March Writing Challenge- Day 22: What’s Your Personal Anthem Or Theme Song?


pinterest.com

When you are someone like me who an extreme music lover, you don’t normally have a personal anthem or theme song; well, you don’t necessarily have one.

I like to think of them as my go-to songs. Songs that speak not only to my heart but my soul. Songs that describe me as closely as any song can. The songs that’ll make you want to dance, the good ole today’s type of songs, because I’m not really feeling today’s music or dance.

And a few of those songs are (and their partial lyrics):

1.Fantasia- I Believe

I can see it in the stars across the sky
Dreamt a hundred thousand dreams before
Now I finally realize
You see I’ve waited all my life
For this moment to arrive
And finally
I believe
When you look out in the distance
You see it never was that far
Ohh-no
Heaven knows your existence
And leads you to be everything you are
Ohh
There’s a time for every soul to fly
It’s in the eyes of every child
It’s the hope, the love that saves the world
And, ohh, we should never let it go
I can see it in the stars across the sky (yeah-yeah-yeah)
Dreamt a hundred thousand dreams before
Now I finally realize
You see I’ve waited all my life
For this moment to arrive
And finally
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
I believe in the impossible
If I reach deep within my heart, yeah
Overcome any obstacle
Won’t let this dream fall apart
See, I strive to be the very best
Shine my light for all to see
Cause anything is possible
When you believe

—Written by: Sam Watters, Tamyra Gray & Louis Biancaniello, 2005

  1. Lenny Kravitz- Fly Away
I wish that I could fly
Into the sky
So very high
Just like a dragonfly
I’d fly above the trees
Over the seas in all degrees
To anywhere I please, oh
I want to get away
I want to fly away
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I want to get away
I want to fly away
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Let’s go and see the stars
The Milky Way or even Mars
Where it could just be ours
Let’s fade into the sun
Let your spirit fly
Where we are one
Just for a little fun
Oh, oh, oh yeah…
——Lenny A. Kravitz, 1998
3. Madonna- Human Nature
Express yourself don’t repress yourself
Express yourself don’t repress yourself
—Madonna, 1995
 
4. India Arie- Video
Now don’t be offended this is all my opinion
Ain’t nothing that I’m saying law
This is a true confession
Of a life learned lesson
I was sent here to share with y’all
So get in when you fit in
Go on and shine
Clear your mind
Now’s the time
Put your salt on the shelf
Go on and love yourself
Cause everything’s gonna be alright
I’m not the average girl from your video
And I ain’t built like a supermodel
But I learned to love myself unconditionally
Because I am a queen
I not the average girl from your video
My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes
No matter what I’m wearing I will always be
India.Arie
