Lyrical Friday

Welcome to Lyrical Friday! Music is so important in all of our creative journeys as well as in our own personal soundtrack of life.  So many songs have influenced me and I want to use this day to put up a video and lyrics of songs from all genre’s that I find to have some sort of beauty or impact, or that I just think are amusing!

Earlier this week I got this song stuck in my head so of course I had to look it up.  The lyrics really feel poetic to me and remind me of the great escape we all need every now and then.  Because Islands In The Stream, that is what we are…

Islands In The Stream with Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton


Islands In The Stream
Baby when I met you
there was peace unknown
I set out to get you
with a fine tooth comb
I was soft inside
there was somethin’ going on
You do something to me
that I can’t explain
Hold me closer and I feel no pain
Every beat of my heart
We got somethin’ goin on
Tender love is blind
It requires a dedication
All this love we feel
Needs no conversation
We ride it together, ah-ah
Makin’ love with each other, ah-ah
Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong?
Sail away with me to another world
And we rely on each other, ah-ah
From one lover to another, ah-ah
I can’t live without you
if the love was gone
Everything is nothin’
if you got no one
And you did walk in tonight
slowly losing sight of the real thing
But that wont happen to us
and we got no doubt
Too deep in love and
we got no way out
and the message is clear
This could be the year
for the real thing
No more will you cry
Baby I will hurt you never
We start and end as one
in love forever
We can ride it together, ah-ah
Makin’ love with each other, ah-ah
Sail away
Oh come sail away with me, with me

  1. Thanks, a lot- Now I won’t be able to get this song out of my head, lol I see what you mean though, fine line between song & poetry, in fact in the way back when, minstrel’s would sing the work of the great poets… But this song, my mom used to play this album all the time, was a big kenny rogers fan, over and over and over…This and that bette midler song, wind beneath my wings

  2. Hahaha, oh man I hear you Fred! This one sticks like glue. I remember this song being played around my house too. I love finding lyrics that strike as poetic, those are the songs I cling too.:)
