Day 31: It Stops Today

“Break free.”  I think that’s what this song’s message is.

For the thirty-first day of the hundred-day music challenge, I decided to go with a Colbie Caillat song entitled “It Stops Today“.

It’s a pretty neat song with a catchy tune and great lyrics.

For me, this song speaks about courage and the belief in oneself.  I like to say that courage is the magic that turns dreams into reality, and as long as we have courage, we can keep on moving forward and dream big dreams.  And in the end, we will reach those dreams.

It is as Walt Disney said: “Keep moving forward!”–a quotation that was later adapted on the Meet the Robinsons film adaptation.

The song tells us to stop running from our fears, our worries and just go for it, plunge in and let go.  As a famous quotation says: “Reach for the moon.  Even if you miss, you will still land among the stars.”

It is a good advise to those who will step beyond the four rooms of their classrooms, to the newly graduates who will be seeing the world, no longer as students, but as equal members of society.

Below are the lyrics to this song.  Until the next post, dream on; fly on!

No, no, I, I, I, I, I don’t wanna break when I speak
I don’t wanna shake while I’m standing
I don’t wanna crawl into another hole
I don’t know what I’m hiding for

No, I, I, I, I, I don’t wanna fall when I stand
I don’t wanna have to hold your hand
I just wanna be the girl I use to be
When I was me and worry free
I know these burdens are my own

But I can’t keep on running
No, I just can’t keep on running away from here
I know that the only way to beat it is to fight my every fear

I’m not gonna make it ’til I turn around and face it alone
I know that I can’t keep on running
No, I just can’t keep on running away so it stops today

So here I am, I’m taking my first step
Thought I was losing balance but I caught myself
I kinda like the challenge, no I don’t need help
I’m gonna make it past the very start
It’s always been the hardest part

But I, I, I, I, I’m gonna stay in control
I must admit this crutch is getting old
I am gonna throw it right out of my hand
I’m finally here, I understand
I know I’ll get there on my own

So I can’t keep on running
No, I just can’t keep on running away from here
I know that the only way to beat it is to fight my every fear

I’m not gonna make it ’til I turn around and face it alone
I know that I can’t keep on running
No, I just can’t keep on running away so it stops today

You can hide from all the pain but it will find you anyway
Yes I know, now I know

That I can’t keep on running
No, I just can’t keep on running away from here
I know that the only way to beat it is to fight my every fear

I’m not gonna make it ’til I turn around and face it alone
I know that I can’t keep on running
No, I just can’t keep on running away so it stops today

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.
