Songs That Mean Something to Me

Shakira’s “What We Said” has a pretty strong point, where two people say and do things that can’t be changed and change them forever.  People don’t realize their actions and things they say have such an impact on those they love and share things with.  If only we would know ahead of time what we should do, the right way.

Christina Aguilera’s song “Stronger Than Ever” hits close to me and what I have gone through.  The actions of someone I love affected me.  It is not his fault I reacted the way I eventually did, but I had to find myself again after being so lost in trying to do right by him and help him.

Demi Lovato’s song “Old Ways” says she had to change from her old ways and find herself again.  Just like Christina’s song affected me, this one does as well, for this very reason.  Sometimes we get lost in trying to be something or someone we are not, just to please others and what they think we should be like.  You have to pull yourself up and find the real you and be happy in who and what you are.

Just some pretty powerful songs (at least to me) that I wanted to share.

I really enjoy music by Christina.  She has a great voice.  Was listening to her album, Bionic, and came across this song.  It hits me deep, especially where I am in my life right now.  Enjoy!

I Am

I am timid
And I am oversensitive
I am a lioness
I am tired and defensive
You take me in your arms
And I fold into you
I have insecurities
You show me I am beautiful

Love me or leave me just take it or leave it
It’s not that I’m needy just need you to see me
Take me, free me, see through to the core of me
Take me, free me, there will be no more pretending

I am temperamental
And I have imperfections
And I am emotional
I am unpredictable
I am naked
I am vulnerable
I am a woman
I am opening up to you

Love me or leave me, just take it or leave it
It’s not that I’m needy, just need you to see me
Take me, free me, see through to the core of me
Take me, free me, there will be no more pretending

Now I stand before you with my heart in my hands
I’m asking you to take me just the way that I am

Please lay down your arms
Do you know me?
Make me feel safe from harm

Oh just take me, free me, see through to the core of me
Take me, free me, there will be no more pretending

I am temperamental
And I have imperfections
And I am emotional
There’ll be no more pretending

Today’s song is a song that reminds me of summertime.

Giving you a little country today.  Love this chillin’ out song for the summer. Imagine sitting out by the lake or the sea, soaking up the sun and enjoying with family and/or friends.  Maybe some drinks and great music to make it complete.  ❤

Enjoy!! 🙂
