Discovery

I love the internet.

That’s no newsflash, I’ve loved it since I first discovered it. Although, back in those early days, without Boolean search terms it was a time consuming place to be!  I can be a bit obsessive by nature, so I liked to explore all the the page results.  Thankfully, search engines got better.  And these days there are so many places on the net to discover new things.

When I am having a particularly bad day, music helps me a lot.  Sometimes, I find things on the sidebar of You Tube that have been suggested to me by their search algorithm.  That’s how I found this Australian gem, Katie Noonan.  I was looking for things by Clare Bowditch.  And You Tube understood what I needed today.

This song. But it’s not just for me. It’s for anyone who needs to get through this second, this minute.  And breathe in, now.

Enjoy.

Here are the lyrics:

I see love and beauty all around,
I also see the sadness that’s embedded in your frown
I wonder why you choose not to talk to those who surround,
I sense a fear of lifting heavy feet
higher than you want to,
I just want to believe your truth…

you stand there but you do not cast a shadow,
you walk away with every word you choose not to say
I suppose that moving on paints a new colour for each day,
I don’t like to see
dreams put on the shelf, to deal with on that one day,
I just want to be happy for you

’cause I only have one second, this minute today
I can’t press rewind and turn it back and call it now
and so this moment, I just have to sing out loud
and say I love I like and breathe in now
and say I love I live and breathe in now

I move on holding on to what I learn,
it’s time to let go of the notion
that the whole world’s against me
break free of shackles that formed young, time free in now
and now I know, it’s not all up to me, I can count on another
so move on lighter and be free ….

’cause I only have one second, this minute today
I can’t press rewind and turn it back and call it now
and so this moment, I just have to sing out loud
and say I love I like and breathe in now
and say I love I live and breathe in now

I believe in for today I just want to know that you’re okay
cause I believe in breathing just for today
I just want to know that you’re okay….

’cause I only have one second, this minute today
I can’t press rewind and turn it back and call it now
and so this moment, I just have to sing out loud
and say I love I like and breathe in now
and say I love I live and breathe in now
and say I love I live and breathe in now
