Thank You

 Today I was listening to one of my favourite singers - Alanis Morissette. I found a song I hadn't heard in ages on You Tube. Yes, she is naked. Do try to get over it. ;-) It's all about the words and  the people around her. All life is an experience to be thankful for - even death. 



How bout getting off these antibiotics
How bout stopping eating when I’m full up
How bout them transparent dangling carrots
How bout that ever elusive kudo

Thank you india
Thank you terror
Thank you disillusionment
Thank you frailty
Thank you consequence
Thank you thank you silence

How bout me not blaming you for everything
How bout me enjoying the moment for once
How bout how good it feels to finally forgive you
How bout grieving it all one at a time

Thank you... 

The moment I let go of it was the moment
I got more than I could handle
The moment I jumped off of it
Was the moment I touched down

How bout no longer being masochistic
How bout remembering your divinity
How bout unabashedly bawling your eyes out
How bout not equating death with stopping

Thank you...

  2. Great minds think alike? ;-)

    I love "You Learn" and "Ironic" as well. It was a hard choice which one to put on my blog.

    I love the song you left On Jeff's blog, BTW. I don't think I replied there.
