Favourite lyrics

This song is already pretty old. I think I was about 10 years old when I was listening to it. And I still am. I'm also listening to it at the moment that I'm writing this. I absolutely think this is one of the best lyrics I've ever heard.

Christina Aguilera - Soar
When they push when they pull, tell me can you hold on
When they say you should change can you lift your head high and stay strong
Will you give up, give in, when your heart's crying out that it's wrong
Will you love you for you at the end of it all

Now, in life, there's gonna be times when you're feeling low
And in your mind insecurity seems to take control
We start to look outside ourselves for acceptance and approval
We keep forgettin' that the one thing we should know is

Don't be scared to fly alone, find a path that is your own
Love will open every door it's in your hands, the world is yours
Don't hold back and always know, all the answers will unfold
What are you waiting for, spread your wings and soar

The boy who wonders is he good enough for them
He's tryin' to please 'em all but he just never seems to fit in
Then there's the girl who thinks she'll never ever be good enough for him
She's tryin' to change and that's a game she'll never win

In life there's gonna be times when you're feeling low
And in your mind insecurity seems to take control
We start to look outside ourselves for acceptance and approval
We keep forgettin' that the one thing we should know is

Don't be scared to fly alone, find a path that is your own
Love will open every door it's in your hands, the world is yours
Don't hold back and always know, all the answers will unfold
What are you waiting for, spread your wings and soar

In the mirror is where she comes face to face with her fears
Her own reflection, now foreign to her after all these years
All of her life she has tried to be something besides herself
Now time has passed and she's ended up someone else with regret

What is it in us that makes us feel the need to keep pretending
Gotta let ourselves be

Don't be scared to fly alone, find a path that is your own
Love will open every door it's in your hands, the world is yours
Don't hold back and always know, all the answers will unfold
What are you waiting for, spread your wings and soar

Don't be scared to fly alone, find a path that is your own
Love will open every door it's in your hands, the world is yours
Don't hold back and always know, all the answers will unfold
What are you waiting for, spread your wings and soar

Don't wait, no more
Spread your wings and soar
Don't wait, no more
You can soar

So What you waiting for?

So these are my favourite lyrics. What do you think about them? And what are your favorite lyrcis, if you have them?

Well, I am more into lyrics who are a bit of... dark. Depressing, might be. But I can see how that song relates to the way you feel about things, just like you said in your latest post. About dressing the way you want to. So I respect it.

I can really relate to the lyrics of Paramore - Decode. I don't know why, actually.

Ahhh, I used to listen to this when I was about ten, too. I found it really inspiring then, thank you for reminding me of this. x
