about

Accepting people as they are. That's what this song has always been about. The good with the bad. I'm not saying I can always do that because I can't but, we have a better understanding of what it means to be human when we try. This is the first version I recorded of this song. I recorded it in Jake Owen's studio in Austin back in 2011 or 2012...I think. It was a demo we released to those who supported our first project together. It's in a different key than I sing it in now and I included an old video of me singing it too. Short short short hair. I still have that necklace though.

lyrics

I think you’re good. I think you’re perfect
I like the way you play your part just as you are
I think you’re beautiful with all of your sadness
When I hear your words that hardly get heard, I take them to heart

I wouldn’t write a song about my life to change who you are
I wouldn’t write a song about you now to tear you apart
But now you know open means broken

I think you're right and even your madness
Shines a light from deep inside that I need to see
I know you’re innocent but I know you’re dirty
There’s nothing you can’t be with me that you need to be

I wouldn’t write a song about my life to change who you are
I wouldn’t write a song about you now to tear you apart
But now you know open means already broken

Oh, now, don’t go into hiding. Oh no, don’t you leave this world
Oh, we’re lost but we’re still finding everything we wished we could
we still could

‘cause I think you’re good. I think you’re perfect
I like the way you play, you play your part
I’ll let you be whatever you’ll be whoever you are
I’ll let you be whatever you’ll be whoever you are

Laura Marie San Antonio, Texas

Now the reason we're here
Every man, every woman
Is to help each other
Stand by each other
When love walks in the room
Everybody stand up
Oh it's good, good good
Say I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you - The Pretenders

At some point in my life, I heard this song and decided (before I knew I decided) that my life purpose was to send a "message of love". Be <3
