“Hey yeah, welcome to the real world. Nobody told you it was gunna be hard. You said hey yeah I can’t believe it. I barely started now I’m falling apart, and it’s hard. Staring at the crossroads. But having all the answers, never helped me out, no.” (Rob Thomas, “Real World ’09”) “So cradle your head in your hands, and breathe, just breathe.” (Anna Nalick, “Breathe”) “That’s why I get it in till the sunrise, going 90 in a 65, screamin “Ah!” Hey, I’m so paid.” (Akon, “So Paid”)

“Get caught in the race of this crazy life. Trying to be everything, can make you lose your mind. I just want to go back in time.” (Lady Antebellum, “American Honey”) “Glory days well they’ll pass you by, Glory days in the wink of a young girl’s eye, Glory days, glory days.” (Bruce Springsteen, “Glory Days”) “Who cares if you disagree? You are not me, who made you king of anything? So you dare tell me who to be? Who died and made you king of anything?” (Sara Bareilles, “King of Anything”)

“Have you heard of the One who can calm the raging seas, give sight to the blind, pull the lame up to their feet. With a love so strong he’ll never let you go oh you’re not alone, You will be safe in HIS arms. (Phil Whickham, “Safe”) “Lost for words, so lost in love. Sweetly broken, wholly surrendered.” (Jeremy Riddle, “Sweetly Broken”) “I done been through the pain and the sorrow, the struggle is nothing but love (nothing but love) I’m a soldier, a rider, a ghetto survivor and all the above” (Maino, “All the Above”).

“All my life I’ve tried to make everybody happy, while I just hurt and hide. Waiting for someone to tell me it’s my turn to decide” (Sara Bareilles, “King of Anything”) “Who cares, you’re only beautiful once in a lifetime, and baby now is your time to be beautiful.” (Justin McRoberts, “Beautiful Once”) “Let go of your heart, let go of your head, and feel it now.” (David Gray, “Babylon”) “I’m not my own – I’ve been carried by You All my life. And everything rides on hope now, everything rides on faith somehow. When the world has broken me down, Your love sets me free.” (Addison Road, “Hope Now”) “Hakuna Matata.” (The Lion King, “Hakuna Matata”)
