OPENMIC WEEK 75: MEMORIES BY MAROON 5

▶️ Watch on 3Speak


Hello good people of Hive, here is my entry to the openmic week 75 with the song Memories sang by maroon 5. The title of this week entry is Dignified Maturity, but truth be told, I didnt know which song to play in relation to the title, but somehow, memories by maroon 5 kept ringing in my head and I decided to use it as an entry.

LYRICS OF THE SONG

Here's to the ones that we got
Cheers to the wish you were here, but you're not
'Cause the drinks bring back all the memories
Of everything we've been through
Toast to the ones here today
Toast to the ones that we lost on the way
'Cause the drinks bring back all the memories
And the memories bring back, memories bring back you

There's a time that I remember, when I did not know no pain
When I believed in forever, and everything would stay the same
Now my heart feel like December when somebody say your name
'Cause I can't reach out to call you, but I know I will one day, yeah

Everybody hurts sometimes
Everybody hurts someday, ayy-ayy
But everything gon' be alright
Go and raise a glass and say, ayy

Here's to the ones that we got
Cheers to the wish you were here, but you're not
'Cause the drinks bring back all the memories
Of everything we've been through
Toast to the ones here today
Toast to the ones that we lost on the way
'Cause the drinks bring back all the memories
And the memories bring back, memories bring back you

Doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo
Memories bring back, memories bring back you

There's a time that I remember when I never felt so lost
When I felt all of the hatred was too powerful to stop (Ooh, yeah)
Now my heart feel like an ember and it's lighting up the dark
I'll carry these torches for ya that you know I'll never drop, yeah

Everybody hurts sometimes
Everybody hurts someday, ayy-ayy
But everything gon' be alright
Go and raise a glass and say, ayy

Here's to the ones that we got (Oh-oh)
Cheers to the wish you were here, but you're not
'Cause the drinks bring back all the memories
Of everything we've been through (No, no)
Toast to the ones here today (Ayy)
Toast to the ones that we lost on the way
'Cause the drinks bring back all the memories (Ayy)
And the memories bring back, memories bring back you

Doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo
Memories bring back, memories bring back you
Doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo (Ooh, yeah)
Memories bring back, memories bring back you

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, no, no
Memories bring back, memories bring back you

HOW CAN I RELATE THE TITLE "DIGNIFIED MATURITY" TO THIS SONG

The term "Dignified" means having or showing a composed or serious manner that is worthy of respect according to Google, while Maturity to my understanding is the way one responds to occurring situations regardless of age factor. It can also be the level of experiences a person have encountered to attain a certain stage.

Looking deep into the lyrics of this song, there is quite a display of maturity and respect in the action going within the song. So let's analyze the lyrics.


Cheers to the wish you were here, but you're not
'Cause the drinks bring back all the memories
Of everything we've been through
Toast to the ones here today
Toast to the ones that we lost on the way
'Cause the drinks bring back all the memories
And the memories bring back, memories bring back you


In the lyrics above, the writer shows some maturity by giving respect to those who were not present and to those who made it. we can see it clearly in "cheers to the wish you were here, but you're not and toast to the ones here today".

We can also see some sense of maturity displayed in the these sessions of the song lyrics below.


There's a time that I remember, when I did not know no pain
When I believed in forever, and everything would stay the same
Now my heart feel like December when somebody say your name
'Cause I can't reach out to call you, but I know I will one day, yeah

Everybody hurts sometimes
Everybody hurts someday, ayy-ayy
But everything gon' be alright
Go and raise a glass and say, ayy


At the first stance above, the writer had an experience of pain, and reacted in a dignified matured way by saying "Everybodoy hurts sometimes, everybody hurts someday, but everything is going to be alright, just raise a glass and say ayy.

There are other parts where maturity is being displayed by the writer above. If you sight it, feel free to share and comment what you see.

One could feel the effect of the revuberation of those strings in and on the ears, its tasty, beautiful and relaxing, it feels like making love to the ocean. Woooow. Take a bow man. That was totally sumptuous. Loved the free style at the end. You go surely play for my wedding. Beautiful one.

Omo, don't know what's wrong with @tipu, I'm guessing it'll eventually drop by. I enjoyed every bit of this one, felt like listening to a better version of the original song.

Wow I love this song, you needed to see me singing to the tone you were playing.... It was so much fun and I love your facial expression while you play.

And you explained the connection between the song and dignified maturity very well, nice one.

Can't wait to see you play in reality 😬🤭

Absolutely enjoyed your participation!! Singing along with your guitar playing, even that I am not a singer, hehe, loved the vibe you brought with this song. I remember one of the weeks here in open Mic, the topic was Memories, well, there was a nice amount of this song in different interpretations. Now you bring back those memories to me. SMILE @starstrings01 and thank you for your presence now in the community, your engagement and your music! 😇
