Song Lyric Sunday: Fleetwood Mac, Don’t Stop

Sunday afternoon, so let’s see what Helen @ This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time has chosen as this week’s Song Lyric Sunday theme: happiness. My task: to find a boppy, feet-moving, uplifting, tear-proof selection.

Still in a dark space, with a blank mind regarding happy lyrics. Then my feet and head heard “don’t ya look back.” When I hear the song – especially this concert version – I have to get up and shake, shake shake it.

If I can still find the video, I’ll post a song, My Happy Place, later today.

Don’t Stop

By Fleetwood Mac

Don’t stop! Don’t stop!

If you wake up and don’t want to smile,
If it takes just a little while,
Open your eyes and look at the day,
You’ll see things in a different way.

Don’t stop, thinking about tomorrow,
Don’t stop, it’ll soon be here,
It’ll be, better than before,
Yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone.

Don’t stop! Don’t stop!

Why not think about times to come,
And not about the things that you’ve done,
If your life was bad to you,
Just think what tomorrow will do.

Don’t stop, thinking about tomorrow,
Don’t stop, it’ll soon be here,
It’ll be, better than before,
Yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone.

Don’t stop! Don’t stop!

All I want is to see you smile,
If it takes just a little while,
I know you don’t believe that it’s true,
I never meant any harm to you.

Don’t stop, thinking about tomorrow,
Don’t stop, it’ll soon be here,
It’ll be, better than before,
Yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone.

Don’t stop, thinking about tomorrow,
Don’t stop, it’ll soon be here,
It’ll be, better than before,
Yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone.

Don’t you look back,
Don’t you look back,
Don’t you look back,
Don’t you look back

Don’t stop, thinking about tomorrow!

Songwriters: Christine McVie

      Glad you like it. It’s been fun listening to it, and other songs on the Dance.
      Hope you are having a good Sunday. So out of touch!
      Your prompt is getting more participants each week. Good for you.

      Glad you like the choice. Not feeling happy ended up making it easier — silly isn’t it.

        I agree. I wasn’t feeling too happy when I started this week. 😏
