Matt’s new playlist

I recently incorporated one of my long-time favorites into a blog, The Gambler- Kenny Rogers. This came to me during my senior year in High School and it just stuck. So many of my friends over the last 30 years have had a bunch of fun with this classic.

In honor of my friend Doug Drenik who keeps me current with new hits, I wanted to update my followers with some new Matt Moran favorites. 

As I did my workout this morning and played this playlist, I knew I had to share it more broadly.

This list has been building since Thanksgiving Day when I heard Celine Dion– Imperfections, during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade.  The full lyrics are below. 

I hope you enjoy these as much as I have over the last 4 months.  If you have any you think I should add please share. 

I am Grateful for Music!

I try to give all of myself to you
But before I can get there
I’ve got parts of me I’m trying to lose

Yeah, I got my own imperfections
I got my own set of scars to hide
I got my own imperfections
I can’t hold your heart when I’m fixing mine

So give it up, give it up
I ain’t gonna save you
Give it up, give it up now
Give it up, give it up
I ain’t gonna save you
Give it up, give it up now

‘Cause I got my own imperfections
I got my own imperfections
I got my own imperfections
Yeah, I got my own, I got my own

Hold on
Not tryna put you on the shelf
But before I could love you
I need to learn to love myself

‘Cause I got my own imperfections
I got my own set of scars to hide
I got my own imperfections
I can’t hold your heart when I’m fixing mine

So give it up, give it up
I… 

So give it up, give it up
I ain’t gonna save you
Give it up, give it up now
Give it up, give it up
I ain’t gonna save you
Give it up, give it up now

‘Cause I got my own imperfections
I got my own imperfections
I got my own imperfections
Yeah, I got my own, I got my own

They’re part of me and you are, too
And I don’t really want to choose
Can you love them the way that I love you?
They make me who I am today
And they won’t ever go away
Can you love them the way that I love you?

‘Cause I got my own imperfections
I got my own imperfections
I got my own imperfections
Yeah, I got my own, I got my own (I got)

Before I can love you (before I can love you)
I need to learn to love myself (I got my own)
Before I can trust you (before I can trust you)
I need to learn to trust myself (I need, I need)
(Before I can love you)
(I got my)
(Before I can trust you)

Keep working at what I try to do every day:

  1. Find something you are Grateful for
  2. Be truly Present for those you are with 
  3. Ask yourself what you are feeding your mind, body and spirit?

Live inspired at God speed! SFT!

Hello My Name is Matt Moran. While on 12/12/2018 it was confirmed that my cancer was back, I have experienced the blessing of Cancer. I am so blessed to have found the joys this disease can bring. My goal is to share some of my experience so others can draw strength from what I have witnessed. May you be blessed as well.
