Cinnamon and Honey: It’s not just good on toast

There’s something special happening today.

You see awhile back Robin of C&H said she’d like to do a meme of her own. A musical meme since music is one of her passions. Music just happens to be a passion of mine as well so when I got the official announcement from Robin that today this Monday is Monday’s Muse I simply had to join in. Here’s the official description from Robin at Cinnamon and Honey:

It’s called “Monday’s Muse” and it’s a meme for all things inspirational. Here’s your chance to share something that’s currently meaningful to you… a song, a video, a poem, a book… or anything that’s gotten into your head and you can’t get rid of. If it’s important, I want to know all about it. I’d love it if you stopped by to find out what’s got everyone movin’ and shakin’. Can’t wait to see you there!

I’ve got a song that’s Swinging in my mind a lot and now it can official swing thanks to getting back online and buying it off iTunes. In case you hadn’t guessed by my oh so clever wordplay I’m talking about Strawberry Swing by Coldplay.

This song just seems to scream summer and warm breezes and running in the grass with no shoes. At least to me it does. It sounds fantastic in my living room while I’m reading, it sounds wonderful in my kitchen/office while I’m cooking or writing and it even sounds great rolling around in my mini-van.

Here are the words:

They were sitting
They were sitting in the strawberry swing
Every moment was so precious

They were sitting
They were talking in the strawberry swing
Everybody was for fighting
Wouldn’t want to waste a thing

Cold cold water, bring me ’round
Now my feet won’t touch the ground
Cold cold water, whatcha say?
It’s such, it’s such a perfect day
It’s such a perfect day

I remember
We were walking up to strawberry swing
I can’t wait ’til the morning
Wouldn’t want to change a thing

People moving all the time
Inside a perfectly straight line
Don’t you wanna just curve away?
And it’s such, it’s such a perfect day
It’s such a perfect day

Ahh…

Now the sky could be blue
I don’t mind
Without you, it’s a waste of time

Could be blue
I don’t mind
Without you, it’s a waste of time

Now the sky could be blue
Could be grey
Without you, I’m just miles away

Now the sky could be blue
I don’t mind
Without you, it’s a waste of time

I enjoyed playing along today with Robin on the kickoff of her Monday’s Muse meme. Please head over and visit Robin at Cinnamon and Honey and say hi. You may just find something that sticks with you.
