Day 7: Something More

I am such a country music fan.  Yeah, it took me a while to realize that and maybe looking at my iPhone and my iPod’s playlist helped as well.  I didn’t realize it until yesterday when I was updating my playlist and saw that they are filled with Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Taylor Swift, Sugarland, and Tim McGraw to name a few.

Anyways, while I was listening to my iPod and my Sugarland albums, I found one song that would be a good song to start the week with.  It’s from their Twice the Speed of Life album.  The title of the song?  It’s “Something More“.

What can I say about this song?  Well, it’s a cool song and it’s a song that I’m currently trying to learn to play on my guitar.  The song also has some of the sentiments that most people are thinking and feeling.

One particular line to the song struck me…well, technically, the whole song did but this one line stuck:  I could work my life away, but why? I got things to do before I die.  Okay, so maybe that’s two lines.

It struck me because it’s kind of a good question.  Most people do nothing but work, and work, and work.  It’s not bad but sometimes we have to remember that there is more to life than that.  I think that what the song is saying as ‘something more’ is actually the “living the life that we were given” thing, not just cruising through it.  We have to take in the scenery and let loose once in a while.

I think that most people take life too seriously that they forget to actually live and enjoy it…and before they know it, they’re lives had come and gone.  Sometimes I wonder if, when we die, we’re not just going to be asked what we did in life.  I think that we would be also asked: What did you enjoy in life?  What did you love about life?  Did you actually live your life?  I wonder what our answer to those questions would be?  That’s something to think about, wouldn’t you say?

Anyways, you can download the songs from iTunes or buy the album from Amazon or from music stores near you that actually have a decent collection of albums and soundtracks…so, huh, yeah.

Below’s the lyrics to the song, and while you’re listening to this song I’ll go on ahead and continue listening to the rest of my collection.  Heh, you never could go wrong with country music.

Monday, hard to wake up
Fill my coffee cup, I’m out the door
Yeah, the freeway’s standing still today
It’s gonna make me late, and thats for sure
I’m running out of gas and out of time
Never gonna make it there by nine

There’s gotta be something more
Gotta be more than this
I need a little less hard time
I need a little more bliss
I’m gonna take my chances
Taking any chance I might
Find what I’m looking for
There’s gotta be something more

Five years and there’s no doubt
That I’m burnt out, I’ve had enough
So now boss man, here’s my two weeks
I’ll make it short and sweet, so listen up
I could work my life away, but why?
I got things to do before die

There’s gotta be something more
Gotta be more than this
I need a little less hard time
I need a little more bliss
I’m gonna take my chances
Taking any chance I might
Find what I’m looking for
There’s gotta be something more

Some believe in destiny, and some believe in fate
I believe that happiness is something we create
You best belive that I’m not gonna wait
‘Cause there’s gotta be something more

I get home 7:30 the house is dirty, but it can wait
Yeah, ’cause right now I need some downtime
To drink some red wine and celebrate
Hey, Armageddon could be knocking at my door
But I ain’t gonna answer thats for sure.
There’s gotta be something more!

There’s gotta be something!

There’s gotta be something more
Gotta be more than this
I need a little less hard time
I need a little more bliss
I’m gonna take my chances
Taking any chance I might
Find what I’m looking for
There’s gotta be something more

Got to be,
Got to be,
Got to be something more!
