Sara Bareilles - Love Song

         "Head under water/ And they tell me/ To breathe easy for a while"

I found this song again online ("Love Song" by Sara Bareilles) and I wanted to share it partially because I like the way this particular music video was created, especially because of the details put in, but also I enjoy that the lyrics are teasing yet serious that she will not just write a song for someone because they want one.  Everyday is different and I am going to try and make sure I create/find some highlights, positive notes/things to surround myself with/to do this weekend.

Most of the doctors appointments have not yielded anything that I can work on aside from "wait and see"... Yet one thing I do need is a bit more time in the sun so I shall perhaps adopt some part of the yard and create a reading "nook"... After I buy strong sun block so I do not turn brick red! A common problem for me and unfortunately once I fell asleep and got second degree burns on my shoulders/back -- NOT a mistake to ever make again!  (Happened perhaps a decade ago but still...even the lightest sheet felt like it was trying to rip my skin off!)  So somewhere to read where there is plenty of shade -- likely on the brick patio near the small pond :)

Almost forgot to post the lyrics!  Hope you enjoy!

Head underwater
And they tell me
To breathe easy for a while
Breathing gets harder, even I know that
Made room for me;
It's too soon to see
If I'm happy in your hands
I'm unusually hard to hold on to

Blank stares at blank pages
No easy way to say this
You mean well, but you make this hard on me

I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you asked for it
'Cause you need one,
You see

I'm not gonna write you
A love song
'Cause you tell me it's
Make or breaking this
If you're on your way

I'm not gonna write you to
Stay
If all you have is leavin',
I'ma need a better reason
To write you
A love song
Today
Today, Yeah

I learned the hard way
That they all say
Things you want to hear

My heavy heart sinks deep down under
You and your twisted words,
Your help just hurts
You are not what I thought you were
Hello to high and dry

Convince me to please you
Make me think that I need this too
I'm trying to let you hear me as I am
I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you asked for it
'Cause you need one,
You see

I'm not gonna write you
A love song
'Cause you tell me it's
Make or breaking this
If you're on your way

I'm not gonna write you to
Stay
If all you have is leavin',
I'ma need a better reason
To write you
A love song
Today

Promise me that you'll leave the light on
To help me see
With daylight, my guide, gone
'Cause I believe there's a way you can love me
Because I say
I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you asked for it
'Cause you need one,
You see

I'm not gonna write you
A love song
'Cause you tell me it's
Make or breaking this
Is that why you wanted a love song?
'Cause you asked for it?
'Cause you need one?
You see

I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you tell me it's
Make or break in this
Or you're on your way
I'm not gonna write you
To stay

If your heart is nowhere in it
I don't want it for a minute
Babe, I'll walk the seven seas when I believe that
There's a reason to write you
A love song
Today
