Defending the silver lining…

hp_0307-bwI’ve started a bit of a routine.  I proof all night so I can play all day…with my boys.  I don’t get much sleep, but who needs sleep these days?  Right?  Okay, so I might be a little bit tired.  I can handle it…afterall, what do I have to complain about.  Life is good.

I know I’ve said it before, but I’ve fallen in love with the music of John Mayer.  I’m not sure why I’m just now discovering him (I knew who he was, but never really listened to his music)…maybe I’ve lived in a bubble for the past few years…who knows.  BUT, now that I’ve listened, I’m inspired.

As I was proofing the night away this week, a song poked it’s way into my head via the cool headphones I was wearing (80’s style…outside of my ears – I hate the ones that go in.  They give me a headache!).  I recently purchased an album on iTunes but apparently hadn’t listened all the way through because I was hearing a song for the first time.  I stopped what I was doing to listen – I didn’t want to miss any of it by being distracted!  It’s not like I had work to do or anything.  Afterward, I had to Google it to read the lyrics.

I was inspired.  I was smiling.  I love music that does that…

I shared this song with everyone on Facebook instantly.  I had to.  It was the right thing to do – I’m pretty sure I sent it to EVERY friend, which is probably WAY too many.  Now, I’m sharing it with you.  Take a look…

and after you listen to it once, listen again and again.  Then go buy it… you’ll feel all bubbly and happy inside.  Guaranteed!

AND be sure to read the lyrics below.

How can you argue with a song like that?  In a time when everyone seems so pessimistic…it takes courage to be believe in the positive.

The Heart of Life by John Mayer

I hate to see you cry
Lying there in that position
There’s things you need to hear
So turn off your tears and listen

Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No, it won’t all go the way, it should
But I know the heart of life is good

You know it’s nothing new
Bad news never had good timing
Then the circle of your friends
Will defend the silver lining

Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No, it won’t all go the way, it should
But I know the heart of life is good

Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
Fear is a friend who’s misunderstood
But I know the heart of life is good

I know it’s good

I hope your Tuesday is filled to the brim with happiness, smiles, and lots of sunshine.  I know mine will be!
