Music: Day 19 #100PositiveDays

“To be humble, to be kind.
It is the giving of the peace in your mind.
To a stranger, To a friend
To give in such a way that has no end.

We are Love
We are One
We are how we treat each other when the day is done.
We are Peace
We are War
We are how we treat each other and Nothing More

To be bold, to be brave.
It is the thinking that the heart can still be saved
And the darkness can come quick
The Dangers in the Anger and the hanging on to it.

We are Love
We are One
We are how we treat each other when the day is done.
We are Peace
We are War
We are how we treat each other and Nothing More

Tell me what it is that you see
A world that’s filled with endless possibilities?
Heroes don’t look they used to, they look like you do.

We are Love
We are One
We are how we treat each other when the day is done.
We are Peace
We are War
We are how we treat each other and Nothing More”

-The Alternate Routes: “Nothing More”

I discovered this song about a month ago and was inspired immediately. We are how we treat each other and nothing moreNothing more. Truly, the only thing that matters is how we treat each other. It’s all too easy to get caught up in the stresses of the day; honking at the car in front of us for not going when the light turns green, hurriedly walking past someone almost knocking them over, letting the door close behind us without waiting for the next person. We let words hurt us and we let that impact how we speak to others. I vouch to try and do better.

The song lyrics above were inspired by a nonprofit that formed out of the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary in December 2012, which makes it all the more meaningful. Click to watch the music video.

Music

Lyrics change the world.
They twist minds, provoking thought and discussion;
the words, like poetry, such rhythm and purpose.

The music just gets it.
When no one understands, or sees who you are,
headphones in, turn them off, forget it, they’re gone.

Just shut the world out:
Walking to the beat of your own drum,
no one can touch you, no one can hurt you.

Music has a way of taking over.
Thoughts, feelings, worries, and stresses,
all can fade away, get lost, no more noises.

Like a fairytale land,
filling your head with magical moments,
sending chills down your spine, how personal, romantic.
