The Story - Brandi Carlile

If you have never heard of Brandi Carlile, stop what you are doing, and listen to her. One of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard and such amazing lyrics.  I love the power that is found in music. I love the lyrics to her song, "The Story" -


All of these lines across my face

Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I've been
And how I got to where I am


But these stories don't mean anything
When you've got no one to tell them to
It's true, I was made for you


I climbed across the mountain tops
Swam all across the ocean blue
I crossed all the lines, and I broke all the rules
But,baby, I broke them all for you


Because even when I was flat broke
You made me feel like a million bucks
You do, I was made for you


You see the smile that's on my mouth
It's hiding the words that don't come out
All of our friends who think that I'm blessed
They don't know my head is a mess


No they don't know who I really am
And they don't know what I've been through
Like you do, and I was made for you


All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I've been
And how I got to where I am


Oh but these stories don't mean anything
When you've got no one to tell them to
It's true, I was made for you


And it's true that I was made for you

Sometimes music helps you say something that words alone can't, maybe one day I can have that kind of gift. I am tired tonight. I am tired of feeling the same emotion over and over again, does that ever happen to anyone else? You think you have it licked and it sneaks up behind you and there you go again:) Well, tomorrow is another day and I'm hoping for a good one . . .
