Songs in my head!

DARE YOU TO MOVE - Switchfoot

Welcome to the planet
Welcome to existence
Everyone's here
Everyone’s here
Everybody's watching you now
Everybody waits for you now
What happens next?
What happens next?

(Chorus)
I dare you to run
I dare you to run
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to run
I dare you to run
Like today never happened
Today never happened before

Welcome to the fallout
Welcome to resistence
The tension is here
The tension is here
Between who you are and you could be
Between how it is and how it should be

(Chorus)
I dare you to run
I dare you to run
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to run
I dare you to run
Like today never happened
Today never happened before

Maybe redemption has stories to tell
Maybe forgiveness is right where you fell
Where can you run to escape from yourself?
Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna go?
Salvation is here

(Chorus)
I dare you to run
I dare you to run
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to run
I dare you to run
Like today never happened
Today never happened before

That's where I feel I am... someone's in the corner of my head... daring me to run. I have this song constantly playing in my head. Oddly enough I've heard this song recently after attending a neuro conference where a great speaker showed this video which had this song playing, showing traumatic brain injury patients and their survival. While the today that I'm talking about that has me stuck... is actually the events of the last year... I'm trying to take the challenge and run... and some moments I do, others not so much. Most moments I just say NBHHY...

Ultimately things are never in my hands... they're in God's... and whatever tomorrow brings whether it be good or bad... I'm still daring myself to run... and trying to pretend that today never happened.
