Right now (and for a while) my favourite song has been Beautiful Thing by Sister Hazel. Certain lyrics just make me happy when I hear them.

Here’s the video:

And here’s the lyrics (with my fave bits in bold)

Well I’ll follow you wherever
When you lead me by my nose
On another big adventure I suppose
Then you lay me down in clover
With their petals on my back
I should make some time
To do more things like that
*1

Won’t you sing to me your poetry,
Won’t you take me to your home,
Won’t you be for me forever
So I’ll never be alone
And just one thing
If you’re my queen
Then it’s a beautiful thing

Well I’m buried in my bedroom
Under fourteen feet of clothes
I could drown in all this clutter I suppose

But then you’re standing in my doorway
With a suitcase on your back
And it blows my mind
When you do things like that
*2

Won’t you sing to me your poetry,
Won’t you take me to your home,
Won’t you be for me forever
So I’ll never be alone
And just one thing
If you’re my queen
Then it’s a beautiful thing

Yeah, reminding me
Well I might be poor
But summers free
For me, I didn’t know I was sleeping

Won’t you sing to me your poetry,
Won’t you take me to your home,
Won’t you be for me forever
So I’ll never be alone
And just one thing
If you’re my queen
Then it’s a beautiful thing

*1 I love this bit so much I even made fan art with a clock I got for my birthday a few years ago!

*2 I love this bit because sometimes I’m the first verse and sometimes I’m the second. At the moment I’m looking forward to being the second! Even if it freaks me out to no end 😀 (which is one of the reasons I’m doing it)

Also, the fact that a friend of mine managed to get SH to dedicate this song to Skyring and I the only time I’ve seen them live makes it SO MUCH MORE MADE OF AWESOME!
