#SLS 6/28/20 – I Melt With You

This week Jim has given us the prompts of Cool/Freeze/Heat/Melt for #SLS. When I was 17 in 1983 a little movie came out starring Nicholas Cage and Deborah Foreman. I loved the movie but there was a particular song that even when I hear it now all these years later makes me tingle because it is a quintessential love song. Below I have included a trailer clip with the song from the movie Valley Girl along with the official music video from Modern English and a remake by Jason Mraz.

Below the videos are the lyrics. That’s what’s in My Rattled Cage, thanks for stopping by!!

Lyrics

Moving forward using all my breath
Making love to you was never second best
I saw the world crashing all around your face
Never really knowing it was always mesh and lace

I’ll stop the world and melt with you
You’ve seen the difference
And it’s getting better all the time
There’s nothing you and I won’t do
I’ll stop the world and melt with you

Trapped in the state of imaginary grace
I made a pilgrimage to save this human race
Never comprehending the race has long gone by

I’ll stop the world and melt with you
You’ve seen the difference
And it’s getting better all the time
There’s nothing you and I won’t do
I’ll stop the world and melt with you

The future’s open wide

I’ll stop the world and melt with you
I’ve seen some changes
But it’s getting better all the time
There’s nothing you and I won’t do
I’ll stop the world and melt with you, yeah

The future’s open wide
Let’s sing along

Hmmm hmmm hmmm
Hmmm hmmm hmmm hmmm
Hmmm hmmm hmmm
Hmmm hmmm hmmm hmmm
(Woah woah woah woah woah)
Woah woah woah
Woah woah woah woah (Pathetic, absolutely pathetic)
Woah woah woah
Woah woah woah woah

I’ll stop the world and melt with you
You’ve seen the difference
And it’s getting better all the time
There’s nothing you and I won’t do
I’ll stop the world and melt with you

I’ll stop the world and melt with you
I’ll stop the world and melt with you
