    LET’S DEFEAT THE DISTANCE

    Romantic relationships especially ones in LDRs (Long Distance Relationships) came first to mind when I saw the theme this week. Being in one at the moment I decided not to go through that context as I might well up. Kidding. LOL

    Then a request for a cover of Gabrielle’s Rise came from @celticheartbeat.
    I remembered how lovely the song was after looking it up. You see, whenever Gabrielle is mentioned, the song "Out of Reach" naturally springs to mind. The chords were in my favour as well, and I've finally found something to present this week. Woooop!

    MY TAKE

    By overcoming a toxic, unhealthy relationship and making the decision to pass the distance from not being all right to being okay, we may be able to prevent losing ourselves completely in sorrow and bitterness. It's never easy to imagine how we can succeed, but the important thing is to make the decision to rise and succeed while remaining persistent.

    ABOUT THE SONG

    Aiming to encourage listeners to realize that with perseverance, an excellent outcome is possible, Gabrielle's Rise tells the story of how she got back up after her life fell apart. Looking more closely, it appears that Gabrielle did approach Bob Dylan and request permission to utilize parts of his song, which Bob Dylan happily agreed to for the first time. That explains why the song's strongly similar of Bob Dylan's Knockin' On Heaven's Door, particularly the beginning part. To be honest, If I had not read about it, I wouldn’t have known.

    Lyrics

    I know that it's over
    But I can't believe we're through
    They say that time's a healer, yeah
    And I'm better without you
    It's gonna take time, I know
    But I'll get over you
    Look at my life
    Look at my heart
    I have seen them fall apart
    Now I'm ready to rise again
    Just look at my hopes
    Look at my dreams
    I'm building bridges from these scenes
    Now I'm ready to rise again

    Caught up in my thinking, yeah
    Like a prisoner in my mind
    You pose so many questions
    That the truth was hard to find
    I better think twice I know
    That I'll get over you

    Look at my life
    Look at my heart
    I have seen them fall apart
    Now I'm ready to rise again
    Just look at my hopes
    Look at my dreams
    I'm building bridges from these scenes
    Now I'm ready to rise again

    Much time has passed between us, hmm
    Do you still think of me at all?
    My world of broken promises
    You won't catch me when I fall

    Look at my life
    Look at my heart
    I have seen them fall apart
    And now I'm ready to rise again
    Just look at my hopes
    Look at my dreams
    I'm building bridges from these scenes
    Now I'm ready to rise again

    Yes, I'm gonna rise
    Gonna make it alright
    I'm gonna be who I wanna be
    Yeah baby, yeah, yeah

    I'm gonna make it alright

    I'm gonna make it alright...

    Thank you @celticheartbeat. If it were not for your request, I wouldn’t have remembered this beautiful song.

    Thank you @karlex77 for the wonderful theme this week.
