Some inspiring song lyrics/quotes

I needed some inspiration today so I decided to look some inspiring song lyrics/quotes.

I'm not religious by any means but I do have some references thrown in here as well. (Just a warning) My list is pretty random but I do hope you enjoy the post.

"I'll never give up
Never give in
Never let a ray of doubt slip in
And if I fall
I'll never fail
I'll just get up and try again."
Win- Brian McKnight

"I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread my wings and fly away
I believe I can soar
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly"
I believe I can fly - R.Kelly

"It’s not that unusual
When everything is beautiful.

We’ll all float on"
Float On - Modest Mouse

"Now that we're here,
It's so far away
All the struggle we thought was in vain
All the mistakes,
One life contained
They all finally start to go away
Now that we're here its so far away
And I feel like I can face the day
I can forgive and I'm not ashamed to be the person that I am today"
So far away - Staind

"It has to start somewhere
It has to start some time
What better place than here
What better time than now?"

“So show a little inspiration/ show a little spark/ show the world a little act when you show it your heart/ we've got two lives--one we're given,/ and the other one we make/ and the world won't stop/ and actions speak louder/ listen to your heart.”
Performed by Mary-Chapin Carpenter

"And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?"
Fix You- Coldplay

"Well I won't back down, no I won't back down
You could stand me up at the gates of hell

And I'll keep this world from draggin' me down
Gonna stand my ground and I won't back down"
I Won’t Back Down - Tom Petty

"I see you've got your fist out
Say your piece and get out
Yes I get the gist of it, but
It's alright

Every silver lining's got a touch of grey

I will get by
I will get by
I will get by
I will survive"
Touch of Grey - The Grateful Dead.

An endless aching need.
I say love it is a flower,
And you its only seed... "

Oh no, something inside so strong
Oh oh oh oh oh something inside so strong."

"I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Living might mean taking chances
But they're worth taking
Lovin' might be a mistake
But it's worth making
Don't let some hell bent heart
Leave you bitter
When you come close to selling out
Give the heavens above
More than just a passing glance."

Still remains..."

Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten"

You're my wonderwall"

And don't you worry what their bitter hearts (bitter hearts)
Are gonna say."

"They say there's a heaven for those who will wait

"All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere
And their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow
And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
'Cos I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very, very
Mad World
Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday
Made to feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, no one knew me
Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson
Look right through me, look right through me."
Tears for Fears (or Gary Jules) - Mad World

Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one"
Imagine - John Lennon
