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

Oh Sweetheart,

I belong with you, you belong with me, you’re my sweetheart

That’s simple enough right? I belong with you, and you belong with me. That is beautiful and straight to the point. Why can’t all guys be like that? Why can’t we just go up to someone and say listen, I just belong with you and you just belong with me because you are my sweetheart? Life would be so much easier if everyone said what they wanted when they wanted.

I think as gender relations go we talk in code. Well, as a girl I over-analyze everything a male says to me and basically come up with the most ridiculous explanations in my head. Like most girls, I have the weird notion that if a guy isn’t texting you he doesn’t want to text you, or if he is and he says something sweet he could like you. Our logic is purely flawed though, because well boys don’t seem to put half as much energy into the whole process of texting as girls.

Like why would a guy text a girl out of the blue, but then not want to continue a conversation? I don’t think I’ll ever figure that one out, but I will be patiently waiting for the day someone says I belong with you, you belong with me, you’re my sweetheart.

If you don’t know the lyric, it’s from The Lumineers popular song. “Ho Hey”. The song is one of my new favorites and opened me up to their album which was the first album to make it to my car as a playlist in forever.

Love- We need it now Let’s hope for some

Love, I think we all need to feel love at one point or another. Not just the unconditional love from our parents, but unconditional love from another human being that doesn’t have to love us.  Although, every family dynamic is different I think we all want someone to love us who we love back.  An important component of love is hope. If we have no hope that we can love and be loved then we won’t be able to love. Hope is a funny thing, you should never give up hope.  Those feelings that you can’t see/touch are always the most important. Just because it isn’t tangible doesn’t mean it isn’t there.

So have a little hope tonight and listen to The Lumineers, maybe they’re on to something. You may be my sweetheart.

Love, Lindsey
