Music Monday - Honey Come Home

honey-come-home.jpg

The Head and The Heart - Honey Come Home Not to get too morbid or anything, but I've been thinking a lot lately about the possibility that I could die alone, never having truly fallen in love. It's a scary thought, which is one of the reasons I think I really love this song. The lyrics, "Just wanna die with the one I love," resonate with me at this stage in my life.

I think that's really at the core of what many of us desire. We have a gaping hole that we just want to be filled before we die.

I hope you enjoy this lovely version of this song.

I've Got This Friend...

We've all been in that position before. We want to tell someone what our true feelings are, but we're too nervous or scared of rejection. So rather than address our issues in the 1st person, we through out the infamous "I've got this friend..." phrase. Everyone knows you're really talking about yourself. But there is just something about being able to express your feelings when you're not directly attached to them that makes them a little easier to share. That's what I love about "I've Got This Friend" by The Civil Wars.

The story of these two cautious lovebirds who yearn for love but have a hard time admitting it really hits home with me. I hope you enjoy it, and pay close attention to the words. My favorite part is the bridge:

"Oh if the right one came, if the right one came along..."

Music Monday #14 - Feel the Love

In an effort to remind others that we are all connected, The Mowgli's are spreading a message of love and unity through music. The California drops of sunshine are on a happiness level all their own, with a fun-loving vibe will make you want to hug complete strangers. So when you have thoughts of doubt, moments of vulnerability, or feelings of loneliness, listen to The Mowgli's for a reminder of how united we all truly are <3 Happy Music Monday!

Well I've been in love with love And the idea of Something binding us together You know that love is strong enough. And I've seen time tell tales About that systematic drug Yeah, that heart that beats as one, It's collectively, unconsciously composed.

I lost my head in San Francisco Waiting for the fog to roll out But I found it in a rain cloud, it was smiling down. Do you feel the love, I feel the love. C'mon, c'mon let's start it up, Let it pour out of your soul.
