Day 15

Day 15 - a song that describes you

"Jesus Christ" by Brand New, from their album "The Devil and God are Raging inside Me"

Anybody that knows me really well already knows this song is one of the most important songs in my life, and one that I feel speaks a lot about where I am and how I feel about life at the moment. Actually, if you haven't checked out the entire that this song comes from, check it out because it is one bof the most personal and beautiful albums I've ever heard all of my life. The lyrics...describe me perfectly in a lot of ways and I love them:

Jesus Christ, that's a pretty face
The kind you'd find on someone that could save
If they don't put me away
It'll be a miracle

Do you believe you're missing out?
That everything good is happening somewhere else
With nobody in your bed
The night is hard to get through

And I will die all alone
And when I arrive I won't know anyone

Jesus Christ, I'm alone again
So what did you do those three days you were dead?
Because this problem is going to last
More than the weekend

Jesus Christ, I'm not scared to die
But I'm a little bit scared of what comes after
Do I get the gold chariot
Or do I float through the ceiling

Or do I divide and pull apart
Because my bright is too slight to hold back all my dark
This ship went down in sight of land
And at the gates does Thomas ask to see my hands?

I know you're coming in the night like a thief
But I've had some time, O Lord, to hone my lying technique
I know you think that I'm someone you can trust
But I'm scared I'll get scared and I swear I'll try to nail you back up
So do you think that we could work out a sign
So I'll know it's you and that it's over so I won't even try
I know you're coming for the people like me
But we all got wood and nails
And we turn out hate in factories
We all got wood and nails
And we turn out hate in factories
We all got wood and nails
And we sleep inside of this machine

Day 16

Day 16 - a song that you used to love but now hate

"Here is Gone" by the Goo Goo Dolls

For some reason, it's a song I loved initally but the radio and movie soundtracks have overused it and now I'm like over it, although sometimes I still play it to pick up my spirits bc it kinda has a peppy tune to it. I definitely do not hate it though, but I definitely am weary to it.

Day 17

Day 17 - a song that you hear often on the radio

"Raise your Glass" by P!nk

"So if you're too school for cool"...really P!nk? "Don't be fizzy just get dizzy"...oh P!nk...I am disappointed after the masterpiece of her last album that was introspective and beautiful Funhouse. Definitely overplayed although I can see why - it's a generic partystarter and yada yada yada.
