NaBloPoMo Day Three: How You Live (Turn Up The Music)

A few weeks ago I heard this song again and wanted to share it here.  But I was sure I'd already done so a while back.  I went hunting for the entry it was in and I can't find it so either I was wrong about that or it is here but not filed under the obvious category.

It's about the way in which we live - and good ways to do so.  It does make reference to God at one point.  I don't particularly agree with that part of it but it's still a good song.  Overall I love the message it brings and it's one I agree with.

Point of Grace - How You Live (Turn Up The Music) 

Wake up to the sunlight
With your windows open
Don't hold in your anger or leave things unspoken
Wear your red dress
Use your good dishes
Make a big mess and make lots of wishes
Have what you want
But want what you have
And don't spend your life looking back

Turn up the music
Turn it up loud
Take a few chances
Let it all out
You won't regret it
Looking back from where you have been
'Cause it's not who you knew
And it's not what you did
It's how you live

So go to the ballgames
And go to the ballet
And go see your folks more than just on the holidays
Kiss all your children
Dance with your wife
Tell your husband you love him every night
Don't run from the truth
'Cause you can't get away
Just face it and you'll be okay

Oh wherever you are and wherever you've been
Now is the time to begin


So give to the needy
And pray for the grieving
Even when you don't think that you can
'Cause all that you do is bound to come back to you
So think of your fellow men
Make peace with God and make peace with yourself
'Cause in the end there's nobody else

Hi, Emma!

Thanks for checking out my blog, Dreaming in Digital, through NaBloPoMo. I'm enjoying checking out yours.

I've heard of Point of Grace and like the words of this song.

You asked about flash fiction in your comment on my blog. It's a short story of 1000 words or less. If you submit one for publication, most places like them to be between 500 and 750 words. I personally enjoy writing succinctly and find flash fiction to be less overwhelming than something longer. I hope you give it a try. If so, I'd love to read what you've written!

Good luck with NaBloPoMo!
