Speak to Me…

I wanted to share something that really does Speak To Me. If you know me, maybe you know this, and if you don’t, now you will, and if you don’t know me, well you get to learn something new about me today.  I am a huge OAR fan.  OAR or Of A Revolution is a band from Rockville, Maryland and they are my favorite band, seriously, my favorite.  Now there are people who I’d argue are “bigger” fans the kind that travel to see them.  Not that I wouldn’t travel to see them perform, but that isn’t a particular priority in my life.  That said, when the band makes the annual trip to Red Rocks, I’m there.

So last year, OAR put together a new album and my husband actually bought me the record.  I love love love it.  But of all of the songs on this record of mine there is one song that really has been speaking to me lately and I like to share it with well everyone.  But, since you’re the person that is reading me at the moment.  How about I share it with you?  The song is called The Element.  And here’s what I love about it.  For me it’s about taking on your life, about being a player and active participant in whatever it is that you’re about rather than letting the world just pass you by. Of course, I think I am one of those ridiculously optimistic thinkers but can’t help but to wonder… what if everyone chose to live their life. JUST. THIS. WAY?
Bloggers note and just one opinion…the chorus is ON. THE. MONEY.

“The Element”
Yeah, I’m in the element
Who’s to say it’ll get much better
Yeah, when you’ve got everything
Who’s to say it’ll last forever
I’m on the beach, sun in my hands
Rays on the waves dancings like diamonds
Looking for peace here in the sand
Sounds of the world suddenly silent
Streetlights are on again
Don’t think I wanna come back in
I need to stay right where I stand
And wait for the sky to bend
Yeah, I’m in the element
Who’s to say it’ll get much better
Yeah, when you’ve got everything
Who’s to say it’ll last forever
I need to live this
Not be a witness
Yeah, I’m in the element
Oh, I’m in the element
I’m on the scene sailing away
Chasing the light on the horizon
I can’t believe everyone stayed
Now I’m alone far from the island
This time I won’t forget
Lighthouse can’t call me in
I’d rather stay out on the waves
And wait for the swell to end
And it’s in my hands again
Yeah, I’m in the element
Who’s to say it’ll get much better
Yeah, when you’ve got everything
Who’s to say it’ll last forever
I need to live this
Not be a witness
Yeah, I’m in the element
Oh, I’m in the element
I’m unaware, don’t know when I’ll be here again
I’m a wanderer, it’s my only road
Won’t go home ’til I own what I came here for
I came here for
Yeah, make me feel like my life ain’t over
Yeah, make me feel like I’m getting closer
Yeah, I’m in the element
Who’s to say it’ll get much better
Yeah, When you’ve got everything
Who’s to say it’ll last forever
I need to live this
Not be a witness
Yeah, I’m in the element
Oh, I’m in the element
I need to live this
Not be a witness
Yeah, I’m in the element
Oh, I’m in the element
