It’s Always ” in the Blood”

 

 

 

 

 

 

It really is amazing where this writer finds her inspiration! Sometimes a blurb on the news or a passionate song blaring on the radio motivates me to jot down  thoughts and ideas for my blog. Yesterday I heard another song on my car radio that I love and it energized me to write. Unlike many songs, it was the words that strongly spoke to me.

 

 

 

 

Have you heard, In the Blood by John Mayer? If you haven’t, look it up and absorb the lyrics.

 

 

 

 

How much of my mother has my mother left in me?
How much of my love will be insane to some degree?
And what about this feeling that I’m never good enough?
Will it wash out in the water, or is it always in the blood?
How much of my father am I destined to become?
Will I dim the lights inside me just to satisfy someone?
Will I let this woman kill me, or do away with jealous love?
Will it wash out in the water, or is it always in the blood?
I can feel love the I want, I can feel the love I need
But it’s never gonna come the way I am
Could I change it if I wanted, can I rise above the flood?
Will it wash out in the water, or is it always in the blood?
How much like my brothers, do my brothers wanna be?
Does a broken home become another broken family?
Or will we be there for each other, like nobody ever could?
Will it wash out in the water, or is it always in the blood?
I can feel love the I want, I can feel the love I need
But it’s never gonna come the way I am
Could I change it if I wanted, could I rise above the flood?
Will it wash out in the water, or is it always in the blood?
I can feel the love I want, I can feel the love I need
But it’s never gonna come the way I am
Could I change it if I wanted, can I rise above the flood?
Will it wash out in the water, or is it always in the blood?
Songwriters: John Mayer

Family.

 

Love.

 

Loyalty.

 

It will always be in the blood.

 

There aren’t enough words to describe my feelings for my family, my blood.

 

Perhaps my pictures can depict the enormous grasp that my family holds me in.

 

Will this song will speak to your heart? It sure touched my soul.

 

 

Love to you all.

All My Best,

Heart and Soul >3

  1. Thanks for typing out those lyrics. It’s funny to hear people saying now how much our new little granddaughter looks like our son. There’s a lot of significance in blood even beyond our family lines. Fun collages of your families…

  2. Agree Mary– family does have a hold on me too. It’s where we spend our time and energy–keeping in touch with kids scattered far & wide, taking care of parents close by.

  3. I’m happy that you enjoyed them. the first picture on the left is Tom and I with our youngest son when he graduated and the one across from it on the right is my nephews Luke and Spencer, my sister’s sons. Luke just graduated from high school. There are pictures of my dad and my niece Ella, my mom and sister, my son and his girlfriend Lexie, my mother in law, etc. Have a great day, Rhonda! 🙂

  4. Rhonda, there’s also a picture of Tom and his sister Mary, a picture of him, his sister, mom and I at the airport in Florida. Pictures of his dad are at the closing of the post along with my aunt and uncle who have all passed away but are not forgotten.
