the lyrics.

Music soothes my soul. If I didn’t have music, I don’t know what I would do. I saw a quote the other day that said, “When you are happy you enjoy the beat. When you are sad you understand the lyrics.” That’s exactly how I am. I have a lot of songs that have amazing beats and I can jam out to them in my car. But I also have a large amount of songs that I listen to because I relate to what is being said. It is almost as if the music is giving a voice to everything inside of me that would otherwise remain unsaid. So in honor of this I am going to provide a look into my mind as it relates to lyrics. The lyrics that I relate to the most. It is how I view myself. How I view my world. How I view the deepest parts within me. These are my hopes and dreams. And also the most broken pieces. These lyrics are the voice that I wouldn’t have otherwise.

“You saw my pain. Washed out in the rain. And broken glass. Saw the blood run from my veins. But you saw no fault. No cracks in my heart. And you knelt beside. My hope torn apart. But the ghosts that we knew will flicker from view. And we’ll live a long life. So give me hope in the darkness. That I will see the light. Cause oh, they gave me such a fright. But I will hold, as long as you like. Just promise me we will be alright.”
Mumford & Sons – Ghosts That We Knew

“Hey now, this is my desire. Consume me like a fire. Cause I just want something beautiful to touch me. I know that I’m in reach. Cause I am down on my knees. Waiting for, something beautiful.”
Needtobreathe – Something Beautiful

“She loves her mama’s lemonade. Hates the sound that goodbyes make. She prays one day she’ll find someone to need her. She swears that there’s no difference between the lies and compliments. It’s all the same if everybody leaves her.”
Jon McLaughlin – Beautiful Disaster

“I’ll let you look inside me. Through the stains and through the cracks. And in the darkness of this moment, you’ll see the good and bad. But try not to judge me. Because we’ve walked down different paths.”
Thompson Square – Glass

“Feeling my way through the darkness. Guided by a beating heart. I can’t tell where the journey will end. But I know where to start. They tell me I’m too young to understand. They say I’m caught up in a dream. Well life will pass me by if I don’t open up my eyes. Well that’s fine by me. So wake me up when it’s all over. When I’m wiser and I’m older. All this time I was finding myself. And I, I didn’t know I was lost.”
Avicii – Wake Me Up

“I wanna hide the truth. I wanna shelter you. But with the beast inside, there’s nowhere we can hide. No matter what we breed, we still are made of greed. This is my kingdom come. This is my kingdom come. When you feel my heat, look into my eyes. It’s where my demons hide. It’s where my demons hide. Don’t get too close. It’s dark inside.”
Imagine Dragons – Demons

“Cause everything that you thought I would be, is falling apart right in front of you. Every step that I take is another mistake to you. And every second I waste is more than I can take. I’ve become so numb. I can’t feel you there. Become so tired. So much more aware. I’m becoming this. All I want to do. Is be more like me. And be less like you. And I know I may end up failing too. But I know, you were just like me. With someone disappointed in you.”
Linkin Park – Numb

“Ever since I could remember, everything inside of me just wanted to fit in. I was never one for pretenders. Everything I tried to be just wouldn’t settle in. If I told you what I was, would you turn your back on me? And if I seemed dangerous, would you be scared? I get the feeling just because everything I touch isn’t dark enough, that this problem lies in me. I’m only a man with a candle to guide me. I’m taking a stand to escape what’s inside of me. A monster, a monster, I’ve turned into a monster. A monster, a monster, and it keeps getting stronger. Can I clear my conscience if I’m different from the rest? Do I have to run and hide? I never said that I want this. This burden came to me. And it’s made its home inside.”
Imagine Dragons – Monster
