Besides having an AMAZING voice, I love listening to Jessie J’s lyrics. She always hits on something that strikes a chord with me.
Her newest album, Sweet Talker, that came out just a few weeks ago, doesn’t disappoint. Unlike Taylor Swift’s new album, I LOVED it from the first listen!
So what if it’s a total cliché of a song?? I love what she’s saying. This song may be about Jessie working on herself and her career, but I really think there is so much that we all can take from it.
They talk that blah blah, that la-la that rah-rah sh*t
Go with the punches, and take the hits
Sometimes I mess up, I f-up up, I swing and miss
But it’s okay, I’m cool with it
I still fall on my face sometimes
And I can’t colour inside the lines
‘Cause I’m perfectly incomplete
I’m still working on my masterpiece
Are you working on your masterpiece? I know I am.
We may fall down, but we can get back up! We may not feel well, but it doesn’t mean we ALWAYS won’t feel well. We may have bad times, but you can’t have the good with the bad!
What I take from this song is that it’s ok not to be ok. (haha ok, got me, referencing another Jessie J song) We’re not all expected to be 100% put together all of the time. How many times do we hear from ourselves, and others, to keep our heads up, things will get better, focus on the positives, go with the flow etc. Life is a journey and we won’t complete our masterpiece until the very end. Just like Bob Ross always said, there are no mistakes, just happy accidents 😉
So what, maybe in the grand scheme of things it’s a total cliché of a song, but I can’t help but love every single word of it!
Wishing You A Pain Free Day!
