So I’m sitting in my room finishing up a birthday/grad present for my friend, rocking out to Yellowcard. [Been on a YC binge since yesterday. In the mood since I’m seeing them at Warped next month. Whoo.]
It’s the new[er] album, When You’re Through Thinking, Say Yes. I’ve loved the song With You Around since I first got the CD, and listening to it now had me thinking: My relationship is really awesome. Like…really awesome. Like ‘why is this so awesome I didn’t do anything to deserve anything this awesome’.
Do you remember when I said you were my only one
We were running underneath the California sun
Well now I look at you and you’re still more than I can take
You’re like a slow song starting to accelerate.
And all my life, I looked for you
For arms that I could fall into.
All I can think about is you and me driving
With a Saves The Day record on
We were singing till our voices were gone
And I was falling hard
You were barely hanging on.
And now I wanna chase forever down
With you around
And that’s just how it is. Simple, happy, awesome. Pretty much always getting better as opposed to dying out. Though, I suppose, that’s why people say you should be with your best friend instead of just someone random.
Though, I thought the same thing the other day listening toEmeli Sandé’s ‘Next To Me’.
So, I feel like sharing: A Few Songs That Remind Me of My Relationship in One Way or Another and Therefore Make Me Happy (But Might Make You Jealous/Depressed if You Aren’t in the Same Boat. Be Happy Anyway.)
Also contributing to this good mood: I got three identical dresses in different colors for a good price from Ross. And they’re awesome. Go Ross.
