2am Dedication

Filed under: Uncategorized

As of 2am New Year’s Day it’s been seven years since I lost my dad and I found myself.  This ones for you Daddy…

Breathe 2am 

There’s a light at each end of this tunnel, you shout
But you’re just as far in as you’ll ever be out
These mistakes you’ve made, you’ll just make them again
If you only try turning around.

2 AM and I’m still awake, writing a song
If I get it all down on paper, its no longer
inside of me, threatening the life it belongs to
And i feel like I’m naked in front of the crowd
Cause these words are my diary, screaming out loud
And I know that you’ll use them, however you want to

Cause you can’t jump the track, we’re like cars on a cable,
And life’s like an hourglass, glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button now
Sing it if you understand.
and breathe, just breathe
woah breathe, just breathe,
oh breathe, just breathe.

Anna Nalick

Love and miss you…always and forever.

  1. Love & hugs to you, always, my sweet friend.

  2. Kim, it's a little after 2pm, & I just read this. Then I had to read it again, listening to the song. You & Anna Nalick have inspired my first tears of the year. A beautiful statement to your dad, & the song is so fitting. And the dedication… it's just perfect…
    Much love & happiness to you in this new year…

  3. Love you guys. <3

  4. I'm crying into my sautéed chicken. Just beautiful Kim:). Love, Julianne xoxoxox
