Song for a Time
I love music. All of it. Okay, not country music - it is a little too serious for my sensitive side. But what makes me love a song most of all are the lyrics. Sometimes a phrase within a song, or the entire song itself speaks to a moment in time. It can capture the feeling of loss, it can motivate, soothe and get you out on the dance floor.
A friend of mine reminded me about a song this morning. He suggested that I loved the Budweiser commercial because it contained "my song". A long time ago, when I was just considering my big move, the song Landslide came on the radio. It is an old song, and I have to confess I didn't really like it much until a few lines in the song reached out and hit me in my moment of doubt and captured my thoughts perfectly;
"Well, I've been afraid of changing
'Cause I, I built my life around you
But time makes you bolder..."
So to my friend - thank you for the reminder :)
