Grace  -  U2

 

Grace
She carries a world on her hips
No champagne flute for her lips
No twirls or skips between her fingertips
She carries a pearl
In perfect condition
What once was hurt
What once was friction
What left a mark
No longer stings
Because Grace makes beauty
Out of ugly things
Grace finds beauty
In everything
Grace finds goodness in everything

Let Your Soul Be Your Pilot

 

Sting: "A friend of mine has AIDS, and it's a privilege to be around him because he has turned a corner and every moment to him is charged with meaning. He's so aware all of the time, and so he inspired 'Let Your Soul Be Your Pilot'. It's a song about death, or dealing with death in a way that offers some sort of hope. I actually think it's quite an uplifting song - the intent is for it to be uplifting."
Q magazine, 5/96

Caroline (Concrete Blonde):

 

"In another life I see you as an angel flying high
And the hands of time will free you
You will cast your chains aside
And the dawn will come and kiss away
Every tear that's ever fallen from your eyes
Behind those eyes I wonder"

Cheryl Crowe's "Soak up the Sun" always lifts my spirits.  Particularly the verse: 

 

I don't have digital,

I don't have diddly squat,

It's not having what you want,

It's wanting what you've got  

 

Let's all lighten up, I've got no one to blame for every time I feel lame I'm looking up.  I'm gonna go put my 45's on and rock on.

13 (There Is A Light)  -  U2

 

If there is a light
We can't always see
If there is a world
We can't always be
If there is a dark
Now we shouldn't doubt
And there is a light
Don't let it go out

 

 

"I'm a musician. I write songs. I just hope when the day is done I've been able to tear a little corner off of the darkness."  ~  Bono

 

My go-to song every night. Thank you, Bono!

Hides itself away
There is yet another kingdom

Isn't She Lovely (Stevie Wonder)

 

"Truly the angel's best
Boy, I'm so happy
We have been Heaven blessed
I can't believe what God has done
Through us He's given life to one
But isn't she lovely made from love?"

Rock Steady (Sting):  relates the story of Noah and the ark:

 

"So we said we had a mission for his favorite dove
To see if there was any mercy from this great God above
So to find dry land, away the white bird flew
We didn't need no country just a rock would do
When the dove came back to us he threw down a twig
It was manna from heaven and meant we could blow this gig
"But the rock's too small, " he said, "can't you see?"
I said, "It's just perfect for her, it's perfect for me.""

It gives its heat to everyone
There has to be an invisible sun
That gives us hope when the whole day's done"
