There's a Song for That // Discouraged



We all know how healing and amazing that music is. One of the many reasons why I love music is because there is a song that captures and/or explains every human emotion in life and I thought it would be fun to throw out moods and share songs that are about them or are an answer to them. There's a Song for That posts will be on Fridays (not every Friday necessarily). Now, onto the new feature....

The mood: Discouraged



There's a song for that: La Brea by Alex Isley


On an adventurous day last month, I poked around the radio portion of Spotify and saw that Hey Fran Hey curated set of chill music. Included on that playlist was a beautiful song named La Brea. The velvety bass intro drew me in first and then the message in the song took me over. Last month (August), I was on the verge of going into the rabbit hole of self doubt about some things in my personal and professional life. The message in this song touched me to my core and helped me shift my focus from where I wasn't yet and hadn't accomplished to one of recognition that I have come a long way and overcome some large feats. If I had made it this far, I hadn't done so in heavy state of doubt. I had the song on repeat non-stop for quite a few weeks until my energy and thoughts moved back into a dominant state of believing that what I want for myself will be mine and is on its way. The lyrics and the audio of the song are below.

Whenever you need a pick me up, this song is a perfect answer. Stay encouraged everyone, we've all come a long way from where we started. :-)


La Brea Lyrics

Intro:
Believe Believe Believe Believe Believe Believe*2

Verse 1:
I see pretty lights in the distance
I can be underneath them in an instance
I know, The road is gonna take me
No i won’t fall but if i did nothing could break me
Don’t let fear get in front of you
Know just where you wanna go (know)
Know in your heart you’ll arrive
Whatever is ahead of you there is something that you should know
You’re in for such a beautiful ride
And so i...


Hook:
Believe Believe Believe Believe Believe Believe*2

Look how far you’ve come, From where you came from
Look at where you’re going (going)*2

Verse 2:
Gold skies of a hill and a highway, my time
Thinkin' about the future, going my way I’ve learned
Ain't no use in pretending
So I’ll give my all
And I’ll always know the place of my beginning
Don’t let doubt get in front of you
Know just where you wanna be (wanna be)
Know in your heart you’ll arrive
Just when you think you know enough
You’ve got so much to see
You’re in for such a beautiful ride
And so i

Hook:
Believe Believe Believe Believe Believe Believe*2

Look how far you’ve come, From where you came from
Look at where you’re going (going)*2

Bridge:
The Possibilities of what you can be will never end
So just begin (begin)
The Possibilities of what you will be will never end
So just begin (begin)

Outro:
Won’t you Look how far you’ve come, From where you came from
Look at where you’re going (going)
Look how far you’ve come from where you started from
Look at you where you’re going (going)
