Beautiful Lyrics

Those who know me know I just love lyrics and can spend hours on end reading and searching for more… So I sit alone tonight listening to all my old music that I haven’t listed to in years and Janis Ian’s song I believe I’m Myself again came on… Can’t find the video but here are the lyrics – its absolutely beautiful and just had to share them with you…:

Blue sky by the ocean
I got a bluebird singing freedom
And I’m happy to be living
I believe I’m myself again

No tears to cry him
No desire to linger here
Beside him
Without him
I believe I’m myself again

I got a whippoorwill
he sing the blues
I got honey bees
and roses, too
but they don’t sting
the way you do
I believe I’m myself again

thanks to all the friends
who stood by me
when we were standing still
Now I’ve got perspective
on the situation
and it makes me ill

How could I have loved you
for so long?
I know I enjoyed you
but how could I have liked you…

So thank you
God bless you
Sleep well tonight
You made me cry
But I’m better
Without you
I believe I’m myself again
