    These are just some songs that I recently came across and fell in love with every one of them because they all introduced me to a whole new realm of music that I have been searching for. They tell stories from the heart and I am just amazed by the passion through each one.

    1. Benny – Boys Will Be Boys

    I’m so tired of your illusions
    Rules, they never change
    And my mind is so abusive from taking on the shapes
    When it comes to your love, is it unconditional?
    When it comes to my love, anything is fixable
    And all this noise is so relentless
    I need a second to breathe

    2. Kadie Elder – First Time He Kissed a Boy

    Keeping back
    The ghost inside
    Locked him in a pack
    All his life
    All his life

    3. Son of a Preacher Man – Tom Goss

    Being good isn’t always easy
    No matter how hard I tried

    4. Alfie Arcuri – If They Only Knew

    They’ve never ever had the strength
    To feel the way in what we met
    So leave, go home
    And leave, go home

    5. morgxn – home

    “You had a bed made
    And all these precious memories
    You had to run away
    You’re looking for that bigger stage”

    6. State of Sound – Heaven

    She just wants to be beautiful
    She goes unnoticed, she knows no limits
    She craves attention, she praises an image
    She prays to be sculpted by the sculptor
    Oh, she don’t see the light that’s shining
    Deeper than the eyes can find it
    Maybe we have made her blind
    So she tries to cover up her pain and cut her woes away
    ‘Cause cover girls don’t cry after their face is made

    But there’s a hope that’s waiting for you in the dark
    You should know you’re beautiful just the way you are
    And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
    No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful
    Oh-oh, oh-oh
    And you don’t have to change a thing, yhe world could change its heart
    No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful

    She has dreams to be an envy, so she’s starving
    You know, covergirls eat nothing
    She says beauty is pain and there’s beauty in everything
    What’s a little bit of hunger?
    I could go a little while longer, she fades away
    She don’t see her perfect, she don’t understand she’s worth it
    Or that beauty goes deeper than the surface
    Oh, oh
    So to all the girls that’s hurting
    Let me be your mirror, help you see a little bit clearer
    The light that shines within

    There’s a hope that’s waiting for you in the dark
    You should know you’re beautiful just the way you are
    And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
    No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful

    Oh-oh, oh-oh
    And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
    No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful

    No better you than the you that you are (no better you than the you that you are)
    No better life than the life we’re living (no better life than the life we’re living)
    No better time for your shine, you’re a star (no better time for your shine, you’re a star)
    Oh, you’re beautiful, oh, you’re beautiful

    And there’s a hope that’s waiting for you in the dark
    You should know you’re beautiful just the way you are
    And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
    No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful
    Oh-oh, oh-oh
    And you don’t have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
    No scars to your beautiful, we’re stars and we’re beautiful

    This is a song I’m very fond of because it really talks about the struggles of young women that try to meet society’s view of perfection. It speaks to us young women and tells us that even our imperfections also known as scars are beautiful. I love uplifting songs like this because there are so many that speak so negatively about women. I hope every woman out there know that beauty goes deeper than the surface and that each perfect imperfection does not matter. You are beautiful the way you are!

    This is a wonderful song by Andra Day called ‘I’ll Rise Up” this song encourages us to rise up like the day and like the waves. Telling you to rise up unafraid and in spite of the ache. Sometimes when we are beginning to rise it can feel uncomfortable but its ok to sit in that discomfort and to continue rising.
