Sometimes I Have To Listen To This Song 5 Times In A Row

 

If anyone has read all of my stories they can tell that I can get into a pretty dark state. When I do there are a few songs that take me off of the ledge. Sometimes it takes a few listens, but they always help, even if slightly. The first is Life by Our Lady Peace. Now I only discovered Our Lady Peace about a year and a half ago. I fell in love with a song called Not Enough. They have numerous inspirational songs that really move me. On the top of that list is Life:



How many times have you been pushed around?

Was anybody there?

Does anybody care?

How many time have your friends let you down?

Was anybody there?

Did anybody stare?

How many time have your friends let you down?

Just open up your heart

Just open up your mind

How many times has your faith slipped away?

Well, is anybody safe?

Does anybody pray?

How many days have you just slept away?

Is everybody high?

Is everyone afraid?

How many times have you wished you were strong?

Have they ever seen your heart?

Have they ever seen your pain?



and then there is the chorus..

Oh, Life is waiting for you

It's all messed up, but we're alive

Oh, Life is waiting for you

It's all messed up, but we'll survive

I do find it all quite moving
