Cruise [Remix] – Florida Georgia Line (feat. Nelly)

I’ve loved this song since it came on the radio several weeks ago, and still love it now that it’s been redone and back on the radio again. This weekend is one of several that I’m………wait for it………wait for it………driving. Blah. Haha. It’s wonderful that I’ve had so many fun road trips this summer, but it’s a lot of time spent in the car! Some of the places I’ve already made trips to just in the past couple of weeks include Minneapolis, Des Moines, Kansas City….and now to Pomme de Terre in southern MO for a week of vacation with the family! The plan is to spend the week relaxing, reading, playing games together, water skiing, tubing, riding jet skis, and one more thing on my bucket list…skydiving! It’s going to be a crazy week! I can’t wait to have some of my first time off of work for the summer! I’m just so blessed that I have the opportunity to travel…especially with “the windows down and the radio up, just cruising” down the highway! I’m ready to soak up the sun this week, and also think about the plans I’m making for the rest of the summer. Can’t wait!

Cruise [Remix] – Florida Georgia Line (feat. Nelly)
Baby you a song
You make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise.

I got my windows down, and the radio up, get your radio up
I got my windows down, and the radio up, get your radio up.

Yeah when I first saw that bikini top on her
She’s poppin’ right out of the South Georgia water
Thought ol’ good Lord, she had them long tanned legs
Couldn’t help myself so I walked up and said.

Chorus:
Baby you a song
You make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise
Down a back road blowin’ stop signs through the middle
Every little farm town with you
And this brand new Chevy with a lift kit
Would look a hell of a lot better with you up in it
So baby you a song
You make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise.

I got my windows down, and the radio up, get your radio up.

She was sippin’ on Southern and singin’ Marshall Tucker
We were falling in love in the sweet heart of summer
She hopped right up into the cab of my truck
And said, “Fire it up! Let’s go get this thing stuck!” Chorus

[Nelly:]
My windows down, my seats back
My music up and we ride
Her legs up on my dashboard
And it’s just like the way I like
Hey country girl, this country boy
Like everything about you
Don’t change a thing, no way
You stay the same and I got you
I like saw that, all that
Head to toe you all that
Tell ol’ boy he can call back
Send her a text say, “fall back” cause
I can see you got a thing for the fast life
So come on, shawty, let me show you what the fast like
Whipping ‘cross the border, Florida into Georgia.

Cause baby you a song
And you make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise
Down a back road blowing stop signs through the middle
Every hooter town with you
And this drop-top Chevy painted real slick
Would look a hell of a lot better with you up in it.
Cause baby you a song
And you make me wanna roll my, roll my, r-r-r-roll… Chorus

I got my windows down, and the radio up, get your radio up
Get those windows down and cruise,
I got my windows down, and the radio up, get your radio up
I got my windows down, and the radio up, get your radio up.

Sure Be Cool If You Did – Blake Shelton

“You don’t have to keep me falling like this, but it’d sure be cool if you did.”

Sure Be Cool If You Did – Blake Shelton
I was gonna keep it real like chill like only have a drink or two
But it turned into a party when I started talking to you
Now you’re standing in the neon looking like a high I wanna be on
Baby it’s your call, no pressure at all.

Chorus:
You don’t have to throw back your pretty pink lemonade shooter
And lean a little closer
You don’t have to keep on smiling that smile that’s driving me wild
And when the night is almost over
Meet me in the middle of a moonlit Chevy bench seat
And do a little bit of country song, hanging on
You don’t have to keep me falling like this
But it’d sure be cool if you did.

You can’t shoot me down cause you’ve already knocked me dead
Got me falling apart with my heart talking out of my head
Let your mind take a little back road just as far as you wanna go
Baby, I’ll do, whatever you wanna do, wanna do. Chorus

Have a night that you’ll never forget
And now you’re standing in the neon looking like a high I wanna be on. Chorus

Yeah, it’d sure be cool if you did.

Lead With Your Heart – The Tenors

This song is one that I’ve loved for a long time, but became even more meaningful after hearing The Tenors perform in Kansas City a couple weekends ago. I’m definitely one of those people who doesn’t think “logically” all the time. I’m a MUSIC therapist…I deal with emotions all day long, every day. I make people laugh, I make people cry, I don’t make people think about big decisions using their brain, but instead using their heart. I recently had a friend tell me that I can sometimes make life harder for myself because I let my emotions dictate my decisions instead of trying to analyze life and figure it out logically. On one hand, yeah, I’m sure that does make me more vulnerable and open to having my heart hurt more easily. I trust people that I meet completely, and I like to believe the best in others which sometimes means I get “fooled by the lies” which this song talks about. On the other hand though, I think using my heart to guide my life just means that I’m genuine, and that I don’t pretend to be someone that I’m not. Being friends with Mer means you get 100% of me…my goofy personality, my quirky laugh, my southern attitude, and complete honesty. I’m just not willing to be someone I’m not just to impress somebody. God has done an incredible work in my life to take me from being completely broken, to a strong and independent woman. Loving the people around me and using my heart to show me where I’m supposed to be doesn’t work for everybody, but it is what works for me.

“And there’s no longer any doubt what the mystery’s about for you, or what you should do. Lead, lead with your heart. It’s the one thing you can trust to always come from love.”

Lead With Your Heart – The Tenors
In this world, it’s hard to tell the shadows from the light
What is real can find a way to hide behind the lies
Don’t be fooled or ruled by voices all around you
‘Cause your road will always be revealed.

Chorus:
If you lead, lead with your heart,
It’s the one thing you can trust, to always come from love
And it will shine, right through the dark
Like a northern star to show you what is true
You’ll never lose, if only you
Will lead with your heart.

You have been, the truest friend that anyone could have
And that love you always give I want you to get back.
You’ve been knocked down, and found, that everyone is what they show you.
What is true will always be revealed. Chorus

It takes the beautiful unknown, that somehow makes you feel
You’re home again, finally home again
And there’s no longer any doubt what the mystery’s about for you
Or what you should do?
Lead, lead with your heart
It’s the one thing you can trust
To always come from love. Chorus

Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) – Hillsong United

This week, I’ve been trusting.  Trusting, praying, and resting in the Lord.  Trusting that He has my plans figured out, and that I don’t have to worry.  I will call upon His name, and do my best to keep my eyes above the waves.  “Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders. Let me walk upon the waters, wherever you would call me. Take me deeper than my faith could ever wander. And my faith will be made stronger in the presence of my Savior.”

Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) – Hillsong United
You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand.

And I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine.

Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You’ve never failed and You won’t start now.

So I will call upon your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine.

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior. [x5]

I will call upon Your Name
Keep my eyes above the waves
My soul will rest in Your embrace
I am Yours and you are mine.
