Inspirational Song of the Week

Inspirational Song of the Week

Everybody Hurts – R.E.M.

YouTube Preview Image

I realize that some will argue that this week’s edition of Inspirational Song of the Week isn’t inspirational.  To me, inspiration isn’t always about gung-ho excitement, I believe that we can be inspired to think, to reflect, and to care for those around us.   This song and video hinges on the simple reminders that everyone goes through strife, and things will always get better.

When the day is long and the night, the night is yours alone,
When you’re sure you’ve had enough of this life, well hang on
Don’t let yourself go, ’cause everybody cries and everybody hurts sometimes

Sometimes everything is wrong. Now it’s time to sing along
When your day is night alone, (hold on, hold on)
If you feel like letting go, (hold on)
When you think you’ve had too much of this life, well hang on

‘Cause everybody hurts. Take comfort in your friends
Everybody hurts. Don’t throw your hand. Oh, no. Don’t throw your hand
If you feel like you’re alone, no, no, no, you are not alone

If you’re on your own in this life, the days and nights are long,
When you think you’ve had too much of this life to hang on

Well, everybody hurts sometimes,
Everybody cries. And everybody hurts sometimes
And everybody hurts sometimes. So, hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
Everybody hurts. You are not alone
