Taking the challenge…

Ek is…  Ontbloot’s challenge was: As jy ‘n liedjie kon kies wat amper ‘n “definisie” van jou is, wat sou dit wees, en hoekom?

I think the song to most define me would be:

The Story by Brandi Carlile.

The Lyrics:

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
And baby I broke them all for you
Oh because even when I was flat broke
You made me feel like a million bucks
You do and I was made for you

You see the smile that’s on my mouth
It’s hiding the words that don’t come out
And all of my 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
Oh yeah and its true, that I was made for you

****

So why The Story? Here is my explanation:  

  • So many stories of where I’ve been and how I got to where I am – Personally, I feel I’ve been through a lot. Life has thrown me a few curve balls which made me grow up very quickly but that life experience is valuable. And I’m glad it happened that way.
  • But these stories don’t mean anything when you’ve got no one to tell them to – That’s my career right there… However, it’s something I have to get back into.
  • And all of my friends who think that I’m blessed. They don’t know my head is a mess. – Enough said.
  • No, they don’t know who I really am – My friends know things about me, but not everything. Only a select few really know everything.
  • And I was made for you… – I’d like to think that somewhere in the wide world, there is someone who I was made for… and yes, turns out this chick, who doesn’t believe in fairytales, does have a romantic side to her.

So, that’s my story… just thought I’d share.

Have an awesome afternoon.
Scarlet.
