Friday, January 16, 2009 ain't always beautiful.....

This is probably my favorite song by Gary Allan and it definitely rates in my top 5 songs ever by anyone.

I absolutely love listening to this man sing. He is one of the most underrated artists out there.

His journey has not been an easy one. He refuses to give in to what others want. He sticks to what he knows and what he loves.

He lost his wife to a tragic accident and managed to find incredible lyrics to wonderul songs through this. All part of his healing process.

This song is probably my favorite because it pretty much says that no matter what we go through in life, the joys, the pains.... in the end, isn't it all worth it?

I also want to dedicate this to my friend, Becky, because I know that she is going through a hard time right now and I wish there was so much more that I could do for her. Just want her to know that no matter what, in the end, it's going to be okay.

Life ain't always beautiful
Sometimes it's just plain hard
Life can knock you down, it can break your heart

Life ain't always beautiful
You think you're on your way
And it's just a dead end road at the end of the day

But the struggle makes you stronger
And the changes make you wise
And happiness has it's own way of takin' it sweet time

No,life aint always beautiful
Tears will fall sometimes
Life aint always beautiful
But it's a beautiful ride

Life aint always beautiful
Some days I miss your smile
I get tired of walkin' all these lonely miles

And I wish for just one minute
I could see your pretty face
Guess I can dream, but life dont work that way

But the struggles makes me stronger
And the changes make me wise
And happiness has it's own way of takin' its sweet time

No, life aint always beautiful
But I know I'll be fine
Hey, life aint always beautiful
But its a beautiful ride
What a beautiful ride
