Can’t Stop the Feeling!     Justin Timberlake

I got this feeling inside my bones

It goes electric, wavey when I turn it on

All through my city, all through my home

We’re flying up, no ceiling, when we in our zone

I got that sunshine in my pocket

Got that good soul in my feet

I feel that hot blood in my body when it drops

I can’t take my eyes up off it, moving so phenomenally

Room on lock, the way we rock it, so don’t stop

And under the lights when everything goes

Nowhere to hide when I’m getting you close

When we move, well, you already know

So just imagine, just imagine, just imagine

Nothing I can see but you when you dance, dance, dance

A feeling good, good, creeping up on you

So just dance, dance, dance, come on

All those things I shouldn’t do

But you dance, dance, dance

And ain’t

Now for a Tanka poem prompted by the song, Can’t Stop the Feeling.

can’t stop the feeling

the stars are high above me

good soul in my feet

waiting to trip me up soon

like toddler learning to walk

Marc Anthony – You Sang To Me

Here’s the Lyrics if you want to sing with him, I have already listened to it this morning and it lifted my day, those words “You sang to me” will be in my head all day. Cheers!

I just wanted you to comfort me
when I called you late last night you see
I was fallin’ into love
oh yes, I was crashin’ into love
oh of all the words you sang to me
about life, the truth and being free yea
you sang to me, oh how you sang to me
girl I live off how you make me feel
so I question all this being real
cuz I’m not afraid to love
for the first time, I’m not afraid of love
oh, this day seems made for you and me
and you showed me what life needs to be
yea you sang to me, oh you sang to me
all the while you were in front of me I never realized
I just can’t believe I didn’t see it in your eyes
I didn’t see it, I can’t believe it
oh but I feel it
when you sing to me
how I long to hear you sing beneath the clear blue skies
and I promise you this time I’ll see it in your eyes
I didn’t see it, I can’t believe it
oh but I feel it
when you sing to me
just to think you live inside of me
I had no idea how this could be
now I’m crazy for your love
can’t believe I’m crazy for your love
the words you said you sang to me
and you showed me where I wanna be
yea you sang to me, oh you sang to me.

Ed Sheehan – Some of the Lyrics for Castle on the Hill

When I was six years old I broke my leg

I was running from my brother and his friends

And tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass I rolled down

I was younger then, take me back to when I

Found my heart and broke it here

Made friends and lost them through the years

And I’ve not seen the roaring fields in so long, I know I’ve grown

But I can’t wait to go home

I’m on my way

Driving at ninety down those country lanes

Singing to “Tiny Dancer”

And I miss the way you make me feel, and it’s real

We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill

Fifteen years old and smoking hand-rolled cigarettes

Running from the law through the backfields and getting drunk with my friends

Had my first kiss on a Friday night, I don’t reckon that I did it right

But I…

Sweet Serendipity by Lee DeWyze

A few lines from the song.

And I’ve got one pair of jeans

They’ve been stretched too far

And now they’re weak at the seams

I can’t say what’s next

And I got nothing up my sleeve

But I don’t lose my head

Here is a Tanka prompted by the song – Sweet Serendipity by Lee DeWyze

he has nothing now

somethings keeping him afloat

bare necessaries

watch the sun set over him

giving strength for the next day
