    The Ella Henderson rendition of Cher – Believe. It makes me bawl like a baby but it’s so empowering too.

    Demi Lovato’s Skyscraper song

    “You can take everything I have
    You can break everything I am
    Like I’m made of glass
    Like I’m made of paper
    Go on and try to tear me down
    I will be rising from the ground
    Like a skyscraper, like a skyscraper”

    Heard Eurythmics – You Have Placed A Chill In My Heart on the radio the other day, not heard it for years, really hit home. It’s so b****y true.

    U2 One used to remind me of a bittersweet time, quite a sad tale culminated in us listening to this at that time, but nevertheless it was a close and loving memory with my partner.

    Listened to it again today and the lyrics take on new poignance.

    “Have you come here for forgiveness?
    Have you come to raise the dead?
    Have you come here to play Jesus?
    To the lepers in your head
    Well, did I ask too much, more than a lot?
    You gave me nothing, now it’s all I got
    We’re one, but we’re not the same
    See we hurt each other, then we do it again
    You say love is a temple, love is a higher law
    Love is a temple, love is a higher law
    You ask of me to enter, but then you make me crawl
    And I can’t keep holding on to what you got, ’cause all you got is hurt”

    My favourite at the moment is ‘Defying Gravity’ from Wicked.
    ‘Too late for second guessing. Too late to go back to sleep. I have to trust my instincts. Close my eyes and leap’

    ‘And if I’m flying solo, at least I’m flying free. To those who ground me, take a message back from meeeeee’ 💖

    I saw the most wonderful version of a song called Rise Up on Facebook the other day by a young man called Jordan Rabjohn who sings it with his mum. Made the hairs on my neck stand up and can’t stop watching it. The vocals are amazing and the words are very appropriate for all of us on here, it’s worth a watch.

    SHALLOW – 6 years old Sophie Fatu and Mom – youtube

    Tell me somethin’, girl
    Are you happy in this modern world?
    Or do you need more?
    Is there somethin’ else you’re searchin’ for?
    I’m falling
    In all the good times I find myself
    Longin’ for change
    And in the bad times I fear myself
    Tell me something, boy
    Aren’t you tired tryin’ to fill that void?
    Or do you need more?
    Ain’t it hard keeping it so hardcore?
    I’m falling
    In all the good times I find myself
    Longing for a change
    And in the bad times I fear myself
    I’m off the deep end, watch as I dive in
    I’ll never meet the ground
    Crash through the surface, where they can’t hurt us
    We’re far from the shallow now
    In the shallow, shallow
    In the shallow, shallow
    In the shallow, shallow
    We’re far from…
