Song that represents my life

Get to know this name ladies and gents: Brandi Carlile–cause you are going to hear it a shit ton.

This song is off her upcoming album, and straight outta the horse’s mouth, is one of, if not the most, personal song she’s ever written.  And it’s quite evident… if you can’t relate to these lyrics, I hate you.

Watch the Live performance:

“I Will”  (as interpreted by me… could be wrong about some of them)

It’s not the end of the world.
It’s not even over, but it will be soon.
I never learn my lessons, I just change my tune.
No one seems to notice, but you will.
You will.

It’s no big deal.  That you’re the  last thing I think of when I close my eyes.
And the first thing on my mind, when I arise it’s the day.
And you’re not really in my life.

You can try, but you won’t find it where you’re looking.
You can’t hold it til it’s putty in your hands.
You can’t break a heart that wasn’t even yours to break.
You could never be there for me in the end.
But, I will do the right thing.
I will.
I will.
I…will.
I will.
I will.
I…will.

You’re not fooling me.
I’m not the sorta girl who can’t see reason.
But, it’s nothing that a little bit of time won’t heal.
I know it don’t come easy, but I love you.
I do.

Coming clean, means never closing curtains I just change my scene.
Oh, but you know what I mean and I will learn throughout my life
to not lean on what will bend.

You can try, but I won’t find it where I’m looking.
I can’t hold it til it’s putty in my hands.
I can’t break a heart that wasn’t even mine to break.
You could never be there for me in the end.
But, I will do the right thing.
I will.
I will.
I…will.
I will.
I will.
I…will.

I don’t think you ever learned a thing from me.
But, I know that you want me to learn from you.
And you draw heavy handed lines around morality
about yourself and I don’t share your point of view.

It’s been time to let you go.
A thousand times and you’ll never know
but this has to be the one that you’ll regret
I have to say that I am proud to know you.
And I’ll never be the same because we met.
You might not miss this, but I will.
I will.
I…will.
I will.
I will.
I…will.
