Patrick Park - Life is a Song

And we are back to talking about rainy day music and well I wish that my entire blog was dedicated to this type of music because I can sit and write about it all day long. Its just those songs that absolutely never get old, the songs that no matter how many times you hear them they take you to that calm place. That place of peace that we are all really searching for in this life (at least thats what I think thats why we are find our little slice of peace in our surroundings, to be comfortable in who you are and what you are trying to be). 

Okay little bit off subject there but hopefully your still following me. 

This next song I know I have written about before, and really it has to be about the lyrics. Patrick Park is a songwriter who is an amazing poet. Much like Dylan and Springsteen he takes everyday words, stories and twists them into simple songs about life and his surroundings. His tunes are breezy, they are light but the lyrics are heavy. 

Like this song "Life is a Song" it talks about how sometimes in this life of ours people take things too seriously. They don't realize the beauty that is right there in front of them. They take the concepts of good health, good friends and family for granted, forgetting that thats really what makes the world go around. The little things. And yes, "Maybe life is a song but you're scared to sing along..." things are tough, life is not pretty, but if you sit around and not grab it and go for the ride you will miss out on a great thing. 

"always forget how strange it is to be alive at all"
