Anyhow

Noting that my playing needs a lot of work and the song perhaps some refinement, so I ask you to try to hear beyond that, I’d like to vulnerably offer you one of the songs I wrote this month. I just did a quick play through so I could play for myself, and the spirit moves me to put it out there, as I have done before with what maybe could have waited to be said.

This song is one that comes from within my journey; it is about making it onward. Aware my deep feeling and open sharing in general are a challenge, for me and others, I know that I will get on the other side of this and have grown immeasurably and maybe have helped someone else.

We needn’t be ashamed of our struggles. They are who we are. This darkness will lift.

Life can be hard.
I’ll make it anyhow.
You’ll make it anyhow.
We’ll make it anyhow.

Prayers for you all.

I was always the girl a little naïve,
who gives too much and wears
her heart on her sleeve.
Tried to live and learn
with every turn,
but I don’t seem to be changing.

I feel things deeply,
share completely, and
always want to believe.
And there’s something in me
that seems unable to be
just a few steps down.
But I’ll make it anyhow.
I’ll make it anyhow.

I’ve been blessed from above,
with so much love,
from my friends and family.
They soften the pains
and the trying days.
And remind me I’m amazing.
Yes, we’re all amazing.

I feel things deeply,
share completely, and
always want to believe.
And there’s something in me
that seems unable to be
just a few steps down.
But I’ll make it anyhow.
I’ll make it anyhow.

We’ve all got weakness,
but our completeness,
does not come from perfection.
It’s living true, in all we do
that brings the greatest blessing.
Bring the greatest blessing.
Yes, we’re all amazing.

Sometimes you’ll feel things deeply,
share completely, and
always want to believe.
Sometimes you’ll see
that you’re unable to be
just a few steps down.
But you’ll make it anyhow.
I’ll make it anyhow.
We’ll make it anyhow.
