    Default Enneagram songs

    A friend shared these with me a few days ago. They are songs written for each of the nine types. I like them.

    Hold on for a minute, 'cause I believe that we can fix this over time
    That every imperfection is a lie
    Or at least an interruption

    Now hold on, let me finish
    No, I'm not saying perfect exists in this life
    But we'll only know for certain if we try

    I... I wanna sing a song worth singing
    I... Write an anthem worth repeating
    I... I wanna feel the transformation
    A melody of reformation

    The list goes on forever of all the ways I could be better in my mind
    As if I could earn God's favor given time
    Or at least congratulations

    Now I have learned my lesson
    The price of this so-called perfection is everything
    I spend my whole life searching desperately
    To find out grace requires nothing of me

    I... I wanna sing a song worth singing
    I... Write an anthem worth repeating
    I... I wanna feel the transformation
    A melody of reformation

    I hold it all more loosely, and yet somehow much more dearly
    'Cause I spend my whole life searching desperately
    To find out that grace requires nothing
    Grace requires nothing of me


     



    Sweetheart, you look a little tired
    When did you last eat?
    Come in and make yourself right at home
    Stay as long as you need
    Tell me, is something wrong?
    If something's wrong you can count on me
    You know I'll take my heart clean apart
    If it helps yours beat

    It's okay if you can't find the words
    Let me take your coat and this weight off of your shoulders

    Like a force to be reckoned with
    A mighty ocean or a gentle kiss
    I will love you with every single thing I have
    Like a tidal wave I'll make a mess
    Or calm waters if that serves you best
    I will love you without any strings attached

    It's okay if you can't catch your breath
    You can take the oxygen straight out of my own chest

    I know exactly how the rule goes
    Put my mask on first
    No, I don't want to talk about myself
    Tell me where it hurts
    I just want to build you up, build you up
    'Til you're good as new
    And maybe one day, I will get around
    To fixing myself, too

    I don't even know where to start
    Already tired of trying to recall when it all fell apart
    I just want to love you, to love you, to love you well
    I just want to learn how, somehow to be loved myself

    Like a force to be reckoned with
    A mighty ocean or a gentle kiss
    I will love you without any strings attached
    What a privilege it is to love
    A great honor to hold you up

    Like a force to be reckoned with
    A mighty ocean or a gentle kiss
    I will love you with every single thing I have
    Like a tidal wave I'll make a mess
    Or calm waters if that serves you best
    I will love you without any strings attached
    I will love you without a single string attached


     



    Maybe I've done enough,
    And your golden child grew up.
    Maybe this trophy isn't real love
    And with or without it, I'm good enough.

    Maybe I've done enough,
    Finally catching up.
    For the first time I see an image of my brokenness
    Utterly worthy of love.

    Maybe I've done enough.

    I finally see myself,
    Through the eyes of no one else.
    It's so exhausting on this silver screen
    Where I play the role of anyone but me.

    I finally see myself,
    Unabridged and overwhelmed,
    A mess of a story I'm ashamed to tell,
    But I'm slowly learning how to break this spell.

    And I finally see myself.

    Now I only want what's real
    To let my heart feel what it feels.
    Gold, silver or bronze hold no value here,
    Where work and rest are equally revered.

    I only want what's real
    I set aside the highlight reel,
    And leave my greatest failures on display with an asterisk;
    Worthy of love anyway.

    I'm turning out the lights
    To remember how to see
    Until a renaissance takes place
    And resuscitates the color of paint and divinity

    As if God hid the building blocks
    Of every beautiful thing
    In this game of hide and seek
    I can't help but think that ordinary has swallowed the key

    Bodies fashioned out of dirt and dust
    For a moment we get to be glorious
    Ice sculptures adorned in light
    Sand castles built tall in between the tides

    Maybe I'm hiding behind metaphor
    Maybe my heart needs to break to be sure
    One day I'll wear it all on my sleeve
    The insignificant with the sacred unique

    But I've fallen in love with a ghost
    And I lost my balance when I needed it most
    This blurry photograph is proof
    Of what I'm not sure but it feels like truth

    I'm stuck swimming in shadows down here
    It's been forever since I came up for air
    Flashlight in hand determined to find
    Authenticity only poetry could even begin to try to describe

    Bodies fashioned out of dirt and dust
    For a moment we get to be glorious
    Get to be glorious
    Get to be glorious

    What if we already are
    Who we've been dying to become
    In certain light I can plainly see
    A reflection of magnificence
    Hidden in you
    Maybe even in me


     



    I want to watch the universe expand.
    I want to break it into pieces small enough to understand,
    And put it all back together again
    In the quiet of my private collection.
    It feels like an out of body experience—
    But something gets lost from a safe distance
    And now I can't put my mind to rest,
    And I can't help but second guess
    Living behind this one-way mirror.
    I'm hypnotized by this anomaly.
    Such strange uncharted territory—
    A white flag waves in the dark between my head and my heart.
    My armor falls apart,
    As if I could let myself be seen, even deeply known.
    Like I was already brave enough to let go.
    And now I want to generously lose
    This energy that I've been hanging onto so desperately.
    I finally feel the universe expand—
    It's hidden in heartbeats, exhales
    And in the hope of open hands.


