Song Lyric Sunday 9/18/16 – Live Life

So this week’s prompt for Song Lyric Sunday is a song you recently heard in concert or would like to hear in concert. Well, I am totally not a concert person at all so I’m afraid I don’t have anything really to this effect, but I’m going to take a very loose interpretation of the prompt (as I always do, but this even looser) and go from there.

For the first time this season, I am totally tuning in to Dancing With The Stars. While I normally would not, a person I admire very much is doing the competition this year and I am tuning in solely to watch and root for him. His name is James Hinchcliffe and he is a race car driver in the Verizon IndyCar Series. He’s had a bit of a rough season this year, but still I would say is a victory for him to even be racing this season because last year he had a major crash during practice for the 2015 Indianapolis 500 that in all honesty should have killed him. He was impaled through his leg, had to have surgery, 14 pints of blood and lots of physical therapy. The fact that he’s even racing this year is a miracle, and to be doing DWTS is just a total inspirational story.

So for this prompt I am using the song Hinch and his professional partner Sharna Burgess danced to in the season premiere of DWTS and I am going to say that is the song I recently heard live (yeah, I know they danced to the recording but whatever). The song is called “Live Life” by Zayde Wolf. I didn’t pay much attention to the song as I was watching their dance routine (which earned the highest judges’ scores of the night I should say!) so I looked up the song after the fact and found it to be a very beautiful and inspirational song and such an appropriate song choice for their first dance given what Hinch has been through in the last year. The fact he is doing this makes me admire him more, not only as an IndyCar driver but as a human being.

Here you go. Have a tissue handy if you’re the emotional type.

Sometimes I think that I’m a dreamer
The one that’s standing all alone
Sometimes it feels like it’s forever
Since I’ve truly felt at home

What am I gonna do?
What am I gonna do to feel like freedom’s mine?
What am I gonna do?
What am I gonna do to feel like freedom’s mine?

Live life like I never have
Live life through the good and bad
Live life like I never have
Live life through the good and bad
I’m gonna live life

Some nights I stay up staring at the stars
Wondering how far it goes
I know this life is all I have
Well that’s what I’ve been told

What am I gonna do?
What am I gonna do?
Will you go where I go?
The time is now not when
I’m reaching for your hand
Will you go where I go?

Live life like I never have
Live life through the good and bad
Live life like I never have
Live life through the good and bad
I’m gonna live life

Like it’s the only one (like it’s the only one we have)
Like it’s the only one (like it’s the only one we have)

Live life like I never have
Live life through the good and bad
Live life like I never have
Live life through the good and bad
Yeah I’m gonna live life

Live life like I never have
Live life through the good and bad
Yeah I’m gonna live life

Live life like I never have
Live life through the good and bad

As an added clip, here is Hinch and Sharna’s dance routine. In the beginning you can see the accident than nearly claimed Hinch’s life and hear his thoughts about it. Truly an inspirational story.

Hope you all enjoyed and rest assured I will continue participating in these. They’re fun and it’s great to be introduced to new music.

  1. I used to watch DWTS, but I tend to watch those things for the talent, but this is more about popularity, and that drove me nuts actually.

    I love hearing inspirational stories like this, though. It always amazes me how people can rise to the challenge after an accident like that.

    I also really loved the song!! Great lyrics! Great song! Thanks so much for sharing!
