It depends on what kind of inspiration I'm looking for. If I'm looking for artistic inspiration I'll listen to artsy music like The Dresden Dolls or Scarling.

"Heal Over" by KT Tunstall (lyrics of the first verse and chorus are in my sig :))
"Moon Song" by Norah Jones
"No Urgency" by Eric Himan
"Bad Day" by Daniel Powter (although it's more of the music video of this song that I like)
"I Will Follow You Into the Dark" by Death Cab for Cutie

So not your normal run-of-the-mill inspirational songs, but they have lyrics that to me really strike home. :)

The "ALLEZ" song sung by Justine is quite inspirational for me :dance:

"I Will Follow You Into the Dark" by Death Cab for Cutie



oooo...love that one. and i'm going by your definition of "motivational" --- lyrics that inspire me, not blatant inspirational songs.

among my favorites are "changes" by 2pac, "wasteland" by 10 years, and "the greatest view" by silverchair

WHITNEY HOUSTON LYRICS

"Greatest Love Of All"

I believe the children are our are future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be
Everybody searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone to fulfill my needs
A lonely place to be
So I learned to depend on me

[Chorus:]
I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone's shadows
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can't take away my dignity
Because the greatest love of all
Is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all
Inside of me
The greatest love of all
Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all

I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be

[Chorus]

And if by chance, that special place
That you've been dreaming of
Leads you to a lonely place
Find your strength in love

I'll Be Your Light : : . .
Here
I want you closer
Don't ever let go
I need you to know that I'm here
Don't worry
No sir, you won't see me run
'Cause I'm far from done
I'm gonna give you all the lovin' your heart needs
When you're standing on the edge I'll reach out so you can see

And I'll be your light
I'm shining in the darkest night
I'll take you to a higher place burnin' so bright
I'll be the song that moves you when all hope is gone
I'll give you strength to carry on
I'm burnin' so bright
I'll be your light

I'll be your light (repeat)

Yes
If the clouds come to cover your sky
Just know that I will stand by
I'll be there
Yes through the hardest of times
Just seek and you will find
That when the world turns cold and almost gray
I can be the one to hold you and show you the way

And I'll be your light
I'm shining in the darkest night
I'll take you to a higher place burnin' so bright
I'll be the song that moves you when all hope is gone
That gives you the strength to carry on
I'm burnin' so bright
I'll be your light

Burnin' bright
Burnin' bright
Burnin' bright

Burnin' bright so you'll see
I can be who you need
Give you faith to believe

And I'll be your light
I'm shining in the darkest night
I'll take you to a higher place burnin' so bright
I'll be the song that moves you when all hope is gone
Gives you strength to carry on
Burnin so bright
I'll be your light

I'll be the light
Gives you strength to carry on
Burnin' so bright

Song: get Up, Stand UpGet Up, Stand Up, stand up for your right (3 times) Get Up, Stand Up, don't give up the fight Preacher man don't tell me heaven is under the earth I know you don't know what life is really worth Is not all that glitters in gold and Half the story has never been told So now you see the light, aay Stand up for your right. Come on Get Up, Stand Up, stand up for your right Get Up, Stand Up, don't give up the fight (Repeat) Most people think great God will come from the sky Take away ev'rything, and make ev'rybody feel high But if you know what life is worth You would look for yours on earth And now you see the light You stand up for your right, yeah! Get Up, Stand Up, stand up for your right Get Up, Stand Up, don't give up the fight Get Up, Stand Up. Life is your right So we can't give up the fight Stand up for your right, Lord, Lord Get Up, Stand Up. Keep on struggling on Don't give up the fight We're sick and tired of your ism and skism game Die and go to heaven in Jesus' name, Lord We know when we understand Almighty God is a living man You can fool some people sometimes But you can't fool all the people all the time So now we see the light We gonna stand up for our right So you'd better get up, stand up, stand up for your right Get Up, Stand Up, don't give up the fight Get Up, Stand Up, stand up for your right Get Up, Stand Up, don't give up the fight.

DIDO LYRICS

"See The Sun"

I'm comin' 'round to open the blinds
You can't hide here any longer
My God you need to rinse those puffy eyes
You can't last here any longer

And yes they'll ask you where you've been
And you'll have to tell them again and again

And you probably don't want to hear tomorrow's another day
Well I promise you you'll see the sun again
And you're asking me why pain's the only way to happiness
And I promise you you'll see the sun again

Come on take my hand
We're going for a walk, I know you can
You can wear anything as long as it's not black
Please don't mourn forever
She's not coming back

And yes they'll ask you where you've been
And you'll have to tell them again and again

And you probably don't want to hear tomorrow's another day
Well I promise you you'll see the sun again
And you're asking me why pain's the only way to happiness
And I promise you you'll see the sun again
And I promise you you'll see the sun again

Do you remember telling me you found the sweetest thing of all
You said one day this was worth dying for
So be thankful you knew her at all
But it's no more

And you probably don't want to hear tomorrow's another day
Well I promise you you'll see the sun again
And you're asking me why pain's the only way to happiness
And I promise you you'll see the sun again
And I promise you you'll see the sun again
And I promise you you'll see the sun again
And I promise you you'll see the sun again
I promise you you'll see the sun again

See the sun again
See the sun again
See the sun again
See the sun again

See the sun again
See the sun again
See the sun again
See the sun again

How was this thread posted?

