“Love Wins” by Carrie Underwood

Music has a way of saying things in just the right way. I find it extremely inspirational that many times the exact song that I need at the moment finds a way to present itself to me. Yesterday before the first debate of the already divisive Presidential race the song “Love Wins” by Carrie Underwood came up as I shuffled music. It really spoke to me. We all definitely need to understand that there is more that brings us together than separates us. Together we can get through anything but divided we can find a way to make the most special moments miserable.

A stray bullet and a momma cries
Her baby won’t be coming home tonight
Sirens screaming down the avenue
Just another story on the evening news, oh
Whoa
Politics and prejudice
How the hell it’d ever come to this?
When everybody’s gotta pick a side
It don’t matter if you’re wrong or right, no

And so it goes, but I hold onto hope and I won’t let go ’cause

I, I believe you and me are sisters and brothers
And I, I believe we’re made to be here for each other
And we’ll never fall if we walk hand in hand
Put a world that seems broken together again
Yeah I, I believe in the end love wins

Sometimes it takes a lot of faith
To keep believing there will come a day
When the tears and the sadness, the pain and the hate
The struggle, this madness, will all fade away, yeah

I, I believe you and me are sisters and brothers
And I, I believe we’re made to be here for each other
And we’ll never fall if we walk hand in hand
Put a world that seems broken together again
Yeah I, I believe in the end love wins

Love is power, love is a smile
Love reaches out, love is the remedy
Love is the answer, love’s an open door
Love is the only thing worth fighting for, yeah

I, I believe you and me are sisters and brothers
And I, I believe we’re made to be here for each other
And we’ll never fall if we walk hand in hand
Put a world that seems broken together again
Yeah I, I believe in the end love wins
Oh, yeah, love wins

Love will, love can, love still, love wins
Love will, love can, love still, love wins
