Three Day Lyrical Challenge Take Two: Day One of Three || Fun Tag

Hello beautiful people!

Since the first time through was so much fun, I figured it’d be grand to do this again! Thank you very much Ashley at Ashes Books & Bobs for tagging me in the Three Day Lyrical Challenge! I’m fairly certain Ashley (Ash? Can I call you Ash? I think we need to discuss this lol) and I started reaching out to one another mid to late 2018, and I wish I discovered her blog sooner. She’s a sweetheart…like actually a sweetheart ha-ha! Her content is wonderful and diverse, so make sure to go visit her blog!

Youngblood

5 Seconds Of Summer

Definition of youngblood:

a young inexperienced person
especially : one who is newly prominent in a field of endeavor

I’m not even sure how I discovered this song, since I seldom listen to the radio — pretty sure it was a playlist on Spotify. Whatever the case, I fell in love with this song immediately. The beat is so upbeat, making you want to get up and explore. It’s a very “I’m in my prime years” kind of song — that time in your life when you’re slowly discovering your adult self but you’re still a youngin’ in some ways.

Crazy enough, that’s what youngblood means. I didn’t even know this at first but that’s the feeling I got when I first listened to it. LOVE when that happens!


Remember the words you told me, love me ’til the day I die
Surrender my everything ’cause you made me believe you’re mine
Yeah, you used to call me baby, now you calling me by name
Takes one to know one, yeah
You beat me at my own damn game

You push and you push and I’m pulling away
Pulling away from you
I give and I give and I give and you take, give and you take

Youngblood
Say you want me
Say you want me
Out of your life

And I’m just a dead man walking tonight
But you need it, yeah, you need it
All of the time
Yeah, ooh ooh ooh

Youngblood
Say you want me
Say you want me
Back in your life

So I’m just a dead man crawling tonight
‘Cause I need it, yeah, I need it
All of the time
Yeah, ooh ooh ooh

Lately our conversations end like it’s the last goodbye
Yeah, one of us gets too drunk and calls about a hundred times
So who you been calling, baby, nobody could take my place
When you’re looking at those strangers, hope to God you see my face

Youngblood
Say you want me
Say you want me
Out of your life

And I’m just a dead man walking tonight
But you need it, yeah, you need it
All of the time
Yeah, ooh ooh ooh

Youngblood
Say you want me
Say you want me
Back in your life

So I’m just a dead man crawling tonight
‘Cause I need it, yeah, I need it
All of the time
Yeah, ooh ooh ooh

You push and you push and I’m pulling away
Pulling away from you
I give and I give and I give and you take, give and you take

You’re running around and I’m running away
Running away from you, from you

Youngblood
Say you want me
Say you want me
Out of your life

And I’m just a dead man walking tonight
But you need it, yeah, you need it
All of the time
Yeah, ooh ooh ooh

Youngblood
Say you want me
Say you want me
Back in your life

So I’m just a dead, man crawling tonight
‘Cause I need it, yeah, I need it
All of the time
Yeah, ooh ooh ooh

You push and you push and I’m pulling away
Pulling away from you
I give and I give and I give and you take, give and you take

Youngblood
Say you want me
Say you want me
Out of your life

And I’m just a dead man walking tonight


TAG! YOU’RE ALL IT!

Since I’ve already done this and it seems to be going around a lot, I’m cheating (a.k.a. being lazy) and just tagging all of you who wish to participate! The last post of this challenge is where I’ll probably tag some people.
