The theme for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday is to post a song with a metaphor in the title or lyrics. I decided to narrow my options down to bands I’ve seen live. I’ve been to a LOT of concerts, so that still leaves me a bunch of music to sift through. It was a difficult decision. I can’t remember exactly what year I saw Heart. It was probably around 1985. This song is definitely a blast from the past. Enjoy!
Heart ~ Barracuda
Had to turn my heart away
You smiled like the Sun, kisses for everyone
And tales, it never fails!
Bet you gonna ambush me
You’d have me down, down, down to my knees
Wouldn’t you, Barracuda?
Met up with porpoise and me
No right no wrong you’re selling a song, a name
You better make up something quick
You gonna burn it out to the wick
Aren’t you, Barracuda?
Dive down deep to save my head
You, I think you got the blues too.
Swam without looking back
Made for the western pools, silly fools!
