The lyrics part about “‘you don’t mean nothing all to me” – is about how I felt about myself. Much of the lyrics, has personal meaning for me.

It is my ongoing battle to care about myself, in the absence of anyone else, caring.

Lyrics – “Say It Right”

In the day
In the night
Say it right
Say it all
You either got it
Or you don’t
You either stand or you fall
.
When your will is broken
When it slips from your hand
When there’s no time for joking
There’s a hole in the plan
.
Oh you don’t mean nothing at all to me
No you don’t mean nothing at all to me
But you got what it takes to set me free
Oh you could mean everything to me
.
I can’t say that I’m not lost and at fault
I can’t say that I don’t love the light and the dark
I can’t say that I don’t know that I am alive
And all of what I feel I could show
You tonight you tonight
.
Oh you don’t mean nothing at all to me
No you don’t mean nothing at all to me
But you got what it takes to set me free
Oh you could mean everything to me
.
From my hands I could give you
Something that I made
From my mouth I could sing you another brick that I laid
From my body I could show you a place God knows
You should know the space is holy
Do you really want to go?

I am a survivor of complex and multiple trauma and abuse, who at the age of 40, began my healing journey. I am using my journey to recovery and healing, to help others, to help survivors feel less alone, validated, encouraged and to enable others to understand themselves more. Complex trauma, particularly from severe, prolonged childhood abuse, is profoundly life changing. Complex trauma produces complex adults. The journey to recovery is a painful, often lonely, emotional daily challenge and it is my aim to encourage others in their daily battle. ~ Lilly Hope Lucario

    • Yes, these lyrics are very emotive and personal for me and reflect so much of how I have felt in the past.
      They are meaningful lyrics, which is something I know many of us trauma/abuse survivors think about.
      Music therapy has become part of my processing and coping.
      I know for many of us music is an important part of our lives.
