My boy, he ain’t the one that I saw coming
And some have said his heart’s too hot to hold
And it takes a little time
But you should see him when he shines
Cause you never wanna let that feeling go

Wake.Me.Up:Aloe Blacc


I have loved this song since the first time I heard it. (the Avicii version) I have listened to it a million times and every time I crank the radio up and jam out! I do love Aloe Blacc‘s original verison much more but its not the version that plays on the radio.  Take a listen – Enjoy!


Wish that I could stay forever this young
Not afraid to close my eyes
Life’s a game made for everyone
And love is the prize


I have a big problem with lyrics – I rarely remember or know the correct words.  BUT I sing along always.

I’d like to say I free-style.

This is going to an entry that will evolve – as I find out the real words.

Jay Z and Alicia Key’s song, “Empire State of Mind” … it does not say

“…with green tomatoes


Of Monster and Men, “Little Talks“……. never does it say

“….shit filled caviar


Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, “Can’t Hold Us“….doesn’t have a local version

“Milwaukee is here”


30 Days of Thankfulness : 17

Day 17: thankful for Pandora

Pandora, I’m so thankful for Pandora – Helps me survive through my work week… and introduces me to great new songs! This is an amazing song that I heard this weekend. If someone is getting married and needs a wedding song. This should be it!  I wish I heard it 6 months ago.

I have been listening to it on repeat.

I’ll never stop trying
I’ll never stop watching as you leave
I’ll never stop losing my breath
Every time I see you looking back at me
I’ll never stop holding your hand
I’ll never stop opening your door
I’ll never stop choosing you babe
I’ll never get used to you

Day 12:  thankful for music

I’m thankful for music. On my way to work – flipping through the stations, a great song came on. As soon as this song came on – it woke me up, got me singing, and changed the whole start to my day.  Music does so many things! It’s fun, relaxing, relieves stress, calms you down, makes you happy, makes you alive, makes memories, reminds you of memories, allows you to cry, allows you to dance, allows you to sing, and it’s free.
