SongLyricSunday theme 1-7-18 “Madness”

This theme touches me deeply. I have had so many clients in my 40 some years in private practice who are terribly damaged because the responsible adults in their lives when they were kids, told them they were “crazy”.

Their attempts at art or music were criticized.

Their young and innocent goals were diminished.

They had just imagined that abuse.

They were told often enough that they were crazy, they actually began to wonder…and that WILL drive you to MADNESS, not being able to trust your own intelligence, perceptions and intuition in your life.

(This post is dedicated to my compassionate friend in Kentucky. You know who you are and you are not CRAZY!)

Crazy by Gnarls Barkley (CeeLo Green and Danger Mouse)

Lyrics

I remember when
I remember, I remember when I lost my mind
There was something so pleasant about that place
Even your emotions have an echo in so much space

And when you’re out there, without care
Yeah I was out of touch
But it wasn’t because I didn’t know enough
I just knew too much

Does that make me crazy?
Does that make me crazy?
Does that make me crazy?
Possibly

And now that you are having the time of your life
Well think twice
That’s my only advice

Come on now, who do you
Who do you, who do you
Who do you think you are?
Ha ha ha, bless your soul
You really think you’re in control?
Well

I think you’re crazy
I think you’re crazy
I think you’re crazy
Just like me

My heroes had the heart
To lose their lives out on a limb
And all I remember, is thinking
I wanna be like them
Mm hmm ever since I was little
Ever since I was little it looked like fun
And it’s no coincidence I’ve come
And I can die when I’m done

Maybe I’m crazy
Maybe you’re crazy
Maybe we’re crazy
Probably ooh hmm

Thought a blog might help me develop better writing habits so I could finally finish my book, 16 years in the writing, but so far it's mostly photos and FUN!

  1. I’ve struggled with that in my life as well. For some reason, people look at you differently when you’ve been in the hospital for anything other then a “medical” diagnosis. I don’t think there’s anything quite as hurtful as someone telling you they think you’re crazy.

    I’ve heard this song, but I never paid attention to the lyrics before. They’re brilliant! Thank you so much for sharing and for what you do. Good therapists aren’t always easy to find. ❤
