Count Downs and Floating On!

“Float On” – by Modest Mouse

I backed my car into a cop car, the other day.

Well he just drove off, sometimes life’s ok.

I ran my mouth off a bit too much, oh what did I say.

Well you just laughed it off, it was all ok.

And we’ll all float on, ok.

And we’ll all float on, ok.

And we’ll all float on, ok.

And we’ll all float on any way, well.

A fake Jamaican took every last dime with a scam.

It was worth it just to learn some sleight-of-hand.

Bad news comes don’t you worry even when it lands.

Good news will work its way to all them plans.

We both got fired on exactly the same day.

Well we’ll float on good news is on the way.

And we’ll all float on, ok.

And we’ll all float on, ok.

And we’ll all float on, ok.

And we’ll all float on, alright.

Already we’ll all float on.

No, don’t you worry, we’ll all float on.

Alright, already, we’ll all float on.

Alright, don’t worry, we’ll all float on.

Alright already we’ll all float on.

Alright already we’ll all float on.

Alright don’t worry even if things end up a bit too heavy.

We’ll all float on…alright. Already we’ll all float on.

Alright already we’ll all float on, ok.

Don’t worry we’ll all float on.

Even if things get heavy, we’ll all float on.

Alright already we’ll all float on.

(Alright)

Don’t you worry we’ll all float on.

(Alright)

All float on….

I love this song from Modest Mouse.  Used to listen to it all the time years ago and it’s still on my major playlists because it makes me feel good.  I was driving home (as I’m prone to say all the time in my blogs) and this song came on.  Also, someone used the song and remade it, it’s called “Show Goes On” by Lupe Fiasco and when I heard it I was like, hey it’s my song from Modest Mouse! Haha…
But I used to listen to this song when I was having a bad day.  And it’s old, but still gets the job DONE.  Love that about music.  The older the better, ages like wine.  The old songs is what connects us to a memory, something from our past that stood out and for me, it’s mostly good memories…
And this song came on the radio at the perfect time!  I had gone to my 2nd dress fitting today and took my bestie to her fitting also and we had a good day.  No matter how stressful and overwhelming things can get (like when you are planning a wedding and it being 4 weeks away) there is always time to sit down, have lunch, have a fun conversation, and laugh at where we are today.  That’s what we did.  Plus, with the wedding so near and watching things fall into place, it’s a wonder this song calls to me:
“Don’t you worry we’ll all float on (alright)!”
