Bit #17: Lessons in Lyrics~How You Live

Little Life Lesson and Bit of Grace 17: Live life to the are the only one to choose how you live.
"Quit hanging on to the handrails . . . Let go. Surrender. Go for the ride of your life. Do it every day." ~Melody Beattie
Thanks so much to my dear friend, Whitney for sending this fantastic song our way. What a perfect lesson in lyrics for this Wednesday. This song comes from a Christian band, Point of Grace and is appropriately titled "How you Live." Putting religious beliefs aside, this song is awesome and so incredibly beautiful. Read over the lyrics a few times.
Wake up to the sunlight with your windows open
Don't hold in your anger or leave things unspoken
Wear your red dress, use your good dishes
Make a big mess and make lots of wishes
And have what you want, but want what you have
And don't spend your life looking back

Turn up the music
Turn it up loud
Take a few chances and let it all out
'Cause you won't regret it
Looking back from where you have been
'Cause it's not who you knew
And it's not what you did I
t's how you live

So go to the ballgames and go to the ballet
And go see your folks more than just on the holidays
Kiss all your children, dance with your wife
Tell your husband you love him every night
Don't run from the truth 'cause you can't get away, no
Face it and you'll be okay


Oh, wherever you are and wherever you've been
Now is the time to begin
So give to the needy, and pray for the grieving
Even when you don't think that you can
'Cause all that you do is bound to come back to you
So think of your fellow man
And make peace with God, and make peace with yourself
'Cause in the end, there's nobody else



  1. What an awesome song. I always say I'm going to "wear my red dress" but I never seem to get around to it.

  2. Wow! Your blog is wonderful! So glad I found you on Whitney's blog.
