Lyric Lover, II

I'm convinced that if I had any singing voice, I'd spend the moments when I'm alone in song. As it is, I hum--a lot--and I find myself so wrapped up in songs at times, that I reach for a piece of paper to remember the words. Because as I've said before, I love lyrics.

I don't care what you think of the following song or of the lyrics. I simply want to point out the two places within the song that make me think. In my case, thinking leads to writing. Thinking also leads to reflecting. And since reflecting sometimes leads to writing, too, it's become very clear to me that other people's lyrics are very good writing prompts. 

From Cecilia and the Satellite by Andrew MacMahon in the Wilderness

Through all the things my eyes have seen
The best by far is you

For all the things my hands have held
The best by far is you

As it turns out, my girls have fantastic voices, although few people know it. And as scary as identical twins can be, they harmonize without trying. The day I heard them singing this song, I almost cried. I'm not kidding. While I cannot snap their version up, if you want to see the official video, here it is. I think the visuals hold some nice writing prompts, too.
