Victoria’s Secret 2010 and Jewel’s message to the World

I quite often hear that people thank artists for special songs that gave them strength to hold on through very hard times and happenings that hurt their heart and soul. While watching the Victoria’s Secret 2010 fashion show – first time without Heidi Klum (yiha!) – a song appeared and just catched me immediately. Maybe it happened because it was country and every one knows how much I love this genre or maybe it was just because Jewel sang the perfect lyrics in a true and honest way and somehow it all did fit perfectly well to the fashion show.

For this post I did not choose to take the usual youtube link where you hear the song and see pictures of the artist – but a beautiful piece of Video from the Victoria’s Secret runway showing the theme Country Girls with stunningly beautiful angel Candice starting and talking about self-confidence and the feeling of being an angel in the beginning and kind of pushing the atmosphere and the feeling of the song.

[Album: Sweet & Wild (Deluxe Version)]

I’m driving around town
Kinda bored with the windows rolled down
See a girl on the bus stop bench
Dressed to draw attention

Hoping everyone will stare
If she don’t stand out she thinks she’ll disappear
Wish I could hold her, tell her, show her
What she wants is already there

A star is a star
It doesn’t have to try to shine
Water will fall
A bird just knows how to fly

You don’t have to tell a flower how to bloom
Or light how to fill up a room
You already are what you are
And what you are is beautiful

Heard a story the other day
Took place at the local VA
A father talking to his dying son
This was his conversation

“It’s not supposed to be like this
You can’t go first I can’t handle it”
The boy said “Dad now don’t you cry,
Remember when I was a child what you used to tell me when I’d ask why?”

(You’d say) Gravity is gravity
It doesn’t try to pull you down
Stone is stone
It can’t help but hold its ground

The wind just blows, though you can’t see
It’s everywhere like I’ll always be
You already are what you are
And what you are is strong enough

Look in the mirror
Now that’s another story to tell
I give love to others
But I give myself hell

I’d have to tell myself
“In every scene there’s a perfect plan”
Everything I hoped to be
I already am

A flower is a flower
It doesn’t have to try to bloom
And light is light
Just knows how to fill a room

And dark is dark
So the stars have a place to shine
The tide goes out
So it can come back another time

Goodbye makes Hello so sweet
And love is love so it can teach us
We already are what we are
And what we are is beautiful

And strong enough
And good enough
And bright enough

Enjoy the show and the song and just be fashionable with Victoria’s Secret – the ultimative heavenly and divine lingerie fashion show that beats them all! You are beautiful.
