Now Playing

I know I had a music-related post on Friday, but there are so many exciting things to write about in my life currently…….

I’m kind of loving my “now” playlist right now. It does everything with me – driving, doing work, chilling, running. These are the albums that are top on that list right now and just make me feel good.

Mumford & Sons : Babel   Toe-tapping, feel-good tunes. They’re just awesome. Period. Keeping an eye out for tour release dates. Favorite song: impossible to pick one.

 

 

 

 

 

Erin McCarley : My Stadium Electric This chic rocks. The music is fun and I love her voice. Favorite song: There’s No Holding You Down

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Lumineers : [self-titled]  Love their sound and lyrics. Favorite song: Big Parade

 

 

 

 

 

 

Grace Potter & the Nocturnals : This chic really rocks. All her albums are amazing. And she is one of the best live shows I’ve ever seen. My favorite album is still the 2007 This Is Somewhere. I thought I was going crazy when they re-released a hit on a later album and slightly changed the lyrics, but I like the original best. Favorite song on that album: Stop the Bus

 

 

 

 

Taylor Swift : Red I know. Guilty pleasure. I already explained on Friday.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Civil WarsBarton Hollow  I don’t think I will ever get tired of this album. Every song is unique and beautiful. Favorite song: Dance Me To The End of Love

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are many more albums on this particular playlist, these are my favs and the ones that don’t rotate off quite as fast as some others. If you don’t know some of these artists and/or albums I definitely recommend checking them out!

Mumford & Sons

Right now, I could listen to this over and over….and over….

After the Storm

And after the storm,
I run and run as the rains come
And I look up, I look up,
on my knees and out of luck,
I look up.

Night has always pushed up day
You must know life to see decay
But I won’t rot, I won’t rot
Not this mind and not this heart,
I won’t rot.

And I took you by the hand
And we stood tall,
And remembered our own land,
What we lived for.

And there will come a time, you’ll see, with no more
tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your
fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

And now I cling to what I knew
I saw exactly what was true
But oh no more.
That’s why I hold,
That’s why I hold with all I have.
That’s why I hold.

I will die alone and be left there.
Well I guess I’ll just go home,
Oh God knows where.
Because death is just so full and man so small.
Well I’m scared of what’s behind and what’s before.

And there will come a time, you’ll see, with no more
tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your
fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

And there will come a time, you’ll see, with no more
tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your
fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

Awake My Soul (from Sigh No More)

How fickle my heart
and how woozy my eyes
I struggle to find
any truth in your lies
And now my heart stumbles
on things I don’t know
My weakness I feel
I must finally show

Lend me your hand
and we’ll conquer them all
But lend me your heart
and I’ll just let you fall
Lend me your eyes
I can change what you see
But your soul you must keep,
totally free

Awake my soul, awake my soul

How fickle my heart
and how woozy my eyes
I struggle to find
any truth in your lies
And now my heart stumbles
on things I don’t know
My weakness I feel
I must finally show

In these bodies we will live,
in these bodies we will die
Where you invest your love,
you invest your life
In these bodies we will live,
in these bodies we will die
Where you invest your love,
you invest your life

Awake my soul, awake my soul
Awake my soul
For you were made to meet your maker

Awake my soul, awake my soul
Awake my soul
For you were made to meet your maker
You were made to meet your maker
