Song Lyric Sunday 1/21/18 – Comfort

Helen’s topic for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday post is the word comfort. For some reason, I decided to take this in a slightly different direction while going off-the-wall for the band/song selection. Normally, having someone stroke or caress your hair is a comforting act. For this song, however, it’s not something the protagonist now finds comforting at all.

This is a song by a rock band that was from New Orleans and had some decent success in the 80’s. Their debut album was Atlantic Record’s #1 highest in the company’s history

 

Written by Randy Jackson
Take your fingers from my hair
They have gotten us nowhere
We can’t last another second
For we are two, too lost for open doors
Take your memories and your ways
Let me see a brighter day
Greener fields aren’t hard to hope for
It’s just hard to go on living here without you

Somewhere I have dreamed
That you haven’t got the time to be with me
Somewhere though it seems
That you have been making lovin’ without me

Starshine, moonshine
You’re the light that shines upon me baby
I know, you’ll go
Find yourself another lover lady

Let me tell you how I feel
Loving others isn’t real
You are blind
Too blind to notice
That their love is not the love we share together

Somewhere I have dreamed
That you haven’t got the time to be with me
Somewhere though it seems
That you have been making lovin’ without me

Starshine, moonshine
Your the light that shines upon me baby
I know, you’ll go
Find yourself another lover lady

Starshine, moonshine
You’re the light that shine upon me baby
I know, you’ll go
Find yourself another lover lady
