The Blonde One Was Called Freedom

Feel Good Mondays: Decide What to Be and Go Be It!

A couple of weeks ago I watched “Another Day/ Another Time: Celebrating the Music of Inside Llewyn Davis” and was reminded how much I love folk music.

The Avett Brothers were featured, and they performed one of my favorite songs.

Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise

There’s a darkness upon me that’s flooded in light
In the fine print they tell me what’s wrong and what’s right
And it comes in black and it comes in white
And I’m frightened by those who don’t see it

When nothing is owed, deserved or expected
And your life doesn’t change by the man that’s elected
If you’re loved by someone you’re never rejected
Decide what to be and go be it.

There was a dream
One day I could see it
Like a bird in a cage I broke in and demanded that somebody free it
And there was a kid, with a head full of doubt
So I scream til I die or the last of those bad thoughts are finally out

There’s a darkness upon you that’s flooded in light
In the fine print they tell you what’s wrong and what’s right
And it flies by day and it flies by night
And I’m frightened by those who don’t see it

This is one of the few songs I actually enjoy reading about online. People come up with all sorts of cockamamie interpretations of songs. But I’m always intrigued by what people come up with for this song and I have no idea why.

At the end of the day, what I get out of it is there’s no promise to what you’ll be able to achieve in life and your definition of success is not universal. But as long as you remember that having a bit of love in your life means you’re not a failure? You’re good. So figure out what you want to do and go for it, remembering that lesson on love when you feel down.

Maybe remember that for 2014.
