A Girl Drawn By Music

I’m a girl drawn by music. Drawn by lyrics. Drawn by emotion.

On Monday I shared Daughter as part of my weekly Music Monday post but I’m not done sharing. Because I haven’t been able to pull my ears away, hardly stopping to listen to anything else.

 

Because of the music. Because of the lyrics. Because of the emotion that they bring up. This is music that makes me feel something. And feel something powerful.

 

I don’t expect anyone to understand.

 

Regardless, I want to share some of the lyrics. If you read, listen and open your heart, you can’t tell me music doesn’t make you feel something.

Youth

 

Shadows settle on the place, that you left.

Our minds are troubled by the emptiness.

Destroy the middle, it’s a waste of time.

From the perfect start to the finish line.

 

And if you’re still breathing, you’re the lucky ones.

‘Cause most of us are heaving through corrupted lungs.

Setting fire to our insides for fun

Collecting names of the lovers that went wrong

The lovers that went wrong.

 

We are the reckless,

We are the wild youth

Chasing visions of our futures

One day we’ll reveal the truth

That one will die before he gets there.

 

And if you’re still bleeding, you’re the lucky ones.

‘Cause most of our feelings, they are dead and they are gone.

We’re setting fire to our insides for fun.

Collecting pictures from the flood that wrecked our home,

It was a flood that wrecked this…

 

… and you caused it…

… and you caused it…

… and you caused it…

 

Well I’ve lost it all, I’m just a silouhette,

A lifeless face that you’ll soon forget,

My eyes are damp from the words you left,

Ringing in my head, when you broke my chest.

Ringing in my head, when you broke my chest.

 

And if you’re in love, then you are the lucky one,

‘Cause most of us are bitter over someone.

Setting fire to our insides for fun,

To distract our hearts from ever missing them.

But I’m forever missing him.

 

And you caused it,

And you caused it,

And you caused it

 

 

Medicine

Pick it up, pick it all up.

And start again.

You’ve got a second chance,

you could go home.

Escape it all.

It’s just irrelevant.

 

It’s just medicine.

It’s just medicine.

 

You could still be,

what you want to,

What you said you were,

when I met you.

 

You’ve got a warm heart,

you’ve got a beautiful brain.

But it’s disintegrating,

from all the medicine.

from all the medicine.

from all the medicine.

Medicine.

 

You could still be,

what you want to,

What you said you were,

when you met me.

 

You could still be,

what you want to.

What you said you were,

when I met you.

when you met me.

when I met you.

 

Ooooooooo…

Ooooooooo…

 

 

Landfill

Throw me in a landfill

Don’t think about the consequences

Throw me in the dirt pit

Don’t think about the choices that you make

Throw me in the water

Don’t think about the splash I will create

Leave me at the altar

Knowing all the things you just escaped

 

Push me out to sea

On a little boat that you made

Out of the evergreen that you helped your father cut away

Leave me on the tracks

To wait until the morning train arrives

Don’t you dare look back

Walk away

Catch up with the sunrise

 

‘Cause this is torturous electricity

Between both of us and this is

Dangerous ’cause I want you so much

But I hate your guts

I hate you

 

So leave me in the cold

Wait until the snow covers me up

So I cannot move

So I’m just embedded in the frost

Then leave me in the rain

Wait until my clothes cling to my frame

Wipe away your tear stains

Thought you said you didn’t feel pain

 

Well this is torturous electricity

Between both of us and this is

Dangerous, ’cause I want you so much

But I hate your guts. I want you so much

But I hate your guts.

Well this is torturous

Electricity between both of us

And this is dangerous ’cause I want you so much

But I hate your guts

I want you so much but I hate your guts

 

What songs makes you feel something?

    I totally hear you about music making you feel emotions. it doesn’t do it quite the same as it used to, but there are songs that still bring me back to different spaces and times. specifically, jimmy eat world. I can’t listen to it without thinking of everything between college boyfriend and myself. the album “clarity” was ours, and i remember him playing “kill” on his acoustic guitar constantly in our bedroom. it still brings tears to my eyes because i remember how much pain he caused me, and how true some of those lyrics became when we were going through the breakup.
