“My Fault. Your Mistake.” – Lex Land

You gave me good steps to follow
And I wish I could fill your shoes.
I wish the apple fell closer to the tree.
You gave me a branch to perch on
But it’s time for me to take control.
This isn’t about you, just gotta try life on my own.

And when I see fathers proud and smiling
I choke from shame and grief,
And only wish I could be a source for your relief.
We’ve both done each other so much wrong.
I’ve made mistakes too big to fix.
And maybe regardless of what I want,
We just don’t mix.

And if you knew about my songs
Maybe this would mean something to you.
The only thing I care about,
The only thing I wanna do,
The only thing that sets me apart,
The only thing that makes me me…

Slowly spelling out my heart,
For everyone to read.

And I’m sorry that I hurt you,
And I’m sorry that I let you hurt me,
But your little girl
Is gonna change the world.
You’ll see…

You’ll see.

Colossians 3:12-14

So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline.  Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense.  Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you.  An regardless of what else you put on, wear love.  It’s your basic, all-purpose garment.  Never be without it.

“Faith, hope, and love are some good things He gave us.  And the greatest is love.”

– Alan Jackson

Ecclesiastes 3:1-10

There is a time for everything
And a season for every activity under heaven:
A time to be born and a time to die,
A time to plant and a time to uproot,
A time to kill and a time to heal,
A time to tear down and a time to build,
A time to weep and a time to laugh,
A time to mourn and a time to dance,
A time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
A time to embrace and a time to refrain,
A time to search and a time to give up,
A time to keep and a time to throw away,
A time to tear and a time to mend,
A time to be silent and a time to speak,
A time to love and a time to hate,
A time for war and a time for peace.
What does the worker gain from his toil?

World of Chances – Demi Lovato

You’ve got a face for a smile you know
A shame you waste it when you’re breaking me slowly
But I’ve got a world of chances for you
I’ve got a world of chances for you
I’ve got a world of chances
Chances that you’re burning through

I’ve got a paper and pen
I go to write you goodbye and that’s when I know
I’ve got a world of chances for you
I’ve got a world of chances for you
I’ve got a world of chances
Chances that you’re burning through

Oh, I’m going my own way
My faith has lost its strength again
Oh, it’s been too hard to say
We’ve fallen off the edge again
We’re at an end
We’re at an end

Maybe you’ll call me someday
Hear the operator say the number’s no good
And that she had a world of chances for you
She had a world of chances for you
She had a world of chances
Chances you were burning through
Chances you were burning through
Chances you were burning through

You’ve got a face for a smile you know

James 4:10-12 (KJV Bible)

“Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.  He that speaketh evil of [his] brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.  There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?

Here, Kitty Kitty – Little Blue Pill Lyrics

Here kitty kitty here kitty kitty here,
Here kitty kitty here kitty kitty here,
Don’t come close, don’t come near,
Have I made myself clear?

It’s ok to want me, but you want nothing else,
Sitting back and plotting is a crime in itself,
I can see the writing ’cause I wrote it on the wall,
Does 50 feet or less mean anything to you at all?

You can’t conquer and divide just because I’m open wide,
You can’t catch me though you try,
You can kiss this goodbye.

Don’t come close, don’t come near,
Have I made myself clear?

You cannot control what you do with your mind,
But you’re crazy if you think that you can touch the merchandise.

You can’t conquer and divide just because I’m open wide,
You can’t catch me though you try,
You can kiss this goodbye.

You can’t conquer and divide just because I’m open wide,
You can’t catch me though you try,
You can kiss this goodbye.

Don’t come close, don’t come near,
Have I made myself clear?

This is a song by Anna Waronker as Haley Blue in the hit TV show “Castle”.

Threshold Lyrics

Inside this life,
Under it’s spell,
I close my eyes,
And live to tell.

The hands we’re dealt,
Will never disappear.
Death she grows near.

CHORUS
People change,
And instantly.
I’m not the same girl,
I used to be.
I can’t erase all the memories,
But I can explain,
If you’re listening.
People change,
Not just me.

Locked up in silence,
A living hell.
My heart still beats,
So I bid farewell.
The loving hand that saved me,
Held too tight.
His darkness weighs
On me at night.

CHORUS
People change,
And instantly.
I’m not the same girl,
I used to be.
I can’t erase all the memories,
But I can explain,
If you’re listening.
People change,
Not just me.

I never asked,
Or wanted to.
You stepped across my threshold,
How could you?

These lyrics come from the band Little Blue Pill portrayed on the hit TV show Castle.  You can catch this show in it’s eighth season on ABC Monday nights at 10PM EST.  I believe this song is featured in Season 2 of the show but I don’t recall what episode.

If you couldn’t already tell I adore this show ❤ it’s definitely one of my favorites so I don’t mind shamelessly promoting it of my own free will, especially when it represents so perfectly words I want to say but can’t find the words on my own. r

Alive – Sia

I was born in a thunderstorm
I grew up overnight
I played alone
I’m playing on my own
I survived

Hey
I wanted everything I never had
Like the love that comes with light
I wore envy and I hated that
But I survived

I had a one-way ticket to a place where all the demons go
Where the wind don’t change
And nothing in the ground can ever grow
No hope, just lies
And you’re taught to cry into your pillow
But I survived

I’m still breathing [4x]
I’m alive [4x]

I found solace in the strangest place
Way in the back of my mind
I saw my life in a stranger’s face
And it was mine

I had a one-way ticket to a place where all the demons go
Where the wind don’t change
And nothing in the ground can ever grow
No hope, just lies
And you’re taught to cry into your pillow
But I survived

I’m still breathing [4x]
I’m alive [4x]

You took it all, but I’m still breathing [8x]

I have made every single mistake
That you could ever possibly make
I took and I took and I took what you gave
But you never noticed that I was in pain
I knew what I wanted; I went out and got it
Did all the things that you said that I wouldn’t
I told you that I would never be forgotten
And all in spite of you

And I’m still breathing
I’m still breathing
I’m still breathing
I’m still breathing
I’m alive (You took it out, but I’m still breathing)
(You took it out, but I’m still breathing)
I’m alive (You took it out, but I’m still breathing)
(You took it out, but I’m still breathing)
I’m alive (You took it out, but I’m still breathing)
(You took it out, but I’m still breathing)
I’m alive

I’m alive [4x]

This song reminds me of the character Kate Beckett from the abc original show “Castle”.  If you know the show and Beckett’s backstory you’d know how much this song relates to her and just how much of a fighter this character really is.  Normally I wouldn’t advertise for a large network like abc but since the show is so amazing despite being under the threat of being cancelled I’d recommend it to anyone and everyone.  I can provide a brief synopsis for anyone who asks. 🙂

Breathe

“Breathe. You’re going to be okay. Breathe and remember that you’ve been in this place before. You’ve been this uncomfortable and anxious and scared, and you’ve survived. Breathe and know that you can survive this too. These feelings can’t break you. They’re painful and debilitating, but you can sit with them and eventually, they will pass. Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon, they are going to fade and when they do, you’ll look back at this moment and laugh for having doubted your resilience. I know it feels unbearable right now, but keep breathing, again and again. This will pass. I promise it will pass.”
