Musical Friday! ;)

Life is not tried, it is merely survived
If you’re standing outside the fire ~ Garth Brooks, “In Pieces”

Some of you who have been around for a long while know that I love to ‘speak through music’. I’ve mentioned before that I dissect song lyrics like others do Shakespeare ….

I read a post over at His.minnie that reminded of this song! It’s long been one of my favourites and so today I will share it with you.

We call them strong
Those who can face this world alone
Who seem to get by on their own
Those who will never take the fall 

This was me, but now …

There’s this love that is burning
Deep in my soul
Constantly yearning to get out of control
Wanting to fly higher and higher
I can’t abide
Standing outside the fire 

Unfortunately I couldn’t find an original video in good shape but if you get a chance, do look it up!

I used this as my theme song you could say when transitioning from my narcissistic family to my life now. It works equally well with our relationships as minnie has so nicely put into words! *wink*

“Standing Outside The Fire”

We call them cool
Those hearts that have no scars to show
The ones that never do let go
And risk the tables being turned

We call them fools
Who have to dance within the flame
Who chance the sorrow and the shame
That always comes with getting burned

But you’ve got to be tough when consumed by desire
‘Cause it’s not enough just to stand outside the fire

We call them strong
Those who can face this world alone
Who seem to get by on their own
Those who will never take the fall

We call them weak
Who are unable to resist
The slightest chance love might exist
And for that forsake it all

They’re so hell-bent on giving ,walking a wire
Convinced it’s not living if you stand outside the fire

Standing outside the fire
Standing outside the fire
Life is not tried, it is merely survived
If you’re standing outside the fire

There’s this love that is burning
Deep in my soul
Constantly yearning to get out of control
Wanting to fly higher and higher
I can’t abide
Standing outside the fire

Standing outside the fire
Standing outside the fire
Life is not tried, it is merely survived
If you’re standing outside the fire

Standing outside the fire
Standing outside the fire
Life is not tried, it is merely survived
If you’re standing outside the fire

Now I’ve got a CD to go find! Yes, I DO still use those …. *chuckle*

Happy Friday!! ❤

  1. I think and feel in music a lot also. It’s funny to me sometimes a don’t will be in my head, and I can’t figure out why, then I’ll realize some random emotional connection to something from the day. Even mundane things.
    “I’m leaving in a jet plane” always pops in my head when I go to the airport. Lol!

    1. Thank you, Kis. I’m glad you enjoyed it too. I used music as my therapy a long time ago, now it’s just for enjoyment. You can always tell when i’m getting ready for a ‘good fight’ though! *wink* just need to listen to what’s playing!!
