Two songs to lift our spirits.

Well good afternoon everyone, I feel like raising spirits today …. Not Bacardi, I shall leave that to Morgarna , though at the moment she may have to make do with Dark Rum.

Right I am sliding off piste here. I want to actually raising our spirits as in realising we are all special we are all heroes . I know many of us have problems, illness, mental and physical, money worries of many kinds, relationship problems and everything fate wants to throw at us.

So here is today’s lesson coming to us straight from our Sam Ryder. Two songs both with wonderful messages for all of us.

I am a mountain and down in the valley is all that I’ve overcome”

Below is the story of one of the young dancers from Sam’s video like all the others she has a disability and over come it.

The video is up lifting as are the lyrics so do have a look at them if you can’t make them out.

Rough seas might pull me under and
Dark clouds might dim my days
But there’s always bright tomorrows when
I close my eyes and say
“Remember how you’ve made it through the fire
Remember how you’ve come so far
An unstoppable force of nature
Yeah, that’s what you are”

[Pre-Chorus]
I know all that I have lost
Has given me the purpose of
Conquering my pain through love
I sing this hymn to rise above

[Chorus]
I am a mountain
And down in the valley below
Is all that I’ve overcome
All that I’ve overcome, woah
I am a mountain
And down in the valley below
Is all that I’ve overcome
All that I’ve oh-oh-overcome-ome
Oh-oh-overcome-ome
I’m a fighter, it’s like I was born to be one

[Verse 2]
Whatever life may throw, I’ll pass the test
Whatever fate might dream upon me next
I’ll stand with my head to the sky
Unshaken by thunder and winds and the tide

[Pre-Chorus]
I know all that I have lost
Has given me the purpose of
Conquering my pain through love
I sing this hymn to rise above

[Chorus]
I am a mountain (Ah, yeah)
And down in the valley below
Is all that I’ve overcome
All that I’ve overcome, woah
I am a mountain (I am a mountain)
And down in the valley below
Is all that I’ve overcome
All that I’ve oh-oh-overcome-ome (Alright)
Oh-oh-overcome
Oah

[Chorus]
I am a mountain (Hey)
And down in the valley below
Is all that I’ve overcome
All that I’ve overcome, woah
I am a mountain
And down in the valley below
Is all that I’ve overcome
(It’s all that I’ve, all that I’ve, all that I’ve, all that I’ve overcome)
All that I’ve oh-oh-overcome-ome (Yeah)
Oh-oh-overcome-ome (It’s all that I’ve overcome)
Oh-oh-overcome-ome (It’s all that I’ve overcome)
Oh-oh-overcome-ome
I’m a fighter, it’s like I was born to be one

Lyric Genius written and co-produced by Ryder along with Jimbo Barry and Lewis Allen. 

What the second song is about in Sam’s own words .

β€œThis is a song for the hope seekers & the faith keepers. The ones who foster the dream and keep its fire burning regardless of the knock backs, the almosts, the falls & the failures.”

Fought & Lost”
(feat. Brian May)

Congratulations on your jubilation
Our hearts are breaking underneath all the applause
This devastation is of our own making
But we’ve never tasted this much bitterness before

And everybody falls
But some of us are born to fight, and fight, and fight some more

So, we will see you here
Same time, same place, next year
And you may win this battle but you’ll never win the war
Better to have fought and lost than never fought at all

Go take a bow
Your audience is waiting
We’ll take the shadows since the limelight isn’t ours
We wanted it so bad
Gave it all we had
Oh, but wanting, it doesn’t always make it yours

This time was ours to lose
But fortune favours those who ride the storm and make it through

So, we will see you here
Same time, same place, next year
And you can take this battle ’cause we’re gonna win the war
Better to have fought and lost than never fought at all

So, here on the same ground
When the tables have turned around
Oh, and your tears fall as your world is crashing down
I hope, when you see me
You remember that feeling
Oh, ’cause we’ve both seen the world from both sides now

