Music Monday: Demons

When I first heard this song this song last week I was in the car with my daughters. I immediately felt the tears began to well up in my eyes. ¬†They see me cry often however I didn’t not want them to think of me that way at school. I quickly turned the station.

During my Friday morning run it came up on my playlist. I cried. I ran and I cried. I pushed harder and cried harder. I screamed. I ran. I screamed more and ran harder. God it felt good.

We are not alone. So many songs come from the pain, depression, anger, and loss of others. Yet we listen to these songs for their beat but not the words that are there to lift us and reassure us that we are not alone. Music therapy is a real therapy that we can practice on our own. Take a moment today to stop and listen to the words. You will find a part of you that you may not know is there or even a memory that brings you a smile. We just have to stop listen to the words and realize we are not alone.

Demons

They say don’t let them in.
Close your eyes and clear your thoughts again.
When I’m all alone, they show up on their own.

Cause inner demons fight their battles with fire.
Inner demons don’t play by the rules.
They say just push them down, just fight them harder.
Why would you give up on it so soon?
So angels, angels please just keep on fighting.
Angels don’t give up on me today.
The demons they are there; they keep on fighting.
Cause inner demons just wont go away.
So angels please, hear my prayer.
Life is pain, lifes not fair.
So angels please; please stay here.
Take the pain; take the fear.

They say it wont be hard; they cant see the battles in my heart
But when I turn away
The demons seem to stay
Cause inner demons don’t play well with angels.
They cheat and lie and steal and break and bruise.
Angels please protect me from these rebels.
This is a battle I don’t want to lose.
So angels, angels please just keep on fighting.
Angels don’t give up on me today.
Cause the demons they are there; they keep on fighting.
Cause Inner demons just wont go away.

Angels, angels please keep on fighting. Keep on fighting.
Angels don’t give up on me today.
Cause the demons; they are there.
They keep on fighting.
Inner demons just wont go away.

So angels please, hear my prayer.
Life is pain; lifes not fair.
So angels please; please stay here.
Take the pain; take the fear.

Here’s your challenge today. Take a moment today to stop and listen to the words of a song that draws you in. You will find a part of you that you may not know is there or even a memory that brings you a smile. We just have to stop listen to the words and realize we are not alone.

Warmly,
