Day 73: Other Side of Down

Yes, we are still rocking it out with American Idol tunes.  Following up on yesterday’s post, and after hearing the awesome, awesome performance by Lauren, James and Scotty, I decided to go with a song by runner-up, David Archuleta.

Today’s song is entitled The Other Side of Down and this song, compared to yesterday’s song, is a little bit of the “feel good” nature.

It sort of tells you not to give up when the going gets tough.  That you have to look past what had happened, whatever hardship you have faced or are currently facing, and just go for it.

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

Down, Down, Down, Down, Down, Down, (Down, Down)

Here I am with all these questions hanging from my ceiling low
One by one they all keep telling me I told you so
Everywhere I turn I see red lights flashing over my head
Oh no, oh no, oh no
Mm-mm
In a whirl-wind spinning, yeah somehow it knocked me off my feet
But I know better than to let it get the best of me,
I could give up, I could stay stuck, I could move on

So I put one foot front of the other,
No, no, no, nothing’s gonna break my stride,
I keep climbing, gonna keep fighting until I make it to the other side of down-own
Down-own, Down-whoa-oh-ow-own

(Down, Down, Down-ah-own)

In the sky, I’m standing under all I see is endless rain
I think I spot a silver lining hiding in the gray
I might get tossed around, but I’m always bouncing back
Oh, oh, oh
I could give up, I could stay stuck, or I could move on,

So I put one foot front of the other,
No, no, no, nothing’s gonna break my stride,
I keep climbing, gonna keep fighting until I make it to the other side of down-own

Down-own, Down-whoa-ah-ow-own
Down-own, Down-own, Down-whoa-ah-ow-own

On the other side of down
It keeps calling me
Where I wanna be
On the other side of down
It keeps calling me
Where I wanna be

Where I wanna be

Ohhh, I put one foot front of the other,
No, no, no, nothing’s gonna break my stride,
I keep climbing, gonna keep fighting until I make it to the other side of down-own
Down-own, Down-whoa-ah-ow-own
Down-own, Down-own, Down-whoa-ah-ow-own

Ohh, Down, Down
Whoa, Whoa
Ohh, Down, Down
The other side of down, down
Other side of down-ah-uh-own
Ohh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

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.
