The Magic of Christmas

Happy happy Saturday! It’s here at last, and I am so ready to be off work for 2 full weeks – I honestly can’t wait! But instead of thinking ahead to the next couple of weeks, I wanted to actually take this morning to have a flashback to Thursday night’s trip to the Waterfront Hall in Belfast for a night of Christmas Music.

Day 16 – The Song

What song inspires you and why?

Okay so I have a lot of songs that inspire me for a lot of different things. Recently rediscovering Who SaidĀ from Hannah Montana reminded me I can be anything I want to be – no one can tell me I can’t except me!

The song that always speaks to me though is The Story by Sara Ramirez. I first heard this song back when I was binge watching Grey’s Anatomy. The musical episode has divided fans – a bit like marmite! I couldn’t really tell you what it is about this song that made me fall in love with it, or if it was in fact the moment I realised how much I love Sara Ramirez. I now have a poster in my room of the lyrics to this song – I’ll post them below. But please, if it’s all you do today, please please listen to this song!

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I’ve been
And how I got to where I am

But these stories don’t mean anything
When you’ve got no one to tell them to
It’s true, I was made for you

I climbed across the mountaintops
Swam all across the ocean blue
I crossed all the lines and I broke all the rules
But, baby, I broke them all for you

Oh because even when I was flat broke
You made me feel like a million bucks
You do, and I was made for you

You see the smile that’s on my mouth
It’s hiding the words that don’t come out
And all of my friends who think that I’m blessed
They don’t know my head is a mess

No, they don’t know who I really am
And they don’t know what I’ve been through
Like you do, and I was made for you

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I’ve been
And how I got to where I am

Oh, but these stories don’t mean anything
When you’ve got no one to tell them to
It’s true that I was made for you
Oh, yeah, well, it’s true that I was made for you
