OMG! MY BOOKS HAVE THEIR OWN SONG!!!!!

I am excruciatingly jealous of those who are musically talented. If you can sing, play an instrument, write a song, create a beat, whatever, I’m a fan! I was the girl who spent countless hours of my childhood singing no-so-shamelessly into my hairbrush and desperately wishing that I could be “Hopelessly Devoted” to John Travolta.

Now, not only am I a hardcore Gleek, but my DVR is filling up with American Idol (despite the shake up at the judges table) just so I can watch as brilliant young singers are plucked from obscurity. Secretly, I imagine what it would be like if I were the one standing on the stage in front of millions.

So when my blogger friend DJ sent me this song that he composed, played, AND sang, I was beyond floored. Not only is it incredibly beautiful and haunting, but he wrote it for MY BOOK!!!

Seriously, I’m awed. Thank you, DJ!




Echo

Please hear me
I'm calling to you
I'm cold now
And oh, so broken

Help me...
Save me...

Please take me
Away from this place
Do you see me?
Do you feel me now?

Help me...
Save me...

These echoes
They'll live on forever
Please listen
We're calling to you

Pretty and so haunting! I like to sing along to Pink in my car...but I don't sound so great without her backing me up.

And my 2 year old thinks I am the greatest dancer EVER. So I can cling to that, I guess.
