Not sure if we did this one already :rolleyes: (Should keep the Poms happy at the very least :P )

When you walk through a storm

hold your head up high

And don't be afraid of the dark.

At the end of a storm is a golden sky

And the sweet silver song of a lark.

Walk on through the wind,

Walk on through the rain,

Tho' your dreams be tossed and blown.

Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart

And you'll never walk alone,

You'll never, ever walk alone.

Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart

And you'll never walk alone,

You'll never, ever walk alone.

Words And Music by Oscar Hammerstein II - Richard Rogers.

I Won't Look Back by Needtobreathe

Love, love isn’t always

Love, the way that we mean

Just like you are right now is all, all that I need

Let’s start over, don’t be afraid cause I won’t keep track

Let’s climb to the top

If you won’t look down, I won’t look back

Love, love isn’t always

Love, the kind that you hold

I will be here waiting if you, you can let go

Let’s start over, don’t be afraid ‘cause I won’t keep track

Let’s climb to the top

If you won’t look down, I won’t look back

Let’s start over, don’t be afraid ‘cause I won’t keep track

Let’s climb to the top

If you won’t look down, I won’t look back.

Take The Time

by

[ Dream Theater]

Just let me catch my breath...

I've heard the promises

I've seen the mistakes

I've had my fair share of tough

breaks

I need a new voice, a new law,

a new way

Take the time, reevaluate

It's time to pick up the pieces,

Go back to square one

I think it's time for a change

There is something that I feel

To be something that is real

I feel the heat within my mind

And craft new changes with

my eyes

Giving freely wandering

promises

A place with decisions I'll

fashion

I won't waste another breath

You can feel the waves coming on

(It's time to take the time)

Let them destroy you or carry

you on

(It's time to take the time)

You're fighting the weight of

the world

But no one can save you this

time

Close your eyes

You can find all you need in

your mind

The unbroken spirit

Obscured and disquiet

Finds clearness this trial

demands

And at the end of this day sighs

an anxious relief

For the fortune lies still in his

hands

If there's pensive fear, a

wasted year

A man must learn to cope

If his obsession's real,

Suppression that he feels must

turn to hope

Life is no more assuring than

love

(It's time to take the time)

There are no answers from

voices above

(It's time to take the time)

You're fighting the weight of

the world

And no one can save you this

time

Close your eyes

You can find all you need in

your mind

I close my eyes

And feel the water rise around

me

Drown the bead of time

Let my senses fall away

I can see much clearer now,

I'm blind

Find all you need in your mind

If you take the time

this song is what I use to cheer me up when I get really down it helped me through high school the most when kids where really mean to those of us that where different a good cry always brings the laughter later down the road let me tell you

Don't Close Your Eyes Lyrics

Whatcha doing out in the night time

Why'd ya' call me on the phone

Your mama can't solve your problems

When's daddy ever get home

So you did your little move and cried

In the middle of a suicide

Don't close your eyes

Don't close your eyes

Don't sing your last lullaby

There's no one there to hold you

No one hears your scream

You live life up and down

your nightmare's are your dreams

I know it's lonely when your hanging 'round

Don't ya' take it lying down - no, no

Hold on - Hold on tight

I'll make everything all right

Wake up - Don't go to sleep

I pray the lord your soul to keep

Don't close your eyes

Don't close your eyes

Don't sing your last lullaby

Don't close your eyes

Don't close your eyes

Don't sing your last lullaby

eeeek Bringing back the 80's power ballad with this one, though I thought Blow My Fuse was a decent album in it's day. :rolleyes:

My favorite song from my favorite band :D

Words and music by Brian May

Theres no time for us

Theres no place for us

What is this thing that builds our dreams yet slips away

From us

Who wants to live forever

Who wants to live forever....?

Theres no chance for us

Its all decided for us

This world has only one sweet moment set aside for us

Who wants to live forever

Who wants to live forever?

Who dares to love forever?

When love must die

But touch my tears with your lips

Touch my world with your fingertips

And we can have forever

And we can love forever

Forever is our today

Who wants to live forever

Who wants to live forever?

Forever is our today

This is one of my favorites... By Five for Fighting. It's a few years old...but it has special meaning to me...

