And I’ve always lived like this Keeping it comfortable, distance, and up until now I’d sworn to myself that I’m content With loneliness Because none of it was ever worth the risk, but… You, are, the only exception
Hands Down by Dashboard Confessional is such a feel good song – it’s hard not to love.
Here’s my favorite line:
Hands down this is the best day I can ever remember, I’ll always remember the sound of the stereo, the dim of the soft lights, the scent of your hair that you twirled in your fingers and the time on the clock when we realized it’s so late and this walk that we shared together.
Perfection. The last part of the song reminds me of the first kiss I had with Justin, I think that’s why I love it so much 🙂
Today I’m sharing one of my favorite love songs of ALL time.
When Justin and I first started dating, he burned me a copy of all of his Dashboard Confessional CD’s and A Mark, A Mission, A Brand, A Scar was playing on repeat in my CD player. As Lovers Go was my absolute favorite song for about 2 years.
I really could relate to the lyrics – I honestly felt like I had been waiting for Justin all of my life (haha – a whole 18 years). But really, he was exactly the type of person I was looking for and was SO head over heels in love that I was sure I would lose it if we ever broke up.
My favorite line:
And I said “I’ve gotta be honest I’ve been waiting for you all my life.” For so long I thought I was asylum bound, But just seeing you makes me think twice. And being with you here makes me sane, I fear I’ll go crazy if you leave my side. You’ve got wits… you’ve got looks, You’ve got passion but are you brave enough to leave with me tonight?
Listen to it below. It’s a great song and will always be one of my very favorites.
So sweet and true, right?
P.S.. What are you doing to celebrate Valentine’s Day tomorrow? I wanna hear so share it in the comments!
I first heard today’s song sung by Anberlin and was instantly in love with it.
Then I found out that The Smiths sang it originally and I was even more in love with it, because lets be honest.. songs from the early 90’s are awesome.
My favorite line:
And if a double-decker bus crashes in to us To die by your side is such a heavenly way to die And if a ten ton truck kills the both of us To die by your side- well the pleasure, the privilege is mine..
Alright, for all of you Twilight fans out there I decided to feature a song from Breaking Dawn. I couldn’t help but fall in love with Edward and Bella’s wedding – the venue and the dress were stunning.
A Thousand Years by Christina Perri
My favorite line:
But watching you stand alone All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow One step closer
And in the music video for this song, you catch glimpses of the wedding:
I mean come on, you can’t help but love the song, right?
I think my favorite band of all time (or pretty close anyway) is Dashboard Confessional. So it’s no surprise that I am featuring another song by them on Music Monday.
Stolen by Dashboard Confessional
This song is off the album Dusk and Summer, which is the perfect summertime soundtrack. And because it’s snowing and super windy and cold right now, I could use a small reminder of summer. And even though I a married woman, I could stare at Chris Carrabba all day.
I watch you spin around in your highest heels You are the best one, of the best ones We all look like we feel
Can’t you just picture that?
Love the song, love him. Don’t worry, Justin already knows 🙂
I have great love for this song… This was the song that was playing when Justin and I arrived at our reception.
Better Together by Jack Johnson
It’s how I truly feel about my man. I think we are great people on our own, but we really are better together.
Plus, Jack Johnson has a great voice, and the harmonica in this song is glorious.
Our dreams, and they are made out of real things Like a, shoebox of photographs With sepia-toned loving Love is the answer, At least for most of the questions in my heart Like why are we here? And where do we go? And how come it’s so hard? It’s not always easy and Sometimes life can be deceiving I’ll tell you one thing, it’s always better when we’re together
Okay, that’s like, half the song but I really like the lyrics 🙂
