Chances are, I've made it abundantly clear over the past three years that I really like song lyrics. About a month ago, I gave "advice" through lyrics, and for some unknown reason, on this Halloween morning, I started combining lyrics. Most of these lyrics are meant to inspire and I hope you enjoy this combination nearly as much as I had fun putting it together. This took me about two and a half hours to throw together, and was restarted about three different times. I'm considering making this a monthly thing, simply because its fun. Perhaps I can even start throwing themes into the mix just for fun. I think I do this because some lyrics just really stand out to me, and some even seem to go perfectly along with another. Plus, its just fun. Maybe this'll make someone feel a bit better, if they're having a rough day. All the songs are listed in order of use at the bottom of this post, by the way. Some songs were used in more than one place, because they seemed fitting.
Maybe I'm a dreamer, maybe I'm misunderstood. Maybe you're not seeing the side of me you should. Maybe I'm crazy, maybe I'm the only one. Maybe I'm just out of touch, maybe I've just had enough. And maybe its time to change and leave it all behind, I've never been one to walk alone. I've always been scared to try. So why does it feel so wrong to reach for something more? To wanna live a better life. What am I waiting for? 'Cause nothing stays the same -maybe it's time to change.
I can almost see it -that dream I'm dreaming. There's a voice inside my head saying, "You'll never reach it." Every step I'm takin', every move I make feels lost with no direction. My faith is shakin' but I, I gotta keep tryin'. Gotta keep my head held high.
There's always gonna be another mountain, I'm always gonna wanna make it move. Always gonna be an uphill battle, sometimes I'm gonna have to lose. Ain't about how fast I get there, ain't about what's waitin' on the other side. It's the climb.
Its funny how some distance makes everything seem small. And the fears that once controlled me can't get to me at all. Its time to see what I can do, to test the limits and break through. No right, no wrong, no rules for me. I'm free.
Its easy to feel like you're all alone. To feel like nobody knows the great that you are. The good that's inside you is trying so hard to break through. Maybe its your time to lift off and fly, you won't know if you never try. Fly - open up the part of you that wants to hide away. You can shine. Forget about the reasons why you can't in life, and start to try. 'Cause its your time, time to fly.
Pick yourself up off the ground. You're sure as hell too good to let them hold you down. Stand up and scream while the rest of the world won't make a sound. Steppin' up, spit the fire, I'll back it up. Count me in, I'll turn it out. I'm killing it, you're burning out. Never change, never break. I'm the real, you're the fake. I was great, you were fake -nothing personal.
They say you were created to do great things, but words only come to life when you believe. Stop blending in, start speaking out. Don't miss your opprotunity. Don't let anyone tell you that you're not strong enough. Don't give up. There's nothing wrong with just being yourself -that's more than enough. So come on, and make some noise. If we stand for nothing, we'll fall for anything, so stand up and scream while the rest of the world won't make a sound.
They say its never too late to stop being afraid, and there is no one else here, so why should I wait? And there's a map in my mind that sends me on my way. 'Cause life starts now. You've done all the things that could kill you somehow and you're so far down. But you will survive this somehow because life starts now.
All this pain -take this life and make it yours. All this hate -take your heart and let it love again. You will survive this somehow. You're not alone -you're with me. Don't let the world bring you down. There's always hope for the willing. Don't let the world bring you down. Its not over -you're not alone anymore. You're not alone, together we stand. I'll be by your side, you know I'll take your hand. I'll be by your side, you know I'll take your hand. When it gets cold, and it feels like the end. There's no place to go. You know I won't give in. No I won't give in. Keep holding on. 'Cause you know we'll make it through, we'll make it through.
When it falls apart, and you're feeling lost, all your hope is gone, don't forget to hold on.
I am not alone, not beaten down just yet. I am not afraid of the voices in my head. I am not afraid to keep on living, I am not afraid to walk this world alone.
All I want is a place to call my own, to mend the hearts of everyone who feels alone. You know to keep your hopes up high and your head down low.
So maybe tonight we'll start all over. Like its the first day of our lives. Right here an now, no second chances. Maybe we'll finally get it right. Tell my mother, tell my father I've done the best I can to make them realize this is my life. I hope they understand. I'm not angry, I'm just saying sometimes goodbye is a second chance.
Never give in, never back down. There's no giving up now. There's no going back when life's a loaded gun. Here's to the nights that'll change your whole life, here's to the times you go and give them hell. If you believe in something, it might as well be you. If you're going off at nothing hidden with the truth. 'Cause one day you'll wake up, and see in you a different kind of animal with nothing left to lose. One day you'll wake up. What else could I do? One day you'll wake up.
So go for it, run toward it -dive in head first. Live life with no regrets. Put your heart out there, you might be scared. You might get hurt, but it'll all work out in the end.
How many moments have passed you by? How many tears have you let dry? Over every dream that you let die. How many things have you kept inside? How many things have you never tried? What would you do if you were out of time? Well you better run. You better run as fast as you can. Because the world tries to stop you, stop you, stop you whenever it can. You better live like it’s the last day of your life.
That first step you take is the longest stride. Live every day like its your last chance to be heard and seen, because the good die young and the great change the course of history. Live every second, here and now -don't let go.

There you go 29 songs, all rolled into one very long, blog/ article. Whatever you want to call it is fine. Maybe it inspired someone out there to keep going. Everything those lyrics say are true, you can do this. Remind yourself of one thing over and over again, when things aren't going so well - "If I can get through this, I can get through anything."
