My life in song, or at least lyrics…I don’t sing. Well, I do, but not when other people are in the car.

Sometimes when I’m stressed and freaked out, it is hard to keep everything in perspective.  I mean, it MUST be a big deal, because it’s my life, and I’m pretty damn awesome AND important.  I’m not sure why the rest of the world doesn’t simply stop when I’m hovering on the verge of a mental breakdown.  But, it doesn’t.

I was feeling that way this morning when I heard Pearl Jam’s Just Breath, a song that always makes me feel like all is right in my world. And so, I will share it with you, because perhaps you need to know that it’s not as scary as it seems.

Yes I understand
That every life must end
As we sit alone
I know someday we must go

Oh I'm a lucky man
To count on both hands
The ones I love
Some folks just have one
Yeah others they got none

Stay with me
Let's just breathe

Practiced on our sins
Never gonna let me win
Under everything
Just another human being

I don't want to hurt
There's so much in this world
to make me believe

Stay with me
All I see

Did I say that I need you?
Did I say that I want you?
What if I did and I'm a fool you see
No one knows this more than me
'cause I come clean

I wonder everyday
As I look upon your face
Everything you gave
And nothing you would take
Nothing you would take
Everything you gave

Did I say that I need you?
Did I say that I want you?
What if I did and I'm a fool you see
No one knows this more than me
I come clean

Nothing you would take
Everything you gave
Hold me till I die
Meet you on the other side

My newest theme song (besides I Miss The Rains Down In Africa) comes from Jimmy Eat World. That song "The Middle". I play it A LOT and bounce around.
