Taller, Stronger, Better

It has been a tumultuous week for me, filled with confusion, expectations unmet, unfamiliar emotions and unwelcome disappointments. Areas in my life I thought I had understood and put under control was suddenly rocked to its core and only then did I realise I have been too complacent in dealing with them. Perhaps I had put off dealing with it for far too long that when it finally did come, I was unprepared for its force and intensity.

This song by Guy Sebastian was playing on my iPod while I was contemplating the week's events. I wish to share it with everyone because its lyrics gave me much comfort and in a way, helped me to face the music bravely.

Taller, Stronger, Better

I've met the darkness
Been held by the night
Lonely was there in my arms
I've been with broken
I've stared in her eyes
Emptiness left me this scarred
But I heard your voice
Calling me out of the cold

I've walked through fire so I could become
All that you said I could be
And now my breath has a reason
My sky has a sun
Coz in you I've found all that I need
Your touch revived me
It was your love that opened my eyes

Because I broke through the rain
Stood through the storm
Now I know I remain
And I can do the impossible
I can reach the unreachable
It's my time
I will rise and live
And I can go higher
I know I will soar
I'm taller
I'm stronger
I'm better then before....

Good to know you have other sympathetic ears to hear you out cuz you know I'll just roll my eyes . :-)

Since you've blog about a Guy Sebastian (?????? !!!! ) song, just tot I let you in on a song I heard recently which I think is brilliantly pissy.


"Fill My Little World" by The Feeling

I had a dream we went away
Left this city for a day
You took me southwards on a plane
And showed me Spain or somewhere
But in reality you're not so keen to show me anything
And I thought you liked me
