Expression thru Music

Recently I’ve been connecting with music as a means of figuring out what I’m feeling, thinking, and sometimes just to escape for even a moment. Tonight I was introduced to two of the following songs…the first one, and the second one. I like them because I can currently relate to them…in many ways.

The third one has been a long time favorite of mine. It took me a few years to watch the video because I heard it was emotional, raw and heartbreaking. Having been through that sort of situation, I couldn’t bring myself to watch the video. Just listening to the song moved me to tears, the video may very well have killed me. I’ve since watched the video and it’s true…it is very emotional, raw, heartbreaking and an incredibly accurate expression of emotion. I still tear up every time I watch it.

The first two songs listed below are a little more fun and exciting.

Meant to Be by Bebe Rexha

Baby, lay on back and relax, kick your pretty feet up on my dash
No need to go​ nowhere fast, let’s enjoy right here where we at
Who knows where this road is supposed to lead
We got nothing but time
As long as you’re right here next to me, everything’s gonna be alright
If it’s meant to be, it’ll be, it’ll be
Baby, just let it be
If it’s meant to be, it’ll be, it’ll be
Baby, just let it be
So, won’t you ride with me, ride with me?
See where this thing goes
If it’s meant to be, it’ll be, it’ll be
Baby, if it’s meant to be
I don’t mean to be so uptight, but my heart’s been hurt a couple times
By a couple guys that didn’t treat me right
I ain’t gon’ lie, ain’t gonna lie
‘Cause I’m tired of the fake love, show me what you’re made of
Boy, make me believe
But hold up, girl, don’t you know you’re beautiful?
And it’s easy to see
If it’s meant to be, it’ll be, it’ll be
Baby, just let it be
If it’s meant to be, it’ll be, it’ll be
Baby, just let it be
So, won’t you ride with me, ride with me?
See where this thing goes
If it’s meant to be, it’ll be, it’ll be
Baby, if it’s meant to be
So, c’mon ride with me, ride with me
See where this thing goes
So, c’mon ride with me, ride with me
Baby, if it’s meant to be
Maybe we do
Maybe we don’t
Maybe we will
Maybe we won’t
But if it’s meant to be, it’ll be, it’ll be
Baby, just let it be
If it’s meant to be, it’ll be, it’ll be (c’mon)
Baby, just let it be (let’s go)
So, won’t you ride with me, ride with me?
See where this thing goes
If it’s meant to be, it’ll be, it’ll be
Baby, if it’s meant to be
If it’s meant to be, it’ll be, it’ll be
Baby, if it’s meant to be
If it’s meant to be, it’ll be, it’ll be
Baby, if it’s meant to be
Like a rainy Sunday morning makes me wanna stay in bed, twisted up all day long
You’re my inspiration girl, you take me places, put the words right into these songs
Stealin’ kisses undercover babe
I see forever when I see your face
And I swear God made you for me
You make it easy
Lovin’ up on you
Make it easy
With every little thing you do
You’re my sunshine in the darkest days
My better half, my saving grace
You make me who I wanna be
You make it easy
You took on my rough around the edges
Never let it ruffle up your feathers, angel
Yeah I’m down for life, you got me wrapped around your finger
And I like it just in case you can’t tell
You make it easy
Lovin’ up on you
Make it easy
With every little thing you do
You’re my sunshine in the darkest days
My better half, my saving grace
You make me who I wanna be
You make it easy
Stealin’ kisses undercover babe
I see forever when I see your face
And I swear God made you for me
You make it easy
Lovin’ up on you
Make it easy
With every little thing you do
You’re my sunshine in the darkest days
My better half, my saving grace
You make me who I wanna be
You make it easy
You make it easy
I’ve been sittin’ here, starin’ at the clock on the wall
And I’ve been layin’ here, prayin’
Prayin’ she won’t call
It’s just another call from home, and you’ll get it
And be gone, and I’ll be cryin’
And I’ll be beggin’ you, baby
Beg you not to leave
But I’ll be left here waitin’
My heart on my sleeve
Oh, for the next time we’ll be here
Seems like a million years, and I think I’m dyin’
What do I have to do to make you see
She can’t love you like me?
Why don’t you stay?
I’m down on my knees
I’m so tired of bein’ lonely
Don’t I give you what you need?
When she calls you to go
There is one thing you should know
We don’t have to live this way
Baby, why don’t you stay?
You keep tellin’ me, baby
There will come a time
When you will leave her arms
And forever be in mine
But I don’t think that’s the truth
And I don’t like bein’ used, and I’m tired of waitin’
It’s too much pain to have to bear
To love a man you have to share
I can’t take it any longer, but my will is gettin’ stronger
And I think I know just what I have to do
I can’t waste another minute
After all that I’ve put in it
I’ve given you my best
Why does she get the best of you?
So next time you find you wanna leave her bed for mine
Why don’t you stay?
I’m up off my knees
I’m so tired of bein’ lonely
You can’t give me what I need
When she begs you not to go
There is one thing you should know
I don’t have to live this way
Baby, why don’t you stay?
