is still often used to refer to the songlike quality in poetry, it is more generally used to refer to any short poem that expresses a personal emotion, be it a sonnet, ode, song, or elegy. 

So there we go.........a personal emotion - how true is that?
I have a page that expresses how I feel about myself (maybe only on 364 out of 365 days of the year)

The song is 'Don't Wanna Be' by Gavin McGraw
My LO design is inspired by my good mate Leanne Jago

Here are the lyrics that I have used for my journalling?

So what Lyric describes you?
How does it define you?
I'd love to get to know YOU and how YOU feel about YOU

Love your layout BB and a lovely pic. I love those lyrics, might have to take them on board. Hmmmm might have to think about what song describes me atm. I seem to have a mental block when it comes to myself. Don't mean to sound Oh woe is me, but the other day a DT application asked for you to say 3 things that you love about yourself,so I haven't done the application. That is kind of sad, but seriously I can't think of things. So there you have it, hopeless no reedeeming qualities lol.
Great Post BB

Great page BB & a very thought provoking challenge. And Mary I could think of heaps of things I like about you :) but I would struggle to find a lyric that would describe me.....probably because I don't know who I really am, but I'll try & find a song that suits. I guess we don't spend too much time thinking about ourselves is the problem xx
