I Hope You Dance by Leann Womack
I like this song...and it may not seem like much. But it helps me realize I should not let having Diabetes hold me back from anything. I can do anything that anybody else can do, though it may involve some extra steps.
This is the first one I could think of....
"I get knocked down but I get up again, you're never gonna keep me down" Chumbawumba
Tracks of My Tears, by SMokey Robinson
something by the sexiest diabetic singer alive....Brett Michaels
"Badlands" or "The Promised Land" by Bruce Springsteen
Spirit In The Sky by Norman Greenbaum
How about, I Will Survive? (I believe that's a Gloria Gaynor tune?)
Pray For Grace
By Michael Franti & Spearhead

Why must I feel like this today?
I'm a soldier but afraid sometimes
To face the things that may
Block the sun from shinin' rays
And fill my life with shades of grey
But still I long to find a way
So today I pray for grace

Oh sister, that is a great one! I am teaching my niece old Beatle songs, but I think those lyrics would be too complex. Right now we're working on Good Day SUnshine and Love Me Do.
......but it represents me and diabetes a bit.
