Dark Side

Of course it’s 5 am and like a true insomniac that I am, I can’t sleep. So fun things I did today- went to get a haircut that’s a bit too short for my liking. The stylist convinced my mum that my hair needed treatment (apparently it wasn’t as shiny/healthy as it was when he last saw it in March), so that took another hour. Went to the supermarket, came home, napped (it’s so weird how a 30-minute nap can power you for the entire evening- and early morning- but a 12 hour sleep does nothing to wipe out the tired-ness), and went out for dinner with friends. On my way home from dinner, I twisted my ankle walking down the steps. It’s a minor one, but it hurts like a bitch. Every time I move it, a searing pain shoots through my foot. Not that I’m complaining- I kinda like the pain (masochist much?). I just hope it’ll be gone by the time I have to fly back to Switzerland in four days- a twisted ankle on a plane does not sound good.

I’ve been thinking for awhile now to post lyrics from artists that I love. Sometimes we don’t really read into the lyrics, but when we do, we realize how much they reflect our lives. I applaud these amazing individuals/groups who can come up with words and transform them into songs that really hit our core.

Today’s lyrics will be from Kelly Clarkson’s song, Dark Side (click on the picture for the video- watch it. It’s amazing.):

there’s a place that I know
it’s not pretty there but few have ever gone
if I show it to you now
will it make you run away

or will you stay
even if it hurts
even if I try to push you out
will you return?
and remind me who I really am
please remind me who I really am

everybody’s got a dark side
do you love me?
can you love mine?
nobody’s a picture perfect
but we’re worth it
you know that we’re worth it
will you love me?
even with my dark side?

like a diamond
from black dust
it’s hard to know
what can become
If you give up
so don’t give up on me
please remind me who I really am

everybody’s got a dark side
do you love me?
can you love mine?
nobody’s a picture perfect
but we’re worth it
you know that we’re worth it
will you love me?
even with my dark side?

don’t run away
don’t run away
just tell me that you will stay
promise me you will stay
don’t run away
don’t run away
just promise me you will stay
promise me you will stay

will you love me? ohh

everybody’s got a dark side
do you love me?
can you love mine?
nobody’s a picture perfect
but we’re worth it
you know that we’re worth it
will you love me?
even with my dark side?

I love her. She’s such an inspiration/role model to me. This is one of her darker songs, but I still love it nonetheless. I would love to gone into the details of why I picked this song to post, but I won’t. I just want you all to enjoy the song. And the video too. Please watch it. It says so much.

On another note- I’m so close to 4,000 views! It’s taken four months, but I am incredibly grateful to all my readers and followers. I’ve sucked at keeping up with all of ya’ll, but it will be in my routine once I settle back down in Switzerland. I promise.

Lots of love and kisses.
