Kisah Sukses : Carrie Underwood

Carrie Maria Underwood lahir di sebuah kota kecil bernama Checotah , Oklahoma , pada tanggal 10 Maret 1983. Ayahnya adalah seorang pemilik ladang & ibunya bekerja sebagai seorang guru SD. Anak termuda dari tiga bersaudara perempuan ini mulai menampakkan bakat menyanyinya sejak usia tiga tahun. Saat itu ia selalu tampak senang bila mendapatkan kesempatan menyanyi di gerejanya. Alhasil sejak ia masih sangat muda, orang-orang sudah melihat bahwa pengagum Martina McBride & Bonnie Raitt ini memiliki suara yang istimewa. Dan suara istimewa ini pulalah yang mengantarkannya ke studio rekaman dan merilis album debut berjudul “Some Hearts”.

Jesus, Take the Wheel (Carrie Underwood)

She was drivin' last Friday on her way to Cincinnati
On a snow white Christmas Eve
Goin' home to see her Mama and her Daddy
With the baby in the back seat
Fifty miles to go and she was runnin' low
On faith and gasoline
It'd been a long hard year

She had a lot on her mind and she didn't pay attention
She was goin' way too fast
Before she knew it she was spinning on a thin black sheet of glass
She saw both their lives flash before her eyes
She didn't even have time to cry
She was so scared, she threw her hands up in the air

(Chorus)
Jesus take the wheel
Take it from my hands
'Cause I can't do this on my own
I'm letting go
So give me one more chance
Save me from this road I'm on
Jesus take the wheel

It was still getting colder when she made it to the shoulder and the car came to a stop
She cried when she saw that baby in the back seat sleepin' like a rock
And for the first time in a long time she bowed her head to pray
She said I'm sorry for the way
I've been livin' my life
I know I've got to change
So from now on tonight
(Repeat chorus)

Inside Your Heaven
(Carrie Underwood)

I've been down Now I'm blessed
I felt a revelation coming around
I guess its right, it's so amazing
Everytime I see you I'm alive
You're all I've got You lift me up
All my dreams are in your eyes

I wanna be inside your heaven
Take me to the place you cry from
Where the storm blows your way
I wanna be earth that holds you
Every bit of air you're breathin' in
A soothin' wind
I wanna be inside your heaven

When minutes turn to days and years
When mountains fall, I'll still be here
Holdin you until the day I die
And I wanna be inside your heaven
Take me to the place you cry from
Where the storm blows your way

I wanna be inside your heaven
Take me to the place you cry from
Where the storm blows your way
I wanna be earth that holds you
Every bit of air you're breathin' in
A soothin' wind
I wanna be inside your heaven
Oh yes I do
I wanna be inside your heaven
