Just like some of my friends, if not most, I followed American Idol Season 11 closely from day 1 til the very end. I did the same for The Voice too, since I became a fan of Dia Frampton and developed a girly crush on Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, both at the same time, but that’s beside the point. Maybe I just had too much free time the past months but I have to blog about how much I loved that song by Phillip Phillips.
Settle down, it’ll all be clear
Don’t pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down
If you get lost, you can always be found
Just know you’re not alone
Cause I’m going to make this place your home ♪ ♪ ♫ ♪
I always say I’m a fan of country music. So perhaps that’s one reason. Another is that, I’m always looking for “home” and in the process, I’ve made more homes than what is conventional.
Hands touch, eyes meet, I remember perfectly the night we fell in love.
Everywhere we go is home baby home, home is you’re with me
Everything we touch is love, baby love, love is all we need
Is all we need, is all we need.
I don’t need a roof over my head while I’ve got your hands
To shade the sun away from my face
I don’t need a space to call my own, to scatter records on my floor,
You’re my secret place.
Skip to 1:29 to get the song started, though why would you do that, when there is just amazing Dia cuteness for those first minute and a half.
If you would rather just listen to the music, here is a link to that video.
Yes, I’m also a Jessica fan, what after all those goosies-inducing (we’re all using “goosies” now as per JLo) performances, and most especially that duet with Jennifer Holliday, but really, we didn’t mind that much that she did not win. We love her no matter what and it IS American Idol after all.
As a side story, I loved the following articles on the Jessica Sanchez vs Phillip Phillips hulaballoo.
- If You Love ‘American Idol,’ Vote For Jessica Sanchez
- Why Phillip Phillips won American Idol Season 11
I especially love that last article. Wow, amazing, an entire scientific paper on why Phillip Phillips won! I can’t but help I did the paper myself! The graphs were just amazing (big wide eyes here)
All those being said, I’m not bitter about all this. I like them both, and really, now, I don’t care anymore. There is no place in music for that kind of bitterness, is just what I think.
