Life is the art of drawing without an eraser ~ John W. Gardner

Jessica Ellen Cornish aka Jessie J

It’s not about the money, money, money…… She sings.

I love the song “Price Tag”. When I first heard it, I thought it was Pink. She sounds so much like Pink but her voice is more crisp. Then I heard her singing “Who You Are” last week, I fell in love with her voice even more.

According to her, “Who You Are” is a song that she wrote, and to encourage people to be who they are, especially the teenagers. Indeed a very meaningful song. Sometimes we think too much to ourselves, we wanted to please others so much that we lost ourselves and we lie to ourselves so often that we forgot who we really are.

Don’t lose it all in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing
It’s okay not to be okay
Sometimes it’s hard to follow your heart
Tears don’t mean you’re losing
Everybody is bruising
Just to be true to who you are

Listen, to every word that she sings, and feel it. If you have been through something at some point in your life, listening to this song is just going to stir that memory up.

Somehow, I prefer the boombox version.
