This is my Song...


It's hard for me to pick just one song because music has been - and is - such a big part of my life.  But the song that I chose is one of the songs on my recovery playlist.  It has been a calm in my chaotic world.  It has given me strength, hope, & peace.  It has... just like the title says... Lifted me up. 

"Lift Me Up" 
Kate Voegele

This road is anything but simple
Twisted like a riddle
I've seen high and I've seen low
So loud, the voices of all my doubts
Telling me to give up
To pack up and leave town

But even so I had to believe
Impossible means nothing to me

So can you lift me up?
And turn the ashes into flames
'Cause I have overcome more than words will ever say
And I've been given hope
That there's a light on up the hall
And that a day will come when the fight is won
And I think that day has just begun

Somewhere, everybody starts there
Counting on a small prayer
Lost in a nightmare
But I'm here and suddenly it's so clear
The struggle through the long years
It taught me to outrun my fears

And everything that's worth having
Comes with trials worth withstanding

[Chorus]

Oh lift me up, oh lift me up, oh lift me up
Oh lift me up, oh lift me up, oh lift me up
Down and out is overrated
I need to be elevated
Looking up is not enough
I would rather rise above

[Chorus]
