Music Monday: One Thing

Welcome to Music Monday! I’ll share a song that means a lot to me and why I am sharing it. This meme is hosted by The Tattooed Book Geek.

One Thing by Finger Eleven

Restless tonight
‘Cause I wasted the light
Between both these times
I drew a really thin line

It’s nothing I planned
And not that I can
But you should be mine
Across that line

If I traded it all, if I gave it all away
For one thing, just for one thing
If I sorted it out, if I knew all about
This one thing wouldn’t that be something

I promise I might
Not walk on by
Maybe next time
But not this time

Even though I know
I don’t want to know
Yeah, I guess I know
I just hate how it sounds

If I traded it all, if I gave it all away
For one thing, just for one thing
If I sorted it out, if I knew all about
This one thing wouldn’t that be something

If I traded it all, if I gave it all away
For one thing, just for one thing
If I sorted it out, if I knew all about
This one thing wouldn’t that be something

Even though I know
I don’t want to know
Yeah, I guess I know
I just hate how it sounds

Even though I know
I don’t want to know
Yeah, I guess I know
I just hate how it sounds

If I traded it all, if I gave it all away
For one thing, just for one thing
If I sorted it out, if I knew all about
This one thing wouldn’t that be something

If I traded it all, if I gave it all away
For one thing, just for one thing
If I sorted it out, if I knew all about
This one thing wouldn’t that be something

If I traded it all, if I gave it all away
For one thing, just for one thing
If I sorted it out, if I knew all about
This one thing wouldn’t that be something

If I traded it all, if I gave it all away
For one thing, just for one thing
If I sorted it out, if I knew all about
This one thing wouldn’t that be something

Reason I’m posting: This song has been stuck in my head for quite awhile now. I’m not sure if many people listen to this song. I find it very beautiful.

Music Monday: It’s You

Welcome to Music Monday! I’ll share a song that means a lot to me and why I am sharing it. This meme is hosted by The Tattooed Book Geek.

It’s You by Michelle Branch

If tomorrow never comes
I would want just one thing
I would tell it to the stars and the sun
I would write it for the world to see
And it’s you-ou-oooou
The light changes when you’re in the room
Oh it’s you-ou-oooou
Oh it’s you
If tomorrow never comes
I would want just one wish
To kiss your quiet mouth
And trace the steps with my finger tips
And it’s you-ou-ooou
The light changes when you’re in the room
Oh it’s you-ou-oooou
Oh it’s you
Oh it’s you-ou
Oh it’s you-ou-oooou
Oh it’s you
Oh oh it’s you
Oh it’s you-ou

Reason I’m Posting: The day after Valentine’s got me still in a love filled haze. I love this song. One day I want it to be in the list of wedding songs I dance to. Granted I ever get married of course.

Music Monday: Tomorrow

Welcome to Music Monday! I’ll share a song that means a lot to me and why I am sharing it. This meme is hosted by The Tattooed Book Geek.

Tomorrow by Avril Lavigne

And I wanna believe you,
When you tell me that it’ll be ok,
Ya I try to believe you,
But I dont
When you say that its gonna be,
It always turns out to be a different way,
I try to believe you,
Not today, today, today, today, today…
I dont know how Ill feel,
Tomorrow(tomorrow), tomorrow(tomorrow)
I dont know what to say,
Tomorrow(tomorrow), tomorrow(tomorrow)
Is a different day
Its always been up to you,
Its turning around,
Its up to me,
Im gonna do what I have to do,
Just dont
Gimme a little time,
Leave me alone a little while,
Maybe its not too late,
Not today, today, today, today, today…Hey yeah yeah, hey yeah yeah, and I know Im not ready,
Hey yeah yeah, hey yeah yeah, maybe tomorrow
Tomorrow it may change

Reason I’m Posting: This has been weighing heavily on my mind lately. I don’t know what to make of it.

Music Monday: Flames

Welcome to Music Monday! I’ll share a song that means a lot to me and why I am sharing it. This meme is hosted by The Tattooed Book Geek.

Flames by Mod Sun Featuring Avril Lavigne

I still burn for you
Like the sun burns in the sky
I still burn for you
I still burn for you
My whole life I’ve been on fire
I still burn for you

Up in flames, up in flames
Light a match and put it to my name
Up in flames, I still burn for you

Every time I think I had enough of this
I get more addicted, yeah, I’m so obsessed
Talk about you all the time, I am your narcissist
Well, if we burn it down you’ll be my arsonist

I still burn for you
Like the sun burns in the sky
I still burn for you (burn for you, burn for you)
I still burn for you
My whole life I’ve been on fire
I still burn for you

I’m so strung out on you I might relapse (I might relapse)
I’m dying for a taste, please, God, don’t let this last (please, God, don’t let this last)
And you’ve been burning all of the leaves on palm trees
I’m left with nothing more than ashes
Falling to the ground like snowflakes
I almost wish we never happened (we never happened)I still burn for you
Like the sun burns in the sky
I still burn for you (burn for you)
I still burn for you
My whole life I’ve been on fire
I still burn for you (burn for you) Up in flames, up in flames
Light a match and put it to my name
Up in flames, I still burn for you

Up in flames, up in flames
Light a match and put it to my name
Up in flames, I still burn for you

Up in flames, up in flames
Light a match and put it to my name
Up in flames, I still burn for you

Reason I’m Posting: I’m a huge Avril Lavigne fan. It’s not really a secret. I’ve been a fan of hers since her very first album. Anyway. I found this on YouTube and I was shocked. I just knew it had to be this week’s pick!

