Tuesday Tunes: There Isn't Anything You Can't Do


This is to honour the late Rita MacNeil who passed away last week. A talented singer-songwriter, she overcame many obstacles. Her gift of music has touched many around the world. My hope is that today you will be uplifted by this beautiful piece of music. I also hope that you know that even though you may stumble and fall, there isn't anything you can't do.


You were never more strong girl
You were never more alone
Once there was two, now there's
Just you
you're flying on your own

You were never more happy girl
You were never oh so blue
Once heartaches begin
Nobody wins
you're flying on your own

And when you know the wings you ride
Can keep you in the sky
There isn't anyone holding back you
First you stumble, then you fall
You reach out and you fly
There isn't anything that you can't do

You were never more wise girl
You were never more a fool
Once you break through
it's all up to you
you're flying on your own

You were never more together
You were never more apart
Once pieces of you were all that
You knew
you're flying on your own

And when you know the wings you ride
Can keep you in the sky
There isn't anyone holding back you
First you stumble, then you fall
You reach out and you fly
There isn't anything that you can't do

You were never more wise girl
You were never more a fool
Once you break through
it's all up to you
you're flying on your own 
-Rita MacNeil
