Day 2446: “Would You Wait For Me” by Brett Young

Would you wait for me

When I got to leave

Could I ever be

Everything you need

If I promise you my love

Could that promise be in love

Would you wait for me

Would you wait for me

Brett Young, “Would You Wait For Me”

 

It’s 11 : 09 AM on day 2446 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray,   have breakfast, read Proverbs 23:25 and learn a new word – Definitions for backronym
1. an existing word turned into an acronym by creating an apt phrase whose initial letters match the word, as to help remember it or offer a theory of its origin. For example, rap has been said to be a backronym of “rhythm and poetry.”

Day 2287: “Holy War” by Alicia Keys

What if sex was holy and war was obscene
And it wasn’t twisted, what a wonderful dream
Living for love, unafraid of the end
Forgiveness is the only real revenge

Oh so we can heal each other and fill each other
We can break these walls between each other
Baby, blow by blow and brick by brick
Keep yourself open, yourself open
Yeah we can heal each other and fill each other
We can break these walls between each other
Baby, blow by blow and brick by brick
Keep yourself open, you’re open

So maybe we should love somebody
Maybe we could care a little more
So maybe we should love somebody
Instead of polishing the bombs of holy war

Day 2267: “Over and Over Again” by Nathan Sykes

From the way you smile to the way you look
You capture me unlike no other
From the first hello, yeah, that’s all it took
And suddenly we had each other

And I won’t leave you
Always be true
One plus one, two for life
Over and over again

So, don’t ever think I need more
I’ve got the one to live for
No one else will do, and I’m telling you
Just put your heart in my hands
Promise it won’t get broken
We’ll never forget this moment
Yeah, we’ll stay brand-new ’cause I’ll love you
Over and over again
Over and over again
