Lifting Spirits

A flower that grows crooked is still beautiful. A tree scarred by lightning shows character. A crack in the earth may become a lake filled with life. Imperfections do not make a thing unworthy and there is a great beauty found in hardship. We can’t always be dealt the best hand, but we must laugh when we are losing. We must love when we are down. We must sing straight through the storm. Only then will our weaknesses become our strengths. Only then will we know the truest form of peace.

Pull me under 
How many atoms does it take 
To keep me on the surface 
Looking out for something I don’t know 
Well this world 
Is a stone 

I swim for the lighthouse 
Hoping for some light to shine on me 
But no one left the light on 
So here I am singing through the sea 
Singing through the sea 

Low and behold 
I’ve been asking questions 
With answers only I could ever know 
Held below the surface 
By something that I cannot let go 
Well the truth 
Is a stone 

So I swim for the light house 
Hoping for some light to shine on me 
But no one left the light on 
So here I am singing through the sea 
Headed for the shipwreck 
Never caring once for my fate 
Surrender to the current 
Singing Hallelujah all the way 
Im on my way
