VELVETEEN

(Shive/Wells/Witt)

 

Love spoke my name

And I felt life run through me

Reborn in the flames

Nothing can undo me

Ooh, I believe that I'm becoming

 

So if my beauty starts to fade

Well, I've been held in a thousand ways

If my heart looks broken in

Then I've been brave enough to live

If perfect turns to perfect mess

And all your love is all that's left

Then I'm as real as real can be

Call me Velveteen

 

Shadow and light

I've learned to let them find me

Coming alive

Feels a lot like dying

Ooh, I believe that I'm becoming

 

So if my beauty starts to fade

Well, I've been held in a thousand ways

If my heart looks broken in

Then I've been brave enough to live

If perfect turns to perfect mess

And all your love is all that's left

Then I'm as real as real can be

Call me Velveteen

 

I know it's true no matter, 

True no matter how I feel

'Cause I'm becoming

I'm becoming real

 

So if my beauty starts to fade

If my heart looks broken in

If my beauty starts to fade

Well, I've been held in a thousand ways

If my heart looks broken in

Then I've been brave enough to live

If perfect turns to perfect mess

And all your love is all that's left

Then I'm as real as real can be

Then I'm as real as real can be

Then I'm as real as real can be

Call me Velveteen

DOWN DOWN LOW (new single!)

It was campaign season here in the US, and like most people, my ears were so tired of the ugliness. Many of us had to be intentional about taking a break from social media because it seemed no place was safe from strife. I personally felt challenged, because I want to be a good listener and want to know how to share my thoughts in a loving way. What if we listened with genuine curiosity, our minds open to the possibility of having been wrong? Open to change... At the very least, eager to love and ready to accept that there might be more than one way to see...
