Music Helps to Heal

I’ve found music speaks to me and my soul like nothing else can sometimes and so I was looking for songs about healing as mentioned in the previous post and found quite a few songs.

The two songs that stuck out to me and touched me most that I love and want to adapt as my motto now are the one that I mentioned in the previous post of Trouble by Lizz Wright and this one which is Imagine Me by Kirk Franklin.

Here are the lyrics to Kirk Franklin’s Imagine Me and I’m going to post the music video to his song in the next post here.

These songs speak to me like nothing has spoken to me in a long time and they are what I want and what I’m working for even more now than I was before because I have to stop being so hard on myself for my past  – it’s not helping anything.

Okay so here’s the lyrics:

KIRK FRANKLIN LYRICS

“Imagine Me”

Imagine me
Loving what I see when the mirror looks at me cause I
I imagine me
In a place of no insecurities
And I’m finally happy cause
I imagine me

Letting go of all of the ones who hurt me
Cause they never did deserve me
Can you imagine me?
Saying no to thoughts that try to control me
Remembering all you told me
Lord, can you imagine me?
Over what my mama said
And healed from what my daddy did
And I wanna live and not read that page again

[Chorus:]
Imagine me, being free, trusting you totally finally I can…
Imagine me
I admit it was hard to see
You being in love with someone like me
But finally I can…
Imagine me

Being strong
And not letting people break me down
You won’t get that joy this time around
Can you imagine me?
In a world (in a world) where nobody has to live afraid
Because of your love fears gone away
Can you imagine me?

[Bridge:]
Letting go of my past
And glad I have another chance
And my heart will dance
‘Cause I don’t have to read that page again

[Chorus x2]

[Vamp:]
Gone, gone, it’s gone, all gone

Trouble by Lizz Wright

Here’s one of the songs I found while looking for songs about healing and I have it on my myspace page if you would like to hear it.

Here are the lyrics to this song:

Trouble  by Lizz Wright

Trouble in the air
I don’t want it
But I’ve got to breathe
It´s coming through the door
Behind the shadows that surround me when I sleep
Somehow I know
that I can´t pray this away
I´ll keep my head down and get up on this train
This train
Ooo …

I´m gonna ride this pain like a wave
Lord, make me over I don´t wanna be afraid
And when my time is come and gone
I don´t wanna be the one who can´t let go

What if I get lost
I call out to you and you don´t save me?
The water comes too close
I don´t have the time to give
what you gave to me?
Well, as long as my name don´t change, I´ll be the same
I loved you more than time
Forever can´t take that away
Ooo …
Can´t take that away

Just let me ride this pain like a wave
Lord, make me over I don’t wanna be afraid
And when my time is come and gone
I don´t wanna be the one who can´t let go

Yeah, yeah, yeah

There is a river
Running by the train
It ain´t troubled
It´s just laying there, wading in the wind
Wading in the wind
Wading in the wind

Just let me ride this pain like a wave
Lord, make me over I don’t wanna be afraid
And when my time is come and gone
I don´t wanna be the one who can´t let go

Let me ride this pain like a wave
Make me over I don’t wanna be afraid
And when my time is come and gone
I don´t wanna be the one who can´t let go
Yeah, yeah
I´ll move on
Yeah, yeah
Ride
Yeah, yeah
Ooo, yeah …

Happy Birthday to My Birth Nephew!!!

Okay, first off for the posts that are pouring out of me now, it seems…

I want to say Happy Birthday to my nephew out there somewhere that my sister placed for adoption.  He’s 22 years old today and I hope he’s had a good life with a great family and always felt loved.

I hope that maybe someday if possible we can know about my birth nephew and my sister can see and talk with him.

Until then I pray for him and hope all’s well with him always just as I pray and hope all’s well with my girls always.

Happy Birthday to you, Christopher Scott, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing today…I hope you feel loved.

