10 inspirational songs that will lift your spirit

Music was always a big part of my life. I grew up with a musician and for a big part of my childhood music was playing all the time in my home.

Music is a way to express your emotions, to feel understood, comforted and inspired, to feel better. Music is a way to return to yourself.


For me, music was a way to express my emotions, but also, to feel understood, comforted and inspired, to feel better. Music was a way to return to myself.

I want to share with you 10 songs with meaningful and inspirational lyrics. I hope they motivate you and give your day a little boost.

“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent.”
~ Victor Hugo

#1 Naughty Boy ft. Emeli Sandé – Wonder

“I can beat the night, I’m not afraid of thunder
I am full of light, I am full of wonder
Though our feet might ache, the world’s upon our shoulders
No way we goin’ break, ’cause we are full of wonder”

#2 Nelly Furtado – Spirit Indestructible

“I have a spirit indestructible
A heart that was made pure
Unbreakable and that’s for sure
Unshakeable, so give me more”

#3 Jessie J – Who You Are

“Don’t lose who you are in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing, it’s okay not to be okay
Sometimes it’s hard to follow your heart
Tears don’t mean you’re losing, everybody’s bruising, just be true to who you are”

#4 Beyoncé – I Was Here

“I wanna say I lived each day until I die
And know that I meant something in somebody’s life
The hearts I have touched will be the proof that I leave
That I made a difference, and this world will see”

#5 Estelle – Conqueror

“I’d rather stand tall
Than live on my knees
‘Cause I’m a conqueror
And I won’t accept defeat”

#6 Natasha Bedingfield – Unwritten

“Feel the rain on your skin, no one else can feel it for you, only you can let it in
No one else, no one else can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken, live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins, the rest is still unwritten”

#7 Christina Aguilera – The Voice Within

“When there’s no one else look inside yourself
Like your oldest friend just trust the voice within
Then you’ll find the strength that will guide your way
You’ll learn to begin to trust the voice within”

#8 Mariah Carey – Through The Rain

“I can make it through the rain, I can stand up once again on my own
And I know that I’m strong enough to mend
And every time I feel afraid I hold tighter to my faith
And I live one more day and I make it through the rain”

#9 Pink – Perfect

“Pretty, pretty, please, don’t you ever, ever feel
Like you’re less than, less than perfect
Pretty, pretty, please, if you ever, ever feel
Like you’re nothing, you’re perfect to me”

#10 Sugababes – Stronger

“I’ll make it through the rainy days
I’ll be the one who stands here longer than the rest
When my landscape changes, rearranges, I’ll be stronger than I’ve ever been
No more stillness, more sunlight, everything’s gonna be alright”

Until next time,
