Brave!

Friday, June 14th, 2013

This song is just GREAT! It makes me smile so big… I even well up with tears… yes! I wanna see you be brave!

“Brave”
(Sara Bareilles)

You can be amazing
You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug
You can be the outcast
Or be the backlash of somebody’s lack of love
Or you can start speaking up
Nothing’s gonna hurt you the way that words do
And they settle ‘neath your skin
Kept on the inside and no sunlight
Sometimes a shadow wins
But I wonder what would happen if you

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

Everybody’s been there, everybody’s been stared down
By the enemy
Fallen for the fear and done some disappearing
Bow down to the mighty
Don’t run, stop holding your tongue
Maybe there’s a way out of the cage where you live
Maybe one of these days you can let the light in
Show me how big your brave is

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

Innocence, your history of silence
Won’t do you any good
Did you think it would?
Let your words be anything but empty
Why don’t you tell them the truth?

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you

I love Rosie!

It is less than 15 minutes, watch it. It’ll make you laugh and maybe cry. =) I love Rosie…

“Like Wildflowers”

If I place my hope in all things that pass away
What have I shown for myself?
If love shows her face, and my life’s out of place
Will I be kind to myself?

Where, where will I go from here?

If it’s all about timing
Then I’m right where I should be,
And there’s no room for regrets
But often times I find
That my thoughts play in rewind
And won’t free me from the past

So, where will I go? Where will I go? Where will I go?

If my life had its way
Oh how simple it would sway
Like wildflowers in the fields
I wish I could learn from the flowers and the ferns
How to take things as they come

And how, how will I grow?
Oh how, how will I grow?
Oh how, will I grow from here?

You can’t break me…

A song worth listening to…

Ingrid Michaelson – Spare Change

Spare Change

Aching, longing
Save all your hands for me
‘Cause I won’t share them
With anything, anyone, no

I grew from you
Branches from a dying tree
But I could save you
If only you looked for me

You can’t break me
I’m a piggy bank on the floor
Watch all my spare change
Roll out the door
Watch all my spare change
Roll across the floor
Watching me through
Your glass door…

Save your smile for
Everybody else you see
‘Cause I don’t want the
One that you make for me

You can’t break me
I’m a piggy bank on the floor
Watch all my spare change
Roll out the door
Watch all my spare change
Roll across the floor
Watching me through
Your glass door…
Your door…

The more that I’ve tried
The more that you’ve pried
Yourself away…

Sometimes things are so difficult to see, until we see them. At any rate, Ingrid Michaelson, a lovely favorite of mine put out a new cd. Here is one of the songs from her new album!

Music from The Other Woman

Wednesday, January 12th, 2011

I watched an incredibly touching movie, The Other Woman, with Natalie Portman, Lisa Kudrow, Scott Cohen and Charlie Tahan. It is based on a book I read some years ago, “Love and other impossible pursuits“. It had an amazing soundtrack. I went to purchase it after I finished watching the movie but I couldn’t find it anywhere. I couldn’t even find half the songs. So, I watched the ending credits over and over and over until I got all the information I could for myself and for you. Here are the songs found in the 2009 movie The Other Woman (some are missing…feel free to give me an update if you find more!).
