Demons

I have always felt that my life can be played out by the music I have listened to through out my entire life. Thats a lot of music! Well today I have been listening to music to pick out what I want to put on my mp3 player to take with to Mexico. When I listened to a song that I hadn’t heard yet. Its from Kenny Chesney‘s new album “Just Who I am – Poets & Pirates” its called “Demons”. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but after listening to it I realized that it is a song that describes my life. I truly understand the words of this amazing song. I know it sounds silly to say a song can describe someone’s life, but it really does. I fight with my “Demons” almost everyday. I feel them all the time, they are and will always be there for me. I don’t think that they will ever really go away. Some may hide in the far corners of my memory and others stay awake and taunt my every thought. I try hard to make them go away.

Life is full of hard times, and some where along that hard road there are good times that come along and make life worth living. Some of us just have to work a bit harder at finding the good road. Trust me, we all slip back and fall hard from time to time, but as long as we make it back and try to do the good things in life, all bad things can be forgiven.

Here are the lyrics to the song.

Demons

Sometimes they’re in a bottle,
Sometimes a pair of high-heel shoes,
Some come rolled in paper
Some have six strings and only play the blues
Once you’ve met the devil
There ain’t no way he’ll let you be
When I’m not chasing demons,
There’s demons chasing me

Skeletons in closets
Ghosts underneath the bed
They hide out in pictures
And words better left unsaid
They hang around like perfume
And haunt me like an ancient melody
When I’m not chasing demons,
There’s demons chasing me

There’s things that I can’t leave alone
‘Cause they won’t leave me alone
What I want ain’t what I need
Still I reach for the things I crave
Then try to run away
Am I afraid of being free
‘Cause when I’m not chasing demons
There’s demons chasing me

So roll one up and light it
Pick up my old guitar
I’m playing crossroads
Drinking whiskey from a mason jar
Heartache at my front door
Says she needs my company
When I’m not chasing demons
There’s demons chasing me

There’s things that I can’t leave alone
‘Cause they won’t leave me alone
What I want ain’t what I need
Still I reach for the things I crave
Then try to run away
Am I afraid of being free
‘Cause when I’m not chasing demons
There’s demons chasing me

When I’m not chasing demons
There’s demons chasing me

Demons chasing me
