    I'd never heard this song before and came across it on a friend's video on youtube. Sorry if I didn't post it in the right place, wasn't sure where it went...
    It makes me feel so much better so I thought I'd share it:

    Be Strong - Delta Goodrem

    Your swimming up stream
    in oceans of blue
    Do you feel like your sinking?
    Are you sick of the rain after all you've been through?
    Well I know what you're thinking
    When you can't take it
    You can make it
    Sometime soon I know you'll see

    'cause when you're in your darkest hour
    And all of the light just fades away
    When you're like a single flower whose colours have turned to shades of gray
    Well hang on and be strong

    Whe're taking each step one day at a time
    You can't loose your spirit
    Let live and let live forget and forgive
    It's all how you see it
    And just remember keep it together
    Don't you know you're never alone

    'cause when you're in your darkest hour
    And all of the light just fades away
    When you're like a single flower whose colours have turned to shades of gray
    Well hang on, and be strong

    No you're not defeated
    And soon you'll be smiling once again
    Then you won't have to feel it
    Let it go with the wind
    Time passes us by
    And know that you're allowed to cry

    'cause when you're in your darkest hour
    And all of the light just fades away
    When you're like a single flower whose colours have turned to shades of gray
    Well hang on and be strong

    I got much of that! Really inspirational and uplifting!

    Paul Stanley - Live to win

    Frustrated, degraded, down before you're done
    Rejection, depression, can't get what you want
    You ask me how I make my way
    You ask me everywhere and why
    You hang on every word I say
    But the truth sounds like a lie

    (chorus)
    Live to win, 'till you die, 'till the light dies in your eyes
    Live to win, take it all, just keep fighting till you fall

    Obsessive, compulsive, suffocate your mind
    Confusion, delusions, kill your dreams in time
    You ask me how I took the pain
    Crawled up from my lowest low
    Step by step and day by day
    'Till there's one last breath to go

    (chorus)
    Live to win, 'till you die, 'till the light dies in your eyes
    Live to win, take it all, just keep fighting till you fall

    Day by day, kickin' all the way, I'm not cavin' in
    Let another round begin, live to win
    Yeah, live, yeah, win

    (chorus)
    Llive to win, 'till you die, 'till the light dies in your eyes
    Live to win, take it all, just keep fighting 'till you fall

    Day by day, kickin' all the way, I'm not cavin' in
    Let another round begin, live to win
    Live to win
    Live to win
    Yeah, live, yeah, win

    Whitesnake - Here I go again

    I don't know where I'm going
    But, I sure know where I've been
    Hanging on the promises
    In songs of yesterday
    An' I've made up my mind,
    I ain't wasting no more time
    But, here I go again
    Here I go again

    Tho' I keep searching for an answer,
    I never seem to find what I'm looking for
    Oh Lord, I pray
    You give me strength to carry on,
    'Cos I know what it means
    To walk along the lonely street of dreams

    An' here I go again on my own
    Goin' down the only road I've ever known,
    Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
    An' I've made up my mind
    I ain't wasting no more time

    I'm just another heart in need of rescue,
    Waiting on love's sweet charity
    An' I'm gonna hold on
    For the rest of my days,
    'Cos I know what it means
    To walk along the lonely street of dreams

    An' here I go again on my own
    Goin' down the only road I've ever known,
    Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
    An' I've made up my mind
    I ain't wasting no more time

    But, here I go again,
    Here I go again,
    Here I go again,
    Here I go...

    An' I've made up my mind,
    I ain't wasting no more time

    An' here I go again on my own
    Goin' down the only road I've ever known,
    Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
    'Cos I know what it means
    To walk along the lonely street of dreams

    An' here I go again on my own
    Goin' down the only road I've ever known,
    Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
    An' I've made up my mind
    I ain't wasting no more time...

    But, here I go again,
    Here I go again,
    Here I go again,
    Here I go,
    Here I go again...


    Saxon - Never surrender


    I was born on the back streets
    On the rotten side of town
    I never had me nothin'
    Just people puttin' me down
    Living on the dark side
    Across the railroad track
    Leaving wasn't easy
    But I'm never going back

    Never surrender
    When you're up against the world
    Never surrender
    Stand up fight them all
    Never surrender
    When you're up against the world
    Never surrender
    Stand up fight them all

    I'm sticking in the fast lane
    I never wanna quit
    I'm taking all my chances
    I'm gonna take 'em quick
    I started at the bottom
    But I'm headed to the top
    Ain't nobody gonna hold me back
    'Cause I'm never gonna stop

    Never surrender
    When you're up against the world
    Never surrender
    Stand up fight them all

    Never surrender
    When you're up against the world
    Never surrender
    Stand up fight them all

    I was born on the back streets
    On the rotten side of town
    I never had me nothin'
    Just people puttin' me down
    I'm living on the darkside
    Across the railroad track
    Leaving wasn't easy
    But I'm never going back

    Never surrender
    When you're up against the world
    Never surrender
    Stand up fight them all

    Skillet - Whispers in the dark

    Despite the lies that you're making
    Your love is mine for the taking
    My love is just waiting
    To turn your tears to roses

    Despite the lies that you're making
    Your love is mine for the taking
    My love is just waiting
    To turn your tears to roses

    I will be the one that's gonna hold you
    I will be the one that you run to
    My love is a burning, consuming fire

    No, you'll never be alone
    When darkness comes I'll light the night with stars
    Hear the whispers in the dark
    No, you'll never be alone
    When darkness comes you know I'm never far
    Hear the whispers in the dark
    Whispers in the dark

    You feel so lonely and ragged
    You lay there broken and naked
    My love is just waiting
    To clothe you in crimson roses

    I will be the one that's gonna find you
    I will be the one that's gonna guide you
    My love is a burning, consuming fire

    No, you'll never be alone
    When darkness comes I'll light the night with stars
    Hear the whispers in the dark
    No, you'll never be alone
    When darkness comes you know I'm never far
    Hear the whispers in the dark

    No, you'll never be alone
    When darkness comes I'll light the night with stars
    Hear the whispers in the dark
    No, you'll never be alone
    When darkness comes you know I'm never far
    Hear the whispers in the dark
    Whispers in the dark
    Whispers in the dark
    Whispers in the dark
