We Are Warriors – Avril Lavigne

It’s another addition of Music Monday! In case you didn’t know that I’m a huge fan of Avril Lavigne.

This song is about how all of our essential workers are working towards combating Covid-19. I remember she was asking for people to submit their warriors for her video. It is a really inspiring song and video.

I appreciate everyone who is working hard through all of this.

“‘Cause we are warriors, we’ll fight for our lives
Like soldiers all through the night
And we won’t give up, we will survive, we are warriors
And we’re stronger, that’s why we’re alive
We will conquer, time after time
We’ll never falter, we will survive, we are warriors”

-Avril Lavigne, We Are Warriors

Keep Holding On – Avril Lavigne

I have always loved this song. I have been a big fan of Avril Lavigne since day one, when I saw Complicated on the TV back in 2002.

This song will always have a special place in my heart. I remember my family went out for a family birthday, and my mom had found out that her cousin had passed away. He was very sick, and was in the hospital, trying to get better, but unfortunately he didn’t make it. My mom was crying during the car ride back home, and this song was playing on the radio. Being 12 and seeing your mama cry is heartbreaking because there wasn’t much I can do to help her better, aside from hugging her. I wasn’t overly close to him, like my mama was, but what made it sad for me was seeing my mama grieve her cousin’s loss. This song gave me hope that things will get better. I had never been to a funeral before.

It was really a sad time, because when he had passed away his girlfriend was was pregnant, and their eldest daughter was only two years old at the time. He had so much life ahead of him.

I know that everyone has their struggles, so I hope that this helps you, and remind you that things may be difficult now, but keep holding on because things will get easier, and better.

“Nothing’s gonna change destiny
Whatever’s meant to be will work out perfectly”

-Avril Lavigne, Keep Holding On

Breakaway -Kelly Clarkson

I have always loved this song growing up. It is such an inspirational song. It was written by Avril Lavigne, who is one of my favourite singers, especially when I was younger.

“I’ll spread my wings, and I’ll learn how to fly
I’ll do what it takes till I touch the sky
And I’ll make a wish
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won’t forget all the ones that I love
I’ll take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway”

-Kelly Clarkson

To me, this songs talks about how we can make changes in our lives. It’s about wanting to take a chance to rewrite your story. And that no matter how hard and dark things get, things will always get better. There’s no shame in wanting something new and better.

You are the author of the story of your life. No one else is. Keep on striving for the greatness you are destined to have.

No Makeup

“I’m not wearing any make-up,
won’t hide who I am,
I’ll be what I am
I’m just being honest with my self once again
I’m my only friend”

-Avril Lavigne

I absolutely love this song! It’s about being your true self no matter what. It’s about not concealing yourself in a world that has gotten a bit materialistic which is unfortunate because beauty is something that shouldn’t be bought instead it is something that comes from within. Embrace it! 🙂

Avril Lavigne – Who Knows?

This used to be one of my favourite songs growing up. I love Avril Lavigne a lot. In fact many years my parents bought me tickets to go to one of her concerts for one of my birthday present. It was my first concert I have ever attended.

This song speaks volumes to me because I am in the middle of a positive transition in my life.

“Who knows what could happen

Do what you do

Just keep on laughing.

One thing’s true is

there’s always a brand new day

I’m going to live like it’s my last day.”
