Reflection

Save Myself 


     As I sit here drinking my morning coffee, I am reflecting on events that have happened the last few days.  Life is short and changes within seconds.  As I sit here feeling hurt or pissed, I think of a song by Ed Sheeran Save Myself from his new album.

The lyrics are:

I gave all my oxygen to people that could breathe 

I gave away my money and now we don’t even speak

I drove miles and miles, but would you do the same for me?

Oh, honestly?

Offered off my shoulder just for you to cry upon

Gave you constant shelter and a bed to keep you warm

They gave me the heartache and in return I gave a song

It goes on and on

Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels

I drown it with a drink and out-of-date prescription pills

And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf

No farewell

So before I save someone else, I’ve got to save myself

I gave you all my energy and I took away your pain

‘Cause human beings are destined to radiate or dream

What line do we stand upon ’cause from here looks the same?

And only scars remain

Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels

I drown it with a drink and out-of-date prescription pills

And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf

No farewell

So before I save someone else, I’ve got to save myself

But if don’t

Then I’ll go back

To where I’m rescuing a stranger

Just because they needed saving just like that

Oh, I’m here again

Between the devil and the danger

But I guess it’s just my nature

My dad was wrong

‘Cause I’m not like my mum

‘Cause she’d just smile and I’m complaining in a song

But it helps

So before I save someone else

I’ve got to save myself

Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels

I drown it with a drink and out-of-date prescription pills

And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf

No farewell

So before I save someone else, I’ve got to save myself

And before I blame someone else, I’ve got to save myself

And before I love someone else, I’ve got to love myself

With these words, I hope that one day I will make sense of why I let negative effect me.  We have to all live with our decisions and our destiny, so choose wisely.  I leave you with this:  I can’t save anyone because I have saved myself; I don’t blame anyone because I have saved myself and I can love someone else because I love myself.

XOXOXO-Michelle
