{These are the days}

Sidenote: I just had to post something aside from my weekly adventures.

You know how sometimes you get overwhelming feeling from just music? Or when a piece of music just really inspires you or gives you chills? Or sometimes a song you hear for the first time really speaks to you or makes you cry? Or even a song you have heard a million times over, but you finally listened to the words and it spoke exactly how you were feeling in that exact moment? All these are the main reasons I am so passionate about music. Well tonight I had one of those feelings. Since I bought tickets to the "Sugarland" concert whenever a song of there's comes on my I-pod I listen to the whole song so I am prepared to sing my heart out at their concert. ANYWAYS... one of their songs "These are the days" came on and it wasn't until the last few lines that I realized this is exactly what I needed to hear. So I replayed it over and listened intently to the lyrics and I was like this is perfect! 

It's written on our palms and
It's written on our hearts
It's written in our songs and
It's written in the stars
Sometimes all we can do
Is stand up tall
When they're standing in line
Just to watch us fall

We can't forget, these are the days
Whoa, don't be afraid
We can't forget, these are the days

Well, we got each other and that's all we need
From here on out it's just you and me
Two hometown hearts up against the world
That don't stand a chance against this boy and girl
We faced 'em down, fought bigger fights
And I know babe we're gonna be alright

repeat chorus

Well, it feels like we're living from pay check to check
And we wake up wondering what might happen next
Yeah, sometimes it feels like we won't make it through
But the hard times pass
Like the good ones do
Baby wrap your fingers and 
Hold on tight
I'll be right here beside you tonight
Baby climb up here
Watch the city glow
Let's make a wish on the fireworks below
We're making moments that we won't forget
And feeling ones that haven't happened yet

repeat chorus

Don't be afraid
We can't forget these are the days

I just feel like life sometimes hits us with things and some days I'm like why me? or Why now? Like today I just registered for school and realized its going to be a longer and harder journey than I thought and I was so upset. Than with all this fertility crap going on, I'm like okay something else we got to get over. But than I heard this song and I was like YA! These are the days and moments I am going to remember forever. Jake and I living the dream. It makes me feel a lot better!


  1. That's a great song :) What's this "fertility crap" you were talking about though? I figured since you posted it on your blog, it was okay to ask.

  2. Yeah no biggie. Jake and I just have been off Birth Control for over a year now and were just going through tests to see if there are any problems.

  3. I'm sorry. It took us 6 months and that was hard. My sister-in-law waited a year also though and they finally are prego, so don't give up. I hope it all works out. You guys would be such great parents :)
