Lyrical Musing: Fix You

2012.03 St George Spring Blossoms (18 of 21)
In an attempt to get back to one of my great loves (and the original inspiration for this blog) on Fridays I'm sharing a song I heard during the week where the lyrics made me stop and think. A lyric that made me suddenly realize something new, inspired me to change or look at something differently.

This week's song is from Coldplay: Fix You.

"When you get what you want, but not what you need."

I couldn't help but think of how many times in life I haven't recognized the difference in what I want and what I need. The song made me grateful for my faith in a God who know and loves me and sometimes doesn't answer those prayers I send up for things I want - but which He knows are really not what I need.

Did you hear a song this week that made you stop and think? Pin It

That's a beautiful spring image Jamie. Want and need are funny things. Before I buy something I think "do I really want to give my hard earned money to this store for this?" It helps slow down my spending and think about what I need vs want.
As for the "big" things in life, they come to us when ready and pass us by when timing is not right. Have a great day. Wonderful thoughts to ponder.
p.s. Music is your mojo.

It's a pretty awesome song indeed! My favorite quote from a song is "You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you might just find, you get what you need". From "You can't always get what you want" by The Stones! Kinda the same idea. I love songs like this!

Knowing the difference between what I want and need is still a problem at times so you are not alone there. Glad you are finding your blog purpose again

That really is an amazing song...and yes, there is something to be said for getting what you need...not what you want. A good reminder for me right now too...

"Fix You" is one of my favorite songs. It is so difficult at times to decipher what we want as opposed to what we need. So thankful we have a Heavenly Father who will do that for us. Love you :)
