Moments of Emotion

You know that feeling…That feeling when you’re listening to a song, whether it be a favourite or an ear filler, and then the singer croons a certain line or lyric, that makes you just close your eyes because your mind is suddenly flooded with memories of a certain time in your life, whether past or present. Yes, that feeling…well, that happens to me a lot. I sometimes listen to a song simply because it evokes memories and thoughts of a person, a place, a time or an adventure…

I therefore decided to share these moments with the blogosphere. These specific words encased in melodies that make me smile, laugh, feel like crying and everything in between. In no particular order, here are some of my favourite lyrics. Enjoy..

The smartest thing I’ve ever learned, is that I don’t have all the answers” ~ Emphasis by Sleeping At Last

Don’t run, just stop holding your tongue. Maybe there’s a way out of the cage where you live. Maybe one of these days you can let the light in. Show me how big your brave is” ~ Brave by Sara Bareilles

When all you wanted was to be wanted, wish you could go back and tell yourself what you know now” ~ Fifteen by Taylor Swift

I’ll come around if you ever wanna be in love. I’m not waiting, but I’m willing if you call me up. If you ever wanna be in love, I’ll come around” ~ If You Ever Want To Be In Love by James Bay

So come on let it go, just let it b. Why don’t you be you, and I’ll be me. Everything’s that’s broke, leave it to the breeze. Why don’t you be you, and I’ll be me” ~ Let It Go by James Bay

I used to recognize myself. It’s funny how reflections change” ~ Let It Go by James Bay

Too many shadows in my room, too many hours in this midnight, too many corners in my mind, so much to do to set my heart right.” ~ In Repair by John Mayer

Home – the world tried to break me, I found a road to take me, Home – there ain’t nothing but a blue sky now. After all of my running, I’m finally coming… Home” ~ Coming Home by Gwyneth Paltrow

I know a girl. She puts the color inside of my world. But she’s just like a maze, where all of the walls all continually change. And I’ve done all I can, to stand on her steps with my heart in my hands. Now I’m starting to see, maybe it’s got nothing to do with me
Fathers, be good to your daughters, daughters will love like you do. Girls become lovers who turn into mothers, so mothers, be good to your daughters too.” ~ Daughters by John Mayer

Something always brings me back to you. It never takes too long.” ~ Gravity by Sara Bareilles

What’s the greatest chapter in your book? Are there pages where it hurts to look? What’s the one regret you can’t work through? You got it baby, mine would be you” ~ Mine Would Be You by Blake Shelton

Riding in the car to work, and I’m trying to ignore the hurt. So I turned on the radio, Stupid song made me think of you. I listened to it for minute, but then I changed it. I’m getting a little bit stronger, just a little bit stronger.” ~ A Little Bit Stronger by Sara Evans/Leighton Meester

There’s one thing I want to say, so I’ll be brave. You were what I wanted, I gave what I gave, I’m not sorry I met you, I’m not sorry it’s over, I’m not sorry there’s nothing to say” ~ Your Ex-Lover Is Dead by the Stars

Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart” ~ Thinking Out loud by Ed Sheeran

In this life, we all know, friends may come, and they may go. Through the years I know I will stay. And in the end I know that we’ll find, love so beautiful and divine” ~ Stay With You by John Legend


I could literally go on forever – I am a little bit of a music junkie. But I’m sure you’ll agree, that at one point or another, these words sang over a beat or a melody were all that you had when you were down in the dumps. Or when you felt so high that you had to sing at the top of the hills. Either way, they expressed and evoked emotion in you….like music does in all of us. Because music is pretty much universal.

Till next time,


PS. Please feel free to share your favourite lyrics in the comment section! I would love to read what music inspires you. Plus, I’m always scoping out for new music to add to my library 😉
