A dream is a wish your heart makes,
When you’re fast asleep.
In dreams you will lose your heartaches,
Whatever you wish for, you keep.
Have faith in your dreams and someday,
Your rainbows will come smiling, too.
No matter how your heart is grieving,
If you keep on believing
A dream that you wish will come true.
-Cher, A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes

 

Remember there’s light if you wait till the dawn,
You may walk through the clouds

You’ve got to follow the sun.

“When I’m worried, and I can’t sleep
I count my blessings, instead of sheep,
And I fall asleep, counting my blessings.

And I fall asleep, counting my blessings.”

“Kaibigan, huwag kang magpapasindak.
Kaibigan, easy lang sa iyak.
Dahil wala ring mangyayari, tayo’y walang mapapala
Huwag mong pigilan ang pagbuhos ng ulan.
May panahon para maging hari, may panahon para dumapa
Dahil ang buhay natin ay sadyang ganyan,
umaaraw, umuulan.”
-Umaaraw, Umuulan by Rivermaya

If I live to be a hundred
And never see the seven wonders
That’ll be alright
If I don’t make it to the big leagues
If I never win a Grammy
I’m gonna be just fine
‘Cause I know exactly who I am
I am Rosemary’s granddaughter
The spitting image of my father
And when the day is done
My momma’s still my biggest fan
Sometimes I’m clueless and I’m clumsy
But I’ve got friends who love me
And they know just where I stand
It’s all a part of me
And that’s who I am”
– Jessica Andrews, Who I Am

“Don’t stress, relax,
let life roll of your backs.
Except for death and paying taxes,
everything in life is only for now.”

with poisoned smiles, all pray our love would never last
but we are trees, not vines,
you know our love is just like summertime.”
-Vivaldi’s Song, Michael Franks

“They can say anything they want to say,
try to bring me down, but I will not allow,
anyone to succeed, hanging clouds over me.
And they can try hard to make me feel that I don’t matter at all,
but I refuse to falter in what I believe, or lose faith in my dreams.
Cause there’s a light, there’s a light in me that shines brightly,
they can try, but they can’t take that away from me.”
-Mariah Carey, Can’t Take That Away

“They can do anything they want to you
If you let them in, but they won’t ever win
if you cling to your pride, and just push them aside
See I, I have learned, there’s an inner peace I own
Something in my soul, that they cannot possess
So I won’t be afraid, and the darkness will fade.
Cause there’s a light, there’s a light in me that shines brightly,
they can try, but they can’t take that away from me.”
-Mariah Carey, Can’t Take That Away

“They can say anything they want to say,
Try to bring me down,  but I won’t face the ground,
I will rise steadily sailing out of their reach,
Lord, they do try, hard to make me feel that I,
Don’t matter at all, but I refuse to falter,
In what I believe or lose faith in my dreams,
‘Cause there’s a light in me,  that shines brightly
Yes they can try but they can’t take that away from me.”
-Mariah Carey, Can’t Take That Away
