Life is a "Work of Art"

August 26, 2011

Heard this song from Sonny With A Chance: So Random! Halloween Special, and I was very excited about it. I found this song kinda catchy, and at some point, quite meaningful as well. This song, "Work of Art", sang by Demi Lovato, really brought me into a level of passion which made me love living my everyday life even more than before. Let's check out the video first.

Nice song right? Now, what does the lyric says anyway?
Everyday is like a blank canvas You know you can paint it anyway you want it You can draw a black cloud You can make the sun shine Coloring a rainbow or use black and white Open up your eyes and your imagination Come on let's write a song A little poetry Take a photograph Let's make some memories You can make it anything That you want it to be If you follow your heart Life is a work of art Oh every night is like looking at a dark screen You're never too young or too old to dream You can make a fantasy into a reality 'Cause you're creating your own masterpiece Close your eyes and dream it Seeing is believing Come on let's write a song A little poetry Take a photograph Let's make some memories You can make it anything That you want it to be If you follow your heart Life is a work of art Come on let's write a song A little poetry Take a photograph Let's make some memories You can make it anything That you want it to be If you follow your heart Life is a work of art Turn a simple thought into a philosophy Turn a star into a galaxy Make a little noise into a symphony You're creating a masterpiece Come on let's write a song A little poetry Take a photograph Let's make some memories You can make it anything That you want it to be If you follow your heart Life is a work of art Come on let's write a song A little poetry Take a photograph Let's make some memories You can make it anything That you want it to be If you follow your heart Life is a work of art Come on let's write a song A little poetry Take a photograph Let's make some memories You can make it anything That you want it to be If you follow your heart Life is a work of art Life is a work of art Life is a work of art
Basically, the song is about living our life our very own way, meaning that we ourselves determine how our life would be. The first stanza states that life is a piece of blank space; it's totally up to you about how you would want to colour it, create it, live it, with your own imagination. Then in the second stanza, the singer urges everyone to create memorable moments out of anything, name it photos, writings, poetry, etc; this can be made true if you always believe in yourself, always have faith in your strength. The third stanza tells us that everyday is a brand new day; it's never too late to reach your dreams; and the singer creates a metaphor by stating that life is a masterpiece.  
Turn a simple thought into a philosophy Turn a star into a galaxy Make a little noise into a symphony You're creating a masterpiece
In this line, the singer is taking arts seriously in life. She believes (and want her listeners to believe also) that every part of our life is an art. Whatever we think (a simple thought), see (a star), speak and hear (a little noise), can be transformed into a work of art if we want to. Our world (life) is the creation of our own art. 
And I extremely agree with her. Demi Lovato, thanks for this lovely song of yours :).
