Some Inspiring Words

I have this song that I cannot stop listening to because the lyrics haunt me and inspire me at the same time. Many of you know my friend Spencer was a musician (he passed away over a year ago) and how much his music means to me. Well, I got a hold of some music I hadn't heard in a while and I thought I'd share a certain part.

It comes from the song, "So Long Goodbyes".

And you're screaming down a hole that cannot hold your well informed diatribes
Your search for hope is buried low beneath the load of your burning critic eyes
You're happy with comfortable life, but I would cry some tears to see you come alive
And behind it all not scared to fall, but wondering what would happen if you could fly......

And don't you know that could fly?

So say so long to those goodbyes, that you have said so many times before.......
And you're saying them once again
Now turn around and break the trend, face the sun, and lean into the wind......
And the wind of change can be your friend
My friend now say hello to life and hope and second chances that you could never win......
That's why they're not worth it all
So fill the whole and walk away, show them mistakes and grace go hand in hand.

To me, it's such a powerful song that always reminds me of God and how he wants me to live my life. I hope you find something in the songs that you listen to as well.
