some big things are happening in our life right now and the lyrics of this song, by Ivan & Alyosha, perfectly encapsulate these changes.
Living for Someone
by Ivan & Alyosha
The world is breaking down But we are marching forward My friends are breaking ground And loving one another We were not living for ourselves But we were living for someone else
I might just quit my job And sell my fine possessions Expecting our first child Amid the Great Recession We count less than you it’s true It was the spirit of the age Ain’t it funny how nothing really ever changes
Now draw the line between What you want and what you need Now tell me what you see Turn your blessings into what it couldn’t be You were not living for yourself But you were living for something else
And so you limit your own mind You never were the dreamin’ kind Cause someone told you ‘No’ when you were young You never find the things you want
