Music Helps to Heal

I’ve found music speaks to me and my soul like nothing else can sometimes and so I was looking for songs about healing as mentioned in the previous post and found quite a few songs.

The two songs that stuck out to me and touched me most that I love and want to adapt as my motto now are the one that I mentioned in the previous post of Trouble by Lizz Wright and this one which is Imagine Me by Kirk Franklin.

Here are the lyrics to Kirk Franklin’s Imagine Me and I’m going to post the music video to his song in the next post here.

These songs speak to me like nothing has spoken to me in a long time and they are what I want and what I’m working for even more now than I was before because I have to stop being so hard on myself for my past  – it’s not helping anything.

Okay so here’s the lyrics:

KIRK FRANKLIN LYRICS

“Imagine Me”

Imagine me
Loving what I see when the mirror looks at me cause I
I imagine me
In a place of no insecurities
And I’m finally happy cause
I imagine me

Letting go of all of the ones who hurt me
Cause they never did deserve me
Can you imagine me?
Saying no to thoughts that try to control me
Remembering all you told me
Lord, can you imagine me?
Over what my mama said
And healed from what my daddy did
And I wanna live and not read that page again

[Chorus:]
Imagine me, being free, trusting you totally finally I can…
Imagine me
I admit it was hard to see
You being in love with someone like me
But finally I can…
Imagine me

Being strong
And not letting people break me down
You won’t get that joy this time around
Can you imagine me?
In a world (in a world) where nobody has to live afraid
Because of your love fears gone away
Can you imagine me?

[Bridge:]
Letting go of my past
And glad I have another chance
And my heart will dance
‘Cause I don’t have to read that page again

[Chorus x2]

[Vamp:]
Gone, gone, it’s gone, all gone
