Feeling Connected to Music: Bare Naked by Jennifer Love Hewitt

Feeling connected to music - Bare naked by Jennifer Love Hewitt

Hi Kind Friends! Have you ever had a song that felt like your anthem? Like it defined you at a certain point in your life so entirely? I’m feeling that a lot lately with the song Bare Naked from Jennifer Love Hewitt. Remember she used to sing? She has such a great voice.

I’ve been venturing into a lot of new topics and adventures lately and sharing a lot more of myself then I’m used to. It’s both a good and a bad feeling. I feel vulnerable but also so happy. It’s draining at times.

 

Above Jennifer is singing Bare Naked live, it’s my favorite version of the song because I feel like I can feel the emotions so much more in this version over the studio album. Follow along with the lyrics below.

Do you ever have that dream
where you’re walking naked down the street
and everyone just stares
Do you ever feel so deep
that you speak your mind
to put others straight to sleep
You wonder if anybody cares
Sometimes I think I’m the only one
whose day turned out unlike it had begun

And I feel bare naked
And I just can’t take it
I’m getting jaded
No I just can’t fake it anymore
‘Cuz I’m bare naked
And I know life’s what you make it
Wish I could float away
to some other day

You ever go downstairs to start your day
but your car’s not there
Yeah you know the joke’s on you
You ever try your luck with a pickup line
But you just sucked
You tell yourself it wasn’t you
And I know it’s hard to hold it inside
It’s days like these I run and hide

When I feel bare naked
And I just can’t take it
I’m getting jaded
No I just can’t fake it anymore
‘Cuz I’m bare naked
And I know life’s what you make it
Wish I could float away
to some other day

It’s all a state of mind
but I don’t mind trying to find a way
to keep my head above the mess I make
what the world creates
sometimes it feels so good to let it all fall
as the world fall
I may fall
we all may fall
and then the world comes tumbling
down down down down down 

I’m bare naked
And I just can’t take it
I’m getting jaded
No I just can’t fake it anymore
‘Cuz I’m bare naked
And I know life’s what you make it
Wish I could float away
to some other day 

When I feel .. feel (bare naked) .. feel
When I feel ..
Yeah no no no ..

    Ahhhh that is such a good song! Lately I have been listening to a band called Boyce Avenue they do covers of hit songs and I just love it! I do not really connect to it, but I do enjoy it. As for a song I feel connected to lately… I would say John Mayers Why Georgia. The whole song is about whether or not he is living his life right, and with me deciding to go back to school and change my plans (plans I have had since I was like 7!!) I have been kind of like eeerrrrr is it right!? I feel it is, after talking to all of the right people and lots of prayer, but it is always nice to have music to connect with.
