I work part-time at Barnes and Noble and usually there is some music playing in the background. This song came on and I was instantly mesmerized by singers sultry voice. After hearing it a few times at the bookstore and on the radio I was singing the lyrics.
The video is a little depressing, but it definitely gets across the meaning of rising up against odds.
And as always if you’d like to share some of your favorite lyrics and why, pingback to this post.

I came across this during one of my many late night YouTube nights. I don’t even remember how I got to it, but what I do remember is that when I first heard I fell in love with it. It became a regular on iTunes playlist.
Thinking Out Loud / I’m Not The Only One MASHUP
(Sam Tsui & Casey Breves)
When my legs don’t work like they used to before
And I can’t sweep you off of your feet
