Wednesday’s Lyrics #3

Wednesday's Lyrics

What’s Wednesday’s Lyrics?

The concept is quite simple really and it goes a little something like this:

Each Wednesday I’ll post lyrics to a song that has inspired or moved me and a brief reason why I chose it. It may not be a song I heard that week. It could be one that popped into my head from years long gone. It could be the entire song or just a few lines.

Please feel free to join the link up and share the song lyrics that have inspired or moved you.

This is a go to song of mine when I’m feeling like I’ve failed or can’t accomplish something. It helps to pick me up and keep trying.

“Strength, Courage & Wisdom”
by India.Arie

Inside my head there lives a dream that I want to see in the sun
Behind my eyes there lives a me that I’ve been hiding for much too long
‘Cause I’ve been, too afraid to let it show
‘Cause I’m scared of the judgment that may follow
Always putting off my living for tomorrow
It’s time to step out on faith, I’ve gotta show my face
It’s been elusive for so long, but freedom is mine today
I’ve gotta step out on faith, It’s time to show my face
Procrastination had me down but look what I have found, I found

[Chorus:]
Strength, courage, and wisdom
And it’s been inside of me all along,
Strength, courage, and wisdom
Inside of me

Behind my pride there lives a me, that knows humility
Inside my voice there is a soul, and in my soul there is a voice
But I’ve been, too afraid to make a choice
‘Cause I’m scared of the things that I might be missing
Running too fast to stop and listen

It’s time to step out on faith, I’ve gotta show my face
It’s been elusive for so long but freedom is mine today
I’ve gotta step out on faith it’s time to show my face
Procrastination had me down but look what I have found, I found

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
I close my eyes and I think of all the things that I want to see
‘Cause I know, now that I’ve opened up my heart I know that
Anything I want can be, so let it be, so let it be:.

Strength, courage, and wisdom
It’s been inside of me all along,
Strength, courage, wisdom
It’s been inside of me all along, everyday I’m praying for:

[Chorus]

Vamp
I found it in me, I found it finally
I’m sure to keep it’ cause I like it, I say thank you
