Song of the Week: Soar by Christina Aguilera

Because I’ve been feeling like “Epic Fail” lately (I’m trying to convince myself that I’m really “Colossal Success”), here’s a great song by Christina Aguilera called “Soar” that I think is incredibly inspirational.

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 hearts crying out
That its wrong
Will you love you for you
At the end of it all

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 forgetting that
The one thing we should know is

(Chorus)
Don’t be scared to fly alone,
Find a path that is your own
Love will open every door
Its 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
Keeps trying to please em all
But he just never seems to fit in
Then there the girl who thinks
Shell never ever be good enough for him
Keeps trying to change
And that’s a game shell never win

Now in life there’s gonna be times
When you’re feeling low
And in your mind insecurities
Seem to take control
We start to look outside ourselves
For acceptance and approval
We keep forgetting that the one thing
We should know is

(Chorus)

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 beside 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

(Repeat chorus 2x)

    I’m not a big Aguilira fan—just because of the musical style, though I agree these lyrics are nice…
    BUT! I love one song by her that I put on my blog a while back…at the time I was hurting really bad and it just made me happy…
    maybe you’ll like it too…I suppose you probably already know it…I don’t generally follow her stuff…
    but it is at this moment dedicated to you:

    Love you and you are BEAUTIFUL in every single way…yes indeed you’re a colossal success!!

    Thanks, Gianna. I remember that post. It is one of my faves. And “Beautiful” is one of my favorite Christina Aguilera songs. “Soar” is from the same album. I’m trying not to let “anybody bring me down today.”

    If not I recommend you do…it’s bound to make you feel better.
