I’ve been feeling a bit down lately. Things are a bit up in the air, work-wise and health-wise – and although there is some light on the horizon, it still seems a long way off, and I’ve been wondering how we’re going to manage to hang on until we get there.

Then Paul played me the video of “Anna Sun”, by Walk The Moon, and it cheered me up. It’s a feel good song, and in my view you can never have too many of those, especially in difficult times. 🙂

The lyrics in the chorus really hit home for me:
“This house is falling apart
We got no money, but we got heart.”

Because I suppose, in the grand scheme of things, that’s the most important thing – having heart. Whether you’re a millionaire or a pauper – whether you’re healthy or have health issues. Whatever your situation, the only thing that really matters is whether you’ve got heart – or soul.

The video for the song is fun too. It makes me laugh the way the singer looks surprised as he’s walking through the various rooms of the house – perhaps, during rehearsals, there was just him on his own. And I love the fact that he’s a really rubbish dancer, but still manages to look cool, and like he’s simply enjoying himself with his mates.

This house might be falling apart, but – so far at least – it’s still standing!

“Anna Sun” – Walk The Moon

Screen falling off the door door hanging off the hinges my
Feet are still sore my back is on the fringes
We tore up the walls we slept on couches
We lifted this house we lifted this house

Fire-crackers in the east my car parked south
Your hands on my cheeks your shoulder in my mouth
I was up against the wall on the west mezzanine
We rattle this town, we rattle this scene

O, Anna Sun
O, Anna Sun

What do you know? this house is falling apart
What can I say? this house is falling apart
We got no money, but we got heart
We’re gonna rattle this ghost town
This house is falling apart

Screen falling off the door door hanging off the hinges
My feet are still sore my back is on the fringes
We were up against the wall on the west mezzanine
We rattle this town we rattle this scene

O, Anna Sun
O, Anna Sun

What do you know? this house is falling apart
What can I say? this house is falling apart
We got no money, but we got heart
We’re gonna rattle this ghost town

What do you know? this house is falling apart
What can I say? this house is falling apart
We got no money, but we got heart
We’re gonna rattle this ghost town
This house is falling apart
This house is falling apart

Live my life without
Station wagon rides
Fumbling around the back
Not one seat belt on
Wait for summertime
Coming up for air
Now it’s all a wash
Now it’s all a wash

Live my life without
Coming up for air
Now it’s all a wash
I want everyone
Racing down the hill
I am faster than you
Wait for summertime
Wait for summertime

O, Anna Sun
O, Anna Sun, sun

What do you know? this house is falling apart
What can I say? this house is falling apart
We got no money, but we got heart
We’re gonna rattle this ghost town

What do you know? this house is falling apart
What can I say? this house is falling apart
We got no money, but we got heart
We’re gonna rattle this ghost town
This house is falling apart
This house is falling apart
This house is falling apart

We’re gonna rattle this ghost town
This house is falling apart
This house is falling apart
