25 Days, 25 Songs (Day 7) A Song That Reminds You of the Past Summer

DSCN1480The past summer . . . the past summer? . . . well . . . oh heck, I can’t remember what I had for dinner last Wednesday.  How am I suppose to remember anything about last summer?

I think the most memorable thing about last summer is that it was insignificant.  Thank goodness for blog archives.  I checked back to last summer and as it turns out, there was nothing particularly memorable about it.  I went to a few weddings.  We went to the dog park.  I gardened.

The years used to be marked by significant events; babies, first years of school, graduations.  Now they slip through my fingers like rain through a gutter.  Each much like the one before it.  As life slows down, the speed at which the years pass increases and each day blurs into the next.  It’s a reminder to make each day its own event.  A good deed, a kind word, a loving hug.  Maybe ice cream or a Hershey’s pie.

Ordinary Life
by Fingers Eleven

I…
So what if I don’t know the next place where my mind supposed to go
No direction, no drive, on paper I am barely alive
No answer cause
No call
There’s nothing going on at all
I know when I sing this song
The words might not be too strong

The world might not sing along
But who knows maybe they might
If I get the melody just right
If I get it right

[Chorus]
I am just singin’ my ordinary life
I just wish the world would sing with me sometimes
I am just singin’ my ordinary life
I just wish the world would sing with me sometimes

Who knows what I might find in the back woods of my mind
Not answering your call, just lost in thought that’s all
I know when I sing a song, the words might not be too strong

The world might not sing along
But who knows maybe they might
If I get the melody just right

[Chorus]
I am just singin’ my ordinary life
I just wish the world would sing with me sometimes
Yeah I am just singin’ my ordinary life
I just wish the world would sing with me sometimes
Sometimes

[Chorus]
Cause I am just singin’ my ordinary life
I just wish the world would sing with me sometimes
I am just singin’ my ordinary life
I just wish the world would sing with me sometimes
Sometime
Sometime
