“Then I take back out one of the Peppermint Patties, quickly unwrap it, and stick it in my mouth. I blame my dad for my sweet tooth. His motto was Life is short; eat dessert first. How can I argue with that?”
Jeremy Fink and The Meaning of Life, Wendy Mass
“‘Cause life is short and quickly passing by, Father, will You help me make the most of what is mine. With eyes open wide, I’m taking You in. Making the time, Mean all that it can. I don’t need a sign I just need to begin, need to begin like this With every second of every minute, I’m livin’ in it and that’s how I say it”
Say It, Britt Nicole
“‘Cause when it’s work all day I cannot escape. I just start to think that I’m going crazy take a break. Sometimes you’ve got to be still and breath.”
Holiday, Britt Nicole
“Sometimes I think
What will people say of me?
When I’m only just a memory.
When I’m home where my soul belongs.”
Live Like That, Sidewalk Prophets
“Look down, and see the beggars at your feet
Look down and show some mercy if you can
Look down and see the sweepings of the streets
Look down, look down, upon your fellow man!”
Look Down-Beggars, Les Miserables
“Angel of Music, guide and guardian,
Grant to me your glory.
Angel of Music, hide no longer.
Come to me, strange Angel.”
The Mirror/Angel of Music, The Phantom of the Opera
“Do you hear the people sing?
Singing a song of angry men?
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes!”
Do You Hear the People Sing, Les Miserables
