How You Live by Point of Grace


I'm being reflective on my birthday and I hope I'm living my life this way. Go find a way to listen to this song. If you can't find time to listen, still make time to read these lyrics by Point of Grace.


How You Live (Turn Up The Music) Lyrics - Point Of Grace

Wake up to the sunlight

With your windows open

Don’t hold in your anger or leave things unspoken

Wear your red dress

Use your good dishes

Make a big mess and make lots of wishes

Have what you want

But want what you have

And don’t spend your life looking back

Chorus

Turn up the music

Turn it up loud

Take a few chances

Let it all out

You won’t regret it

Looking back from where you have been

Coz it’s not who you knew

And it’s not what you did

It’s how you live

So go to the ballgames

And go to the ballet

And go see your folks more than just on the holidays

Kiss all your children

Dance with your wife

Tell your husband you love him every night

Don’t run from the truth‘Cause you can’t get away

Just face it and you’ll be ok

Chorus

Turn up the music

Turn it up loud

Take a few chances

Let it all out

You won’t regret it

Lookin’ back from where you have been

‘Cause it’s not who you knew

And it’s not what you did

It’s how you live


Oh wherever you are and wherever you’ve been

Now is the time to begin
So give to the needyAnd pray for the grieving

E’en when you don’t think that you can

‘Cause all that you do is bound to come back to you

So think of your fellow man

Make peace with God and make peace with yourself

‘Cause in the end there’s nobody else

Chorus

Turn up the music

Turn it up loud

Take a few chances

Let it all out‘Cause you won’t regret it

Lookin’ back from where you have been

‘Cause it’s not who you knew

And it’s not what you did

It’s how you live

‘Cause it’s not who you knew

And it’s not what you did

It’s how you live

Kristy, James, Tishauna, thanks for the b-day wishes. I am 29.... still in my twenties =P. haha

James, I've heard another song that makes me think about this too.. "I hope you Dance". It is so beautiful and reminds me of this song.

Tishauna... I don't know about all that. Lord, help me, I have a lot to live up to. lol I love you to pieces. You are an invaluable and irreplaceable one of a kind friend.

Hey, I know I wished you happy birthday on your last post, but since this is your "official" birthday post, I wanted to say it again! HAPPY BIRTHDAY AND LOVE YOU SO MUCH!! =)
I like the lyrics to this song, and I have heard the song before. It's pretty cool...and I liked the part about "wear your red dress, use your good dishes." If you think about it, we really do "save" things for the "special times" quite a bit (at least I do!) Perhaps we should save those things less, and savor the moments of life more often and make more "special times"!
Anyway, just random thoughts here. Like the song!
