CureCovid20 Challenge: Song Lyrics

As you can read from the title, I hope that we can all overcome this Covid-19 period by this year, 2020, hence the name CureCovid20. Whether you are fighting Covid-19, treating Covid-19 patients, a frontliner, in quarantine, in lockdown, away from your homes or simply need encouragement during these Covid-19 times, here are some selected lyrics or songs for you to listen to! To participate in this CureCovid20 Challenge, you need to select song lyrics and find some way to relate them to these Covid-19 times. The song lyrics should preferably be motivational. You can show the connection to Covid-19 times by making words bold. For example, if you want to associate lyrics with social distancing and isolation, be sure to bold the related words. The minimum number of songs is 3. Feel free to add a little bit of explanation, in case nobody gets it! (Note: Scroll to the bottom of the page to play the songs!)


Fight Song by Rachel Platten

This is my fight song

Take back my life song

Prove I'm alright song

My power's turned on

Starting right now I'll be strong

I'll play my fight song

And I don't really care if nobody else believes

'Cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me


I’m Still Standing by Elton John

Don't you know I'm still standing better than I ever did

Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid

I'm still standing after all this time

Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind


Coming Home by Dirty Money feat. Skylar Grey

I'm coming home

I'm coming home

Tell the world I'm coming home

Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday

I know my kingdom awaits and they've forgiven my mistakes

I'm coming home, I'm coming home

Tell the world that I'm coming


People Like Us By Kelly Clarkson

We come into this world unknown

But know that we are not alone

They try and knock us down

But change is coming, it's our time now

Hey… everybody loses it

Everybody wants to throw it all away sometimes

And hey… yeah I know what you're going through

Don't let it get the best of you, you'll make it out alive

Oh

People like us, we've gotta stick together

Keep your head up, nothing lasts forever

Here's to the damned, to the lost and forgotten

It's hard to get high when you're living on the bottom


Keep Your Head Up By Andy Grammer

I've been waiting on a sunset,

Bills on my mindset

I can't deny they're getting high

Higher than my income, income's bread crumbs

I've been trying to survive

The glow that sun gets right around sunset helps me to realize

This is just a journey

Drop your worries, you are gonna turn out fine

Oh...

You turn out fine

Fine, oh, you turn out fine...

But, you gotta keep your head up

Oh oh

And you can let your hair down

Eh eh

You gotta keep your head up

Oh oh

And you can let your hair down

Eh eh

I know it's hard, know it's hard to remember sometimes

But, you gotta keep your head up

Oh oh

And you can let your hair down

Eh eh eh eh eh


Remedy (I Won’t Worry) By Jason Mraz

Well, I saw fireworks from the freeway

And behind closed eyes, I cannot make them go away

'Cause you were born on the fourth of July, freedom ring
Well, something on the surface, it stings

I said, something on the surface, well, it kinda makes me nervous who says that you deserve this?

And what kind of god would serve this?

We will cure this dirty old disease

Well, if you've gots the poison, I've gots the remedy


The remedy is the experience

This is a dangerous liaison

I says, the comedy is that it's serious

Which is a strange enough new play on words

I say the tragedy is how you're gonna spend

The rest of your nights with the light on

So shine the light on all of your friends

When it all amounts to nothing in the end


I, I won't worry my life away

Hey, oh, oh

I, I won't worry my life away

Hey, oh, oh


Don't Dream It's Over by Crowded House

There is freedom within, there is freedom without

Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup

There's a battle ahead, many battles are lost

But you'll never see the end of the road

While you're traveling with me

Hey now, hey now


Don't dream it's over

Hey now, hey now

When the world comes in

They come, they come

To build a wall between us

We know they won't win


We Are The World by U.S.A For Africa

We are the world

We are the children

We are the ones who make a brighter day, so let's start giving

There's a choice we're making

We're saving our own lives

It's true we'll make a better day, just you and me


You Are Not Alone By Michael Jackson

You are not alone

I am here with you

Though you're far away

I am here to stay

For you are not alone

I am here with you

Though we're far apart

You're always in my heart


Bigger Than My Body By John Mayer

Someday I'll fly

Someday I'll soar

Someday I'll be

So damn much more

'Cause I'm bigger than my body

Gives me credit for


Fireworks By Katy Perry

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag

Drifting thought the wind

Wanting to start again

Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin

Like a house of cards

One blow from caving in


Do you ever feel already buried deep

Six feet under scream

But no one seems to hear a thing

Do you know that there's still a chance for you

'Cause there's a spark in you


You just gotta ignite the light

And let it shine

Just own the night

Like the Fourth of July

'Cause baby you're a firework

Come on show 'em what your worth

Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"

As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you're a firework

Come on let your colors burst

Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"

You're gonna leave 'em fallin' down down down

      Loved you little sketch in the beginning. Stay safe. Great way to motivate in these times. I can't think of any lyrics right now but it's good to read the ones you have posted. This will be over soon, let's all hope, in 2020 itself.

      Li-Jen, another coronavirus related article...lol. Well done. The songs you selected are wonderful and very suitable to the theme. It is an interesting challenge and I'll see if I can find the time to partake and search for suitable songs. I can't promise I will, but I'll try. I love your cute drawing. Curevid-19 would be a good name for a vaccine when they find one.

      What a variety of positivity here. You have been working hard, Li-jen. I love your cartoon, but we needed a video, my Dear, with one of the songs or poems at least. Much Love.
