Tag: Three-Day Lyrical Challenge (Day 2)

Time for Day 2 of the Lyrical Challenge. Thanks again to Alyssa Grace for tagging me.

The rules are simple:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Share one of your favorite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.
  3. Nominate three other bloggers each day.

For this one I am going to go with a country song. Country is one of my favorite music genres. I grew up on country music. I like that many of the times the songs tell a story.
I also like that certain lyrics speak to me at different times in my life.

Laura’s Alaina’s song was one of those songs that hit a chord with me. Specifically the line, “I’m doing fine enough to know that everyone’s a little broken.”

“I’m Doing Fine”

Daddy got sober, Mama got his best friend
I’ve cut down crying to every other weekend
Thanks for asking how I’ve been
I’ve gotten to good at hiding it within
I’m okay, things are great but the truth is
Yeah, the truth is

I’m doing fine enough to know that everyone’s a little broken
Fine enough to learn that hearts are best when they’re wide open
I still got fear inside of me
I’m not okay but I’m gonna be alright
For the first time in a long time I’m doing fine
I’m doing fine

Daddy signed the papers the day I turned 19
Mama drove north to find a new beginning
I blamed God I blamed myself
Then I fell on my knees and prayed like hell
It’s funny how a touch of grace gives you healing
Yeah, I’m healing

I’m doing fine enough to know that everyone’s a little broken
Fine enough to learn that hearts are best when they’re wide open
I still got fear inside of me
I’m not okay but I’m gonna be alright
For the first time in a long time I’m doing fine
I’m doing fine

Oh these growing pains well I wish they’d go away
But I guess you can’t be free without a fight

I’m doing fine enough to know that everyone’s a little broken
Fine enough to learn that hearts are best when they’re wide open
I still got fear inside of me
I’m not okay but I’m gonna be alright
For the first time in a long, long time I’m doing fine
I’m doing fine

Daddy got sober, Mama got his best friend
But I’m doing fine, yeah

Since my follower list and computer are being super annoying and not letting me copy and paste or tag anyone. I am going to tag whoever wants to do this challenge this time!
