Happy Song Lyric Sunday !!!

So happy to be back and on my blog…Hello to all my blogger friend’s. It’s great to be back. One of my fav challenges, SLS. I usually use the 1st song that comes to mind after reading the challenge.

Today’s prompt for SLS is, “ This week the theme is to find songs with recognizable introsThanks for the prompt Mr. Jim 🙂

This is one of my fondest memories from back in the day. Pre-pandemic we use to attend many local consert’s during the summer. One of our favorite groups to follow were, “The Ides of March.” They put on a really fun evening and I even became part of the show one time.

Long story short, Jim Peterik was singing one of the song’s he wrote, “The Search is Over,” made famous by the group Survivor. We got to the concert late and came in as he was performing this song. He walked down off the stage and came right up to me and continued singing the song to me. It was a very special moment. Another concert in Milwaukee I got some pics with him. He kind of got to know us considering we were always in the front row at many of his hometown venues 😉 … It was alway such a great time !!!!

Me and Jim Peterik in Milwaukee @Musicfest…

Many great memories of concert’s gone by. Thanks Mr. Jim Peterik for a great time and great memories.

Vehicle

Hey, well
I’m the friendly stranger in the black Sedan
Won’t you hop inside my car?
I got pictures, got candy
I’m a lovable man
And I can take you to the nearest star

I’m your vehicle, baby
I’ll take you anywhere you want to go
I’m your vehicle, woman
by now I’m sure you know

That I love ya (love ya)
I need ya (need ya)
I want ya
Got to have you, child
Great God in Heaven, you know I love you

Well, if you wants to be a movie star
I can-a take you to Hollywood
But if you want to stay just like you are
You know, I think you really should

I’m your vehicle, baby
I’ll take you anywhere you want to go
I’m your vehicle, woman
by now I’m sure you know

That I love ya (love ya)
I need ya (need ya)
I want ya
Got to have you, child
Great God in Heaven, you know I love you
Oh, you know I do

Well, I’m the friendly stranger in the black Sedan
Won’t you hop inside my car?
I got pictures, candy
I’m a lovable man
And I can take you to the nearest star

I’m your vehicle, babe
I’ll take you anywhere you want to go
I’m your vehicle, woman
by now I’m sure you know

That I love ya (love ya)
I need ya (need ya)
I want ya
I got to have you
Great God in Heaven, you know I love you

And I’m your vehicle, babe, alright
You know I love ya (love ya)
I need ya (need ya)
I want ya
Got to have you, child
Great God in Heaven, you know I love you

  1. 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.
