Scott Leger is a singer/songwriter for the band Wideawake out of Austin. I met him about 8 years ago or so while he was playing his acoustic on the deck of a Starbucks. Over the years I've been to many shows and even brought my mom to a few. After I went to Chicago, she became better friends him and the band than I had ever been. He even played at my mom's 50th birthday party this past November. If you ever have the opportunity to see him or his band, you should definitely go.
He wrote a very special song about his friend Sharon who had cancer. My mom and I went to the recording of the video. I've posted the video and put the lyrics below. It's very moving, have a tissue on hand. Everyday we have to remember to LiveStrong, not just for our loved one(s) with cancer, but for ourselves too. It's kinda like on an airplane when you put on the mask for yourself first then help someone else. You're no good to someone if you're not there and strong enough to help them. (Thought I'd put in a little humor...very little, I know). Always keep smiling. = )
Maybe Tonight, Maybe Tomorrow lyrics
I heard the news today. It came out of nowhere. I wish I could run away,but where would I go? Is this my destiny? Something so unfair... What will become of me? God only knows.
And they say the road to heaven might lead us back through hell. Maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow, we will win this fight and bury this sorrow. We're so alive, still holding on, not ready to die, so we LIVESTRONG.
My pride is left for dead, as my world gets shaken. The thoughts inside my head are so hard to control. I am staring down the unknown, but one thing is certain: you could break my body, but you will never break my soul.
And they say the road to heaven might leads us back through hell, but we're holding on for more than stories to tell. Maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow, we will win this fight and bury this sorrow. We're so alive, still holding on, not ready to die, so we LIVESTRONG.
