all i can do is hope that someone, somewhere, listens to music like this, thinks of me, and smiles.
i really hope and pray that i make someone very happy. i'm keeping my fingers crossed that i succeed to make myself memorable. i hope someone is thinking of me when Bigcitydreams comes on.
i love how music can bring you back to something. i remember laying in my friends bed, eating sour patch kids when Please Don't (remix) by Intruder Alert! came on. We were watching a Vh1 show on Christofer Drew, discussing how much we loved him and laughing at her spazzy dogs. And now every time i hear that song, i remember exactly how i felt and exactly how those sour patch kids tasted. I remember smiling to myself and thinking, I've found my best friend.
I remember listening to, Awakening by Switchfoot on the last day of 7th grade. I remember dancing around the cafeteria with my friend and laughing uncontrollably when a teacher told me to settle down. I remember that i wasn't happy about school being over, i was happy i made it to the end of school. I was ecstatic that i was alive. I was thankful that i made it through such a terrible year. I felt lucky that my heart was beating.
I remember hearing Thunder Road by Bruce Springsteen on the radio. about 4 years ago. i was night fishing with my father. he had the truck parked on the beach with the radio turned up, while i baited our hooks and he untangled a reel. he sang every word to this song. then it seemed like nothing special. but looking back, it makes me cry. it was a time i felt so happy. it was when i could go to bed at night and not be worried. i could laugh and not care who heard me. it was when everything was candied and boys had cooties. and thats exactly how i feel when bruce says "Show a little faith, there's magic in the night."
