Fight Song by Rachel Platten

This song is so beautiful. It could be matched up with a lot of different books, but the book that I choose is Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi.

5/5 stars

PG This song is for anyone to listen to. There are no bad words/scenes, only inspiration, and the inner strength.

Shatter Me is about a girl who’s looks could kill, but touch will kill. We journey with her, as she is stuck in an asylum kept company only by the screams of the insane and the nightmares recapping the deadly deeds she has performed. Until, one day, Adam, a boy that she used to know, comes tapping at her cell door, coming to join her. She only has to stay with him a while before she figures out who he really is. Hold on tight as Juliette is spun up in a whirlwind of the chase for power. Many people in this tornado believe that she is the key to getting all power once and for all. Will Juliette be so disoriented that she chooses the wrong side? Read the book to find out.

Young PG-13 (PG-13, but for kids on the younger end of it)  Reason: A few lines about memorizing every inch of a body, and a few scenes with people almost being sexually assaulted without consent. (I use this language so that it can be confusing for younger children who’s parents haven’t had that talk with them, but is still clear enough for others to understand.)

5/5 stars I loved this book. It has become one of my favorites (plus the covers look SO pretty!).

One of my new fave songs

“In Your Arms”

I feel like Superman
They gonna remember me
I think I know I can
Who says it’s hard to reach
Who’s gonna stop me on the road to success
I don’t know

They tried to break me down
But I’m still on my feet
This city’s full of life
So why is it hard to breathe
Oh, why did God create this world so unfair
I don’t know

Sometimes I feel like I can’t run, I can’t crawl
And sometimes I feel like I ain’t nothing at all
Life is a journey where you stumble and fall
But I’m okay

When I lie down in your arms
Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]
When I lie down in your arms
Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]
When I lie down in your arms

I feel like moving back
Sometimes it’s hard to dream
The life I chose is past
It’s moving without me
Who doesn’t want a machine so they can go back in time
I don’t know

My time went by too fast
There’s no one left but me
I’ve got a nine to five
And it gets the best of me
This is the life I’m gonna live to the end
But I’m okay

When I lie down in your arms
Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]
When I lie down in your arms
Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]
When I lie down in your arms

Sometimes I feel like I can’t run, I can’t crawl
And sometimes I feel like I ain’t nothing at all
Life is a journey where you stumble and fall
But I’m okay

When I lie down in your arms
Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]
When I lie down in your arms
Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]
When I lie down in your arms
Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]
When I lie down in your arms
Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]
When I lie down in your arms

This song is so beautiful, as well as the music video. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did. When I read the lyrics they seem so real and about life. Remember that we all stumble and fall. People will try to bring us down, but remember to try to stay on your feet. There are so many people who care about you all especially the Lord and Jesus.

Comment and tell me what you thought of this song, and what it reminds you of. Or comment and tell what the music video made you think of. This music video almost brought me to tears it was so well made.

See you in my next post!
