Best Concert EVER!!!!

I'm still gathering pictures so I can write a post about last night's concert. It was an amazing night!!!!

While you're all waiting on pins and needles for my concert report I thought I'd share one of my favorite songs of Blue October's new album, Approaching Normal. It's called Jump Rope. This song was written for Justin's little girl and it's a perfect guide to life.



Remember how you used to say
You couldn't wait till tomorrow for a brand new day
And no fuss when you had to ride the bus
You just add a little blush
To paralyze your school crush
Now you're older and the weight is on your shoulder
Make the world a little colder
No more hidin' in the old day
Be strong, don't give up hope
It will get hard


Life's like a jump rope


Up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, yeah
Cause it will get hard
Remember, life's like a jump rope
Up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, yeah
It will get hard
Cause it will get hard



There'll be a bump there will be a bruise

There'll be alarms and there will be a snooze
There'll be a path that you will have to choose
There'll be a win and there will be a lose
And you gotta hold your head up high and
Watch all the negative a-go by
Don't ever be ashamed to cry
You go ahead!



Cause life's like a jump rope

Up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, yeah
It will get hard
Remember, life's like a jump rope
Up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, yeah
It will get hard
Come on, woo!




I want to tell you that everything will be okay
That everything will eventually turn itself to gold
So keep pushing through it all
Don't follow, lead the way
Don't lose yourself or your hope


Cause life's like a jump rope(Up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, yeah)

You stomp your feet so hard you make it pound
Raise you back up to the top
And now we're never coming down
Up down, stop your feet spinning round
Clap hands to the rhythm and you slip down
Stomp your feet so hard you make it pound
Raise you back up to the top
And now we're never coming down



Up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, yeah
It will get hard
Remember, life's like a jump rope
Up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, yeah
It will get hard
Cause it will get hard(Up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, yeah)
Life's like a jump rope
Up, down, up, down, up, down, up, down, yeah
Woah, cause life's like a jump rope

Here's a video of Jump Rope from the Las Vegas concert~
