Songs I Like: Sara Bareilles – “She Used to Be Mine”

What a beautiful, sad song. Oh, Sara. When will you head over to my island?

It’s not what I asked for
Sometimes life just slips in through a back door
And carves out a person
Who makes you believe it’s all true
Now I’ve got you
You’re not what I asked for
If I’m honest I know I would give it all back 
For a chance to start over 
And rewrite an ending or two
For the girl that I knew

Who’ll be reckless just enough
Who’ll get hurt 
But who learns how to toughen up
When she’s bruised and gets used
By a man who can’t love
And then she’ll get stuck
And be scared of the life that’s inside her
Going stronger each day
Till it finally reminds her
To fight just a little
To bring back the fire in her eyes
That’s been gone but used to be mine
