It’s been a super hectic past few weeks… so much so that my scheduled posts have run out.
Anyway, the award for most awesomely unexpected amazing experience in my life so far goes to…
Watching Chris Carrabba perform “Stolen.”
A foot away from me.
Last night. Just last night.
It was sooo unexpected. I didn’t know that he had a new band (Twin Forks.) Or that Twin Forks was performing in Sydney. Not until last week, when a friend told me she’d won tickets and had a spare. I went through a huge Dashboard Confessional phase when I was younger, and I love live music, so of course I said yes.
I was expecting good music, and I got it… but imagine my surprise when Chris (yes, we’re on a first name basis here… haha) performed this.
This… this beautiful song. This. Pardon everyone else singing, but I still think it’s beautiful. One of my most favorite songs in the entire universe, ever. OK, I’m aware I’m gushing like an obsessed schoolgirl now. But when he started playing it, I couldn’t help but exclaim “oh!” I love this song, I really do. I bought the piano piece a few months back because I wanted to learn how to play it, and I don’t usually do that.
I watch you spin around in your highest heels
You are the best one, of the best ones
We all look like we feel…
Thank you, thank you universe, for this awesome surprise.
