What It Means To Me To Be 1 Of The Kids In The Street
What It Means To Be 1 Of The Kids In The Street
this is post I am writing intertwines the Plain White T’s and also the All American Rejects.
What does it mean to you to be a kid in the street?
to me it means that you are recalling the old times in your life that made you happy. The times that made me smile and act like a kid again at heart. Those moments in life where all you can do is just hide from the world the thoughts you are thinking, just be, & also bare the big grin & smile on your face. To look outside a window & stare out into space & wonder what or where you are in your life at this point & wonder what you want to be really doing for the rest of your life.
The Kids in the Street to me reminds me of the Plain White T’s and the Wonders Of The Younger. To finding the part of yourself that you threw or hid away & thought you really lost. That favorite toy you had as a kid like a robot, a doll or even just your Legos or the favorite film you had like Ferris Bueller’s Day Off or even Goonies or like Drop Dead Fred. One of the times in your life where you can also realize your age, where you are & the responsibilities we wish we could just toss a side for a day. Just live your life to the fullest in just 1 whole day & do what ever we wanted & throw every last care away. To also just live in the moment of the Life we have & do something totally spontaneous no one would guess we’d do. To find people in our lives who make us also want to be better people to further who we are & yet also make us want to do some good in this world if we can.
Sometimes I wish I could be truly young again like my little nephew in this picture he probably doesn’t have any cares as of this moment in his life he is so young that he is just trying to live each day as it comes.
The Kids In The Street is the AAR’s new album coming out March 26th, 2012 actually & 2 of there songs on the album have been released out so far one is called BeeKeeper’s Daughter & the other is called: SomeDay’s Gone. The story they say behind the album is pretty nostalgic & pretty deep & actually had me pondering & trying to remember what it means to be a Kid In The Street too.
