Brandi Carlile -The Story

November 23, 2010

Grey’s Anatomy has made songs and artists famous. Their selections are perfect. Somehow, the music always supports the mood, the moment, the storyline on what has turned out to be my favorite TV show. {And surprisingly, also my husband’s.} The audience hears a song and, attached to the characters, the situation, the story, has to have it.

Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol? Who could forget that scene with Izzy and Denny? I’ve loved that song since.

The writers are planning a musical episode (which would worry me if it weren’t Grey’s Anatomy). I’m thinking this might be one of the songs they pick. GREAT lyrics below.

The Story

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I’ve been
And how I got to where I am
But these stories don’t mean anything
When you’ve got no one to tell them to
It’s true…I was made for you

I climbed across the mountain tops
Swam all across the ocean blue
I crossed all the lines and I broke all the rules
But baby I broke them all for you
Because even when I was flat broke
You made me feel like a million bucks
Yeah you do and I was made for you

You see the smile that’s on my mouth
Is hiding the words that don’t come out
And all of my friends who think that I’m blessed
They don’t know my head is a mess
No, they don’t know who I really am
And they don’t know what I’ve been through but you do
And I was made for you…
