    This is an awesome song and the video rocks too.  Why do I identify with this song so much in my melancholy mood today?   I read that this song was written about a love affair that the singer had with her drummer.  It's great because she told him she's...

    Cause you could spend your life Looking

    for your own reflection Time can blur the lines Between what's real and what's projected Had I known what I lost, What I'd gained What it cost I'd still give what remains To be myself again ~Donna Summer "Be Myself Again"

    "I can feel you fading,

    but until you're gone, I'm taking all the time that I can borrow... I don't want anything to do... With what comes after you... I don't want anything to change, I don't want anything to change... I like it lonely, I like it strange." "I Don't Want Anything To Change" - Bonnie...

    Isn't this the best part of breakin' up Finding

    someone else you can't get enough of Someone who wants to be with you too It's an itch we know we are gonna scratch Gonna take a while for this egg to hatch But wouldn't it be beautiful Why can't I breathe whenever I think about you....?

    How can you see into my eyes like open doors?

    Leading you down into my core where I've become so numb Without a soul my spirit's sleeping somewhere cold Until you find it there and lead it back home... Wake me up! Now that I know what I'm without, You can't just leave me.... Breathe into me and make me real.

    When I was younger I saw my daddy cry And curse

    at the wind. He broke his own heart and I watched As he tried to reassemble it. And my momma swore That she would never let herself forget. And that was the day that I promised I'd never sing of love if it does not exist. Paramore- The only exception <3
