Kind Of Freaking Out Here

Yall.

This is weird.

My super sweet fantastic gorgeous skinny perfect idol of a boss, Melissa (she made me say that) just introduced me to a song today.

Half Moon Bay by Train.

The lyrics are:


This ain't a threat but I think I better warn ya



Gonna fall in love if you go to California

I did and this is how I know..



By the beach north of San Jose

Met the right girl and it sounds cliche

but we decided not to take it slow



I said why wait your my soulmate

Took her by the hand in the golden state

Now that your mine things are gonna be fine...



First came love and a baby carriage

Hardly knew the people at my own damn marriage

where an open bar can open your mind



[Chorus]

You save my life with every word you say

You shine your light for me to find the way

Just hold me tight and cross your heart to stay

Here with me born to be

Every part of you in Half Moon Bay...



Up in Tiburon where the girls are warm

We stay inside while the rain clouds form

And thank god for rainy days like these



Just when the time has come to retire

Baby starts cryin so we dance by the fire

Always does the trick you better believe



[Chorus]

You save my life with every word you say

You shine your light for me to find the way

Just hold me tight and cross your heart to stay

Here with me born to be

Every part of you in Half Moon Bay...



Why go slow if it's nice and steady

We all know its in the stars already

oh ohh oh ohhhh

Why say no if yes feels right

You just go to go where it feels like home



This ain't a threat but I think I better warn ya

Gonna fall in love if you go to California

I did and this is how I know..



[Repeat Chorus]

You save my life with every word you say

You shine your light for me to find the way

Just hold me tight and cross your heart to stay

Here with me born to be

Every part of you in Half Moon Bay...


Blake and me on the beach in Half Moon Bay....May 25, 2000.


It could not be any closer to how our lives played out over 11 years ago.


What are the odds?!

I have chills, peeps.

Love!!!!!!

I have chills for you. But it's also a little cold in my house so that could be it too.

Great pic though.

I love Train so I've listened to that song a million times... but now it will sound so different... in the best possible way.

You two lovers should renew your vows and that can be your second first dance song :)

How perfect, it's a beautiful song. Train is here at the end of the month and we have tickets. We actually met Pat Monahan when Train was here a couple of years ago (even got my picture taken with him). If we get the chance again, I'll see if I can get you a special something autographed by him !!
