This week’s song ‘It Takes a Lot to Know a Man’ by Damien Rice, has been on my Music Monday to-do list for weeks and weeks, but I never had the right mood to actually post it up. This past week though I turned 30, celebrated Mother’s Day with family, and had an incredibly awesome party Saturday night with 14 of my more awesome friends in Uptown Dallas. There were make-out sessions, spontaneous singing, a LOT of drinking, and a stellar fun time making friends out of strangers.
Some of my favorite lyrics from this slow and lyric-driven piece of magnificence from Damien Rice?
It takes a lot to understand
The warrior, the sage
The little boy enraged
A lot to understand what’s humming
The honeybee, the sting
The little girl with wings
To be yourself, to know and love what you live with
It takes a lot to breathe, to touch, to feel
