Looking for songs similar to True Colours

Recommended Posts

I'm creating a scrapbook of lyrics, poetry etc. for my friend to encourage her to follow her dreams, to believe in herself, that I'll be there for her etc. Of course with an accompanying CD! ;) I'm looking for songs similar to True Colours and Beautiful at the moment.

But here are the rest of the songs that I've thought about:

Walk On - U2

Make It Happen - Mariah Carey

I Just Can't Give Up Now - Mary Mary

His Eye Is On The Sparrow - Lauryn Hill

You Will Know - Black Men United

I'll Stand By You - The Pretenders

Reach Out (I'll Be There)- Gerald Levert (spelling?)

Remember Me This Way - Jordan Hill

I Am Blessed - Eternal

Breakaway - Kelly Clarkson

I Hope You Dance - Leann Womack

You Gotta Be - Desiree

You've Got A Friend - Carole King

Go The Distance - Hercules soundtrack

Never Give Up - Yolanda Adams

TIA :)

For following your dreams, this fits the bill.

Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes

Jimmy Buffett

I took off for a weekend last month

Just to try and recall the whole year

All of the faces and all of the places

Wonderin' where they all disappeared

I didn't ponder the question too long

I was hungry and went out for a bite

Ran into a chum with a bottle of rum

And we wound up drinkin' all night

It's these changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes

Nothing remains quite the same

With all of our running and all of our cunning

If we couldn't laugh we would all go insane

Reading departure signs in some big airport

Reminds me of the places I've been

Visions of good times that brought so much pleasure

Makes me want to go back again

If it suddenly ended tomorrow

I could somehow adjust to the fall

Good times and riches and son of a bitches

I've seen more than I can recall

These changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes

Nothing remains quite the same

Through all of the islands and all of the highlands

If we couldn't laugh we would all go insane

I think about Paris when I'm high on red wine

I wish I could jump on a plane

So many nights I just dream of the ocean

God I wish I was sailin' again

Oh, yesterday's over my shoulder

So I can't look back for too long

There's just too much to see waiting in front of me

And I know that I just can't go wrong

With these changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes

Nothing remains quite the same

With all of my running and all of my cunning

If I couldn't laugh I just would go insane

If we couldn't laugh we just would go insane

If we weren't all crazy we would...... go......... insane

HEY! I resemble that thread!! ::

Thanks Peaches for remembering! By the way, I am still volunteering for that place, and ALWAYS open for song suggestions!

Ess, between then and now, I have come up with other songs that you may consider...

Faith of the Heart - Rod Stewart

Hold Your Head Up - Argent

Wide Open Spaces - Dixie Chicks

Who doesn't know what I'm talking about

Who's never left home who's never struck out

To find a dream and a life of their own

A place in the clouds a foundation of stone

Many precede and many will follow

A young girl's dream no longer hollow

Survivor - Destinys Child

Three Little Birds - Bob Marley

Lean on Me - Bill Withers

The Moment - Melissa Etheridge ?

Hope some of these help.
