CANCIÓN DEL MES: ABRIL - 2015: RITA ORA - GRATEFUL (B.S.O. BEYOND THE LIGHTS)

Escuché este tema por primera vez en la pasada ceremonia de los Oscars, donde estaba nominada a Mejor Canción por la peli "Beyond the lights" de 2014.

No le presté mucha atención en ese momento hasta que este mes me la he vuelto a encontrar de casualidad y al leer la letra me he sentido tan identificada con ella que no puedo evitar emocionarme y sentir algo dentro mí muy fuerte cada vez que la escucho. Me hace recordar muchas cosas y ser consciente de que lo que soy ahora se lo debo a todo lo que he vivido, tanto bueno como malo.

Y tambien me recuerda a esa frase de Barry Stevens que tengo puesta en el blog y tanto me gusta...

"Si por vivir todo lo bueno tuve que vivir todo lo malo, no renuncio a nada de lo malo por no perder nada de lo bueno"

Está interpretada por la joven británica Rita Ora y escrita por Diane Warren, famosa compositora norteamericana de temazos como "I don't want to miss a thing" de Aerosmith o mi amada "There you'll be" de Faith Hill.




There were a lot of tears I had to cry through
A lot of battles left me battered and bruised
Now I was shattered to have my heart ripped in two
I was broken, I was broken
There were a lot of times I stumbled and crushed
When I was only years down to my last chance
So many times when I was so convinced that
I was over, I was over
But I had to fall, yeah
To rise above it all

I'm grateful for the star
Made me appreciate the sun
I'm grateful for the wrong ones
Made me appreciate the right ones
I'm grateful for the pain
For everything that made me break
I'm thankful for all my scars
'Cause they only made my heart
Grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful
Grateful

I was thinking I was trying to end out
From all the pain that was weighing me down
I pulled it together and I pulled myself out
Learned a lesson, learned a lesson
That there's a life you gotta go through hell, yes
But that's what got me strong, I got no regrets
And I've got only love, got no bitterness
I count my blessings, count my blessings, yeah
I'm proud of every tear, yeah
'Cause they got me here

I'm grateful for the star
Made me appreciate the sun
I'm grateful for the wrong ones
Made me appreciate the right ones
I'm grateful for the pain
For everything that made me break
I'm thankful for all my scars
'Cause they only made my heart
Grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful
Grateful

There is nothing I would change
Not even one mistake I made
I got lost, found myself, found my way
I'm grateful for the star
Made me appreciate the sun
I'm grateful for the wrong ones
Made me appreciate the right ones
I'm grateful for the pain
For everything that made me break
I'm thankful for all my scars
'Cause they only made my heart
Grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful
Grateful

You know that I'm grateful
You know that I care
No time for the wrong ones
I'll always be there
Grateful
Grateful, grateful
I'm grateful
Grateful, grateful
Oh, I am
Grateful
Oh, I am grateful
