This Song Really Hit Home

If you read my recent post Broken Heart: Taking Time to Grieve a Break Up you know I just went through a break up.  And yes, this is another post that has nothing to do with weight loss, healthy living, etc but hey it’s my blog right so I can post about whatever 😉 So anyways I was watching the Grammy’s last night and Katy Perry performed a song I’d never heard by her before Part of Me. The chorus of the song totally hit home with me and the recent break up – here’s the chorus:

This is the part of me that you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no
This is the part of me that you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no
Throw your sticks and stones
Throw your bombs and your blows
But you’re not gonna break my soul
This is the part of me that you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no

Then of course I wanted to know the rest of the song so I had to look it up and I liked it. It just all kind of hit home with me and reminding me that no man is worth letting them break my soul/break me. So here’s the rest of the song:

Days like this I want to drive away
Pack my bags and watch your shadow fade
Cause you chewed me up and spit me out
Like I was poison in your mouth
You took my light, you drained me down
That was then and this is now
Now look at me

CHORUS

I just wanna throw my phone away
Find out who is really there for me
Cause you ripped me off, your love was cheap
Was always tearing at the seams
I fell deep and you let me down
But that was then and this is now
Now look at me

CHORUS

Now look at me, I’m sparkling
A firework, a dancing flame
You won’t ever put me out again
I’m glowing, oh woah oh
You can keep the dog from me
I never liked him anyway
In fact you can keep everything
Yeah, yeah
Except for me

CHROUS

Ok, so yes I’m a dork and sometimes songs ‘speak’ to me. I’m sure you probably know what I’m saying…so what is a song that recently ‘spoke’ to you?

Me

    For me, it was “The Waves” by Elisa. Gorgeous song. It made me think of my husband and a rough patch we went through a few years back.

    I’ll get away, get in the car
    I’ll reach the shore before sunrise
    And I’ll watch the moon and the stars
    I’ll tell them everything about us

    I left last night
    And I reached the shore
    Trying to find everything I lost
    In a thousand waves
    A million waves
    Oh still, somewhere I’m sure

    That I will see your face
    I will see you there

    Oh, morning sun
    Before you arise
    Before you’ll come and shine again on us
    Let me find, let me find, let me find

    Some comfort in the night
    I don’t mind what I’ve lost
    I’ve reached the shore
    And nothing ever changed
    In a thousand waves
    A million waves
    Oh still, I look for love

    And all I see is your face
    All I see is your face

    So I come back home to you
    So I come back home to you
    So I come back home to you
    So I come back home to you

    Hi Serena! I’ve never heard this song before…at least I don’t think I have. It doesn’t look/sound familiar.