     



    I had the most vivid dream
    My feet had left the ground
    I was floating to heaven
    But I could only look down
    My mind was heavy
    Running ragged with worst case scenarios
    Emergency exits and the distance below
    I woke up so worried that the angels let go

    Oh God I'm so tired
    Of being afraid

    What would it feel like
    To put this baggage down?
    If I'm being honest
    I'm not sure I'd know how
    I want to take shelter but I'm ready, ready to fight
    And somewhere in the middle I feel a little paralyzed
    But maybe I'm stronger than I realize

    I want to believe
    No, I choose to believe
    That I was made to become
    A sanctuary
    Fear won't go away
    But I can keep it at bay
    And these invisible walls
    Just might keep us safe
    With vigilant heart
    I'll push into the dark
    But I'll learn to breathe deep
    And make peace with the stars
    Is that courage or faith
    To show up every day?
    To trust that there will be light
    Always waiting behind
    Even the darkest of nights

    And no matter what
    Somehow we'll be okay
    Don't be afraid

    How nice it'd be if we could try everything
    I'm serious, let's make a list and just begin
    "What about danger?" So what. "What about risk?"
    Let's climb the mountain before we cross that bridge!

    'Cause I'm restless, I'm restless, I'm restless
    For whatever comes next

    How wonderful to see a smile on your face
    It costs farewell tears for a welcome-home parade
    A secret handshake between me and my one life:
    I'll find the silver lining no matter what the price

    'Cause I'm hungry, oh I'm hungry, I'm hungry
    For whatever comes next

    Let me tell you another secret of the trade-
    It feels like sinking when I'm standing in one place
    So I look to the future and I book another flight
    When everything feels heavy, I've learned to travel light

    But I want to be here
    Truly. Be. Here
    To watch the ones that I love bloom
    And I want to make room
    To lovethem through and through and through
    And through the slow and barren seasons too

    I feel hope
    Deep in my bones
    Tomorrow will be beautiful

    And I'm ready. God I'm ready, oh I'm ready
    Restless and hungry, but I'm ready
    For whatever comes next


     



    I remember the minute.
    It was like a switch was flipped-
    I was just a kid who grew up strong enough
    To pick this armor up
    And suddenly it fit

    God, that was so long ago, long ago, long ago...
    I was little, I was weak, perfectly naive
    And I grew up too quick

    Now you won't see all that I have to lose
    And all I've lost in the fight to protect it
    I won't let you in. I swore never again-
    I can't afford, no, I refuse to be rejected

    I want to break these bones 'til they're better
    I want to break them right and feel alive
    You were wrong, you were wrong, you were wrong-
    My healing needed more than time

    When I see fragile things, helpless things, broken things
    I see the familiar
    I was little, I was weak, I was perfect too
    Now I'm a broken mirror

    But I can't let you see all that I have to lose
    All I've lost in the fight to protect it
    I can't let you in- I swore never again
    I can't afford to let myself be blindsided

    I'm standing guard, I'm falling apart
    And all I want is to trust you
    Show me how to lay my sword down
    For long enough to let you through

    Here I am, pry me open
    What do you want to know?
    I'm just a kid who grew up scared enough
    To hold the door shut
    And bury my innocence
    But here's a map, here's a shovel
    Here's my achilles' heel

    I'm all in, palms out, I'm at your mercy now and I'm ready to begin
    I am strong, I am strong, I am strong enough to let you in

    I'll shake the ground with all my might
    I will pull my whole heart up to the surface
    For the innocent, for the vulnerable
    I'll show up on the front lines with a purpose
    And I'll give all I have, I'll give my blood, I'll give my sweat-
    An ocean of tears will spill for what is broken
    I'm shattered porcelain, glued back together again
    Invincible like I've never been


     



    Who am I
    To say what any of this means-
    I have been sleepwalking
    Since I was fourteen

    Now as I write my song
    I retrace my steps
    Honestly, it's easier
    To let myself forget

    Still, I check my vital signs
    Choked up, I realize
    I've been less than half myself
    For more than half my life

    Wake up
    Fall in love again
    Wage war on gravity
    There's so much
    Worth fighting for
    You'll see

    Another domino falls
    Either way

    It looks like empathy
    To understand all sides
    But I'm just trying to find myself
    Through someone else's eyes

    So show me what to do
    To restart this heart of mine
    How do I forgive myself
    For losing so much time?

    Wake up
    Roll up your sleeves
    There's a chain reaction
    In your heart
    Muscle memory
    Remembering who you are

    Stand up
    Fall in love again and again and again
    Wage war on gravity
    There's so much
    Worth fighting for
    You'll see

    Another domino falls
    And another domino falls

    A little at a time
    I feel more alive
    I let the scale tip and feel all of it
    It's uncomfortable but right

    We were born to try
    To see each other through
    To know and love ourselves and others well
    Is the most difficult and meaningful
    Work we'll ever do
