Well what I'm getting at is, along with the fascination of my life's soundtrack, I've also turned into a lyric lover. I love finding songs that artists have written that fit my current mood, stage, or chapter in life. So, in light of my new blog, I thought I would share what I am currently listening to on the beloved iPod.
"Fix You" - Coldplay
"Halo" - Beyonce
"Hometown Glory" - ADELE
"You Belong With Me" - Taylor Swift
"Come a Little Closer" - Dierks Bentley
"You and Me" - Dave Matthews Band
"Never Say Never" - The Fray
"If You're Wondering if I You To ( I Want You To)" - Weezer
"It Happens" - Sugarland
It is so refreshing to find a song that has all the words you have been struggling to find.
It is also, comforting to know that someone "gets" that I-am-doing-everything-in-my-power-not-to-fall-apart feeling.
And yes, it is encouraging to know that you are not alone.
So when I find myself excited about good news, down on my luck, or frustrated with chores, AND all by myself - I turn to the MANY friends I have on my iPod. NO - it doesn't replace a hug, laugh, or shoulder to cry on, but in a pinch - it helps.
This thing called the music industry isn't a billion dollar one for nothing...
