Life to Lyrics

When I first heard this song it resonated so deeply with me. Its not that the lyrics to this song are so eloquent, though sometimes there’s a certain eloquence to simplicity. However, most of the lyrics totally described how I’ve been feeling and my journey I began at the top of the year that we all will be closing out soon (God willing). I’m been in pursuit of Christ, in pursuit of myself, pursuit of change and because of all these areas I’m rediscovering myself and becoming more comfortable in my own skin. Its an indescribable feeling really and then again its every ounce of wonderful. Its a long journey but the beginning has been nothing less than sweet! I’ll try to follow this post up with a video if possible.

Ciao 😉

“Brand New Me” Alicia Keys

It’s been a while I’m not who I was before You look surprised Your words don’t burn me anymore Been meanin’ to tell ya But I guess it’s clear to see Don’t be mad It’s just a brand new kinda me Can’t be bad I found a brand new kinda free

Careful with your ego He’s the one that we should blame Had to grab my heart back God knows something had to change I thought that you’d be happy I found the one thing I need Why you mad? It’s just a brand new kinda me

Ooh, it took a long long time to get here It took a brave, brave girl to try It took one too many excuses One too many lies Don’t be surprised, don’t be surprised

If I talk a little louder If I speak up when you’re wrong If I walk a little taller I’ve been under you too long If you notice that I’m different Don’t take it personally Don’t be mad It’s just a brand new kinda me That ain’t bad I found a brand new kinda free

Ooh, it took a long, long road to get here It took a brave, brave girl to try I’ve taken one too many excuses One to many lies Don’t be surprised, oh, said, you look surprised

Hey, if you were a friend You’d wanna get to know me again If you were worth the while You’d be happy to see me smile I’m not expecting sorry I’m too busy finding myself I got this I found me, I found me, yeah

I don’t need your opinion I’m not waiting for your okay I’ll never be perfect, But at least now I’m brave I know my heart is open I can finally breathe Don’t be mad It’s just a brand new kinda free That ain’t bad I found a brand new kinda me Don’t be mad It’s just a brand new time for me
