"Killing Me Softly"

My best friend sent me a link to a journal, and one of the entries had these lyrics that caught my eye. I laughed as I read them, probably because they rang all too familiar with my life. Have you ever heard music and thought, wow, Killing Me Softly much? I do it all the time. Maybe it's because music is such an integral part of who I am, that it has such a powerful influence over my life. But seriously, some lyrics definitely make you stop and think. Anyways, here are the ones from the journal. (I even found out the song and artist they were from)

"She's been known to get a little tipsy
Prim and proper flies right out the door
I love it when my baby lets her hair down
She's an angel with a little set of horns

That girl has got a heart as big as Texas
She never goes to bed before she prays
When she gets mad she'll send a sailor blushin'
But she's a sweet as Louisiana sugarcane

Yeah, she's snow white, with a little tattoo
Her Sunday dress is just a little torn
And she may not be a saint
But I don't care what she ain't
She's my angel with a little set of horns"

song by: Willmon Trent
title: Little Set of Horns
album: Broken In

Ah, something we have in common. Nothing gets to me like music...seriously. I get fixated. And those are great lyrics.

What? You didn't know that Snow White had a little tattoo?

I completely get that Karen, it's definitely something we have in common. I think that's what attracted me to your blog in the first place, was your little blurb about music and lyrics.

Thanks for stopping by over here Derek. And nope, I was COMPLETELY unaware that Snow White had a tattoo of any kind. :)

I do this too with lyrics and with poetry. The first time I heard One Republic's Come Home. I just cried my eyes out because it reminded me of waiting for my son to finally be my son, he was adopted. It was the exact same reaction that I had when I read E.E. Cummings poem, I Carry Your Heart. I can't listen or read either without just wanting to cuddle my little bug.

Great song, and I love that story. I'll have to read that poem, it souds wonderful. I'm glad you have such wonderful things that deepen your connection with your little bug. Thanks for stopping by :)
