Music Musings: Cool People by Chloe x Halle

 Music Musings: Cool People by ChloeXHalle


The music musing pick is Cool People by ChloexHalle


Music is a wonderful tool for helping us build our stress resilience and get through tough times, and this song definitely got me through some difficult moments. I am sure most people think of romantic love when listening to this but that was not the case for me. 


I was an only parent raising two teens and there were moments when the little boogers were trying all of my patience. The dynamic can be slightly different for a widow trying to do it all on her own and doubting herself every step of the way. Teenagers aren’t the most selfless beings when they are trying to figure their own life out. If you can imagine, I wanted to strangle my then 13 and 15-year-olds, but this song saved us all. 

I would just let it play and it reminded me of how precious and awesome they both are. It brought me back to when they were babies and made me think about them growing up in this very different and challenging world. I thought about how thankful I am for their smiles and laughter and spirit. It was like putting on armor to get back into being a mom. 

When you hold my hand it just reminds me of ... there's still cool people in the world - Chloe x Halle


I just love the haunting melody and the soothing effect it has on my sometimes angsty spirit. Take a moment to listen and spend some time with the lyrics below.  


Lyrics

Forgive me now my heart, it don't know where to start

My ceilings fell apart

I've been down on the regular, I've seen things with my retina

These old days I don't feel that much


But darling when you smile it's like the rain dries out

Now there's no more room for clouds

Got me singing Hallelu, oh Hallelu oh

When you hold my hand it just reminds me of

There's still cool people in the world


Here me far away, I'm done with yesterday

I'm living for today

So now I've been good on the regular

I've seen things even clearer

These new days I've lived it up Up


Cause darling when you smile it's like the rain dries out

Now there's no more room for clouds

Got me singing Hallelu, ah Hallelu oh

When you hold my hand it just reminds me of

There's still cool people in the world


Thought I'd never love, love like this before

I let go then I run and we run with the rivers

You helped me fly, you give me life


Cause darling when you smile it's like the rain dries out

Now there's no more room for clouds

Got me singing Hallelu, ah Hallelu oh

When you hold my hand it just reminds me of,

There's still cool people in the world
