Stuck in Reverse

Before I post the lyrics to the song for today, I’d like to remind you about my PayPal Pool, “Love Through Money.” The current $5000 goal is for a friend of mine! I’d really love to give him and his family as big a gift as God will allow. Please consider helping this man and his wonderful, loving family.

When you try your best, but you don’t succeed.
When you get what you want, but not what you need.
When you feel so tired, but you can’t sleep.
Stuck in reverse.

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can’t replace.
When you love someone, but it goes to waste,
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home,
And ignite your bones.
And I will try to fix you.

And high up above or down below
When you’re too in love to let it go.
But if you never try you’ll never know
Just what you’re worth.

Lights will guide you home,
And ignite your bones.
And I will try to fix you.

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace.
Tears stream down your face, and I…

Tears stream down your face.
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes.
Tears stream down your face, and I…

Lights will guide you home,
And ignite your bones.
And I will try to fix you.

Coldplay, “Fix You” from X&Y

I often avoid much of the music that really “speaks” to me, sometimes. This song in particular, I ignored for quite some time. It reminds me of many ex-girlfriends, old friends, and forgotten regrets.

I say “forgotten,” but of course, my heart never really forgets. I’ve only recently begun learning how to “guard my heart.” I really wish I had learned that earlier. Turns out, it hurts like a bitch to be lied to. It hurts even worse to be lied to repeatedly.

It hurts the most to be lied to repeatedly, in the same way, by the same person…who you were in love with. The good thing is, “love isn’t a logic puzzle.” It’s an action. Love isn’t a feeling. Love is a commandment to the individual “to ripen…to become world for another.” I’m not looking for self gratification anymore. I’m not looking for sex or money or drugs or rock-n-roll, or whatever else other people think they need or want.

I want to fix you.

Well, I want to fix the world. I want to try to fix the world. I’ll just start with one person at a time. Myself, really, seems like the best place to start. I need a lot of fixing, and I’m positive that Yeshu’a is going to be able to do that for me. I believe he has already begun to do so. I believe he has begun to do so for the entire world.

It just took one little change…

“Be the change you want to see in the world.” – Mohandas K. Gandhi

“Lights will guide you home and ignite your bonesAnd I will try…to fix you.”

Peace, Love, and Understanding, friends.

  1. Change really does begin with us. Be the change you wish to see. I used to want to save the world too, but now I believe God has given us our own little section. He connects us with people we can learn from, and to some we can teach, but it all begins in the mirror. xxx

      • In today’s world we tend to look at the numbers, and want large amounts. Yes, He is going to trust us with a little, before giving us a lot, but I am just happy just being used by Him. The numbers don’t matter to me anymore. xxx

      • I meant that I’m such a unique person, I can’t imagine God would want me to live an average life. I want to use the tools God gave me however he wants. I don’t imagine that I’m actually “better” than anyone else. I’m just different.
