I was watching last night’s Glee tribute to Cory Monteith who played Finn on the show and it reminded me of the something in the first book (the prequel to Dark Road Punished). So I thought I would share it.
I wanted to share it in honor of all the people going through a difficult time. It doesn’t matter what is making your life hard, with a little prayer it can get better. And it may take time. So find a shoulder to lean on until it does.
In the prequel Amanda sings the song below. As it is written in the story, this is her song, her words, her life. Enjoy. It does remain untitled. Any suggestions?
The days come and go, just like it’s all the same;
Nobody cares to know, that everything has changed;
The memories they have of me, Are no longer who I seem to be;
Now my road has shifted, and my life’s all twisted.
Wake up my heart, it’s slowly fallen apart;
Show me that I’m still alive and that everything’s gonna be all right;
Fill me up and make me whole, I don’t want to feel alone;
Pick up the pieces of me and put them together so I can be free.
I can’t figure out if I’m going up or down, it feels more like around and around;
Tell me what’s right because I can’t see the light;
I’m lost deep inside this hole and I just can’t seem to let the hurt go;
If I give you my hand, will you take me back to where it all began?
Help me thru this pain, please stop the rain;
There’s a storm inside and I just can’t hide;
I’m ready to take a stand, please hold my hand;
Wrap your loving arms around me tight, I’m here to retake my life.
I’m letting the past go and finally coming home;
it’s a brand new day and I’ve got a whole new way;
you’ve taken a hold of me and showed me who I was made to be;
I’m more alive than I’ve ever been and I’ve been made whole again.
On this beautiful day, my heart is awake;
I’ve found my life and here I am ready to shine;
I’m ready to take on the day;
I’m on my way…
