Sunday Mornings

I was supposed to watch the Maroon 5 concert come Wednesday (March 5) at the Araneta Coliseum. I have waited for months for my favorite boy band to visit my country, but sadly I have to go out of town on a business trip on the day of their concert (sigh). So I guess I would have to bid Adam, James, Jesse, Mickey and Matt good luck and I am very sure they will rock on that day!

Don't worry boys...I Won't Go Home Without You.

This is also re-post of a previous article I wrote way back in 2007.




I love Sunday mornings. It's lazy, it's lethargic and absolutely fantastic. It gives me a brief respite from the hustle and bustle of motherhood. I get to have a late breakfast, linger over my coffee, and wonder how I'll spend my sunday afternoon. Probably tinker away in my laptop and update my blog.


This particular song by Maroon 5 is from the album "Songs about Jane" pretty much describe how today feels.

Here's the lyrics of the song, you might want to sing along.

Sunday morning rain is falling
Steal some covers share some skin
Clouds are shrouding us in moments unforgettable
You twist to fit the mold that I am in
But things just get so crazy living life gets hard to do
And I would gladly hit the road get up and go if I knew
That someday it would lead me back to you
That someday it would lead me back to you

That may be all I need
In darkness she is all I see
Come and rest your bones with me
Driving slow on Sunday morning
And I never want to leave

Fingers trace your every outline
Paint a picture with my hands
Back and forth we sway like branches in a storm
Change the weather still together when it ends

That may be all I need
In darkness she is all I see
Come and rest your bones with me
Driving slow on Sunday morning
And I never want to leave

But things just get so crazy living life gets hard to do
Sunday morning rain is falling and I'm calling out to you
Singing someday it'll bring me back to you
Find a way to bring myself back home to you

And you may not know
That may be all I need
In darkness she is all I see
Come and rest your bones with me
Driving slow…


Lovely jamming with yah guys! Will catch you another time.

@@@Jen - Yeah I do love all their songs. Well, I guess I'll just have to see them in my dreams for now. Hehe. Hope you enjoy the concert.

@@@Lena - Thank you my dear, I do hope I get to catch them next time. I am hoping I might get a glimpse of them at the airport before I hop on my plane. But don't mind me I'm just delusional. Hehehe. You have a wonderful week tooo! =)

@@@Preetilata - I agree it has a charm and aroma of it's own. Loved the way you described it. ;D

I think I must have sang this song a million times and never get tired listening to it. Glad you had good time reading and listening and singing along too=)

Love and huggggsss back to you.

Colin - Hey stranger! Glad to see you back here. Thank you for the tag and I think I owe you tons of it already, not to mention some others too...sooooo sorry. I am hoping to do them very soon.

Yup, Sod's Law was the culprit hehe or TL? Can't find the difference sometimes LOL! Ahhh another time perhaps. =(

Hugggggss and Cheers! Clink!

Hi Sophia,
I'm so sorry that you could not make it to the long waited concert.
They should have arranged for it to happen during the weekend.

Yes, Sunday morning is fantastic, inexplicable, having breakfast with my family while watching SpongeBob Squarepants. The strange thing is, 90% of the workers in my work place love to work on Sundays because of the double or triple pay they'll be getting. Anyway, different people value life differently.

Thats a lovely song & love the lyrics too...so meaningful...Sundays indeed are special to everyone of us...sad to her you couldn't make it to the concert but will hope you make it next time...have a nice time!

@@@Sameera - Well Friday is a good day for me too, it's the start of my weekend. LOL! Got back safe now. Love and hugggss back to yah.

@@@Zunnur - Well, I guess I have to catch them another time. I guess our Sunday mornings are pretty much the same - breakfast with the family - that's priceless!

Sad but true, but like you said different strokes for different folks. Hope they realize sooner what they're missing.

@@@Kalyan - Glad you liked the song and the lyrics too. That's simply one of my favorite Maroon 5 songs. =)

Yeah, there's always a next time. Have a nice day!
