The song for this week’s Tunes For Tuesday post is one close to my heart on so many levels.
The song is “Just The Way You Are” by Bruno Mars.
The song brings me to a difficult place in my past every time I hear it. I think of sitting in the passenger seat of my friend’s vehicle at a time when I didn’t think I could get any lower.
My friend played me this song from a CD as we sat together, just the two of us, in her truck. She said she thought of me the first time she heard the song.
To say I felt low that day, that week, that series of months that turned to a year, is an understatement. She played me the song and had me listen to the words. I cried. She hugged me and said she would support me, no matter how bad things got.
As I listen to the music today, again I feel transported back to that day, back to that truck.
I had never heard the song before that particular day.
Do you have a song that is special to you because it transports you back to moment in time?
This is christyb, I am glad Bruno Mars recorded this song.
