Music Monday: Collide by Howie Day

Up north and west in the Roxiticus Valley, we're snowed in and lovin' it. Getting out in the Winter Wonderland to do some sledding and trying to build a snowman, playing Scrabble in front of a roaring fire, and catching up on some work while rating the "Unrated" list from my iPod classic. We're down to 5,209 unrated songs, having just given "Collide" by Howie Day five stars and deciding it would be the Bay Head Blog pick for today's Music Monday. Apparently, the song was featured in the movie of The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks, which I've been meaning to rent or buy. I loved the book... just another one of Roxy's shameful page turners!

The dawn is breaking
A light shining through
You're barely waking
And I'm tangled up in you

I'm open, you're closed
Where I follow, you'll go
I worry I won't see your face
Light up again

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to rhyme
Out of the doubt that fills my mind
I somehow find
You and I collide

I'm quiet you know
You make a first impression
I've found I'm scared to know I'm always on your mind

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the stars refuse to shine
Out of the back you fall in time
I somehow find
You and I collide

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to ryhme
Out of the doubt that fills your mind
You finally find
You and I collide

You finally find
You and I collide
You finally find
You and I collide

Hey.. Happy MM!!

I love listening to songs that I haven't heard in a while! :) It's so refreshing.. and oh.. who doesn't just loooove the Notebook?? Both book AND movie!! *sighhhs*

I've also chosen a movie soundtrack for one of my MMs for my blog, Just Press Play. From the movie, P.S. I Love You. :) Hope you check it out!

this will sound crazy, but even though i just finished writing a MM post, i feel obsessive about not posting it prior to Monday and now seeing that you've posted this sweet MM post i'm fighting the urge to post what i've (though not nearly as pleasant as what you've shared) written...

;) cheers!
