I was left to my own devices. . . .

It's another Music Monday, here on shellasaurusrex and I have to admit I do like this feature so far. For a very, very long time music was the love of my life. I made mixtapes daily, had a song of the week and when I lost myself I lost interest. Slowly yet surely, 2013 has been my year of regrowth. So here is the song I've been feeling since I heard it a few weeks ago. (Crystal S. this is all your fault for posting it on your wall!)

"But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all?
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
You've been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?"
Pompeii - Bastille

Now to some I could see this song being depressing and I just don't find that to be the case at all. I think the song is very, very upbeat and after listening to it once, I want to hear it again. We all know what happened to the city Pompeii, that the song takes it's title from. Unlike the city of Pompeii, I don't want to stay dormant, lost in ash forever. I want to go for a run, take a hike and plan, plan, plan. This song gives me hope, that even though it seems like nothing is changing, slowly and surely it is. Pompeii didn't stay hidden away for ever and neither will I.

What do you think of the song? What song is stuck in your brain this week? Tell me in the comments!
