Songs with Meaning: Beautiful Disaster

I am starting a new feature on the blog, “Songs with Meaning!”

Occasionally I will post a song that I find inspiring as a survivor.  I hope you find them inspiring too. And don’t forget to suggest songs that you would like to see featured in the comments. I am always looking for new songs.

So here we go, my first “Song of the Week!” Beautiful Disaster by Jon McLaughlin.

Songwriters: Jamie Houston & Jonathan Mclaughlin

She loves her mama’s lemonade,
Hates the sounds that goodbyes make.
She prays one day she’ll find someone to need her.
She swears that there’s no difference,
Between the lies and complements.
It’s all the same if everybody leaves her.

And every magazine tells her she’s not good enough,
The pictures that she sees make her cry.

And she would change everything, everything just ask her.
Caught in the in between of beautiful disaster,
And she needs someone to take her home.

She’s giving boys what they want, tries to act so nonchalant,
Afraid they’ll see that she’s lost her direction.
She never stays the same for long,
Assuming that she’ll get it wrong.
Perfect only in her imperfection.

She’s not a drama queen,
She doesn’t want to feel this way, only seventeen but tired

She would change everything for happy ever after.
Caught in the in between of beautiful disaster,
But she just needs someone to take her home.

Cuz she’s just the way she is, but no ones told her that’s ok.

And she would change everything, everything just ask her.
Caught in the in between of beautiful disaster,

And she would change everything for happy ever after.
Caught in the in between of beautiful disaster,

But she just needs someone to take her home
And just needs someone to take her home.
