Music Lyrics #9- Feeling that Way/Anytime (Journey)


It’s funny to me how songs that I didn’t think meant anything for years then, when heard years later truly touch me. “Feeling That Way/Anytime, by Journey, an oldie from the late 70’s is one of those songs. I think when you see the lyrics, you’ll understand how this song fits into the theme of bullying and how many friends and parents can feel about victimization. While they are rocking out, they then share the message deep in the lyrics. And heck, I just enjoy the song and it makes me feel better as I hear it. Plus, seeing Wolfman Jack at the beginning brings me back to my youth as well. I hope it does for you too.

Opened my eyes to a new kind of way
All the good times that you saved
Are you feeling,
You feeling that way too
Or am I just,
Am I just a fool

When the summer’s gone
She’ll be there standing by the light
Once she’s been to where she’s gone to
She should know wrong from right

A new road’s waiting, you touched my life
Soft and warm on a summer’s night
You’re the only one, the only one I love
The lovely one, I’m thinking of

Ooh, ooh Anytime that you want me
Ooh, ooh Anytime that you want me
Ooh, ooh Anytime that you want me to
Ooh, ooh Anytime that you need me

I’m standing here with my arms a mile wide
Hoping and praying for you
Listen to me and enlighten me
I hope that you need me too, ’cause,

oh, ooh Anytime that you want me
Ooh, ooh Anytime that you want me
Ooh, ooh Anytime that you want me to
Ooh, ooh Anytime that you need me

Give me all of your sunshine
A spark is all I need
To take away, all of the shadows
Well what more can I say.
Anytime at all
Anytime at all
Anytime at all
