eyes on the prize

There are not too many movies that I have seen that could watch everyday....but there is definitely one. 

Green Card
Andie MacDowell and Gerard Depardieu
1990

There is a song at the end of the movie {and the beginning of the credits} that really sums up the way I have been feeling lately and with how my life has been going. It's sung by the Emmaus Group Singers and it's called "Eyes On The Prize". Here are the lyrics. 





Last night I had a dream,
About a home that was so bright,
I don’t know why,
It has to be a dream.
Why can’t I,
Where will I,
God help me,
Help me find a home.
Just keep your eyes on the prize,
Don’t be dismayed,
Don’t be dismayed.
Deep in your heart,
You must believe:
Everything is gonna be alright,
Everything is gonna be alright,
Everything is gonna be alright someday!
Sometimes it’s hard,
Sometimes it’s cold.
Sometimes I’m in,
Sometimes I’m out.
No! I haven’t had much to eat,
Lord knows I haven’t had much sleep!
So keep your eyes on the prize,
Don’t be dismayed,
Don’t be dismayed.
Deep in your heart,
You must believe:
Everything is gonna be alright,
Everything is gonna be alright,
Everything is gonna be alright someday!
We shall overcome
We shall overcome.
Everything is gonna be alright,
Someday!
