Whatever It Takes

When I heard this new song by Lifehouse, I was stopped dead in my tracks. This is exactly what I wish my comfortable shoes would say to me. I've begged, but have gotten nothing.






A strangled smile fell from your face
It kills me that I hurt you this way
The worst part is that I didn't even know
Now there's a million reasons for you to go
But if you can find a reason to stay


I'll do whatever it takes
To turn this around
I know what's at stake
I know that I've let you down
And if you give me a chance
Believe that I can change
I'll keep us together whatever it takes


She said "If we're gonna make this work
You gotta let me inside even though it hurts
Don't hide the broken parts that I need to see
"She said "Like it or not it's the way it's gotta be
You gotta love yourself if you can ever love me"


I'll do whatever it takes
To turn this around
I know what's at stake
I know that I've let you down
And if you give me a chance
And give me a break
I'll keep us together,
I know you deserve much better


But remember the time I told you the way that I felt
That I'd be lost without you and never find myself
Let's hold onto each other above everything else
Start over, start over


I'll do whatever it takes
To turn this around
I know what's at stake
I know I've let you down
And if you give me a chance
and believe that I can change
I'll keep us together whatever it takes






Sadly, I know I won't hear these words (or lyrics, as it were) until it's far too late for my shoes. They're nearly cast aside now.



Those are my walking boots up there in my banner, by the way. I'm proud of them and they fit me really well. They feel good and I love them. Just never really thought I'd need a pair of them. Funny how life turns out.
