  1. From Haven’t Got Time For The Pain by Carly Simon and Jacob Brackman Suggested by Candy Sandfor
    “All those crazy nights when I cried myself to sleep
    Now melodrama never makes me weep anymore

    Suffering was the only thing that made me feel I was alive
    Thought that’s just how much it cost to survive in this world
    ‘Til you showed me how, how to fill my heart with love
    How to open up and drink in all that white light
    Pouring down from the heavens
    I haven’t got time for the pain
    I haven’t got room for the pain
    I haven’t the need for the pain”

  2. From Already Gone by The Eagles

    “Well I know it wasn’t you who held me down
    Heaven knows it wasn’t you who set me free
    So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains
    And we never even know we have the key”

    1. We often allow our emotions and others to control us when we can actually control how we react to people and situations. We really do have the key to stop and assess what’s going on before we react and let something like anger control us thus spurting venom at someone or something.

  3. You’ve Got To Be Carefully Taught from the musical South Pacific

    “You’ve got to be taught, Before it’s too late, Before you are 6 or 7 or 8, To hate all the people your relatives hate, You’ve got to be carefully taught”

  4. From Drowning by Hootie & The Blowfish

    Why must we hate one another?
    Well no matter what, we gotta live together
    Just ’cause you don’t look like me; tell me, what do you see?
    When we pass on the street, what do you wanna see?

  5. From Everbody I Love You by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young

    “You expect for me to love you when you hate yourself …
    Though your heart is in anger, I need your love to get through

  6. From Let The Song Last Forever by Dan Hill

    Now I know you’ve been hurt you’ve been broken
    Life just ain’t real without pain
    And there’s no guarantee that all ends happily
    But when you fall you gotta rise up swinging again
    And you can run away I can run away
    We can both run till our lives are through
    Some people hide till their hollow inside
    Please don’t allow this to happen to you

    I’m so damn tired of hearing songs about pain
    There’s so much to learn, life’s too short now to spend it afraid

  7. From Nobody Taught Me How To Lie oby Dan Hill

      … and here I am with you, thrown so many lies your way, I believed most of them too
    And you say you love me – Girl you’ve been looking at a stranger
    If this hurts you somehow it hurts me more, I never knew what honesty was for
    Until the moment that you look at me, You say you want be a part of me,
    Girl whatever’s left of me is yours
     All the kids would laugh at me, I wouldn’t talk for fear I’d cry,
    Nobody, nobody taught me how to lie, Nobody taught me how to lie

  8. Julia Brennan: Inner Demons

    This song has gotten me through many times. It sheds light on mental health awareness, and talks about how hard it is sometimes to shut off those negative thoughts we have in our heads. Please know you are not alone, we are all fighting those “inner demons” right along with you.

    “They say don’t let them in
    Close your eyes and clear your thoughts again
    When I’m all alone, they show up on their own
    Cause inner demons fight their battles with fire
    Inner demons don’t play by the rules
    They say “Just push them down, just fight them harder
    Why would you give up on it so soon?”

    So angels, angels please just keep on fighting
    Angels don’t give up on me today
    The demons they are there; they just keep fighting
    Cause inner demons just won’t go away”

  9. Do you ever feel already buried deep
    Six feet under scream
    But no one seems to hear a thing

    Do you know that there’s still a chance for you
    ‘Cause there’s a spark in you
    You just gotta ignite the light
    And let it shine

    Just own the night
    Like the Fourth of July
    ‘Cause baby you’re a firework
    Come on show ’em what your worth
    Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh!”
    As you shoot across the sky

    Baby you’re a firework
    Come on let your colors burst
    Make ’em go “Oh, oh, oh!”
    You’re gonna leave ’em fallin’ down

    You don’t have to feel like a waste of space
    You’re original, cannot be replaced

    —“Firework” by Katy Perry
