A new theme song?

I know that "Unwritten" by Natasha Beddingfield is very much a writers theme song. In fact I have often wondered if who ever wrote the song had any idea the impact it has on those of us who are writers.

However my daughter pointed out this song and I believe, at least for me, the lyrics have more impact on me than "Unwritten".


The Climb by Miley Cyrus

I can almost see it.
That dream I'm dreaming, but
There's a voice inside my head saying
You'll never reach it
Every step I'm takin'
Every move I make
Feels lost with no direction,
My faith is shakin'
But I gotta keep tryin'
Gotta keep my head held high

There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose
Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waitin' on the other side
It's the climb

The struggles I'm facing
The chances I'm taking
Sometimes might knock me down, but
No I'm not breaking
I may not know it, but
These are the moments that
I'm gonna remember most
I've just gotta keep goin', and
I gotta be strong
Just keep pushing on, but

There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose
Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waitin' on the other side
It's the climb

There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose
Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waitin' on the other side
It's the climb

Keep on movin'
Keep climbin'
Keep faith baby
It's all about, it's all about
The climb
Keep the faith, keep your faith, woah

Michelle,

I love this song. You should look the video up on you tube and post it with the lyrics. Anyway...I think you're right. It is a great song for writers, or anyone that has a goal worth reaching.

Hugs

I am glad that you like as much as I do mom. I fell in love with it while we were watching our slideshow.

Listen to it and know that you can do anything. As Rosalyn says, Moses parted the Red Sea, nothing is impossible.

I don't necessarily like the music. but I love the lyrics. My tastes tend to run a bit harder than Miley Cyrus. No offence Miley.
