Fan-Choice, Song Lyric 2

On Fridays I like to let loose and have a little fun on Facebook. I've done hangman, crossword-puzzle-style hints, word scrambles, and even "caption this picture!" But last Friday I wanted to hear something from you. I wanted you to step in and inspire me.

So I asked for a song lyric and promised to turn those song lyrics into blog posts!

Lyric Number 2 was:
"You could resurrect a thousand words to deceive me, more and more. A thousand words will give the reasons why, I don't need you anymore."
For those who don't know, the lyric is from Savage Garden's 'A Thousand Words'

~*~*~ my thoughts ~*~*~

Back in the day, Savage Garden was one of my very favorite bands, and there's still something special about them that brings out that old sense of nostalgia. Old music, old memories.

This song has an indescribable feel to me, with music that makes your head rock with the up-beat. Then if you look deeper, there are lyrics that speak of honesty/dishonesty and all of the various things that spring from the simple thing we call a "lie."

Lies.
Aren't they horrible things?
Easily tiresome, easily wearying the spirit.

This song speaks to the importance of honesty in a relationship, whether it be a friendship or a romantic relationship. Why? Because "you can resurrect a thousand words to deceive me, more and more."

But ...
"A thousand words will give the reasons why, I don't need you anymore."

Isn't that empowering?
Have a listen for yourself.

Thanks to Dana Fetters for suggesting this song!! What a memory come-back!
