Music Monday – Something Wild

I’m still feeling the call of the wild, and absolutely loving this song right now…

 

Something Wild

 

“You had your maps drawn

you had other plans

to hang your hopes on

every road they led you down felt so wrong

so you found another way

 

You’ve got a big heart

the way you see the world

it got you this far 

you may have some bruises

and a few scars

but you know you’re gonna be okay

 

Even though you’re scared

you’re stronger than you know

 

If you’re lost out where the lights are blinding

caught , and all the stars are hiding

that’s when something wild calls you home

if you face the fear that keeps you frozen

chase the sky into the ocean

that’s when something wild calls you home

 

Sometimes the past can

make the ground beneath you feel like quicksand

you don’t have to worry

reach for my hand

and I know you’re gonna be okay

you’re gonna be okay

 

Even if you’re scared

you’re stronger than you know

 

If you’re lost out where the lights are blinding

caught, and all the stars are hiding

that’s when something wild calls you home

If you face the fear that keeps you frozen

chase the sky into the ocean

that’s when something wild calls you home…”

Such a great video for this song with the two children out adventuring, and I love the violin, but what I love most is the lyrics.  The words that really speak to me right now are…

 

“If you face the fear that keeps you frozen

chase the sky into the ocean

that’s when something wild calls you home

 

Even if you’re scared

you’re stronger than you know”

 

Whatever fears you may be facing, I’m wishing you strength and hope on this Monday, and as always…

  9. Lindsey Stirling is one of my favorite artists of all time! This song is on her new album “Brave Enough.” There are so many lyrically beautiful songs of hers.
