Sometimes Kelly Clarkson speaks directly to/about me… This song is the perfect example of that.
You know, I read my sister’s blog just the other day (she’s not scarily private like I am), and she had said almost the exact same thing about this very song. I’m not posting this because she did…I’m posting this for me… Kelly Clarkson’s music has always moved me. And I don’t mean to sound like just another person who’s a fan just for the sake of being a fan. Anyway, whatever.
I’m strong, but I break.
I’m stubborn, and I make plenty of mistakes.
Yeah, I’m hard
And life with me is never easy to figure out.
To love, I’m jaded but oh so lovely.
All you have to do is hold me
And you’ll know, and you’ll see just how sweet it can be
If you’ll trust me, love me, let me…maybe
Some day when we’re at the same place,
When we’re on the same road,
When it’s okay to hold my hand without feeling lost
Without all the excuses –
When it’s just because you love me, you let me, you need me
Then maybe.
All you have to do is hold me
And you’ll know, and you’ll see just how sweet it can be
If you’ll trust me, love me, let me…maybe
I’m confusing as hell
I’m north and south.
And I’ll probably never have it all figured out,
But what I know is I wasn’t meant to walk this world
Without you.
And I promise I’ll try
Yeah, I’m gonna try to give you every little part of me,
Every single detail you missed with your eyes.
Then maybe
Maybe, yeah maybe


One day we’ll meet again and you’ll need me
You’ll see me completely –
Every little bit.
Oh yeah, maybe you’ll love me
You’ll love me then.
I don’t wanna be tough,
And i don’t wanna be proud.
I don’t need to be fixed
And I certainly don’t need to be found –
I’m not lost!
I need to be loved
I just need to be loved.
I just wanna be loved by you
And I won’t stop ’cause i believe
In maybe
Yeah, maybe,
I should know better than to touch the fire twice,
But i’m thinking maybe
Yeah, maybe you might
Maybe, love

How can this not move me completely and totally? And it’s not just the words, it’s the emotion in her voice. It’s the notes she hits. It’s the accompanying background music. I’m almost tempted to write all the lyrics of all her songs here… 🙂
