Top 2 Tuesday!

Today's theme is: Top 2 Favorite Songs

1. Breathe (2 AM) by Anna Nalick.
This has been one of my favorite songs for quite some time. When I first heard this song, I felt like it was speaking directly to me. It explained my passion to write and create. It justified my urge to vent.

"If I get it all down on paper, it's no longer inside of me,
Threatening the life it belongs to
And I feel like I'm naked in front of the crowd
Cause these words are my diary, screaming out loud
And I know that you'll use them, however you want to."

2. Stars Over Texas by Tracy Lawrence
I love everything about this man. His voice, his hair, that hat. Oh goodness. *fans self*
I'm usually not the type to go for the "country boy" artist, but this one started from an early age. Daddy listened to him all the time, and by the time I was 3, I knew all the words to every song he'd written thus far. I guess you could say I learned to talk by singing songs.

Anyway, this song has a lot of meaning to me. The end of the chorus makes me swoon. It's such a well-written song and his voice is just perfect for it.

"As long as the tides ebb
The earth turns the sun sets
I promise I'll always be true
And as long as there's Stars over Texas
Darling I'll hang the moon for you"
