Heart and Soul

Have you ever been terrified of being happy? I know this is a weird question to ask. Currently, it's way too early in the morning and there are tears filling my eyes as I write this. Why? It's not of sadness. Fear isn't the right word… I can't pin the emotion. I'm at this place right now where I am balancing playing it cool and putting my heart right there in the open. This balancing act is not my strong suit.  So I turn to music.

Tonight, I tried something I've never done before. I listened and I wrote. I wrote exactly what I heard (I had to pause and replay a few times…damn you slow fingers!!) And then I read what I wrote.

Although I know I connect with music and lyrics in a specific way, this process made this song by Mumford and Sons all the more meaningful.

So please read. Savor. And feel, if you wish. I'm feeling highly emotional right now… so if you care to join...
Let's do this:

Listen HERE


And after the storm,
I run and run as the rains come.
and I look up, I look up.
on my knees and out of luck,
I look up.

Night has always pushed up day.
You must know life to see decay,
But I won't rot, I won't rot.
Not this mind and not this heart,
I won't rot.

And I took you by the hand
And we stood tall,
And  remembered our own land,
what we lived for.
And there will come a time you'll see, with no more tears
and love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there.
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

Love Love.

I knew this was going to be the song as I started reading this. I listened to this song non-stop last fall when I was going through my little emotional low point. I hope you find your peace, soon! Come visit, anytime and we'll have so much fun!
