Song Lyrics to Inspire You

How many times have you heard someone say that music has been there for them when no one else has? How many times have you thought or said it yourself? Words have always had a way to warm our soul when we need it, but when those strong words are combined with lilting music, and in a voice that haunts, or causes goosebumps, they can lift us up way more than just simple words on piece of paper ever could.

To commemorate the importance of all those immortal words, we’ve put together a list of some inspiring lyrics, and the artists that gave those words the music to touch our hearts.
