My life in the lyrics
Is there something someone else has said that describes something about you?
I found my words through the words of others
I was searching through some of my old journals and found this- I was staying at a retreat (well, that is what we will call it). During this retreat, I had to take a class (that is what we will call it), and my teacher (you can call her that), gave me an assignment during my term (you get the point). The assignment was for me to tell her about me, using other people’s words.
This was what I turned in to her, and for some reason this assignment got me writing, my own words again and in away helped me keep my sanity-while I was dealing with life, even after I got home from my little ‘retreat’.
My life in the Lyrics
Blackbird singing in the dead of night-Take these broken wings and learn to fly-All your life-You were only waiting for this moment to arise. The Beatles, Blackbird
She said I don't know if I've ever been good enough -I'm a little bit rusty, and I think my head is caving in -And I don't know if I've ever been really loved -By a hand that's touched me, well I feel like something's Gonna give -And I'm a little bit angry. Matchbox 20, Push
I hurt myself today -To see if I still feel -I focus on the pain -The only thing that's real -The needle tears a hole-The old familiar sting -Try to kill it all away -But I remember everything -What have I become -My sweetest friend -Everyone I know goes away In the end -And you could have it all ,My empire of dirt -I will let you down -I will make you hurt. Johnny Cash, Hurt
That's me in the corner-That's me in the spotlight-Losing my religion-Trying to keep up with you-And I don't know if I can do it-Oh no, I've said too much-I haven't said enough. I thought that I heard you laughing-I thought that I heard you sing-I think, I thought, I saw you try. REM, Losing My Religion
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes, and she's gone. The Beatles, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
Slow down you crazy child-You're so ambitious for a juvenile-But then if you're so smart tell me why are you still so afraid? Slow down you're doing fine-You can't be everything you want to be-Before your time-Although it's so romantic on the borderline tonight (tonight)-Too bad but it's the life you lead-You're so ahead of yourself-That you forgot what you need-Though you can see when you're wrong-You know you can't always see when you're right(you're right) You got your passion you got your pride -But don't you know that only fools are satisfied?-Dream on but don't imagine they'll all come true. Billy Joel, Vienna
Hey ! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me, I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to. Bob Dylan, Mr. Tambourine Man
When you feel your life ain't worth living, you've got to stand up and take a look around you then a look way up to the sky. Blind Melon, Change
I'll find my way through night and day, Cause I know I just can't stay here in heaven. Time can bring you down- Time can bend your knees. Time can break your heart, have you begging please, begging please. Eric Clapton, Tears in Heaven
The deeper you stick it in
your vein the deeper the thoughts, there's no more pain- I'm in heaven, I'm a
god- I'm everywhere, I feel so hot- It's
not a habit, it's cool, I feel alive- If you don't have it you're on the other
side- I'm not an addict (maybe that's a lie)- It's over now, I'm cold, alone-
I'm just a person on my own- Nothing means a thing to me
(Nothing means a thing to me) Free me, leave me- Watch me as I'm going down-Free me, see me- Look at me, I'm falling and I'm falling. K’s Choice, Not an Addict
I'm all out of faith, this is how I feel- I'm cold and I am shamed lying naked on the floor- illusion never changed into something real- I'm wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn. Natalie Imbruglia, Torn
I'm a picker I'm a grinner
I'm a lover And I'm a sinner I play my music in the sun- I'm a joker I'm a
smoker I'm a midnight toker I get my lovin' on the run ooo ooooo
You're the cutest thing That I ever did see I really love your peaches Want to shake your tree. Steve Miller Band, The Joker
If you were told to describe yourself-thoughts-life using the words of someone else, how do you think you would do it? Is there a particular quote or lyric that fits your personality-life or situation?
