Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 9/17/17

This week, the lyric Simply Marquessa chose was: “In your eyes I’ve found the missing pieces…”  However, the theme I chose doesn’t have much to do with that one lyric.  I went and read all the lyrics to Savage Garden’s I knew I loved You, and was able to come up with an interesting theme.  Besides, we did the whole “love” thing back in February, and I’m all about keeping it fresh here on the blog.

I know I’m guilty of “forward thinking”.  I try to predict how someone will react when I say certain things.  I was also guilty of thinking the absolute worst when my husband had heart surgery earlier this year.  It’s hard not to let your mind run, but honestly, we are pretty bad at predicting the future, thank god!  My husband is healthy and whole and we were able to get married only a few months after his surgery.

That being said, our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is fortune telling/predicting the future.  

As always, you can go your own way and post a song that has nothing to do with the prompt.  We’re all here sharing our love of music and lyrics, and most of all, having a great time!

If you would like to suggest a theme, I am open to suggestions.   Please either pop it in the comments or send me an email at

Here are the “rules”:

  • Post the lyrics to the song of your choice, whether it fits the theme or not
  • Please try to include the songwriter(s) – it’s a good idea to give credit where credit is due and it’s honestly just a simple Google search
  • Make sure you also credit the singer/band and provide a link to where you found the lyrics
  • Link to the YouTube video, or pull it into your post so others can listen to the song
  • Ping back to this post or my own Song Lyric Sunday post
  • Read at least one other person’s blog so we can all share new and fantastic music and create amazing new blogging friends in the process

  11. What a great theme, and I immediately thought of “The Psychic” by Crash Test Dummies. I am not the biggest fan of this band, but my husband loves the album this song comes from, “God Shuffled His Feet,” and this is one of his favorite songs from the album. I am reminded of my grandmother with the line, “The first time she met me she saw right through me,” because she had this ability and she always knew when I needed to spend the weekend when I was growing up. So, here is “The Psychic.”
    Written by Brad Roberts

    She knows the future like the palm in your hand
    She knows your past like the lay of the land
    The first time she met me she saw right through me
    Some cards and a cane in her hand, and she said:

    All the years that have come to pass
    And all the years that shall be
    I see here right before me

    She said her visions were a bane in her life
    She could not control them, they kept her up nights
    I know what you’re thinking, I haven’t been drinking
    She knew things that cut like a knife, and she said:

    All the years that have come to pass
    And all the years that shall be
    I see here right before me

    Will there be earthquakes and great tidal waves?
    Can she see back to the dinosaur days?
    How can she foresee just by squinting at me and
    Can she see me naked in her mind’s eye?

    What does she think when she foretells a disease?
    Would she keep it a secret if death stood before me?
    What could some cards hold, where is her foothold
    Can I escape what she sees? And she said:

    All the years that have come to pass
    And all the years that shall be
    I see here right before me
    I see here before me

    • I haven’t heard this band in SO long. Boy, he really does have a distinctive voice, doesn’t he? What a great choice; and you’re right, it really does make me think of grandma too. Thanks for sharing Sissy!
