~detail: Just A Story of A Kid

I had a new CD.  Fast.  Loud.  Energetic.  It was a mainstay in the player for weeks.  I was in the car singing along when I realized I had the lyrics wrong.  Though alone in my car, a flush of embarrassment came over me – didn’t last long.  Silly me.  Replay.  Listen closely.  Still makes sense, “It’s just a story of a king….”  What are they saying?  Replay.  “…who gave up his life for something better….”  What’s better than king?  Hmmm.  Replay.  “It’s just a story of a kid who gave up his life for something better than himself.”*  That made me smile.  Turn up the volume.  Replay.
