You haven’t seen the last of me…

I do not go to the movies anymore and I do not watch television either – except perhaps “American Idol”, the latest season of which has started. But I did know that the Golden Globe Awards ceremony was on the other day and I googled to see which song won the Best Original Song category.

I was somewhat surprised to see that the award went to the song, “You haven’t seen the last of me” by Cher…

Cher? Gee! You must be very old if you know Cher. When she first started singing as one half of the Sonny & Cher duo, I was still in school. When I shared the link to the song on Facebook, an ex-student of mine commented, “Certainly not (seen the last of her, that is)…plastic lasts forever!” LOL!!! I thought that was hilarious…mean, but hilarious.

Well, it turned out that the song was a Diane Warren’s composition…

Diane Warren's Love Songs cd

She has a number of award winners to her name. Who does not know “I don’t wanna miss a thing” by Aerosmith (from “Armageddon”). Faith Hill’s “There You’ll Be” from “Pearl Harbour” or “How do I live” by Trisha Yearwood from “Con Air”. Other songs by her that I love so much include “Unbreak my heart” by the singer with the sensuous sultry voice, Toni Braxton, “Because you loved me” by Celine Dion and one which happens to be one of my all-time favourites – “Love will lead you back” by Taylor Dayne.

Well, I must say that I do like this latest award-winning song by Diane Warren and its very motivating and meaningful lyrics:

Feeling broken, barely holding on
But there’s just something so strong, somewhere inside me
And I am down but I’ll get up again
Don’t count me out just yet

I’ve been brought down to my knees
And I’ve been pushed way past the point of breaking
But I can take it, I’ll be back…back on my feet
This is far from over
You haven’t seen the last of me
You haven’t seen the last of me

They can say that I won’t stay around
But I’m gonna stand my ground
You’re not gonna stop me
You don’t know me, you don’t know who I am
Don’t count me out so fast


There will be no fade out, this is not the end
I’m down now but I’ll be standing tall again
Times are hard but I was built tough
I’m gonna show you all what I’m made of


No no, I’m not going nowhere, I’m staying right here
Oh no, you won’t see me begging
I’m not taking my bow
Can’t stop me – it’s not the end
You haven’t seen the last of me
Oh no, you haven’t seen the last of me
You haven’t seen the last of me

Do give it a listen. Maybe you’ll like it too!
