Sometimes I Just Don’t Listen!

I often find myself driving along in my fancy ride (2014 Honda Odyssey, thanks for asking!) listening to the radio, shouting singing at the top of my lungs, moving m’body while rushing from one place to the next never really listening to the words I’m singing.

With an impending birthday and the celebration of another wild & crazy year, I finally “heard” this song the other day. And it made me smile hard!

I owned every second that this world could give
I saw so many places the things that I did
With every broken bone, I swear I lived
Hope that you spend your days,
But they all add up
And when that sun goes down, hope you raise your cup
Oh, I wish that I could witness all your joy and all your pain
But until my moment comes I’ll say

I, I did it all
I, I did it all

The Full Song:

“I Lived”
One Republic

Hope when you take that jump, you don’t feel the fall
Hope when the water rises, you built a wall
Hope when the crowd screams out,
You screaming your name
Hope if everybody runs, you choose to stay
Hope that you fall in love, and it hurts so bad
The only way you can know, you give it all you had
And I hope that you don’t suffer the take the pain
Hope when the moment comes you’ll sayI, I did it all
I, I did it all
I owned every second that this world could give
I saw so many places the things that I did
With every broken bone, I swear I lived
Hope that you spend your days,
But they all add up
And when that sun goes down, hope you raise your cup
Oh, I wish that I could witness all your joy and all your pain
But until my moment comes I’ll sayI, I did it all
I, I did it all
I owned every second that this world could give
I saw so many places the things that I did
With of every broken bone, I swear I lived
Oh [x4]
With every broken, I swear I lived. With every broken, I swear I
I, I did it all
I, I did it all
I owned every second that this world could give
I saw so many places the things that I did
With of every broken bone, I swear I lived. Oh [x4]
I swear I lived. Ohhh [x2]
