Lyrics To Live By

This is a small, personal project of mine. I’ve been in a very bad place mentally for a long time now, and I feel like I need to focus more on the positive things in my life. Apart from my loved ones who help me every day, music is one of the things that makes me happy and have helped me through my life.

This is why I wanted to make a list of all the positive song lyrics that makes me want to be the best person I can, every time I listen to them.
The lyrics are all from melodic/power/folk/melodic death/symphony metal, because those are the genres I enjoy the most.

The songs and lines I choose are based on what the lyrics and music makes me feel.

I understand why not everybody might agree with these choices. But please refrain from reblogging with negative comments or tags, as this is a personal project, which is intended to make me happy and feel motivated to live my life.

Feel free to reblog the list if some of these lines inspires you, too.

Please be aware that I might update the list from time to time - and if you know of any positive metal songs, please feel free to give me a heads up in my ask box!

stop for the love of god
