Song lyric Sunday

This week’s Song Lyric Sunday is about colors. The song that we have to choose must contain a color in either the title or the lyrics. 

I am choosing two songs this week. The first one mentions the color in the lyrics. I especially love this song by Blessid Union of Souls because of the message it sends across. This was released in February 1995 but I only got to listen to it the first time when I was in college around year 2000. It was heartbreaking and inspiring at the same time. I love this song so much albeit some may find this cheesy.

I Believe – Blessid Union of Souls

Walk blindly to the light and reach out for his hand
Don’t ask any questions and don’t try to understand
Open up your mind and then open up your heart
And you will see that you and me aren’t very far apart
‘Cause I believe that love is the answer
I believe that love will find the way
Violence is spread worldwide and there’s families on the street
We sell drugs to children now, oh why can’t we just see?
That all we do is eliminate our future with the things we do today
Money is our incentive now so that makes it okay
But I believe that love is the answer
I believe that love will find the way
I believe that love is the answer
I believe that love will find the way

I’ve been seeing Lisa now, for a little over a year
She says she’s never been so happy, but Lisa lives in fear
That one day Daddy’s gonna find out that she’s in love
With a Nigger from the streets
Oh how he would lose it then, but she’s still here with me
Cuz she believes that love will see it through
One day he’ll understand
He’ll see me as a person, not just a black man
‘Cause I believe that love is the answer
I believe that love will find the way
I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe that love is the answer
I believe that love will find a way
Love will find the way
Love will find the way
Love will find the way


The next song which I have chosen for this week’s prompt is Amber by 311. It’s a favorite. I love the group & their songs.

Amber – 311

Brainstorm, take me away from the norm’
I’ve got to tell you something
This phenomenon, I had to put it in a song
And it goes like

Whoa, amber is the color of your energy
Whoa, shades of gold display naturally

You want to know what brings me here
You glide through my head, blind to fear
And I know I

Whoa, amber is the color of your energy
Whoa, shades of gold display naturally

Whoa, amber is the color of your energy
Whoa, shades of gold display naturally

You live too far away
Your voice rings like a bell anyway
Don’t give up your independence
Unless it feels alright
Nothing good comes easily
Sometimes you’ve got to fight

Whoa, amber is the color of your energy
Whoa, shades of gold display naturally

Lost a thousand ships in my heart so easy
Still it’s fine from afar
And you know thatWhoa
Brainstorm
Take me away from the norm’
Whoa
I’ve got to tell you something

    1. Hi! I am glad to know that I Believe is one of your favorites too. It’s been on my playlist ever since I first heard it— the message is so profound and I can’t help not cry whenever I listen to it.

      The second pick sends more of a chillax feels… I am glad you enjoyed 💜
