This is still one of my favorite songs ever and my favorite Copeland song. It’s interesting that so many of my favorite songs initially draw me in with the lyrics and yet there are a few that I have hardly paid any attention to. This song is an example of the latter. The melody in this song is enough for me but the second the drums kick in it’s even better. I’m a sucker for a good melody accompanied by good drumming. Funny thing is, I’m just now realizing how great the lyrics are too.
“Wake up your eyes And darling, your smile The day is done and everyone’s gone now You can taste every fire And hold every song The world has moved Be quick enough to not miss it now.”
I’ve been failing at keeping up with my new project! To be honest though, I haven’t woken up with any songs in my head lately. However, I did this morning! I’ve been listening to a lot of Into It. Over It. as well as Saves The Day and The Get Up Kids this past week. I’m trying to prep myself for the awesome sing-alongs that I will be a part of at the Where’s The Band? show that I’m attending this Sunday. This particular song is off the IIOI/Koji Split which I like very much.
