a song a day: day 3.

Day 3.

Just to recap: My pal Beach tagged me to participate in the ‘a song a day challenge’… If you don’t visit son of a beach, you’re missing out on lots of beautiful photography!

The rules.

Post a song a day for five consecutive days
Post the name of the song and video
Post what the lyrics mean to you (optional)
Nominate two different bloggers each day of the challenge

I’m not sure who else to nominate. I know, I’ve only done 2 days… 4 people. But I don’t want to burden anyone. And quite a few of you are already in this challenge. But… if you’re reading this and think it sounds like fun, please jump right in!

One of my two themes for the April A-to-Z challenge is music… so I apologize in advance for the flood of ‘sandra’s music’ coming your way…

Back to You.
This is no accident. Last Friday, I posted a short piece of fiction (the first new ‘fiction friday’ post in weeks). You may remember the title… (or maybe you don’t…) fiction friday 55: back to you.

It’s not the first time a song has inspired a story for me. In fact, it happens all the time. I think music is my most frequent source of material. And this is John Mayer… he’s right up there with Coldplay on the inspiration wall. (There is no actual wall. Other than the one in my head.)

Back to you
It always comes around
Back to you
I tried to forget you
I tried to stay away
But it’s too late

Over you
I’m never over
Over you
Something about you
It’s just the way you move
The way you move me

I’m so good at forgetting
And I quit every game I play
But forgive me, love
I can’t turn and walk away

Back to you
It always comes around
Back to you
I walk with your shadow
I’m sleeping in my bed
With your silhouette

Should have smiled in that picture
If it’s the last that I’ll see of you
It’s the least that you
Could not do

Leave the light on
I’ll never give up on you
Leave the light on
For me too
For me too
For me too

Back to me
I know that it comes
Back to me
Doesn’t it scare you
Your will is not as strong
As it used to be…

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 Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. 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.

    Don’t you wish he’d sing you to sleep at night? Sigh. If only he wasn’t such a ladies man…
