#AtoZChallenge 2020 – Dear Younger Me

D2020

I am loving participating in the #AtoZChallenge. So on my musical journey through the alphabet, I am sharing music that is in my extensive Apple Music collection.
Today I share Mercy Me’s Dear Younger Me! If I wrote a letter to the younger me, I would definitely  tell me to know that he was just fine the way he is. I would tell him to stay away from alcohol and drugs because ultimately they will cause him to have a lifelong chronic illness HIV/AIDS due to foolish things done while drunk. I would tell him that his mid forties to mid fifties were going to be a roller coaster but that he will come out on top – because he is a survivor!!
That’s what’s in My Rattled Cage, thanks for stopping by!!

Lyrics
Dear younger me
Where do I start
If I could tell you everything that I have learned so far
Then you could be
One step ahead
Of all the painful memories still running thru my head
I wonder how much different things would be
Dear younger me,
Dear younger me
I cannot decide
Do I give some speech about how to get the most out of your life
Or do I go deep
And try to change
The choices that you’ll make cuz they’re choices that made me
Even though I love this crazy life
Sometimes I wish it was a smoother ride
Dear younger me, dear younger me
If I knew then what I know now
Condemnation would’ve had no power
My joy my pain would’ve never been my worth
If I knew then what I know now
Would’ve not been hard to figure out
What I would’ve changed if I had heard
Dear younger me
It’s not your fault
You were never meant to carry this beyond the cross
Dear younger me
You are holy
You are righteous
You are one of the redeemed
Set apart a brand new heart
You are free indeed
Every mountain every valley
Thru each heartache you will see
Every moment brings you closer
To who you were meant to be
Dear younger me, dear younger me
You are holy
You are righteous
You are one of the redeemed
Set apart a brand new heart
You are free indeed
You are holy
You are righteous
You are one of the redeemed
Set apart a brand new heart
You are free indeed
You are holy
You are righteous
You are one of the redeemed
Set apart a brand new heart
You are free indeed
