Three-Day Lyrical Challenge: Day 1

Hey there, book nerds! 

Unless you really get to know the blogger on the other side of the screen it’s pretty rare to get insights into their other loves — outside of books of course. So I was pretty excited when my girl Michaela (Journey Into Books) tagged me in the THREE-DAY LYRICAL CHALLENGE! The rules of the tag are explained below, but before you scroll on to see today’s pick take a quick second to check out her page (linked above)! Whether you’re looking for TTT posts, ARC reviews, or creative tags (like this one), Michaela has you covered! Go give her some love!

 TODAY’S SELECTION:

“Wake Up” by Coheed and Cambria.

I’m going to ride this plane out of your life again.
I wish that I could stay but you argue.
More than this I wish you could’ve seen my face
In backseat staring out the window.

I’ll do anything for you,
Kill anyone for you.

So leave yourself intact
‘Cause I will be coming back.
In a phrase to cut these lips,
I love you.

The morning will come
In the press of every kiss
With your head upon my chest
Where I will annoy you
With every waking breath
Until you decide to wake up.

I’ve earned through hope and faith
The curves around your face
That I’m the one you’ll hold forever.
If morning never comes for either one of us,
Then this I pray to you wherever.

I’ll do anything for you.
This story is for you.
(‘Cause I’d do anything you want me to… for you.)
I’ll do anything for you,
Kill anyone for you.

So leave yourself intact
‘Cause I won’t be coming back.
In a phrase to cut these lips,
I loved you.

The morning will come
In the press of every kiss
With your head upon my chest
Where I will annoy you
With every waking breath
Until you decide to wake up.

The morning will come
In the press of every kiss
With your head upon my chest
Where I will annoy you
With every waking breath
‘Til you decide to wake up.


My Thoughts:

The true joy of music is its ability to flash you back to a specific moment in time. And this song will always take me back to three pivotal memories — the most important of which being the summer I fell in love with my husband. You see, memory one transports me back to that special season between the end of high school and the start of college where everything felt new & exciting. I remember cruising in his blue Explorer on summer nights screaming singing the lyrics to this entire album (I’m looking at you “The Suffering”) on repeat until we finally broke it up with some Silverstein or Taking Back Sunday.b11 Memory two flashes me back to our 4-year-long-distance relationship (separate universities) where my hubby (then boyfriend) would play this song to me on his guitar before we ended our nightly phone calls. This is pretty much when that song became synonymous with comfort and love. And memory three takes me to the morning of our wedding (8 years later) where I received a text message from him while getting ready (since we decided we wouldn’t see each other at all the day of until I was walking down the aisle) that was an audio clip of him playing our song. I can’t even describe the emotions I felt that day, and am thankful my makeup wasn’t yet applied!


I know this tag is a little outside the norm, but I hope you enjoyed getting an extra glimpse into my life! I tag: Melanie, May, and Siobhan. Can’t wait to see what lyrics/songs you guys choose!

      ❤ ❤ I don't even have words for that response. I was so nervous "oversharing" all these details that I even cut stuff out (ex: waiting for Claudio outside of the House of Blues so we could fangirl/fanboy, which led to jackets getting signed and me petting his hair 😂).

      I sincerely appreciate your kind words and wish we lived closer! Hugs! And I can't wait to see which 3 songs you pick!<3
