Every once in awhile,
a song comes along that knocks your socks off,
and you feel as though the writer was penning it from somewhere deep inside your soul.

I heard it for the first time on my way home from Indiana –
it could be my theme song.


Beautiful Disaster
by Jon McLaughlin

She loves her mama’s lemonade
And hates the sound that goodbye’s make
She prays one day she’ll find someone to need her

She swears that there’s no difference
Between the lies and compliments
It’s all the same if everybody leaves her

And every magazine tells her she’s not good enough
The pictures that she sees make her cry

She would change everything, everything,
just ask her
Caught in the in-between a beautiful disaster
She just needs someone to take her home

She’s given boys what they want
And tries to act nonchalant
Afraid they’ll see that she’s lost her direction

She never stays the same for long
Assuming that she’ll get it wrong
Perfect only in her imperfection

She’s not a drama queen
She doesn’t want to feel this way
Only 17 but tired

She would change everything, for happy ever after
Caught in the in-between a beautiful disaster
She just needs someone to take her home

She’s just the way she is but no one’s told her that’s okay

She would change everything, everything,
just ask her
Caught in the in-between a beautiful disaster

She would change everything, for happy ever after
Caught in the in-between a beautiful disaster
She just needs someone to take her home
She just needs someone to take her home

I honestly cannot believe… I just saw the name of the album… it’s
