Sweet Sounds Sundays – The Jam Edition

Music, it can make us sing, get up and dance and sometimes it has the power to leave a mark forever on our hearts.

Behind every piecing melody is a body of lyrics. Much like a poem, lyrics have the ability to connect with us, with our moods and our emotions. No matter how simple or how complex, I believe that lyrics, good lyrics that is, make a song shine.

For this weekend’s edition of Sweet Sounds Sundays, I have decided to feature two incredible songs. Please listen and be inspired.

City and Colour – Old Man (Neil Young remake)



“Old Man”

Old man look at my life,
I’m a lot like you were.
Old man look at my life,
I’m a lot like you were.

Old man look at my life,
Twenty four
and there’s so much more
Live alone in a paradise
That makes me think of two.

Love lost, such a cost,
Give me things
that don’t get lost.
Like a coin that won’t get tossed
Rolling home to you.

Old man take a look at my life
I’m a lot like you
I need someone to love me
the whole day through
Ah, one look in my eyes
and you can tell that’s true.

Lullabies, look in your eyes,
Run around the same old town.
Doesn’t mean that much to me
To mean that much to you.

I’ve been first and last
Look at how the time goes past.
But I’m all alone at last.
Rolling home to you.

Old man take a look at my life
I’m a lot like you
I need someone to love me
the whole day through
Ah, one look in my eyes
and you can tell that’s true.

Old man look at my life,
I’m a lot like you were.
Old man look at my life,
I’m a lot like you were.

Dallas Green ~ City and Colour

Hey Rosetta! – Welcome

“Welcome”

You’ll be a bright light coming out of the dark
All the doctors blinking hard
You’ll be lightning coming out of the storm
It’s a message, it’s a miracle.

You’ll do all right
You’ve got your mother’s eyes
You’ve got your daddy’s head
Everything you need.

For this hard ride
They’ll be strapping you on
All the ups and downs and you can’t get off
Yes, trouble we’re handing off
And you’ve got to do better than us.

It’ll be all right
You’ve got lots of time
Got your daddy’s love
Everything you want.

I can feel you and what you’re gonna be
You’ll be stronger, you’ll be smarter than me
Oh baby, I’ll say it again
You’re the most incredible thing.

Sorry, this is it
It’s cold and hard and badly lit
And there’s no backing out of it
So forget where you’ve been
It’ll never be that good again
And we must only look ahead
Soon you’re 33
And everything you tried to be
Is pulled apart by fear and greed.

Let young hands build you up
And carve your face in honest rock
With sunlight on your noble jaw
May young hands build you up
I’m happy that you’ve come along
I’m happy that you’ve come, I’m happy that you’ve come.

Oh baby, I’ll say it again
I’ll say it again, I’ll say it
You’re the most incredible thing.

Hey Rosetta!

Hope all of you are having a relaxing weekend!
