Touched by a Song Today

This morning when I was driving to work, I heard "Jealous of the Moon" by Nickel Creek for the first time ever. I'm not sure how it is that I'd never heard it before (especially since it's like 5 years old), and I totally had to come home and download it tonight.

It's beautiful. I probably would have been moved to tears if I wasn't so bound and determined to not shed any. I found myself wanting to listen to it over and over again, but unfortunately the radio doesn't really work that way. Sometimes there are songs that just touch your core... and this one did for me to today.

I have to share the lyrics, and you need to listen to it on this youtube video. I just pulled the lyrics off the net.




Tryin' on a brand new dress
But you haven't worn the old one yet
You've come too far
To turn around now

You've given up the good fight
You're as strong as anyone
You're back where you started from
I see you're back where you started from

Starin' down the stars
Jealous of the moon
You wish you could fly
Just being where you are
There's nothin' you can do
If you're too scared to try

Drag your pretty head around
Swearin' you're gonna drown
With a beautiful sigh
And a river of lies

Starin' down the stars
Jealous of the moon
You wish you could fly
Just stayin' where you are
There's nothin' you can do
If you're too scared to try

Why don't you call me, I could save you
Together we'll find a God we can pray to
That'll take you by the hand

I hate to see a friend of mine
Laughing out loud
When she's crying inside
But you've got your pride

Starin' down the stars
Jealous of the moon
You wish you could fly
But you're stayin' where you are
There's nothin' you can do
If you're too scared to try

You're starin' down the stars
Stay where you are
You're jealous of the moon
But there's nothing you can do
If you're too scared to try

Great song. Nickel Creek is fantastic.
I have a greatest hits album and another of theirs if you'd like copies.
