3.2.15 | Stolen Dance – Milky Chance

Stand-out Lyric/s – I hope they didn’t get your mind / Your heart is too strong, anyway / We need to fetch back the time / They have stolen from us

A friend of mine at work seems to always have this song stuck in his head and like anyone who loves a good tune, he sings it out loud a lot. So naturally, it then gets stuck in my head and I start singing/dancing. It is really one of the most catchy songs I’ve heard this year. Even after writing the lyrics down, I had to turn on the song and groove along.
Songs that are upbeat and catchy, but still hold a deeper meaning in them that is in some ways almost depressing are always very interesting to me. Any time that I have ever tried to write something, I’ve been very direct in what I was feeling. If I was writing something sad, Id put it to a sad tune, if it was happy, it would go with a happy tune. I guess thats why none of my ideas have gone anywhere but the paper they were written on. But still, it’s hard for me to disguise my feelings, which gets me in trouble a lot. I act on everything that I feel, even if it seems temporary. I’ve been trying to work on this but sometimes it feels like if I don’t get it out, it’ll eat me alive.
The lyrics that I posted above are relevant to my life in the fact that I want people to know what is truly important in their lives. I want them to prioritize based on their feelings, not on what is going to get them up the ladder of success or gain them the most amount of money. If they wanna spend time with people, I hope they get to do that, and I hope this world hasn’t stolen their mind that is capable and willing to see through all the wrong stuff that this world teaches us.

Yours for the listening,


2.23.15 | Come Sail Away – Styx

Stand-out Lyric/s – I look to the sea reflections in the waves spark my memory / Some happy some sad / I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had / We live happily forever so the story goes / But somehow we missed out on that pot of gold / But we’ll try best that we can to carry on

I had a complete turn around morning at work today. I ended up closing for a friend and making some pretty decent money. When work was over, I ran home because my night plans involved fun.
My fiancé and I were going to meet my friend, Liz, at a theatre where she was hosting a screening of “The Princess Bride”. She dressed up as the Dread Pirate Roberts and got the crowd into an inconceivable mood! I’ll be honest, I’ve never seen the movie in its entirety. I knew it was one of my fiancé’s favorite movies so i told Liz that we would tag along. It was super fun and I loved the movie and was disappointed I did not see it in my childhood! It was a really cool experience to see older people excited to see it again and react to the movie, and to see a younger generation maybe seeing it for the first time with their parents and thinking it was “so cool!”.
On the way home, we listened to our classic rock station and this song came on. I do think of Eric Cartman from South Park when I hear this song, I won’t lie, but it made me immediately start singing and doing strange hand gestures. Also, John-Mark was really into to so when he gets into the same music as I do, it makes every part of my heart happy. We jammed out to the station all the way home and even some other oldies but goodies when we got home.
It was a great night and I hope to recreate it with other movies in the near future. 🙂

Yours for the listening,
