Just wondering if anyone constantly has a theme song to their lives?

At the moment mine would be "Running Back" by Jessica Mauboy.

My ex, who treated me terribly and I still love with all my heart is back in my life sort of. He is already up to his same games, namely "I want you when I want you" game.

so just wondering if anyone else is constantly wonderng what song sums up their lives?

I'd have to go with Chumbawumba - "I get knocked down, but I get up again".

This year so far has been one long list of things that have gone wrong - everything of value that can break has broken and my DH lost his job last week, although it has also been a fantastic year too as I got married to my DH in Jan and am lovely every min of being married to him!

ETA - has anyone seen the Simpsons episode where he is singing this song? Although his version was 'I get knocked down, and I get knocked down again, but you're never gonna keep me down' AND repeat! V funny!

Waiting for the Sun - Powderfinger

This will be an uncertain time for us my love
I can hear the echo of your voice in my head
Singing my love

I can see your face there in my hands my love
I have been blessed by your grace and care my love
Singing my love

Theres a place for us sitting here waiting for the sun
And it calls me back into the safe arms that I know

For every step you're further away from me my love
I grow more unsteady on my feet my love
Singing my love

Now were waiting for the sun

I'm pregnant so this is how I feel about our baby. wub.gif

Bic Runga - "Precious Thing"

When all the star gazes bloom
And throw their stars around the room
I was waiting for the day
For you to love me

When all the elements conspire
With shiny things that catch the eye
I was waiting for the day
For you to love me

Precious precious thing
You are the thought that makes me sing
Wanna leave all my possessions
It's a rare and precious precious thing

When all the elements conspire
With shiny things that catch the eye
I was waiting for the day
For you to love me

Well at this point in time I cant say there is one that really sums up my life!!! But one I like is

If today was your last day - Nickleback

My best friend gave me
The best advice
He said each day's a gift
And not a given right
Leave no stone unturned
Leave your fears behind
And try to take
The path less traveled by
That first step you take
Is the longest stride

If today was your last day
And tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have?
If today was your last day
If today was your last day

Against the grain
Should be a way of life
What's worth the prize
Is always worth the fight
Every second counts
'cause there's no second try,
So live like you'll
Never live it twice
Don't take the free ride
In your own life

If today was your last day
And tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have?
[ Nickelback Lyrics are found on www.songlyrics.com ]
Would you call old friends you never see?
Reminisce of memories
Would you forgive your enemies?
Would you find that one you're dreamin' of
Swear up and down to God above
That you finally fall in love
If today was your last day

If today was your last day...
Would you make your mark
By mending a broken heart?
You know it's never too late
To shoot for the stars,
Regardless of who you are
So do whatever it takes
'cause you can't rewind
A moment in this life
Let nothin' stand in your way
'cause the hands of time
Are never on your side

If today was your last day
And tomorrow was too late,
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?

Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have?
Would you call old friends you never see?
Reminisce of memories
Would you forgive your enemies?
Would you find that one you're dreamin' of
Swear up and down to God above
That you finally fall in love
If today was your last day

I love this song, I heard it for the first time when I was told I was made redundant and it immediately picked me up.

I have to say mine is also Chumbawumba - "I get knocked down, but I get up again".

It has been for a number of years. A friend at work played this song for me a few years back and he told me that no matter how hard life gets i still keep going and he thinks this song suits me.

My life is beautiful at the moment. With an amazing husband and a sweet bub on the way. I feel like this:

"Lullaby"

They didn't have you where I come from
Never knew the best was yet to come
Life began when I saw your face
And I hear your laugh like a serenade

How long do you want to be loved
Is forever enough, is forever enough
How long do you want to be loved
Is forever enough
Cause I'm never, never giving you up

I slip in bed when you're asleep
To hold you close and feel your breath on me
Tomorrow there'll be so much to do
So tonight I'll drift in a dream with you

How long do you want to be loved
Is forever enough, is forever enough
How long do you want to be loved
Is forever enough
Cause I'm never, never giving you up

As you wander through this troubled world
In search of all things beautiful
You can close your eyes when you're miles away
And hear my voice like a serenade

How long do you want to be loved
Is forever enough, is forever enough
How long do you want to be loved
Is forever enough
Cause I'm never, never giving you up

How long do you want to be loved
Is forever enough, is forever enough
How long do you want to be loved
Is forever enough
Cause I'm never, never giving you up
Is forever enough
Cause I'm never, never giving you up

I would say my theme is still Eden's birth song:



A New Day Has Come - Celine Dion



A new day has...come

I was waiting for so long
For a miracle to come
Everyone told me to be strong
Hold on and don't shed a tear

Through the darkness and good times
I knew I'd make it through
And the world thought I had it all
But I was waiting for you

Hush, love

I see a light in the sky
Oh, it's almost blinding me
I can't believe
I've been touched by an angel with love
Let the rain come down and wash away my tears
Let it fill my soul and drown my fears
Let it shatter the walls for a new, new sun
A new day has...come

Where it was dark now there's light
Where there was pain now there's joy
Where there was weakness, I found my strength
All in the eyes of a boy

Hush, love

I see a light in the sky
Oh, it's almost blinding me
I can't believe
I've been touched by an angel with love
Let the rain come down and wash away my tears
Let it fill my soul and drown my fears
Let it shatter the walls for a new, new sun
A new day has...come



Along side that, my personal anthem at the moment would have to be Pinks "Sober" laugh.gif ! I gave up drinking 18 months ago for many reasons. One being it is forbidden in my faith, and I want to be a better representative of my faith than I have been in the past. But giving it up turned out to be a lot harder than I expected! Trying to find who I am as a non-drinker with no crutch to numb myself with, and dealing with other peoples reactions to me not drinking anymore is an ongoing challenge! So I like this song, it sums up my general feelings and is therapeutic to sing at the top of my lungs!

The lyrics are so beautiful and meaningful.

I hear you on the sober song. Since being pregnant I have given up drinking (obviously) and I did not realise how big of a role alcohol played in my life. I am looking for different things to do, other than sit at the pub. I don't miss alcohol as such, more the social interaction it brings. Then I remind myself once the baby is here I will have a whole new social outlet.
