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,

1.16.15 | Goodnight – Cher Lloyd

Standout Lyric/sStay with me, don’t disappear / To tell the truth, I need you here / I’m afraid, can barely breathe / I need your words to comfort me / Say goodnight, would you say goodnight?

First things FIRST! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!!!
As much as I wanted to give you a ROCKIN song for your birthday, I couldn’t betray my feelings about this song and what it does to me every time I hear it..
Two or three months ago, I watched a interview that Cher Lloyd did (now I can’t find it, of course) about this song on her album “Sorry I’m Late”.
Even though this song sounds like something has happened to her father, he is still alive. Her father has cancer though, which she said she worries about every single day. Who wouldn’t? She also talked about how whether or not its because of cancer, her dad will eventually leave her. 😦 Every single night before they turn out their lights, no matter where they are in the world, they text each other “Goodnight.” 
I am very blessed to say that my dad is in tip top shape. But I still worry about him all the time. I think of how much he’s done and how much he still does for the family, and I just want to be able to take care of him the same way that he’s taken care of me, which seems pretty impossible. My dad and I talk on the phone about 2-3 times a week, which is not enough! Just like my mom is one of my best friends so is my dad. I can tell them anything and they will not have any judgement, just advice and a shoulder to cry on.
There are not enough words to say what I think about my father and how amazing he is. How he really influences a lot of the music I listen to, how loud I like that music, and the deeper meaning of most music. But he also has taught me right from wrong, how to be a hard worker, and to be loyal to all that are loyal to me.
I love you so much Dad and I hope you have an awesome day!

Yours for the listening,
Kelly
