I am back on my music kick. For a while, music and specifically lyrics were too much for me. There is a saying that when you're happy, you enjoy the music. But, when you're sad, you understand the lyrics.That has been beyond true with me lately. But, I've decided to reclaim music because it's my thing. I can't let a person or a situation take that away from me. So, no more avoiding certain songs or cringing when I hear them. Now, I just enjoy what I enjoy. Here are a few of my current faves. As always, the lyrics are what made me a fan. Get into all of them!
"This is not an excuse
I'm just telling the truth
Baby, I'm so sorry
For hurting you
Oh, I'm ashamed of me (Shame on me)
Wish I never done you wrong (Shame on me)
Every night of us I dream
That I wake up in your arms
I know why you left me
But since you've been gone
Has moved and grown
I've come to this conclusion
Over and over again
I don't want an enemy
I just want back my friend."
"Oh, silly me my dear, for thinking that you'd stay
Gave you my heart and then you ran away
Either I'm stupid, I'm foolish, or you're playing me
But it seems we were never really meant to be
So I thought I would try something new
I wanted to find out if I could live happy without you
And it turned out I wasn't living at all
I'd rather never known if you had just played along
I was living the dream believing things that just ain't true
Oh I can't believe I ever believed in you
You had me chasing fool's gold
I was chasing fool's gold."
"Just let it burn
Let it, let it burn
Call me crazy but I think I found the love of my life
Feel it creepin' in your heart
Ooh baby can you feel it tearing you apart?
That's right that's love
When it comes, you never wanna give it up
And baby, I'm caught in the light and I ain't gonna fight it
There's no use in tryin', I'm yours
And I want you to want me the way that I would you and more."
"Head on your chest babe, but your heart is so quietWe use to talk all night long, now we laying in silenceYour arms around me but your soul is somewhere elseGone so long and I know you so wellI know that you are everything that I ever dreamed ofAnd I hoped that love had a happy endingBaby you should be here, right hereBaby you should be here, right hereDon't know where you went but you're lost nowDon't know where you went but you're gone now."
"Last night you didn't call,Had me worried all night longWhy you keep doing me wrong?I don't know, babe!And it hurts so badI'm tired of being sad,This house is not a homeThe love is gone, baby!I just can't see it, I can't see, baby!Staying in this with you, you, you, you!If you love me, set me free!"
"The first time you shot me down I was grazed
Second round was never found, it ricocheted
Nowhere to run, I was stunned in a daze
A victim of a love I can't escape
I remember when you said you loved me
Three little words that burned into my soul
Maybe you didn't mean those things you told meMaybe you didn't really mean those words at all"
"So you say you wanna get away
We don't need a planeWe'll be your escapeTake you to a placeWhere there is no time, no spaceI could be your private islandOn a different planetAnything could happenListen to the wavesLet them wash away your painI could be your fantasyI could be your fantasyUnderneath the palm treesYou could leave your worriesListen to the wavesSure you wanna get so high?Breath me in like air tonight."
