Lyrical Friday

Welcome to Lyrical Friday! Music is so important in all of our creative journeys as well as in our own personal soundtrack of life.  So many songs have influenced me and I want to use this day to put up a video and lyrics of songs from all genre’s that I find to have some sort of beauty or impact, or that I just think are awesome.


 
I write because I want people to know they are not alone. Life is hard and if we took time to step outside of ourselves we would realize that we are all in this together. This is a great time of year to be reminded of that. I love this song by Mavis Staples. It is comforting and often the reminder I need.

You Are Not Alone by Mavis Staples

 
You Are Not Alone
You are not alone,
I’m with you
I’m lonely too
What’s that song,
Can’t be sung by two.
A broken home,
A broken heart,
Isolated and afraid,
Open up this is a raid,
I wanna get it through to you,
You’re not alone.
You’re not alone,
Every night,
I stand in your place.
Every tear,
On every face,
Tastes the same.
A broken dream,
A broken heart,
Isolated and afraid,
Open up this is a raid,
I’m gonna get it through to you,
You’re not alone.
An open hand,
An open heart,
There’s no need to be afraid,
Open up this is a raid,
I wanna get it through to you,
You’re not alone.
I wanna get it through to you,
You’re not alone.
I’m gonna get it through to you,
You’re not alone.

  1. Mm, mm…let the music of life sing through you. That’s what I always say. Be it in poetry, in a song, or the simplicity of a smile. Just drink it all in! And it is so good to know our journeys, our toils, are not undertaken alone…
