Do song lyrics count for Poetry Month?

Friday, April 2, 2010

I didn't get to post about that book I used for Throwback Thursday this week like I planned. I waited until last night to write it and was entirely too exhausted. So, on a different note, I thought I would join in today on the celebration of Poetry Month. Well, assuming that song lyrics count. I thought it would be fun to post the lyrics to Pocket Full of Sunshine by Natasha Bedingfield because it sort of correlates to my blog title/theme (although for a disclaimer: I don't know, at all, what the singer was referring to when she sang this, so this is totally my own interpretation of her song). I didn't think of the correlation until much later after picking my blog title. But I like that it sort of fits. Even thought about putting the chorus in my header or on my business cards... but I didn't want to get into any trouble whatsoever with copyright laws or anything, so I'll just post the lyrics here for fun.




Pocket Full of Sunshine by Natasha Bedingfield

I got a pocket, Got a pocket full of sunshine
I got a love and I know that its all mine
Oh, woah
Do what you want
But your never gonna break me
Sticks and stone are never gonna shake me no
oh I got a pocket, Got a pocket full of sunshine
I got a love and I know that its all mine
oh, woah
Wish that you could but you aint gonna own me
Do anything but you want you cant slow me down, no,

Take me away
A secret place
A sweet escape
Take me away

Take me away
To better days
Take me away
A higher place

I got a pocket, Got a pocket full of sunshine
I got a love and I know that its all mine, Oh,
Do what you want, But you never gonna break me
Sticks and stone are never gonna shake me no, oh

Take me away
A secret place
A sweet escape
Take me away

Take me away
To better days
Take me away
A higher place

There's a place that I go, That nobody knows
Where the rivers flow, And I call it home
And theres no more lies, And the darkness is light
And nobody cries, Theres only butterflies

Take me away
A secret place
A sweet escape
Take me away

Take me away
To better days
Take me away
A higher place

The sun is on my side, It takes me for a ride
I smile up to the sky, I know I'll be alright


Maybe I should ask my husband to add butterflies to my background. ;)

Ahh, good stuff. I love this song. I saw her in concert opening for New Kids on the Block. She was really good!!!

Juju -- okay, glad it counts. =)
Yup, my hubby designed it! I can ask if he wants to do another one if you're interested. He doesn't know a whole lot about blogger so that worried him, but I think it turned out good for him not knowing.

Michelle -- haha, did I tell you I saw NKOTB in concert too?? The Jabberwockies opened for them (the dance group) but I don't remember if there was a singing opening act.

I think lyrics count as poetry. But reading the song I can tell it is intended to go with a beat that i can't decipher not having heard the song. So, reading it without that knowledge made it not flow well for me. I like your blog - I hopped over from the Book Hop.
