Starting to look like Ms. Know-it-all
Can't take her own advice
Can't find pieces of peace of mind, I cry
More than I want to admit
But I can't lie to myself, to anyone
You're both the fire and the water that extinguishes it.
You're the narrator, the protagonist, and the sidekick.
You're the storyteller and the story told.
You are somebody's something, but you are also your you.

Yay, another double post! >:3

Quote from: The Breach by Dustin Tebbutt
If all you've ever wanted was a dream
Then you know that I can't help you
But did I show you love
In the author of my fate
'Cause you know you left a hollow
Where your body cut an alcove
Did I show you love
'Cause the silence never stayed
It's a breach I'll never cover
It's a breach I'll never cover

reasoning and youtube for song
When you lose someone, it hurts. A lot. There's a hole where they once were. So losing a friend's mum this week, I've had this going around and around in my head. There's always going to be a breach that family can never cover.

Interested to hear other people's lyrics of the week. What's been stuck in your head? :)

Hozier -- Sedated
Quote
Just a little rush, babe
To feel dizzy, to derail the mind of me
Just a little hush, babe
Our veins are busy but my heart's in atrophy
Any way to distract and sedate
Adding shadows to the walls of the cave

Line-by-line:

-This is about taking drugs. Just a little bit -- like telling yourself you're not an addict
-The purpose is to feel a bit numb, and stop whatever you're thinking
-The drugs start to make your mind feel a bit more quiet
-The drugs are to help get over a heartbreak
-Any method will do
-Using the drugs is making you lose touch with reality and what really matters (reference to Plato's Allegory of the Cave)

I've been listening to Hozier constantly for the past week. Send help. The lyrics really speak to me, especially since this song describes the first half of 2017 perfectly for me. I was dealing with depression and a breakup, and I was using drugs to cope. Really meaningful lyrics.

Quote from: Poet by Bastille
Obsession, it takes control
Obsession, it eats me whole
I can't say the words out loud
So in a rhyme I wrote you down
Now you'll live through the ages
I can feel your pulse in the pages

@poet I blame you for all the Bastille music I've been listening to, I'd forgotten how much I like their songs.

I know, it's a verse and a chorus, I'm cheating (I couldn't decide)

One Day - Logic ft. Ryan Tedder

Quote
(One day)
I'ma do it like I never did it
(One day)
I'ma have the courage to go out and get it
(One day)
Do what I love and support my girl
(One day)
I'ma shake up the whole world

And maybe one day I'll be wiser
'Cause maybe one day I'll be further from here
Put all of my faith in tomorrow
Dark days keep me up all night
Only thing I know, it's gonna be alright

♪♪ Pray for you - Jaron Lowenstein ♪♪ Old song... but I can't help but laugh n sing along every time I hear it!!

Lyrics
I haven't been to church since I don't remember when
Things were goin' great 'til they fell apart again
So I listened to the preacher as he told me what to do
He said you can't go hatin' others who have done wrong to you
Sometimes we get angry, but we must not condemn
Let the good Lord do His job and you just pray for them
I pray your brakes go out runnin' down a hill
I pray a flowerpot falls from a window sill
and knocks you in the head like I'd like to
I pray your birthday comes and nobody calls
I pray you're flyin' high when your engine stalls
I pray all your dreams never come true
Just know where ever you are honey, I pray for you
I'm really glad I found my way to church
'Cause I'm already feelin' better and I thank God for the words
Yeah I'm goin' to take the high road
And do what the preacher told me to do
You keep messin' up and I'll keep prayin' for you
I pray your tire blows out at 110
I pray you pass out drunk with your best friend
and wake up with his and her tattoos
I pray your brakes go out runnin' down a hill
I pray a flowerpot falls from a window sill
and knocks you in the head like I'd like to
I pray your birthday comes and nobody calls
I pray you're flyin' high when your engine stalls
I pray all your dreams never come true
Just know where ever you are, near or far, in your house or in your car,
Wherever you are honey, I pray for you
Someone told me to grow up yesterday. I immediately banned that person from ever riding my unicorn!

Rebecca Sugarís Time Adventure is devastatingly gorgeous  :'(

I love the idea of time being both something that brings change and that remains the same, reliable. It was a beautiful way to end an amazing show and with graduation around the corner, it is quite fitting for the bittersweet feeling I have.

🎶One friend left to sell clothes
One works down by the coast
One had two kids but lives alone
One's brother overdosed
One's already on his second wife
One's just barely getting by
But these people raised me and I can't wait to go home

And I'm on my way, I still remember
This old country lanes
When we did not know the answers
And I miss the way you make me feel, it's real
We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill🎶
Not really sure why... but I LOVE this song!😍
