Speechless

When I was a kid, I LOVED watching Disney movies! I remember really liking the 1992 animated film Aladdin. The late Robin Williams was SO HILARIOUS in that film! 😀

To be honest, I treasure those animated Disney movies to the extent that I tend to put off seeing the live action remakes. 😉

I finally saw the 2019 live action Aladdin, and I am happy to say that I LOVED it!

Will Smith cracked me up so much when he played Genie. 🙂

And, I LOVED Mena Massoud as Aladdin and Naomi Scott as Jasmine. They were perfectly cast!

I really liked that this film wasn’t just a live action version of the animated film I grew up with. They added things to the new film and changed some things, and I LOVED those additions and changes! ❤ (In case you haven’t seen it, I don’t want to spoil anything. 😉 )

Something I really enjoyed in the new Aladdin was the song “Speechless.”

Lyrics:

Here comes a wave
Meant to wash me away
A tide that is taking me under
Swallowing sand
Left with nothing to say
My voice drowned out in the thunder
But I won’t cry
And I won’t start to crumble
Whenever they try
To shut me or cut me down
I won’t be silenced
You can’t keep me quiet
Won’t tremble when you try it
All I know is I won’t go speechless
‘Cause I’ll breathe
When they try to suffocate me
Don’t you underestimate me
‘Cause I know that I won’t go speechless
Written in stone
Every rule, every word
Centuries old and unbending

Stay in your place
Better seen and not heard
But now that story is ending
‘Cause I
I cannot start to crumble
So come on and try
Try to shut me and cut me down
I won’t be silenced
You can’t keep me quiet
Won’t tremble when you try it
All I know is I won’t go speechless
Speechless
Let the storm in
I cannot be broken
No, I won’t live unspoken
‘Cause I know that I won’t go speechless
Try to lock me in this cage
I won’t just lay me down and die
I will take these broken wings
And watch me burn across the sky
Hear the echoes saying I
Won’t be silenced
Though you want to see me tremble when you try it
All I know is I won’t go speechless
Speechless
‘Cause I’ll breathe
When they try to suffocate me
Don’t you underestimate me
‘Cause I know that I won’t go speechless
All I know is I won’t go speechless
Speechless

I was really moved by the song and felt that so many people can relate to it. ❤ Can you?

I hope this week’s song inspires you to LIVE and SPEAK your TRUTH! ❤

Wishing you well! ❤
