Lyric Letter To Myself



Today I was thinking about the person I used to be. I thought about myself in my awkward teen years, and I thought about the person I am now. I thought about all the really hard things I’ve gone through in my life, and I wondered what kind of a letter I would write to myself, if I got the chance. I decided that I would probably write a letter in song lyrics, because I would understand that at any age. 

I was surprised at how fast I was able to write it all out, and tried to use many of the songs that have helped me throughout the years. 

“Hey Soul Sister,

Let me riddle you a ditty, it’s just an itty biddy little thing on my mind. I bleed my heart out on this paper.  Whenever I see your smiling face, I have to smile myself, because I love you! Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away. So far away, so far away from where you are. Here comes the sun do-do-do-do, and I say, it’s alright. Her face is a map of the world, you can tell she’s a beautiful girl. Look at this photograph, every time I do it makes me laugh. Laughter is the very best medicine. So, here’s the story from A-Z:

Hey, don’t write yourself off yet. I used to care so much about what other people thought about. Your exceptional, the way you are, no need to change for nobody. You don’t have to try so hard. Just take one step at a time, there’s no need to rush. And I ask myself, who do I wanna be? I see your true colors shining through. Baby, you’re so classic. Are we human? Or are we dancer? You and me baby we’re stuck like glue.  Made in the USA. In your blinding beauty, you remind everyone who your maker must be.

Have you ever been alone in a crowded room? Well I’m, here with you. Everybody looking at you, here take my hand. Everybody talks. No matter what they say, no matter what they do. When you dream, dream big! I could really use a wish right now. Hakuna Matata - it means no worries, for the rest of your days. Tonight’s gonna be a good good night. I’m gonna swing from the chandelier. Why do I feel this good sober. Because I’m free, free falling. Shake it off, shake it off. All the single ladies. I proudly stand up, next to you and defend her still today.  You’re never fully dressed without a smile!

Live like you were dying. Jesus take the wheel! God bless this broken road, that led me straight to you. You find out who your friends are. Hey now, Hey now, this is what dreams are made of. Dream, dream, dream, dream. A dream is a wish your heart makes. When you’re dreaming with a broken heart, the waking up is the hardest part. Don’t you worry child, see Heaven’s got a plan for you. There’s something bout love. I will love you forever, forever and always. You’re worth more than gold! Stay beautiful!

I will love you, unconditionally.”
