Then You've Seen Me

All Rights Reserved

 

Last night the Golden Globes was on TV and I love the movies and love the Golden Globe awards for many reasons. When I heard songs up for best song and Bruce Springsteen's song....The Wrestler...came on I was so taken by the song and said "Hands down this is the best song." I was not aware of the movie The Wrestler with Mickey Rourke and thought Sean Penn would be in the top running.

It's what I love about the Globes....The underdogs....The movies not getting all the hype many times come to our attention.

 

I had no photo that would go with this song that won best song or the fact Mickey Rourke took Best Actor award. My best idea was to grab my 12 string guitar and an aged bottle of wine with a horse on it.

The reflections from the guitar can reflect the words..."Then you've seen me. We've all been through hard times and I think this is a movie many can relate with. There is a chance to heal and repair and I love movies that have growth of characters.

Witness the resurrection of MIckey Rourke....It was so exciting to see an him come back .

The song and parts of the movie are below with words of the song.

Congrats to Bruce Springsteen and Mickey Rourke!

 

The Wrestler

Have you ever seen a one trick pony in the field so happy and free?

If you've ever seen a one trick pony then you've seen me

Have you ever seen a one-legged dog making his way down the street?

If you've ever seen a one-legged dog then you've seen me

 

Then you've seen me, I come and stand at every door

Then you've seen me, I always leave with less than I had before

Then you've seen me, bet I can make you smile when the blood, it hits the floor

Tell me, friend, can you ask for anything more?

Tell me can you ask for anything more?

 

Have you ever seen a scarecrow filled with nothing but dust and wheat?

If you've ever seen that scarecrow then you've seen me

Have you ever seen a one-armed man punching at nothing but the breeze?

If you've ever seen a one-armed man then you've seen me

 

Then you've seen me, I come and stand at every door

Then you've seen me, I always leave with less than I had before

Then you've seen me, bet I can make you smile when the blood, it hits the floor

Tell me, friend, can you ask for anything more?

Tell me can you ask for anything more?

The Wrestler

These things that have comforted me, I drive away

This place that is my home I cannot stay

My only faith's in the broken bones and bruises I display

 

Have you ever seen a one-legged man trying to dance his way free?

If you've ever seen a one-legged man then you've seen me
