Tuesday Tune: The Story

Yes, I have blogged this before, but that was for a challenge .  The challenge was to choose a song that defined you… and well, I felt this one did.

See, everyone has a story… a past, present and a future and sometimes if we are lucky we get to hear their stories. Today’s Tuesday Tune is about that… because we all have a story. Some stories we share willingly and some stories we don’t. We keep them to ourselves. We all have scars and we all have experience life and well, who do you share your stories with?

For the challenge I had to say why I thought the song reflected me, and here is what I said:

  • 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.

Looking back on this now a few years later (I wrote the post in 2011) my views in life are pretty much the same, except on the last point….

I still have no regrets about the curve balls. I still need to get the stories out there, I haven’t sat down and put them to paper… yet.  I am blessed and sometimes I still feel a mess, everyone does I am sure. Only one or two people know who I am really am, because I don’t “share” easily… and well,  I am not so optimistic about that last point, but I am always open to suggestions. LOL!

So there you have it… Have a happy Tuesday and enjoy my Tuesday Tune. 🙂

 

The Story
Brandie Carlile

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 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
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, well it’s true… that
I was made for you…

  1. Interesting. In my case I thing a number of tunes, songs, melodies, or major works of music have dominated a particular phase, but it is hard to choose one above the rest.
