When you're so tired...

This is my take on my theme song for my life (Kara's idea) and also kinda sorta blatantly copying Tiff's post today. :D It isn't really my theme song for my whole life but it does describe the last 14 years of being sick.

Some of the lyrics in this song are just perfect. I've been singing "When you feel so tired but you can't sleep" line for the last 2 weeks. If you want, you can click on my playlist over there <- and play the songs while you read the lyrics (unless you already know them by heart like me.) Once you click on it, you can scroll around to pick a song.
Fix You
by Coldplay
When you try your best, but you don't succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse
And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you
When high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you
Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And I...
Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face
And I...
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And on a more positive note, I feel so very blessed in many ways in my life. I love this song by Sarah McLachlan. I like how it helps me remember that there are so many little miracles going on around me every day. Life is beautiful and a gift. I can wish and hope and pray for better health to enjoy it, but the truth is, I am very blessed in many ways, and I am so grateful.

Ordinary Miracle
It’s not that unusual
When everything is beautiful
It’s just another ordinary miracle today.
The sky knows when it’s time to snow,
Don’t need to teach a seed to grow,
It’s just another ordinary miracle today.
Life is like a gift they say
Wrapped up for you every day
Open up and find a way
To give some of your own love.
Isn’t it remarkable?
Like every time a raindrop falls
It’s just another ordinary miracle today.
Birds are meant to have their flame
They always make it home on spring
It’s just another ordinary miracle today.
When you wake up everyday
Please don’t throw your dreams away
Hold them close to your heart
‘Cause we are all a part of the ordinary miracle
Ordinary miracle,
Do you want to see a miracle?
It seems so exceptional
That things just work out after all
It’s just another ordinary miracle today.
The sun comes up and shines so bright
And disappears again at night
It’s just another ordinary miracle today.
It’s just another ordinary miracle today.
