What I’m listening to

Nicole+C+Mullen

 Here are the lyrics:

“Homemade”

Riding the city bus on the way to school
Me and my two sisters and all the ridicule
The older girls on the back of the bus Would laugh and call us names
They’d talk about our hair, our clothes And call us homemade
See the “not so good ole days” Can make you weak or make you brave
I’ve never been the most beautiful
No I ain’t never been the most popular
But it’s amazing what love can do It’s amazing what a little love can do
Every thought and action is like a boomerang
What goes around will come back baby
So careful what you say
And the little ugly ducklings are swans that got away Cause Cinderella stories, they still happen everyday
Where the “not so good ole days” Could make you weak or brave
I’ve never been the most beautiful
Don’t care I’ve never been the most popular
Still it’s amazing what love can do It’s amazing what a little love can do
I bumped into a stranger just the other day
She said “Can you spare a dollar sista? “
“My man he ain’t got paid”
So I gave her what I had, then I recognized her face
She was the leader of the girls who used to call us homemade
Back when the “not so good ole days” Could make you weak or brave
I’ve never been the most beautiful I ain’t never been the most popular
But it’s amazing what love will do
Ain’t it amazing what Homemade love will do
-Nicole C. Mullen
Ok, this is a REAL confessional moment. I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Nicole C. Mullen. I tried to sing like her and everything! I’ve always been attracted to not the hit singles but the other tracks I thought should’ve been the single instead. LOL. This song is typical 12 year old me. It took me years to really admit to myself “Gessh, I don’t have it all together” And the fake-it-till-you-make-it-mentality won’t always work. Life is SO much easier, if you find out who you are in Christ from the jump. But I thank God, He decided to help me out. What you see on the outside is not always what’s on the inside. God is the repairer of the breach, regardless of how damaged the breach is (my God that was a tweet RIGHT there LOL)
