Scripted Sunday: The Voice Within

I have to admit, I’m a bit of a Christina Aguilera fan. She has some terrifically strong lyrics in her songs – not to mention she’s one heck of a singer!

I remember hearing this song ‘The Voice Within’ well before I was a mum, and always thinking ‘this will be a great song for my daughter some day’.

Turns out I was right.

As we negotiate the water of being almost eight, and my girl is learning who she is, while dealing with some real nasty girls, these lyrics couldn’t be more true. We all need to trust the voice within us, trust our instincts, and don’t forsake ourselves, be true.

I’m glad I remembered this song today. I’m going to put it on my daughter’s playlist.

 

The Voice Within
Christina Aguilera

Young girl, don’t cry
I’ll be right here when your world starts to fall
Young girl, it’s all right
Your tears will dry, you’ll soon be free to fly

When you’re safe inside your room you tend to dream
Of a place where nothing’s harder than it seems
No one ever wants or bothers to explain
Of the heartache life can bring and what it means

When there’s no one else
Look inside yourself
Like your oldest friend
Just trust the voice within
Then you’ll find the strength
That will guide your way
If you will learn to begin
To trust the voice within

Young girl, don’t hide
You’ll never change if you just run away
Young girl, just hold tight
And soon you’re gonna see your brighter day

Now in a world where innocence is quickly claimed
It’s so hard to stand your ground when you’re so afraid
No one reaches out a hand for you to hold
When you’re lost outside look inside to your soul

Life is a journey
It can take you anywhere you choose to go
As long as you’re learning
You’ll find all you’ll ever need to know

You’ll make it
You’ll make it
Just don’t go forsaking yourself
No one can stop you
You know that I’m talking to you

Young girl don’t cry
I’ll be right here when your world starts to fall
