Day 76: Anyway

American Idol isn’t just some show that searches for the next big thing.  It isn’t just a singing competition.  It also shows us and reminds us of amazing (and sometimes not-so-amazing) songs.

As part of the McLaina movement, I decided to choose a song originally sung by Martina McBride.  I first heard this song from Martina McBride in Idol a few years back and I was reminded of this song by Lauren Alaina when she sang it last week–a song that pushed her through to the Top 3.  The title of this song is, of course, Anyway.

I love this song and I think I understand why Lauren chose it.  It’s really an inspirational song that’s all about moving past the bad things and the haters that will, without a doubt, try to knock you down on your feet.  But no matter how hard thing end up being, no matter what happens, what they say about you, no matter how much hurt you may end up feeling…you must always do whatever you dream of doing–whatever you want to do–anyway.

It’s a beautiful song with a beautiful message and it fits Lauren perfectly.

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

You can spend your whole life buildin’
Something from nothin’
One storm can come and blow it all away
Build it anyway

You can chase a dream
That seems so out of reach
And you know it might not ever come your way
Dream it anyway

God is great
But sometimes life ain’t good
And when I pray
It doesn’t always turn out like I think it should
But I do it anyway
I do it anyway

This world’s gone crazy
It’s hard to believe
That tomorrow will be better than today
Believe it anyway

You can love someone with all your heart
For all the right reasons
In a moment they can choose to walk away
Love ’em anyway

God is great
But sometimes life ain’t good
And when I pray
It doesn’t always turn out like I think it should
But I do it anyway
Yeah – I do it anyway

You can pour your soul out singing
A song you believe in
That tomorrow they’ll forget you ever sang
Sing it anyway
Yea, sing it anyway
Yeah, yeah!

I sing
I dream
I love
anyway
