Record 1

This will be an ongoing series of blogs where I feature a single song that is in some way special to me personally or I just really think you guys might dig.

Today we’ve got “World Spins Madly On” by The Weepies.

When I first heard this song in high school I loved it so much I posted the lyrics on my Facebook Notes (I used to use notes regularly to post my own lyrics, poems, or share short stories; this was common in the early Facebook days, not so much anymore, I barely use the platform now).

When I posted it my mom approached me about it at home, she wanted to make sure I was okay. I was, I just love the song. My mom has done this a few times in my life, questioned me about something I’ve posted online that worried her, made her think I was perhaps a little unstable. I’ve not always received these questions well because we’ve had a difficult relationship, but I know she always means well when she does it and I am grateful that she does keep a keen eye on me, even if I tell her she doesn’t need to. I’m still working on the way I respond to questions like this, it gets frustrating trying to explain and re-explain why I like things like this. I believe music and lyrics are a form of therapy; songs like this are precisely why I feel okay today, because I take time with these lyrics and they help me think about my life, reaffirm and set positive goals.

It was written by Talan Deborah R and Tannen Steve.

Here are the lyrics:

I woke up and wished that I was dead
With an aching in my head
I lay motionless in bed
I thought of you and where you’d gone
And let the world spin madly onAnd everything that I said I’d do
Like make the world brand new
And take the time for youI just got lost and slept
Right through the dawn
And the world spins madly onI let the day go by
I always say goodbye
I watch the stars from my window sill
The whole world is moving
And I’m standing stillI woke up and wished that I was dead
With an aching in my head
I lay motionless in bed
The night is here and the day is gone
And the world spins madly onI thought of you and where you’d gone
And the world spins madly on
And the world spins madly on
And the world spins madly on
And on
And on
Hey, ah
Hey, ah
Hey, ah

Hope ya dig it!
