For 2017

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

I don't know what exactly strikes me about this song, but I love it. Yes I do, the younger girl hasn't learned her lessons yet, but the older one has. The older one has decided to take care of herself and not go with someone who hurts her, the younger girl still has that lesson to learn. Self confidence I guess.

IT'S POWERFUL!


Artist: Reba McEntire Song: Because Of You ( Kelly Clarkson )Album: Reba Duets

I will not make the same mistakes that you did
I will not let myself cause my heart so much misery
I will not break the way you did
You fell so hard
I've learned the hard way,
to never let it get that far
Because of you I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you I learned to play on the safe side
So I don't get hurt
Because of you I find it hard to trust
Not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you I am afraid I lose my way
And it's not too long before you point it out I cannot cry
Because I know that's weakness in your eyes
I'm forced to fake a smile, a laugh
Every day of my life
My heart can't possibly break
When it wasn't even whole to start with
Because of you I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you I learned to play on the safe side
So I don't get hurt
Because of you I find it hard to trust
Not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you I am afraid I watched you die
I heard you cry Every night in your sleep
I was so young
You should have known better than to lean on me
You never thought of anyone else
You just saw your pain
And now I cry In the middle of the night
For that same damn thing
Because of you I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you I learned to play on the safe side
So I don't get hurt
Because of you I find it hard to trust
Not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you I am afraid
Because of you Because of you
Different stages of growth I suppose. I'm not even sure if my interpretation is correct, but then again, does it matter?
I just like the power of the song.
Love,
Chatty
