Three day lyrical challenge – day 1

My sincerest thanks to Ana, the amazing blogger of Mom Life with Chiari for treating me to this much welcomed and delightful challenge.  I can’t help but be smitten with her blog.  Her positive outlook, her grit to push through chronic pain and the challenges of Chiari and most of all, her love for life, are all too precious to miss.  If you haven’t had a chance to check out her blog, do visit soon.

The Rules Are Simple:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Share one of your favorite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.
  3. Nominate three other bloggers each day.

The Song/Lyrics

The first one that I am sharing is “Sober Up” by AJR, featuring Rivers Cuomo.  It ranks pretty high on my current song chart.  Perfect for the summer, it has an upbeat tempo, a catchy tune and the wholesome goodness of cello strumming to the heartbeat.  To me, the song is about remembering first love, the longing for childlike innocence and the yearning for an uncomplicated life.  It has been a while since I have been this excited about a song and I hope you enjoy it too.

Here it is, “Sober Up” by AJR (feat Rivers Cuomo).

 

Lyrics

Hello, hello
I’m not where I’m supposed to be
I hope that you’re missing me
Cause it makes me feel young
Hello, hello
Last time that I saw your face
Was recess in second grade
And it made me feel young

Won’t you help me sober up
Growing up it made me numb
And I wanna feel something again
Won’t you help me sober up
All the big kids they got drunk
And I wanna feel something again
Won’t you help me feel something again
How’s it go again?

Goodbye, goodbye
I said to my bestest buds
We said that we’d keep in touch
And we did our best
All my new friends
We smile at party time
But soon we forgot to smile
At anything else

Won’t you help me sober up
Growing up it made me numb
And I wanna feel something again
Won’t you help me sober up
All the big kids they got drunk
And I wanna feel something again
Won’t you help me feel something again
How’s it go again?
How’s it go again?

My favorite color is you
You’re vibrating out my frequency
My favorite color is you
You keep me young and that’s how I wanna be
My favorite color is you
You’re vibrating out my frequency
My favorite color is you
You keep me young and that’s how I wanna be

Hello, hello
I’m not where I’m supposed to be
I hope that you’re missing me
Cause it makes me feel young
Hello, hello
Last time that I saw your face
Was recess in second grade
And it made me feel young
And I wanna feel something again
I just wanna feel something again
(How’s it go again?)

Won’t you help me sober up
Growing up it made me numb
And I want to feel something again
(My favorite color is you)
Won’t you help me sober up
All the big kids they got drunk
And I wanna feel something again
(My favorite color is you)
Won’t you help me feel something again
(My favorite color is you)
Can I finally feel something again?

How’s it go again?
