#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.

Depression is sometimes hard to see

We all know that we lost Chester Bennington to death by suicide. It has been a hard thing for many of his fans, including myself, to come to terms with. Let alone his family and friends.

Although, Chester spoke about the demons in his head quite often. We didn’t always see them. He was a happy person. Or at least that is the persona he put out. Which we all thought was fine. He made us smile. He understood our pain. He spoke the words that were too hard for us to mutter. Chester truly spoke for a generation.

If it was this hard to see the signs of what was to come, then are we missing something from our own family and friends? One thing that has come from these tragic events is the out pouring of people speaking up. We are breaking the silence. We are saying ‘Hey I have a mental illness and it’s ok’. For too long, people have feared those who have mental illness’s. For too long, these people have been picked on, judged or told they need to be put away. That’s not okay. We are human. We are people and we are just like everyone else.
