Message to Myself
Melissa Etheridge

I'm sending out a message to myself
So that when I hear it on the radio
I will know that I am fine
I will know that I have love

I warned myself of a blackness in my chest
The razors in my heart would never rest
It's funny how you find just what you seek
Love is what you get, when love is what you speak

I'm sending out a message to myself
So that when I hear it on the radio
I will know that I am fine
I will know that I have love

I made every choice along the way
Each day I spent in hell, I chose to stay
It's funny how what you think can make you weak
Truth is what you get, when truth is what you speak

I'm sending out a message to myself
So that when I hear it on the radio
I will know that I am fine
I will know that I have love

So if you are listening
And I'm just passing through
You can take some for yourself
Because it works that way too

I will know that I am fine
I will know that I have love

I'm sending out a message to myself
So that when I hear it on the radio
I will know that I am fine
I will know that I have love

Up Close and Personal:

Melissa Etheridge    (29 May 1961)
ne Melissa Lou Etheridge

A "mixture of confessional lyrics, pop-based folk-rock, and raspy, Janis Joplin/Rod Stewart-esque vocals"1 makes for a truly outstanding international music star... Melissa Etheridge!

Melissa is an Academy Award-winning and two-time Grammy Award-winning American rock singer-songwriter, guitarist.

She started playing the guitar at age eight in Texas, turning out tunes that were more of the blues than her more current folk-pop style. Playing independently she eventually caught the eye of Bill Leopold (her current manager) and signed with Island Records.  Her first recording went gold (with the hit single "Bring Me Some Water") and she was quickly compared to the likes of Bruce Springsteen and John Mellencamp.

Melissa has released ten albums since signing her first major recording contract in 1987. Three of them have gone multi-platinum: Melissa Etheridge (1988), Yes I Am (1993) and Your Little Secret (1995). Two others went platinum and two more gold.

She has won numerous awards including: International Entertainer of the Year at the 20th Annual Juno Awards in 1990; Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance twice in her career, for the songs "Ain't It Heavy" in 1992, and" Come to My Window"
