World Spins Madly On

Sometimes a song will move you to tears. This one by The Weepies moves me. I heard it first in Because I Said So (one of my favorite movies ever) and I was just stunned…it’s beautiful, sentimental but not far-reaching. There is no way you can listen to this and not think of something, or someone in your own life. 2:45, amazing, you should hear it and you’ll know.

Woke up and wished that I was dead
With an aching in my head
I lay motionless in bed
I thought of you and where you’d gone
And let the world spin madly on

Everything that I said I’d do
Like make the world brand new
And take the time for you
I just got lost and slept right through the dawn
And the world spins madly on

I let the day go by
I always say goodbye
I watch the stars from my window sill
The whole world is moving and I’m standing still

Woke up and wished that I was dead
With an aching in my head
I lay motionless in bed
The night is here and the day is gone
And the world spins madly on

I thought of you and where you’d gone
And the world spins madly on.

  1. I love songs like this, ‘The Background’ by Third Eye Blind will still give me chills and reduce me to tears and has since 1999! I have just downloaded this song to listen to 🙂
