Guided by my beating heart

I'm floating away to the sentimental stuff. Bare with me, it's just that this tune has been (on repeat) pulling my heart strings for my greatest memories of life in another town; strangely, the lyrics are the word-for-word-perfect storyline to those days guided by my beating heart; where morning hours woke me by sweet sunshine spilling onto my bed through treetop leaves; where I daydreamed over brewed coffee and wonderful people and packed my senses with the simplest pleasures - days spent finding myself without even knowing I was lost.
"...they say I'm caught up in a dream,
Life will pass me by if I don't open up my eyes,
Well that's fine by me.

So wake me up when it's all over,
When I'm wiser and I'm older,
All this time I was finding myself,
And I didn't know I was lost" - Avicii, Wake Me Up
Ever had a song instantly transport you to past memories when you least expect it? What was the song?


  1. certain songs always remind me of things... sometimes even just bands.

    1. Thanks Kat. Thought the pic captured the mood perfectly :) It's exactly how the music makes me feel.

  5. Songs from high school instantly bring me back! All the alternative rock from 2004 to 2007. Ah, sweet memories! lol

  6. Great song. Music is a beautiful thing.

  7. Maria, you have no idea how badly i want to insert myself in that image right now. what a perfect place to be!!! wow, love it. isn't music a touch stone for memory trails leading far and wide. sounds like your recall was a sweet spot full of emotive grace!

    i have many songs that hold meaning, one of which is from New Order and it's called Age Of Consent. can't say the lyrics mean as much as yours did to you but the feeling this song evokes is pure summertime bliss. a happy moment washing my parents car in the open air garage with the boombox blasting and the water sprays keeping me cool. our dog Oscar by my side and the sweet smell of bbq's being prepped for dinner wafting through the air. best ever! thanks for reminding me of it now actually!!! ♥

  8. Nice song!!! would you like to follow each other?
    Besos, desde España, Marcela♥
