One of the great parts of music, for me, is the way it can elevate my mood. While my friends know that smile quite a bit (insert smiley face here), some days can be harder than others.
For this week’s Tunes With Tuesday feature, I want to share a song that gives me hope but not in the way you might think. The song is Use Somebody, by the rock band Kings Of Leon.
I like the song because of the fast beat but also because the lyrics. Kings Of Leon’s lyrics in Use Somebody speak of reaching out for your partner and wanting “Someone like you”. The lyrics remind me of the wonderful feelings of falling in love, with its uplifting days and tender hugs. Although I faced devastation after an unhealthy previous relationship, the song lifts me up with its guitar strings and has me nodding that, yes, the future is not carved out for me. Yes, there is opportunity for love.
Open up your ears and have a great day!
