Music Monday: Good Day.

I’ve had a lot of really good days lately. Been putting effort into seeing the positives, and the small, beautiful moments. The more I’ve been training my mind, the less effort it takes to positive.

In honor of the universal goal of having a good day, here’s one of my all time favorite songs. I never sat back to reflect on the lyrics until tonight, and it made me love this song even more. There are different themes that I’m interpreting that all correlate with each other, which is what makes this such a magical track. There’s the freeing feeling of being vulnerable, ‘just like they should’. And it rolls you into being an innocent child with no cares, playing with friends. Then it’s like ‘but, seriously, everyone is scared of growing old’. And then the song basically tells you ‘YOLO’. So here’s to smiling because we liked like.

 

 

I think that I would like
To invite everyone I’ve known
Dead and alive
To a street where we can be
Finally free
Well, they would come in droves
Wearing their hearts on their sleeves, but oh
How good it felt to have them worn
Just like they should
And everybody here wants to know
Did everybody say what a good day that it was
For everybody here who said what a good day it was?
Did they smile ’cause they like it, 
Did they smile ’cause they like it, 
Did they? Whoa
Suddenly, we all got young
Running circles around ourselves
Just for fun
And oh, how good it felt
To be young and loved
And feel it in our bones
And everybody here wants to know
Did everybody say what a good day that it was
For everybody here who said what a good day it was?
Did they smile ’cause they like it, 
Did they smile ’cause they like it, 
Did they? Whoa.
We go there when we’re in trouble
We got old and old age made us humble
You and I are alone
That it felt like this, we were never told
That it felt like this we were never told
And it scares us bad so we’ll have to be bold
But there’s still one thing that we need to know.
Did everybody say what a good day that it was
For everybody here who said what a good day it was?
Did they smile ’cause they like it, 
Did they smile ’cause they like it, 
Did they? Whoa