This is What I Need to Say One Day…

Hopefully sooner rather than later too…

Melissa Etheridge – The Letting Go Lyrics



I came here to let you know 

The letting go 

Has taken place 

I have held the winter's son 

Become one 

Set my pace 

Isn't that what we wanted all along 

Freedom like a stone 

But I can say goodbye 

Now that the passion's died 

Still it comes so slow 

The letting go

Piece by piece I take apart 

This complicated heart 

And I hope to find 

Something I can prove is real 

I can feel is truth 

I can say is mine 

That's all I ever wanted to be 

The closer that I got 

The further I could see 

But when lovers change 

And the night feels strange 

We choose our road 

The letting go

I came here to let you know 

The letting go 

Has taken place

If It Makes Me Stronger, Why Do I Feel Like a Baby?

They always say that the struggles and the heartaches make you stronger in life, but if they make you stronger then how come I feel like a wussy little baby dealing with them every single day of my life…

Am I really stronger or do I just cave and cry like a baby sooner than before these things happened to me…

Hmmm…there’s some things to ponder…

Whatever doesn’t kill me will only make me stronger, right…sometimes I wonder though…

I started thinking this because I just heard this song…

Artist/Band: Gary Allan
Lyrics for Song: Life Ain’t Always Beautiful
Lyrics for Album: Tough All Over

Life ain’t always beautiful
Sometimes it’s just plain hard
Life can knock you down, it can break your heart

Life ain’t always beautiful
You think you’re on your way
And it’s just a dead end road at the end of the day

But the struggle makes you stronger
And the changes make you wise
And happiness has it’s own way of takin’ it sweet time

[chorus]
No,life aint always beautiful
Tears will fall sometimes
Life aint always beautiful
But it’s a beautiful ride

Life aint always beautiful
Some days I miss your smile
I get tired of walkin’ all these lonely miles

And I wish for just one minute
I could see your pretty face
Guess I can dream, but life dont work that way

But the struggles makes me stronger
And the changes make me wise
And happiness has it’s own way of takin’ its sweet time

No, life aint always beautiful
But I know I’ll be fine
Hey, life aint always beautiful
But its a beautiful ride
What a beautiful ride

and then I just heard this song… Iris by Goo Goo Dolls.

  Verse 1

And I’d give up forever to touch you
Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You’re the closest to heaven that I’ll ever be
And I don’t want to go home right now
Verse 2

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
Cause sooner or later it’s over
I just don’t want to miss you tonight
Chorus

And I don’t want the world to see me
Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am
Verse 3

And you can’t fight the tears that ain’t coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything seems like the movies
Yeah you bleed just to know your alive

Chorus

And I don’t want the world to see me
Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am
Chorus

I don’t want the world to see me
Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am

After hearing Iris, then I wondered about how it says everything’s made to be broken so was my heart made to be broken, was I made to be broken…I don’t know that I agree with that even though somedays I may feel that way that everything including my heart and myself was made to be broken.

Just rambling thoughts here…

Why Is It So Hard?

Why does the pain hurt so bad sometimes  and

why does it feel like my heart will break in half

from all the heartache and pain on somedays

when I want to curl up and cry it all out

But why do the tears never stop

why do the tears not even seem to help sometimes

why do I fall into this hole of sadness

feeling like I don’t deserve what I have

Why do I feel like I have to keep punishing myself

for all the things I’ve done wrong

when I didn’t know they were wrong

why do I add to my own hurt so much

Why am I so mean to myself

when I have done nothing wrong

why does it never seem to go away

all this excruciating pain…

How do I let it go

and stop hurting myself even more

how do I stop this

when all I want is to escape this pain

Why do I always question myself

why do I always question everything

Am I good enough

Do I really deserve to have another child

What if I’m not a good mother

when I do have children that I raise

What if I won’t be able to do it right

or do it good enough?

What if I won’t be able to give equal attention

to my children I raise and those I placed

What if my children feel jealous of each other

What if those I parent resent those I placed or

what if those I placed resent those I parent

Do I deserve to have more children

Will I be a good mother to more children

Do I deserve any of this

Do I deserve to be happy?

Why do I always question

and hurt myself so much?

Oh, please, just let me be free
