    Have you thought of using inspirational historical people to get those juices going?  Iliketrains did a tune about Spencer Percievil - the first British Prime Minister to be assassignated.  It has to be something that touches you.  Good luck!

    Having been a singer myself for a number of years and also a person who has had to endure a lot of illness and heartache with one thing and another, I have found that when I sing it has got me through some really tough times. I have a couple of songs that I find have got me through some bad times and are truly inspirational.
    The first one is called "You'll never walk along", it is from a musical called "carousel". I don't know if you are familiar with it but I can supply you with the words if you would like them.
    The other one is a very beautiful song which was sung by the nun in the lovely musical called "The Sound of Music", which is called "Climb Every Mountain", because it is saying that you should strive to the highest point that you can until you find your dream, that one true wonderful thing in your life. You should not stop, until you have finally found what it is that you are looking for. I hope these two songs have helped you I know that they certainly have helped me on many occasions. I would like to also say I would like to be a follower of yours and invite you to be a follower of mine love from Beautybabe.
