#Lyrics Scars-Papa Roach

 

I tear my heart open
I sew myself shut
My weakness is
That I care too much
My scars remind us
That the past is real
I tear my heart open
Just to feel

Drunk and I’m feeling down
And I just want to be alone
I’m pissed cause you came around
Why don’t you just go home
‘Cause you channel all your pain
And I can’t help you go fix yourself
Your making me insane
All I can say is

I tear my heart open
I sew myself shut
My weakness is
That I care too much
Our scars remind us
That the past is real
I tear my heart
Open just to feel

I tried to help you once
Against my own advice
I saw you going down
But you never realized
That your drowning in the water
So I offered you my hand
Compassion’s in my nature
Tonight is our last stand

I tear my heart open
I sew myself shut
My weakness is
That I care too much
Our scars remind us
That the past is real
I tear my heart
Open just to feel

I’m drunk and I’m feeling down
And I just want to be alone
You shouldn’t ever came around
Why don’t you just go home?
‘Cause your drowning in the water
And I tried to grab your hand
And I left my heart open
But you didn’t understand
But you didn’t understand
You fix yourself

I can’t help you fix yourself
But at least I can say I tried
I’m sorry but I gotta move on with my own life
I can’t help you fix yourself
But at least I can say I tried
I’m sorry but I gotta move on with my own life

I tear my heart open
I sew myself shut
My weakness is that
I care too much
Our scars remind us
That the past is real
I tear my heart
Open just to feel

I tear my heart open
I sew myself shut
My weakness is that
I care too much
Our scars remind us
That the past is real
I tear my heart open
Just to feel

 

Oh my god. I remember when this song came out. And it doesn’t matter how old it is….it always seems to have a meaning with me. Like recently. I have been feeling like I was being used. A person would only call or text when they wanted me to pay for something. It started out as a friendly thing. I wanted to help. I am compassionate. Helping is in my nature. I would literally give my last dollar. But it got to the point where I was only getting messages about helping…So, even tho it killed me I stopped helping. And guess who I don’t hear from…yeah…

Scars.

I tear my heart open…every single time.

Before that it was someone else. There is always someone that I can relate to this song. The song deals with trying to always fix someone elses problems. No matter what pain it causes you. It is  pretty much my anthem. Unfortunately… 😦

#Lyrics Grateful-Rita Ora

There were a lot of tears I had to cry through
A lot of battles left me battered and bruised
And I was shattered, had my heart ripped in two
I was broken, I was broken
There were a lot of times I stumbled and crashed
When I was on the edge, down to my last chance
So many times when I was so convinced that
I was over, I was over
But I had to fall yeah
To rise above it all

I’m grateful for the storm
Made me appreciate the sun
I’m grateful for the wrong ones
Made me appreciate the right ones
I’m grateful for the pain
For everything that made me break
I’m thankful for all my scars
‘Cause they only make my heart
Grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful
Grateful

I was sinking, I was drowning in doubt
The weight all of the pain was weighing me down
Pulled it together and I pulled myself out
Learned a lesson, learned a lesson
That there’s a lot you gotta go through, hell yes
But that’s what got me strong, I got no regrets
And I’ve got only love, got no bitterness
Count my blessings, count my blessings, yeah
I’m proud of every tear, yeah
‘Cause they got me here

I’m grateful for the storm
Made me appreciate the sun
I’m grateful for the wrong ones
Made me appreciate the right ones
I’m grateful for the pain
For everything that made me break
I’m thankful for all my scars
‘Cause they only make my heart
Grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful
Grateful

There is nothing I would change
That even one mistake I made
I got lost, found myself, found my way

I’m grateful for the storm
Made me appreciate the sun
I’m grateful for the wrong ones
Made me appreciate the right ones
I’m grateful for the pain
For everything that made me break
I’m thankful for all my scars
‘Cause they only make my heart
Grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful, grateful, oh
Grateful

You know that I’m grateful
You know that I care
No time for the wrong ones
I’ll always be there
Grateful
Woah (Grateful, grateful, grateful)
I’m grateful, oh yeah (Grateful, grateful)
Oh, I’m grateful, yeah

This song is so uplifting. I don’t think Rita Ora gets enough attention. I know she didn’t write the song…but her voice is so powerful. I know, I’m guilty. I didn’t learn who Rita Ora was until she played Mia in 50 shades. I am a bad fan.

But I started searching thru her musical library once I saw the movie.  One of her songs that I found completely jaw dropping, inspirational, full of hope was this song. It speaks to my anxiety so much. Like I am who I am because of my anxiety. I am stronger because of my anxiety. I am more compassionate because of my anxiety. I am grateful for my journey. Do I hate having anxiety? Hell yeah! but has it shaped me into a better person? I think so.

#Lyrics Gravity-John Mayer

Gravity is working against me
And gravity wants to bring me down
Oh, I’ll never known what makes this man
With all the love that his heart can stand
Dream of ways to throw it all away

Whoa, gravity is working against me
And gravity wants to bring me down
Oh, twice as much ain’t twice as good
And can’t sustain like one half could
It’s wanting more that’s gonna send me to my knees 

Oh twice as much ain’t twice as good
And can’t sustain like one half could
It’s wanting more that’s gonna send me to my knees

Whoa, gravity, stay the hell away from me
Whoa, gravity has taken better men than me
Now how can that be?
Just keep me where the light is
Just keep me where the light is
Just keep me where the light is
Come on keep me where the light is
Come on keep me where, keep me where the light is.

