A Great Song And A New Idea!

Okay so I LOVE Maroon 5 and this is one of their newer songs, I heard it on the radio and teared up because I just left Jeremy after an amazing weekend...it immediately made me think of all of us and how we have to let go over and over but we still do it again because every single moment is worth it!

"Daylight" by Maroon 5
Here I am waiting, I'll have to leave soon
Why am I holding on?
We knew this day would come, we knew it all along
How did it come so fast?

This is our last night but it's late
And I'm trying not to sleep
Cause I know, when I wake, I will have to slip away

And when the daylight comes I'll have to go
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close

Oh-woah, oh-woah, oh-woah
Oh-woah, oh-woah, oh-woah

Here I am staring at your perfection
In my arms, so beautiful
The sky is getting bright, the stars are burning out
Somebody slow it down

This is way too hard, cause I know
When the sun comes up, I will leave
This is my last glance that will soon be memory

And when the daylight comes I'll have to go
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close


I never wanted to stop because I don't wanna start all over, start all over,
I was afraid of the dark but now it's all that I want, all that I want, all that I want

And when the daylight comes I'll have to go
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close

And when the daylight comes I'll have to go
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close

AND I need a little advice!! I want to get more involved on my college campus and I noticed today on the list of student groups there aren't any for military SOs. There's an Air Force base near where I go to school and I know there are a lot of SOs at my college, so I thought maybe creating like a student support group of military spouses, fiances, and SOs where we do outreach to the community! What do you think and what advice do you have for starting a student group??

I think that's a great idea! i would definitely start by finding fellow SOs who are interested...i know at my school to start a formal group you have to have a certain number of people sign the form you get to become official. I love the song btw :)

Okay that's something to find out! Thanks for the advice! :) glad you liked it!

I love that song and I also don't have a clue how you would even start! I know when I was in Med school there were a couple military SO's and they just started an informal thing where they met up at coffee shop and it progressed from there then the coffee started a Military SO evening once an evening every week and it progressed from there it wasn't branch specific though just a girlfriend/boyfriend let our hair down and shout, cry and scream for two hours sort of thing while the rest listen and cry and laugh and kick your butt back on track type thing - I wasn't an SO at that point but it really did help when dad got deployed.

Yea I was thinking last night, why limit it to SOs? Lots of people have parents or loved ones in the military-I want this to be an inter-branch family sort of where we all go through the same stuff no matter what rank or branch, it is all tough! I'm excited to get this going!

I have no idea how you would go about startin that but I think it's an awesome idea! Maybe try and find a few other people to join with you and y'all can talk to the dean or headmaster or someone!!

I am working on finding some people! Thanks and I'm honestly doing this because of this site...it is such an awesome support group and I want more people to feel this kind of love and understanding!

I agree! It's a great support system. Great great idea and best of luck!
