Noted in November – 2018 #SLS Listen

In a bit of a hurry today as we are getting ready to go to a wedding that is a 1-1/2 hour drive away.  It is a bit of a swanky wedding in that the invitation specified “semi-formal” attire.  I haven’t dressed in “semi-formal” attire for quite some time and in fact “had” to go out and get a new dress and shoes.  Hubs had to get a suit since he didn’t really have the proper garb either.  Pictures later for sure…gotta get my money’s worth!

Anyway, the Song Lyric Sunday prompt for today is “Listen.”  Thanks, Helen.  I actually found this a bit difficult since all the songs that came to mind had been used.  Finally found something thanks to Willie Nelson, someone I don’t normally listen to but this is one of his songs that I really like.

A Song for You
Well I’ve been a lot places in my life and time
I’ve sung a lot of songs and I’ve made some bad rhymes
I acted out my life in stages
With ten thousand people watching
Now we’re alone and I am singing my song for you
And I know your image of me is what I hope to be
I’ve treated you unkindly but darling can’t you see
There’s no one more important to me
So darling can’t you please see through me
‘Cause we’re alone now and I’m singin’ my song for you
Well you taught me precious secrets of a truth, withholdin’ nothin’
You came out in front but I was hiding
And now I’m so much better and if my words don’t come together
Just listen to the melody for my love’s in there hiding
And I love you in a place where there’s no space or time
I love you for my life, you are a friend of mine
And when my life is over, remember when we were together
We were alone and I was singin’ my song for you
Well you taught me precious secrets of a truth, withholdin’ nothin’
You came out in front but I was hiding
And now I’m so much better and if my words don’t come together
Listen to the melody for my love is in there hiding
And I love you in a place where there’s no space or time
I’ve loved you for my life, you are a friend of mine
And when my life is over, remember when we were together
We were alone and I was singin’ my song for you
We were alone and I was singin’ my song for you
Songwriters: Hans Bouwens

I think that is kind of a good song for a wedding day, don’t you?

I picked this clip because it is from the movie “Honeysuckle Rose” which is where I first heard the song.  It was a good movie and if you haven’t seen it you should give it a shot.

I know sometimes his voice gets very low but it’s fun to watch Dyan Cannon’s expression.  Willie Nelson’s character cheated on her with Amy Irving and this is his way of saying he’s sorry.  I think she forgives him.  What do you think?

    You sound like me last year when my brother’s was semi-formal and I had to go out and get new clothes. I’m not a semi-formal gal, either. Give me blue jeans!

    I don’t remember seeing the movie, but it’s a sweet song. We’ve seen Willie in concert a couple of times, though. 🙂
