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."

5. "Try" by Pink (2012)

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
