need a song for someone that thinks he doesn't have much in life

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I've a friend, she always go with the flow but now she's you know asking for more, we all have different perspective toward things for example a car is essential or basic for some but it's mean nothing to others, some can live without a partner or a companion some can't live without someone, it's all depends on the person.

So she's been looking for things now, like a car, more money, a partner, to party etc she's 34, while I disagree with her, I'm not trying to be a shrink but this how life goes, sometimes you have to accept things and let go, you do the reasons .. what ever you could and go with the flow what comes .. comes, besides I think she got many things already, but sometimes person too greedy and demanding so blind to see, sometimes you think you have nothing in the same time some people dream to have what you got she "relativity" disagree/mock this concept lately .. ok enough rambling !

So please help me a with a song/songs about this issue that I see many people sometimes blind to see, a song basically tells that you don't need much to enjoy life or to be happy, materials not everything etc no "keep going or as I don't want anti-suicide or something like that" anything but rap/hip-hop or country.

Thanks in advance awesome community,

Unseen.

How about The Verve?

Lucky man

Happiness

More or less

It's just a change in me

Something in my liberty

Oh, my, my

Happiness

Coming and going

I watch you look at me

Watch my fever growing

I know just where I am

But how many corners do I have to turn?

How many times do I have to learn

All the love I have is in my mind?

But I'm a lucky man

With fire in my hands

Happiness

Something in my own place

I'm stood here naked

Smiling, I feel no disgrace

With who I am

Happiness

Coming and going

I watch you look at me

Watch my fever growing

I know just who I am

But how many corners do I have to turn?

How many times do I have to learn

All the love I have is in my mind?

I hope you understand

I hope you understand

Gotta love that'll never die

"Side" by Travis

Well I believe theres someone watching over you

Theyre watching every single thing you say

And when you die

Theyll set you down and take you through

Youll realise one day

That the grass is always greener on the other side

The neighbours got a new car that you wanna drive

And when time is running out you wanna stay alive

We all live under the same sky

We all will live, we all will die

There is no wrong, there is no right

The circle only has one side

We all try hard to live our lives in harmony

For fear of falling swiftly overboard

But life is both a major and minor key

Just open up the chord

But the grass is always greener on the other side

The neighbours got a new car that you wanna drive

And when time is running out you wanna stay alive

We all live under the same sky

We all will live, we all will die

There is no wrong, there is no right

The circle only has one side

You Can't Always Get What You Want ~ Rolling Stones

You can't always get what you want

But if you try sometimes you just might find

You just might find

You get what you need....

And Peaches mentioned this song in another thread...

If I Ain't Got You

Alicia Keys

Some people live for the fortune

Some people live just for the fame

Some people live for the power, yeah

Some people live just to play the game

Some people think that the physical things

Define what's within

And I've been there before

But that life's a bore

So full of the superficial

I think this one may fit the bill:

The Greatest Love of All

George Benson (1977); covered by Whitney Houston (1985)

I believe the children are our future

Teach them well and let them lead the way

Show them all the beauty they possess inside

Give them a sense of pride to make it easier

Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be

Everybody's searching for a hero

People need someone to look up to

I never found anyone who fulfilled my needs

A lonely place to be and so I learned to depend on me

I decided long ago

Never to walk in anyone's shadows

If I fail, If I succeed

At least I lived as I believed

No matter what they take from me

They can't take away my dignity

Because the greatest love of all is happening to me

I've found the greatest love of all inside of me

The greatest love of all is easy to achieve

Learning to love yourself, it is the greatest love of all

I believe the children are our future

Teach them well and let them lead the way

Show them all the beauty they possess inside

Give them a sense of pride to make it easier

Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be

I decided long ago

Never to walk in anyone's shadows

If I fail, If I succeed

At least I lived as I believed

No matter what they take from me

They can't take away my dignity

Because the greatest love of all is happening to me

I've found the greatest love of all inside of me

The greatest love of all is easy to achieve

Learning to love yourself, it is the greatest love of all

And if by chance that special place

That you've been dreaming of

Leads you to a lonely place

Find your strength in love

Also this one (from my PTT)

Hero-Mariah Carey (1993)

There's a hero

If you look inside your heart

You don't have to be afraid

Of what you are

There's an answer

If you reach into your soul

And the sorrow that you know

Will melt away

And then a hero comes along

With the strength to carry on

And you cast your fears aside

And you know you can survive

So when you feel like hope is gone

Look inside you and be strong

And you'll finally see the truth

That a hero lies in you

It's a long road

When you face the world alone

No one reaches out a hand

For you to hold

You can find love

If you search within yourself

And the emptiness you felt

Will disappear

And then a hero comes along

With the strength to carry on

And you cast your fears aside

And you know you can survive

So when you feel like hope is gone

Look inside you and be strong

And you'll finally see the truth

That a hero lies in you

Lord knows

Dreams are hard to follow

But don't let anyone

Tear them away

Just hold on

There will be tomorrow

And in time

You'll find the way

And then a hero comes along

With the strength to carry on

And you cast your fears aside

And you know you can survive

So when you feel like hope is gone

Look inside you and be strong

And you'll finally see the truth

That a hero lies in you

That a hero lies in you

The Traveling Wilbury's - End of the Line

(chorus 1)

Well its all right, riding around in the breeze

Well its all right, if you live the life you please

Well its all right, doing the best you can

Well its all right, as long as you lend a hand

You can sit around and wait for the phone to ring

Waiting for someone to tell you everything

Sit around and wonder what tomorrow will bring

Maybe a diamond ring

(chorus 2)

Well its all right, even if they say you're wrong

Well its all right, sometimes you gotta be strong

Well its all right, as long as you got somewhere to lay

Well its all right, everyday is judgment day

Maybe somewhere down the road aways

You'll think of me, and wonder where I am these days

Maybe somewhere down the road when somebody plays

Purple haze

(chorus 3)

Well its all right, even when push comes to shove

Well its all right, if you got someone to love

Well its all right, everything'll work out fine

Well its all right, were going to the end of the line

Don't have to be ashamed of the car I drive

I'm just glad to be here, happy to be alive

It don't matter if you're by my side

I'm satisfied

(chorus 4)

Well its all right, even if you're old and gray

Well its all right, you still got something to say

Well its all right, remember to live and let live

Well its all right, the best you can do is forgive

(chorus 5)

Well its all right, riding around in the breeze

Well its all right, if you live the life you please

Well its all right, even if the sun don't shine

Well its all right, were going to the end of the line

Take this from "Instant Karma":

Who in the hell dyou think you are

A super star

Well, right you are

Well we all shine on

Like the moon and the stars and the sun

Well we all shine on

Evryone come on
