Music Monday: Kelly Clarkson - "Breaking Your Own Heart"

I think Kelly Clarkson will always be my favorite of the "American Idol" winners. Maybe it's because she was first.  I don't know.  I love me some Carrie Underwood too, but Kelly has a little edge.  I would love to see her live, and I am going to try and make it happen someday.

This song struck me over the weekend and hit very close to home.  Let me just say this -- don't go looking for answers you're not ready for and don't create situations you're not completely ready to handle. 



Lyrics:
Shaking your head like it's all wrong
Before you're here, you're already gone
And even with the light all around you
You're all alone in the dark

You're breaking your own heart
Taking it too far down a lonely road
You say you just love
But when it's close enough, you just let it go
The very thing you've been the most afraid of
You've been doing it from the start
Breaking your own heart

Too many tears, too many falls
It's easier here behind these walls
But you don't have to walk in the shadows
Where life is so hard

You're breaking your own heart
Taking it too far down a lonely road
You say you just love
But when it's close enough, you just let it go
The very thing you've been the most afraid of
You've been doing it from the start
Breaking your own heart

You're breaking your own heart 
It's not too late
I'm still right here
If only you'd let go of your fears 

You're breaking your heart
Taking your own heart down a lonely road
You say you just want love
But when it's close enough, you just let it go
The very thing you've been the most afraid of
You've been doing it from the start
Breaking your own heart
 
You're breaking your own heart
