I'd like to share the lyrics to the songs that have given me inspiration when getting into the mindset of Nana. Feel free to look up the songs sometime. They're all very good. <3 Oh, and if you have any recommendations for more Nana songs, they're welcome through your replies to this. :D

Note: Yeah, some of these are Christian Rock songs--and Nana is so not familiar with religion--but the feel of the two Barlow Girl songs for example are soooo Nana. Most of "Never Alone" is like Nana calling out for her papa.

Dare You To Move, by Switchfoot

Welcome to the planet
Welcome to existence
Everyone's here
Everyone's here
Everybody's watching you now
Everybody waits for you now
What happens next?
What happens next?

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened before

Welcome to the fallout
Welcome to resistance
The tension is here
The tension is here
Between who you are and who you could be
Between how it is and how it should be

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened

Maybe redemption has stories to tell
maybe forgiveness is right where you fell
Where can you run to escape from yourself?
Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna go?
Salvation is here

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened,
Today never happened,
Today never happened,
Today never happened,
Today never happened before

Learning to Breathe, by Switchfoot

Hello, good morning. How you do?
What makes your rising sun so new?
I could use a fresh beginning too
All of my regrets are nothing new

So this is the way that I say I need you
This is the way, this is the way
That I'm learning to breathe
I'm learning to crawl
I'm finding that you and you alone can break my fall
I'm living again
Awake and alive
I'm dying to breathe in these abundant skies

Hello, good morning. How you been?
Yesterday left my head kicked in
I never, never thought that I would fall like that
Never knew that I could hurt this bad

I'm learning to breathe
I'm learning to crawl
I'm finding that you and you alone can break my fall
I'm living again
Awake and alive
I'm dying to breathe in these abundant skies

So this is the way that I say I need you
This is the way that I say I love you
This is the way that I say I'm yours
This is the way, this is the way

That I'm learning to breathe
I'm learning to crawl
I'm finding that you and you alone can break my fall
I'm living again
Awake and alive
I'm dying to breathe in these abundant skies

Playing for Keeps, by Switchfoot

Do me a favor
Would you sing this to me slow?
'Cause I'm thinking it's my song
Do me a favor
Would you tell me when to let go?
'Cause I think I'm holding on

Would you do it for me?
Would you do it for me?
'Cause I'm playing for keeps

Tell me tomorrow has come
With open arms, open arms, open arms
If you say it's time to move on
Then I'll stop holding on, holding on

If you say that it's time for moving on
Yeah, time for moving on

Do me a favor
Would you tell me which way's up?
'Cause I don't know where I fit
Do me a favor
Would you tell me when to stop?
'Cause I don't know how to quit

Would you do it for me?
Would you do it for me?
'Cause I'm playing for keeps

Tell me tomorrow has come
With open arms, open arms, open arms
If you say it's time to move on
Then I'll stop holding on, holding on
If you say that it's time for moving on
Yeah, time for moving on

Do me a favor
Do me a favor
'Cause I'm playing for keeps

Tell me tomorrow has come
With open arms, open arms, open arms
If you say it's time to move on
Then I'll stop holding on, holding on
If you say that it's time for moving on
Yeah, time for moving on

Bent, by Matchbox 20

If I fall along the way
Pick me up and dust me off
And if I get too tired to make it
Be my breath so I can walk

If I need some other lovin'
Give me more than I can stand
And when my smile gets old and faded
Wait around I'll smile again

Shouldn't be so complicated
Just hold me and then
Just hold me again

Can you help me I'm bent
I'm so scared that I'll never
Get put back together

You're breaking me in
And this is how we will end
Will you help me? I'm bent

If I couldn't sleep could you sleep
Could you paint me better off
Could you sympathize with my needs
I know you think I need a lot

I started out clean but I'm jaded
Just phoning it in
Just breaking the skin

Can you help me I'm bent
I'm so scared that I'll never
Get put back together

You're breaking me in
And this is how we will end
Will you help me? I'm bent

Start bending me
It's never enough
I feel all your pieces

Start bending me
Keep bending me until I'm completely broken in

Shouldn't be so complicated
Just touch me and then
Just touch me again

Can you help me I'm bent
I'm so scared that I'll never
Get put back together

You're breaking me in
And this is how we will end
Will you help me? I'm bent

Dreams, by The Cranberries

Oh, my life is changing everyday
In every possible way
And oh my dreams
Are never quite as it seems
Never quite as it seems

