Lift me up :)

by Klairewind


Plain talking (plain talking)
Take us so far (take us so far)
Broken down cars (broken down cars)
Like strung-out old stars (like strung-out old stars)

Plain talking (plain talking)
Served us so well (served us so well)
Travelled through hell (travelled trough hell)
We know how it felt (we know how it felt)

Lift me up, lift me up
Higher now ama
Lift me up, lift me up
Higher now ama

Plain talking (plain talking)
Making us bold (making us bold)
So strong out and cold (so strong out and cold)
Feeling so old (feeling so old)

Plain talking (plain talking)
Has ruined us now (has ruined us now)
You never know how (you never know how)
Sweeter than thou (sweeter than thou)

Lift me up, lift me up
Higher now ama
Lift me up, lift me up
Higher now ama
[4x]

Lift me up, lift me up
Ohla la la la
Lift me up, lift me up
Ohla la la la
[4x]

if things seem to go well and someone or something stops you in your tracks, go on.

 

it takes a large amount of courage to take the risk.  like they say, it’s always better to try than to have never tried at all and wonder about how things may have gone all your life.

 

mistakes doesn’t make you less of a person. i remember the lines said by Jessica in the movie Eclipse:

 

When we were five, they asked us what we wanted to be when we grew up. Our answers were thing like astronaut, president, or in my case… princess.

When we were ten, they asked again and we answered – rock star, cowboy, or in my case, gold medalist. But now that we’ve grown up, they want a serious answer. Well, how ’bout this: who the hell knows?!

This isn’t the time to make hard and fast decisions, its time to make mistakes. Take the wrong train and get stuck somewhere chill. Fall in love – a lot. Major in philosophy ’cause there’s no way to make a career out of that. Change your mind. Then change it again, because nothing is permanent.

So make as many mistakes as you can. That way, someday, when they ask again what we want to be… we won’t have to guess. We’ll know.”

Move.  Move forward. That’s how it is to live and be alive. If you must throw away your pride, do so. Having dignity is far different from nursing your pride. Humility isn’t humiliating in itself.
