Sunday Morning Song of The Moment


As I am usually short on blogging material on the weekends and now I am bogged down with school work, I have decided to implement a recurring feature on Sundays.
It will highlight a song that has touched me so much that I need to share it. It may be a song I've heard millions of times before or one that I've just discovered. It's hard to say what genre it will be from, as I am all over the place in my musical tastes. But one thing will ring true with all of the songs-to-be-featured on Sundays: they have rocked my world in one way or another.

So, without further ado, here is the first feature for Week One of the Sunday Morning Song of The Moment:

"First Day of My Life" by Bright Eyes


This is the first day of my life
I swear I was born right in the doorway
I went out in the rain suddenly everything changed
They're spreading blankets on the beach


Yours is the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
Now I don't know where I am
I don't know where I've been
But I know where I want to go


And so I thought I'd let you know
That these things take forever
I especially am slow
But I realize that I need you
And I wondered if I could come home


Remember the time you drove all night
Just to meet me in the morning
And I thought it was strange you said everything changed
You felt as if you had just woke up
And you said, "this is the first day of my life
I'm glad I didn't die before I met you
But now I don't care I could go anywhere with you
And I'd probably be happy"


So if you want to be with me
With these things there's no telling
We just have to wait and see
But I'd rather be working for a paycheck
Than waiting to win the lottery
Besides maybe this time is different
I mean I really think you like me

Tabba,

Just got a look at the new design & caught up on what's been going on this past week while I've been away.

You've been busy!!!

Love the new look & the picture is fantastic.

Keep it up (you realise you've raised the bar get again!)

Tabba said...

ravioli - you are so arrogant ;)

Jen - he IS one lucky cat ;)

Hev - SO glad you're back & thanks for the compliments. I'm glad to get feedback on the design! I was wondering how it was going over with my readers. Slackermommy kicks ass....she did a great job putting it together for me. It took me FOREVER to find the pic, but it was worth it, I think....
