'BTT - Sing! Sing A Song'

But, enough about books … Other things have words, too, right? Like … songs!
So, today’s question?
What songs … either specific songs, or songs in general by a specific group or writer … have words that you love?
And … do the tunes that go with the fantastic lyrics live up to them?

Okay, this topic is fun. I have a list of songs that I have loved until now for some certain reasons. The tunes really go well with the lyrics that give me some sorts of inspiration when I listen to them.
  • Home by Michael Buble

'... and I've been keeping all the letters that I wrote to you, each one or line or two, 'I'm fine baby, how are you?', well I would send them but I know that it's just not enough, my words are cold and flat, and you deserve more than that...'

  • You Make Me Feel Brand New by Simply Red

'... without you, my life has no meaning or rhyme, like notes to a song out of time, how can I repay, you for having faith in me...'

  • I'm Alive by Celine Dion

'...when you bless the day, I just drift away, all my worries die, I know that I'm alive.. I get wings to fly, God knows that I'm alive..'

  • Stay the Same by Joey Mcintyre

' were meant to be the way you are exactly, don't you ever say you don't like the way you are, when you learn to love yourself, you're better off by far, and I hope you always stay the same, coz there's nothin' bout you I would change..., don't change'

  • Realize by Colbie Caillat

'...take time to realize, I'm on your side, didn't I tell you? take time to realize, this all can pass you by, didn't I tell you? but I can't spell it out for you, no it's never gonna be that simple...'

  • Everything I Own by David Gates

' there someone you know, you're loving them so, but taking them all for granted? you may lose them one day, someone takes them away, and they'll never hear the words you have to say...'

What do you think? Do any of these has effect on you?

How about yours? Happy BTT!
