Lyrics I love and can relate to

None of the following lyrics are mine. They are just a collection of some of my favourite lyrics from my favourite songs that I can relate to.

“Nobody would believe the shit that happens inside my head, it’s haunted “ Nikki Sixx, The heroine diaries. What an album and book. A massive insight into addiction and fame.

“When my time comes forget the wrong that I’ve done help me leave behind some reasons to be missed” Linkin Park, Leave out all the rest. What a beautiful song. I believe (and it’s only my opinion) that the last linkin park album was Chester Benningtons suicide note. Obviously this song is not taken from that album, it’s just one of my favourites.

“And nothing lasts forever
For all good days it’s true
I’d rather tred it all
For somehow saving you
It must have been the season
That’ve threw us out of line
Once I stood so tall
Now I’m searching for a sign” Avenged Sevenfold, Victim. I’ve shared this before. I love this song, so moving. Its about the loss of their drummer.

“But it’s alright, yeah it’s alright, said it’s alright
Easy for you to say
Your heart has never been broken
Your pride has never been stolen
Not yet, not yet, one of these days
I bet your heart ‘ll be broken
I bet your pride ‘ll be stolen
I’ll bet, I’ll bet, I’ll bet, I’ll bet
One of these days, one of these days” Foo Fighters, These days. Just a beautiful moving song.

“I know we can’t all stay here forever So I want to write my words on the face of today and they’ll paint it” Blind melon, Change. Shannon hoon (lead singer) died of a cocaine overdose. I love the name Shannon for a boy. I wanted to call my son Curtis “Shannon”, but his mum wouldn’t let me. Probably for the best in hindsight.

“And every time I try to pick it up
Like falling sand
As fast as I pick it up
It runs away through my clutching hands
But there’s nothing else I can really do
There’s nothing else I can really do
There’s nothing else I can really do
At all” A letter to Elise, The cure. Both my ex wife and I loved this song (and still do). We had no doubt what to call our first daughter.

Last one for now…..

“She’s got a smile that it seems to me
Reminds me of childhood memories
Where everything was as fresh as the bright blue sky
Now and then when I see her face
She takes me away to that special place
And if I stare too long, I’d probably break down and cry” Sweet child ó mine, Guns n roses. This song never ages for me. When I hear it, it reminds me of my youngest daughter Lauren.
