MY LOST LOVE

I wrote

You a mushy love poem

Down my arm

On display for all to see

I Love You – Be Mine

Thinking you loved me too, but

You laughed

You said nothing to my face

Turned away

I must have read your mind wrong

Now you are gone

I feel like a fool, and lament

My Lost Love

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 11/19/17

Today, for Song Lyric Sunday, Helen has asked us about songs about growing older. Thanks, Helen! This prompt comes at the right time for me, as it is my birthday week, and I’m growing older, as we all do. 🙂

[Verse 1]
I took my love and I took it down
I climbed a mountain and I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the snow-covered hills
Well, the landslide brought me down

Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?

[Chorus]
Well, I’ve been afraid of changing cause I built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Children get older
I’m getting older, too
Well, I’ve been afraid of changing cause I built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Children get older
I’m getting older, too

I’m getting older, too

[Verse 2]
So, take this love and take it down
Yeah, and if you climb a mountain and you turn around
And if you see my reflection in the snow-covered hills
Well, the landslide brought me down
And if you see my reflection in the snow-covered hills
Well, maybe
Well, maybe
Well, maybe
Landslide brought me down

51 WEEKS/51 SONGS FROM THE PAST – WEEK 8  51-weeks-51-songs-from-the-past

51 Weeks: 51 Songs From The Past: Week 8: Glen Campbell – Rhinestone Cowboy

Thank you, Hugh, for creating this fun challenge!

***

The song I chose for this week is, “Cowboy Take Me Away”, by the Dixie Chicks. It was released in 1999, on the “Fly” album/Monument label, and written by Martie Seidel and Marcus Hummon.

***

I must say that I love all the Dixie Chicks songs, so it was hard to pick just one. You could say that I’m partial to the Dixie Chicks, because we have been long time friends with the extended family of Natalie Maines. My mother-in-law, and Natalie’s grandmother were very good friends from way back. My father-in-law also worked with her grandfather for many years. My husband was friends with their sons, who also have a singing career, and are known as the Maines Brothers Band.

We visited many times at their house, and her grandmother visited at my house, too. They all have passed on now, however. (RIP) During our visits at their house, my girls and all of their grandkids, including Natalie, would be running around the house playing. We even stayed the night over there once.

So, excuse the name-dropping, but I’m happy to have known this wonderful family.

I’ve also been lucky enough to have seen the Dixie Chicks in concert twice now. Their performances are excellent! 🙂
