“Your Song”

November is just flying by so fast! I can’t believe Thanksgiving is next week! 😮

Last week, in my post, “What a Wonderful World,” I wrote about one of the songs that I love that expresses gratitude.

This week, I wanted to write about another beautiful song that expresses gratitude, Elton John’s “Your Song.” Check out this moving video:

The lyrics are as follows:

It’s a little bit funny, this feeling inside
I’m not one of those who can easily hide, I
Don’t have much money but boy, if I did
I’d buy a big house where we both could live

If I was a sculptor but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a traveling show
Oh, I know it’s not much but it’s the best I can do
My gift is my song
And this one’s for you

And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it’s done
I hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind
That I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world

I sat on the roof and kicked up the moss
Well, a few of the verses, well, they’ve got me quite cross
But the sun’s been quite kind
While I wrote this song
It’s for people like you that
Keep it turned on

So excuse me forgetting
But these things, I do
You see, I’ve forgotten
If they’re green or they’re blue
Anyway, the thing is, what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I’ve ever seen

 

And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but
Now that it’s done
I hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind
That I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world
I hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind
That I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world

I just love how the song is about trying to figure out what you can do to show someone how much you truly appreciate him/her. I also love that the song expresses that the best way to express gratitude for someone who is absolutely incredible is to express it in a  way that allows one to stay true to oneself.

Think about someone who you really appreciate, and make sure to show him/her how grateful you are for him/her. ❤
