Theme Song

We heard My Declaration from the movie Inkheart at the theater in its initial release.   I knew I wanted a copy of it and so purchased the CD on the way home.  My girls love it, it speaks to our soul, and they know the words by heart!  Occasionally you’ll see us driving around  in the car, all singing our lungs out, and very often it will be this song!

I’m gonna be someone, I’m gonna give something,
I’m taking it on, I’m taking it on,
It’s gonna be my life, so I’m gonna live each day and each night,
Taking it on, I’m taking it on

’cause I can’t keep hiding, no I can’t keep hiding, and I can’t keep running away
So I’m gonna be stronger, and I’m gonna be better made, and I’m gonna give everything,
Just to bring me back again.

I’m gonna be a braver soul than this,
I’m gonna jump at all those many chances that I’ve missed,
I’m gonna live my life beyond all these fears and forms of cowardice that keep leading me on.
I’m gonna shine out like a beacon in the night,
I’m gonna wrap my fingers around the stars tonight,
’cause I’m taking it on, ’cause I’m taking it on…

No I can’t keep hiding, no I can’t keep hiding, no I can’t keep running away.
So I’m gonna be stronger, and I’m gonna be better made, and I’m gonna give everything,
Just to bring me back again.

So I’m gonna be stronger, I’m gonna be understood, and I’m gonna give everything
Just to bring me back again!

So I’m gonna be stronger, I’m gonna be understood, and I’m gonna give everything
Just to bring me back again!

’cause I can’t keep hiding, no I can’t keep hiding, and I can’t keep running away.

Tonight we purchased the movie for our collection. I was reminded how much I love this song and I decided to make another post about it! BTW, its a great movie. Rated PG and we recommend it to fam
