gratuitous baby tongue shot. because why not?
It's been fun to revisit some of my favorite series here from the past few years. I'm always partial to the confessional posts, but it's always simply delightful to hear from you in the responses to the You Tell Me posts.
When I asked for post ideas on Facebook, Patricia suggested sharing some of my favorite lines from songs - ones that give me chill bumps or make me smile.
I could talk about music that is meaningful to me for hours and hours, but I won't make you endure all that. Instead, I'll share a few of mine and then you pour yourself a glass/cup/mug of your favorite beverage friend and tell me a few of yours. Fun, yes?
Patty Griffin :: Mother of God
So I'm wearing my footsteps into this floor
One day I won't live here anymore
Someone will wonder who lived here before
And went on their way
As it just so happens, reader Patricia had a Patty Griffin song in her head when she suggested this writing prompt. And that, my friends, is because Patty's music is sheer lyrical MAGIC. I basically love every line from nearly every song of hers.
Those lines from Mother of God, I just love them. Probably because of how I lose my mind over old houses and the story in the floorboards and the whispers in the walls. That whole song, really. Goose bumps every time.
Alanis Morissette :: Head Over Feet
I've never felt this healthy before
I've never wanted something rational
I am aware now
That song came out around the time Kyle and I started dating, and it will always remind me of that sweet, dizzy time. Kyle asked me out after a series of train-wreckery relationships, and very soon after, it was like a fog lifted. And I felt so healthy and non-self-sabotage and content. And that song takes me right back to that moment.
Traditional :: O Holy Night
His law is love, and His gospel is peace.
That one line? I can barely sing it without tearing up. It's all I need to know and tell about why I follow after Jesus.
Alright-y then. What's a favorite song lyric of yours, one that is meaningful in ways either good or bad or crazy? Let's have a sing-a-long in the comments, want to?
