I Use Music Lyrics To Explain My Feelings

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 9,732 People

    I try. I wish I could half the time.

    YESTERDAY WHEN I WAS YOUNG Yesterday,

    when I was young, The taste of life was sweet, Like rain upon my tongue. I teased at life, As if it were a foolish game, The way an evening breeze, May tease a candle flame. A million dreams I dreamed, The splendid things I planned. I always built to last, On weak and...

    Saw you dancing off the ocean running fast

    Can you tell me how you feel

    and look me in the face? I've always wanted to know I'll go and drop my guard, you put me in my place. I can't stand it. I don't get it. Nothing ever seems to work when you're around. You always build me up to break me down. I'd give you everything but that would never be good...

    'Cause nobody knows you,

    baby, the way I do, And nobody loves you, baby, the way I do, It's been so long, it's been so long, maybe you are fireproof, 'Cause nobody saves me, baby, the way you do. I wish somebody could honestly say this about me and I could say it to them right back.

    Lessons Learned.

    And every tear that had to fall from my eyes, Everyday I wondered how I'd get through the night, Every change life has thrown me. I'm thankful for every break in my heart I'm grateful for every scar, Some pages turned, Some bridges burned, But there were lessons learned.
