Wednesday Words 24/04/13

2 Comments

Hello again. This weeks Wednesday words starts with lyrics from a German band called ‘Scorpions’. As the lovely Emma @crazywithtwins is on a much needed break to Devon and put up some lyrics on the theme of ‘Holiday’ I thought I do the same. Emma’s Wednesday words you can read here http://www.crazywithtwins.com/2013/04/24/wednesday-words-holiday

The Scorpions – Holiday

Let me take you far away
You’d like a holiday
Let me take you far away
You’d like a holiday
Exchange the cold days for the sun
A good time and fun
Let me take you far away
You’d like a holiday
Let me take you far away
You’d like a holiday
Let me take you far away
You’d like a holiday
Exchange your troubles for some love
Wherever you are
Let me take you far away
You’d like a holiday
Longing for the sun, you will come
To the island without name
Longing for the sun, be welcome
On the island many miles away from home
Be welcome on the island without name
Longing for the sun, you will come
To the island many miles away from home
Away from home
Away from home
Away from home

Here is a nice and slightly unusual live version of “Holiday” by the Scorpions: http://youtu.be/R1_IOW8rjE4

Now to carry on with the theme my Wednesday Word posts have in common here is another Pink song with some rather sad lyrics.

Pink “Long way to happy”

One night to you
Lasted six weeks for me
Just a bitter little pill now
Just to try to go to sleep
No more waking up to innocence
Say hello to hesitance
To everyone I meet
Thanks to you years ago
I guess I’ll never know
What love means to me but oh
I’ll keep on rolling down this road
But I’ve got a bad, bad feeling

It’s gonna take a long time to love
It’s gonna take a lot to hold on
It’s gonna be a long way to happy, yeah
Left in the pieces that you broke me into
Torn apart but now I’ve got to
Keep on rolling like a stone
Cause it’s gonna be a long long way to happy

Left my childhood behind
In a roll away bed
Everything was so damn simple
Now I’m losing my head
Trying to cover up the damage
And pad out all the bruises
too young to know i had it
So it didn’t hurt to lose it
Didn’t hurt to lose it

No but oh

I’ll keep on rolling down this road
But I’ve got a bad, bad feeling

It’s gonna take a long time to love
It’s gonna take a lot to hold on
It’s gonna be a long way to happy, yeah
Left in the pieces that you broke me into
Torn apart but now I’ve got to
Keep on rolling like a stone
Cause it’s gonna be a long long way

Now I’m numb as hell and I can’t feel a thing
But don’t worry about regret or guilt cause I never knew your name
I just want to thank you
Thank you
From the bottom of my heart
For all the sleepless nights
And for tearing me apart yeah yeah

It’s gonna take a long time to love
It’s gonna take a lot to hold on
It’s gonna be a long way to happy, yeah
Left in the pieces that you broke me into
Torn apart but now I’ve got to
Keep on rolling like a stone
Cause it’s gonna be a long long way

It’s gonna take a long time to love
It’s gonna take a lot to hold on
It’s gonna be a long, long, long, long way to happy, yeah
Left in the pieces that you broke me into
Torn apart but now I’ve got to
Keep on rolling like a stone
’cause it’s gonna be a long long way to happy

Here is a video of ‘Long way to happy’ performed live: http://youtu.be/zQH2FFLhef4

That’s it for this week, check back here next week for another instalment of Pink lyrics and the associated youtube video.

  1. Oh my I would like a holiday! Will be singing that all evening now – cheers for the ear worm!

  2. Well my holiday was not far far away but I still managed to catch the sun. We all got sunburn!
    I am rather missing Cyprus though – our usual holiday destination!

    Thanks for another great Wednesday Words xx
