Song Lyric Sunday: 19th May

Jim gave us this range of themes for today May 19, 2019 –

This covers anytime throughout a day, so we are spoilt for choice.

This has always been one of my favourite songs from 1979 which I played to death as I loved the strings segment on it.
Written by Tzuke and Mike Paxman and produced by John Punter, the song was Tzuke’s only UK top 40 single, charting at number 16 on the UK Singles Chart (Wiki).

Is this a game you’re playing?
I don’t understand what’s going on
I can’t see through your frown, first you’re up then you’re down
You’re keeping me from someone I want to know.

And I need you tonight
Yes I need you tonight
And I’ll show you a sunset if you stay with me till dawn.

It’s the same old situation
Every word so finely placed
Running around my concentration
is the feeling that I’ve just got to break out and say

Oh I need you tonight
Yes I need you tonight
And I’ll show you a sunset if you stay with me till dawn.

Is this a game you’re playing?
Playing with my heart
Oh stop playing with my heart
And I’ll show you a sunset if you’ll stay with me till dawn.

Lyrics: EMI Music Publishing


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
