Martina McBride Anyway Lyrics

Last updated: 04/24/2013 01:14:25 PM

You can spend your whole life buildin'
Somethin' from nothin'
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

God is great, but sometimes life ain't good
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


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.....Martina McBride | Reviewer: dmills241 | 4/10/13

I absolutely love this song because it speaks the truth. Life doesn't always turn out how we expect but we should do the things we love and that make us ourselves anyway. I had a very good friend that used to tell me that I look a bit like her....:)

This is one of the few songs that makes perfect sense to me, albeit in an intuitive manner. A very honest song... it make no promises of rewards you may receive for zealous efforts, but between the lines, it invites you to let those efforts be your own intrinsic rewards. Regardless of outcome, those efforts have a particular worth that nobody can ever take away. Best of luck to YOU... and to me... as we may be under the same dismal cloud.

the reason | Reviewer: lil truth | 12/14/11

my goodness people (no names)like reveiw 1 and 2
you do not get this song like in reveiw 1 you say that the 1st verse in the sng is a lie but its a metephor or somthing like that that
yeh there could be no point in doing somthing but u should do it anyway.

true??? | Reviewer: Megan | 7/16/11

The love part is a total lie but believe the whole verse about singing and the chorus id also true dreaming is true but building part, 1st verse is a total lie as well we all make mistrakes but don't worry about it

Wow... | Reviewer: Bob Wheeler | 12/6/10

This song confuses me to death. I want to go away. I want to stop loving her, but this song makes me want to hope. I just can't hope anymore. Though this is her song and I think she still loves me, it's not real life folks. I choose not to love anymore. I have tried to keep loving but it just isn't real life... Best of luck to the rest of you. I hope it works for you.

awesome!!!!!! | Reviewer: A.P. | 1/13/10

Powerful words and music | Reviewer: Col James Wilhite | 8/21/09

In 2004-2005 I was given a mission to be the Chief of the National Military Academy of Afghanistan Implementation Team. We were to build a university for Afghan students modeling West Point. We were given no budget, no full time staff. WE BUILT IT ANYWAY.

The first class recently graduated from an accredited university NMAA with degrees in political science, engineering, and/or foreign language. Good news not carried in the US because it was just that, good news. I am writing a book called "We Answered the Call: Building the Crown Jewel of Afghanistan" which will be out in Feb 2010. You can read about the GOOD NEWS ANYWAY.

God Bless our Troops and God Bless America!

Living life to the fullest | Reviewer: Davey | 1/17/08

This song reflects my personal philosophy on life and how we should live it to the fullest,regardless of heartaches, and disappointments, and failures. I have experienced it all, and still do. Life is a journey, enjoy it, challenge your limits.

Both Versions are Awesome | Reviewer: Music Fan | 12/2/07

I like both versions of "Anyway", Martina McBrides, and the Katie Giguere version. Both went to #5 on the Christian charts.. What a great testament to this song!

Diane of Night Vision Band | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/26/07

What a incredible song! What Martina has done is offer hope to all of us that give up on life.
The songwriter for "Anyway" should win an award, and Martina is just an amazing singer and person.
I sure hope I can give the song justice as I humbly attempt to learn this wonderful masterpiece!

I love martina | Reviewer: Mandi | 11/21/07

who ever said that she sings like a man is a jerk....she is honestly the best singer in the whole world and i love you martina

martina 's anyway | Reviewer: timeless1987 | 11/6/07

well. i literally loved this music.Martina has very Powerful voice and this song and most of all its true. God loves us no matter what we do and he will Always Shine on us. martina is an Amazing Country singer i dont think that anybody regret hearing her sing "anyway." it breaks my heart once that because i became Deaf at age 3 because i lost it and i feel sometimes left out and People wouldnt want talk to me and i feel really sad so much. God taught me Great things in this world and what he really wants us to do is Make the World a Better place to live. in our lives sometimes its hard. but God is Great. i moved on few years ago. God changed my life and im now Happy and i get do whatever i want Chose to be. i love to sing "anyway " in front my family and friends. but i have Thought about singing it in church for Christmas. most i doubt that martina will win the Female vocalist for this music.

t hank you for all your support for Martina.
