A Moment with Henry: Chanson de l'Annee

My birthday is on Thursday, which means it is time for me to pick a new song of the year.


See, every year I pick a theme song for myself, a song I can listen to when I want to remember what I'm working on right now, and who I already am, and remembering who I want to become. This past year was "Alexythemia" by Anberlin. Sort of a no brainer, I mean, the age was right there in the song, "are you where you thought you'd be? So beautiful and only 23."


For Twenty four I have chosen "Something Left to Give" by The Starting Line. I love this song because the expression, to me is that I have realized that I have a lot to give. I have also been  given a lot as well. Furthermore, as I continue forward in life I'm going to discover that I have so much more that I haven't given yet, but that I will. The world is my oyster, as it were.


I've got stars in my great big sky
I shall gaze upon without leaving small ones behind,
because they're harder to find.


Some were satellites, others planes, 
some were twinkling, while others were fading away-
but they're all one of a kind.


Oh, its not that interesting, but I'd like to keep it a secret
so I'll have something left to give.
Its not that difficult when you've  got a luck of this kind.
We've got to take advantage
we've got such limited time.


Oh I wonder, oh I wonder,
how long it'd take me to die.
Oh its not that interesting, but,
I'd like to keep it a secret so I'll have 
something left to give.


And I'll hear my children and grandchildren sing:
"La la la la de da da,
la la la la de da da
la la la la de da da."


Oh its not that interesting but
I'd like to keep it a secret
so I'll have something left to give.
in my remaining years here, when I am old and plain lazy
I'll have a little something left to give.


To all those who've loved me so much
I'd like to return the favor
and have something left to give.


And I'll hear my children and grand children sing...


It's not that difficult when you've got a luck of this kind.
To all those who loved me so much I'd like to return the favor.
I wonder, oh I wonder how long it'd take me to die...


Oh its not that interesting but, I'd like to keep it a secret 
and have
something left to give.
