Music Inspiration: Nobody’s Perfect


Music is a language of the heart, binding together people of all colors and places. It is one pervasive force which can inspire you to climb any mountain or dowse all the flames in you with the drop of a hat.

Bringing together the varied flavors of music, this post is an attempt to inspire you and light a spark hidden in forgotten creases of your heart.

The Music Inspiration for today is from an enlightening song sung by Hannah Montana, “Nobody’s Perfect”, reminding us that no human folly can be bigger than a peaceful state of mind and boatloads of confidence. Some excerpts from the lyrics:

Sometimes I’m in a jam
I’ve gotta make a plan
It might be crazy
I do it anyway
No way to know for sure
I’ll figure out a cure
I’m patchin’ up the holes
But then it overflows
If I’m not doin’ too well
Why be so hard on my self?

Don’t we all have really bad days when life seems to move slower than sloths? What do we do then- procrastinate or plan? When our mind is anxious, it is anything but natural that the latter seems the last on our list! But just like those quick-witted penguins in Madagascar 3, we too can be real badass and think our way out even from tough situations.


Sometimes I work a scheme
But then it flips on me
Doesn’t turn out how I planned
get stuck in quick sand
No problem, can be solved
Once I get involved
I try to be delicate
Then crash right into it
My intentions are good
Sometimes just misunderstood

Our plans might not work the way we expect them to. That’s the stickiest part about the plans. They keep us in anticipation, and we may end up exerting all our efforts into making them work yet when we are rewarded with only disappointments and crashed hopes, life seems real harsh. However big the adversity though, as long as our spirit is intact nothing can really break us. Even if people around start turning up against us, we still have our own company to keep us sane!

Nobody’s Perfect!
I gotta work it!
Again and again ’til I get it right
Nobody’s Perfect!
You live and you learn it!
And if I mess it up sometimes…
Nobody’s perfect

Edison discovered light bulb only after 100 attempts. Einstein had more number of failures than most of us can even muster in all our lifetimes. Even a perky rockstar like Hannah Montana had so many obstacles when trying to live a normal life, juggling friends and fame.

Yet they went on. Smilingly or not. They kept digging on till the end of the tunnel till they finally reached the gold. No matter how much time it took, or how much toils wasted. A fabricated expectation was never their end goal, instead it was the journey of perseverance and grit which mattered to them. Whenever you feel like hope is slipping by you, just observe the ants. They carry 10 times their weight, and keep toiling all their lives. Just watch them climbing walls, how they get up despite falling down so many times. It will keep you on your toes lest you should lose your balance!


I know in time I’ll find a way

Have that faith, in your abilities and in Divine. You will find the solution to your problem because no problem was created without one, just like no lock was ever made without a key. So either find your key or make one. But don’t look back.


I might mix things up
But I always get it right in the end

Nothing stays. This too shall pass. Let that be your guiding force. No matter how much you mess things up, it’s never too late for setting things right or even a new start.
