Fix You – Straight No Chaser

Wow.  It’s amazing how fast time goes. These past few months have gone extremely fast, but have also been so much fun.  I’ve taken some great trips, spent time with great friends, touched people’s lives with music, and begun that next chapter of my life I once thought was only in my dreams.  I’m also EXTREMELY excited for this summer and everything I have planned.  **Insert great line here about how thankful I am that I forgot to change my passport to my married name after the wedding!**  I’m ready to use it this summer!  (More details to come about all the trips I have planned…I can’t wait!)

So it’s no secret that I fell in love with the group Straight No Chaser and saw them in concert recently.  The song “Fix You” (originally by Coldplay) has played on my iPod for MONTHS now, and it still never gets old.  I am absolutely blown away by the voices of the 10 men singing in this song.  My favorite line: “I promise you I will learn from my mistakes.”  Not only do I love the harmonies and singing at that moment in the song, but I also love those words.  I PROMISE you that I will not make the same mistakes again.  The mistake of allowing God to not be in control of my life.  The mistake of allowing one person to control my self-worth.  The mistake of trusting someone to love me who had decided to love someone else.  “When you love someone but it goes to waste, could it be worse?”  This last year has definitely been a struggle, and it’s not been easy to look back onto everything that took place and forgive those people who hurt me so deeply.  I’ve also learned though that it is something COMPLETELY different to forgive yourself for ALLOWING them to hurt you.  I’m still not sure which one is more difficult to do.  I pray every day for contentment in my life, and I ask God to give me peace in my heart.  As I look back on this “one year” date, I can only be so proud of the woman I’ve become through this process.  I’m very blessed and grateful for such a wonderful life.

So, these songs below are two videos I took during the concert.  One is “Fix You,” and the other is a “Movie Medley” they sang as well.  Although it’s never the same on a YouTube video as in person, I hope you enjoy hearing these songs as much as I do.

Fix You – Straight No Chaser

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.

And high up above earth 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 if you want to hear a recorded version of this song, I’ve attached that video below:
