Lyrics of my Life

These are a few of my favorite songs with "Feel Good" lyrics that keep me going and make me feel good to be Lizzie Love. The songs are not complete, just threw in a few of my favorite lines.

Crazy by Meredith Brooks
This town's always gonna think I'm a little crazy
Somebody's always gonna try to label me insane
Funny how I always seem to be the one who's crazy
I just wanna live, I don't wanna fit
If that makes me crazy, then I am...
I just want to live
I don't want to fit
I just want to try
I don't want to quit
If that makes me crazy, I am.

Mariella by Kate Nash
I'm far too loud
It's like, as soon as I've got an opinion
It just has to come out
I laugh at stupid things
Just 'cause they tickle me...
But Mariella just smiled as she skipped down the road
Because she knew all the secrets in her world.

Self Portrait by Stephanie Smith
All of these dreams in my head keep spinning round
I'm grabbing my paper and pencil to pin em down
I'll sketch my world as a prettier place
and draw myself with a smiley face
and make this picture perfect
But all of these lines on my page won't mean anything
until I learn to erase the one's that I don't need
I'm covering up the stupid mistakes and starting
over and over again to make this picture perfect
yeah yeah I'll start where I'm standing now
and begin shaping where I want to be
No one can tear my picture down
because it's me
and as long as I'm still proud of this self portrait I'm creating
I'm doing fine yeah I'm doing fine yeah
Every now and again someone comes along
they try to box me into a corner I've drawn
pushing the walls down struggling free
so I can keep making this picture perfect yeah yeah
I'll start with where I'm standing now
and begin shaping where I want to be
no one can tear my picture down
because it's me
and as long as I'm still proud of this self portrait I'm creating
I'm doing fine yeah I'm doing fine yeah
What I'm sketching doesn't have to be anything fancy
no I'm just shaping stronger sides of me of me of me
yeah yeah yeah I'll start with where I'm standing now
and begin shaping where I want to be
no one can tear my picture down because it's me
and as long as I'm still proud of this self portrait I'm creating
I'm doing fine yeah I'm doing fine yeah I'm doing fine I'm doing fine.

New Soul by Yael Naim
I'm a new soul in this very strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit 'bout how to give and take
But since I came here, felt the joy and the fear
Finding myself making every possible mistake
See I'm a young soul in this very strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit 'bout what is true and fake
But why all this hate? try to communicate
Finding trust and love is not always easy to make

That's Life by Frank Sinatra
That's life, that's what all the people say.You're riding high in April, Shot down in May
But I know I'm gonna change that tune, When I'm back on top, back on top in June. I said that's life, and as funny as it may seem. Some people get their kicks,stompin' on a dream
But I don't let it, let it get me down,'Cause this fine ol' world it keeps spinning around
I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a king. I've been up and down and over and out and I know one thing: Each time I find myself, flat on my face, I pick myself up and get back in the race. That's life, I tell ya, I can't deny it,I thought of quitting baby, But my heart just ain't gonna buy it. And if I didn't think it was worth one single try, I'd jump right on a big bird and then I'd fly...

Is Self Portrait from the newer version of Pride and Prejudice? We watch that movie ALL the time and Stephanie got the soundtrack for Christmas a couple of years ago. It is awesome!

Sorry about my bad spelling.

You rock and I love your blog!
