Music Monday: Existentialism on Prom Night

Today is the first edition of Music Monday! 

Every Monday I am going to feature a song that has amazing lyrics, and while it may not be mainstream, has the potential to be a great song for your wedding. 

I’m going to kick it off with the song that my hubby and I used as our first dance.

It’s a song from our early days, and I have the best memories of listening to this song with him:

Existentialism on Prom Night by Straylight Run

Great name, huh? 

But really, this song is amazing. The video for it isn’t my favorite, but the lyrics are exceptional, and I think you’ll like it 🙂

 


 

when the sun came up
we were sleeping in
sunk inside our blankets
sprawled across the bed
and we were dreaming

there are moments when i know it
and the world revolves around us
and we’re keeping it
keeping it all going
this delicate balance
vulnerable
all knowing

sing like you think no one’s listening
you would kill for this
just a little bit
just a little bit
you would

sing like you think no one’s listening
you would kill for this
just a little bit
just a little bit
you would, you would

so, sing me something soft
sad and delicate
or loud and out of key
sing me anything
we’re glad for what we’ve got
done with what we’ve lost
our whole lives laid out right in front of us 

sing like you think no one’s listening
you would kill for this
just a little bit
just a little bit
you would

sing like you think no one’s listening
you would kill for this
just a little bit
just a little bit
you would, you would…

sing me something soft
sad and delicate
or loud and out of key
sing me anything…

 


 

Amazing, right? It’s about being yourself and being together, and it’s perfection. 

You can download it here. I think you should.

What do you think?
