I spent both yesterday morning and afternoon (going to and from work) sitting in a traffic jam on the highway...what is ordinarily a half hour journey, became about two hours long. In the midst of waiting patiently and contemplating phoning the office to tell them that I wasn't coming in cos like hell was I going to sit through that, the CD changed and a song came on that led me to sing and dance behind the wheel...to the amusement of other motorists. I kept playing it over and over again...all the way to and from work... and this morning again.... and now again..... I've been asking myself, "What about the song has made me behave in such a crazy manner?" Then it dawned on me, it is an upbeat song, with beautiful lyrics. Lyrics which bear testament to the meaning of my life's calling. So I was wondering, at the risk of starting another thread discussing music, are there any other members that have crossed paths with a song with deep meaning. Do you hold a song dear to your heart because it's message expresses a part of your inner reality...Lyrics that set a standard for you in your everyday life...a theme song for your life as such? If so, what is the song? And what are the most powerful lyrics to you? My newly adopted theme song is "A Song for the Lonely" by Cher The lyrics that strike a deep chord within me comes in the form of the chorus: This is a song for the lonely, can you hear me tonight? For the broken hearted, battle scarred, I'll be by your side. This is a song for the lonely, when your dreams won't come true, Can you hear this prayer? Cos someone's there for you.
