i’ve been feeling depressed lately (failure. guilt. sickly. bored/hard to please) so i’ve been spending a lot of time in bed. seeing these guys live last week was one of the most emotionally relieving concerts i’ve ever been to. all the words that come up on the thesaurus under “amazing” don’t even cut it. it was a great experience, and although this song is how i’m feeling as of late, i still find it incredibly beautiful and somewhat uplifting.
this is a tough one, since i pay most attention to the lyrics of songs, but the first one that comes to mind is modest mouse - talking shit about a pretty sunset
oh noose, tied myself in, tied myself too tight/ lookin’ kind of anxious in your cross armed stance/ like a bad tempered prom queen at a homecoming dance/ and i claim i’m not excited with my life anymore/ so i blame this town, this job, these friends/the truth is it’s myself/ and i’m trying to understand myself/ and pinpoint where i am/ by the time i get it figured out/ i’ve changed the who damn plan/ oh noose, tied myself in, tied myself too tight.
talking shit about a pretty sunset/ blanketing opinions that i’ll probably regret soon/ i’ve changed my mind so much i can’t even trust it/ my mind changed me so much i can’t even trust myself.
a relatively simple song. i guess it has mostly sentimental feelings for me, if anything. my brother started making me mixed tapes around age 10, him age 14. then it turned into cds. one of my favorite compilations via chris was given to me when i was beginning my freshman year of high school - he was beginning his freshman year of college. the cd, as cliche as it sounds, really helped me cope with the self doubt and insecurities i was feeling being in a new school of 400 girls i didn’t know, some i didn’t care to know. during such a rough teenage time, that cd helped a lot, and this song was on it. i still listen to talking shit about a pretty sunset when i’m feeling nostalgic, moody, lost, or just needing some isaac brock time.
since the last time i started a project to get my mind off of something troubling was so successful (my tumblr, awww) i am trying something new: a silly 30 day song challenge. could be fun, right? here goes..
01. your favorite song (post an mp3 if you can).
the process of deciding upon a FAVORITE SONG would most likely lead me to insanity and mental breakdowns, so i will post my favorite song (currently). i think this should suffice.
