Music of the heart...

I'm taking a break today from the butterfly diary cause I can't get something out of head..My dear daughter posted a challenge on her blog here asking people about songs that brought back memories at certain times of their life. Oh I have a list of oldies just like everyone else...a song when I first met my husband, one of when our daughter was little, one for each of our granddaughters when they were born, etc....It's been a week and half now since my husband got a job offer from a company that will hopefully end our 4 yrs of 'robbing Peter to pay Paul' as the saying goes..I heard two songs both by Joshua Radin for the first time that very day he got the offer...They were just so perfect as I listened to the words. Under a Streetlight made me think of all the waiting we've done having faith that God (in the song He's the wind that blows us where we're suppose to go) was working behind the scenes for us and then with Brand New Day, well it's pretty self explanatary. These songs will be forever linked to this part of our lives.

UNDER A STREETLIGHT
I'll wait for something under a streetlight
It won't be long
Because it's dark, it's cold
It's one of those nights
It's one of those nights where
There's something out there
Keeps me alive

But I don't know where to go
So I think I'll sit and stay here a while
Till I figure it out

So let the wind blow us
To wherever it says
We are supposed to go

When you want something but can't name it
It's under a streetlight
It's something you've never seen before
Open the door
It's something you've always been afraid of
It's under a streetlight
And now all you want is more

But don't know where to go
So I think I'll sit and stay here a while
Till I figure it out

So let the wind blow us
To wherever it says
We are supposed to go
Let the wind blow us
To wherever it says
We are supposed to go

I don't mind the wait it's fine
As long as you know
It's the wait that could be the something

I don't know where to go
So I think I'll sit and stay here a while
Till I figure it out

So let the wind blow us
To wherever it says
We are supposed to go
So let the wind blow us
To wherever it says
We are supposed to go
We are supposed to go


BRAND NEW DAY
Some kind of magic
Happens late at night
When the moon smiles down at me
And bathes me in its light.

I fell asleep beneath you
In the tall blades of grass.
When I woke the world was new.
I never had to ask.

It's a brand new day.
The sun is shinning.
It's a brand new day.
For the first time in such a long, long time
I know I'll be okay.

Most kind of stories
Save the best part for last.
And most stories have a hero who finds
You make your past your past.
Yeah, you make your past your past.

It's a brand new day.
The sun is shinning.
It's a brand new day.
For the first time in such a long, long time
I know I'll be okay.

This cycle never ends.
Gotta fall in order to mend.

It's a brand new day.
It's a brand new day.
For the first time in such a long, long time
I know I'll be okay.
