#Lyrics Last Hope-Paramore

 

I don’t even know myself at all
I thought I would be happy but now
The more I try to push it I realize gonna let go of control
Gonna let it happen, gonna let it happen,
Gonna let it happen, just let it happen
It’s just a spark but it’s enough to keep me going
And when it’s dark out and no one’s around it keeps glowing
Every night I try my best to dream tomorrow makes it better
And wake up to the cold reality and not a thing is changed
But it would be happen, gonna let it happen
Gonna let it happen, gonna let it happen
It’s just a spark but it’s enough to keep me going
And when it’s dark out and no one’s around it keeps glowing
It’s just a spark but it’s enough to keep me going
And when it’s dark out and no one’s around it keeps glowing
And the salt in my wounds isn’t burning anymore than it used to
It’s not that I don’t feel the pain it’s just I’m not afraid of hurting anymore
And the blood of these veins isn’t pumping any less than it ever has
And that’s the hope I have the only thing I know that’s keeping me alive
Alive
Gonna let it happen, gonna let it happen
Gonna let it happen, gonna let it happen
Gonna let it happen, gonna let it happen
Gonna let it happen, gonna let it happen
It’s just a spark but it’s enough to keep me going
And when it’s dark out and no one’s around it keeps glowing
It’s just a spark but it’s enough to keep me going
And when it’s dark out and no one’s around it keeps glowing
The song was written by the lead singer after two of the band members left. She felt like she had lost her purpose after their departure. This is the song that helped her crawl out of that.
But to fans, it means so much more. This is one of those songs that you listen to when you want to cope. It is a song that helps you. Its one of those songs where you get into your feelings. Although this song helped the lead singer, it has helped many more fans. It is one of those songs where you say ‘hey, this song saved my life’. It is such a beautiful song. If you have never really listened to it, I suggest you do.

#Lyrics Wonderwall-Oasis


Today is gonna be the day
That they’re gonna throw it back to you
By now you should’ve somehow
Realized what you gotta do
I don’t believe that anybody
Feels the way I do, about you now

Back beat, the word was on the street
That the fire in your heart is out
I’m sure you’ve heard it all before
But you never really had a doubt
I don’t believe that anybody
Feels the way I do about you now

And all the roads we have to walk are winding
And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
There are many things that I
Would like to say to you but I don’t know how

Because maybe, you’re gonna be the one that saves me
And after all, you’re my wonderwall

Today was gonna be the day
But they’ll never throw it back to you
By now you should’ve somehow
Realized what you’re not to do
I don’t believe that anybody
Feels the way I do, about you now

And all the roads that lead you there are winding
And all the lights that light the way are blinding
There are many things that I
Would like to say to you but I don’t know how

I said maybe, you’re gonna be the one that saves me
And after all, you’re my wonderwall

I said maybe, you’re gonna be the one that saves me
And after all, you’re my wonderwall

I said maybe, you’re gonna be the one that saves me
You’re gonna be the one that saves me
You’re gonna be the one that saves me

 

I’ve loved this song for a very long time. Not many people in my grade really heard of this band so I was kind of like the outcast. On top of everything else. After I had done some research many years ago about why this song was written. I started thinking…maybe I can save myself. You know I have this thing in my head that makes the worst out of everything. Maybe I can change it. I can save me.

#Lyrics Invisible-Hunter Hayes

Crowded hallways are the loneliest places
For outcasts and rebels
Or anyone who just dares to be different
And you’ve been trying for so long
To find out where your place is
But in their narrow minds
There’s no room for anyone who dares to do something different
Oh, but listen for a minute

When you deal with mental illness, or you are the outcast, you’re not popular, you’re not like everyone else, you can feel alone. You could be in the crowded room and still feel alone

Trust the one
Who’s been where you are wishing all it was
Was sticks and stones
Those words cut deep but they don’t mean you’re all alone
And you’re not invisible
Hear me out,
There’s so much more to life than what you’re feeling now
Someday you’ll look back on all these days
And all this pain is gonna be invisible
Oh, invisible

So your confidence is quiet
To them quiet looks like weakness
But you don’t have to fight it
‘Cause you’re strong enough to win without a war
Every heart has a rhythm
Let yours beat out so loudly
That everyone can hear it
Yeah, I promise you don’t need to hide it anymore
Oh, and never be afraid of doing something different
Dare to be something more

