3.3.15 | Stay the Night – Zedd / Hayley Williams

Stand-out Lyric/sI am a fire, you’re gasoline / Come pour yourself all over me / We’ll let this place go down in flames only one more time

First off, I’ll start with I’m in love with Hayley Williams from Paramore. Always have been, always will. I believe her voice will always sound amazing, no matter her age. I’ve been listening to her since the beginning and anything she does will make me happy. Enough of me sounding like a stalker.
When I first heard this song, my fiancé and I were kinda on the rocks at the moment. We were still talking to each other every day but not technically “dating” again yet.
I remember hearing this song and feeling this way every time I got to see him. I always thought it was going to be the last time that we spent with each other and that was so scary to me but I was also thankful that I even got another time with him. I tried to keep my emotions at bay when I was with him, and tried to think in the back of my head that we were just friends at the moment, but it was so hard because of the chemistry we had with one another. When I ask him about that time in his life, he tells me that he still loved me and never stopped but we needed to be apart so that both of us could grow and be our own person without one another and it was very true. Looking back for myself, I would never want to go back to that, but I’d be lying if I said it didn’t help. We are stronger and more in love then ever and I can’t imagine our love being what it is without that time apart.

Yours for the listening,


2.22.15 | B.o.B – So Good

Stand-out Lyric/s – I see us on a beach down in Mexico / You can put your feet up / Be my señorita / We ain’t gotta rush / Just take it slow / You’ll be in the high life / Soaking up the sunlight / Anything you want, it’s yours / I’ll have you living life like you should / You say you never had it so good

This morning was a waste of my time at work. I was really down about my job and my “career” when I left the building that day.
I have worked so many Sundays (and in the restaurant business, that’s not necessarily a good thing) and have not made much of anything. Today, I left with 20$ in my pocket. Now, I know, not everyday is going to be a million dollar day (more like 100$ day) but I do expect to always have a good shift, especially when I remain positive, even after working plenty of awful Sunday shifts.
When I got home, I saw my fiancé and immediately got a bit happier. I started to think how selfish I was thinking  on the way home. That I “deserve” more then what I was given. To be quite honest, I don’t deserve 100$ every day. I should be estatic with my 20$ bill and be lucky I have a job and a place to make a living for me and my family. A job that supports the roof over my head, the food on the table, and a blanket to wrap me up in to keep warm. I should be thankful for all of that, yet such small things consume my mind and trick it into thinking I don’t have enough.
I know this song isn’t exactly about being thankful for everything you have, but it is an uplifting song that rephrases “You say you never had it so good.” I have it extremely well and really have never had a down and out time in my life. Of course, there has been times when I was broke, when I was upset, and when I “thought” I was having a bad day. In a bigger picture frame though, I have life so good. So good that for me to complain is absurd. So good that when I’m with the people I love, nothing else matters.

Yours for the listening,

2.15.15 | Love Me Like You Do – Ellie Goulding

Stand-out Lyric/sYeah, I’ll let you set the pace / Cause I’m not thinking straight / My head spinning around I can’t see clear no more / What are you waiting for?

I heard this song a few times on the radio but it didn’t catch my attention until today. I think because my head is still filled with clouds and my stomach still with butterflies from getting a ring from my man.
I can literally say that I have never felt more loved then when he looks at me or touches me. Everything he does, is for God and for me, and I could not be more thankful. I know sometimes I get on him about going out more but I just want us to both take on this crazy world together and try new things together. Even if he is the biggest homebody in the world, I’m so glad that I can come home to him. And that he’ll be there.
Also, I’ve recently become obsessed with Ellie Goulding. I used to really hate her voice but the more I listen to it, the more I see how unique and cool it is. There are certain songs of hers that I still can’t really listen to because they annoy me, but this one is definitely not one. It will hold a special place in my heart for a very long time, because it was released around the same time that good things happened to me. 🙂

Yours for the listening,
