The rest is still unwritten...!!!

Heard this song again today and thought it was perfect for art journaling. Just love the words. I,ve typed them out for you as well, because I feel they have more meaning when you see them written down.

"Unwritten"

I am unwritten,
can't read my mind,
I'm undefined
I'm just beginning,
the pen's in my hand,
ending unplanned
Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions

Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten

Oh, oh, oh
I break tradition,
sometimes my tries,
are outside the lines
We've been conditioned to not make mistakes,
but I can't live that way
Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions

Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten

Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions

Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten
The rest is still unwritten
The rest is still unwritten




The rest is still unwritten...!!!

Enjoy xx

I love that song, in fact the whole album it pretty good, shame she's only ever done 1 album then disappeared! Still it is very apt for art journalling or just life in general!

Wow Dy, I've just caught up on about 6 posts - don't know what to comment on, there's so much! I love the sketch you've done in your journal - I'm envious (in a good way!) I wish I could draw! Is this going to be a new era for you, sketching your own images! And your canvases too.... they look great already!
Love and Hugs x

Thank you for this song. I happened upon your blog through thekathrynwheel and enjoying it thoroughly. Love your outfits, especially your kindred love of boots and tights. Will visit often i hope after a trip i'm taking to S.America.
