We all have song lyrics that we sing more wholeheartedly than others, lyrics that take us back to a specific moment in our lives, when those lyrics made us feel as if they had been written especially for us, because they were so in tune with the emotions we were feeling at the time.
As well as being able to awaken emotions in us, some song lyrics are so poetic that they become beautiful quotes. That’s why adding them to your yearbook can be a great idea!
Song lyrics that give your yearbook character
The relationship that is created with certain music lyrics is personal and, in fact, is never the same from one person to another. It all depends on how the lyrics are interpreted and the state of mind one is in at the time.
Nevertheless, some lyrics are universally interpreted in the same way by everyone. These song lyrics give hope, make you dance or deal with a theme that everyone can relate to… The aim of this list is to bring together these song lyrics, which you can then associate with a heading in your yearbook. In doing so, your students will create their own personal bond with these lyrics, by associating them with a specific moment in their lives… in your school.
