Beauty in Misery

posted by letter shredder at 12:45 PM

I was thinking of a song that I could post today. It was how I wanted to start my day. So I was thinking of another Alanis song to perk me up. Then I thought of a song that I've always wanted to sing but I only knew two lines. So I sing more nah nah nah nah's than the lyrics one could comprehend.

I would never want anyone to see me listening to this song. I'm not yet immuned to its meaning.

When She Cries
Restless Heart

The road I have traveled on
Is paved with good intentions
It's littered with broken dreams
That never quite came true
When all of my hopes were dying
Her love kept me trying
And she does her best to hide the pain that she's been through

When she cries at night
And she doesn't think that I can hear her
She tries to hide all the fear she feels inside
So I pray this time
I can be the man that she deserves
'Cause I die a little each time
When she cries

She's always been there for me
Whenever I've fallen
When nobody else believed
She'd be there by my side
I don't know how she takes it
Just once I'd like to make it
Then there'll be tears of joy
That fill her loving eyes

When she cries at night
And she doesn't think that I can hear her
She tries to hide all the fear she feels inside
So I pray this time
I can be the man that she deserves
'Cause I die a little each time
When she cries

So I pray this time
I can be the man that she deserves
'Cause I die a little each time
When she cries

It is only when I am VULNERABLE that I feel most beautiful.

These lyrics really touched me - perhaps because I identify with them. Wow.
