We all have them – stories. I suppose that’s why we get to start blogs and post whatever the hell we want, when we want – raw and unfiltered (unless you live in Turkey). Funny stories, happy stories, sad stories, stories of romance and looooooove, stories passed down from our Dads and Moms, and boring stories that have no apparent relevance or purpose of any kind.

But if we didn’t have stories, and someone to tell them to, they wouldn’t mean anything – no matter how important they might be to us.

Brandi Carlile titled this track and her CD “The Story.” Here’s a performance of that song cut around excerpts from Grey’s Anatomy. If the music, words and singing don’t haunt you, you must be dead.

The Lyrics

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I’ve been
And how I got to where I am
But these stories don’t mean anything
When you’ve got no one to tell them to
It’s true… I was made for you

I climbed across the mountain tops
Swam all across the ocean blue
I crossed all the lines and I broke all the rules
But baby I broke them all for you
Oh because even when I was flat broke
You made me feel like a million bucks
You do and I was made for you

You see the smile that’s on my mouth
It’s hiding the words that don’t come out
And all of my friends who think that I’m blessed
They don’t know my head is a mess
No, they don’t know who I really am
And they don’t know what I’ve been through like you do
And I was made for you.

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I’ve been
And how I got to where I am
But these stories don’t mean anything
When you’ve got no one to tell them to
It’s true…I was made for you

Ohh yea it’s true… that I was made for you
