Hey you guys! For my birthday, I’d like to tell you about my favorite song! Is that cool? 🙂
True – I have countless favorite songs. But this one is extra special for my birthday based on the lyrics, guitar riffs, and the overall awesomeness of this song that is also a reflection of me. At the risk of sounding self-centered, I’d like to say that System of a Down wrote Aerials JUST. FOR. ME. Logically, I do not know the band personally but, they still know me. OR, they know my kind.
SO, have you heard Aerials before? I listed to it maybe upwards of 20 times today. I’m powering up lol!
Let’s talk about the amazing lyrics of Aerials.
Life is a waterfall. We’re one in the river and one again after the fall.
This next verse is directly related to my past feelings of depression was overcome by the presence of God in my life:
Swimming through the void, we hear the WORD,
We lose ourselves but we find it ALL.
L o v e T h i s S o n g.
Cuz we are the ones the love to play,
Always wanna go but you never wanna stay.
That is funny because that is me. I always want to go to a party or gathering but when I get there, I am ready to leave. LOL. It reminds me of these people I used to hang out with. A young lady and her boyfriend used to invite me out to house parties and stuff. The boyfriend, James, always told me, “Whenever you wanna leave, Nay. We will go.” and I LOVED that. I felt so comfortable. and then, a group of us went out without James. And when I was ready to go – James’ girlfriend was like, “It’s not happening tonight, Nay-Nay.” SMH I admit to being a little demanding but I didn’t like her attitude about it lol
In The Sky.
When you lose small mind you free your life.
This song is perfection and blessed are those who find comfort and salvation in these lyrics.
Another reason why this song is so special to me is because God gave me the name Ariel. So, I did change my name.
God also told me that instead of walking with my head down, I should walk with my head held high and to smile and wave at the people who watch me.
Okay, that’s the end of this post. It’s been a great birthday. We went to my cousin’s church and God is endlessly pleased with us.
Anyone who knows what love feels like, know what it means to be blessed 🙂
