Musical Monday: Believer by American Authors

Monday, June 3, 2013

I picked this song because I really love this Brooklyn band.  "Believer" is upbeat, and sassy.  But I also had a shamelessly self-promoting reason for posting this song this week.   ;P

On Friday, I want you to share with me your Summer Reading List.  {Get it:  American Authors}
I will review a book and share my tentative Summer Reading List with you.  So hurry over to Goodreads and get some ideas for beach/lake reading!  YAY!

"Believer" by American Authors

(I'm just a believer that things will get better
Some can take it or leave it
But I don't wanna let it go) 2x


I'm a little bit sheltered
I'm a little bit scared
I'm a little bit nervous
I'm goin' nowhere

I'm a little bit jealous

I'm a little bit slow
I'm a little bit hurtful
and I don't wanna let it go
And I don't wanna let it go


I'm a little bit angry
When everyone's around
But I get a little lonely
When no one's out

I feel my demons misleading me

(Chorus) x2

I'm just a believer that things will get better
Some can take it or leave it
But I don't wanna let it go

[ From: ]

Maybe when I get older
And I'm in the ground
Weights off my shoulders,
It was bringin' me down (down)

I've never been that lucky

I've never tasted fame (fame)
I was always lookin' for somethin'
But I hate changing


Cause time fades
There's no space
As life breaks new ground



It doesn't matter what is out there
My head is spinnin and I won't bail out
It doesn't matter what is out there
(oh-woah oh oh oh oh)



(na na na na na, nana na na na

na na na na na )x2

I don't wanna let it go!

  2. I'm in. I'm working on my summer reading list post right now. It is good motivation for me to get it organized. I can only imagine how many books you read in a summer.

  3. This is one of the pieces I'm listening to. Mozart Sonata k333 in B flat major first movement