 

One thing that I love about music. Is it is usually up to the listener to interpret what they are hearing. There are many ideas about what this song is about. There are many different situations that this song fits to.

But for me….This is like my mood. I have said that my lows are pretty damn low and my highs are very bubbly. So this song is like I am having my good day. I am up high. I am enjoying life. My anxiety is at bay. Its a good damn day. But gravity (anxiety) is trying to bring me back down. And I don’t want to go. I want to stay where the light is.

#Lyrics Skyscraper-Demi Lovato

Skies are crying
I am watching
Catching tear drops in my hands
Only silence
Has an ending
Like we never had a chance

Do you have to
Make me feel like
There is nothing left of me

You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I’m made of glass
Like I’m made of paper
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper
Like a skyscraper

As the smoke clears
I awaken
And untangle you from me
Would it make you
Feel better
To watch me while I bleed

All my windows
Still are broken
But I’m standing on my feet

You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I’m made of glass
Like I’m made of paper
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper
Like a skyscraper

Go run run run
I’m gonna stay right here
Watch you disappear ya yaa
Go run run run
Ya it’s a long way down
But I am closer to the clouds up here

You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I’m made of glass
Like I’m made of paper
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper
Like a skyscraper

(Like a skyscraper)
Like a skyscraper
Like a skyscraper

 

This is such a powerful song from Demi Lovato. I think this was the first like real song that I had heard from her that wasn’t Disney related and I absolutely loved it. I was in High School and as many of you know, that is an awkward time altogether.

Demi wrote two versions of this song (three if you count the spanish version) The first one was right before going into rehab and the second was when she left rehab. She liked the way the first one sounded better and that is the one we get to hear and I love it.

It is such a strong hopeful song. It says to me, no matter what you throw at me…I will keep trying to build myself up again. Like no matter how much my anxiety tries to make things harder for me, I will keep rising from the ground. I love this song and I love Demi even more for her journey. Her strength, her wisdom and just her.

#Lyrics How Far I’ll Go-Moana

[Verse 1]
I’ve been staring at the edge of the water
Long as I can remember, never really knowing why
I wish I could be the perfect daughter
But I come back to the water, no matter how hard I try

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Every turn I take, every trail I track
Every path I make, every road leads back
To the place I know, where I cannot go
Where I long to be

[Chorus 1]
See the line where the sky meets the sea? It calls me
And no one knows, how far it goes
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me
One day I’ll know, if I go there’s just no telling how far I’ll go

[Post-Chorus]
Go-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Go-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Go-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Go-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

[Verse 2]
I know everybody on this island seems so happy on this island
Everything is by design
I know everybody on this island has a role on this island
So maybe I can roll with mine

[Refrain 2]
I can lead with pride, I can make us strong
I’ll be satisfied if I play along
But the voice inside sings a different song
What is wrong with me?

[Chorus 2]
See the light as it shines on the sea? It’s blinding
But no one knows, how deep it goes
And it seems like it’s calling out to me, so come find me
And let me know, what’s beyond that line, will I cross that line?

[Bridge]
See the line where the sky meets the sea? It calls me
And no one knows, how far it goes
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me
One day I’ll know, how far I’ll go

I know it is kind of cheesy. Choosing a Disney song for an anxiety blog. I mean who am I kidding. Right? Its a kids movie. What do kids know about anxiety?  Well….alot

This song to me…is hope. Its a song that reminds me how much more is out there. That my life is not ruled by anxiety.

#Lyrics Everlong-Foo Fighters

 

Hello, I’ve waited here for you
Everlong
Tonight, I throw myself into
And out of the red
Out of her head, she sang
Come down, and waste away with me
Down with me
Slow how you wanted it to be
And over my head, out of her head she sang
And I wonder when I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you
You’ve got to promise not to stop when I say when
She sang
Breathe out, so I can breathe you in
Hold you in
And now I know you’ve always been
And out of your head, out of my head I sang
And I wonder when I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you
You’ve got to promise not to stop when I say when
She sang
And I wonder…
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you
You’ve got to promise not to stop when I say when
She sang
I know I post a lot of songs that relate to mental health. But honestly, there are just some songs that I adore. I think that music shows who you are. I always thought that you could tell how someone is feeling by listening to the lyrics of their favorite song. This song was on my playlist when I started going out with my husband.
It is, to me, a song of falling in love and hoping it never changes. Dave Grohl said this song is about “being connected to someone so much that not only do you love them physically and spiritually, but when you sing along with them you harmonize perfectly.”

#Lyrics Demons-Imagine Dragons

 

 

When the days are cold
And the cards all fold
And the saints we see
Are all made of gold

When your dreams all fail
And the ones we hail
Are the worst of all
And the blood’s run stale

I want to hide the truth
I want to 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
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

When the curtain’s call
Is the last of all
When the lights fade out
All the sinners crawl

So they dug your grave
And the masquerade
Will come calling out
At the mess you made

Don’t want to let you down
But I am hell bound
Though this is all for you
Don’t want to hide the truth

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
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

They say it’s what you make
I say it’s up to fate
It’s woven in my soul
I need to let you go

Your eyes, they shine so bright
I want to save their light
I can’t escape this now
Unless you show me how

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
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

It has been noted that this song tells the story of how the singer knows how dark he is and how he wants his loved ones to not get to close. He is afraid that they’ll get hurt if they come too close.

There has been way to many times where I felt like I had demons in my head. That nagging little voice that tells me I’m always in danger. That every little situation is going to turn out bad. Those are my demons.
