Whoever she is- the maine (live daytrotter 2013)
93 Million Miles - Jason Mraz
40 thousand miles from the Moon, we’ve come a long way to belong here,
To share this view of the night, a glorious night, over the horizon is another bright sky
Oh, my my how beautiful, oh my irrefutable father,
He told me, “Son sometimes it may seem dark, but the absence of the light is a necessary part.
Just know, you’re never alone, you can always come back home”
I don’t think I ever explained this or at least wrote it down. Why this is one of my favorite songs of all time or why I have the lyrics tattooed on my body.
So, the one band my parents loved and listened to when I was little and that really stuck to me was the Beatles. We have their cd’s and they were played all the time, I’m surprised they’re not worn out or broken. There are two songs that I always remember my dad making sure to play and sing, and they’re A Hard Days Night, and Blackbird. Every time I listen to blackbird, I hear him singing it to me. I always have. The only time I don’t here it is when I listen to the cover of it by Evan Rachel Wood, from Across the Universe (a movie my dad would like and probably describe as “sharp”). When I hear this version, I kinda think of it as me singing it back. Idk, it’s weird I know.
Overall it’s just a really important song to me. My mom even says it’s my theme song.
The lyrics to it just mean a lot to me. Especially now that I’m moving forward with my life and going away to college and growing up and all. It says a lot about everything I’ve gone through in my life and everything that has happened.
