Wisdom Wednesday #14 – Live

I feel there is a soundtrack to my life that has been shaped by the music that I listened to over the years.  Music is a mini time capsule, like a picture, certain songs capture specific moments in time.  I often relate certain songs or bands to specific events or people in my life.

I have listened to One Republic radio regularly at work via Pandora (yes Pandora).  I absolutely love their Native Album.  Love.  Love.  Love it!  Their song “I lived” speaks to where I am in my life.  I have always crafted my life as I please, but facing my fears this year has added more color to my life.  This year alone feels like two years with all the lessons, growth and surprises that I have experienced.  The song also speaks to my wish for the people of the world – to live without fear.  May this song speak to you or ignite your wish to – Live.  Happy Wednesday. :)

“I lived” by  One Republic from the Native Album.

Hoping you take that jump, But don’t feel the fall. Hope when the water rises, You build a wall.

Hope when the crowd screams out It’s screaming your name Hope if everybody runs You chose to stay

Hope that you fall in love And it hurts so bad The only way you can know Is give it all you have

And I hope that you don’t suffer But take the pain Hope when the moment comes, you’ll say

I….. I did it all I….. I did it all I owned every second that this world could give I saw so many places The things that I did Yeah, with every broken bone I swear I lived

Hope that you spend your days But they all add up And when that sun goes down Hope you raise your cup Oh, oh

I wish that I could witness All your joy And all your pain But until my moment comes I’ll say

I….I did it all I….I did it all I owned every second that this world could give I saw so many places The things that I did Yeah with every broken bone I swear I lived

Oh whoa oh oh oh oh oh (x4)

With every broken bone I swear I lived With every broken bone I swear I

I….I did it all I….I did it all I owned every second that this world could give I saw so many places The things that I did Yeah with every broken bone I swear I lived

Oh whoa oh oh oh oh oh (x2) I swear I lived Oh whoa oh oh oh oh oh (x2)