I didn't even push the "post thread" button :confused:

Anyway, songs like "Hero" (Mariah), "The Greatest Love of All" (Whitney), "Wind Beneath My Wings" (Bette), are what I'd classify as 'inspirational' :)

"Hero" Mariah Carey

Classic example of 'inspirational' :yeah:

Mariah Carey, "Hero".
(Verse 1).
There's a hero, If you look inside your heart,
You don't have to be afraid of what you are.
There's an answer, If you reach into your soul.
And the sorrow that you know will melt away

(Chorus).
And then a hero comes along, With the strength to carry on.
And you cast your fears aside. And you know you can survive.
So when you feel like hope is gone, Look inside you and be strong,
And you'll finally see the truth, That a hero lies in you

(Verse 2).
It's a long road, When you face the world alone,
No one reaches out a hand for you to hold.
You can find love, If you search within yourself,
And the emptiness you felt will disappear.

(Chorus).
And then a hero comes along, With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside, And you know you can survive.
So when you feel like hope is gone, Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth, That a hero lies in you.

(Verse 3).
Lord knows, Dreams are hard to follow.
But don't let anyone Tear them away.
Hold on, There will be tomorrow.
In time You'll find the way.

(Chorus).
And then a hero comes along, With the strength to carry on,
And you cast your fears aside, And you know you can survive.
So when you feel like hope is gone, Look inside you and be strong,
And you'll finally see the truth, That a hero lies in you.

That a hero lies in, you.

The lyrics are so touching :hearts:

Many people have written to Mariah, thanking her for singing a song that makes them feel better about themselves.

Also, songs that's so touching, it'll bring tears to your eyes (e.g. "Hero", Mariah Carey).

I also think "Beautiful" by Christina Aguilera's quite 'inspirational'. Pity the song didn't fit well with her image back then :tape:

Christina Aguilera, "Beautiful".

Don't look at me...

Verse 1.
Every day is so wonderful
And suddenly, i saw debris
Now and then, I get insecure
From all the pain, I'm so ashamed

Chorus.
I am beautiful no matter what they say
Words can't bring me down
I am beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can't bring me down
So don't you bring me down today

Verse 2.
To all your friends, you're delirious
So consumed in all your doom
Trying hard to fill the emptiness
The piece is gone left the puzzle undone
That's the way it is

Chorus.
You are beautiful no matter what they say
Words can't bring you down
You are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can't bring you down
Don't you bring me down today...

Verse 3.
No matter what we do
(no matter what we do)
No matter what they say
(no matter what they say)
When the sun is shining through
Then the clouds won't stay

And everywhere we go
(everywhere we go)
The sun won't always shine
(sun won't always shine)
But tomorrow will find a way
All the other times

Chorus.
'cause we are beautiful no matter what they say
Yes, words won't bring us down, oh no
We are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can't bring us down
Don't you bring me down today

Don't you bring me down today
Don't you bring me down today.

Lucky you were born that far away so
So we could both make fun of distance
Lucky that I love a foreign land for
The lucky fact of your existence
Baby I would climb the Andes solely
To count the freckles on your body
Never could imagine there were only
Too many ways to love somebody

Le lo lo le lo le
Le lo lo le lo le
Can't you see...I'm at your feet

Whenever, wherever
We'll learn to be together
I'll be there and you'll be near
And that's the deal my dear
They're over, you're under
You'll never have to wonder
We can always play by ear
But that's the deal my dear

Lucky that my lips not only mumble
They spill kisses like a fountain
Lucky that my breasts are small and humble
So you don't confuse them with mountains
Lucky I have strong legs like my mother
To run for cover when I need it
And these two eyes are for no other
The day you leave we'll cry a river

Le lo lo le lo le
Le lo lo le lo le
At your feet...I'm at your feet

Whenever, Wherever
We're meant to be together
I'll be there and you'll be near
And that's the deal my dear
They're over, you're under
We're both down under
We can always play by ear
But that's the deal my dear

Le lo lo le lo le
Le lo lo le lo le

Think of love, say it again

Le lo lo le lo le lo le

Tell me one more time
That you'll live
Lost in my eyes

Whenever, wherever
We'll learn to be together
I'll be there and you'll be near
And that's the deal my dear
They're over, you're under
You've got me head over heels
There's nothing left to fear
If you really feel the way I feel

Whenever, wherever
We're meant to be together
I'll be there and you'll be near
And that's the deal my dear
They're over, you're under
You've got me head over heels
There's nothing left to fear
If you really feel the way I feel

WHITNEY HOUSTON LYRICS

"Greatest Love Of All"

I believe the children are our are future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be
Everybody searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone to fulfill my needs
A lonely place to be
So I learned to depend on me

[Chorus:]
I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone's shadows
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can't take away my dignity
Because the greatest love of all
Is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all
Inside of me
The greatest love of all
Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all

I believe the children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be

[Chorus]

And if by chance, that special place
That you've been dreaming of
Leads you to a lonely place
Find your strength in love

It'd be best if she divorced Bobby sooner rather than later. She was so awesome before that ill-fated marriage.
