Repost (kinda, sorta)

Posted by Shelley on May 2, 2010 in songs |

I’m watching “Meet the Robinsons” and it reminded me of a post I did in September 2009. The song at the end of the movie is a good one and would be included in the soundtrack of my life, if there ever was one!

Going back and revisiting moments in time, trying to make sense of it all is nothing new to me. Expressing it outloud and sharing it with the world on a weblog was a little different. So, this is one of those days. Rethinking it and telling the world about it. In a “shelley-esque” kind of way.

09/26/09 I posted a few of the words this song that defined what I was going through at that time. Here is the whole song. Now I see those lyrics defined more than just that day and that particular moment in time. Instead, the song explained the twists and turns of fate in my life and gave me an answer to the “whys” about those small hours. Some of these lyrics I need to just go ahead and tattoo on myself. Words like “clarity”, “let it go”, and “let it slide” just seem to jump off the page at me.

let it go,
let it roll right off your shoulder
don’t you know
the hardest part is over
let it in,
let your clarity define you
in the end
we will only just remember how it feels

our lives are made
in these small hours
these little wonders,
these twists & turns of fate
time falls away,
but these small hours,
these small hours still remain

let it slide,
let your troubles fall behind you
let it shine
until you feel it all around you
and i don’t mind
if it’s me you need to turn to
we’ll get by,
it’s the heart that really matters in the end

our lives are made
in these small hours
these little wonders,
these twists & turns of fate
time falls away,
but these small hours,
these small hours still remain

all of my regret
will wash away some how
but i can not forget
the way i feel right now

in these small hours
these little wonders
these twists & turns of fate
these twists & turns of fate
time falls away but these small hours
these small hours, still remain,
still remain
these little wonders
these twists & turns of fate
time falls away
but these small hours
these little wonders still remain
