Song Lyric Sunday

Our Song Lyric Sunday theme for this week is to post a song that has something to do with “nature”.  It doesn’t necessarily have to be about nature, just as long as there is a word or phrase that mentions a form of nature in the song.  

John Denver, was an American musician, singer-songwriter, record producer, activist, actor and humanitarian, whose greatest commercial success was as a solo singer, starting in the 1970s. He was one of the most popular acoustic artists of the decade and one of its best-selling artists. He recorded and performed primarily with an acoustic guitar and sang about his joy in nature, his enthusiasm for music, and his relationship trials. “Annie’s Song” was written as an ode to Denver’s wife at the time, Annie Martell Denver. Denver “wrote this song in July 1973 in about ten-and-a-half minutes one day on a ski lift” to the top of Ajax Mountain in Aspen, Colorado, as the physical exhilaration of having “just skied down a very difficult run” and the feeling of total immersion in the beauty of the colors and sounds that filled all senses inspired him to think about his wife.

When I saw the theme was nature John Denver immediately came to mind. I have put some of the photos I have taken to the music of his song. Hope you like it

You fill up my senses like a night in the forest,
like the mountains in springtime, like a walk in the rain,
like a storm in the desert, like a sleepy blue ocean.
You fill up my senses, come fill me again.

Come let me love you, let me give my life to you,
let me drown in your laughter, let me die in your arms,
let me lay down beside you, let me always be with you.
Come let me love you, come love me again.

You fill up my senses like a night in the forest,
like the mountains in springtime, like a walk in the rain,
like a storm in the desert, like a sleepy blue ocean.
You fill up my senses, come fill me again.

  1. I’ve always loved this song! I was thinking of John Denver when I wrote the post for the theme as well. Thanks so much for sharing this. (For some reason the link didn’t work for me, but I’ve heard this song so many times and I know the lyrics almost by heart; I’m just sad I couldn’t see your photos…)
