#MusicMonday: My Sacrifice

It has been a while since I have done #MusicMonday, and today’s music choice is a little different than the others.

There are times in our lives where we feel we must make sacrifices because at the time, we felt it was the right thing to do. Like for instance, having to give up something or someone we have to let go of because it was something we had to do. For ourselves. For our growth.

I had picked the song, My Sacrifice by Creed because when I first heard of it as a teenager, it spoke to me. Not only do I love rock music, but I love when the song is fitting to what I am going through at different times of my life.

This song can be interpreted in many ways. It could be the love you have for yourself (inner self, inner child, past self), for someone who had passed away, a special someone in your life who is still alive, for a spiritual connection or being, or what have you. The lyrics are fitting, beautiful, and inspiring.

As I think about this song as someone in her thirties, it’s like the meaning of the song is someone talking to themselves after coming out of the dark or whatever they have gone through.

Take this song and its lyrics as you see fit, for it has so many different interpretations.

 

 

LYRICS:

[Verse 1]
Hello my friend, we meet again
It’s been a while, where should we begin?
Feels like forever
Within my heart are memories
Of perfect love that you gave to me
Oh, I remember

[Chorus]
When you are with me, I’m free
I’m careless, I believe
Above all the others, we’ll fly

This brings tears to my eyes
My sacrifice

[Verse 2]
We’ve seen our share of ups and downs
Oh, how quickly life can turn around
In an instant
It feels so good to reunite
Within yourself and within your mind
Let’s find peace there

[Chorus]
Because when you are with me, I’m free
I’m careless, I believe
Above all the others, we’ll fly
This brings tears to my eyes
My sacrifice

[Bridge]
I just want to say hello again
I just want to say hello again

[Chorus]
Because when you are with me, I’m free
I’m careless, I believe
Above all the others, we’ll fly
This brings tears to my eyes
My sacrifice
Because when you are with me, I’m free
I’m careless, I believe
Above all the others, we’ll fly
This brings tears to my eyes
My sacrifice

[Outro]
I just want to say hello again
I just want to say hello again
I just want to say hello again
My sacrifice
