Oh so, your wounds they show.
I know you have never felt so alone.
But hold on, head up, be strong.
Oh hold on, hold on until you hear them come.
Here they come, oh.
Take an angel by the wings.
Beg her now for anything.
Beg her now for one more day.
Take an angel by the wings
Time to tell her everything.
Ask her for the strength to stay.
Do you have a siren song? A song that speaks to your soul. One you listen to for certain seasons and moods.
I think finding siren songs are incredibly powerful. There are times in my life when I look back and a certain song encompasses that particular time in my life. When I listen to it, I’m immediately drawn back to that place.
Right now, I’ve got Angel by the Wings, by Sia, on repeat. Every time I hear it, I feel seen. I feel heard. I feel understood. She’s speaking to my heart. And then with the chorus, she lifts me up to a powerful refrain, You Can Do Anything. Again and again, I hear those words echo in my mind.
As I listen to it, the words reach into my soul and find their home there. And we all know how songs get stuck in your head, which can sometimes be a negative thing if you don’t like the words or message. In this case though, what gets lodged in my head and heart is, “You can do anything, anything. You can do anything.”
Funny enough, I’ve listened to it a hundred times and always thought the first two words were “Old soul” not “Oh so.” When I looked up the lyrics, I found out I’d been hearing it different. We hear what we need to hear.
So what’s your siren song? Do you have a song for this time in your life that uplifts and encourages you? I’d love to hear from you and maybe even put together a playlist of all our uplifting songs to share with you!
