    We all have those times when we feel down and outicon_sad.gif When you get to this point, do you have any songs that you go to, lyrics that make you smile, laugh, or want to get up and share your joy with the world? What songs speak to you when you are in a slump?

    Share your lyrics here.

    Here are some of mine:

    "This is the first day of the rest of your life"
    --Matt Maher

    "To love another person is to see the face of God"
    -- From Les Miserables

    "No, this is how it works, you peer inside yourself, you take the things you like and try to love the things you took, and then you take that love you made, and stick it into someone else's heart pumping someone elses blood. And walking arm in arm, you hope it don't get harmed, but even if it does, you just do it all again."
    --Regina Spektor

    "It's going to confession, and telling all the sins you've tried. The priest is getting angry at the smile you cannot hide. It's those magic little moments, trying hard to understand, wondering if its luck or loving hands."
    --Christine Kane

    JJ Heller is a song that has stuck in my mind this week..

    He cries in the corner where nobody sees
    He’s the kid with the story no one would believe
    He prays every night, “Dear God won’t you please
    Could you send someone here who will love me?”

    Who will love me for me
    Not for what I have done or what I will become
    Who will love me for me
    ‘Cause nobody has shown me what love
    What love really means

    Her office is shrinking a little each day
    She’s the woman whose husband has run away
    She’ll go to the gym after working today
    Maybe if she was thinner
    Then he would’ve stayed
    And she says…

    Who will love me for me?
    Not for what I have done or what I will become
    Who will love me for me?
    ‘Cause nobody has shown me what love, what love really means

    He’s waiting to die as he sits all alone
    He’s a man in a cell who regrets what he’s done

    He utters a cry from the depths of his soul
    “Oh Lord, forgive me, I want to go home”

    Then he heard a voice somewhere deep inside
    And it said
    “I know you’ve murdered and I know you’ve lied
    I have watched you suffer all of your life
    And now that you’ll listen, I’ll tell you that I...”

    I will love you for you
    Not for what you have done or what you will become
    I will love you for you
    I will give you the love
    The love that you never knew

    All the people in your life who've come and gone
    They let you down, you know they hurt your pride
    Better put it all behind you; cause life goes on
    You keep carrin' that anger, it'll eat you up inside

    Heart of the Matter


    I'm Gonna Make A Change,
    For Once In My Life
    It's Gonna Feel Real Good,
    Gonna Make A Difference
    Gonna Make It Right

    Man In the Mirror

    He said "I was finally the husband,
    "That most the time I wasn’t.
    "An' I became a friend a friend would like to have.
    "And all of a sudden goin' fishin’,
    "Wasn’t such an imposition,
    "And I went three times that year I lost my Dad.
    "Well, I finally read the Good Book,
    "And I took a good long hard look,
    "At what I'd do if I could do it all again,

    Live Like You Were Dying

    I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
    You get your fill to eat
    But always keep that hunger
    May you never take one single breath for granted
    God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
    I hope you still feel small
    When you stand by the ocean
    Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
    Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance

    I Hope You Dance


    I am beautiful no matter what they say
    Words can't bring me down
    I am beautiful in every single way
    Yes, words can't bring me down, oh no
    So don't you bring me down today

    Beautiful


    And I know this song is so over played, but I still love the message behind it.


    Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
    Drifting throught the wind
    Wanting to start again

    Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
    Like a house of cards
    One blow from caving in

    Do you ever feel already buried deep
    Six feet under scream
    But no one seems to hear a thing

    Do you know that there's still a chance for you
    Cause there's a spark in you

    You just gotta ignite the light
    And let it shine
    Just own the night
    Like the Fourth of July


    Firework

    I invite you all to try something different.... something from the UK charts... where I do all my music shopping since the US charts are generally devoid of anything amazing. This song has made me cry tears of joy on the very worst of days.



    Elbow: "On a day like this"

    Drinking in the morning sun
    Blinking in the morning sun
    Shaking off the heavy one
    Heavy like a loaded gun

    What made me behave that way?
    Using words I never say
    I can only think it must be love
    Oh, anyway, it's looking like a beautiful day

    Someone tell me how I feel
    It's silly wrong but vivid right
    Oh, kiss me like the final meal
    Yeah, kiss me like we die tonight

    Cause holy cow, I love your eyes
    And only now I see the light
    Yeah, lying with me half-awake
    Oh, anyway, it's looking like a beautiful day

    When my face is chamois-creased
    If you think I'll wink, I did
    Laugh politely at repeats
    Yeah, kiss me when my lips are thin

    Cause holy cow, I love your eyes
    And only now I see you like
    Yeah, lying with me half-awake
    Stumbling over what to say
    Well, anyway, it's looking like a beautiful day

    So throw those curtains wide!
    One day like this a year'd see me right!

    In This Life (5:10)
    Israel Kamakawiwo'ole

    For all I've been blessed with in my life
    There was an emptiness in me
    I was imprisoned by the power of gold
    With one kind touch you set me free
    Let the world stop hurting
    Let the sun stop burning
    Let them tell me love's not worth going through
    If it all falls apart
    I will know deep in my heart
    The only dream that mattered had come true
    In this life I was loved by you

    For every mountain I have climbed
    Every raging river crossed
    You were the treasure that I longed to find
    Without your love I would be lost
    Let the world stop hurting
    Let the sun stop burning
    Let them tell me love's not worth going through
    If it all falls apart
    I will know deep in my heart
    The only dream that mattered had come true
    In this life I was loved by you
    I know that I won't live forever
    But forever I'll be loving you

    Let the world stop hurting
    Let the sun stop burning
    Let them tell me love's not worth going through
    If it all falls apart
    I will know deep in my heart
    The only dream that mattered had come true
    In this life I was loved by you
    In this life I was loved by you

    Boyzone Andrew Lloyd Webber (music)/Jim Steinman(lyrics)

    No matter what they tell us
    No matter what they do
    No matter what they teach us
    What we believe is true

    No matter what they call us
    However they attack
    No matter where they take us
    We'll find our own way back

    I can't deny what I believe
    I can't be what I'm not
    I know I'll love forever
    I know, no matter what

    If only tears were laughter
    If only night was day
    If only prayers were answered
    Then we would hear God say

    No matter what they tell you
    No matter what they do
    No matter what they teach you
    What you believe is true

    And I will keep you safe and strong
    And sheltered from the storm
    No matter where it's barren
    A dream is being born

    No matter who they follow
    No matter where they lead
    No matter how they judge us
    I'll be everyone you need

    No matter if the sun don't shine
    Or if the skies are blue
    No matter what the end is
    My life began with you

    I can't deny what I believe
    I can't be what I'm not
    I know, I know
    I know this love's forever
    That's all that matters now
    No matter what
