Precious Embrace #Playlist Track 2 #Matchbox20

I know, it’s been a long time! I’m seriously behind on this playlist series. But I’m ready to get back in the habit. The music that drives me to write is also driving me to share it with you. So, forgive my absence and my lack of posting, and lets get on with the playlists!

If you know anything about me, know that I’m a huge Matchbox 20 and Rob Thomas fan. He’s such an incredible song writer–or, actually, just a fabulous writer! Everything he releases inspires me in some way or another. I went to a Rob Thomas show a few months ago and fell in love again while watching his performance. He’s as talented on stage performing as he is with a pen when writing new music.

This song Overjoyed is one of my all time favorite MB20 songs. The first time I heard it, Johnny and Ali’s relationship immediately came to mind. Precious Embrace starts as Johnny being the pursuer in the relationship. This song helps to highlight his feelings, but as Johnny and Ali’s story warms, she becomes dependent on his steadiness and security. She’s also falling in love with him, although it’s against her better judgement. I’ll let the lyrics tell you the rest. It’s really a beautiful song.

OVERJOYED – Matchbox 20

Feeling my hands start shaking
Hearing your voice I’m overjoyed
I’m sorry but I have no choice, you’re only getting better
Maybe you have your reasons
Maybe you’re scared, you’re feeling down
Are you crying when there’s no one around?
Oh then maybe, maybe if you hold me baby
Let me come over I would tell you secrets nobody knows
I cannot overstate it, I will be overjoyed
That smile on your face like a summer
The way that your hand keeps touching mine
Let me be the one to make it right
And maybe, maybe let me hold you baby
Let me come over I would tell you secrets nobody knows
I cannot overstate it, I will be overjoyed
And if you want, we’ll share this life
Any time you need a friend, I’m gonna be by your side
When nobody understands you, well I do
So maybe maybe, let me hold you baby
Let me come over I would tell you secrets God only knows
I cannot over state it, I will be overjoyed
Baby let me come over I would tell you secrets nobody knows
I cannot over state it, I will be overjoyed
Yeah I will be overjoyed,
Oh I will be overjoyed
