Jenny, Christina, Depression, & Hope

From Mischief’s blog contest, years ago! One of my favorite Jenny songs, starring depression and Christina Ricci.

(Lyrics start at :25!)

Sometimes in the morning I am petrified and can’t move

Photobucket

Awake but cannot open my eyes

Photobucket

And the weight is crushing down on my lungs, I know I can’t breathe

Photobucket

And hope someone will save me this time

Photobucket

And your mother’s still calling you insane and high

Photobucket

Swearing it’s different this time

Photobucket

And you tell her to give in to the demons that possess her

Photobucket

That God never blessed her insides

Photobucket

Then you hang up the phone and feel badly for upsetting things

Photobucket

And crawl back into bed to dream of a time

Photobucket

When your heart was open wide and you loved things just because

Photobucket

Like the sick and the dying

Photobucket

And sometimes when you’re on, you’re really fucking on

Photobucket

And your friends they sing along and they love you

Photobucket

But the lows are so extreme that the good seems fucking cheap

Photobucket

And it teases you for weeks in its absence

Photobucket

But you’ll fight and you’ll make it through

Photobucket

You’ll fake it if you have to

Photobucket

And you’ll show up for work with a smile

Photobucket

You’ll be be better, and you’ll be smarter

Photobucket

And more grown up and a better daughter

PhotobucketOr son and a real good friend

Photobucket

You’ll be awake, you’ll be alert

Photobucket

You’ll be positive though it hurts

Photobucket

And you’ll laugh and embrace all your friends

Photobucket

You’ll be a real good listener

Photobucket

You’ll be honest, you’ll be brave

Photobucket

You’ll be handsome, you’ll be beautiful

PhotobucketPhotobucket
Photobucket

You’ll be happy

Photobucket

Your ship may be coming in

You’re weak but not giving in

Photobucket

To the cries and the wails of the valley below

Photobucket

Your ship may be coming in

You’re weak but not giving in

Photobucket

And you’ll fight it, you’ll go out fighting all of them…

Photobucket
