From her 4th studio album released last year, Beyonce once again proved that she had not left her soulful R&B roots behind with this emotionally charged ballad. “I Was Here” talks about her hopes of making a mark and a difference to the world once she has gone. The meaning behind this song is one we can take and attach to our own lives, using everyday as an opportunity to actively reach for our dreams to leave our own mark and legacy and to make a difference even if it’s in one person’s life.
I was here I lived, I loved I was here I did, I’ve done everything that I wanted And it was more than I thought it would be I will leave my mark so everyone will know I was here
I want to say I lived each day, until I died And know that I meant something in, somebody’s life The hearts I have touched, will be the proof that I lived That I made a difference, and this world will see
No one else can feel it for you Only you can let it in No one else, no one else Can speak the words on your lips Drench yourself in words unspoken Live your life with arms wide open Today is where your book begins The rest is still unwritten
“Go Get It” debuted back in Feb. of this year. The sister duo also featured the song on their hit reality show on We tv! As the song states, ‘you can’t make things happen unless you get out there and get it!- It’s your time!” “..You were made to live a good life and that’s what I believe, So hit the floor say a prayer start working you got to do something, It’s alright to crawl before you walk it’s alright to walk before you run, But if you wanna get what you never got gotta do something that you never done..” Post by: Kandice Lawson
Off Elle Varner’s mixtape, Conversational Lush. We as women all have those days when things don’t fit right, and that one strand of hair just will not lay down! The song speaks about embracing your everyday flaws for what they are, once you do that you could be so fly!!!
“So basically all I need Is to be everything but me, Colored contacts, Liposuction, And breast implants, Somehow that don’t make much sense, I must be out of my head, If I think, that I am governed by material things. So I decided I’m, The definition of fly, And if you want to know why, I know what money can’t buy, Don’t go believing the hype, There’s no runway in the sky, And no way you could be fly, Not if it costs you a dime.”
I smile, even though I hurt see I smile, I know God is working so I smile, Even though I’ve been here for a while (what you do?) I smile, smile.. it’s so hard to look up when you’ve been down. Sure would hate to see you give up now You look so much better when you smile, so smile.
Who says, who says you’re not perfect? Who says you’re not worth it? Who says you’re the only one that’s hurtin’? Trust me, that’s the price of beauty Who says you’re not pretty? Who says you’re not beautiful? Who says?
Who says you’re not star potential? Who says you’re not presidential? Who says you can’t be in movies? Listen to me, listen to me Who says you don’t pass the test? Who says you can’t be the best? Who said, who said? Won’t you tell me who said that? Yeah, who said?
