About the Song from music therapist Jenny Plume

This song was written on a day when Gigi did not feel like writing a song. Instead, we talked about her philosophy regarding the idea that there is no such thing as normal. In fact, she felt that the word normal, should be taken out of the dictionary!

Once again, I wrote down all of Gigi’s ideas, phrases and words, finally compiling them into this song. It celebrates the unique qualities in all people and how we should embrace each other’s differences.

We had a wonderful experience with Amy Grant in the studio. She was warm and made everyone feel comfortable, especially Gigi. We can’t imagine hearing anyone else’s voice on this great song.

Learn more about Gigi.

Lyrics

Amy Grant and Gigi PasleyThere is no normal
There is no regular
There is no perfect day

There is no usual
There is no now
There ‘s only what I say

Everybody has a story
Everybody has a theme
Everybody has a different way
Of eating ice cream
Everybody has their day
Everybody needs to scream
Everybody everybody
everybody has a dream

Amy Grant and Gigi PasleyLife is in the details
Life is a surprise
Life is something new

Life is hard
Life is a mystery
Life is with me and you

Everybody has a story
Everybody has a theme
Everybody has a different way

Of eating ice cream
Everybody has their day
Everybody needs to scream
Everybody everybody everybody has a dream
