I turn to you...

When I was in high school the song "I turn to you" by Christina Aguilera reminded me of my mom and I had it as her ringtone for the longest time. This song as well as Celine Dion's "Because you love me" are two songs that through out my life have made me think of my mom! I love her dearly and I wanted to share the songs and lyrics with you.

I Turn To You

When I'm lost in the rain,
In your eyes I know
I'll find the light to light my way
And when I'm scared, losing ground
When my world is going crazy
You can turn it all around and when I'm down you're there
Pushing me to the top
You're always there, giving me all you've got

Chorus:
For a shield from the storm
For a friend
For a love to keep me safe and warm
I turn to you
For the strength to be strong
For the will to carry on
For everything you do
For everything that's true
I turn to you

When I lose the will to win
I just reach for you
And I can reach the sky again
I can do anything
'Cause your love is so amazing
'Cause your love inspires me
And when I need a friend
You're always on my side
Giving me faith, taking me through the night.

Chorus

For the arms to be my shelter
Through all the rain
For truth that will never change
For someone to lean on
For a heart I can rely on through anything
For the one who I can run to...

Chorus

Because you loved me.


For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I’ll be forever thankful baby
You’re the one who held me up
Never let me fall
You’re the one who saw me through
Through it all.

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ’coz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me.

You gave me wings and made me fly
You touched my hand I could touch The sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You said no star was out of reach
You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love I had it all
I’m greatful for each day you gave me
Maybe I don’t know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed because I was
Loved by you.

You were my strenght when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ’coz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me.

You were always there for me
The tender wind that carried me
A light in the dark shinning your love Into my life
You’ve been my inspiration
Through the lies you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faiht ’coz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me.

Thank you Mom, for everything!

Thank you for sharing these... When I was ALOT younger, there was a song that I dedicated to mom... in my mind, I don't think I ever told anyone about it. "Wind beneath my wings" :)
