Theme song for life

Do you have a song in mind that you would consider a great theme song for your life? Remember in your project you can use music, but have you thought about what that song or songs might say about you. Write the name and artist of the song that you think could be used as your theme song. Include a section (not the whole thing) of the song that makes it apply to your life.

Ex. "I Am"- Nicole Nordeman

Lyrics:
Only sixteen, life is so mean
What kind of curfew is at 10 pm?
You saw my mistakes and watched my heart break
Heard when I swore I'd never love again

When I was weak, unable to speak, still I could call you by name
And I said Heartache Healer, Secret keeper, be my best Friend
You said, I am.

The winds of change and circumstance
Blow in and all around us
So we find a foothold that's familiar.
And bless the moments that we feel you nearer.

"You'll Be in My Heart"
Phil Collins

Why can't they understand
the way we feel
They just don't trust
what they can't explain
I know we're different but,
deep inside us
We're not that different at all

It was kinda hard to find a song that applied to my life, so i found one that applies more to life in general:

Life- Our Lady Peace
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?
Oh, Life is waiting for you
So messed up, but we're alive
Oh, Life is waiting for you
So messed up, but we'll survive
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?
(CHORUS)

"I Go Back"- Kenny Chesney

I go back to a two toned short bed Chevy
Drivin my first love out to the levvy
Livin life with no sense of time
And I go back to the feel of a fifty yard line
A blanket, a girl, some raspberry wine
Wishin time would stop right in its tracks
Everytime I hear that song, I go back

"Dance every dance an live each day
As though it's your last
An tell those who you love how you feel
Before it's too late.
Life is right here and now
We only go around just one time
So embrace 'em and don't waste 'em
For these are the days of our lives"

-James Otto
"Days of Our Lives"

"Rollin' down the road, try to loosen my load, I got seven on my mind. Four that want to hold me, two that want to stone me, one says she's a friend of mine. Take it easy, take it easy..."

Soulshine
The Allman Brothers Band

You've got to let your soulshine,
It's better than Sunshine,
Better than moonshine,
Damn sure better than rain.

People don't mind,
We all feel this way sometimes,
You got to let your soulshine
Shine til' the break of day.

"Over My Head"
The Fray

I never knew
I never knew that everything was falling through
That everyone I knew was waiting on a cue
To turn and run when all I needed was the truth
But that's how it's got to be
It's coming down to nothing more than apathy
I'd rather run the other way than stay and see
The smoke and who's still standing when it clears

I would have to say "Be thou my Vision" either just singing it with a guitar out of a hymnal or by Jars of Clay:

Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art.
Thou my best thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

"Young"
Kenny Chesney
Man I don't know, where the time goes
But It sure goes fast, just like that
We were wanna be rebels who didn't have a clue
With our Rock n' roll T-shirts, and our typically bad attitudes
Had no excuses for the things that we'd done
We were brave, we were crazy, we were mostly
Young

"Good Riddance"
Green Day
Another turning point
A fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist
Directs you where to go
So make the best of this test
And don’t ask why
...
So take the photographs
And still frames in your mind
Hang it on a shelf of
Good health and good time
Tattoos of memories

"Strangers Like Me"
- Phil Collins

Whatever you do, I’ll do it too
Show me everything and tell me how
It all means something
And yet nothing to me

I can see there’s so much to learn
It’s all so close and yet so far
I see myself as people see me
Oh, I just know there’s something bigger out there

I wanna know, can you show me
I wanna know about these
Strangers like me
Tell me more, please show me
Something’s familiar about these strangers like me

Wow there's countless songs that I think can apply to my life in one way or another. Here's one of my favorites, and the theme of it can apply to my life.

The comet is coming between
Me and the girl who could make it all clean
and there In the shadows of modern machines
Walks St. Robinson in his Cadillac dream
In his dream
St. Robinson in his dream
Some people are never quite what they seem
Come on baby, come on darling, come on
let's just Get into my car and drive
Come on, get into my car and drive
She says I always do the same things over and over...

