The Story of Who I am is Song Lyric Thursday

One of my favorite songs from the soundtrack of my journey is one I discovered as a free download from iTunes during the time that Rob and I were in the long distance part of our relationship.

I didn’t have any way to use my iPod in the car at that point, so I burned a disc and listened to it quite a bit. During the week that Rob was visiting towards the end of the school year and helping me get the house ready for sale and packing for the move, he was driving me back and forth to work in my car. One day he admitted that the cd I was listening to kind of choked him up and it turned out to be this song he had heard.

It’s a really good song. But I am a lyrics girl.

 

 

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I’ve been
And how I got to where I am
But these stories don’t mean anything
When you’ve got no one to tell them to
It’s true…I was made for you
I climbed across the mountain tops
Swam all across the ocean blue
I crossed all the lines and I broke all the rules
But baby I broke them all for you
Because even when I was flat broke
You made me feel like a million bucks
You do
I was made for you
You see the smile that’s on my mouth
It’s hiding the words that don’t come out
And all of my friends who think that I’m blessed
They don’t know my head is a mess
No, they don’t know who I really am
And they don’t know what 
I’ve been through like you do
And I was made for you…
All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I’ve been
And how I got to where I am
But these stories don’t mean anything
When you’ve got no one to tell them to
It’s true…I was made for you

  1. Wow, you’re right — this is a fabulous song. In particular, I love the honesty expressed in the beginning, about “the lines on my face.” Thanks for sharing this with us.
