I am often struck by the incredible power of music and it's ability to move you. And although you may have heard a particular song many times, suddenly it can mean something completely different to you because of a change of mood or circumstances.

And so it was as I was driving in to town this afternoon and heard a song I've heard many times before and probably passed it off as a cheap opportunity to cash in on the last Commonwealth Games at best. But as I listened to the lyrics, I was so struck by how it seemed to "fit" the events of today. Maybe it fits yours too......

I know you're hurting
Feels like you're learning
'Bout life the hard way
And it ain't working
Seems like forever
That you've been falling
It's time to move on
Your life is calling, yeah

This was never meant to be the end
Close the book and start again

Cause I know how hard it can get
But you gotta lift
You gotta lift
And sometimes that's how it is
But I know you're stronger
Stronger than this
You gotta lift
You gotta lift

When you can feel your
Whole body's aching
What's left of your heart
It won't stop breaking
You gotta let go
You took a hit
Time to pick up now
Move on from this

This was never meant to be the end
Close the book and start again

Cause I know how hard it can get
But you gotta lift
You gotta lift
And sometimes that's how it is
But I know you're stronger
Stronger than this

You gotta
Lift yourself up above all the hurt
Don't give in
Wipe your eyes and remember
You're better than this
Let them know
That they took their best shot
And missed
C'mon and lift

This was never meant to be the end
Close the book and start again

Cause I know how hard it can get
But you gotta lift
You gotta lift
And sometimes that's how it is
But I know you're stronger
Stronger than this

You gotta lift
You gotta lift

Pick up now...
Pick up now...

"Lift" - Shannon Noll.
