Such an amazing live performance

It’s been a while since I’ve heard a good song. Afire Love, by Ed Sheeran, from his upcoming album ‘x’ (multiply).

According to Wiki, this song was written in for his grandfather, who has been suffering from Alzheimer’s disease for the past 20 years, and who recently passed away. 

Things were all good yesterday
And then the devil took your memory
And if you fell to your death today
I hope that heaven is your resting place
I heard the doctors put your chest in pain
But then that could’ve been the medicine
And now you’re lying in the bed again
Either way I’ll cry with the rest of them

And my father told me, son
It’s not his fault he doesn’t know your face
And you’re not the only one
Although my grandma used to say
That he used to say

Darling, hold me in your arms the way you did last night
And we’ll lie in sight for a little while, he wrote
I could look into your eyes until the sun comes up
And we’re wrapped in light, in life, in love
Put your open lips on mine and slowly let them shut
For they’re designed to be together, oh
With your body next to mine our hearts will beat as one
And we’re set alight, we’re afire in love

Things were all good yesterday
But then the devil took your breath away
And now we’re left here in the pain
Black suit, black tie, standing in the rain
And now my family is one again
Stapled together with the strangers and a friend
Came to my mind, I should paint it with a pen
Six years old, I remember when

My father told me, son
It’s not his fault he doesn’t know your face
And you’re not the only one
Although my grandma used to say
He used to say

Darling, hold me in your arms the way you did last night
And we’ll lie in sight for a little while, he wrote
I could look into your eyes until the sun comes up
And we’re wrapped in light, in life, in love
Put your open lips on mine and slowly let them shut
For they’re designed to be together, oh
With your body next to mine our hearts will beat as one
And we’re set alight, we’re afire in love

To the love we love to love we love [x3]

And my father and all of my family rise from their seats to sing hallelujah
And my mother and all of my family rise from their seats to sing hallelujah
And my brother and all of my family rise from their seats to sing hallelujah
(And all of my brothers and my sisters, yeah)
And my father and all of my family rise from their seats to sing hallelujah

To the love we love to love we love [x3)

Best Day of My Life - American Authors

Feel good song.

Such an eventful day.

Made new friends and strengthened old friendships.

Sarah invited me two days ago to “jam” with her, Butch and Blessie.
I obliged one day later. We spent the latter part of the afternoon singing songs from the top of our heads, from Sar’s compilation of guitar tablatures and Butch and Ian’s playlists. Some of my favorites included :

-This Side by Nickel Creek
- Lego House by Ed Sheeran
- The Remedy by Jason Mraz
- Banana Pancakes by Jack Johnson
- Domino by Jessie J
- Absolutely (Story of a Girl) by Nine Days
- This Love by Maroon 5
- Fast Car by Tracy Chapman

Among others…

After which Ian treated us to Kenny Roger’s! And we played truth or truth!

Other blessings for the day include enrolling myself, finding out I won’t have to make-up for IM or Surgery, and fixing a personal problem with a friend.

What!?

To more “jamming” sessions! ( referably not in public hehe)

Grateful! Wooohooo!

Classic by MKTO. 

High school vibes. So nostalgic. Thanks to Aimee for sharing this! 

Baby you’re so classic. 

All of Me - John Legend

My head’s underwater but I’m breathing fire.

Learned about Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis and Approach to MSK and Articular disorders. I guess this counts as a blessing. Haha.

My mother said my father also got me a watch. Hooray

But what made me more excited, just a few minutes ago, was accidentally tweaking with the GarageBand on the iPad. I figured out how to superimpose tracks! Haha!

Haven’t jumped on the 100daysofhappiness bandwagon yet, but if I had, this would definitely be there.

Such a good feel good song.

Burn - Ellie Goulding

Game ot Thrones Theme - Sungha Jung

Wow!
