Song A Day Challenge – Day 3


About a week ago, I was tagged by Deb at Once Upon A Hot Flash for the Song A day challenge. Thanks, Deb, I hope to delight you and my readers with a song for the remaining 3 days.

Rules:

  • Post the lyrics of a favorite song five days in a row, explain what they mean to you (if you like) and add the video if available. 
  • I’m supposed to nominate two bloggers a day. I’ll try but if I don’t, I’ll just leave the challenge open to everyone. 

Today, my nominees are:

  1. Jim at Random Writings on the Bathroom Wall
  2. Ghostmmc at Teleportingweena

Meaning:

I first heard this song on a country music radio station as I was driving home from school one day last year. It was noon and everyday at noon, the station would introduce a brand new song to start the lunch hour. I was originally pretty unimpressed with the beginning but as I listened to the lyrics and the story the song was telling, I was suddenly reminded of the relationship between my mom and stepdad.

Lyrics:

“Love Triangle”

Sittin’ on the front step
Little white suitcase
Hearing that diesel
‘Fore it hit the front gate
His headlights burnin’ down a Friday night

Southern Belle statue
Standing in the screen door
Watching her whole world
Head for an old Ford
With a man that can’t look her in the eye

Then I run to him
Big hug, jump in
And I cry for her
Out the window

Some mamas and daddies
Are loving in a straight line
Take forever to hearten
And take a long sweet ride
But some mamas and daddies
Let their heart strings tear and tangle
And some of us get stuck
In a love triangle

Bowling alley burger
Fries and a milkshake
Headed to the same old
Two-dollar matinee
‘Baby, how’s your school been,
And how’s your mom?’

Patsy Cline echoes
Back off the dashboard
Staring at my boots
And the dusty old floorboard
Baby, two weeks ain’t really all that long

Then I run to her
Wrap my arms, around her skirt
And I cry for him
Out the window

Some mamas and daddies
Are loving in a straight line
Take forever to hearten
And take a long sweet ride
But some mamas and daddies
Let their heart strings tear and tangle
And some of us get stuck
In a love triangle

In a love triangle

Some mamas and daddies
Are loving in a straight line
Take forever to hearten
And take a long sweet ride
But some mamas and daddies
Let their heart strings tear and tangle, oh

And some mamas and daddies
Ran outta love in ’94
And some mamas and daddies
Don’t even talk no more
And some mamas and daddies
Let their heart strings tear and tangle

And some of us get stuck
And some of us grow up
In a love triangle

  1. I’ve never heard this song before, sad. Sorry you had to get tied up in that. Sometimes there’s no controlling where the heart goes, and for better or worse love happens. People don’t mean to hurt others but they do.
