These lyrics touched my heart today,
"I used to live in a darkened room
Had a face of stone and a heart of gloom
Lost my hope, I was so far gone.
Cryin' all my tears with the curtains drawn.
I didn't know until my soul broke free,
I've got these angels watching over me.
I used to hide in a party crowd
Bottled up inside feeling so left out
Standing in a corner wearing concrete shoes
With my frozen smile and my lighted fuse.
Now every time I start to feel like that,
I roll my heart out like a welcome mat.
Laugh when I feel like it,
Cry when I feel like it
That's how my life is, that's how it goes.
Oh, watch me go, I'm a happy girl.
that the sweetest thing that you'll ever see
in the whole wide world
is a happy girl."
-Martina McBride, "Happy Girl."
I've had angels watching over me, learned to let myself laugh and cry, and I am trying to learn to "roll my heart out like a welcome mat." I am a Happy Girl.
