My new fav song

So, last week was what I dubbed concert week. On Wednesday, Alex and I went to see Keane and then on Friday AND Saturday I went to Bon Jovi (hooray for winning tickets off the radio to the second show!).

Anyway, all of these concerts were super awesome. When of the best parts was seeing Ingrid Michaelson open for Keane. I only knew that one song, "The Way I Am." Turns out, she is way way good. I think she might be one of my new faves. Alex came home and downloaded all of her albums for me, which have been on constant repeat since Wednesday.

The point of this whole story is there one song that I just about flipped out when I heard it in concert. Um, the song talks about knitting! Everything about this song is great, but knitting too? Uh, yes please.

So, I can't help it, I am sharing the lyrics. I am like a teenage girl. I think I have listened to this song four times just today!

The Hat

Written by Ingrid Michaelson

I knitted you a hat all blue and gold
To keep your ears warm from the Binghamton cold
It was my first one and it was too small
It didn't fit you at all, but you wore it just the same

I remember the first time we danced
I remember tunneling through the snow like ants
What I don't recall is why I said,
"I simply can't sleep in this tiny bed with you anymore."

I should tell you that you were my first love

So it's Christmas time, it's been three years
And someone else is knitting things for your ears

I have come to learn I'll only see you interrupting my dreams at night
And that's alright. And that's alright. And that's alright. And that's alright

I should tell you that you were my first love

And it's alright. And it's alright. And it's alright

(And it's alright.) We were seventeen again together
(And it's alright.) We were seventeen again together
(And it's alright.) We were seventeen again together

I should tell you that you were my first love
I should tell you that you were my first love

We were seventeen again
We were seventeen again
We were seventeen again