Trust the one
Who’s been where you are wishing all it was
Was sticks and stones
Yeah, the words cut deep but they don’t mean you’re all alone
And you’re not invisible
Hear me out,
There’s so much more of this life than what you’re feeling now
And someday you’ll look back on all these days
And all this pain is gonna be invisible

These labels that they give you
just ’cause they don’t understand
If you look past this moment
You’ll see you’ve got a friend
Waving a flag for who you are
And all you’re gonna do
Yeah, so here’s to you
And here’s to anyone who’s ever felt invisible

Yeah, and you’re not invisible
Hear me out,
There’s so much more to life than what you’re feeling now
And someday you’ll look back on all these days
And all this pain is gonna be invisible
It’ll be invisible

 

I am not a big Country fan. I think it is because my grandpa forced us to listen to all of those old country songs. You know the ones where every song was about being in a bar after being dumped and she left with the car and the dog. Having to listen to that all the time…it was awful. I just chose not to listen to that genre anymore.

Until I met my best friend and her mom like country. There I found some great music that I could relate to. That I found to be better than what my grandpa forced me to listen to. I then started to venture on my own and I found Hunter Hayes. Its not just because he’s pretty. He writes about so much that is personal to him. I find something beautiful about an artist who takes their personal experiences and puts them into a song that others can relate to.

If you ever felt alone. If you ever felt like you were the outcast. You are not alone. That pain that you feel, it is only temporary. One day, you’ll wake up an see that you are not alone.

#Lyrics The Light-Disturbed

Like an unsung melody
The truth is waiting there for you to find it
It’s not a blight, but a remedy
A clear reminder of how it began
Deep inside your memory
Turned away as you struggled to find it
You heard the call as you walked away
A voice of calm from within the silence
And for what seemed an eternity
You’re waiting, hoping it would call out again
You heard the shadow reckoning
Then your fears seemed to keep you blinded
You held your guard as you walked away

When you think all is forsaken
Listen to me now (all is not forsaken)
You need never feel broken again
Sometimes darkness can show you the light

An unforgivable tragedy
The answer isn’t’ where you think you’d find it
Prepare yourself for the reckoning
For when your world seems to crumble again
Don’t be afraid, don’t turn away
You’re the one who can redefine it
Don’t let hope become a memory
Let the shadow permeate your mind and
Reveal the thoughts that were tucked away
So that the door can be opened again
Within your darkest memories
Lies the answer if you dare to find it
Don’t let hope become a memory

When you think all is forsaken
Listen to me now (all is not forsaken)
You need never feel broken again
Sometimes darkness can show you the light

Sickening, weakening
Don’t let another somber pariah consume your soul
You need strengthening, toughening
It takes an inner dark to rekindle the fire burning in you
Ignite the fire within you

When you think all is forsaken
Listen to me now (all is not forsaken)
You need never feel broken again
Sometimes darkness can show you the light

Don’t ignore, listen to me now (all is not forsaken)
You need never feel broken again
Sometimes darkness
Can show you the light

 

To me this is a song of hope. It is a song that inspires me to keep going. That even though it might be a dark day today, the darkness can lead me to light. So I just need to keep going.

#Lyrics Missing You-All Time Low

 

