One Year On and "I Was Made For You"





Brandi Carlile - The Story

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I've been
And how I got to where I am
But these stories don't mean anything
When you've got no one to tell them to
It's true... I was made for you

I climbed across the mountain tops
Swam all across the ocean blue
I crossed all the lines and I broke all the rules
But baby I broke them all for you
Oh because even when I was flat broke
You made me feel like a million bucks
You do and I was made for you

You see the smile that's on my mouth
It's hiding the words that don't come out
And all of my friends who think that I'm blessed
They don't know my head is a mess
No, they don't know who I really am
And they don't know what I've been through like you do
And I was made for you.

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I've been
And how I got to where I am
But these stories don't mean anything
When you've got no one to tell them to
It's true...I was made for you

Oh yeah it's true... that I was made for you


Yes, I really was made for him. That's how it feels. A year to the day, I opened my hotel room door to the man who would change my life in ways I never even imagined. On November 3 last year, I started on a new journey, a journey to love and happiness of a sort I've never known in my entire life.

This man inspires me, motivates me, believes in me. This man loves me beyond any words he can find to express himself. This man is in my future and will always be there for me. And the amazing thing is, I feel exactly the same way about him.

We don't need the grand things in life. We celebrate each other and we cherish each other. Just the mere brush of his fingertips across the back of my hand makes me melt. His eyes are the most beautiful I've ever seen, his lips hold such passion. He enfolds my body into his and in those moments I feel the safest I've ever felt. We crave, desire and want each other. And not only in a passionate, intimate way, but in the simplest way of sitting drinking coffee together, of brushing our teeth together in the morning, of being close enough to each other to feel the love flowing between us.

For the past 365 days, I have loved all of this man with all of me. And he has loved all of me with all of himself. We balance each other, we complement each other, we are better individuals because of each other. We are going to grow old together, he and I.

Oh yeah it's true...that I was made for you.

That's wonderful Fiona.

It also gives me hope that we can all be as blessed as you have been, to find the one that was made for you.

and isn't amazing that out of the many billions of people there on on this little 3rd rock from the sun of ours you found each other. I am so happy for you both and all of those that will be touched by your love.
