Song a Day (3)…

My friend Dr. Meg at Meg Sorick, Writer, tagged me for ‘a song a day’ challenge.  Meg writes and draws and bakes.  And she’s a chiropractor — can you say overachiever??   But seriously, you need to check out her blog if you don’t follow already.  It’s wonderful.

The rules are to post the lyrics of a favorite song five days in a row, explain what they mean to you (if you like) and add the video if available.  Even my kids tell me I have the musical taste of a preteen girl, so sorry about that 😀  You are then supposed to nominate two other bloggers who can participate if they wish and my choices are:

Jessica from Unmeasured Journeys

Steph at Bold Blind Beauty

My third song choice is One Moment in Time by Whitney Houston.  It was the theme for the 1988 Summer Olympics and Paralympics in Seoul, Korea.   Really, words for all of us to live by.  And hearing Whitney’s glorious voice is always a joy!

Each day I live
I want to be
A day to give
The best of me
I’m only one
But not alone
My finest day
Is yet unknown

I broke my heart
Fought every gain
To taste the sweet
I face the pain
I rise and fall
Yet through it all
This much remains

I want one moment in time
When I’m more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I’m racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will feel
I will feel eternity

I’ve lived to be
The very best
I want it all
No time for less
I’ve laid the plans
Now lay the chance
Here in my hands

Give me one moment in time
When I’m more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I’m racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will feel
I will feel eternity

You’re a winner for a lifetime
If you seize that one moment in time
Make it shine

Give me one moment in time
When I’m more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I’m racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will be
I will be
I will be free
I will be
I will be free

Songwriters: ALBERT HAMMOND, JOHN BETTIS

    1. This song always reminds me of Special Olympics, although I couldn’t see that it was used as their theme. But it would be perfect.

      2. Absolutely, T. My Dave was involved some, but his is more of a physical disability so playing sports is not really his thing!

  6. This is a terrible challenge, if I may say so. Every day I listen to songs and then they are stuck in my mind and I hum the rest of the day and sound like a broken record. 🙂

    LOVE the song! LOVE it! Good choice.
