Precious Embrace #Playlist
Track 1 #BlueOctober

Calling You by Blue October is one of Johnny’s songs. It’s the perfect expression of the overpowering love he feels for Ali even before they’re really together. I think it helps express how he’s bursting at the seams to be with her and love her, and I mean love her openly. He wants to scream it to the world, but he quickly realizes he needs to back off because she’s not yet ready for a relationship.

This song reminds me of all the wonderful feelings people have at the beginning of a new relationship. That shiny, sparkly ‘newness’ that takes over when they’re just starting to realize they’re in love. You know the one, that giddy, ‘fluttering butterflies in your stomach’ feeling you get and you can’t wipe the stupid grin off your face when you think about your new love.

This is how Johnny feels as he’s trying to gently work his way into Ali’s life.

Calling You by Blue October

There’s something that I can’t quite explain
I’m so in love with you
You’ll never take that away
And if I’ve said it a hundred times before
Expect a thousand more
You’ll never take that away

Well expect me to be
Calling you to see
If you’re OK when I’m not around
Asking “if you love me”
I love the way you make it sound
Calling you to see
Do I try too hard to make you smile?
To make us smile

[Chorus:] I will keep calling you to see
If you’re sleeping, are you dreaming
If you’re dreaming, are you dreaming of me
I can’t believe you actually picked me

I thought that the world had lost it’s sway
It’s so hard sometimes
Then I fell in love with you
Then came you
And you took that away
It’s not so difficult
The world is not so difficult
You take away the old
Show me the new
And I feel like I can fly when I stand next to you
So while I’m on this phone
A hundred miles from home
I’ll take the words you gave me and send them back to you

I only want to see
If you’re OK when I’m not around
Asking “if you love me”
I love the way you make it sound
Calling you to see
Do I try too hard to make you smile?
To make us smile
