The Story
Brandi Carlile Lyrics


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
And, 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
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 our 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
Oh, 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, well it's true, that I was made for you

A História - Brandi Carlile

Todas estas linhas que contornam o meu rosto
Contam a história de quem eu sou
Tantas histórias sobre onde eu estive
E como eu cheguei onde estou
Mas essas histórias não significam nada
Quando não se tem a quem contar
É verdade, eu fui feita para você

Eu escalei os topos das montanhas
Nadei através de todo o oceano azul
Atravessei todas as linhas e quebrei todas as regras
Mas querido, eu quebrei todas por você
Porque mesmo quando eu estava destroçada
Você me faz sentir como um milhão de dólares
Sim, você faz! E eu fui feita para você

Você vê o sorriso que está na minha boca
Está escondendo as palavras que teimam em não sair
E todos os nossos amigos que me acham abençoada
Eles não sabem que minha cabeça é uma confusão
Não, eles não sabem quem eu sou de verdade
E não sabem pelo que eu passei como você sabe
E eu fui feita para você

Todas estas linhas que contornam meu rosto
Contam a história de quem eu sou
Tantas histórias sobre onde eu estive
E como eu cheguei onde estou
Mas essas histórias não significam nada
Quando não se tem a quem contar
É verdade, eu fui feita para você
Oh sim, é verdade, eu fui feita para você

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
I was made for you
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

And 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
It's true that I was made for you

my best friend passed away a few weeks ago.. we met in the bar I had started working at when I moved to NorCal over 7 years ago - it was karaoke night and after she heard me sing, she bee-lined over to me and asked if I knew any Brandi Carlile to sing with her - I immediately said, “The Story” and we tore the roof down that night

..the rest is history 😏

we ended up going to see your show in Oakland later that year and it was one of the best times of my entire life - we sang so many of your songs together throughout the years, you have always been our fav

**if you remember the girl at Kate Wolf Festival with the “I FREAKIN’ ❤️ YOU!” sign several years ago, that was me 😆 I was standing with another one of my girlfriends who passed away named Bri, who also absolutely loved you

Brandi, you’ve been my crutch the past few weeks and I want to say thank you, so very much for your words and beautiful voice; if you ever have a show in Iowa.. I will soooo be there!

rest in peace, Em 😌

2:53 is one of the biggest audiogasms in history. I wait for this moment everytime I hear this version of the song. What a masterful break of the voice. Gives me goosebumps, you feel the raw emotion.

In the studio for days. Deep sea trawler fishermen. 18th century lumberjacks. Oil rig workers.

@casey17w Very familiar with breakup; it's a beautiful, magical moment when your pickups and amp reach that point.

casey17w

@Marc Anglin yeah that's called breakup in the guitar amp world. It's a magical pt for all instruments including vox.
