Back to the 1970s with this beautiful #ThrowbackThursday song from David Soul.
Don't give up on us, baby We're still worth one more try I know we put a last one by Just for a rainy evening When maybe stars are few Don't give up on us, I know We can still come through ♪ ♫ ♪
This song is now more than 20 years old, so in my opinion it qualifies as a #ThrowbackThursday track. This song has aged well. It still sounds great. But it does hit different now, knowing that the Chester (their vocalist) lost his battle to depression and anxiety. Makes you really appreciate the lyrics in this song, and all their other songs for that matter.
Why does it feel like night today? Something in here's not right today. Why am I so uptight today? Paranoia's all I got left
I don't know what stressed me first Or how the pressure was fed But I know just what it feels like To have a voice in the back of my head
Like a face that I hold inside A face that awakes when I close my eyes A face that watches every time I lie A face that laughs every time I fall (And watches everything)
So I know that when it's time to sink or swim That the face inside is here in me Right underneath my skin
It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back It's like a whirlwind inside of my head It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin ... The sun goes down I feel the light betray me...
Back to the 70s with this wonderful #ThrowbackThursday song from Bread. Gotta say, those lyrics are pretty good too. Maybe this is what emo was in the 70s haha.
Lost and all alone I always thought that I could make it on my own Since you left, I hardly make it through the day My tears get in the way And I need you back to stay
I wander through the night And search the world to find the words to make it right All I want is just the way it used to be With you here close to me I've got to make you see
That I'm lost without your love Life without you isn't worth the trouble of I'm as helpless as a ship without a wheel A touch without a feel I can't believe it's real
And someday soon, I'll wake And find my heart won't have to break ♪ ♫ ♪
Back to the 90s with today's #ThrowbackThursday track from Rockstar. What I love the most about this song are the chord changes. This is not a song you can easily figure out the chords to, just by ear. They don't make songs like this anymore.
I don't wanna lose you Girl, I need you back to me I don't wanna lose you Baby, can't you see? Oh, I need you You've been a part of me I wish someday, you'll be back home 'Cause I really miss you, darling Please come home ♪ ♫ ♪
Wonderful song for today's #ThrowbackThursday post.
You sheltered me from harm Kept me warm, kept me warm You gave my life to me Set me free, set me free
The finest years I ever knew Were all the years I had with you
And I would give anything I own Would give up my life, my heart, my home I would give everything I own Just to have you back again ♪ ♫ ♪
It's that day of the week. For today's #ThrowbackThursday track, we're back to the 70s with this classic from Dan Hill.
And sometimes when we touch The honesty's too much And I have to close my eyes and hide I wanna hold you til I die Til we both break down and cry I wanna hold you till the fear in me subsides ♪ ♫ ♪
Look into my eyes You will see What you mean to me Search your heart Search your soul And when you find me there You'll search no more
Don't tell me it's not worth tryin' for You can't tell me it's not worth dyin' for You know it's true Everything I do I do it for you ♪ ♫ ♪
