Music Monday: Backbone by Daughtry

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

 

Thoughts and other ramblings

I wanted to pick something with a positive message this week, because this is my birthday week, and I’m determined to have a good time.

Apparently, I didn’t pick a Daughtry song before, even though I’ve been listening to his music since… 2007 maybe? Whenever I heard Over You the first time. I love his voice, though he has far too many love songs for my tastes in the last couple of years.

Backbone is from his latest album, Cage To Rattle and I quite liked it from the first time I heard it. I especially love the lyrics and its message. I had some rough times last year but I stood up and I’m still here, going stronger than ever. I don’t celebrate the “New Year” much, for me usually February is when a new year begins with my birthday. This is my time of reflection and setting up goals and having new experiences. I’m not quite sure what the next year will bring, but I think I’m ready for whatever comes.

 

Lyrics

When you’re hurting deep down
When you’re feelin’ like you’re never gonna dig your way out
Never gonna dig your way out
Keep pushing up the river
Keep mining for the silver
Til you’ve struck gold
Gotta whether the stormCause it can’t rain forever, no
I’m telling you…

We all fall on hard times, you know
Each day is a high climb, you know
Some days your body has to carry on
So you gotta show a little backbone
You know, you know, you know
You gotta show a little backbone

These troubles; so real
We’re all facing temptations
And our own fears
Year after year

But it can’t rain forever, no
I’m telling you…

We all fall on hard times, you know
Each day is a high climb, you know
Some days your body has to carry on
So you gotta show a little backbone
You know, you know, you know
You gotta show a little backbone
(You gotta show a little backbone)
You know (you gotta show a little backbone)
You gotta show a little backbone

Are you strong enough to get back up?
When the chains hold you to the ground
So let’s break ’em down, yeah, uh
Let’s break ’em down
Let’s break ’em down
Woah, I’m telling you…

We all fall on hard times, you know
Each day is a high climb, you know
Some days your body has to carry on
So you gotta show a little…
We all fall on hard times, yeah
Each day is a high climb, you know
We all fall on hard times, you know
(You gotta show a little backbone)
We all fall on hard times, yeah
You know each day is a high climb, you know
We all fall on hard times
Each day is a high climb, you know
You gotta show a little backbone
