Conor will always have a place in my heart

Today i took a trip back a few years in my life and listened to I'm Wide Awake It's Morning by Bright Eyes.

I'd forgotten how much his words resonate with me, and now inspiring his voice is when it fills my ears.

Conor, i will always love you.

This is the first day of my life
Swear I was born right in the doorway
I went out in the rain
Suddenly everything changed
They're spreadin' blankets on the beach
Yours is the first face that I saw
Think I was blind before I met you
I don't know where I amI don't know where I've been
But I know where I want to go
So I thought I'd let you know
That these things take forever
I especially am slow
But I realized that I need you
And I wondered if I could come home
I remember the time you drove all night
Just to meet me in the morning
And I thought it was strange
You said everything changed
You felt as if you'd just woke up
And you said,This is the first day of my life,
Glad I didn't die before I met you
But now I don't care I could go anywhere with you
And I'd probably be happy.
So if you wanna be with me
With these things there's no telling
We'll just have to wait and see
But I'd rather be working for a paycheck
Than waiting to win the lottery
Besides maybe this time it's differentI mean I really think you'll like me...


  1. Conor is so talented. Last year I went to check out Bright Eyes and bought the album you speak of on vinyl. I thought it was so rad they put their albums on vinyl.

    Have a good evening :)
