You Are My Spring and My Beauty

For the last couple of days, I've been listening to one special CD from start to finish, and over and over again. I don't want it to ever end. Elizabeth must be sick of it. I'm sorry, Elizabeth. But, no: she's not sick of it because she understands. She knows what this is all about. And when I'm not listening to it, I'm holding onto it tightly, smiling over the lovely cover of sweethearts and peaches, reading the song titles from top to bottom and then from bottom to top. Memorizing the shade of red, imagining her hands putting it all together.

Here's a picture:

1. "Elected" — Inouk
2. "The Wings" — Gustavo Santaolalla
3. "Wild Horses" — The Rolling Stones
4. "That's What Angels Can Do" — The Wood Brothers
5. "Mockingbird" — Ryan Adams & the Cardinals
6. "On the Mend" — Foo Fighters
7. "Make It Till Monday" — The Verve
8. "Sister" — Calla
9. "Little One" — Beck
10. "7 Keys" — Aqualung
11. "Unplayed Piano" — Damien Rice with Lisa Hannigan
12. "Always Love" — Nada Surf
13. "Live It Up" — John Legend
14. "For Once In My Life" — Stevie Wonder

Yes, I am the luckiest guy in the world. Good stuff.

Nice compilation! And only one bad song.
