1 Song, 1000 Memories.

Updated: Feb 2

They say one soundtrack has a memory of its own. How amazing would it be if all our memories were composed into songs!

“I'm on my way

I still remember these old country lanes

When we did not know the answers

And I miss the way you make me feel, and it's real

When we watched the sunset over the castle on the hill

Over the castle on the hill”

-Castle on the hill, Ed Sheeran

Imagine sitting around a bonfire on a beach late at night, singing songs with your friends while roasting marshmallows and remembering the old days. I’m sure everyone, be it Ed Sheeran or us, wants this to happen at some point in their life. To reconnect with old friends, talk about all those funny, happy and sad moments in life that they shared and wish that they could go back in time to them.

“All of the rumors, all of the fights

But we always find a way to make it out alive

Thought we were goin' strong, thought we were holdin' on

Aren't we?”

-History, 1 Direction

Don’t all of us wonder how far we have come from where we had started and how fast time passes by? We make so many memories as life goes on but sometimes, we forget to hold on to those precious old ones. We make and break various bonds over the years and some day while sipping coffee, we remember those old bonds and smile thinking where they might be now and whether they would still remember us. We forget that those good old days are just a phone call away. 1D just wanted to remind us to hold on to those memories as one never knows when they might come crashing back, all together.

“Let's write our story

And let's sing our songs

Let's hang our pictures on the wall

All these precious moments

That we carved in stone

Are only memories after all”

-Memories, Shawn Mendes

Nobody stops you from making memories and living your life, so let’s try to live our life to its fullest and capture all those memories and precious moments in our hearts.

“We keep this love in a photograph

We made these memories for ourselves

Where our eyes are never closing

Hearts are never broken

And time's forever frozen, still”

-Photograph, Ed Sheeran

All those pictures make me wish we could freeze time and live the same moment again and again. Who knew that when we were dancing in the rain while singing on the top of our lungs, we were making memories?

“He said: "One day you'll leave this world behind

So live a life you will remember"

My father told me when I was just a child

"These are the nights that never die"

My father told me”

-The Nights, Avicii

Stop. Wait and take hold of time as “these are the nights that never die”. Make sure each and every day counts and you make memories worth remembering and reliving over and over again in your mind and heart.

“Here's to the ones that we got

Cheers to the wish you were here, but you're not

'Cause the drinks bring back all the memories

Of everything we've been through

Toast to the ones here today

Toast to the ones that we lost on the way

'Cause the drinks bring back all the memories

And the memories bring back, memories bring back you”

-Memories, Maroon 5

Here’s an ode to ourselves and all those memories that we have created over the years!
