Lyrical II

I was driving home from work today, when a song literally stopped me in my tracks. I sat there listening to it, and melting into the lyrics. Melting into every word they said. I’m pretty sure that the guy in the truck next to me at the stoplight thought I was crazy, but I was really feeling it today. It hit me a place so deep, it was just one of those great music moments. The Lumineers really got me good today with Stubborn Love.

She’ll tear a hole in you, the one you can’t repair
But I still love her, I don’t really care

The song comes out guns blazing with this one, she will tear a hole in you. One that you can’t repair. I’ve been feeling a lot of that lately. A hole that swallows you whole, something that makes you toss at night. Something that makes you want to have a really good cry. Yet, you still love them. You still let them rock your world, even if they aren’t worth it.

It’s better to feel pain, than nothing at all
The opposite of love’s indifference
So pay attention now, I’m standing on your porch screaming out
And I won’t leave until you come downstairs

My favorite lines in the entire song, just happen to be it’s better to feel pain, than nothing at all. I would rather have a few great cries, than sit on the sidelines and not care. In the feelings category, I regret nothing.  I may tell people that I care about them, when they don’t care about me and feel rejected, but at least I get it off my chest. At least I feel something. Sometimes I feel a little too much, but I’m lucky. I may not have a happy ending yet, but I will. I will stand at your porch screaming out, may be that will work. Indifference is the worst thing  you can feel about someone.

Keep your head up, my love

Someone said this to me, well not exactly the my love part, the other night. I don’t think he meant it, or anything he said that night. But, hearing that from someone stopped me in my tracks. Probably because the other things he said were pretty powerful, but it started with that.  Keep your head up, it sounds so simple. But, when you are stuck looking at the ground, it sounds pretty great.

I’ll have to say this to leave it off, The Lumineers said it best,”I can’t be told, ah, ah, it can’t be done“. Don’t let anyone tell you that it can’t be done.

Love, Lindsey

I love you better now.

It has been one world-wind lately in my life. From being at school and trying to finish the craziest semester of my life, I finally have a minute to breathe. What do I want to do with my free time? I really felt like blogging. Believe it or not I have missed this part of my life, but free-time just really didn’t exist for me at school.

So naturally when I get back to blogging, I want to talk about something that got me through the semester, music. I listened to a lot of soundtracks and Broadway to get me through the craziness. I won’t talk about that, because it’ll be super boring for most people who don’t get the fun of show-tunes.

Ed Sheeran is a new first love of mine, it wasn’t just the A Team that caught my attention but really his duet with Taylor Swift. Then, I started to get smart and listen to more of his stuff. That being said, Lego House is probably one of my top ten favorite songs of this year.

If you’re broken I will mend you and I’ll keep you sheltered from the storm that’s raging on now

We all want to be mended, and to be sheltered from the storm. We want a hero to save us from the dark corners. We should be able to save ourselves, but it doesn’t always work that way.

I’m out of touch, I’m out of love
I’ll pick you up when you’re getting down
And out of all these things I’ve done I think I love you better now
I’m out of sight, I’m out of mind
I’ll do it all for you in time
And out of all these things I’ve done I think I love you better now

Sometimes the music speaks for itself. Out of all the things I’ve done, I think I love you better now. Some times we think we need to change. We think we need to go somewhere else, to see something else because what is in front of us isn’t good enough. We think that whoever is here, isn’t what we want. Even if we know in our hearts that they are, we try to get out of sight and out of mind so they forget about us. If they forget about us, they make it real easy for us to run away.

We shouldn’t run away, we should learn from all the things we’ve done and love that person better. We should love that person more, because they aren’t anything but themselves. Which, if you think really hard is absolutely perfect in every way.

So if you feel the need to run, hopefully you love someone better after.

Love,

Lindsey
