I need to begin by telling you how I feel, song lyrics are the most weird and wonderful ways of a song writer, not only telling you a story but in my eyes; I feel they are telling us life long lessons.
“So, I had a bad day!”
No I will not be picking that song apart. However, I have your attention and I want to stop and have a mediation moment. Picture yourself saying Amazing– how life is Amazing. Just think you have had the worst time in your life and you made it through…..
Without further ado, I bring you my all time favourite band Aerosmith.
This is from the Big Ones Album: Amazing! Feel free to Spotify and sing with Steven Tyler:
I kept the right ones out
And let the wrong ones in
Had an angel of mercy to see me through all my sins
There were times in my life
When I was goin’ insane
Tryin’ to walk through
When I lost my grip
And I hit the floor
Yeah,I thought I could leave but couldn’t get out the door
I was so sick and tired
Of livin’ a lie
I was wishin that I
Stop right there: We all have had a moment in our lives when people have pretended that things are great in their relationships or great with family memebers. They put the happy pictures up on facebook but deep down – they are having a nightmare situation.
With the blink of an eye you finally see the light
When the moment arrives that you know you’ll be alright
And I’m sayin’ a prayer for the desperate hearts tonight
Stop right there! Again you know you find it amazing when the moment arises where you think: it’s okay! I will be fine – no need to worry. As the thoughts are with you….
That one last shot’s a Permanent Vacation
And how high can you fly with broken wings?
Life’s a journey not a destination
And I just can’t tell just what tomorrow brings
You have to learn to crawl
Before you learn to walk
But I just couldn’t listen to all that righteous talk, oh yeah
I was out on the street,
Just tryin’ to survive
Scratchin’ to stay
Thank you Very much Aerosmith…. as I was just trying to survive, scratching to stay alive. Been there done that and brought the Aerosmith t-shirt. Happy! Elated I have come through it. .
Desperate hearts, desperate hearts
Sing your heart out! Those are impacts of people’s lives – right there in a song which was written 20 odd years ago.
The amount of ironic moments you think…. Amazing! I hear myself asking questions and answering them:
Why did it happen?
Who was there? How did it happen? This is amazing!
How Weird and Wonderful is that?
Chucks! Why was I so concerned with that scenario?
Thank you so much for your help! You were Amazing!
How Weird and Wonderful is the world. Call me a hippie or a metal head but I believe in the Amazing moments. I cannot believe I am able to overcome some massive hurdle. Amazing. Couldn’t have done it without help.
