TTT:10 SONGS I WISH WERE BOOKS

Okay I normally don’t do Top Ten Tuesday but this week’s topic I couldn’t resist. There are so many songs that could be books that I really wish it would happen. If you don’t know Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Go give their site a try.

So here are my 10 Songs I Wish Were Books

1.DELILAH BY FLORENCE AND THE MACHINE
Drifting through the halls with the sunrise
(Holding on for your call)
Climbing up the walls for that flashing light
(I can never let go)
‘Cause I’m gonna be free and I’m gonna be fine
(Holding on for your call)
‘Cause I’m gonna be free and I’m gonna be fine
(Maybe not tonight)

2.OVER BY JOHNNYSWIM
So wake me up the dream I had is over
We were so young and now were getting older
And I can’t keep on giving you what might be meant for someone new
Wake me up the dream I had is over

All those love letters that we sent
They’re finally locked away the revelry is a decadence
And all those goodbyes we never meant
Oh no this time I won’t be welcoming a wasted breath ‘
Cause your love is on fire on mountain tops not down with me
Your heart is so wild but never free

3. DON’T WANNA FIGHT BY ALABAMA SHAKES
My lines, your lines
Don’t cross them lines
What you like, what I like
Why can’t we both be right?
Attacking, defending
Until there’s nothing left worth winning
Your pride and my pride
Don’t waste my time

4. MASTERPIECE (MONA LISA) BY JAZMINE SULLIVAN
My eyes ain’t used to these rays
I’m feeling exposed, but I can’t hide no more
I can’t hide
As the sun shines on all of my glory
My flaws don’t look so bad at all
What was I so afraid of

5.LONG & LOST BY FLORENCE AND THE MACHINE
Lost in the fog, these hollow hills
Blood running hot, night chills
Without your love I’ll be
So long and lost, are you missing me?

Is it too late to come on home?
Are all those bridges now old stone?
Is it too late to come on home?
Can the city forgive?
I hear its sad song

6.BURN TO CINDER BY EPICA
Deep in the night, boundless violence will seethe with the danger
Our laws collide not allowing another contender
When the wine drinks itself, you will burn to a cinder
We’re fighting time awaiting the answers

I’ll never let them stake you down
Take you down
I’ll fight to find a way

7.TALKING TO GHOSTS BY FOXES
Glitter falls on a soul’s to a saint
Love has come
Trapped and away

‘Cause you never really took it serious
Did you? No you never really took life serious
Did you?

And I can’t be your pride in life
You just left me I can’t be your pride in life
You have left me
If you have left me

8.PAY DEARLY BY JOHNNYSWIM
Oh can’t you see
See your soul’s ripe for reaping
You picked a fight, but you got a war
Like a fire needs a flood

I want you to pay dearly
For what you stole from me
Say that you wont
I’ll burn down the door
I want it paid to me
It’s that easy…oh…

9.LOVERGIRL BY TEENA MARIE
I need your love and I won’t bring no pain gain
A little birdie told me that you feel the same game
I’m for the real and for you, I’m true blue
Let’s make a deal, sugar, all I want to do is be your one and only lover

I just want to be your lover girl
I just want to rock your world
Hey, hey, hey
10. W.A.Y.S BY JHENE AIKO
At forty-four minutes to four
An angel walked up to my door
Opened the windows to my soul
Told me he thinks that I should know
That there’s no slowing down
As the globe spins ’round and ’round
You gotta keep going, gotta keep going
Gotta keep going, you gotta keep going
Gotta keep going, you gotta keep going
You gotta keep going, you gotta keep going
You gotta keep going

If there’s one thing that I learned
While in those county lines
It’s that everything takes time
You have gotta lose your pride
You have gotta lose your mind
Just to find your peace of mind
You have got to trust the signs
Everything will turn out fine

So why aren’t you smiling? Why aren’t you smiling?
Life can get wild when, you caught in the whirl wind
Lost in the whirl wind, you’re chasing the wind
You gotta understand
There’s really no end, there’s really no beginning
There’s really no real, there’s really no pretending
There’s really no fail, there’s really no winning
Cause nothing really is and everything really isn’t

Those are the songs that wish were turned into books. Have any of you heard these songs? Tell me what you think.
As always thanks for stopping by.
