My heart says, I love you, but I know that’s bad
I know that, you’d argue,
but those times have fade-ed
Our silence rains heavy
Our Eyes fill with tears
It seems like, how are you, is all that we have
I posted a picture,
I knew that you’d laugh
These Facebook emojis are all that we have
Our silence looms heavy
O’er words that were said
In binding agreement, there’s no knot to be read
I sing in my sorrow
I sing like a beast
My wound seem all shallow
But did cut deep
I’m dying from sorrow
I’m dying to fade
Last words that echo
As you fade away
It seems like tomorrow is too far away
It feels like I love you
But nothing to say
Only how are?
I hope that you stay.
A bit late but I think this is appropriate. I’m sad and happy and desirous and needful. Caring and wanting. The melody is almost a lullaby and the lyrics speak of the sweet sadness.
This is the 30 or so songs that I listened to before work forced me to remove my headphones. Just thought I’d share. It’s a pretty eclectic mix of things that I like.
This song speaks to an internal truth. And some of the lines are especially appropriate.
Shout out to Athena Scalzi for featuring this song.
I listen to many songs that are arguably very sad and, perhaps, completely depressing. One of my favorite bands is Bella Morte (beautiful death) and they sing almost exclusively about the pain of living and death.
But this, this is the most depressing song I’ve ever heard. Because in my time I have lived and loved and lost. And while losing someone you love for any reason whether it was death, distance, divergent desires, or misconception, hurts; that isn’t the worst pain you can feel.
The worst pain you can feel is hope. Seems crazy but hear me out. Hope can be a wonderful thing. But misplaced hope is destruction. It eats its way through everything you are until you are left riddled with holes filled with pain.
So, the most depressing song, for reals:
I woke up to your love
But I know, your love is false
I woke up to your kiss
But I know, you’ll be gone in the morn
I woke up in your arms
But I know, you’ll hold me no more
I woke up all alone
And I knew
You’d be laughing
In the dawn
We all are looking for something
a song that gives me chills
