Purpose by: Justin Bieber

This song talks about how he feels like giving up, but he had to remember he has a purpose. Sometimes in school you feel like it is getting to hard, and you feel like giving up. You have to remember you are taking these classes to make yourself better and to give you a bigger purpose in life, maybe for a job or for college. Studies show that high school students have a terrible time dealing with depression. 25% of high school students deal with depression and anxiety. http://www.mercurynews.com/health/ci_25074044/teen-health-depression-anxiety-and-social-phobias-rising

Rascal Flatts - What hurts the most + Lyrics

What hurts the most. By: Rascal Flatts

This song talk about a couple breaking up. In school lots of students have problems with relationships. Kids just need to learn that if someone walks out of your life, it was for a better person to come along. High school relationships almost always end, although most people get married to someone they met in high school or middle school.

MIKA ft. Ariana Grande - Popular Song (Lyrics)

Popular Song. By: MIKA ft. Ariana Grande

This song talks about being popular in school. Kids these days are always worried about being popular and fitting in. They think that if they don't play a sport or are friends with certain people that they are not popular. People in school (especially middle school) are always worried about being popular. Popularity is nothing important, it also leads to problems later in life. http://www.businessinsider.com/being-popular-in-high-school-leads-to-problems-in-adulthood-2014-6
P!nk - Family Portrait

Family Portrait. By:Pink

This song talks about a kid going through a divorce with her family. Many kids in schools have parents who are divorced or are going through one. I believe it is harder for the child to understand what happens in a divorce. Some students that have problems with having divorced parents are more likely to be in a divorced relationship themselves. Kids tend to blame themselves for their parents problems.

JJ Heller - What Love Really Means (Official Music Video)

What Love Really Means. By: J.J. Heller

In the beginning of this song, she talk about a young boy who does not know how to get through his life. He cries in a corner to God, asking him for help and asking him who will love him for who he really and truly is. Most schools will not allow students or teachers to talk about their religion and their beliefs. Some private schools however, are based on Christianity.
