I was just
stalking going through Lika’s Facebook profile today and came across a video she shared of Rod Stewart’s Can’t Take That Away. Something sparked in my brain as I remembered faintly of a song of the same title, sung by Mariah Carey. I thought it was the same song; just sang by a different singer, so I gave it a listen. Alas, it was a different song.
I then searched up Mariah’s song of that name. I knew I used to love that song, meaning-wise, but I couldn’t remember the lyrics, save for the ‘can’t take that away from me‘ line.
As the music began, the words slowly came back to me, and I found myself singing along to the words almost naturally.
And then I just burst into tears.
Maybe it’s because I’m going through a rather hard time now; maybe not. Maybe it reminded me of the time back then when I was depressed and had always turned to this song for support; for the little bit of hope that was left.
Whatever the reason may be, I just know that it touched my heart deeply. Guys, always remember.. No one can take that little light in you that strives for your dreams! Go after it. If you think about it at least once every day, NEVER give up on it. No matter how impossible, no matter how small, or how big. Do what you have to to go after it. Of course, provided you don’t harm anyone or do anything illegal lahh. =p