And everybody falls
And life will tear you down to show you what’s worth fighting for

Oh, we will see you here
Same time, same place, next year
And you may win this battle but you’ll never win the war
Better to have fought and lost than never fought at all
Better to have fought and lost than never fought at all

Ato Z Lyrics

Female, wife, full time mother and Grandmother. I am not as happy go lucky as I used to be but I am still bubbling along on simmer! I have three handsome sons all grown and flown.The youngest married with a beautiful wife and two sons of his own. Eleven years ago I was working, running a home, driving and socializing then bang in a split second all that was gone. I had an accident at home. I broke my back, not for the first time, I had broken it 10 years previously as well. Unfortunately this time I had broken it really badly and it was truly messed up so I had to have two operations. I was told before each operation that the outcome could mean I spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair. Still as some guy once wrote "I am still standing " yes "better than I ever was " not quite but with the help of a walking stick and as long as I do not stand or sit in one position for too long, I am still standing! Update I no longer use the walking stick . I had lots of friends before the accident but when things like this happen, you loose most of them. Their lives move on and mine stood still and so they left me behind ...I know that is just the way life is but it hurt and always will. Then I looked around and saw those who were still there for me, these friends are the roses in my garden they need to be tended well. They are the diamonds in the dust, I will of been married 50yrs plus this year . Pain and boredom are my enemies now, I have to find different ways to approach life, use my pain befriend it almost...yer right , well that is what they tell me at the pain clinic ROFLMAO ...... if only I could! I have found an outlet for my fears, frustrations and night terrors . I have started writing poetry if that name can be applied to my writing. I hope I do not come over as a moaning winger. I hope I am past all that. I also hope that you might see how the poetry is moving from very dark through the grey and hopefully in to light ?? I need to update this a little here. I have worked very hard over the years since my accident, I go to the gym regularly, I have a Pilates class and a core class once a week . The guys at the gym and my Pilates teacher cajoled, teased, bullied and encouraged me to abandon my walking stick! :) My back is no longer straight it is C shaped because of the injury and I have lost two and a half inches in height but my Pilates and Core teachers have helped me to stand up as straight and as strongly as possible. Pain and depression are still hanging on my arm but I have weapons to use against them and if I say so myself I cope well. I have made lots of new friends, real diamonds. I am also very grateful for all the support and help I have encountered here on Wordpress. Hugs and welcome to everyone who visits.

    1. I hope you enjoyed, this guy is just so perfect, singer, songwriter, all round musician , humble , joyous and a really nice guy….. I like him…could you guess!

  1. Before even getting to the songs I was 100% certain it would be Sam Ryder. I enjoyed the second song and agree with Di the strains of Who Wants to Live Forever peep in. He actually sounds a lot like Freddie Mercury in this one. Brian May’s guitar is unmistakable.

    1. Yes indeed, he’s so good Brian May and Roger Taylor have both worked with him and he’s even sung on stage with them in their show πŸ’œπŸ’œ

      1. He’s not my favourite but I do love this particular song. Oh, how nice! That must be really good! 🧑🧑

      2. I guess he’s Marmite, I absolutely love him … But I know he’s not everyone’s cup of tea.
        Queen are one of his heroes so I guess it’s not surprising that you can detect their style in his music πŸ’œ

      3. I am on the fence with high-voiced men – unless they have a large range (like Freddie) and I’m not into anything overly “preachy”.
        Oh, there was definitely a nod to Queen in this song! 🧑

      4. He’s not preachy but he is such a lovely guy so friendly. Stop me now!! And I am not getting paid , like Imogen Heap when I like something I love it πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ˜Œ

      5. No, no. He is not preachy. Wrong choice of words. Between these two, you are their most ardent fan!!

      6. Hahaha! I’ve taken the decision to only read one or two of my “multi-poster” friends per day. I can’t keep up with y’all!
