Today’s Top 5 Music Obsessions are full of the belief and love that I am feeling, and the hope that things will get better. That love is what matters. And, that this start of our future is something we can embrace together. That this enormous love I feel is at least a little bit enough. I’m never going to start trying, even if I’m hurting so much right now. I’m never going to stop believing in us.
Top 5 Music Obsessions – July 26, 2018
1. “(Just Like) Starting Over” by John Lennon and Yoko Ono
“It’s been too long since we took the time,
no-one’s to blame,
I know time flies so quickly.
But, when I see you, darling,
it’s like we both are falling in love again.
It’ll be just like starting over.”
This is that moment. That new start moment. The start of the rest of our lives together. What we’ve wanted since almost the start of our meeting, and falling in love. You are the love of my life.
2. “Motion Pictures (For Carrie)” by Neil Young
“I’d rather start all over again.
Well, all those headlines,
they just bore me now.
I’m deep inside myself,
but I’ll get out somehow.
And I’ll stand before you.
And I’ll bring a smile to your eyes.”
I’m not ever going to give up. I hope someday to bring that smile back to your eyes. The one I used to see every night.
3. “In My Life” by The Beatles
“In my life,
I love you more.”
4. “Angel Dream (No. 4)” by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
I floated away.
Across an ocean,
I dreamed her name.
I followed an angel down through the gates.
I can only thank God it was not too late.”
It took years to find you. It took years for you to find me. I hope we don’t let this go.
5. “That’s How Strong My Love Is” by Otis Redding
“I’ll be the weeping willow drowning in my tears.
And you can go swimming when you’re here.
And I’ll be the rainbow after the tears are gone.
Wrap you in my colors and keep you warm.
That’s how strong my love is, darling.”
My love for you grows every day. I hope somehow you can feel that, even on the hardest, darkest days.
