I have always been guilty of listening to the words of a song too intently. At times in my life listening to the radio was too painful...every song seemed to know my heartbreak. "Yes, Katie Perry, I am a firework," I would say back to the radio.
Other times, the song would bring back amazing memories. Like the memory of the little boy that was so moved by Pharrel's Happy that he launched a dance party of 15 kindergarteners.
Today the song that spoke to me was Ed Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud. He gave me an image of Mara and Cole. My ideal couple. Flawed. Insecure. But most of all completely in love.
