Dang it, Fergie!

Fergie did it again. Another song that I would not have guessed that was sung by Fergie. If you haven’t heard, “Finally” on the radio then look it up on Itunes. I was really impressed with the song because of the operatic feel to it. It almost has the feel of “Time to Say Goodbye” which was made popular by Sarah Brightman and Andrea Bocelli. The technique that is required to sing chromatics is not for the light hearted. This is exceptional writing concerning overall composition and its lyrics. Although I received a scholarship for composition and performance in college I will not bore you with a compositional analysis. However, what I would like you to notice is the lyrics. I think that this story could be claimed by more than one or two of you brides.

The Story begins as a little girl dreams about her Cinderella future and all that it holds. As time goes on because of situations, personal mistakes, and her perceptions of what she should do she lost the dream. Like most people, when you feel like that you have lost a dream and there isn’t much hope for getting it back we will resort to decisions that are based on what is best for the moment rather than what will get us to what we truly want in life. In short, she wrote a book about the love that she would find and the future they would have together. While on her travels the book was lost and any thought of that life was lost too. A man finds that book and begins the story of her search for her book and she “finally” finds her story and her “destiny. ”

In relationships, we want someone to accept us for who we truly are. Who we are when we are happy, excited such that we make a fool of ourselves in public, when we are sad and despondent, or when we need a sympathetic and empathetic ear to listen to our silly thoughts and ideas. To love someone means that you treat them in a way that is best for them without concern for ourselves. It means to care for them in a way that will bring out their best. When Love is seen in this manner then we will not demean our mates or even abuse them emotionally. I think that is why the verse, “and finally my mate has met my soul” is so poignant. We entrust our deepest core of ourselves to another. As such, see have agreed to be stewards of their heart and soul. Love protects the heart, soul, and even the integrity of the relationship.

What is Love?

  1. Statement of Commitment
  2. Backed by Sacrificial Giving
  3. For the betterment of the one being loved

The Lyrics:

Ever since I was a baby girl I had a dream
Cinderella theme
Crazy as it seems
Always knew that deep inside that there would come that day
But I would have to wait
Make so many mistakes
I couldn’t comprehend
As I watched it unfold
This classic story told I left it in the cold
Walking through an open door that led me back to you
Each one unlocking more of the truth

I finally stopped tripping on my youth
I finally got lost inside of you
I finally know that I needed to grow
And finally my mate has met my soul

[chorus] Finally
Now my destiny can begin
Though we will have our differences
Something strange and new is happening
Finally
Now my life doesn’t seem so bad
It’s the best that I’ve ever had
Give my love to him finally

MMMMMMMM

I remember the beginning you already knew
I acted like a fool
Just trying to be cool
Fronting like it didn’t matter
I just ran away
And on another phase

Was lost in my own space
Found what its like to hurt selfishly
Scared to give of me
Afraid to just believe
I was in a jealous, insecure, pathetic place
Stumbled through the mess that I have made

Finally got out of my own way
I’ve Finally started living for today
I finally know that I needed to grow
And finally my mate has met my soul

[chorus] Finally
Now my destiny can begin
Though we will have a different set
Something strange and new is happening
Finally
Now my life doesn’t seem so bad
It’s the best that I’ve ever had
Gave my love to him Finally

MMMMMMMM

Finally, Finally

Finally
Now my destiny can begin
Though we will have our differences
Something beautiful is happening, happening
Finally
Now my life doesn’t seem so bad
It’s the best that I’ve ever had
Give my love to him finally

Ohhhhhhh, Finally, Finally, finally
