lyrics i love v. 3



i can't say enough about michael franti.   i admire the way he lives his life and the positive energy he sends out into the world.  we need more of that.  and his last album, "sound of sunshine" was a real support to me during the rough times of my pregnancy with ruby.  there were days that i felt nothing like the "me" that i remembered and was afraid i never would again.  during those times, i'd hear this song (or any other song on this album, for that matter) and it would help get me through to the next minute, the next hour, the next day.  and to me that's what great, worthy music is.  it acts as a comforting friend.  this isn't the usual, upbeat version of this song, but the acoustic version of it makes it easy to hear and understand the lyrics. here are my favorite parts...

from the tops of the buildings to the streets below
from the wall street banks to the empty homes
between the lines of the people standing all in a row
there’s a crack in the gutter where a flower grows
reminding me that everything is possible
yeah reminding me that nothing is impossible
you gotta live for the one that you love you know
you gotta love for the life that you live you know

singin’ hey, hey, hey no matter how life is today
there’s just one thing that i got to say
i won’t let another moment slip away
i say hey, hey, hey no matter how life is today
there’s just one thing that I got to say
i won’t let another moment slip away
don’t let nobody ever tell you that it couldn’t be done
don’t let nobody ever tell you that we couldn’t be one
don’t let nobody ever tell you that it shouldn’t be sung
don’t let nobody ever tell you you’re the only one
