40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year. You can spend your whole life building something from nothing One storm can come and blow it all away Build it anyway You can chase a dream that seems so out of reach and you know it might not ever come your way Dream it anyway Chorus: God is great, but sometimes life ain't good And when I pray it doesn't always turn out like I think it should But I do it anyway, I do it anyway This world's gone crazy and it's hard to believe that tomorrow will be better than today Believe it anyway You can love someone with all your heart, for all the right reasons, and in a moment they can choose to walk away Love 'em anyway Chorus You can pour your soul out singing a song you believe in that tomorrow they'll forget you ever sang Sing it anyway, yeah sing it anyway I sing, I dream, I love, anyway
