Aber die Musici bleiben besteh’n

Music Alone Shall Live (All Things Shall Perish)
Himmel und Erde müssen vergeh’n,
Aber die Musici,

Aber die Musici,
Aber die Musici bleiben besteh’n

 

All things shall perish from under the sky,

Music alone shall live

Music alone shall live

Music alone shall live, never to die.

 

So before you wonder if I’m going crazy, the answer is no, no I’m not.  I’ve been thinking a LOT about the power of music and what an awesome motivator it can be.  THEN I heard Don’t Stop by Fleetwood Mac and I felt like I HAD to share the lyrics.  From there it was time to come up with a title for the blog post when this song I sang at a music festival popped into my head and I knew if I put the title in German, it would require some explanation.  Wow…long convoluted explanation to get to the blog post, lol.

Don’t Stop – Christine McVie.

Sometimes, getting up and just getting out of bed can be the biggest struggle.  Who wants to leave their nice safe cozy haven to face who knows what?  And then there is the whole concept of morning.  It’s absolutely evil to some people.  So when you’re hiding in your bed, trying to avoid he world, think about all the great things that are out there.
If you wake up and don’t want to smile,
If it takes just a little while,
Open your eyes and look at the day,
You’ll see things in a different way.

All the drama that was yesterday is gone.  Let it go, leave it behind.  It’s over.  Instead, celebrate what’s coming, a whole brand new day.
Don’t stop, thinking about tomorrow,
Don’t stop, it’ll soon be here,
It’ll be, better than before,
Yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone.
Don’t dwell on past mistakes, or even spend too much time celebrating the successes of yesterday.  Instead think about what’s coming.  It’s a new day and a new chance to make some miracles happen.
Why not think about times to come,
And not about the things that you’ve done,
If your life was bad to you,
Just think what tomorrow will do.

Don’t stop, thinking about tomorrow,
Don’t stop, it’ll soon be here,
It’ll be, better than before,
Yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone.

Life doesn’t always work out the way we planned.  There are bumps detours and roadblocks in our journey and sometimes things happen that make us unhappy.  Let them go as quickly as you can and look forward to the new adventures to come.  Remember there is always somebody that wants you to smile and be happy.
All I want is to see you smile,
If it takes just a little while,
I know you don’t believe that it’s true,
I never meant any harm to you.

Don’t stop, thinking about tomorrow,
Don’t stop, it’ll soon be here,
It’ll be, better than before,
Yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone.

Don’t you look back,
Don’t you look back.
