Etheridge, Melissa - Love Will Live Lyrics




I can smell the lies like a filthy net on me
All over my skin (All over my skin)
Suffocates my innocence, unwelcome hands on me
All over again (All over again)

There's a lie in the shadows saying I'm to blame
And it's feeding on my fear, my confusion and my shame
There's a lie in these years I've wasted on this pain
Things are gonna change right now

I did not shatter, did not crumble, didn't die
I have chosen to live
I'm no longer down, I am so much stronger now
I've got so much to give

I know that it's forgiveness that saves me from this fear
I'll get there some day (I'll get there some day)
I'm clear that it's this moment that gets me outta here
And I know the way (And I know the way)

There's a lie in the shadows saying I'm to blame
And it's feeding on my fear, my confusion and my shame
There's a lie in these years I've wasted on this pain
Things are gonna change right now

I did not shatter, did not crumble, didn't die
I have chosen to live
I'm no longer down, I am so much stronger now
I've got so much to give

Not my fault, it's my time (Oh)
Love will live, love will love
Love will live, love will love
My love will live, my love will love, oh

I did not shatter, did not crumble, didn't die
I have chosen to live
I'm no longer down, I am so much stronger now
I've got so much to give

I have chosen to live

    Empowering New Anthem by Melissa Etheridge!

    If you are a survivor of anything, specially sexual abuse, sexual assault, sexual harassment, etc., please listen to Melissa Etheridge’s empowering anthem “Love Will Live” from her new album “The Medicine Show”. It is a beautiful tribute to, and perfect reminder of, the resilience of the human spirit.

    ~~~

    Patricia Elaine, on Facebook: “Love Will Live should be the theme song of the #MeToo movement. As a Mental Health Therapist who works with survivors of sexual assault and adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse, you have encapsulated the emotions felt, and the will to survive. Amazing.”

    Tina Krempasky, on Facebook: "This is one of my favorite songs....Listen to the lyrics....it addresses all pain and sorrow and fear and secrets and everything that keeps us down.....it's not just about the #Metoo movement....so much more than that....it's for all of us who have suffered from loss, death, cancer, abuse, sadness...you name it....this songs speaks to those times.....and offer up hope and togetherness....listen....listen closely to the words....she's amazing.....music is healing"

    ~~~~~

    Love WILL Live!
