Something To Live For

Something To Live For

Sophie Penman

This song expresses a message that I have learnt over the past few years about self-direction and finding true enjoyment in life. Finding meaning in life, especially when some appear to have everything and others very little, can be a lot harder than many think. Although many may believe that any discontent they feel with life is due to unfair inequalities in living condition, wealth and opportunity, even those with all the popularity, money and fame in the world, and those who ‘bathe in love’, can feel lonely and isolated in a similar way to those who have lost someone close to them or have very little and ‘die in suffering’. In the final verse of this song I try and share the message that genuinely loving and treating others well ('opening your heart') can add so much fulfilment and meaning to life. Being able to appreciate all the amazing things you already have, like your loving family, and all the tiny little things like the blooming of flowers in spring or the birds in the sky, can help those who feel lost in life find something to live for.
