Hi Friends:

As Host and Producer of Alive with Clive – The TV Show Where Today’s Top Singer-Songwriters Thrive, I love to listen to songs by world-renowned singer-songwriters with songs on the charts, and to songs by singer-songwriters featured on Alive with Clive, that deal with the impact of the choices we make on our journey through life.

One such song that has become a huge hit is the song, “7 Years,” by Lukas Graham, the top band in the Denmark.

Lukas Graham, 7 Years, Quote

Here is the music video for “7 Years” by Lukas Graham:

And here are the lyrics:

Lyrics to ‘7 Years’ by Lukas Graham


Lukas Graham | “7 Years”


Once I was seven years old, my mama told me,
“Go make yourself some friends or you’ll be lonely.”
Once I was seven years old


It was a big big world, but we thought we were bigger
Pushing each other to the limits, we were learning quicker
By eleven smoking herb and drinking burning liquor
Never rich so we were out to make that steady figure


Once I was eleven years old, my daddy told me,
“Go get yourself a wife or you’ll be lonely.”
Once I was eleven years old


I always had that dream, like my daddy before me
So I started writing songs, I started writing stories
Something about that glory just always seemed to bore me
‘Cause only those I really love will ever really know me


Once I was twenty years old, my story got told
Before the morning sun, when life was lonely
Once I was twenty years old


I only see my goals, I don’t believe in failure
‘Cause I know the smallest voices, they can make it major
I got my boys with me, at least those in favor
And if we don’t meet before I leave, I hope I’ll see you later


Once I was twenty years old, my story got told
I was writing about everything I saw before me
Once I was twenty years old


Soon we’ll be thirty years old, our songs have been sold
We’ve traveled around the world and we’re still roaming
Soon we’ll be thirty years old


I’m still learning about life
My woman brought children for me
So I can sing them all my songs
And I can tell them stories
Most of my boys are with me
Some are still out seeking glory
And some I had to leave behind
My brother, I’m still sorry


Soon I’ll be sixty years old, my daddy got sixty-one
Remember life, and then your life becomes a better one
I made a man so happy when I wrote a letter once
I hope my children come and visit once or twice a month


Soon I’ll be sixty years old, will I think the world is cold
Or will I have a lot of children who can warm me?
Soon I’ll be sixty years old


Soon I’ll be sixty years old, will I think the world is cold
Or will I have a lot of children who can warm me?
Soon I’ll be sixty years old


Once I was seven years old, my mama told me,
“Go make yourself some friends or you’ll be lonely.”
Once I was seven years old


Once I was seven years old

I was reminded of “7 Years” when I created the video clip for the song, “25,” by Elaine Romanelli, a recent guest on Alive with Clive, in which she reflects upon the different stages of life at different ages.

Here is the video clip of “25” by Elaine Romanelli on Alive with Clive:

And here are the lyrics:

Lyrics to ’25’ by Elaine Romanelli


Elaine Romanelli | “25”


25 feels like nothing to me
I wish you’d stop pointing out
It’s a quarter century
Come and dance with abandon,
Be messy, and free
Here’s to life as a fresh 25


By 35 I’ll be working like crazy
Running some kind of company
And saving the planet
I’ll have moved from the city
To a town that’s more lazy
I’ll have a backyard when I’m 35


By 45 I think I’ll have it made
Or else I’ll be back in school
In the 29th grade
I’ll have married my true love
We might raise up some babies
But I’ll still be sassy when I’m 45


Though what if life doesn’t follow
My big plans
What if unforeseen barriers daunt me
Will my internal compass
Keep guiding me back
Or will the paths I abandon
Still haunt me?


Some day I’ll be retiring from…
Something
When I get that gold watch
I hope you’ll all still know me
We’ll shimmy and shake
With our arthritic knees
Like we did when I turned 25


‘Cause all I know is I love to dance
To be lost in the music and motion
And one thing that won’t change
Is I cherish my friends
Like they’re golden


25 feels like nothing to me
So let’s all stop pointing out
It’s quarter century
Come and dance with abandon
Be messy, and free
I don’t care how old you are
Pretend to be me
Let’s be young and immortal, and joyful
And we will remember
The rest of our lives
How it felt when I turned 25
When you turned 25 … we turned 25
How it felt when I turned 25

After reflecting upon these two songs, I found myself thinking about the song, “My Creation,” by Jeneen Terrana, since I saw her perform this song again at an event on April 22, 2016, at Life The Place To Be in Ardsley, New York.

As mentioned is a Press Release I published about “My Creation” several years ago:

“The lyrics to Jeneen Terrana’s song, My Creation, emphasize that we all have within us the power to choose what we want to create for our lives without being shackled by decisions of the past, and themes of love and peace, as well as being courageous and fully self expressed, reverberate throughout the song. . . .”

In the song, Jeneen sings:

I read somewhere that our lives are the way they are
Because of the choices we’ve made or failed to make
I read somewhere else
That hell is denying who we really are inside
Here’s a quote for you:
“Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around”
That’s from Vanilla Sky
The good news is change is a constant
Which way a thing changes
Well, that depends on you, and what you choose

Here is the video clip of “My Creation” by Jeneen Terrana on Alive with Clive:

And here are the lyrics:

Lyrics to ‘My Creation’ by Jeneen Terrana


Jeneen Terrana | “My Creation”


I’m finding out that life is not so bad
It’s the hardest thing to see
That I haven’t really lived yet
So afraid to step off of that ledge
I compromised the dream
To believe what someone else said


Well, the time is now, the place is here
I’ll create some new rules
Then go ahead and break them
I’ve opened up my eyes
Took a look around
It’s my world, my creation


Sometimes I feel so old in this skin
Sometimes I feel so good in this skin
At times I’d like to shed my skin
And get on with it


Well what will I choose today
Will I be haunted by words
I heard someone else say
Or open up my heart, listen to my soul
It’s my world, my creation


I read somewhere that our lives are the way they are
Because of the choices we’ve made or failed to make
I read somewhere else
That hell is denying who we really are inside


Here’s a quote for you:
“Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around”
That’s from Vanilla Sky
The good news is change is a constant
Which way a thing changes
Well, that depends on you, and what you choose


I choose to feel love today
I choose to be peace today
I choose to love full out, live full out
Take a chance and step out
I choose not to play it safe


I choose absolute vulnerability
I choose sheer transparency
I choose to be me
I choose to let go and be free


I choose a heart so open
You can see the love pour out
I choose to wear my wisdom like a coat
I choose my power
I choose to sing ’till
Every cell in my body cries out


This is my world, it’s my creation
This is your world, this is my world
It’s our world, our Creation

Now the theme running through all these songs, really, is that our lives are going to turn out the way they turn out based on the choices we make.

While we might receive advice from people around us or we might rely on our own internal guidance system or intuition, ultimately the outcomes we experience in life will depend on the choices we make.

And the choices we make will be determined by the thoughts we think.

So, if we want to fulfill our dreams in life, we must think the thoughts that will enable us to attract into our lives the ideas, people and circumstances to cause the possibilities we invent for our lives to become realities.

Buddha

When the movie, The Secret, was released by Rhonda Byrne in 2006, it attracted a lot of interest and attention because it sought to show that we can create what we want for our lives with the aid of the Law of Attraction.

With 20/20 hindsight, though, it turns out that there is a lot more to the Law of Attraction and manifesting than meets the eye.

In fact, I have since learned from Bob Proctor, who was featured in The Secret, that there are several additional secrets you must know to turn possibilities into realities.
