When I was in high school I used to collect song lyrics in a notebook, sometimes the whole song, sometimes bits and pieces. Lately I have been hearing songs and lines that I remember having cared about. I think my all time favorite is from Carol King:

You've got to get up every morning
With a smile on your face,
And show the world all the love in your heart.
Then people are gonna treat you better,
You're gonna find, yes you will,
That you are beautiful as you feel.

Do you have a favorite?

Right know I can't think of any, but at 2:00 AM when I should be sleeping, they keep running though my mind! LOL But then only part of them and I lay awake trying to remember the rest of it! ;)

Amazing Grace is my all time favorite song. I also like Bridge Over Troubled Water.

Keith Urban - "I've forgiven myself for all the mistakes I've made" from a song about a new day coming.

I love music and have kept lists of song lyrics, titles and artists I love over the years. It amazes me how people can put so much meaning into a few short lines!

One of my all time favorites:

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 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 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

I want to go back...to the islands...
Where the shrimp boats tie up...to the pilings...
Give me oysters and beer...
For dinner every day of the year...
And I'll feel fine...I'll feel fine...

Jimmy Buffett

I love ANY island - especially tropical :)

I have a few:

"I don't care what consequence it brings,
I have been a fool for lesser things"

Billy Joel talking about love in his song The Longest Time.

"Life is so brief and time is a thief when you're undecided"

Rod Stewart's Young Hearts

and, last but not least,

"Once upon a time I was falling in love, now I'm only falling apart"

Bonnie Tyler, Total Eclipse of the Heart

I have many many favorite songs. I think my all time favorite is "Jesus Loves Me." I found myself singing it one day when I was eight years old. I was feeling extremely sad and just started singing it and felt better. It still works today and I am many years older. I sing either Annie's song or Jiminy Cricket's song when I am feeling stressed. They put a smile on my face everytime. I wrote about "Our" favorite love songs on another post. Forever and Last Date.
