Musical Monday: The Circle of Life

Hello again Monday morning! Where do these weeks go?  Honestly. Here is a song that gives me goosebumps everytime I hear it. It portrays the beauty of the cyle of life and reminds me that when everyday life seems to be montonous at times, there is still beauty and, of course, Silver Linings!

When the movie The Lion King was released in 1994, it immediately became one of my all-time favorite movies! It was composed by Elton John with lyrics by Tim Rice, and Carmen Twillie and Lebo M. 10 years later and it has truly become a classic! Enjoy!

Here is a link to the music video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HwSKkKrUzUk 

Circle of Life- The Lion King 
From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There’s more to be seen than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be doneSome say eat or be eaten
Some say live and let live
But all are agreed as they join the stampede
You should never take more than you giveIn the circle of life
It’s the wheel of fortune
It’s the leap of faith
It’s the band of hope
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle, the circle of life

Some of us fall by the wayside
And some of us soar to the stars
And some of us sail through our troubles
And some have to live with the scars

There’s far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small on the endless round
