Sara Bareilles updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@sarabareilles) on Wednesday (April 15), where the singer songwriter talked about her song ‘Many The Miles’. Bareilles writes:
I’m on a flight to Nashville right now and I’m sitting behind a man with a rather pungent odor. I’m not complaining, but I am offering my earnest support towards people showering. On a regular basis. No, seriously.
And I’m listening to my iPod and oddly enough, Many the Miles just came on. I always skip my own songs, but this time I’m going to listen.
So I wrote this song as a reminder to myself to keep going in search of love and truth and light and it remains to be and ideal I love to stay connected to.
I suck at it a lot of the time actually, to be honest. I get bitchy, and bored, and irritable, and uninspired and I spend a lot of energy on what i don’t like about myself. But at the end of a good day I can take solace in the fact that I am someone who truly wants to be peaceful. Who knows I have the capacity to be truly happy. Not every moment of everyday… but sometimes, and if I’m really committed… a lot of the time.
