When I saw today’s theme for Song Lyric Sunday, I thought “oh how lovely!” However, finding a song that I liked was not as easy as I thought. Eventually I settled on a song I had never heard before.
Forgive me, I don’t know a lot about the song, and my main awareness of Ellie Goulding is her involvement in a traffic incident not far from where we live. Bizarre incident I remember vividly as Robert was on that road that very morning:
The Ellie Goulding track I have picked is called “Brightest Blue”. Perhaps it is as new to you as it was to me.

Everything is heightened now It's looking so much brighter now I was lost and now I'm found Fell off the merry-go-round I was in the politics Obsessed with things I couldn't fix Kissing bigger with a fist Addicted to the thrill of it And with these colors fading People changing feelings Faking some kind of love A different flavor, seek the danger Feel new life rush into my blood Illuminated never shaded See the future when I look in the sky When I look in the sky, you give me You give me The brightest blue, the brightest blue Tonight give me the brightest blue The brightest blue, so bright There's no blue in the odyssey Even in the calmest seas Now it's all I wanna be A semi-precious mystery Yeah I love me more than you Doesn't mean I can't be true Slip into the blue lagoons I could be your muse Times are hard, people scarred We don't know if we're gonna fight Break a heart, play the card We just came along for the ride But in the dark, you're the spark See the future when I look in your eyes Cause you've given me, you give me You give me The brightest blue, the brightest blue Tonight give me the brightest blue The brightest blue, so bright Don't you worry about the future Cause this is the blue evolution I don't think this love's an illusion So let's wake up Don't you worry about the future Cause this is the blue evolution I finally see you're my greatest You're my greatest revelation The brightest blue, the brightest blue Tonight give me the brightest blue The brightest blue, so bright