Here's the video if you want to hear it...(Big fan of the song...not the video):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzOe2SrtLwM

100 Years

I'm 15 for a moment

Caught in between 10 and 20

And I'm just dreaming

Counting the ways to where you are

I'm 22 for a moment

She feels better than ever

And we're on fire

Making our way back from Mars

15 there's still time for you

Time to buy and time to lose

15, there's never a wish better than this

When you only got 100 years to live

I'm 33 for a moment

Still the man, but you see I'm a they

A kid on the way

A family on my mind

I'm 45 for a moment

The sea is high

And I'm heading into a crisis

Chasing the years of my life

15 there's still time for you

Time to buy, Time to lose yourself

Within a morning star

15 I'm all right with you

15, there's never a wish better than this

When you only got 100 years to live

Half time goes by

Suddenly you’re wise

Another blink of an eye

67 is gone

The sun is getting high

We're moving on...

I'm 99 for a moment

Dying for just another moment

And I'm just dreaming

Counting the ways to where you are

15 there's still time for you

22 I feel her too

33 you’re on your way

Every day's a new day...

15 there's still time for you

Time to buy and time to choose

Hey 15, there's never a wish better than this

When you only got 100 years to live

I forgot how much I loved that song :D

Great idea adding the Youtube link Lorrie it was great to read the words then listen to it

My last two can be found Here and Here.

Elvis also did the second song but I much prefer Gerry and the Pacemakers version :P

Good, good stuff. I hadn't thought of the 100yrs song. The theme goes right along with Pink Floyd's "Time," one of my all time favorites. :D

I love "Daydream." It's being used on some commercial now and it just makes you smile and wish that you were walking down some trail looking up at a beautiful waterfall.

Here's a video of a song I've always loved, but think about more now that I'm an amputee. It's "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother" sung by the Hollies, but written by my alltime favorite singer/songwriter Neil Diamond.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7HPqi5uVeo

The road is long

With many a winding turn

That leads us to who knows where

Who knows where

But I'm strong

Strong enough to carry him

He ain't heavy, he's my brother

So on we go

His welfare is of my concern

No burden is he to bear

We'll get there

For I know

He would not encumber me

He ain't heavy, he's my brother

If I'm laden at all

I'm laden with sadness

That everyone's heart

Isn't filled with the gladness

Of love for one another

It's a long, long road

From which there is no return

While we're on the way to there

Why not share

And the load

Doesn't weigh me down at all

He ain't heavy he's my brother

He's my brother

He ain't heavy, he's my brother

Neal, that song is way up in my all time top ten.

Shane, heard this song on the radio this morning and it made me think of you.

Born To Be wild

Get your motor runnin'

Head out on the highway

Lookin' for adventure

And whatever comes our way

Yeah Darlin' go and make it happen

Take the world in a love embrace

Fire all of your guns at once

And explode into space

I like smoke and lightning

Heavy metal thunder

Racin' with the wind

And the feelin' that I'm under

Yeah Darlin' go and make it happen

Take the world in a love embrace

Fire all of your guns at once

And explode into space

Like a true nature's child

We were born, born to be wild

We can climb so high

I never wanna die

Born to be wild

Born to be wild

I haven't made my mind up about this one, does the song make the video or does the video make the song.

I agree with Cat...but I can't let this post go by without letting those who don't know the story of this amazing father and son team learn about them...I know this particular post is about inspiring lyrics...but in this case the story is unbelivably more inspiring than any lyric I know! Here's just one news clip about them...(again, someone edited some music and video after the newsclip).

Another of my favorites...An old Beatles Tune

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FNM4hgjxLSU

In My Life lyrics

There are places I'll remember

All my life though some have changed

Some forever not for better

Some have gone and some remain

All these places have their moments

With lovers and friends I still can recall

Some are dead and some are living

In my life I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers

There is no one compares with you

And these memories lose their meaning

When I think of love as something new

Though I know I'll never lose affection

For people and things that went before

I know I'll often stop and think about them

In my life I love you more

Though I know I'll never lose affection

For people and things that went before

I know I'll often stop and think about them

In my life I love you more

In my life I love you more

Lorri there's nothing "old" about The Beatles ;) Their music is as fresh today as it was when it first arrived. Even my kids adore them.

