Have you ever listened to a song and caught a phrase they said and realized the power that words can have? Songwriters really have an amazing way to take their experiences and put them into a beautiful song for everyone to enjoy. Whether we interpret it in our own way with what we are dealing within our lives, or if the words are speaking to exactly what we are going through, the words just speak to us. Here are some song lyrics that have a deeper meaning.

1. "Praying" by Kesha (2017)

"Cause you brought the flames and you put me through hell I had to learn how to fight for myself. And we both know all the truth I could tell I'll just say this is I wish you farewell.

I hope you're somewhere praying, praying. I hope your soul is changing, changing. I hope you find your peace, Falling on your knees, praying.
I'm proud of who I am. No more monsters, I can breathe again. And you said that I was done. Well, you were wrong and now the best is yet to come."

2. "Fight Song" by Rachel Platten (2015)

"This is my fight song, Take back my life song, Prove I'm alright song. My power's turned on, Starting right now I'll be strong, I'll play my fight song. And I don't really care if nobody else believes, Cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me."

3. "Imagine" by John Lennon (1971)

5. "Try" by Pink (2012)

"Where there is desire, there is gonna be a flame. Where there is a flame, someone's bound to get burned. But just because it burns doesn't mean you're gonna die. You've gotta get up and try."

6. "I Lived" by OneRepublic (2012)

"I owned every second that this world could give. I saw so many places, the things that I did. With every broken bone, I swear I lived."

7. "Human" by Christina Perri (2014)

"I can do it, I'll get through it. But I'm only human, and I bleed when I fall down. I'm only human, and I crash and I break down."

8. "Carry On" by fun. (2012)

"If you're lost and alone, or you're sinking like a stone, carry on. May your past be the sound of your feet upon the ground, carry on."

"'Til your world burns and crashes, 'Til you're at the end, the end of your rope, 'Til you're standing in my shoes, I don't wanna hear nothing from you. From you, from you, cause you don't know. 'Til it happens to you, you don't know, How I feel."

11. "1-800-273-8255" by Logic (2017)

"I've been on the low, I been taking my time, I feel like I'm out of my mind, It feel like my life ain't mine, Who can relate? I've been on the low, I been taking my time, I feel like I'm out of my mind, It feel like my life ain't mine."

12. "Getting Older" by Billie Eilish (2022)

Last week, I realized I crave pity, when I retell a story, I make everything sound worse, can't shake the feeling that I'm just bad at healing.

12. "Landslide" by Dixie Chicks (2002)

Oh, mirror in the sky

What is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changin' ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?Well, I've been afraid of changin'
'Cause I've built my life around you

13. "Used to love you" by Gwen Stefani (2004)

You can keep all the memories

I thought I was the best thing that ever happened to you
I thought you loved me the mostI don't know why I cry
But I think it's cause I remembered for the first time
Since I hated you


That I used to love you

14. "Try" by Nelly Furtado

Then I see you standing thereWanting more from me

And all I can do is try, tryI wish I hadn't seen all of the realness
And all the real people are really not real at all
The more I learn the more I learn
The more I cry the more I cry

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
