Oh, lord; do not invite me to your funeral (haha) I'll cry enough to make mud. I actually paid attention to the song when I bought the sontrack to a movie Bette Midler was in and she sang it. Then I went, "Hey, isnt that a Beatles song?" and got out that CD. Sometimes we really don't listen to the lyrics to a song. I THOUGHT I learned to do it as a teen when I'd have arguments with my mother about music! As the eldest, frumpy, thick-glasses-wearing, clumsy, tallest of four girls, I found myself defending the music of my three younger sisters. Once it was hand-writing out the words to "Let it Be" (good greif, when you write it out, it sounds like a hymn). The most memorable was when I spent a couple of hours in the kitchen with my mother arguing out the lyrics to "Jesus Christ, Superstar" because my baby sis' flamenco/classical guitar teacher was teaching it to her. To this day, Mom loves these memories (I was such a goody-two-shoes that this was a huge issue in my teens (late 60s, early 70s). Mom, BTW, is quite liberal, and always was (much more so than me). Some of these things just stepped on her religious upbringing, I guess.

I don't remember who sang it, but I suppose mine could be summed up in the song "What I did for love". "Kiss today goodbye - and point me toward tomorrow" (don't remember most of the words, but the title seems to fit my life).

I just took a quick look around, the song is from the musical "chorus line", the lyric written by Edward Kleban. Here is the entire Lyric...

What I Did For Love (Song Lyric)
Music by Marvin Hamlisch and Lyrics composed by Edward Kleban.
From the musical "A Chorus Line."


DIANA:
Kiss today goodbye,
The sweetness and the sorrow.
Wish me luck, the same to you,
But I can't regret what I did for love
What I did for love.

Look, my eyes are dry.
The gift was ours to borrow.
It's as if we always knew,
And I won't forget what I did for love,
What I did for love.

Gone,
Love is never gone.
As we travel on,
Love's what we'll remember.

Kiss today goodbye,
And point me toward tomorrow.
We did what we had to do.
Won't forget, can't regret
What I did for love.

ALL:
What I did for love.

DIANA:
What I did for.

ALL:
Love
Love is never gone.
As we travel on.
Love's what we'll remember.
Kiss today good bye.

DIANA:
And point me toward tomorrow.


ALL:
Point me toward tomorrow.
We did what we had to do.
Won't forget. Can't regret.
What I did for love
What I did for love.

DIANA:
What I did for.

ALL:
Love

One Moment In Time

Each day I live
I want to be
A day to give
The best of me
I'm only one
But not alone
My finest day
Is yet unknown

I broke my heart
Fought every gain
To taste the sweet
I face the pain
I rise and fall
Yet through it all
This much remains

I want one moment in time
When I'm more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I'm racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will feel
I will feel eternity

I've lived to be
The very best
I want it all
No time for less
I've laid the plans
Now lay the chance
Here in my hands

Give me one moment in time
When I'm more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I'm racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will feel
I will feel eternity

You're a winner for a lifetime
If you seize that one moment in time
Make it shine

Give me one moment in time
When I'm more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I'm racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will be
I will be
I will be free
I will be
I will be free

This is a hard question, but the first song that came to mind was Aaliyah - Try Again

"If at first you don't succeed, dust yourself off and try again"

I'm a perfectionist and I can be pretty hard on myself when I don't get things right. So I guess it just gives me faith.

Claire, there was a time in my life when I thought that every moment was personified by song lyrics (same time period as you - must be a boomer thing)!
