Don’t Give Up

Bruno Mars.. says it well! ‘Don’t give up!’ 
In this proud land we grew up strong

We were wanted all along

I was taught to fight, taught to win

I never thought I could fail

No fight left or so it seems

I am a man whose dreams have all deserted

I’ve changed my face, I’ve changed my name

But no one wants you when you lose

Don’t give up

‘Cause you have friends

Don’t give up

You’re not beaten yet

Don’t give up

I know you can make it good

Though I saw it all around

Never thought I could be affected

Thought that we’d be the last to go

It is so strange the way things turn

Drove the night toward my home

The place that I was born, on the lakeside

As daylight broke, I saw the earth

The trees had burned down to the ground

Don’t give up

You still have us

Don’t give up

We don’t need much of anything

Don’t give up

‘Cause somewhere there’s a place

Where we belong

Rest your head

You worry too much

It’s going to be alright

When times get rough

You can fall back on us

Don’t give up

Please don’t give up

‘Got to walk out of here

I can’t take anymore

Going to stand on that bridge

Keep my eyes down below

Whatever may come

And whatever may go

That river’s flowing

That river’s flowing

Moved on to another town

Tried hard to settle down

For every job, so many men

So many men no-one needs

Don’t give up

‘Cause you have friends

Don’t give up

You’re not the only one

Don’t give up

No reason to be ashamed

Don’t give up

You still have us

Don’t give up now

We’re proud of who you are

Don’t give up

You know it’s never been easy

Don’t give up

‘Cause I believe there’s the a place

There’s a place where we belong

Bruno Mars Song

World’s Greatest 

I am a mountain, 

I am a tall tree, oh

I am a swift wind 

Sweeping the country
I am a river, 

Down in the valley, oh

I am a vision

And I can see clearly
If anybody asks you who I am, just stand up tall, look ’em in the face and say
I’m that star up in the sky

I’m that mountain peak up high

Hey I made it, hmm

I’m the worlds greatest
I’m that little bit of hope

When my back’s against the ropes

I can feel it, hmm

I’m the worlds greatest
I am a giant

I am an eagle oh

I am a lion

Down in the jungle

I am a marching band

I am the people oh

I am a helping hand 

I am a hero
If anybody asks you who I am, just stand up tall look ’em in the face and say
I’m that star up in the sky

I’m that mountain peak up high

Hey I made it, hmm

I’m the worlds greatest
I’m that little bit of hope

When my back’s against the ropes

I can feel it, hmm

I’m the worlds greatest
In the ring of life,

I’ll reign love (i will reign) 

And the world will notice a king (oh, yeah) 

When all is darkness,

I’ll shine a light (shine a light) 

And the mirrors of sucesss reflect in me (me)

I’m that star up in the sky

I’m that mountain peak up high

Hey I made it

I’m the worlds greatest
I’m that little bit of hope

When my back’s against the ropes

I can feel it (feel it)

I’m the worlds greatest
I’m that star up in the sky

I’m that mountain peak up high

Hey I made it

I’m the worlds greatest
I’m that little bit of hope

When my back’s against the ropes

I can feel it

I’m the worlds greatest
I’m that star up in the sky

I’m that mountain peak up high

Hey I made it

I’m the worlds greatest
I’m that little bit of hope

When my back’s against the ropes

I can feel it

I’m the worlds greatest
can you feel it?

(Can you feel it?) he’s the greatest

(He’s the greatest) can you feel it?

(Can you feel it?) i saw the light

(He’s the greatest) at the end of the tunnel

(Can you feel it?) believe in a pot of gold

(He’s the greatest) at the end of a rainbow

Wish


When a star is born

They possess a gift or two

One of them is this

They have the power to make a wish come true

When you wish upon a star

Makes no difference who you are

Anything your heart desires will come to you

If your heart is in your dream

No request is too extreme

When you wish upon a star

As dreamers do

Fate is kind

She brings to those who love

The sweet fulfillment of their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue

Fate steps in and sees you through

When you wish upon a star

Your dreams come true

When you wish upon a star

Makes no difference who you are

Anything your heart desires will come to you

If your heart is in your dream

No request is too extreme

When you wish upon a star

As dreamers do

Fate is kind

She brings to those who love

The sweet fulfillment of their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue

Fate steps in and sees you through

When you wish upon a star

Your dreams come true
While this song is beautiful and sweet..I feel that JK Rowling actually has a better measure of life ‘It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live’.  

Princess Diaries 

Joe: Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent.

Mia: Eleanor Roosevelt said that.

 Joe: Ah, yes. Another special lady like yourself.

It’s always interesting where one first hears a quote. I first heard this quote watching Princess Diaries! I still love that movie – my nan and I must have watched it dozens of times. And I still love the quote.

Enough

Lyrics from “Mulan”Composed by Matthew Wilder and David Zippel
Look at me

I will never pass for a perfect bride

Or a perfect daughter

Can it be

I’m not meant to play this part?
Now I see

That if I were truly to be myself

I would break my family’s heart
Who is that girl I see

Staring straight back at me?

Why is my reflection someone I don’t know?
Somehow I cannot hide who I am, though I’ve tried

When will my reflection show who I am inside?

When will my reflection show who I am inside?
