Lyrics and Life

We all have songs that resonate with us, no matter what is going on in our lives, there is always that song that when we hear it, we stop what we are doing and we think.
Lyrics can be so powerful. They can save us and send us on new paths. Sometimes it is as though the artist/ songwriter is writing specifically for us - as if they know what we need to hear and that we need to be reminded that how we feel - others feel the same.

I have a few songs that remind me of different times of my life and which helped my thoughts at the time, maybe I will save those for a different post! But the main song and lyrics which make me stop and which remind me of where I am and where I need to be is Rewind by Stereophonics. It is a beautiful song and reminds me that I should never compromise who or what I want to be.

In the answer to the question, if I could rewind my time, would I change my life? No, I wouldn't. All things happen for reasons and that includes the hard stuff, but sometimes, it only takes a song to remind us of that fact and that it will all be ok.


Here are the lyrics:

It's your time
It's your day

It's never too late

To change lanes

How's your life?

How's your place?

Was it where you wanted

Your head to lay?


But wait, you can breathe

You can see what I can see

Don't waste your time

You can't make back


If you could rewind your time

Would you change your life?


Do you like you?

Do you love your wife?

Or did you pick what

You're told was right?


Dream and be

What you feel

Don't you compromise

What you wanna be


'Cause change is okay

What's the point in staying the same

Regrets, forget what's dead and gone


If you could rewind your time

Would you change your life?


If Jesus rode in on a camel today

With your cross on his shoulder

Time to take you away

Have you done all you wanted?

Are you happy and warm?

Do you miss someone special

You don't see anymore?

Have you blood on your hands?

Do you dream of white sands?

Can you sleep well at night?

Have you done all you can?

The place I was born in

Stays crooked and straight

I see innocent blue eyes

Go blind everyday


Rewind your time

Would you change your life

Today?
