We are in the final day of this challenge! I have always liked music, though as I have gotten older, I suppose you could say that we had a bit of a falling out…
Once upon a time though, I was a very heavily lyric-based song lover. I have been tagged by Joe @ Storeys of Stories for this three-day lyric based music challenge!
A little bit about the challenge:
- Thank the person who nominated you: AKA Joey from the block
- Share one of your favorite songs/lyrics for three days (one song per day)
- Nominate three other bloggers each of those three days
Today I have for you a song that helped me out in a very difficult time. He is an artist that I adore, and grew up with but somehow never heard this song until I needed it most. My brother sent it to me because he knew how much I needed to hear it, and now I will share it with you:
Billy Joel- You’re Only Human (Second Wind)
You’re not the only one who’s made mistakes
But they’re the only thing that you can truly call your own
Don’t forget your second wind
You probably don’t want to hear advice from someone else
But I wouldn’t be telling you if I hadn’t been there myself
Sometimes that’s all it takes
We’re only human
We’re supposed to make mistakes
God I love this song. It is such a great reminder that you gotta keep your head up. Even when things seem to be going completely wrong, you are not alone in your mistakes, though they are ultimately what makes us so unique. I love Billy Joel. I grew up listening to him. My family went together to see the Last Play At Shea (the original last play, not the added night) and I will always hold him close to my heart. A lot of his lyrics mean so much more to me now that I am an adult and understand what he is saying; yet they still feel nostalgic because specific songs remind me of specific times in my childhood. They remind me of beach trips with my dad, or playing in the backyard. He is a LEGEND that should be appreciated by more than just Long Islanders.
YESS the final day of tagging!
Fun Fact: I really really wanted to re-tag Joe in my last day of this challenge but then worried that it would end up being a never ending circle of tags between the two of us, and we would be doing this challenge until we died.
