Say What You Mean

UO It's Not You It's Me shirt2

UO It's Not You It's Me shirtUO men’s t-shirt. Kova & T Oxy leggings. Nasty Gal vintage fingerless gloves. Colin Stuart shoes. Necklace from a random store in Venice, CA

The truth will set you free.  This t-shirt made me laugh upon first glace, and so naturally, I got it.  To give credit where credit is due (and because I got bitched at), my younger sister by four minutes, Mel, pointed out that she saw this t-shirt first.  Hence, we both have it.

After watching last night’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy and hearing “First in Line” by Matthew Mayfield, I’ve become an instant fan of the Birmingham singer.  His voice is intoxicating and haunting.  The lyrics to “First In Line” are beautiful…

I’ll run my fingers through
your hair tonight
There’s no one else
I’m sure of this
I need you now
I’ll give you all of me
I’ll make you mine
If you’ll take me
and make me your first in line
I’ve made my home in your heart and your mind
you laid your hands on my chest and
you pointed home…
I’ve seen you
I’ve kissed you
in two hours,
I’ve missed you
I’ll take it
I’ll make it
I’ll give you all…
