      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.