I heard that you’ve been
Self-medicating in the quiet of your room,
Your sweet, suburban tomb.
And if you need a friend,
I’ll help you stitch up your wounds.
I heard that you’ve been
Having some trouble finding your place in the world.
I know how much that hurts,
But if you need a friend
Then please just say the word
You’ve come this far,
You’re all cleaned up,
You’ve made a mess again,
There’s no more trying,
Time to sort yourself out
Hold on tight,
This ride is a wild one,
Make no mistake,
The day will come when you can’t cover up what you’ve done,
Now don’t lose your fight, kid,
It only takes a little push to pull on through,
With so much left to do,
You’ll be missing out, and we’ll be missing you.
I heard that you’ve been
Having some trouble finding your place in the world.
I know how much that hurts,
And if you need a friend
Then please just say the word
You’ve come this far,
You’re all cleaned up,
You’ve made a mess again,
There’s no more trying,
Time to sort yourself out
Hold on tight,
This ride is a wild one,
Make no mistake,
The day will come when you can’t cover up what you’ve done,
Now don’t lose your fight, kid,
It only takes a little push to pull on through,
With so much left to do,
You’ll be missing out, and we’ll be missing you.
Grit your teeth, pull your hair,
Paint the walls black and scream, “Fuck the world
‘Cause it’s my life, I’m gonna take it back, “
And never for a second blame yourself.
Hold on tight,
This ride is a wild one,
Make no mistake,
The day will come when you can’t cover up what you’ve done,
(No, you can’t cover up)
(One, two, three, four!)
Hold on tight,
This ride is a wild one (This ride is a wild one),
Make no mistake,
The day will come when you can’t cover up what you’ve done,
Now don’t lose your fight, kid (Don’t lose your fight, kid),
It only takes a little push to pull on through (push to pull on through),
With so much left to do
You’ll be missing out, and we’ll be missing you
I don’t know about you, but I read a lot of comment sections when I watch YouTube videos. I don’t know why I just do. Maybe because I want to see if others feel the way I do.
This is such a beautiful song. Such a beautiful you are loved song. To me, it is that song that you hear when you want someone to tell you that although you are not ok you will be. It’s that friend that you’ve always needed. Its that comfort song. Its therapy. It is musical therapy. I have not listened to any of All Time Lows songs, but if they’re all like this one. I think they just gained a new fan.
I hope you all had a great Christmas. Let me know what you did down in the comment sections 🙂

don’t stop thinking

I love music. I mean I absolutely love music. It is a part of my every day life. I love musical therapy. So when I find a new song that really strikes a chord with me, I’ve been known to put it on repeat….for days….maybe even weeks.

The same thing is true with my anxiety. I replay every single mistake I have ever made. Have they come back to haunt me?

For instance, my brother texted me one day and said ‘are you home’. My first thought is what’s wrong? I tell him yea and ask why. He says ‘I need to talk to you’ and that he had an appointment and would see me in an hour. No other information was disclosed. My mom was here, so she got to witness something that was probably scary.

A little back note. My brother, the middle child, has always kind of been the father figure. He was always there to help me. He taught me a lot and well kind of holds me to a standard of doing things better than he did at my age. This has gone on for as long as I can remember. Its not in a mean way. I know it comes from a very loving place. Although he doesn’t say ‘love’. I understand. I get it. And I love him for wanting me to be the best I can. But sometimes…..I fear that I am a disappointment to him

For that entire hour, I repeatedly texted, with no response. I started getting anxious. What did I do wrong? My mind started racing, going over every little thing that I might have done or said or did he see me somewhere. Was I doing something I shouldn’t have. It got so bad that I was bawling my eyes out. All of this was explained to my brother and he said he will just show up from now on that way I don’t sit for an hour crying.


Merry Christmas Guys. I hope you have a great holiday.

#Lyrics Let It Be-The Beatles

When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom
Let it be

And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom
Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom
Let it be

And when the broken-hearted people
Living in the world agree
There will be an answer
Let it be

For though they may be parted there is
Still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer
Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Yeah, there will be an answer
Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom
Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom
Let it be

And when the night is cloudy
There is still a light that shines on me
Shine until tomorrow
Let it be

I wake up to the sound of music
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom
Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be
There will be an answer
Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be
There will be an answer
Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom
Let it be

 

I love The Beatles. I don’t know about you. One of my favorite is yellow submarine. I think because it was so easy to memorize at a young age. There are so many songs that I like from them. I love that Across the Universe, the movie, is only beatles songs. It may be over 2 hours long but I can just keep watching it over and over.

My husband got into rock music right around the time that I met him. He was only listening to modern rock music. And I thought that’s not right. A lot of these artists today are inspired by so many of the older generations. I thought he needed to learn the classics, like the Beatles.

This song was written by Paul McCartney. He wrote it after dreaming about his mother who passed about 10 years prior. Writing this song calmed his nerves and anxiety. The words of wisdom that his mother spoke calmed him.

The music is a big part of this song. It is not your typical rock song and not your typical Beatles song. To me, this song means that although I may have a disorder. Although I may be anxious pretty much 6 days out of the week. Sometimes, I just need to let my worries be.

 

Merry Christmas guys! I hope, at least for today, we can all let our worries be and enjoy the day. I hope your Christmas is as beautiful as you are.
