Music to express ourselves, music to inspire, songs you'd think one of us wrote. I thought of this one because, ironically, of praise I've received for my willingness to care for someone: "Superman (It's Not Easy)" by Five for Fighting. You can find it on YouTube via Google (Bing, etc.)

I listen to music when I walk. Both the walk and music is my therapy. Here are a few of the songs I have in my playlist:

Fighter by Christina Aguilera
Happy by Pharrell Williams
It Gets Better by Todrick Hall
What About Me by Shannon Noll
Beautiful by Everything But The Girl
Southern State of Mind by Darius Rucker

Oh, yes LadeeM it took me awhile but I managed to get to this thread. I like the idea of taking a song and changing the words to it. I think it would be fun. I am going to post just the lyrics to that song and then we can see what kind of creative fun will develop. We have already played some with the song title.

I downloaded this music in my Kindle because I liked the sound, rhythm, etc... There must have been an update on the Music because today, I saw that my kindle now has a caption! (Lyrics of the song playing.)

Brave by Sara Bareilles. I first heard her songs on the YouTube videos of Children's cancer hospital. So, I downloaded it. Today, as I read the words of song as she was singing it, I realized that I could apply this in my life as a caregiver towards my grumpy father's attitude.

You can be amazing
You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug
You can be the outcast
Or be the backlash of somebody’s lack of love
Or you can start speaking up

Nothing’s gonna hurt you the way that words do
When they settle ‘neath your skin
Kept on the inside and no sunlight
Sometimes a shadow wins
But I wonder what would happen if you

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave
With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

Everybody’s been there,
Everybody’s been stared down by the enemy
Fallen for the fear
And done some disappearing,
Bow down to the mighty
Don’t run, just stop holding your tongue

Maybe there’s a way out of the cage where you live
Maybe one of these days you can let the light in
Show me how big your brave is

And since your history of silence
Won’t do you any good,
Did you think it would?
Let your words be anything but empty
Why don’t you tell them the truth?

Yesterday was a bad one for me, so I googled Bobby McFerrin's "Don't Worry Be Happy" video and watched it several times. I woke up with it in my head this morning. Stock market crashes, car breaks down, termites chewing on the house, father running through house with no clothes on -- Don't worry, be happy. Stressing about it all just steals the joy we could feel right now.

Think we need to resurrect this thread??? How 'bout it ya'll..... we need some laughter.... or at least I do...
On the "YOU" thread we were talking about rewording " A Southern State of Mind" by Darius Rucker, to " A Caregiver State of Mind"..... who want to play???

"Out Here on My Own" by Irene Cara. The lyrics and faith in God guide me through difficult times:

Sometimes I wonder
Where I've been
Who I am, do I fit in?
Make-believing is hard alone
Out here, on my own
We're always proving
Who we are
Always reaching
For that rising star
To guide me far
And shine me home
Out here on my own
When I'm down and feeling blue
I close my eyes so I can be with you
Oh, baby, be strong for me
Baby, belong to me
Help me through
Help me need you
Until the morning sun appears
Making light of all my fears
I dry the tears I've never shown
out here on my own
But when I'm down and feeling blue
I close my eyes so I can be with you
Oh, baby, be strong for me
Baby, belong to me
Help me through
Help me need you
Sometimes I wonder
Where I've been
Who I am, do I fit in?
I may not win
But I can't be thrown
Out here on my own
Out here
On my own

@twopupsmom I haven't heard that song in a while but how true! Will have to play on YouTube when I have some privacy.

Meanwhile, someone with a talent for parodies needs to turn "Walkin' in Memphis" into "Walking on Eggshells." I hear over the correct words in the refrain:
"Walking on eggshells/ Walking with one foot stuck in my mouth..."

It's been that kind of week.

A silly song I like to help lift my mood:
I'd like to be
Under the sea
In an octopus' garden
In the shade

He'd let us in
Knows where we've been
In his octopus' garden
In the shade

I'd ask my friends
To come and see
An octopus' garden
With me

I'd like to be
Under the sea
In an octopus' garden
In the shade

We would be warm
Below the storm
In our little hideaway
Beneath the waves

Resting our head
On the seabed
In an octopus' garden
Near a cave

We would sing
And dance around
Because we know
We can't be found

I'd like to be
Under the sea
In an octopus' garden
In the shade

We would shout
And swim about
The coral that lies
Beneath the waves
(Lies beneath the ocean waves)

Oh what joy
For every girl and boy
Knowing they're happy
And they're safe
(Happy and they're safe)

We would be so happy
You and me
No one there to tell us
What to do

I'd like to be
Under the sea
In an octopus' garden
With you

In an octopus' garden
With you
In an octopus' garden
With you

The Beatles

Strong Enough by Matthew West
You must, You must think I'm strong
To give me what I'm going through
Well, forgive me, forgive me if I'm wrong
But this looks like more than I can do on my own

I know I'm not strong enough to be
Everything that I'm supposed to be
I give up, I'm not strong enough

Hands of mercy, won't You cover me?
Lord, right now I'm asking You to be
Strong enough, strong enough
For the both of us, yeah

Well maybe, maybe that's the point
To reach the point of giving up
'Cause when I'm finally, finally at rock bottom
Well, that's when I start looking up and reaching out

I know I'm not strong enough to be
Everything that I'm supposed to be
I give up, I'm not strong enough

Hands of mercy, won't You cover me?
Lord, right now I'm asking You to be
Strong enough, strong enough

'Cause I'm broken, down to nothing
But I'm still holding on to the one thing
You are God and You are strong
When I am weak

I can do all things
Through Christ who gives me strength
I don't have to be strong enough
Strong enough

I can do all things
Through Christ who gives me strength
And I don't have to be strong enough
Strong enough, oh, yeah

I know I'm not strong enough to be
Everything that I'm supposed to be
I give up, I'm not strong enough

Hands of mercy, won't You cover me?
Lord, right now I'm asking You to be
Strong enough, strong enough
Strong enough

For anyone coping with dementia how about Baba O'Riley by The Who, except instead of teenage wasteland call it senile wasteland. Actually very funny how well it fits!
