song of the day. #4

song of the day.

This song should be an apology because I can’t believe I still haven’t finished my already-a-week-late secret admirer post…

I know you’re all amazing and don’t totally hate me for it. I know you understand. But I’m so frustrated! I was so happy with my writing earlier today… and then I picked up the kids from school… and my writing crashed. And then it was back… and then… ugh! It’s messed up… one minute I’m typing wildly and the next I’ve got nothing! It’s driving me mad.

And of course, it being Friday, I had to take a break for Hawaii Five-0. Maybe the extended viewing of my dreamguy (who spent lots of time wet in this episode – yum) will help.

the song…

This song is from 2009. My kids were still in preschool… and we’d already established their great taste in music. (Yes, this was an important part of their early childhood development.) My daughter, 2 years old at the time, used to sing part of this all the time — the part created from recordings of the band’s real fans. Genius. (You’ll know which part when you hear it.)

Oh — if you’re not familiar with the band – 30 Seconds to Mars – Yes, that is Jared Leto who you may know from… him being Jared Leto.

Into your eyes
Hopeless and taken
We stole our new lives
Through blood and name
In defense of our dreams…

We were the kings and queens of promise
We were the victims of ourselves……

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Hawaii where she could learn to surf. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
