Birdy: the Lorde before Lorde.
"I’m coming out of my cage, doing just fine.
Gotta gotta be down, because I want it all.
I just can’t look, it’s killing me.
And taking control.”
I am not happy with myself. I believe Relient K said it best, “Who I am hates who I’ve been.” There are a lot of things I need to figure out.
Please do me and yourself a favor by listening to this cover in its entirety. I feel it properly brings out the underlying sadness and unfulfillment of the song. If those strings from 2:08 to 2:38 do not resonate within or tug on your heartstrings, I’m afraid there is nothing else for you to hear here.
I feel like I am so good at giving relationship advice, and helping other people figure out their situations. But for whatever reason, I can’t seem to figure out my own.
I’m just exhausted.
Here’s a sad tune I haven’t listened to in awhile. Another of my all time favorites.
I know that no one really reads this except for a couple people (thank you, B), so I’m kind of just using it as a semi-private journal at this point.
I guess I don’t really even have much to say in this post. I’m still just wondering why I’m currently feeling so anxious about so many things in my life…And I suppose it’s probably because I’m always anxious about something or another.
Anyway, here’s a picture to spruce up an otherwise boring post of something I would rather be doing than continuing my current life of routine mediocrity:
This song is making me happily sad this week. I know that doesn’t make sense, but that is how I feel.
I am so incredibly torn about a lot of things in my life right now. And I don’t like that.
"I know this feeling from long ago.
I wondered, “Was it gone?” Now I know.
When she calls, don’t send her my way
When it hurts, you’ll know it’s the right thing
Michigan’s in the rearview now,
keep your hands where I can see them.
You took the words right out of my mouth
when you knew that I would need them.
What am I supposed to do now without you?
I have listened to this song about fifteen times in the past two days, and am on pace to do fifteen more before the end of the day. Because, damn, it’s hitting the spot this week.
