GBE 2.4 - Control

So this week the topic is control. Seems like at one time or another, everyone wants and/or needs a little control.

That being said... Here is a flashback to listen to.

When I was 17, I did what people told me

Did what my father said, and let my mother mold me

But that was long ago


I'm in control, never gonna stop

Control, to get what I want

Control, I got to have a lot

Control, now I'm all grown up

First time I fell in love

I didn't know what hit me

So young and so naive

I thought it would be easy

But now I know I've got to take...

Repeat Chorus

That's right, I'm on my own,

I'll call my own shots, thank you


Got my own mind

I wanna make my own decisions

When it has to do with my life, my life

I wanna be the one in control

So let me take you by the hand

And lead you on this dance

Cause what I've got is because I took a chance

I don't wanna rule the world

Just wanna run my life

So make your life a little easier

When you get the chance just take...

Repeat Chorus

Free at last, out here on my own

Now control this

That's right, career moves

I do what's right for me

And me wants to groove

Is that ok?

Repeat Bridge

Hop to it

I'm in control (and I love it, that's right)

Control, now I've got a lot

Control, now I'm all grown up

I'm in control, I'm in control

Don't make me lose it

GBE 2.3 - Lost & Found (reversed)


Found and Lost

I remember when I first found her page on MySpace a few years ago. The page was so bright and summery. We became "MySpace friends" and slowly got to know each other. Over time, we became closer. We shared things. We talked. A lot.

We listened to each other. I tried to be a shoulder for her although I didn't entirely understand what she was going through. She got a piece of my heart.

She still has that piece, even though we grew apart. Like a star, our friendship flared and burned out, although it served a purpose. Still, in essence, I lost her. She will often cross my mind and I trust that she is doing well. I think she is.
