Life’s soundtrack

Behold the lyrics to my two theme songs at the moment. These sum up where I am at….where my thoughts are and can’t seem to move away from.

I’ll take your words as if you were talking to me.
Say what I know you’ll say and say it through your teeth.
With pride keep every failure in.
And with pride hold on to the sinking.
Now in the deep and down your heart moves.
Now in the deep and down, I don’t know how but I know I want out.
Wait for something better.
Will I know when it can be us?
Maybe that doesn’t mean us.
Wait for something better?
I shouldn’t, it’s not enough.
Pull one excuse from another.
Just one excuse from another.
This time it means us. stop.

(“Clarity”, Jimmy Eat World)

Carve your heart out yourself
Hopelessness is your cell
Since you’ve drawn out these lines
Are you protected from trying times?

Man it takes a silly girl to lie about the dreams she has
Lord it takes a lonely one to wish that she had never dreamt at all
Oh Lord, now, there you go with hope again
Oh, you’re so sure I’ll be leaving in the end

Dig a ditch deep enough
To keep you clear of the sun
You’ve been burned more than once
You don’t think much of trust

Man it takes a silly girl to lie about the dreams she has
Lord it takes a lonely one to wish that she had never dreamt at all
Oh Lord, now, there you go with hope again
But I’ll be sure your secret is safe with me
Oh, you’re so sure I’ll be leaving in the end
Treating me like I’m already gone

But I’m not, I will stay where you are always
I will stay, I will stay, I will stay (all of now)

(“Carve your heart out yourself”, Dashboard Confessional)

The bit about “silly girl…lonely girl” really hit me. I’m still trying to figure out which one I am
