Strength in Me


[tweetmeme source=”jenuy” only_single=false]

Sometimes when I feel down, I just listen to music particularly those of Paula Cole, Sheryl Crow, The Corrs, Tracy Chapman, John Mayer … songs with solo or subtle inclusions of guitar, violin, saxophone and piano are just plainly calming.

Paula Cole’s song, Me, is one of my favorite empowerment songs which proves to be convincing with Cole’s powerful but soothing voice. Enjoy her music and lyrics as she plays beautifully with the piano.

I am not the person who is singing
I am the silent one inside
I am not the one who
laughs at people’s jokes
I just pacify their egos
I am not my house, my car, my songs
They are only just stops along my way
I am like the winter
I’m a dark cold female
With a golden ring of
wisdom in my cave

CHORUS:

And it is me who is my enemy
Me who beats me up
Me who makes the monsters
Me who strips my confidence

I am carrying my voice
I am carrying my heart
I am carrying my rhythmn
I am carrying my prayers
But you can’t kill my spirit
It’s soaring and it’s strong
Like a mountain
I’ll go on and on
But when my wings are folded
The brightly colored moth
Blends into the dirt into the ground

CHORUS:

And it’s me who’s too weak
And it’s me who’s too shy
To ask for the thing i love
And it’s me who’s too weak
And it’s me who’s too shy
To ask for the thing i love
That I love

I am walking on the bridge
I am over the water
And I’m scared as hell
But I know there’s something better
Yes I know there’s something better
Yes I know, yes i know, yes i know

That I love
But it’s me
And it’s me
But it’s me
