Blog Venture - Day 1

I have decided to take on the task of doing my very own Blog Venture. For the next week, I am going to (try to) post the lyrics of one song per day, that somehow pertain to my life.
It will, in a way, be my own personal project of discovery through music. I know, I know. I do this everyday! But I feel like sharing.
Even though it seems like no one "follows" my blog or comments on my posts, I still consider this a sort of outlet for my mind! So let me begin with the song for today; It is by Lady Antebellum off of their album 'Need You Now', and the song is titled 'Hello World'. I love this song, for the simple fact that it explains perfectly, how I have felt at times in my life (quite recently). It is one of those songs that gives me the chills whenever I hear it, because I can relate so intensely. So please, take a listen to this beautiful song, and their amazing harmonies!

                                                       Lady Antebellum - "Hello World"

"Traffic cars, cell phone calls, talk radio screams at me
Through my tinted windows I see a little girl, rust red minivan
She's got chocolate on her face, got little hands
And she waves at me, yeah, she smiles at me

Well, hello world, how've you been?
Good to see you, my old friend
Sometimes I feel cold as steel
Broken like I'm never gonna heal
I see a light, little hope in the little girl
Well, hello world

Every day I drive by a little white church
It's got these little white crosses like angels in the yard
Maybe I should stop on in and say a prayer
Maybe talk to God like he is there
Oh, I know He's there, yeah, I know He's there

Well, hello world, how've you been?
Good to see you, my old friend
Sometimes I feel as cold as steel
And broken like I'm never gonna heal
I see a light, little grace, little faith unfurl
Well, hello world

Sometimes I forget what living's for
And I hear my life through my front door
And I'll be there, oh, I'm home again

I see my wife, little boy, little girl
Hello world, hello world

Oh, the empty disappears
I remember why I'm here
To surrender and believe
I fall down on my knees
Oh hello world, hello world, hello world"


  1. Psh. I read your blog every time you post! For some reason my comments haven't been showing up though.

  2. I read your blog!! Yes, I do! I don't think I've ever heard this song. I like it a lot!

  3. I'm with Mandy and Carly we read your blog and LOVE it! It helps me stay in touch with you besides all the texts lol. This is one of my favorite songs, but I love almost every Lady Antebellums song! This is the reason that I love country so much it seems like their songs speak to their listeners. Some of them even can explain exactly how you feel. I <3 you! See you soon!!!
