Music Monday

 

A beautiful original piece by my daughter…

 

 

It’s been several years since she’s done anything with her music, so listening to this makes me feel a bit melancholy.  But some beautiful things have happened in our lives since then – my precious granddaughter for one!  So that touch of melancholy is also mingled with deep gratitude…

 

Thanks for listening, have a beautiful Monday!

Music Monday – Summer Breeze

 

Sheltered from the blazing sun

I lay daydreaming

under a lush canopy of green

soothed by the caress of the warm summer breeze

🎶”Summer breeze makes me feel fine…”🎶

 

 

This song is filled with nostalgia for me, as it reminds me of the summers of my childhood.  Funny how the phrase “summer breeze” brings it to mind all these years later…

 

May you have a warm, soothing, summer breeze blowing your way on this Monday…

Music Monday – Hold Back the River

 

Another scene from a bike ride that brings song lyrics to mind.  And a certain someone…

Hold back the river…

Music Monday – Yellow

 

I came across a massive field of dandelions on my bike ride the other day and just had to hop off my bicycle to try and capture a piece of the magical scene with my phone, it was like looking out at a sea of pure sunshine.  While I was looking out at it I heard a line from Coldplay’s song “Yellow” playing in my head…

“And it was all yellow”

 

Except when against the blue of the sky…

How can anyone hate dandelions?  They’re like bright little stars shining in a field of green and “Look how they shine for you.”

 

I like the sound of the studio version of this song better, but listening to any music in concert is always fun, and this one is “all yellow”  😉

 

May bright things shine for you this week…

Music Monday – Heartbeat

 

 

Heartbeat

I’ve seen the sun disappear before my eyes
Just above the highest tide, but falling to the ocean line
And all I see is smoke, enough to make me choke
The world feels broken down

Counting the lines, the years are screaming louder now
And all the trees start falling down, the brightest lights are burning out
So I will run though fire to reach the other side
And turn this life around

And when the moment’s dead and gone
With every star I’m wishing on
With every right and every wrong
The lonely nights that take us all
For all the stones I’ve ever thrown
Another break against the bone
Close my eyes I’m not alone
And let the heartbeat take me home

If there is love raining down on everyone
We can break away and run like we did when we were young
And we could make believe this is all we need
To live for only here and now

So if the moment’s dead and gone
With every star we’re wishing on
With every right and every wrong
The endless nights we sang along
For all the stones we’ve never thrown
We can save these broken bones
Close our eyes, we’re not alone
And let the heartbeat take us home

Music Monday – Something Wild

I’m still feeling the call of the wild, and absolutely loving this song right now…

 

Something Wild

 

“You had your maps drawn

you had other plans

to hang your hopes on

every road they led you down felt so wrong

so you found another way

 

You’ve got a big heart

the way you see the world

it got you this far 

you may have some bruises

and a few scars

but you know you’re gonna be okay

 

Even though you’re scared

you’re stronger than you know

 

If you’re lost out where the lights are blinding

caught , and all the stars are hiding

that’s when something wild calls you home

if you face the fear that keeps you frozen

chase the sky into the ocean

that’s when something wild calls you home

 

Sometimes the past can

make the ground beneath you feel like quicksand

you don’t have to worry

reach for my hand

and I know you’re gonna be okay

you’re gonna be okay

 

Even if you’re scared

you’re stronger than you know

 

If you’re lost out where the lights are blinding

caught, and all the stars are hiding

that’s when something wild calls you home

If you face the fear that keeps you frozen

chase the sky into the ocean

that’s when something wild calls you home…”

 

~ Andrew McMahon

 

 

Such a great video for this song with the two children out adventuring, and I love the violin, but what I love most is the lyrics.  The words that really speak to me right now are…

 

“If you face the fear that keeps you frozen

chase the sky into the ocean

that’s when something wild calls you home

 

Even if you’re scared

you’re stronger than you know”

 

Whatever fears you may be facing, I’m wishing you strength and hope on this Monday, and as always…
