Behind My Blue Eyes ~ Thursday Inspiration (Adult Content)

It’s Thursday, which means it is Thursday Inspiration Day 🙂 Jim hosts this prompt, and he gives several ways to participate.

“Respond to this challenge, by either by using the prompt word behind, or going with the above picture, or by means of the song ‘Bring It On Home to Me’, or by going with another song by Sam Cooke, or anything else that you think fits.”

I always have to be extra…mostly because that is who I am. Plus, my love of music is HUGE. I will be doing all of the above.

For the prompt word “behind”, I am sharing Limp Bizkit’s version of Behind Blue Eyes, which was originally done by The Who. Their version is great too, but I like the musical arrangement better in Limp Bizkit’s song. I relate to this song, and I always have…probably because I have blue eyes. I always have had dark hair and blue eyes (until I had to dye it because I have gone really really gray). It’s definitely one of my emo songs.

“Behind Blue Eyes”
(originally by The Who)

No one knows what it’s like to be the bad man
To be the sad man behind blue eyes
And no one knows what it’s like to be hated
To be fated to telling only lies

But my dreams, they aren’t as empty
As my conscience seems to be
I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance that’s never free

No one knows what it’s like to feel these feelings
Like I do, and I blame you
No one bites back as hard on their anger
None of my pain and woe can show through

But my dreams, they aren’t as empty
As my conscience seems to be
I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance that’s never free

Discover, L.I.M.P., say it
Discover, L.I.M.P., say it
Discover, L.I.M.P., say it
Discover, L.I.M.P., say it
Discover

No one knows what it’s like to be mistreated
To be defeated behind blue eyes
No one knows how to say that they’re sorry
And don’t worry, I’m not tellin’ lies

But my dreams, they aren’t as empty
As my conscience seems to be
I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance that’s never free

No one knows what it’s like to be the bad man
To be the sad man behind blue eyes

My second song is in response to the picture, and y’all know I gotta go crazy with a picture of a butt *giggles* I won’t post the lyrics to these, but you get the jest of it 🙂

Rest In Paradise, Humpty.

Now I saved the best for last, and Jim is probably saying “Thank God” by now 😁😂🤣

Sam Cooke is one of my favorite artists that has ever graced any of our ears. He was taken way too soon purely for having a voice and not being afraid to use it for social justice. Rest in Paradise, King Sam Cooke.

Please watch this video…It shows the fight that we are fighting on a daily basis since 1616. Silence is still violence!

“A Change Is Gonna Come”

I was born by the river in a little tent
Oh, and just like the river I’ve been running ever since

It’s been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gon’ come, oh yes, it will

It’s been too hard living, but I’m afraid to die
‘Cause I don’t know what’s up there beyond the sky

It’s been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gon’ come, oh yes, it will

I go to the movie and I go downtown
Somebody keep telling me don’t hang around

It’s been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gon’ come, oh yes, it will

Then I go to my brother
And I say, “Brother, help me please”
But he winds up knockin’ me
Back down on my knees

There’ve been times that I thought I couldn’t last for long
But now I think I’m able to carry on

It’s been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gon’ come, oh yes, it will



xoxo, E.M.
