... The Janis Ian classic "At Seventeen" sung by Jann Arden was playing on my iPod, and I realized just how well those lyrics fit my life. The lyrics could easily be about ugly duckling boys... but since they aren't, and enough people assume I'm gay already, The best I could...
The tone sounds very relatable to me. It sounds like crying out for an ideal and possibly something you miss. It reminds me of building castles in the sky. Having a vision while feeling the danger that it may just remain a vision. You know you can't make your vision a reality...
One day you'll look to see I've gone.
For tomorrow may rain, so I'll follow the sun.
Some day you'll know I was the one.
But tomorrow may rain, so I'll follow the sun.
And now the time has come
And so my love I must go.
And though I lose a friend,
In the end you will...
Every little sentence in this song can be related to some kind of moment in my life, some kind of emotion i've felt or some kind of feeling I've had. It's actually quite weird how much I can relate to the lyrics.
I cant feel much anymore. My parents were always bad people, my dad by his own choosing, my mom because of abuse. I have to live with my grandparents, who think that they failed raising my dad. Now they try to make sure that I don't end up like my dad. The problem is that I could...
This song has always touched me since it first came out, through all the phases I went through.
When you're talking to yourself
And nobody's home
You can fool yourself
You came in this world alone
So nobody ever told you baby
I used to be a better Christian. Like Van, I still have a faith of sorts. I am dominated by the need to believe in something that (besides being undeniable because of all the life changing experiences I have witnessed) can help me connect with the eternal life force in a way...
I can't say this song sums up my whole life.I can say that it has touched and left a profound mark on my heart and soul.Certain themes of my life I feel as if they wrote that song for me. " All alone at the end of the evening....." This past year that turned my world upside down...

Be my pillow
Take my head
And let me sleep
In the coolness of your shadow
In the silence of your deep
Hide my yearning
For the things I cannot be
My eyes are glistening with the ghosts of my past
The memories that we once had
Now that you've turned the world against me
I'm only trying to win them back
With my eyes sewn shut
To shut down and bathe in these words about me
And now you're standing alone with your eyes to the...
Well if you wanted honesty, that's all you had to say.
I never want to let you down or have you go, it's better off this way.
For all the dirty looks, the photographs your boyfriend took,
Remember when you broke your foot from jumping out the second floor?
I'm not okay
I have always questioned everything. I want to know the reasons we do things, I need to see, to touch, to feel. I have always wanted to experience things, not just read about them or hear about them. I just need to know.
I have always loved the combined powers of...
a few weeks ago my sister gave me one of her old sleeping with sirens CDs and when this song came on it really reminded me of my father. I was told that he was arrested and thats why he wasnt there, but i later found out that he had walked out on us. When i found out about that...
I’m standing close to the edge
I witnessed all those things you said
I’ve tried not to let them in
But here I’m standing close to the edge
How was I supposed to know
Not to hate but to care
A distant dream that I forgot
Could have served me so well
So so well
A song by Planting Seeds a local band in my area:
I knew there was a day
I would always remember
In the month before september
I'll not forget the glow emebers in my mind
And I'm inclined to tell the story over and over again
About the time I got spend with my good firiend...
I remember tears streaming down your face
When I said I'd never let you go
When all those shadows almost killed your light
I remember you said 'Don't leave me here alone'
When all that's dead, and gone, and past, tonight.
Just close your eyes, the sun is going down.
Mmm, mmm, mmmI get wings to flyOh, oh, I'm aliveYeahWhen you call on meWhen I hear you breatheI get wings to flyI feel that I'm aliveWhen you look at meI can touch the skyI know that I'm aliveMmm, oh, ahhWhen you bless the dayI just drift awayAll my worries dieI'm glad that I'm...
