Rhythm of Love

Rhythm of Love by Plain White T's.
I love this song. It is currently my favorite song. :D
As it so happens, I first heard this song at the OC Fair when I went with my cousin last Thursday. We went on the ride... um... Evolution. That's the one. Anyways, while we were waiting, they were playing music. We had really liked it and tried to remember some of the lines so that we could find it later.
Well, we get off the ride and I'm still humming and I have this one line stuck in my head. Blah blah blah.... A while later I realize that the line has disappeared from my mind. So, I ask my cousin. Nothing. We can't remember it anymore. She remembers something about "love" and I remember something about "tonight". That does not help us at all. I search them on Google, as many variations as I can think of. Google leads me to the song If Only Tonight We Could Sleep by The Cure. And I know for a fact that that was not the song I was looking for.
So I wait patiently for a few days. It slips out of my mind.
Then yesterday, my house phone is ringing. And ringing. And ringing.
You see, we usually don't answer the house phone anymore. Half the time it's some person looking for Maria, but there is no Maria living here. So, there you go.
So, we ignore the ringing as best we can.
I'm on Facebook and my cousin starts talking to me on that chat thing. She's like, "Hey, you wanna go to the park?"
So, I ask my parents and they're like "Okay."
So, blah blah blah, we talk about the park.
Then before she signs out she's like, "Oh. Yeah. I found the song."
And I'm like "REALLY?!?!?!?!"
So, I'm all excited as I wait for her to tell me what it is.
Rhythm of Love by Plain White T's.
So I'm like "What? How'd you find it?"
She says that she was watching MTV or something. You know, those music video count down things? And then they start playing this song and she's thinking, "This sound familiar." And then it hits her. IT'S THE SONG FROM THE FAIR!!!!!
And then she's all like, I tried to call you but your cell phone kept going to voice mail and nobody answered your house phone.
And I'm thinking, "SHOOT! I could've known earlier...."
So she signs out and I check the song on YouTube.
And I almost scream. SHE FOUND IT!!!
So, I've been listening to the song over and over as I write this. The happiness has stuck with me. THANK YOU EMILY!
Even though you'll probably never read this... THANK YOU!
She has no idea how happy I am now that our mystery song is no longer a mystery... :D
So here are the lyrics:

My head is stuck in the clouds
She begs me to come down
Says "Boy quit foolin' around"
I told her "I love the view from up here
The warm sun and wind in my ear
We'll watch the world from above
As it turns to the rhythm of love
"We may only have tonight
But till the morning sun you're mine all mine
Play the Music low and sway to the rhythm of love
My heart beats like a drum
A guitar string to the strum
A beautiful song to be sung
She's got blue eyes deep like the sea
That roll back when she's laughing at me
She rises up like the tide
The moment her lips meet mine
We may only have tonight
But till the morning sun you're mine all mine
Play the Music low and sway to the rhythm of love
When the moon is low
We can dance in slow motion
And all your tears will subside
All your tears will dry
And long after I've gone
You'll still be humming along
And I will keep you in my mind
The way you make love so fine
We may only have tonight
But till the morning sun you're mine all mine
Play the music low and sway to the rhythm of love

You can go ahead and listen to it HERE or wait until I have a play list set up...

  1. There's a Rhythm of Love by the Scorpions, too. Probably a little before your time though.

  2. Yay, Alex, the Scorpions and what a great song! (Second version, too!)

  3. @ Alex: Actually, when I was searching for the Plain White T's song on Youtube, those option things popped up saying "rhythm of love by scorpions". So, I've heard of it. :)

    @ Kittie: Thanks. Very catchy and still stuck in my head. Next time I'm on Youtube, I'll be listening to the Scorpion song. I'm curious. :)


Thanks for stopping by! I do read every comment and I reply to all the ones that elicit some sort of response. So if you want, you can check back in a couple days to see if I replied.(:
