Anyway

God is great
But sometimes life ain’t good
And when I pray
It doesn’t always turn out like I think it should
But I do it anyway . . .

I heard those words in a debut video on CMT this past Saturday. It was the first time I had heard a new song by Martina McBride. When she sings, she sings with passion. She can pour out her soul through her excellent voice while singing at the top of her lungs. My husband and I have a CD in which she sings How Great Thou Art.
Martina debuted the song at the CMA Awards ceremony in 2006. I found the video and I have watched it more than once to study her techniques as she gives the song her very best while we hear it for the first time.


The words are simple with deep meaning (I love such irony.) In fact, usually if you read to lyrics a song you quickly lose interest but not so with this song.
I like this song because it also speaks about God and life in a real sense.
Anyway by Martina McBride (Martina McBride/Brett Warren/Brad Warren)
You can spend your whole life buildin’
Somethin’ from nothin’
One storm can come and blow it all away
. . .Build it anyway
You can chase a dream
That seems so outta reach
And you know it might not ever come your way
. . .Dream it anyway
(Chorus)
God is great
But sometimes life ain’t good
And when I pray
It doesn’t always turn out like I think it should
But I do it anyway
(Yeah) I do it anyway (yeah, yeah)
This world’s gone crazy
And it’s hard to believe
That tomorrow will be better than today
. . . Believe it anyway
You can love someone with all your heart
For all the right reasons
And in a moment they can choose to walk away
. . . Love ’em anyway
(Repeat Chorus)
You can pour your soul out singin’
A song you believe in
That tomorrow they’ll forget you ever sang
Sing it anyway
. . . Yeah, sing it anyway, yeah yeah
(Tag)
I sing
I dream
I love anyway, yeah
