Song Lyric Sunday 08/12/2019 – Arms /Elbows /Knees /Legs

song-lyric-sundayThank you to Jim Adams, who hosts Song Lyric Sunday and gives us the chance to share lots of familiar, and some not so familiar, songs.

If you fancy sharing one of your favourite songs you can find out how to participate, and also listen to all the great entries, here.

I’ve been very busy this week doing a job that I’m not paid for, recruiting a new Administrator, overseeing the final stages of a building project that has been in hand for the last 6 years, and juggling volunteers and events to ensure things didn’t get out of hand. As a result, I’m sorry to say that you’ll have to do your own research this week if you want to know any more about my chosen band and song.

Obviously it’s a bit of a cheat because I chose the group Elbow, but I am including a bonus song that is called Open Arms.

I hope you enjoy this version of One Day Like This, recorded Live at British Summer Time 2017. (second video)

There seems to be a licensing issue for USA so Jade has found an alternative address to view the song:

Thanks Jade!

One Day Like This

Elbow

Drinking in the morning sun
Blinking in the morning sun
Shaking off the heavy one
Heavy like a loaded gun

What made me behave that way?
Using words I never say
I can only think it must be love
Oh, anyway, it’s looking like a beautiful day

Someone tell me how I feel
It’s silly wrong but vivid right
Oh, kiss me like the final meal
Yeah, kiss me like we die tonight

Cause holy cow, I love your eyes
And only now I see the light
Yeah, lying with me half awake
Oh, anyway, it’s looking like a beautiful day

When my face is chamois-creased
If you think I’ll wink, I did
Laugh politely at repeats
Yeah, kiss me when my lips are thin

Cause holy cow, I love your eyes
And only now I see you like
Yeah, lying with me half awake
Stumbling over what to say
Well, anyway, it’s looking like a beautiful day

Throw those curtains wide!
One day like this a year’d see me right
Throw those curtains wide!
One day like this a year’d we’ll sing it right

  1. I was not able to listen to One Day Like This because the video said it was unavailable, but I did use your link to watch the Open arms video, I have never heard of Elbow but I did enjoy this song and the orchestra and chorus backing up the group.
