Inspirational Lyrics Thursday

I really like John Legend and his new CD Evolver is very good. I would recommend you purchase it but I don't want to be the boss of you. The last song on the CD, If You're Out There, really touched me so I thought I would throw its positive message on the old blog since my stories of late have been less than joyful.

If you hear this message, wherever you stand
I'm calling every woman, calling every man
We're the generation, we can't afford to wait
The future started yesterday and we're already late

We've been looking for a song to sing
Searched for a melody, searched for someone to lead
We've been looking for the world to change
If you feel the same, then go on and say

If you're out there, sing along with me
If you're out there, I'm dying to believe that you're out there
Stand up and say it loud, if you're out there
Tomorrow's starting now, now, now

No more broken promises, no more call to war
Unless it's love and peace that we're really fighting for
We can destroy hunger, we can conquer hate
Put down the arms and raise your voice
We're joining hands today

Oh I was looking for a song to sing
I searched for a leader, but the leader was me
We were looking for the world to change
We can be heroes, Just go on and say

If you're out there, sing along with me
If you're out there, I'm dying to believe that you're out there
Stand up and say it loud, if you're out there
Tomorrow's starting now, now, now

If you're ready we can shake the world
Believe again, it starts within
We don't have to wait for destiny
We should be the change that we want to see

If you're out there
Ooooh
If you're out there
And you're ready now
Say it loud, scream it out

If you're out there, sing along with me
If you're out there, I'm dying to believe that you're out there
Stand up and say it loud, if you're out there
Tomorrow's starting now

If you're out there
If you're out there
If you're out there

If you hear this message, wherever you stand
I'm calling every woman, calling every man
We're the generation, we can't afford to wait
The future started yesterday and we're already late
