I am, I am, I am free
I'm a fan of Debby Holiday and I really like her new "Key To Your Soul" video. The lyrics are pretty powerful too:
I was livin' a life I thought I had to live.
Paint by numbers, squeezed in a box, I just never fit.
I was putting on a front, but it was all for show.
Then I heard a voice say "Would it be so bad for the world to know?"
I am, I am, I am free.
Face your fears; unlock the key to your soul
Step to the beat that makes you feel whole
Honesty, that's how you to take control
Live like you mean it, that's the key to your soul
Now I found the strength to live outside the lines
drawn by somebody else's brush; I color myself just fine.
It took a little livin' to learn that loving me feels good.
And I never ever want to return to being misunderstood
I am, I am, I am free...
The world is changing, but I can recall a time when I felt like I was living the life I thought I had to live. What a complete and total waste of time to live someone else's life. Like Debby's song says: Live like you mean it, that's the key to your soul!
Bonus: One of the background dancers is my all time favorite Dallas drag queen, Cassie Nova! She makes me laugh every time we visit the Rose Room!
