Song Lyric Sunday – Breakaway by Kelly Clarkson

The day just keeps getting later and later and I’m running out of time to post my own response to the SLS theme. I don’t have any reason for it and I know I’ll beat myself up for it if I don’t, so here I am. First, though, I had to fix the laptop. I thought it would fix itself, but I kept getting this weird starting screen. Thanks to my son for pulling up some stuff on Google. I’ve never been one to shy away from entering weird commands on a computer, so I went for it. I’m just hoping that one day I don’t accidentally do something truly horrifying to the system.

Anyway, I haven’t taken a look at all the entries today, so this one could be a duplicate, but it is speaking to me today. It is also telling the story of why I picked the theme this week. I’m feeling pretty broken, but for some reason, I just keep going. Life is beautiful, but pain is truly starting to take its toll on me. I am trying not to let it break me, but I’m feeling the effects. Hope is all I have; hope that someday I will find the source of the pain and be able to fix it. Or, at least, find a better way to live each day with perhaps less pain.

This song makes me feel hopeful. I’m sure you’ve heard it before, but I hope you enjoy it again today.

Grew up in a small town
And when the rain would fall down
I’d just stare out my window
Dreamin’ of what could be
And if I’d end up happy
I would pray
Trying hard to reach out
But when I tried to speak out
Felt like no one could hear me
Wanted to belong here
But something felt so wrong here
So I pray
I could breakaway
I’ll spread my wings, and I’ll learn how to fly
I’ll do what it takes till I touch the sky
And I’ll make a wish
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won’t forget all the ones that I love
I’ll take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Want to feel the warm breeze
Sleep under a palm tree
Feel the rush of the ocean
Get on board a fast train
Travel on a jet plane
Faraway
And breakaway
I’ll spread my wings, and I’ll learn how to fly
I’ll do what it takes till I touch the sky
And I’ll make a wish, take a chance, make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
I won’t forget all the ones that I love
I gotta take a risk, take a chance, make a change
And breakaway
Buildings with a hundred floors
Swinging ’round revolvin’ doors
Maybe I don’t know where they take me
But gotta keep movin’ on
Movin’ on
Fly away
Breakaway
I’ll spread my wings, and I’ll learn how to fly
Though it’s not easy to tell you goodbye
I gotta take a risk, take a chance, make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won’t forget the place I come from
I gotta take a risk, take a chance, make a change
And breakaway
Breakaway
Breakaway

Song Lyric Sunday and #LoIsInDaBl Day 28 – Already Gone by Kelly Clarkson

Have you ever been in a relationship where you truly believed you loved that person enough to let them go?  I’ve said it before in a relationship but I’ve never actually done it.  I’m not sure it’s something that’s easily done.  Walking away from someone when you’re still in love with them makes it harder to let go.  In the past, even when I thought I was over, I still had a hard time finding out that the other person had moved on.

I wasn’t sure what song to pick, but then I remembered this one.  It makes me cry when I hear it because it’s gut-wrenching.  One of my favorite lines: “But  I know that you’ll find another, that doesn’t always make you wanna cry”.

I hope you enjoy this week’s Song Lyric Sunday pick as much as I do.  Feel free to read the “rules” below and join in with one of your own.

Already Gone by Kelly Clarkson
Written by Kelly Clarkson and Ryan Tedder
Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

Remember all the things we wanted
Now all our memories, they’re haunted
We were always meant to say goodbye
Even with our fists held high
It never would have worked out right, yeah
We were never meant for do or die
I didn’t want us to burn out
I didn’t come here to hurt you now I can’t stop

I want you to know
That it doesn’t matter
Where we take this road
But someone’s gotta go
And I want you to know
You couldn’t have loved me better
But I want you to move on
So I’m already gone

Looking at you makes it harder
But I know that you’ll find another
That doesn’t always make you wanna cry
It started with the perfect kiss then
We could feel the poison set in
“Perfect” couldn’t keep this love alive
You know that I love you so
I love you enough to let you go

And I’m already gone, I’m already gone
You can’t make it feel right
When you know that it’s wrong
I’m already gone, already gone
There’s no moving on
So I’m already gone

Ah already gone, already gone, already gone
Ah already gone, already gone, already gone

Remember all the things we wanted
Now all our memories, they’re haunted
We were always meant to say goodbye

And I’m already gone, I’m already gone
You can’t make it feel right
When you know that it’s wrong
I’m already gone, already gone
There’s no moving on
So I’m already gone