I know I've felt like this before, but now I'm feeling it even more
Because it came from you
And then I open up and see the person falling here is me
A different way to be

I want more
Impossible to ignore
Impossible to ignore
And they'll come true
Impossible not to do
Impossible not to do

And now I tell you openly
You have my heart, so don't hurt me
You're what I couldn't find
Totally amazing mind
So understanding and so kind
You're everything to me

Oh, my life is changing everyday
In every possible away
And oh my dreams
Are never quite as it seems
'Cause you're a dream to me
Dream to me

On My Own, by Barlow Girl

I can't believe that I'm here in this place again
How did I manage to mess up one more time?
This pattern seems to be the story of my life
Should have learned this lesson by the thousandth time

'Cause I promise myself I wouldn't fall
But here I've fallen
I guess I'm not as strong as I thought
All I can do is cry to you

Oh God, you have to save me
You're my last and only hope
All my right answers fail me
I can't seem to make it on my own

I always thought that I would be strong enough
What made all of them fall couldn't take me down
Yeah, did I think that I was above it all?
I have learned that pride comes before the fall

I can't promise that I won't fall
'Cause here I've fallen
I know I'm not as strong as I thought
All I can do is cry to you

Oh God, you have to save me
You're my last and only hope
All my right answers fail me
I can't seem to make it on my own

Never Alone by Barlow Girl

I waited for you today
But you didn't show
No no no
I needed you today
So where did you go?
You told me to call
Said you'd be there
And though I haven't seen you
Are you still there?

I cried out with no reply
And I can't feel you by my side
So I'll hold tight to what I know
You're here and I'm never alone

And though I cannot see you
And I can't explain why
Such a deep, deep reassurance
You've placed in my life

We cannot separate
'Cause you're part of me
And though you're invisible
I'll trust the unseen

I cried out with no reply
And I can't feel you by my side
So I'll hold tight to what I know
You're here and I'm never alone

We cannot separate
'Cause you're part of me
And though you're invisible
I'll trust the unseen

I cried out with no reply
And I can't feel you by my side
So I'll hold tight to what I know
You're here and I'm never alone

Open Arms, by Journey

Lying beside you, here in the dark
Feeling your heart beat with mine
Softly you whisper, you're so sincere
How could our live be so blind
We sailed on together
We drifted apart
And here you are by my side

So now I come to you, with open arms
Nothing to hide, believe what I say
So here I am with open arms
Hoping you'll see what your love means to me
Open arms

Living without you, living alone
This empty house seems so cold
Wanting to hold you, wanting you near
How much I wanted you home

But now that you've come back
Turned night into day
I need you to stay

So now I come to you, with open arms
Nothing to hide, believe what I say
So here I am with open arms
Hoping you'll see what your love means to me
Open arms

Get Up, by Trapt

Your lonely cage is now unlocked
Once shackled ankles, now free to walk
The chains that bind you are breaking off
One by one, as the floor beneath you drops

Get up get off the ground
I want to see your head in the clouds
Get up get off the ground
The sky's the only limit we got now
I see ya reaching out
Through a sea of faces in the crowd
Get up get off the ground
Break the ties to which you have been bound
Don't let this world bring you down
Get up get off the ground

You wait so long to feel alive
For someone to come bring you to life
That time is here now, you survived
Don't hold back, from the ashes you will rise

Get up get off the ground
I want to see your head in the clouds
Get up get off the ground
The sky's the only limit we got now
I see ya reaching out
Through a sea of faces in the crowd
Get up get off the ground
Break the ties to which you have been bound
Don't let this world bring you down
Get up get off the ground

No more limitations, no restrictions
No more hesitation, no inhibitions
You have been awakened
You know your life has just begun
You're not just anyone
There's nothing you can't overcome

Get up get off the ground, get up get off the ground...

Get up, get up!

Get up get off the ground
I want to see your head in the clouds
Get up get off the ground
The sky's the only limit we got now
I see ya reaching out
Through a sea of faces in the crowd
Get up get off the ground
Break the ties to which you have been bound
Don't let this world bring you down
Get up get off the ground

Get up get off the ground
Get up get off the ground
Don't ever take the easy way out
You gotta make everyday count
Get up get off the ground
Get up get off the ground
Everything'll come back around
So come on get up off the ground
Get up off the ground

If there's any more, I'll edit them in later!
