songs

Hannah said something a couple weeks ago that made me laugh because it's so true: usually, there's a song that's been written that describes how you're feeling. The last week or so is no exclusion. And, so everyone understands, my lousy week comes mostly from Stephanie passing away and my subsequent emotional overload. It's a tough experience as a staff person during your first major emergency like that, and while I could handle it then, I certainly struggled a little afterwards. But, time is a great healer, and I'm feeling better now.

Anyway, enough of me, here's the song (And ps – it might be one of John Mayer's best songs anyway, so try to get ahold of it if you can):

Perfect Sense – John Mayer

This will all make perfect sense someday
I'll be A-Okay
All my bills have all gone paid
I shit the bed
I broke the bank

This coulda been a slow song
A laundry list of all my wrongs
But at the end of the day
This is my beautiful disaster piece I've made
Gonna laugh I know the pain is here

This will all make perfect sense someday
I'll be A-Okay
There's got to be a reason for the rain

I don't understand the numbers
But my faith is in the math
And the odds are all this pain will even out in the end
And we'll look back and laugh

And to all the hearts I've broken
And the ones that once broke mine
I've got suspicions, all will be forgiven in time
All you gotta do is call 'em up and say that, that
This will all make perfect sense someday
I'll be A-Okay
There's got to be a reason for the rain

And if it ever gets bad I mean really bad
I'll move to Nova Scotia
Forget the life I had
I'll be up at 9 each morning
Down by the shore
Collecting things that fell off boats in storms
Well ok so I might never
But it's nice to know the option's there

This will all make perfect sense someday
I'll be A-Okay
There's got to be a reason for the rain

And it doesn't help
That I keep biting my lip in the same place

  1. This was just nice, until the section about moving to Nova Scotia. It was hilarious; I love that part. The option IS there 🙂
