It Spoke to Me

For those who know me, they know I’m a pretty big Lady Gaga fan. I love that she lets her freak flag fly in the wind and sets her sails in the face of strong winds. Her music has broken through many of my moods. This time is no exception. Today while I was in the car, I found myself drawn to one of the songs from her latest album, “Born This Way.” Although I couldn’t understand quite all of the lyrics, I found myself replaying it over and over.

When I got home tonight, I fired up my trusty search engine and typed in “Lady Gaga Lyrics Hair” and I pulled up the song on my ‘puter.

Then I listened as I read. The following things jumped off the page and slapped me in the cerebral cortex.

I just wanna be myself,
And I want you to love, me for who I am.
I just wanna be myself,
And I want you to know, I am my hair.

No wonder I’ve been drawn to this song. I’ve been thinking the same thing for a while now. But wait, there’s more…

I just wanna be free, I just wanna be me.
And I want lots of friends that invite me to their parties.
I don’t want to change, and I don’t want to be ashamed.
I’m the spirit of my hair, it’s all the glory that I bare.

I don’t want to change, but I don’t want to be the same either. I just want to be who I am, who I become or who I’ve already morphed into.

I’ve had enough, I’m not a freak.
I’m just here trying to stay cool on the streets.

Anyway, I thought I would share it with you. If you want to experience the moment I had, I used this page and I’ve embed the song below.

  1. I thought I was the only one that did that with songs that spoke to me… And there’s some good lyrics here. I can see why they spoke to you. I think a lot of us can identify.

  2. Those are some pretty deep meaningful lyrics. It is amazing how we can find a song that seems to speak to us, or talk about whatever problem or situation we are going through at the time.

    Sometimes for me, the emotion conveyed in the music means more than the music itself. And sometimes I find myself listening to or even liking songs in a musical genre that is totally different than what I prefer because of the lyrics.

    Great lyrics can be poetry for the soul, an antidote to unhealthy emotions or a great way to express how you feel.

    • What I love most about Gaga is that she is usually discredited because of the outlandish things she does, but when you really listen to the words, you hear some of the greatest talent.

      …And she has the singing chops to match.