"St. Robinson in his Cadillac Dream"

Counting Crows

"Satisfaction"
The Rolling Stones

I can’t get no satisfaction,
I can’t get no satisfaction.
’cause I try and I try and I try and I try.
I can’t get no, I can’t get no.
When I’m drivin’ in my car
And that man comes on the radio
And he’s tellin’ me more and more
About some useless information
Supposed to fire my imagination.

"Breathe"
Anna Nalick

'Cause you can't jump the track, we're like cars on a cable
And life's like an hourglass, glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button, girl.
So cradle your head in your hands
And breathe... just breathe,
Oh breathe, just breathe

"Ordinary Day" Ginny owens

I've lived a lot of life,
Seen so many things,
And I like to think,
Nothing surprises me,
So I try
To take it all in stride,
No matter what tomorrow brings
But Your plans for me
Aren't predictable,
And I find Your dreams
So incredible.
Never commonplace,
And in so many ways,
Always wild and wonderful

Oh, You keep me guessing,
Holding on tight
For the ride of my life
With You, all I can say,
There's no such thing as an ordinary day.
Since You write the script,
I must confess,
I don't always know
What will happen next,
Takes my breath away,
Takes a lot of faith,
'cause I don't know what to expect

Every time a new adventure unfolds,
I realize that I'm not the one in control

I think that a song that is a theme for my life is any Sister Hazel song but mostly
"Change Your Mind"
Hey, Hey
Did you ever think
There might be another way
To just feel better,
Just feel better about today

Oh no-
If you never want to have
To turn and go away
You might feel better,
Might feel better if you stay

[Pre-chorus]
Yeah yeah
I bet you haven't heard
A word I've said
Yeah yeah
If you've had enough
Of all your tryin'
Just give up
The state of mind you're in:

"Loser"
Beck

In the time of chimpanzees I was a monkey
butane in my veins and I'm out to cut the junkie
with the plastic eyeballs, spray-paint the vegetables
dog food stalls with the beefcake pantyhose
kill the headlights and put it in neutral
stock car flamin' with a loser and the cruise control
baby's in Reno with the vitamin D
got a couple of couches, sleep on the love-seat
someone came in sayin' I'm insane to complain
about a shotgun wedding and a stain on my shirt
don't believe everything that you breathe
you get a parking violation and a maggot on your sleeve
so shave your face with some mace in the dark
savin' all your food stamps and burnin' down the trailer park

(yo. Cut it.)

Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me?

(double-barrel buckshy)

Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me?

"One"- U2
Is it getting better?
Or do you feel the same?
Will it make it easier on you now?
You got someone to blame
You say

One love
One life
When it's one need
In the night
One love
We get to share it
Leaves you baby if you
Don't care for it

Did I disappoint you?
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
You act like you never had love
And you want me to go without
Well it's

Too late
Tonight
To drag the past out into the light
We're one, but we're not the same
We get to
Carry each other
Carry each other
One

Have you come here for forgiveness?
Have you come to raise the dead?
Have you come here to play Jesus?
To the lepers in your head

Did I ask too much?
More than a lot.
You gave me nothing,
Now it's all I got
We're one
But we're not the same
Well we
Hurt each other
Then we do it again
You say
Love is a temple
Love a higher law
Love is a temple
Love the higher law
You ask me to enter
But then you make me crawl
And I can't be holding on
To what you got
When all you got is hurt

One love
One blood
One life
You got to do what you should
One life
With each other
Sisters
Brothers
One life
But we're not the same
We get to
Carry each other
Carry each other

One

Hard Candy-Counting Crows

On certain Sundays in November
When the weather bothers me
I empty drawers of other summers
Where my shadows used to be
And she is standing by the water
As her smile begins to curl
In this or any other summer
She is something all together different
Never just an ordinary girl
