#629 When it feels like the lyrics to the song you’re listening to were written just for you

Maybe a quiet haze drifts in your dorm as you worry about upcoming exams and patchy friendships. Maybe your heart just got flattened by a runaway relationship and the knots in your stomach are twisting and burning. Or maybe you’re trekking cross-country with a backpack and a dream and are suddenly sucker-punched with a jabby stab of loneliness.

When you’re pumped up, pumped down, shaken sideways or rattled around, it’s always comforting to share a moment with a song or lyric that perfectly reflects your mood. Sometimes it seems like they’re singing right to you.

So come on and smile along, nod quietly to the song, and push ahead, plow forward, and soldier right on.


Turn it on and soak it in

  1. I keep telling everyone…oh but they were!
    “Born to Run”, by who else~ my long lost lova’ Bruce Springsteen;)

  2. Tonight there were two songs on the radio in a row that fit the moment absolutely PERFECTLY! It made me smile both times. Then of course I had to sing along! This is probably my favorite.

  3. ….I love this. One time, I went to the beach with my whole family on my Dad’s side. At one point-on the very last day-everybody finally all sat down on our little part of the beach that was empty. An exact minute after everyone sat down, My Own Kind Of Paradise began playing on the radio. The last time the chorus played, the sun set behind the horizon. It was…just simply beautiful.

  4. Is going to be back frequently in order to inspect new posts soon. I simply couldn’t your websites before suggesting that I really loved the usual info a person supply for your webdesign?

  5. You know, in this blog I’m reading, sometimes I feel like the words were written just for me… It’s called 1000 Awesome Things.
    Thanks Neil :)
