Musical Monday: Coldplay: A Sky Full of Stars

Monday, June 23, 2014

Happy Monday Afternoon, My Lovelies!  I'm pleased to announce that Shelley had her last day of school today.  She finished her coursework on June 3rd, had one day off, and then started Driver's Ed.  She passed her driver's test and earned her yellow card, which means she'll get to go to the DMV in a couple of weeks and get her driver's license.  YAY, Shelley!

YAY for school being *out*   YAY YAY YAY!!!!

When Shelley told our priest at church yesterday that she was nervous about taking her driver's test today, he said (loudly)  "Freedom!"  Sort of like this:

Well....maybe not quite as loudly as Mel Gibson in Brave Heart...
but made Shelley giggle!

Sorry for the on to Musical Monday!  

I love Coldplay, and I've been enjoying listening to their new album Ghost Stories quite a bit! A Sky Full of Stars is the second single from the album. Enjoy! 

"Sky Full of Stars" Lyrics

'Cause you're a sky, cause you're a sky full of stars
I'm gonna give you my heart

'Cause you're a sky, cause you're a sky full of stars
'Cause you light up the path

I don't care, go on and tear me apart
I don't care if you do

'Cause in a sky, cause in a sky full of stars
I think I saw you

'Cause you're a sky, cause you're a sky full of stars
I want to die in your arms, arms

'Cause you get lighter the more it gets dark
I'm going to give you my heart

And I don't care, go on and tear me apart
And I don't care if you do

'Cause in a sky, cause in a sky full of stars

I think I see you
I think I see you

Because you're a sky, you're a sky full of stars
Such a heavenly view
You're such a heavenly view

What have you been listening to?

This is a linky @ My So-Called Chaos!

Until next time...

  1. Yay for the drivers license!! It is sweet freedom you know....for both of you. :) I missed riding in the car with my boys though.

    Love Coldplay!

  2. Just watched the video. That Chris Martin is so cute!

  3. I love Coldplay, too. And I wish I had linked up with you with my last book post. Enjoy your week! School's OUT...YAY!!!! Hugs, Diane

  4. Steve has been streaming Pandora all morning.

    I put the Cold Play video on and asked him to guess the group. He got Cold Play in just a few notes. He is a music lover.

  5. Oh boy...congrats to Shelley, maybe not so much for Mom & Dad? lol
    Olivia starts driver's ed on the 30th & I'm not sure whether to be happy or just plain scared.

  6. I really enjoy Cold Play. Great pick! Yay for Shelley!!! Yay for Mom!!! FREEDOM for both. *giggle*

  7. Popping over from Art and Sand to say hello! My 16 year old is finishing up her driver's ed and will be getting her permit soon, as well. She is also a huge Coldplay fan, so I've heard this song a lot lately! I do like it too :)

  8. I love the new Coldplay album.
    Congrats to your daughter. Getting your drivers license is one of the most liberating events in a person's life! I still remember the freedom I felt when I passed my test.

  9. OH I am such a COLDPLAY fan, sort of known for some of my air guitar singing in the kitchen to all my favourites over the years... Hmmm.... shouldn't be proud of that maybe. :)
    Oh RJ, I have started reading the Outlander series... completely hooked. Thank you.

  10. I've been loving anything by 'Clean Bandit' and a Toronto band called 'Bahamas'.

  11. Aw, I like that song! Thanks for linking up love!

  12. I love Coldplay also! I always find it funny when you tell something about yourself and its something else we have in common.
