Music Prompt #14: OneRepublic – “I Lived” #amwriting #musicchallenge

This morning I wanted to inspire you all. I have found myself searching for new sources of inspiration in my life and lately, I have found a lot of that in music. I have one of my favorite OneRepublic songs for you today called “I lived.” 

With every broken bone, I swear I lived.”

According to Wikipedia, “OneRepublic is an American pop rock band formed in Colorado Springs, Colorada in 2002 by lead vocalist Ryan Tedder and guitarist Zach Filkins. It also consists of guitarist Drew Brown, bassist and cellist Brent Kutzle, and drummer Eddie Fisher. 

 It wasn’t until 2007 that OneRepublic released their debut album, Dreaming Out Loud. Its lead single, “Apologize”, was notably remixed by Timbaland, becoming a huge international success, The second single, “Stop and Stare,” mirrored its predecessor’s success. 

 The band’s second album, Waking Up (2009), produced the singles “All the Right Moves”, “Secrets”, “Marchin On”, and “Good Life.” 

OneRepublic’s third album, Native (2013), became the band’s first top ten album on the Billboard 200, and highest charting album to date, charting at number four. The lead single, “If I Lose Myself” was followed by the smash hit single, “Counting Stars,” the band’s most successful single to date. 

On October 7, 2016, OneRepublic released Oh My My, their fourth studio album, which featured a number of collaborators, including Cassius, Peter Gabriel, and Santigold. It was preceded by the singles “Wherever I Go”, released on May 13, 2016, and “Kids”, released on August 12, 2016. It was recognized as a change in their sound in contrast to previous albums. In 2017, the band released the singles “No Vacancy”, “Truth to Power”, and “Rich Love” for their current album (Wikipedia.com).”

One Republic – “I Lived”

*****

Hope when you take that jump, you don’t fear the fall

Hope when the water rises, you built a wall

Hope when the crowd screams out, they’re screaming your name

Hope if everybody runs, you choose to stay

Hope that you fall in love, and it hurts so bad

The only way you can know is give it all you have

And I hope that you don’t suffer but take the pain

Hope when the moment comes, you’ll say…

*****

I, I did it all

I, I did it all

I owned every second that this world could give

I saw so many places, the things that I did

With every broken bone, I swear I lived

*****
Hope that you spend your days, but they all add up

And when that sun goes downhope you raise your cup

Oh, I wish that I could witness all your joy and all your pain

But until my moment comes, I’ll say…

*****

I, I did it all

I, I did it all

I owned every second that this world could give

I saw so many places, the things that I did

With every broken bone, I swear I lived
Oh [4x]

With every broken bone, I swear I lived.

With every broken bone, I swear I…

*****

I, I did it all

I, I did it all

I owned every second that this world could give

I saw so many places, the things that I did

With every broken bone, I swear I lived.
Oh [4x]

I swear I lived. Ohhh [2x]

*****
