Love Is In Da Blog 18 ~ My Favourite Queer Love Song – “Proud”

From 2000 – 2005 I was obsessed with ShowTime’s American version of “Queer as Folk” . There were so many moments throughout that just reinforced the lyrics to Heather Small’s “Proud” from 2005. The song was re-released after it was used in the London 2012 Olympics Bid. This music video contains footage from the Olympics Bid which includes many famous actors, presenters and sports people from the UK.
What I have done today to make me feel proud is to remind myself of the self truth that I am an Alcoholic and I cannot do it on my own because I have been down that road and it never works!!!
Lyrics
I look into the window of my mind
Reflections of the fears I know I’ve left behind
I step out of the ordinary
I can feel my soul ascending
I am on my way
Can’t stop me now
And you can do the same
What have you done today to make you feel proud?
It’s never too late to try
What have you done today to make you feel proud?
You could be so many people
If you make that break for freedom
What have you done today to make you feel proud?
Still so many answers I don’t know
Realize that to question is how we grow
So I step out of the ordinary
I can feel my soul ascending
I am on my way
Can’t stop me now
And you can do the same
What have you done today to make you feel proud?
It’s never too late to try
What have you done today to make you feel proud?
You could be so many people
If you make that break for freedom
What have you done today to make you feel proud?
We need a change
Do it today
I can feel my spirit rising
We need a change
So do it today
Cause I can see a clear horizon
What have you done today to make you feel proud?
So what have you done today to make you feel proud?
Cause you could be so many people
If you make that break for freedom
So what have you done today to make you feel proud?
What have you done today to make you feel proud?
What have you done today
You could be so many people?
Just make that break for freedom
So what have you done today to make you feel proud?
Songwriters: Heather Small / Peter Vettese
