Do you hear the same song on the radio more often than others?
I don’t mean the pop tune of the day or the Top 40 songs they play non-stop.
I’m talking about just your average, run of the mill song. Something from a few years ago or even a few decades ago that just so happens to play in your car or on your radio more often than other songs.
For me, that song is “Breathe” by Anna Nalick.
I love this song. I know every word and I sing along whenever I hear it. Or, if I’m by myself, I sing it at the top of my lungs.
It came out in 2004, which doesn’t seem that long ago. Not sure what it is about this song, but I seem to hear it at least once a week while I’m in the car. She has a beautiful voice; I wish she’d record more. And maybe she does and I just don’t know about it. Regardless, it’s a great song. And when I hear it, it’s like a moment of clarity and stillness in my day.
My favorite verse:
“Two a.m. and I’m still awake writing this song
If I get it all down on paper
It’s no longer inside of me
Threatening the life it belongs to.”
Breathe. Good reminder for today and everyday.
