Witness to Your Life by Lori McKenna

I have a crazy obsession with reading Lori McKenna’s lyrics. She is one of my favorite writers and I’m always so impressed that she is a mother of five who found the time to follow her passion. I’ve listened to interviews where she says she wrote many of her songs thinking that no one would ever hear them, so she was completely free to express herself. I admire that greatly. There is such realism in her lyrics. I could go on and on, but I’m going to stop now.

You got that job and joined the Union
Fought every urge that told you to run
Stared down the barrel of an empty gun – and wondered a bit
Stopped listening to all your friends
They think this is where life begins and ends
No one reaches, no one transcends – they just learn to live with it

All you really need is someone to be here
Someone who never lets you disappear
And I will be that witness to your life
You should never have to be alone
Someone will always call you home
And I will be that witness to your life — Lori McKenna
