Lyrics Tuesdays #10- I Feel Awesome Because Family.

I took a family vacation recently, and it is amazing how stress-free I am now.  I have a lot of projects, ideas of moving and getting my masters, job hunting, cleaning my cat’s litter box twice a day because they eat a lot.  But what made me calm about all of this on my shoulders, is the fact that I have an amazing family.  And not a lot of people can say that, nor can they say that they were able to relax during a family vacation.

Not to mention, we all listen to the same music.  Mind you, I am the 7th of 42 first cousins!  Insane!  I would post a group photo of us, but for privacy reasons, it looks a lot like this:


times 10.  But we all are different, but when a Neil Young song came up on the stereo, we were all singing.  Queen, Wicked, we were all singing along!  Just amazing to have that connection!

So tonight, I will share the wonderful song originally sung by The Talking Heads, This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody), played by The Lumineers, in honor of my family loving one another, no matter the stresses and strifes, and in the folk-country style that runs in our blood ❤

“This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)”

Home is where I want to be
Pick me up and turn me round
I feel numb – born with a weak heart
I guess I must be having fun
The less we say about it the better
Make it up as we go along
Feet on the ground
Head in the sky
It’s ok I know nothing’s wrong… nothing

Hi yo I got plenty of time
Hi yo you got light in your eyes
And you’re standing here beside me
I love the passing of time
Never for money
Always for love
Cover up and say goodnight… say good night

Home – is where I want to be
But I guess I’m already there
I come home – she lifted up her wings
I guess that this must be the place
I can’t tell one from another
Did I find you, or you find me?
There was a time
Before we were born
If someone asks, this where I’ll be… where I’ll be

Hi yo
We drift in and out
Hi yo
Sing into my mouth
Out of all those kinds of people
You got a face with a view
I’m just an animal looking for a home and,
Share the same space for a minute or two
And you love me till my heart stops
Love me till I’m dead
Eyes that light up, eyes look through you
Cover up the blank spots
Hit me on the head
Ah ooh
