Writer's Block: More than words  
Which song lyrics send shivers down your spine and really hit you emotionally?




There are so many, but there are two that really speak to me. One is "I'll Try" by Johnatha Brooke, from the Return to Neverland soundtrack. The movie was meh, but the music is beautiful.


I'LL TRY
LISTEN HERE

I can finally see it.
Now I have to believe:
All those precious stories.
All the world is made of faith,
And trust,
And pixie dust.
So I'll try,
'Cause I finally believe!
I'll try,
'Cause I see where you see!
...
I'll try-
To fly


I have the song in several languages and all of them have beautiful variations on the same theme, but I really love the French version of it. It's performed by Nathalie Fauran.


JE CROIS (I BELIEVE)
LISTEN HERE

Je n’suis plus une enfant
Je peux prendre soin de moi-même
Et pour qu’il reste confiant
Je dois dire à ce que j’aime: "ça va, ça va"

I'm no longer a child
I can take care of myself
And so no one suspects
I have to tell those I love: "I'm fine, I'm fine"

FULL TRANSLATION


Another one that right now I really get is by the aptly named Weepies. Aptly, because the song always makes me tear up.


YOU CAN'T GO BACK NOW
LISTEN HERE

Yesterday, when you were young,
Everything you needed done was done for you.
Now you do it on your own
But you find you're all alone,
What can you do?
...
I can't really say why everybody wishes they were somewhere else
But in the end, the only steps that matter are the ones you take all by yourself

And you and me walk on
Yeah you and me walk on
Cause you can't go back now
