I Have A New Theme Song

Posted by on September 11, 2010 at 9:02 am.

Well, one to add to my list – but it’s a short list.

So far there are only two that spring readily to mind worthy of being my ‘theme. The first is an oldie, Gloria Gaynor’s I Will Survive. The second is from the movie Footloose, Bonnie Taylor, Holding out for a Hero.

My new addition started poking into my consciousness during my “OMG will I make it in time” flight home last month. Just two lines from Jewel’s, Hands.

“Not to worry ’cause worry is wasteful
and useless in times like this.”

had me calming down enough to not drive myself completely nuts on the 5-hour legs of my trip from Calgary to Halifax. (when I couldn’t text my brother and get updates on my father’s condition).

For this I am eternally grateful to Jewel.

Last night was a rough night, so I sang along as I played it over and over. Jewel has nailed my perspective, which makes her the third song in my “Sue’s Theme Song List”

Here are the rest of the lyrics:

If I could tell the world just one thing
It would be that we’re all OK
And not to worry ’cause worry is wasteful
And useless in times like these
I won’t be made useless
I won’t be idle with despair
I will gather myself around my faith
For light does the darkness most fear
My hands are small, I know
But they’re not yours, they are my own (x2)
And I am never broken
Poverty stole your golden shoes
It didn’t steal your laughter
And heartache came to visit me
But I knew it wasn’t ever after
We’ll fight, not out of spite
For someone must stand up for what’s right
‘Cause where there’s a man who has no voice
There ours shall go singing
My hands are small I know
But they’re not yours, they are my own (x2)
I am never broken
In the end only kindness matters (x2)
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray (x3)
My hands are small I know
But they’re not yours, they are my own (x2)
And I am never broken
My hands are small I know
But they’re not yours, they are my own (x2)
And I am never broken
We are never broken

Thanks Jewel

As I post this I’m reminded of today’s date. The lyrics for this song fit today’s theme too. My heart goes out to everyone affected 9 years ago when the planes attacked.

“In the end, only kindness matters….We are never broken”

Peace be with you!
