Lyrics that make my heart sing

Day 29, Wednesday: Five songs or pieces of music that speak to you or bring back memories.

I really had to think about this.  I love music.  There are a lot of songs that make me just want to get up and dance.  I may do a separate post on that.  I dance and sing in my car.  I love it.  Anyway, I digress.  Here are 5 (okay 6) songs that speak to me.  

1. Over You - Miranda Lambert  
Losing someone very close to you is heartbreaking.  This song makes me cry every time I hear it.  When I am ready to sit down and have a good cry, I will replay this song over and over.  After I have my good cry (which isn't pretty), I feel so much better.

2.  This Fragile Breathe - Todd Agnew
A wonderfully powerful song about God speaking to us and us listening.  My favorite line of the song: You speak with thunder and lightning  Your voice shakes the mountains  The foundations of the earth.  How true is that.  I love this song.

3. It's Your Love - Tim McGraw with Faith Hill
This is my husband's and I song.  It was our wedding song.  When we fight, that is our make up song.  The lyrics still speak to me.  This is engraved in my husband's wedding band.  We couldn't fit it in mine.  :(  This will forever be our song.

4. Just the Way You Are - Bruno Mars
Every girl should have a guy that thinks this way.  The one line that sticks out is "You know I would never ask you to change, if perfect is what your searching for then just stay the same. "  Yes!!  Every girl needs this confidence.  Thanks Bruno for reaffirming it.

5.  God Gave Me You - Blake Shelton or Dave Barnes
My ringtone for my husband.  This song gives me goosebumps when I listen to it.  The line I love from this song is "On my own I'm only half of what I could be I can't do without you.  We are stitched together and what love has tethered I pray we never undo."  So true for us.  

Okay - and for my bonus song (look at me being a rule breaker...)

 6. It's My Life - Bon Jovi
This is my anthem on life.  Period. It really is now or never.  When I need to feel empowered I put this song on and pump my fist!  Yes, it is my life.

There are my songs.  It looks like I listen to a lot of country, but I don't.  These songs just speak to me.  I can't wait to see what songs speak to you.

  1. I love, love, love "God Gave Me You" and "Just the Way You Are", and I will listen to anything at all by Tim McGraw. These are great songs! It makes me wonder what else you have on your playlist.

    1. I have an extensive playlist that is all over the board...and I mean all over from symphony (thanks to daughter being in orchestra) to rap to classical. I love music. I will also listen to anything by Tim. I got his autograph at one of the 10 concerts of his I have attended. Also that same year I got Jessica Simpson's autograph and got to be on stage with Simple Plan. That was a great year!!

    1. Me too!! I can officially say that my daughter's first real concert was Bon Jovi. Yeah, we went and saw Hannah Montana, but we bought the tickets 9 months before the concert. By the time the concert rolled around, my daughter didn't like her anymore so we only stayed an

  4. I played Miranda Lambert's song again and again. I love it. Thanks for making me discover this song. :)

    1. I am so happy to help with that. :) I love that song. It really moves me. Her and Blake Shelton wrote it together. It was written for the loss of his brother.
