Lyrics – Never Surrender

Just a little more time is all we’re asking for
Cause just a little more time could open closing doors
Just a little uncertainty can bring you down

And nobody wants to know you now
And nobody wants to show you how

So if you’re lost and on your own
You can never surrender
And if your path won’t lead you home
You can never surrender
And when the night is cold and dark
You can see, you can see light
Cause no one can take away your right
To fight and never surrender

With a little perseverance you can get things done
Without the blind adherence that has conquered some

And nobody wants to know you now
And nobody wants to show you how

So if you’re lost and on your own
You can never surrender
And if your path won’t lead you home
You can never surrender
And when the night is cold and dark
You can see, you can see light
Cause no one can take away your right
To fight and never surrender
To never surrender

Lyrics: It’s A Beautiful Day by Queen

It’s a beautiful day
The sun is shining
I feel good
And no-one’s gonna stop me now, oh yeah

It’s a beautiful day
I feel good, I feel right
And no-one, no-one’s gonna stop me now
Mama

Sometimes I feel so sad, so sad, so bad
But no-one’s gonna stop me now, no-one
It’s hopeless – so hopeless to even try

Runnin’ Down A Dream by Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers is in my My Morning Kickstart Music List.

Runnin’ Down A Dream by Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers is in my My Morning Kickstart Music List.

The idea of ‘runnin’ down a dream that never would come to me” really catches my attention.

Yeah, runnin’ down a dream
Never would come to me
Workin’ on a mystery
Goin’ wherever it leads
I’m runnin’ down a dream

Lyrics – Runnin’ Down a Dream

It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down
I had the radio on, I was drivin’
The trees went by, me and Del were singin’
Little runaway, I was flyin’

Yeah, runnin’ down a dream
Never would come to me
Workin’ on a mystery
Goin’ wherever it leads
I’m runnin’ down a dream

Felt so good like anything was possible
I hit cruise control and rubbed my eyes
The last three days the rain was unstoppable
And it was always cold, no sunshine

Yeah, runnin’ down a dream
Never would come to me
Workin’ on a mystery
Goin’ wherever it leads
I’m runnin’ down a dream

I rolled on, the sky grew dark
I put my pedal down to make some time
And there’s something good waitin’ down this road
And I’m picking up whatever is mine

Yeah, runnin’ down a dream
Never would come to me
Workin’ on a mystery
Goin’ wherever it leads
I’m runnin’ down a dream

Yeah, runnin’ down a dream
Never would come to me
Workin’ on a mystery
Goin’ wherever it leads
I’m runnin’ down a dream

Chariots Of Fire by Vangelis Is In My Morning Kickstart Music List

Chariots Of Fire by Vangelis is part of My Morning Kickstart Music List.

This is a wonderful piece of music, and the film is a wonderful presentation of history.

I added this because of the theme of someone overcoming seemingly odds. Inspiring.

Vangelis – Chariots Of Fire

Chariots of Fire – the film

Chariots of Fire is a 1981 British historical drama film.

It tells the fact-based story of two athletes in the 1924 Olympics:

  • Eric Liddell, a devout Scottish Christian who runs for the glory of God, and
  • Harold Abrahams, an English Jew who runs to overcome prejudice.

The film’s title was inspired by the line, “Bring me my chariot of fire,” from the William Blake poem adapted into the popular British hymn “Jerusalem“; the hymn is heard at the end of the film.

The original phrase “chariot(s) of fire” is from 2 Kings 2:11 and 6:17 in the Bible.

My Silver Lining Has Been Added to My Morning Kickstart Music List

I have added “My Silver Lining” by First Aid Kit to my My Morning Kickstart Music List.

I am sharing it with the video Weightless featuring Jean-Baptiste Chandelier. You can find his other videos on his YouTube channel.

I love watching this video. It gets me soaring.

Weightless – Jean-Baptiste Chandelier

First Aid Kit is a Swedish folk duo that consists of the sisters Klara and Johanna Söderberg.

My Silver Lining Lyrics

I don’t want to wait anymore I’m tired of looking for answers
Take me some place where there’s music and there’s laughter
I don’t know if I’m scared of dying but I’m scared of living too fast, too slow
Regret, remorse, hold on, oh no I’ve got to go
There’s no starting over, no new beginnings, time races on
And you’ve just gotta keep on keeping on
Gotta keep on going, looking straight out on the road
Can’t worry ’bout what’s behind you or what’s coming for you further up the road
I try not to hold on to what is gone, I try to do right what is wrong
I try to keep on keeping on
Yeah I just keep on keeping on

I hear a voice calling
Calling out for me
These shackles I’ve made in an attempt to be free
Be it for reason, be it for love
I won’t take the easy road

I’ve woken up in a hotel room, my worries as big as the moon
Having no idea who or what or where I am
Something good comes with the bad
A song’s never just sad
There’s hope, there’s a silver lining
Show me my silver lining
Show me my silver lining

I hear a voice calling
Calling out for me
These shackles I’ve made in an attempt to be free
Be it for reason, be it for love
I won’t take the easy road

I won’t take the easy road
The easy road, the easy road

I won’t take the easy road
The easy road, the easy road

Show me my silver lining, I try to keep on keeping on
Show me my silver lining, I try to keep on keeping on
Show me my silver lining, I try to keep on keeping on
Show me my silver lining, I try to keep on keeping on
