Happy Song Lyric Sunday

Happy Easter Sunday too !! It is a beautius day out here in the Midwest. I thought this would be a good song for Song Lyric Sunday…Mr. Jim’s prompt for today is

Blossom/Cherry/Flower

This is a blast from the past with two of my favorite performer’s, “Neil Diamond & Barbara Striesand singing You Don’t Bring Me Flower’s.”

You don’t bring me flowers

You don’t bring me flowers
You don’t sing me love songs
You hardly talk to me anymore
When I come through the door at the end of the day

I remember when
You couldn’t wait to love me
Used to hate to leave me
Now after lovin’ me late at night

When it’s good for you, babe
And you’re feeling alright

Well, you just roll over
And you turn out the light
And you don’t bring me flowers anymore

It used to be so natural (Used to be)
To talk about forever
But used-to-be’s don’t count anymore
They just lay on the floor ’til we sweep them away

And baby, I remember
All the things you taught me

I learned how to laugh
And I learned how to cry

Well I learned how to love
And I learned how to lie

So you’d think I could learn
How to tell you goodbye

You don’t bring me flowers anymore

Well, you’d think I could learn
How to tell you goodbye

You don’t sing to me

And you don’t sing me love songs

You don’t bring me flowers anymore

  1. Maggie – United States – I retired to the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains six years ago. Life was going great - even blossoming in retirement - until a little thing called Covid decided to rattle the world. In the two years since the pandemic began, I have grown to appreciate the blogging community so much. It has been a welcome retreat from the woes of social media during this unprecedented time. I write about a lot of different things. My active blog - From Cave Walls - is the only place I really post now. There you will find a lot of stories about growing up in rural America and my recollections of a much simpler time. I write a little fiction, I post about art, and I post a lot about this place I now call home. You will see a lot of photos of what I lovingly call 'my mountains'.

  2. newepicauthor – Clermont, FL – My About Me section is meant to provide my readers with an honest picture of myself that gives a little bit of background information on who I am and I will wrap this up with a catchy image. I am a story teller and I like to use my imagination. I am interested in many things, but a few of my favorites are watching the NFL and playing golf. I do not like onions and I always make sure that my food does not contain any. I had two wonderful parents, my dad Herb Adams was a television repairman and my mother Mary Adams was mostly a stay at home mom. They are both deceased now and I miss them. I am a retired Electrical Engineer specialized in control systems. I held many different positions because I worked mostly as a consultant. I did work as a Substitute Teacher, for a while, but the kids were awful. I am happiest when I am writing, as this gives my life has a purpose. Forming a sentence with meaningful words that articulate my inner feelings is an everyday quest for me. Every writer needs to tell their story, and all writers have their own style. All stories starts off with characters, who are able to entertain the reader. Creating realistic lovable characters is the best way to tell a story. If you are able to develop characters that become real to you, then you will know exactly what they will do say and do next and this lets your story progress to the completion. Writing changes everything and having the calling to create something new through the power of words is much more than just making marks on a page. Once written, a book can be used by many people to learn and be entertained. The act of writing can be compared to the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle as it contains an inherent fuzziness, because various people may derive different meanings from reading the same words. You can never know the true nature of written words and the best I can do is hope is that people will understand the meanings that I am trying to convey. There are no clear-cut laws on how to write and it is impossible for me to determine how my readers react to my books.

    Nice choice Scarlett. This song tells the story of two lovers who have drifted apart while they are going through the motions of being in a relationship combining their heartaches in this life that they share together.
