Music and I have a long history. I used to want to be a professional singer (as y’all probably know.) But have you ever heard lyrics, and you just fall in love with them? So much in love you could listen to that one part of the same song until you die?
I have–and the following ones are some of my favorites.
‘Is there anybody out there, waiting for me?’ Lost and Found, Ellie Goulding.
‘When she was just a girl, she expected the world, but it flew away from her reach, so she ran away in her sleep, and dreamed of paradise.’ Paradise, Coldplay
‘Someday when I’m awfully old and the world is cold, I will feel a glow just thinking of you.’ The Way You Look Tonight, Frank Sinatra
‘When the world comes in they come to build a wall between us, you know they won’t win.’ Don’t Dream It’s Over, Crowded House
‘Momma said, you can’t hurry love, no you just have to wait. She said, love don’t come easy, it’s a game of give and take.’ You Can’t Hurry Love, The Supremes/Phil Collins.
‘Slow down you crazy child, you’re so ambitious for a juvenile. But tell me if you’re so smart, then why are you so afraid.’ Vienna, Billy Joel.
‘I’ve been sleepless at night, cause I don’t know how I feel. I’ve been waiting on you…just to say something real.’ Let It All Go, Birdy/Rhodes.
‘Cause she wears short skirts, I wear t-shirts. She’s cheer captain and I’m on the bleachers, dreaming about the day when you wake up and find what you’ve been looking for has been here the whole time.’ You Belong With Me, Taylor Swift
‘We fall in love till it hurts or bleeds or fades in time.’ State of Grace, Taylor Swift.
‘Scared of my own image, scared of my own immaturity, scared of my own ceiling, scared I’ll die of uncertainty.’ Doubt, Twenty-One Pilots.
‘We had some good times didn’t we? We wore our hearts out on our sleeves, but this is not the end…I’ll see your face again.’ Walking In The Wind, One Direction.
