Day 55 – Thankful for an Awesome Earworm

ear·worm – ˈi(ə)rˌwərm/ – noun – informal – a catchy song or tune that runs continually through a person’s mind

Last week Wednesday I heard a song for the first time that’s been stuck in my head ever since.  The video is fantastic and there’s an incredible message in it.  Check it out here:

During the end of yoga I can usually get to a fleeting moment of silence and peace in my mind.  This Saturday as I laid with my eyes closed and slowly relaxing all I could hear is this song repeating in my head, and I loved every note of it.

I played it for the boys and they enjoyed it, I’m sure one day they’ll get it.  In the meantime, I’m glad it’s stuck in my head!

Thanks!!!
The Nights – Avicii

Lyrics

Hey, once upon a younger year

When all our shadows disappeared

The animals inside came out to play

Hey, when face to face with all our fears

Learned our lessons through the tears

Made memories we knew would never fade
One day my father—he told me,

“Son, don’t let it slip away”

He took me in his arms, I heard him say,

“When you get older

Your wild life will live for younger days

Think of me if ever you’re afraid.”
He said, “One day you’ll leave this world behind

So live a life you will remember.”

My father told me when I was just a child

These are the nights that never die

My father told me

When thunder clouds start pouring down

Light a fire they can’t put out

Carve your name into those shinning stars

He said, “Go venture far beyond the shores.

Don’t forsake this life of yours.

I’ll guide you home no matter where you are.”
One day my father—he told me,

“Son, don’t let it slip away.”

When I was just a kid I heard him say,

“When you get older

Your wild life will live for younger days

Think of me if ever you’re afraid.”
He said, “One day you’ll leave this world behind

So live a life you will remember.”

My father told me when I was just a child

These are the nights that never die

My father told me

These are the nights that never die

My father told me
