Place In This World

A song by Michael W Smith

The wind is moving
But I am standing still
A life of pages
Waiting to be filled
A heart that’s hopeful
A head that’s full of dreams
But this becoming
Is harder than it seems
Feels like I’m

Looking for a reason
Roaming through the night to find
My place in this world
My place in this world
Not a lot to lean on
I need Your light to help me find
My place in this world
My place in this world

If there are millions
Down on their knees
Among the many
Can you still hear me?
Hear me asking
Where do I belong?
Is there a vision
That I can call my own?
Show me I’m

Looking for a reason
Roaming through the night to find
My place in this world
My place in this world
Not a lot to lean on
I need Your light to help me find
My place in this world
My place in this world

Beautiful Life

“Beautiful Life”
(from “Abominable” soundtrack)

Bebe Rexha

I was lost, but you found me
Hiding in the shadows from my destiny
And you saw things that no one else could see
You saved me when I was my worst enemy

It feels so good to be alive
Just you and me tonight
Don’t wake me up from this high
What a beautiful life
I heard your heart call mine
And then all the stars aligned
Don’t wake me up from this high
What a beautiful life

Spread through me like a wild flame
I feel it in my veins
I’ll never ever be the same
I’ll never be the same
Cheers to the thing money can’t buy
Can’t buy what I feel inside
This thing, I can’t deny
Our pretty little paradise

It feels so good to be alive
Just you and me tonight
Don’t wake me up from this high
What a beautiful life
I heard your heart call mine
And then all the stars aligned
Don’t wake me up from this high
What a beautiful life

Whoa-oo-oh
Whoa-oo-oh
Whoa-oo-oh
What a beautiful life

What a beautiful, what a beautiful, what a beautiful life
What a beautiful, what a beautiful, what a beautiful life
What a beautiful, what a beautiful, what a beautiful life
What a beautiful, what a beautiful, what a beautiful life

It feels so good to be alive
Just you and me tonight
Don’t wake me up from this high
What a beautiful life
I heard your heart call mine
And then all the stars aligned
Don’t wake me up from this high
What a beautiful life

Pocketful of Sunshine

Natasha Bedingfield

I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine.
I got a love, and I know that it’s all mine.
Oh, oh whoa

Do what you want, but you’re never gonna break me.
Sticks and stones are never gonna shake me.
No, oh whoa

Take me away (take me away)
A secret place (a secret place)
A sweet escape (a sweet escape)
Take me away (take me away)

Take me away (take me away)
To better days (to better days)
Take me away (take me away)
A hiding place (a hiding place)

I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine.
I got a love, and I know that it’s all mine.
Oh, oh whoa

Do what you want, but you’re never gonna break me.
Sticks and stones are never gonna shake me.
No, oh whoa

I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine.
I got a love, and I know that it’s all mine.
Oh, oh whoa

Wish that you
