#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 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.

#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 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 🙂

#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.
