I’m really excited to do this post. One, I said I would post more than just books on this blog. And two, music has been really huge for me the past few months. I mean, don’t get me wrong. Music has always been incredibly important to me. But lately, its even more. Every moment that I start to feel sad or down or discouraged, I immediately put on my iPod and I feel much better.
So I decided I would share my top ten songs of the moment with you guys. They aren’t in any particular order or anything, its just all the songs that I literally can’t get out of my head. I hope you can check them out and I hope you can share some of your favorite songs with me!
Click on the song title for the YouTube video and click the band name to check out their website, and enjoy some lyrics as well!
“The Langdon House” by Issues
Did I fail to mention, it’s all part of my imagination
I could actually pick and choose my loose ends
And tie a knot, but all I do is
Run and hide, it’ll get ya boy
Run and hide, all I need is a friend
My whole life has been a war, so I battle myself until I
Run and hide
“Bleak December” by Set it Off
In that bleak December,
You’re just too cold,
But I need the answer,
Before you’d fold,
You would hold your cards inside your chest,
I think I drove too far,
For that bleak December and how full of shit you are.
I can’t wait to meet you
And I can’t wait to hear your name
And sing it to the skies above
Forgive me, I’m trying to find
My calling, I’m calling at night
I don’t mean to be a bother, but have you seen this girl?
She’s been running through my dreams
And it’s driving me crazy, it seems
I’m gonna ask her to marry me
Why do I do the things that I do
And they blind you
Yet you are the only one who can see what I’ve done
Guess I’ll never know what I meant to you
This year’s been lonely but at least it’s through
I’ll write a letter to my former self
Dear sad ghost, why’d you put your heart on the shelf
Should I run away, and change my name?
or Should I, stay and fight through the night, and never close my eyes?
I’ll never close my eyes!
“Seven Years” by Saosin
That mistake was gold
I know that without you
is something that I could never do
That was why staple the eyes and
seven dates for me to sell machines
and tear on
Feet on the ground, I was lost, now I’m found
I took cover from the rain, ‘cause it was pouring down
You held me back, and now I’m on the right track
You couldn’t stop me if you wanted, ‘cause I’m never coming back
“The Haunting” by Set It Off
All I could find was an acoustic video, but check out this song. Literally, I can’t handle how much I love this song.
No one will love you like I did, will treat you like I did
So go on, wear that scarlet letter
No one will love you like I did, will you fuck you like I did
So good luck finding something better
Out on the front porch,
watching the cars as they go by
(Eighteen blue, twenty one grey)
Looking ahead for the first time that we could drive,
Out on our own,
To speed away
From the sidewalks,
Running away from the streets we knew,
Like the time we thought was made for you.
