Stone hearts...ya, I need one sometimes...don't you?


...a meme where you match photos to song lyrics

SONG title: STONE HEARTS by Cher
Listen to the song at this link

I ask the river for a sign

In a dream, we go on together
How long is love supposed to shine
In a dream, diamonds are forever
But you and I, hurt together, hurt alone
Don't you sometimes
Wish your heart was a heart of stone

Mercy, mercy, wish your heart was a heart of stone
With a heart of stone, you'll be well protected
Don't you sometimes
Wish your heart was made of stone

PHOTO CREDIT: River - Nueces River near 1-37 LaBonte park [where the fresh water ends and salt water from the bay begins...supposedly. For me it's far far from the 'delta' and that would be where I'd say it ends/begins; what do I know?]
Rock photos are two small stones I turned over while cleaning out the landscaping rock in the back yard some weeks ago, and the song came to mind because of the 'heart shapes' in the stones.

  3. Nice photos! They do go right along with the led me to thoughts having a heart of stone and then how a river can even wear down rocks and...see, I go on these tangents every so often and, this time, you inspired it. Now my head hurts. LOL

  7. Love the song and all of your photos.
    You do find some very interesting things to go along with the songs.

  8. Leave it to you to find stones with heart shapes in them! lol Fabulous!! I've always enjoyed Cher's music and this song is no exception. I remember how much I loved watching Sonny & Cher on tv when they had their I'm showing my age:-)

    That picture I had on my Easter post was found on the internet. Isn't it adorable with the faerie sized church and little bunnies all around?! I'm tempted to create something similar in my faerie garden, once I can get started working on it. This is the 4th day it's been pouring rain so everything is pretty soaked. Wish I could send some to you!! xoxo

  9. This is so creative!

  10. I think it's pretty awesome that turning over rocks inspired such a post....I really enjoyed it!

    I actually downloaded the song 'Beyond the sea" for my post, but there was an error, so I gave it up. Maybe I should just do what you did - link to the song.
