my response {poetry, lyrics & music videos}

my friend, Becky Sain  {  @bsfirstpages }  had the lyrics below as part of  her post “Turn To Face Me” on her blog ‘First Pages’ last September.  she credited them to “Keane” and,  silly me,  i thought it was a poem from an Australian poet whose last name is Keane. just goes to show how much in touch i am with modern music.  at any rate, i was inspired to write my own poem then just let it sit in the drafts folder until now.  i’m not certain what song these lyrics are from ~ i didn’t think to ask Becky.


lyrics by Keane

Some days, feels my soul has left my body****
Feel I’m floating high above me****
Like I’m looking down upon me****

Start sinking, every time I get to thinking
It’s easier to keep on moving
Never stop to let the truth in

Sometimes I feel like a little lost child
Sometimes I feel like the chosen one
Sometimes I wanna shout out ’til everything goes quiet
Sometimes I wonder why I was ever born



my response

some days it feels like my soul has left my body

that it is blackened and burned and dead

like i can look at myself from the outside

and see the ugly stranger i have become

it’s easier not to look…     not to feel…

don’t let the truth in because it only brings pain

sometimes i feel like i’ll turn to ash and blow away

sometimes i feel like the world will be destroyed by my pain

sometimes i want to hurt every person who has hurt me

sometimes i wonder why i have to keep living




Keane    “My Shadow”



Keane, K’NAAN   “Stop For A Minute”
