Johnny Cash, "Unchained"

I’ve learned that no mat­ter where you are in life, there’s a Johnny Cash song to go along with it.

Recently, I’ve caused trou­ble to peo­ple very close to me. Very close. And this song does jus­tice to how I feel. So, in def­er­ence and all respect to Cindy Holman’s music post­ing style, I’m post­ing “Unchained” by Johnny Cash so this per­son will know that I’m human and afraid and vul­ner­a­ble. And that I’m weak. Most of all, I’m hop­ing to over­come my chains.

Unchained, by Johnny Cash

I have been ungrate­ful,
I’ve been unwise.
Rest­less from the cra­dle,
Now I real­ize,
It’s so hard to see the rain­bow,
Through glasses dark as these.
Maybe I’ll be able,
From now on, on my knees.

Oh, I am weak.
Oh, I know I am vain.
Take this weight from me,
Let my spirit be unchained.

Old man swearin’ at the side­walk,
I’m over­come.
Seems that we’ve both for­got­ten,
For­got­ten to go home.
Have I seen an angel?
Oh, have I seen a ghost?
Where’s that rock of ages,
When I need it most?

Oh, I am weak.
Oh, I know I am vain.
Take this weight from me,
Let my spirit be unchained.

Unchained, by Johnny Cash

I have been ungrateful,
I’ve been unwise.
Restless from the cradle,
Now I realize,
It’s so hard to see the rainbow,
Through glasses dark as these.
Maybe I’ll be able,
From now on, on my knees.

Oh, I am weak.
Oh, I know I am vain.
Take this weight from me,
Let my spirit be unchained.

Old man swearin’ at the sidewalk,
I’m overcome.
Seems that we’ve both forgotten,
Forgotten to go home.
Have I seen an angel?
Oh, have I seen a ghost?
Where’s that rock of ages,
When I need it most?

Oh, I am weak.
Oh, I know I am vain.
Take this weight from me,
Let my spirit be unchained.