Reason I’m Posting: My girlfriend actually introduced me to this song today. She requested it so to speak. It’s the first time I’ve ever heard the song. I really like it. I’ll have to add it to my ever growing collection of songs that I listen to.

Music Mondays: Gardenia

Welcome to Music Monday! I’ll share a song that means a lot to me and why I am sharing it. This meme is hosted by The Tattooed Book Geek.

Gardenia- Mandy Moore

Well, I put so much thought into getting ready
Now I know that was the best part
It’s so easy to get caught up in what I’m regretting
Forget what I got from a wounded heart

I’m the one who likes gardenia
I’m the one who likes to make love on the floor
I don’t want to hang up the phone yet
It’s been good
Getting to know me more

I’ve been seeing all my old friends in the city
Walking alone in central park
Doing all the things that I’ve neglected
Traded ’em all in
To be in your arms

I’m the one who likes gardenia
I’m the one who likes to make love on the floor
I don’t want to hang up the phone yet
It’s been good
Getting to know me more

Well, I hear my own voice
Sounds so silly
Keep on telling my story all around
Everything I lost seems so different
Well, this is how everybody gets found

I’m the one who likes gardenia
I’m the one who likes to make love on the floor
I don’t want to hang up the phone yet
It’s been good
Getting to know me more

Reason I’m posting: Because this song gets me through most everything. This song has been played often and on repeat during my worst days when I feel alone. When I feel like nobody is there and nobody will ever be. I also would love to learn to play the piano just to do a cover of this song.

Music Monday: Hush Hush

Welcome to Music Monday! I’ll share a song that means a lot to me and why I am sharing it. This meme is hosted by The Tattooed Book Geek.

Hush Hush by Avril Lavigne

Hush, hush
Shh
Hush, hushI didnt mean to kiss you
You didnt mean to fall in love
I never meant to hurt you
We never meant to mean as much
Hush, hush nowI wanted to keep you
Forever next to me
You know that I still do
And all wanted was still belive
Hush, hush nowSo go on, live your life
So go on, and say goodbye
So many questions but I don’t ask why (But I don’t ask why)
So this time I won’t even try
Hush, hush now, mmm
Hush, hush nowWhen I try to forget you
I just keep on remembering
What we had, it was so true
And somehow we lost everyting
Hush, hush now (Hush, hush now)So go on, live your life
So go on, say goodbye
So many questions but I don’t ask why (But I don’t ask why)
So go on, live your life
So go on, and say goodbye
So many questions but I don’t ask why (But I don’t ask why)
Maybe some day but not tonight
Hush, hush nowDon’t, don’t, don’t you ever say a word, word
Of what you thought that you heard, heard
Don’t you ever tell a soul, what you know
I tried to hide, but I still believe
We, that we were always meant to be, be
And I could never let you go, no
Hush, hush nowSo go on, live your life
So go on, say goodbye
So many questions but I don’t ask why (But I don’t ask why)
No
So go on, live your life
So go on, say goodbye
So many questions but I don’t ask why (But I don’t ask why)
Maybe some day but not tonight
Hush, hush nowMmm
Hush, hush now
Mmm, mmm
Hush, hush

Reason I’m Posting: This song really makes me think about people who were important in my life, but not in the way we were trying to be. Because we chose the wrong path, we both got hurt in the end. This is also a really beautiful song.

Music Monday: Falling Fast

Welcome to Music Monday! I’ll share a song that means a lot to me and why I am sharing it. This meme is hosted by The Tattooed Book Geek.

Falling Fast by Avril Lavinge

I woke up and saw the sun today
You came by without a warning
You put a smile on my face
I want that for every morningWhat is it I’m feeling?
‘Cause I can’t let it go
If seeing is believing
Then I already knowI’m falling fast
I hope this lasts
I’m falling hard for you
I say “let’s take a chance”
Take it while we can
I know you feel it tooI’m falling fast
I’m falling fastIt doesn’t matter what we do
You make everything seem brighter
I never knew I needed you
Like a sad song needs a sea of lightersWhat is it I’m feeling?
‘Cause I can’t let it go
If seeing is believing
I already knowI’m falling fast
‘Cause I hope this lasts
‘Cause I’m falling hard for you
I say “let’s take a chance”
Take it while we can
‘Cause I know you feel it tooI’m falling fast
I’m falling fastI hope you know
I hope it lasts
I’m falling hard, I’m falling fast
We can go, no holding backI’m falling fast
I hope this lasts
I’m falling hard for you
I say “let’s take a chance”
Take it while we can
I know you feel it tooI’m falling fast
I’m falling fastSource: LyricFind

Reason I’m Posting: This book has been heavily on my mind lately. I wish I could go into more detail, but I’m not ready yet. It’s also a very beautiful song.
