Inspiring Songs

Through Pandora I have learned more about my music taste. I love music that is inspiring, has understandable (not drowned by the rythmn) lyrics, catchy melodies (who doesn't), real to life (not about romance or your lost dog...).

There are several songs that I love not only for their rhythm and tone but for the words. Superchic[k]'s song, "We Live", is one of those songs. Here is the chorus:

We live, we love, we forgive and never give up
Cuz the days we are given are gifts from above
And today we remember to live and to love
We live, we love, we forgive and never give up
Cuz the days we are given are gifts from above
And today we remember to live and to love

or the last verse:

Waking up to another dark morning
People are mourning
The weather in life outside is stormin
But what would it take for the clouds to break
For us to realize each day
Is a gift somehow, someway
And get our heads up out of this darkness
And spark this new mindset and start on with life cuz it ain't gone yet
And tragedy's a reminder to take off the blinders and wake up
(to live the life)
We're supposed to take up
(moving forward)
With all our heads up
Cuz life is worth living

This song takes and paints such a vivid picture of a trauma, and resolves it beautiful. I love encouragement like this.
