A Song A Day Challenge – Part I

music quote

My lovely, incredibly talented friend Sandra tagged me to participate in the ‘a song a day challenge’ – Seriously? I fucking love music! Sandra is fantastically mysterious, deep, dark, and did I mention talented? Although we’ve never met in person, I feel an intense connection with her. She gets me and I get her. She’s even more sarcastic than me, Yes! Maybe that’s why we’re drawn to one another? Either way, I’m thrilled to call her my very close friend.

Here are the rules. I hate rules but I’ll try….

Post a song a day for five consecutive days
Post the name of the song and video
Post what the lyrics mean to you (optional)
Nominate two different bloggers each day of the challenge

It’s hard to pick nominees because I’ve already seen so many participating already and then of course there are several bloggers that do not like to be nominated but I’ll give it a shot. Please, pretty please do not feel obligated.

Gravity.

Yes, Lennon has a softer side believe it or not. This song reminds me of a time in my life when I was extremely fragile. I allowed someone in, they pulled me down, into their miserable existence. This song sums up how I felt and what I went through. I promise the next song will be more uplifting. But, I’ve always loved this song and when I hear it, it makes me realize how strong I truly am and how far I’ve really come. No one will ever have that type of control over me again.

Something always brings me back to you
It never takes too long
No matter what I say or do
I’ll still feel you here ’till the moment I’m gone
You hold me without touch
You keep me without chains
I never wanted anything so much than to drown in your love
And not feel your reign
Set me free, leave me be
I don’t want to fall another moment into your gravity
Here I am, and I stand
So tall, just the way I’m supposed to be
But you’re on to me and all over me
Oh, you loved me ’cause I’m fragile
When I thought that I was strong
But you touch me for a little while
And all my fragile strength is gone
Set me free, leave me be
I don’t want to fall another moment into your gravity
Here I am, and I stand
So tall, just the way I’m supposed to be
But you’re on to me and all over me
I live here on my knees as I try to make you see
That you’re everything I think I need here on the ground
But you’re neither friend nor foe though I can’t seem to let you go
The one thing that I still know is that you’re keeping me down
You’re keeping me down, eh ooh
You’re on to me, on to me, and all over
Something always brings me back to you
It never takes too long
