I AM...Chris Daughtry

Posted by Oyinlola Sobowale on Tuesday, February 03, 2015 in | 7 comments


I was going to put up my 2nd post in the woman; her body, soul and spirit series but this just turned out to be one of those days when I'm too lazy to skip Daughtry and play the next Tye Tribbett song or even Hillsong. Till date, Christopher Adam Daughtry (lead vocalist of the rock band) is my greatest weakness on planet earth, he just does to me what a man shouldn't to an innocent girl and so I've been hooked on "call your name" and "Tennessee line" with "Ghost of me". The lyrics are weighty; today I choose to sail,walk, work, run,sit, cook, sleep, write and do all else with Chris Daughtry...





I open my lungs, to breathe in forgiveness and love
Haunting me now reminds me of how I used to be
And on down the road, my troubles are sure to follow
Looking out the window, the hell if I know, where I will go
So I'll just keep on driving

On my way to L.A. looking into the rear view as the roads fade away
I've sworn off my past, first-to-last bad call that I ever made
Tell me how to make right every wrong turn that I've learned
So this can all end tonight
Tennessee line just changed my mind, well it's my heart I'll follow this time

Who would've known, that pride is so hard to swallow
As I rest on the shoulder of a road growing colder
With the trouble I own, should I just keep on driving?

On my way to L.A. looking into the rear view as the roads fade away
I've sworn off my past, first-to-last bad call that I ever made
Tell me how to make right every wrong turn that I've learned
So this can all end tonight
Tennessee line just changed my mind, well it's my heart I'll follow this time

I know I must be doing something right
Head the other way, back to where I started out
Ask myself if I can turn it all around tonight
And stop living with doubt

On my way to L.A. looking into the rear view as the roads fade away
I've sworn off my past, first-to-last bad call that I ever made
Tell me how to make right every wrong turn that I've learned
So this can all end tonight
Tennessee line just changed my mind, well it's my heart I'll follow this time

I'm gonna turn it all around tonight at the Tennessee line

***********************

You never said, you never said, you never said
That it would be this hard
Love is meant to be forever, now or never seems to discard
There's gotta be a better way for me to say
What's on my heart without leaving scars
So can you hear me when I call your name?

And when you fall apart
Am I the reason for your endless sorrow?
There's so much to be said 

and with a broken heart
Your walls can only go down but so low
Can you hear me when I call your name?

Complicated situations are the makings of all that's wrong
And I've been standing in the river of deliverance way too long
There's gotta be a better way for me to say
What's on my heart without leaving scars
So can you hear me when I call your name?
So, can you hear me when I call your name?

And when you fall apart
Am I the reason for your endless sorrow?
There's so much to be said 

and with a broken heart
Your walls can only go down but so low
Can you hear me when I call your name?

    1. Shola na, it's not such a bad addiction. Is it? You should give up the soul "girly" songs and listen to real, hard-core, soulful rocky songs. ;-)

    2. It's not that bad true, but there is soul in rock right? So rock songs are just a hardened version of soul! And when it comes to music....hmmm!

      Lol! Just pulling your legs love....I am a die-hard rock addict! Even more than you I think!

  3. Please recommend some soul rock singers for me. I love a couple of songs like this but R n B & hip hop have always been my favourite! I think it's about time I swerved a bit.
    Thanks.
