Have you ever taken the time out of your day to realize what a song means to someone?
Like actually listened to the lyrics and thought “this is what their life is like.”
I may not be the most spiritual person, but, when it comes to music I am.
Because I know what that feels like.
Just because a lot of you know I am good with words, doesn’t mean that I am perfect with words.
Sometimes you listen to a song and realize they tell it a lot better than you can.
Case in point for me – Jason Mraz.
He talks about a lot of things that I wish I could say.
For example – I walked down the aisle to one of his songs on our wedding day.
(if you aren’t aware of that song, then look up the sone “I Won’t Give Up – Jason Mraz) because he will be able to tell it a lot better than I ever will.
There are so many things as humans we wish we could say that we can’t.
There are so many things we want to discuss, cry about, yell about, talk about, that we can’t do because we are aware of the sadness or the hurt, or the emotions we will make someone feel, and as humans, we feel like we have a reason to keep them to ourselves.
People think that my obsession with Jason Mraz has to do with my “flower child” life but it’s so much more than that.
He talks about things I wish that I could discuss with my husband, family, and friends.
He talks about things I wish I could say, but can’t.
So when I tell you to listen to a song, it’s not me telling you to listen to a top ten hit, it’s me telling you to listen to a song that tells you how I feel about you, but I just don’t know how to tell you personally
Jason Mraz is my spiritual muse.
He’s the person I would die to see live because he’s the person that speaks to my life, my friends, my family, my husband, in a way that I know I would never be able to do myself.
I love you.
But how else do I tell you?
I tell you through music.
I tell you through Jason Mraz.
I tell you through lyrics in a song.
I don’t tell you these things because I think this song is just something you will “enjoy” I tell you these things because I feel this way to you and I don’t know how else to tell you.
I walked down the aisle to a Jason Mraz song.
If you want to look it up I walked down the aisle to the song “I Won’t Give Up” because to me, I thought my husband should know that through whatever we go through, he should know that I won’t give up.
This is what I’ve been waiting for.
This is my life.
And this is something I will not give up on.
I listen to music to bring out a side in me that I normally don’t bring out.
I listen to music to express a side in me that I don’t normally bring out, out.
I listen to music to say things that I normally don’t say.
Listen to me.
Listen to the songs I send to you.
They all mean something… and guess what..
I won’t give up.
Spiritually, musically, lyrically, I wont give up…
But I don’t know how else to tell you…. so listen..
Listen to the music I send you, listen to the words I quote to you… because they all mean something.
I’m just going to love you, like the one I love.
I want you to know that.