My fav Beatles.... (It's kinda all one song :D )

Golden Slumbers

(John Lennon, Paul McCartney)

Lead Vocal: Paul McCartney

Once there was a way to get back homeward

Once there was a way to get back home

Sleep pretty darling do not cry

And I will sing a lullabye

Golden slumbers fill your eyes

Smiles awake you when you rise

Sleep pretty darling do not cry

And I will sing a lullabye

Once there was a way to get back homeward

Once there was a way to get back home

Sleep pretty darling do not cry

And I will sing a lullabye

Carry That Weight

(John Lennon, Paul McCartney)

Lead Vocal: Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr

Boy, you're going to carry that weight,

Carry that weight a long time

Boy, you're going to carry that weight

Carry that weight a long time

I never give you my pillow

I only send you my invitations

And in the middle of the celebrations

I break down

Boy, you're going to carry that weight

Carry that weight a long time

Boy, you're going to carry that weight

Carry that weight a long time

The End

(John Lennon, Paul McCartney)

Lead Vocal: Paul McCartney

Oh yeah, all right

Are you going to be in my dreams

Tonight?

And in the end

The love you take

Is equal to the love

You make

Hands.....words and music Jewel

If I could tell the world just one thing

It would be that we're all OK

And not to worry 'cause worry is wasteful

And useless in times like these

I won't be made useless

I won't be idle with despair

I will gather myself around my faith

For light does the darkness most fear

My hands are small, I know

But they're not yours, they are my own

But they're not yours, they are my own

And I am never broken

Poverty stole your golden shoes

It didn't steal your laughter

And heartache came to visit me

But I knew it wasn't ever after

We'll fight, not out of spite

For someone must stand up for what's right

'Cause where there's a man who has no voice

There ours shall go singing

My hands are small I know

But they're not yours, they are my own

But they're not yours, they are my own

I am never broken

In the end only kindness matters

In the end only kindness matters

I will get down on my knees, and I will pray

I will get down on my knees, and I will pray

I will get down on my knees, and I will pray

My hands are small I know

But they're not yours, they are my own

But they're not yours, they are my own

And I am never broken

My hands are small I know

But they're not yours, they are my own

But they're not yours, they are my own

And I am never broken

We are never broken

We are God's eyes

God's hands

God's mind

We are God's eyes

God's hands

God's heart

We are God's eyes

God's hands

God's eyes

We are God's hands

We are God's hands

Well, I normally just admire what the rest of you guys post here... but today I have something to add!

I recently went to see Emmylou Harris in concert. I'm normally more of a jazz and blues person, but she is so special that she transcends any genré. Here are two of the numbers from that concert that touched me... for different reasons, in different ways:

Sweet Old World

Emmylou Harris

See what you lost when you left this world, this sweet old world

See what you lost when you left this world, this sweet old world

The breath from your own lips, the touch of fingertips

A sweet and tender kiss

The sound of a midnight train, wearing someone's ring

Someone calling your name

Somebody so warm cradled in your arm

Didn't you think you were worth anything

See what you lost when you left this world, this sweet old world

See what you lost when you left this world, this sweet old world

Millions of us in love, promises made good

Your own flesh and blood

Looking for some truth, dancing with no shoes

The beat, the rhythm, the blues

The pounding of your heart's drum together with another one

Didn't you think anyone loved you

See what you lost when you left this world, this sweet old world

See what you lost when you left this world, this sweet old world

Love and Happiness

Emmylou Harris

Here's a wishing well

Here's a penny for

Any thought it is

That makes you smile

Every diamond dream

Everything that brings

Love and happiness

To your life

Here's a rabbit's food

Take it when you go

So you'll always know

You're safe from harm

Wear your ruby shoes

When you're far away

So you'll always stay

Home in your heart

You will always have a lucky star

That shines because of what you are

Even in the deepest dark

Because your aim is true

And if i could only have one wish

Darling, then i would be this

Love and happiness for you

Here's a spinning wheel

Use it once you've learned

There's a way to turn

The straw to gold

Here's a rosary

Count on every bead

With a prayer to keep

The hope you hold

You will always have a lucky star

That shines because of what you are

Even in the deepest dark

Because your aim is true

And if I could only have one wish

Darling, then it would be this

Love and happiness fot you

And if I could only have one wish

Darling, then it would be this

Love and happiness for you
