Find Love

Do you ever wake up in the morning with a song ~or as in my case, one line of a song~ going through your head over and over? This week every day it has been the same song. First thing in the morning, every morning, no exception. This is often very annoying or maybe it should tell me something, dream analysis? Not this week, this week I like it and I'll tell you why...

Mike listens to a podcast called All Songs Considered from NPR. To go along with Valentines Day the podcast from last week was all about love songs. The song from inside my head is a love song but not about romance and I have fallen in love with it. Find Love a ballad by Clem Snide is all about finding the things in life that make you happy and sharing them. Listen to it, it's great.

Since I have had the tune running through my head for 3 days now ever since Mike first showed it to me, I have started putting my own life into it. It's kind of fun. Here is my version...what would yours include? (Hopefully the gang at Clem Snide won't mind)

Don't let rainy days slow you down
Get your bike and ride out of town.

Find love then give it all away

Read a book to a 3 year old
Snuggle up when you're feeling cold.

Find love then give it all away

Don't be scared to connect the dots
Dig for gold in the parking lot

Find love then give it all away

Walk on beaches make castles of sand
Dig for clams, make a family band.

Find love then give it all away
Find love then give it all away

You know, I too would wake up in the morning with a song in my head. At first, I thought I was going crazy, you know "loco." Thank goodness it doesn't happen all the time. I'd really go crazy. Anyway,I found out I wasn't the only one. What a relief! LOL!
