Superchick!  Now this is one of those bands that you think you’ve never heard of..but you have.  This empowering rock/pop group has spat out some awesome songs some of which you already know.  “One Girl Revolution” and “Perfect Day” from off the Legally Blonde soundtrack.  This band has some excellent new music out and their lyrics range from cute to cutting to clever. Some songs like “princes and frogs” seem downright silly while “Stand up” and “One Girl Revolution” are empowering.  Of course, the newly released “Beauty from Pain” is so entirely well written that I cry each time I read the lyrics.  Check this band out!

Here is a great sampling of their best songs:

Here are the lyrics to Beauty from Pain:

SUPERCHICK LYRICS

“Beauty From Pain”

The lights go out all around me
One last candle to keep out the night
And then the darkness surrounds me
I know i’m alive but i feel like i’ve died
And all that’s left is to accept that it’s over
My dreams ran like sand through the fists that i made
I try to keep warm but i just grow colder
I feel like i’m slipping away

After all this has passed, i still will remain
After i’ve cried my last, there’ll be beauty from pain
Though it won’t be today,
Someday i’ll hope again
And there’ll be beauty from pain
You will bring beauty from my pain

My whole world is the pain inside me
The best i can do is just get through the day
When life before is only a memory
I’ll wonder why God lets me walk through this place
And though i can’t understand why this happened
I know that i will when i look back someday
And see how you’ve brought beauty from ashes
And made me as gold purified through these flames

After all this has passed, i still will remain
After i’ve cried my last, there’ll be beauty from pain
Though it won’t be today,
Someday i’ll hope again
And there’ll be beauty from pain
You will bring beauty from my pain

Here i am, at the end of me
Tryin to hold to what i can’t see
I forgot how to hope
This night’s been so long
I cling to Your promise
There will be a dawn

After all this has passed, i still will remain
After i’ve cried my last, there’ll be beauty from pain
Though it won’t be today,
Someday i’ll hope again
And there’ll be beauty from pain
You will bring beauty from my pain
