Ray LaMontagne's "Be Here Now"

This is by far one of my favorite songs; it's absolutely beautiful.  

The lyrics of this song (below) remind all of us exactly what we should already know so well... we all have strength and courage, we all have love for ourselves, we just forget about it sometimes when things get rough.  We don't need to rely on other things for that.  Most importantly, he reminds us to live in the moment and enjoy life as it goes, and to put trust only on things that are stable and true.

Listen to this one when you're down.  I guarantee it will pick you right back up.

Be Here Now - Ray LaMontagne

Don't let your mind get weary and confused
Your will be still, don't try
Don't let your heart get heavy child
Inside you there's a strength that lies

Don't let your soul get lonely child
It's only time, it will go by
Don't look for love in faces, places
It's in you, that's where you'll find kindness

Be here now, here now
Be here now, here now

Don't lose your faith in me
And I will try not to lose faith in you
Don't put your trust in walls
'Cause walls will only crush you when they fall

Be here now, here now

Be here now, here now
