I posted these lyrics near the beginning of my blog (post 2, I think - gah so long ago), but lately they've been spinning in my head again so it felt time for my first re-post.
what can I say? erykah badu just speaks to me...
time to save the world,where in the world is all the time
so many things I still don't know
so many times I've changed my mind
guess I was born to make mistakes
but I ain't scared to take the weight
so when I stumble off the path
I know my heart will guide me back
-Erykah Badu, Didn't Cha Know
