Monumental Soundbyte - 55

Monica - Getaway

Aggh! This song was not on my original list but ever since i heard this album, this song jumped out at me. Its actually my favorite track on her last cd and lately, the words just reflect what i feel and have been feeling for a while.

Here are some of the lyrics:

Sometimes I wish I was invisible
'Cause then no one will know
Where I am to ask me for anything
'Cause I've given so much of me
When is it time for me to receive
'Cause Monica has her needs
Who's going to look out for me?

Sometimes I wish I could hide away
Looking for a place to getaway
Getaway from all the heartache and pain that life can bring
I really don't want to sound
Like I can't hold my ground
But everybody needs some time
That they can getaway

You know I'm not superwoman
And I'm not made of steel
I try my best to handle
All I have to deal with
It's not as easy as it seems
And to think this was my dream
Now for everything I have I'm grateful
But sometimes I want to get away

Uncanny right? I swear Monica is actually a decent songwriter and what i especially love about her is the grit to her writing. No fancy words. Just emotions and honesty spilling over. Listen to this song by pressing play on the player under the soundbyte thingy.

I love this song because i can honestly say that i think most of us have felt this way at some point in time.
