A Favorite Song

I’ve decided to do a music challenge I discovered at MindLovesMisery blog. It’s a 30 day music challenge. I’m not planning to do it in 30 days or in order. I find it’s easier and more fun to just post as I hear a song that fits any of the prompts and create a list under each post showing the prompts I’ve completed.

So, here’s another song for the challenge.  I have many favorite songs, so I decided to choose a song that I’m guessing few people have not heard to share.  I heard this song for the first time in the end credits of the movie The Odd Life of Timothy Green, an unusual Disney movie about a boy born in the garden of a couple that is unable to have children. At the end of the movie, he must return to where he came from. Other events happen after that, but I won’t say anymore for fear I will spoil the movie for anyone that hasn’t seen it. I included the lyrics after the video.  This song is also another song with exceptional lyrics.

Day 3: One of Your Favorite Songs —

This Gift by Glen Hansard

“This Gift”

This gift will last forever
This gift will never let you down
Some things are made from better stuff
This gift is waiting to be found

Your heart’s in wide receiving
Been too long buried in the sand
Some things require leaving
This gift will fall right in your hand
Just try to understand…

If you long enough
And you don’t give up
If you’re strong enough
And you don’t give up
And you…

You’ll be no harbor to the sorrow
Just let it go.

Don’t hang your head in sorrow
Don’t give up just before you win
Don’t wait around for tomorrow
Open up your arms and let it in

This gift will last forever
This gift will never let you down
Some things are made from better stuff
This gift is ready to be found
Just you believe it now

This gift will last forever
This gift will never let you down
Some things are made from better stuff
This gift is ready to be found
Your heart’s in wide receiving
Been too long buried in the sand
Some things require believing
These things just fall right in your hand
Just try to understand

If you long enough
And you don’t give up
If you’re strong enough
And you don’t give up [x2]
