Instead -By Stacie Orrico (Lyrics)

気持ち: thoughtful thoughtful
音楽: Stacie Orrico

When I first heard these lyrics, i thought it was another sappy love song, but after I took the time to listen to what the lyrics were really saying, I realized that they were more insightful than I thought, and for that sole reason I have become an adamant fan of Stacie O. I am one of those people that fall in love with the artist because of the lyrics and not really the voice. I have to admit there are those with really talented voices, but I guess I believe a true artist should be able to write insightful lyrics as were as sing. This song can be found on Stacie's recent album: "Stacie Orrico." I hope that you take the time to enjoy it. I am open to hear any comments on it. Mahalo!!

I saw him shaking his change in a coffee cup
Asked for a dollar but I told the man to give it up
Said he's hungry I don't think that's true
I bet my dollar he'd just go spend it on booze
I turned my back on him and began to walk away
But then I heard a little voice inside me say
What if it's really true what if he's hungry
What if it's not for him, does he have a family

How'd you get here
How'd you end up on the street
Where did it go wrong
Wonder what I'd do if it were me

A new point of view
A walk in your shoes
I wish I could get inside your head
To see what you see
When you look at me
Cause I could've lived your life instead

It was 90 degrees in the summer heat
She was veiled in black all the way down to her feet
This is America doesn't she know
Somebody take her shopping, buy her some clothes
She came up to me, I didn't understand a word
I was about to leave then another thought occurred
She might be really lost, scared and frustrated
I should try again to see what she's saying

How'd you get here
How'd you end up on the street
Where did it go wrong
Wonder what I'd do if it were me

A new point of view
A walk in your shoes
I wish I could get inside your head
To see what you see
When you look at me
Cause I could've lived your life instead

I have several Hello Kitty products from pens to shirts. I do have the last Matrix DVD and I loved the second one the best. The third was a bit disappointing. :)

Well, I thought it was fitting for an ending, considering the philosophy behind it. Anyway, hope to read more on your journals in the future. Take care
