Moments

Last week I posted about how I have been dealing with some tough issues and how I sought help. Seeking help is never a bad thing, but I know that sometimes it can leave you feeling like you are ashamed. Like there is something not right with yourself and that you just couldn’t keep your shit together long enough to get through the day. But I can say from personal experience that doing this is just NOT the way to go. Pushing is not the answer and by seeking the help you need, you in fact ARE keeping your shit together because you are able to recognize something in yourself that most people might ignore, push aside or recognize as weak. You my friend, are in fact none of those things. We are just having our moments.

Which brings me to my musical choice this week. I chose Tove Lo’s song, Moments. I loved this song as soon as I heard it off the album. Before I knew it it became a single. It speaks to me on so many levels. It’s an anthem to my heart. In the song she says, “…I love freaks, I don’t care if you’re a wild one. And I, I’m not the prettiest you’ve ever seen, but I have my moments, I have my moments, Not the flawless one I’ve never been, but I have my moments, I have my moments, I can get a little drunk, I can get into all the drugs, but on my good days I’m charming as fuck, I can get a little drunk, I can get into all the don’ts, but on my good days I’m charming as fuck. Rough around the edges, memories and baggage, you know me, never play your safe card, when I go, I go hard…” I can safely say that those lines sum up my feelings about myself a majority of the time. If you feel anything like I do then you can agree. It’s our flaws that make us who we are. It’s the moments that make up our lives. While we may look back and wish for somethings to be different, I at least will know that the choices that I made were mine. Be they right or wrong, I made them and they made me a better person. Again, it’s the moments.

So here are the full lyrics and the crazy ass video she did for the song. Enjoy, and as always have very merry un-birthday to you!

 

Tove Lo

Moments

I grew up with a lot of green
Nice things ’round me
I was safe, I was fine

Grew up with a lot of dreams
Plans who to be
None of them know were mine

I love freaks, I don’t care if you’re a wild one
I love freaks, I don’t care if you’re a wild one
And me

I, I’m not the prettiest you’ve ever seen
But I have my moments, I have my moments
Not the flawless one, I’ve never been
But I have my moments, I have my moments
I can get a little drunk, I get into all the drugs
But on good days I am charming as fuck
I can get a little drunk, I get into all the drugs
But on good days I am charming as fuck

I can be the perfect one
But I’ll make you come
And I’m locked in you’re mind

You can say I don’t belong
That I’m so wrong
I can tell, tell you lie

I love freaks, I don’t care if you’re a wild one
I love freaks, I don’t care if you’re a wild one
And

I, I’m not the prettiest you’ve ever seen
But I have my moments, I have my moments
Not the flawless one, I’ve never been
But I have my moments, I have my moments
I can get a little drunk, I get into all the drugs
But on good days I am charming as fuck
I can get a little drunk, I get into all the drugs
But on good days I am charming as fuck

Rough around the edges, memories and baggage
You know me
Never play the safe card, when I go I go hard
And now you know

I, I’m not the prettiest you’ve ever seen
But I have my moments, I have my moments
Not the flawless one, I’ve never been
But I have my moments, I have my moments
I can get a little drunk, I get into all the drugs
But on good days I am charming as fuck
I can get a little drunk, I get into all the drugs
But on good days I am charming as fuck
