Song and Lyric of the Week

Like A Star
“Just like a star across my sky,
Just like an angel off the page,
You have appeared to my life,
Feel like I'll never be the same,
Just like a song in my heart,
Just like oil on my hands,
Oh.. I do love you,

Still I wonder why it is,
I don't argue like this,
With anyone but you,
We do it all the time,
Blowing out my mind,

You've got this look i can't describe,
You make me feel like I'm alive,
When everything else is au fait,
Without a doubt you're on my side,
Heaven has been away too long,
Can't find the words to write this song,
Oh...
Your love,

Still I wonder why it is,
I don't argue like this,
With anyone but you,
We do it all the time,
Blowing out my mind,

I have come to understand,
The way it is,
It's not a secret anymore,
'cause we've been through that before,
From tonight I know that you're the only one,
I've been confused and in the dark,
Now I understand,

I wonder why it is,
I don't argue like this,
With anyone but you,
I wonder why it is,
I wont let my guard down,
For anyone but you
We do it all the time,
Blowing out my mind,

Just like a star across my sky,
Just like an angel off the page,
You have appeared to my life,
Feel like I'll never be the same,
Just like a song in my heart,
Just like oil on my hands”

Music Memory of the Week

I felt like sharing a happy song today. Truth be told I lean towards the deep, dark, aching songs in general.

Yesterday was one of those days that made me feel lighter. Alicia's post reminded me that I have been wanting to watch Amelie again for a few weeks. So I did. Every single detail of this film makes me happy…the narrative…the colors…the story…the photobooths…the way she changes lives…I even cherish the moments when she is sad. When watching I want to crawl inside that world and never come out.

After I watched it, I went out for a drive and the song 'Like A Star' came on. It helped the bliss linger and I had a so-melancholy-and-pleased-at-once-that-I-cried moment right there in the car. It was as if I really WAS inside the film.

Geez, I am such a girl sometimes…

oh WOW. we are cut from the same cloth, L. we really really are. someone sent me a mix a couple of months ago with some of corrine bailey rae's music on it. dug it all but have been most drawn to this song, though. I sing it all the time, I love to sing it, I love to listen to it. it's my current repeat-play tune, I'm obsessed. sososososo good. (like oil on my hands)
