life-song

Everyone should have a life-song.

There, I said it. I feel better.

Seriously though — everyone should. I’ve been told that ‘should’ is a bad word and I’m not supposed to use it, but I’m claiming exception to that rule for this post. Everyone SHOULD have a life-song.

So, what’s a life-song? Please don’t confuse this with a theme song. I’ve heard people describe how certain songs are theme songs for their life — however, usually these songs speak to a situation or a feeling that the person is having at that particular moment. This is not what I’m talking about.

I’m talking about a LIFE song.

A song that you can always go to and somehow it just always has a deep conversation with your soul…

A song that sticks around and molds to your core…

A song that resonates from your toes to the tip of the hairs on your head and won’t let go…

A song that no matter where you might be in life — it’s there. Speaking in new ways with the same old lyrics…

A song that makes you laugh when you’re happy, sob when you’re sad, builds you up when you’re low, and knocks you down when you’re proud…

My life-song is Billy Joel’s “Vienna”. (bet you thought I was going to put some scripture or a praise song in there, didn’t you?) It resonates with my soul. It describes my very being. The verses change as I change and the chorus remains constant in those moments when my life remains constant. It follows me, and I can’t shake it.

What’s your life-song?

    I don’t know about any one song that does it for me, but there is a poem that does. The “Desiderata” by Max Ehrmann http://www.fleurdelis.com/desiderata.htm
