So its time I get back to one thing I do enjoy doing. For the next few days I will be dissecting some of the songs I love and have got me through some tough times, and still do. These songs are my personal faves, I could care less your opinion of the song, but ask that you do open your brain up to the content of the words and my opinion of them. And we are off. First on the list: Crossfade's "So Far Away"
"I've been changin' but you'll never see me now. Now I'm blaming you for everything."
- Not going to bother here because this is the chorus and I will address it when the time comes.
"No more holding it in. How many years can I pretend, nothing never goes the way it should. No more sitting in this place, hoping you might see it my way
Cause I don't think you ever understood. That what I'm looking for are the answers. To why these questions never go away"
-Yep. I'm not holding anything in anymore. I have spent way too much time dawdling on the past. Its time to move on. Like a person once said... "You can't forget him; But you gotta move on. You can't just lay down." Damn straight. No more pity Justin because of what happened years ago. It's time to move on. It's true I'm probably not going to be sitting in this same place soon. I want to try to get away from some negativity in my life, because like the song says I don't plan for anyone to see it my way, because its something they dont understand. I will find my own answers to every question I have in my life. That is my motivation. Answers or no answers when its all said and done I tried. Thats all that matters to me. Trying to find answers is the best motivation I got. If I don't go searching for them, I'm going to keep coming back with the same results from the same people.
"I'm so far away. I've been changin' but you'll never see me now. I'm so far away. Now I'm blaming you for everything."
-This is for everyone that has written me off in life. Left me behind. Wronged me to the point of me pushing them away. Yea I have decided to blame a lot of people for some of the shit in my life. You grow tired of blaming yourself for everything. And when you get to thinking over time, you realize...yea some is my fault but at the same time... some of it is not. so hahaha. Put that in your pipe and smoke it!
"No more waiting for the end. Of every day that I will spend. Wishing that I only had a choice. No more pushing you away. Cause I will be busy watching things going my way. Never looking back on this anymore. Because what I'm looking for are the answers. To why these questions never go away."
-Yep I am no longer going home, sitting around thinking...man i wish it was tomorrow. I'm being a bit more spontaneous. I go driving for hours just to enjoy car karaoke. There really is no better medicine (except laughter) than driving around, singing to the top of your lungs, any and everything. I'm not pushing anyone out anymore. If you fade out of my life. You did it on your own accord. I don't need to push anyone out because my itinerary is as follows: Things are going my way right now, they will continue going that way. You have to remember that just because you want something... someone else might not. You gotta know when to hold'em and know when to fold'em. And the past is the past and thats where its going to stay. Sure it molded me to who I am today and for that I am grateful. But as of recent... it is the past, my future is too open to be dragged into the drudges of the swamp that is my past.
"I've been changin' but you'll never see me now. Now I'm blaming you for everything. I'm so far away."
"Hey hey watch me wave. Goodbye to yesterday. Nothing left in my way. Hey hey I've been saved. With sun shining on my pain. Getting me through this day
Hey hey watch me wave. Goodbye to yesterday. Nothing left in my way.
Feels so good to say."
-And the best part of this entire song. The smile I am showing here lately... thats me saying goodbye to the depression. Thats my way of saying thank you to everyone that helped me. The days seem brighter lately even on a cold rainy day. And theres nothing truly left in my way except for myself and the things I allow to get in it.
"Now I'm blaming you. I'm so far away"
I love that song with a passion. I enjoy writing and listening to music. Probably always been my 2 favorite things. So I suck at writing song lyrics. So why not write about my love of a song and what it does for me. I hope the ideas I express in my writing motivate someone out there who was where I was in life to get out of that area. There's never a hole too deep for you to get out of. And the nay-sayers who say you'll never make it, offer empty promises, skip out on you when you need them, the ones who come around to bring you down... To hell with them. Do what you need to do... you can't spend your whole life worried about who you may or may not hurt. I have reached that point. I'm going to do what is necessary to keep me happy. Thats why I enjoy this song so much. Especially the line "Hey hey! Watch me wave! Good bye to yesterday!" Yesterday I wasn't a strong person, and now I'm getting there. I hope this helps someone out there as much as it does me
Peace Out Homies!
