Song on My Profile

The song I have on my profile at the moment is by an Australian singer, Pete Murray. I’ve seen his work before, mostly on music videos, but his song “Opportunity” really strikes home for a lot of different reasons.

Far too often, too many people mope about when there is a loss or they feel they have been disadvantaged. I admit, sometimes I am guilty of this as well, but usually, I’d like to think I am determined to fight on instead of let the darkness get the better side of me. Sure, I could give up, but what will that achieve?

The lyrics of this song are so brilliantly wonderful, and the tune probably helps them a lot as well. I feel it is inspirational and helps me feel better in a defeated/deflated mood, so I’m passing them on to you to inspire you as well.

The lyrics go:

“So it goes another lonely day
You’re saving time but you’re miles away
Your flowers drowning in some bitter tea
Foreseeing lost opportunity
Find your mirror
Go and look inside
See the talent you always hide
Don’t go kid yourself, well not today
Satisfaction’s not far away

“Hold on now, your exit’s here
It’s waiting just for you
Don’t pause too long
It’s fading now
It’s ending all too soon you’ll see
Soon you’ll see

“Your coffee’s warm but your milk is sour
Life is short but you’re here to flower
Dream yourself along another day
Never miss opportunity
Don’t be scared of what you cannot see
Your only fear is possibility
Never wonder what the hell went wrong
Your second chance may never come along

“Hold on now, your exit’s here
It’s waiting just for you
Don’t pause too long
It’s fading now
It’s ending all too soon you’ll see
Soon you’ll see

“Hold on now, your exit’s here
It’s waiting just for you
Don’t pause too long
It’s fading now
It’s ending all too soon you’ll see
Soon you’ll see
Soon you’ll see
Soon you’ll see
Soon you’ll see
Soon you’ll see”

So, for those of you who feel a bit blue or down on yourself, maybe feel you aren’t contributing to life… you are. We all have our moment in the sun, we all are loved (maybe by people we don’t know love us), and we are all special.

My most favourite part of the entire song is the second verse. Yeah, life is short, and I hope when I get to the end — and I have no plans to get there any time soon — I can say, “Wow. What a ride!”

Chins up, buttercups! I love you all! 🙂
