To make my life worth living.

Nate Sallie - Inside Out. Curb

From the release, Inside Out (2003)

Beauty, money and fame ... the three things that the popular media seem to focus on as the keys to a happy life. But here in the real world, most folks don't have supermodel bodies, Bill Gates' kind of money or Britney Spears' sort of fame. For this reason, many people look in the mirror and don't see much that's worth looking at. Nate Sallie reminds us that God sees something different.

From the song ...

I’ll remind you who you are
‘Cause in my eyes you are a star
