Too Many Songs ...Livin' Out Loud
Have you ever had so much inside you that you couldn’t really zero in on that one particular thing, allowing all the others to fall by the wayside, to let that one out? That’s the way it is for me this morning. Instead of one song playing on a loop in my mind, there’s several playing at the same time. I’m trying to pick one, but they’re all so good… I’m feeling every single one of them … at once.
“You got me goin’ ‘round, goin’ ‘round in circles. Yes you do, baby. On and on, every time I see you I get nervous… whisper in my ear tonight, you know how to make me feel perfect. Put your lips up next to mine, ‘cause you know just how to work it. ‘Cause baby, you-u-u-u, you make me feel alright, yes you do, baby. I want you take over… I want you to take over me …when the lights go down.” You - Nathaniel
“I’m a leader, I’m a winner, and I’m cleaner … ‘cause I’m awesome. I don’t need you, ‘cause I’m neato, and I beat you … ‘cause I’m awesome.” Dollyrots – Because I’m Awesome
“Well, I’m not paralyzed, but I seem to be struck by you. I want to make you move because you’re standing still. If your body matches what your eyes can do, you’ll probably move right through me on my way to you.” Paralyzer – Finger Eleven
“To make you want me I can fabricate the truth. I’ll give you easy, it’ll keep me destitute. You hang me up on the line, hang me out to dry, but you got nothing to lose. You’ve got the story all made up inside your head. You write me out of it and use your words instead. You hold me just out of reach, keep me pounding the beat, take all the shore you can give. You want me to change – change – change. You want me to change. You want me to change – change – change. You want me to change.” Change – Churchill
“I need you, darling, come on set the tone. If you feel me falling, won’t you let me know. Oh, oh, oh…wooohoo. If you love me, come on get involved. Feel it rushing through you from head to toe. Oh, oh, oh… wooohoo. Sing! Louder! Sing!” Sing – Ed Sheeran
“Hold on. Hold on. Don’t be scared. You’ll never change what’s been and gone. May your smile, shine on. Don’t be scared. Your destiny may keep you warm. ‘Cause all of the stars are fading away, just try not to worry, you’ll see them someday. Just take what you need. Now be on your way and stop crying your heart out.” Stop Crying Your Heart Out – Oasis.
“Girl, I just want to get inside, just get inside your sexy mind. Oh, I just want to cross the line, the line, Baby. Before it all goes crazy tonight, I just want to say, you’re beautiful, beautiful. You’re rock-n-roll, rock-n-roll. You’re beautiful, beautiful. You’re beautiful. With you I lost all my control, the minute you walked in the door. But I’ve always got my eyes on the prize, the prize, Lady. But before it all goes crazy tonight, I just want to say, you’re beautiful, beautiful. You’re rock-n-roll, rock-n-roll. You’re beautiful, beautiful. You’re beautiful.” – You’re Beautiful - Nathaniel
“1-2-3-1-2-3-drink. 1-2-3-1-2-3- drink. 1-2-3-1-2-3-drink. Throw ‘em back till all I know is gone . I’m gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier. I’m gonna live like tomorrow doesn’t exist, like it doesn’t exist. I’m gonna fly like a bird for the night, feel my tears as they dry. I’m gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier. I’m just holding on for tonight.” Chandelier – Sia
“Hey, I want to get better. You know I was lonely till I saw your face. I want to get better, better, better, I want to get better. I want you to know I was broken till I wanted to change. I want to get better, better, better, better. “ I Want to Get Better – Bleachers
“So I write, write, write all the things I didn’t miss. And despite, despite, despite …my conclusion is – nobody wants you, nobody wants you, like I do. So, I write all the reasons I could quit. Change my mind, mind, mind …cause my conclusion is – nobody wants you, nobody wants you like I do. Excuses, abuses, you use me up. My patience, can’t take it, I’ve had enough. It must be meant to be, when you wake up from your break up, now you see, it must be how you look when you woke up right here next to me.” Nobody Wants U – Dollyrots
“You don’t have to fall in line. Life is such a crazy ride. Live Louder. Uh. Live Louder. Uh, Whoo. Put your rules back on the shelf. Let your freak out, be yourself. Live Louder. Uh. Live Louder. Yeah! Ow… Get up and dance like you dance when there’s no one around. Sing your song the way you sing when you’re in the shower. Lose yourself, act the fool, redefine a new kind of cool. Live Louder. Louder. Don’t be careful, don’t think twice. Just let your heart speak it’s mind. One foot forward, make your move. No one does it quite like you. Live Louder. Let it go… let yourself go. “ Live Louder – Nathaniel
So, what the hell do I do with all that??? I’m shaking my head and laughing right now… but I’m going to end this post, get up, dance… and live a little louder.
Till next time,
