Day 20: There’s A Place For Us

Okay, so this came out a bit late in the day.  I have a very good explanation for that.  First and foremost, my family and I went to Manila; and second, my internet connection is being an uncooperative and annoying.  So, yeah…this got delayed.

Anyways, I would never have found out about this song I have for today if it weren’t for the movie: The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader and if I wasn’t much of a Carrie Underwood fan.  But I am.  A Carrie Underwood fan, I mean.

This song, There’s a Place For Us, is an exclusive iTunes-only song that was released in relation to the aforementioned movie.  It isn’t part of the Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader Original Soundtrack (I should know, I have that soundtrack and all it contained were the scores used in the movie, unlike the previous Narnian Soundtracks that have the credit songs on them).  So, if you would want to get your hands on this song legally, you can only do so via iTunes.

Anyways, this is a very beautiful song (as always) from Carrie Underwood, and I’m not just talking about the way she sang the song, I am also talking about the lyrics, which you can read below:

There’s a place out there for us,
more than just a prayer or anything you’ve ever dreamed of.
So when you feel like giving up cause you don’t fit in down here,
fear is crashing in, close your eyes and take my hand.

We can be the kings and queens of anything if we believe.
It’s written in the stars that shine above,
a world where you and I belong, where faith and love will keep us strong,
exactly who we are is just enough
there’s a place for us, there’s a place for us.

When the water meets the sky,
where your heart is free and hope comes back to life,
when these broken hands are whole again,
we’ll will find what we’ve been waiting for,
we were made for so much more

We can be the kings and queens of anything if we believe.
It’s written in the stars that shine above,
a world where you and I belong, where faith and love will keep us strong,
exactly who we are is just enough,
there’s a place for us, there’s a place for us

So hold on, now hold on,
there’s a place for us

We can be the kings and queens of anything if we believe.
It’s written in the stars that shine above,
a world where you and I belong, where faith and love will keep us strong,
exactly who we are is just enough, exactly who we are is just enough,
there’s a place for us.

Many of us feel like we don’t belong.  That we were meant to be so much more, and we are.  It’s just that sometimes we forget and sometimes we tend to view things differently.  We tend to think of what we think is best rather than what God knows is best for us.  I know some people are rolling their eyes at me for saying that but, well…I guess to each his/her own.

You know what part of the lyrics I like best?  It’s this part: Exactly who we are is just enough.

It speaks of so much, that one line.

People asks us to change.  To be someone whom we are not just to meet with their expectations and their demands.  But the thing is, these people aren’t the ones we should be trying to impress.  They are not the ones whom we should be seeking approval from.  There is only one “person” we should be seeking approval from and that is God.  Not those around us who are trying to turn us into someone we are not.

Don’t try to be someone whom you’re not for the sake of people you don’t know and people who don’t really understand you.  The only time you should change is when you are sinking into thinking that you aren’t worthy of anything and when you’re feeling down on yourself.  The only time you should change is when you know that you are not the person you are meant to be and when you find your heart being clouded and distorted by sin.

What’s more, this song tells us that there is a place for everyone.  Even for those who doesn’t seem to fit in anywhere.  There is a place for us.

Anyways, below is a different video from above.  This one is the trailer from the movie that features the song (since the video we have above is just the song and not much of an ‘Official’ music video).

Anyways, that’s all for now.  Until the next post, dream on; fly on!

There is nothing more that I enjoy doing than reading books and writing. I'm kind of a nerd like that, XD. I have been writing for 7 years and am the author of the YA novel "Winged: The Awakening" and "Winged: The Unraveling". Also, a YouTuber dealing with video games and gaming.
