“Love is always bestowed as a gift – freely, willingly, and without expectation… We don’t love to be loved; we love to love.” -Leo Buscaglia
Good morning/almost afternoon everyone!
I was listening to Fire in the water this morning by Feist. (Heard it from Breaking Dawn part 2. Hey! don’t judge me lol) I started smiling because I could remember the first time that I heard a love song. It was from a 2002 Nicholas Sparks movie called “A Walk To Remember.” The song was called, “Someday We’ll Know” by Mandy Moore and Jonathan Moore from Switch foot. (I think) The next song that I’d heard In that movie was “It’s Gonna Be Love” by Mandy Moore. (From that point on I think I went a little Mandy Moore crazy). The point I’m trying to make Is from that moment on I was secretly longing for the one person who fit the love song I loved the most. A couple of years later I saw “Bend It Like Beckham,” One of my favorite movies of all time, and at the end of this movie, when Jess is about to kiss her coach/secret boyfriend, they play a song that I still listen to today called, “Inner Smile” by Texas. Here are some of the lyrics:
“Cuz you make me feel (yeah)
You make me feel wild (yeah)
You touch my inner smile (yeah)
You got me in the mood (yeah)
So come on and make your move (yeah)
And free me….”
These may seem like your typical lyrics, but they are powerful and amazing (especially during that scene)
As I got older and started to listening to other types of music; One song that never escaped my memories was inner smile. I guess In a way I was and still am waiting for that someone who makes me feel wild. (In a good way) I hope that whoever reads this and thinks their crazy to wait for a love like in one of your favorite songs or movies, I want them to know they are not alone.
That we may be crazy but at least we have some optimism left in this cynical world. I hope that whoever is reading this post laughs out loud and realizes it doesn’t matter what people think. I hope that whoever reads this is happy they found a new song. If you’ve got nothing that I’ve talked about in this post then at least you got a couple of new love songs to check out.
