song of the day. #22

song of the day | what sandra thinks
Back in 2005 when blink-182 went on hiatus, Tom DeLonge formed Angels & Airwaves. He did go back to blink in 2009, but by 2015, he bailed. I think for good this time. Which is a good thing… to me anyway. Because Angels & Airwaves is a band far superior to blink-182. I can say that because Tom is a close personal friend of mine.

Okay, that’s a big fat lie. I just wish he was. But I stand by my ‘superior band’ statement. I’m not sure what it is I love about this guy. Maybe it’s that I think it’d be great to sit around and get fucked up with him.

I love this song because even though he’s telling us to look on the bright side (which normally would make me want to kick someone in the face), he also understands why sometimes we don’t… or can’t… and he’s been there, too. According to these words, anyway. Plus listen to it… it may be one of the most upbeat songs I love.

swirly
And do you ever feel like you’re alone?
And do you ever wish you’d be unknown?
I can say that I have
I can say that I have
And do you ever feel things here aren’t right?
And do you ever feel the time slip by?
And I can say that I have
And I can say that I have
[…]

And do you ever lay awake at night?
And do you ever tell yourself don’t try?
Don’t try to let yourself down
Don’t try to let yourself down
And do you ever see yourself in love?
And do you ever take a chance my love?
Because you know that I will
Because you know that I will
[…]

So hear this please
And watch as your heart speeds up endlessly
And look for the stars as the sun goes down
Each breath that you take has a thunderous sound
Everything, everything’s magic
Just sit back and hold on but hold on tight
Prepare for the best and the fastest ride
And reach out your hand and I’ll make you mine
Everything, everything’s magic

    I have never heard this song – living under a rock apparently! I like Blink 182. Will watch for what Tom does on his own, now.
