Songs about life.

I saw this on Pinterest the other day, and I love it. 

I have songs that every single time I listen to them, I cry. And songs that make me smile from ear to ear every time they play. So for today, I thought I would "dedicate" some of my favorite songs to the people that cause these emotions. 


I don't know where I'd be
Without you here with me
Life with you makes perfect sense
You're my best friend

As cheesy as it sounds, he really is my best friend. I talk to him every day without fail and I tell him everything. He may not always have the best advice on girly matters, but he's there to listen. 

You are my heart, every breath I breathe
I'm safe in your arms, you rescue me.
When I'm weak, you're strong
If you were gone I don't know where I'd be
You were made for me

And again, cheesy, but this is completely true. We started dating during the hardest year of my life. Any sane person would have run as fast as he could in the other direction once he figured out what was going on in my life/with my family. But he didn't. And I will be forever grateful because I never would have made it. 

Mom and Dad

You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'cause you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

This will play during my father-daughter dance at my wedding.


I’ve cussed, I’ve prayed, I’ve said goodbye
Shook my fist and asked God why
These days when I’m missing you this much
I drive your truck
I roll every window down
And I burn up
Every back road in this town

The first time I heard this, I was driving back to Young Harris to visit my best friend. I cried so hard I almost drove off the road a few times. This is my brother. He will never talk about his feelings but if you pay close enough attention, he'll show you how he feels. And this video is exactly what he did to deal with certain things in our lives.

Kristin, Sam, Alyssa

So let’s raise a toast
‘Cause I found someone to carry me home
We are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

Weird video.. But this was our theme song to life last year. There have been many a Voxer sent between us screeching this song and it was played before every single outing.

Here's to last call when we didn't care, holding' our shots up in the air
A bunch of reckless boys, man I swear, it's a wonder we survived
To the trucks that drove us home, the secrets we never told
And all the talks on old dirt roads that somehow changed our lives
Here's to the nights we don't remember
Here's to the nights we don't remember and the friends we won't forget

Obviously, we are girls. But the idea is still the same. There are many a night that we're a little hazy on the details and have to fill each other in but that's what friends are for, right??


We bout to throw dem bows
We bout to swang dem thangs
There's about to be a what? Girlfight!

This may seem reallllyyyy weird. Senior year we made a CD for the summer and it was all "girl power" type songs because we were both anti-boys at that point. This was one of the songs on there and we never knew all of the words so we awkwardly mumbled half of it.

After of all of the darkness and sadness
Soon comes happiness
If I surround my self with positive things
I'll gain prosperity

Again with that whole "girl power" theme. We also had the whole part where they harmonize a bunch of "ohhhh's" down perfectly. We played it every time we got into the car. Sorry we're so cool. 


It sure left it's mark on us, we sure left our mark on it
We let the world know we were here, with everything we did
We laid a lot of memories down, like tattoos on this town
Like tattoos on this town
Everywhere, it's where we are
It gets me right, in my heart

Not much explanation needed. I love this town and it will always hold a special place in my heart.

Headed down south to the land of the pines
I'm thumbin' my way into North Caroline
Starin' up the road
And pray to God I see headlights

Basically the Boone theme song. You will hear this at every single bar. And every single person will be singing along. And every single person will shout  "JOHNSON CITY TENNESEEEEEEEEE".

So there you have it. Some of my favorite songs and why they're my favorite songs. I'm sure you all have some songs that make you think of someone or something. 

I'd love to hear about them!
