Tune-In Tuesday

I have always said that music is my passion, my life. When asked the question "What would you do if you could do any job OTHER THAN your current one?" I always say "Something in the music industry. Maybe producing or music engineering, etc." I LOVE music. I love to sing, I love to dance. I LOVE music. Either early this morning or late last night I decided to attempt a meme of my own: Tune-In Tuesday. I'm going to share TWO of my current favorite songs, songs that have recently inspired me, or songs that I just think everyone ought to hear at least once! While I'd love to be able to just add the songs to my account, I have decided to locate the songs on YouTube. If I can find the video that goes with, I will share that. If not, I will find a suitable alternative.

That said, here are my Tune-In Tuesday (Week #1) picks:

1. Rebirthing by Skillet ~ I LOVE Skillet. They are my FAVORITE. I discovered them while in college about 11 years ago, and have been a big fan ever since. So, you'll likely see LOTS of them in here! ;-) This is probably my favorite song of theirs EVER.


I lie here paralytic
Inside this soul
Screaming for you till my throat is numb
I wanna break out
I need a way out
I don’t believe that it’s gotta be this way
The worst is the waiting
In this womb I’m suffocating

Feel your presence filling up my lungs with oxygen
I take you in
I’ve died
Rebirthing now
I wanna live for love wanna live for you and me
Breathe for the first time now
I come alive somehow
Rebirthing now
I Wanna live my life wanna give you everything
Breathe for the first time now
I come alive somehow

I lie here lifeless
In this cocoon
Shedding my skin cause
I’m ready to
I wanna break out
I found a way out
I don’t believe that it’s gotta be this way
The worst is the waiting
In this womb I’m suffocating

Bridge:
Tell me when I’m gonna live again
Tell me when I’m gonna breathe you in
Tell me when I’m gonna feel inside
Tell me when I’m gonna feel alive

Tell me when I’m gonna live again
Tell me when this fear will end
Tell me when I’m gonna feel inside
Tell me when I’ll feel alive

2. Hero by Skillet ~ I told ya, I LOVE Skillet. My kids do, too - they ask specifically for Skillet! This is one that all of us listen to a LOT lately.



I'm just a step away
I'm just a breath away
Losing my faith today
(Falling off the edge today)

I am just a man
Not superhuman
(I'm not superhuman)
Someone save me from the hate

It's just another war
Just another family torn
(Falling from my faith today)
Just a step from the edge
Just another day in the world we live

Chorus:
I need a hero to save me now
I need a hero
(Save me now)
I need a hero to save my life
A hero'll save me
(Just in time)

I gotta fight today
To live another day
Speaking my mind today
(My voice will be heard today)

I've gotta make a stand
But I am just a man
(I'm not superhuman)
My voice will be heard today

It's just another war
Just another family torn
(My voice will be heard today)
It's just another kill
The countdown begins to destroy ourselves

Bridge:
Who's gonna fight for what's right
Who's gonna help us survive

We're in the fight of our lives
(And we're not ready to die)

Who's gonna fight for the weak
Who's gonna make 'em believe
I've got a hero
(I've got a hero)

Living in me

I'm gonna fight for what's right
Today I'm speaking my mind

And if it kills me tonight
(I will be ready to die)

A hero's not afraid to give his life
A hero's gonna save me just in time
