I am officially (with permission) hijacking Fatal’s Music Appreciation Monday meme today.

Those of you who have been paying attention
will recognize that I’ve been playing along for a while now.

Today I’m just making it official.

Those of you who have been paying attention
will also, by now, recognize that I have a mad crush on Brandi Carlile.

She speaks to the heart of me.

Sometimes the only choice we have in life is in how we respond.
This song, for me, is the embodiment of that concept.

Response is a choice.

We all make our choices.

MY SONG

Lyrics:

Everything I do surrounds these pieces of my life that often change
Or maybe I’ve changed

Sometimes seeming happy can be self-destructive even when you’re sane
You’re only insane

Don’t bother waking me today

Here I am ~ I’m so young
I know I’ve been bitter, I’ve been jaded
I’m alone
Every day I bite my tongue
If you only knew my mind was full of razors
To cut you like a word if only sung
But this is My Song ~ It is My Song

I live every day like there’ll never be a last one till they’re gone
And they’re gone

And I’m too proud to beg for your attention and your friendship and your time
So you can come and get it from now on

Here I am ~ I’m so young
I know I’ve been bitter, I’ve been jaded
I’m alone
Every day I bite my tongue
If you only knew my mind was full of razors
To cut you like a word of only sung
But this is My Song ~ It is My Song

And it’s you that I…

It is you…

Here I am ~ I’m so young
I know I’ve been bitter, I’ve been jaded
I’m alone
Every day I bite my tongue
If you only knew my mind was full razors

I’m not sure I can take it
I have nothing strong to hold to
I’m way too old to hate you

My mind is full of razors
To cut you like a word if only sung

But this is My Song
