Oh Lyrics

" This is the last time you tell me I’ve got it wrong,
This is the last time I say it’s been you all along,
This is the last time I let you in my door,
This is the last time, I won’t hurt you anymore. "

~Taylor Swift~
"And how you sacrifice and try to make things right
Is the whole world happy but you
But hungry children cry while thirsty siblings die
How did this life become so cruel
And then the questions come and rare are answers known
But this is still worth pushing through
Cause every smile shown
And Every laughing moment
Confirms that life is beautiful."

~Icarus Account~
Lyrics are so powerful.
Words are so powerful.
They bring pain, solace, smiles, tears, laughter, fun.
They bring you a myriad of emotions.
They strike hard when you can relate to it.
Home runs all around.
I thought I'd share these lyrics because I find them so unnerving.
So raw.
So powerful.
 Especially if you hear them sung.

Life is really something isn't?
It's raindrops and railroad tracks.
Snow colored ground, and Ice Cream.
It's well dressed words and unexplained actions.
It's climbing trees and sprouting wings.
It is a stranger to me.
But yet a friend that I've known all of my years of existence.
Eighteen to be exact.
I'll never fully get it.
But that's okay, because I don't need to.
You don't need to.
We don't need to.
We just need to live it, love it, appreciate it.
It's a gift.
Even when you don't realize it, it is.
It's beautiful too.
It's something.
Ecclesiastes 9:11-12;
"I have seen something else under the sun:The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned but time and chance happen to them all. Moreover, no one knows when their hour will come: As fish are caught in a cruel net, or birds are taken in a snare, so people are trapped by evil times that fall unexpectedly upon them."
No one is out of the reach of death. No one is invincible.
So appreciate the days you have and LIVE.
Actually Live.
Don't walk through life like a zombie.
And live it for the Creator of Life itself.


  1. I love the first picture!!! That is super cool! And that is an awesome post! Super cute! <3

  2. I'm very very fond of lyrics. <3 Words can mean sooo much. It's wonderful, isn't it?
    I adore this post. :)

    {P.S. *youhaveanautographedpictureofDeppster???????* Ohmyword. I'm so stinking jealous I can barely put spaces between the words. He's been my *allTime* favorite actor since I was about seven. lol. :D Did he autograph it for you specifically or did someone give it to you? I have a huge Jack Sparrow poster in my room that I'd die to have autographed by him. lol.}

    1. ahaha! Yes I do! Haha. What happened was i used to be obsessed so i looked for a fanmail address for him and found one so i wrote him a letter asking him for one and i got back an autographed picture of him saying; "In all good wishes- Johnny Depp" written in silver ink. I mean it couuuuld be photocopied, but the fact that it said more than just johnny depp made it seem like it was him. I'll never know though, but i still think its cool:)

    2. *AWH* gosh. That's awesome though! :D I might have to try that. <3 ^_^

  3. Lyrics are amazing. That moment when you hear a song and it describes your situation so perfectly that before you know it there's a lump in your throat the size of Detroit? Yep, had it. Been there. Loads.

    Hee! Wendy always reminded me of my sister. She looked and acted a lot like her, and I was like, "WENDY IS REAL, I TELL YOU!"

    God bless!

  6. I love of of this, the lyrics and your own writing! Just beautiful and charming. And a very good reminder, to live this life and not just go through the motions. It makes me want to watch Tuck Everlasting again. :)

  7. "And live it for the Creator of Life itself."
    Ah, how often we(me) forget that and live for ourselves...good reminder. =D
