The lyrical challenge 🎢 # DAY 2

For day 2, I chose this song by the wonderful Sia β™₯β™₯

 

“Joy I Call Life”

When you fight so hard but nothing seems to turn out right
When it breaks your heart and life seems like the longest fight
When all you see is trees but you can’t see the forest
Oh baby turn to me, I’ll show you where the light is
You can count on me, I’ll stitch you into my heart
You know I carry you so deep in my heart

Oh my, oh my love’s in the air
The fire, the flame, I’m there
Yes, my love’s here on earth
The ocean, death and birth
Yes, my love’s in the sky
The pain you feel tonight
Through this joy I call life

So when you feel alone, like nobody will help you
Just think of me in all my heart I have kept you
You can count on me, I’ll stitch you into my heart
You know I carry you so deep in my heart

Oh my, oh my love’s in the air
The fire, the flame, I’m there
Yes, my love’s here on earth
The ocean, death and birth
Yes, my love’s in the sky
The pain you feel tonight
Through this joy I call life

Through tsunamis, earthquakes or a broken spirit
When you scream with your voice, you know I will hear it
When you scream with no voice, you know I will hear it
You know I will come running when I feel the earth move

Through a flood, toil and blood, through the tides of terror
Feel my love, feel my love, let it breathe forever
You know I will come running when I feel the earth move

Oh my, oh my love’s in the air
The fire, the flame, I’m there
Yes, my love’s here on earth
The ocean, death and birth
Yes, my love’s in the sky
The pain you feel tonight
Through this joy I call life

    1. I didn’t find it anywhere on youtube to share on the blog. They must have released it by mistake. So glad you loved it. I adore it so had to share with a Sia fanπŸ’–

      21. He stuck his head in the food container so it was like his microphone…search for him on FB. “Twix The Parakeet” I’ve put a video of him singing with Sia πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      22. I also used to ask him. “What does Sia sing?”
        He’d reply “Uh oh” πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚my brother tried so hard to change his favorite song but he kept asking for “Uh oh” 🀣🀣🀣

        Now that’s funny!!! That reminds me of when I was performing in my high school talent show. I was playing the piano (I was performing Alicia Keys’ Fallin’ ) I messed up a part and literally said on the microphone “Well, I messed that up!” LOL!

    1. It’s an un-released song which was posted on youtube for a short while…I don’t know why she hasn’t released it….Gorgeous lyrics and performance!

        Artists are their worst critics. Maybe she didn’t like it, or maybe she felt it “wasn’t good enough”.

      2. Sia always gives out the best songs to other artists which is fine until I hear the demo with her voice. Simply gorgeous and raw! If you can youtube the song, I think it’s somewhere but the audio is weak for copyright issues.
