"Life Uncommon"
- written and sung by Jewel




































Don't worry mother
it'll be all right


And don't worry sister
say your prayers and sleep tight


It'll be fine
lover of mine


It'll be just fine


Lend your voices only to sounds of freedom
No longer lend your strength to that which you wish to be free from


Fill your lives with love and bravery


And you shall lead
 a life uncommon



I've heard your anguish
I've heard your hearts cry out


We are tired
We are weary but we aren't worn out























Set down your chains,
until only faith remains















Set down your chains


And lend your voices only to sounds of freedom


No longer lend your strength to that
Which you wish to be free from



Fill your lives with love and bravery

And we shall lead
a life uncommon


There are plenty of people who pray for peace
But if praying were enough it would have come to be


Let your words enslave no one
and the heavens will hush themselves
To hear



our voices ring out clear
With sounds of freedom









































































Sounds of freedom



Come on you unbelievers,
move out of the way



There is a new army coming
and we are armed with faith


To live, we must give


To live





And lend our voices only to sounds of freedom



No longer lend our strength to that we wish to be free from


Fill your lives with love and bravery


And we shall lead...


 Lend our voices only to sounds of freedom




Lend our strength to that which we wish to be free from


Fill your lives with love and bravery



 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
and we shall live
A Life Uncommon

This post brought a tear to my eye. What a wonderful, special time that was. And I couldn't help but sing along. :)
Thanks for putting this together. I have so many BGC photos to share, but I didn't know where to begin, so I just sat. You've inspired me to get my act together. Thank you!
