Song Out of Context

Song. What do you think of when you hear the word? Do you think of what the song inspires? Or maybe a hard time that a song got you through? Or maybe song motivates you to get things done. No matter the case, song has kept us comforted for centuries, and will continue to do so.

For me song means a lot. Song plays in the background almost anytime I’m with friends, when I’m doing schoolwork, or nothing in particular. I enjoy so many different bands and artists that I couldn’t even name most of them.

I’m not sure why, but these lyrics appeal to me.

“I’m a traveler of both time and space…” ~Kashmir – Led Zeppelin

“Hey don’t write yourself off yet
It’s only in your head you feel left out or looked down on
Just try your best
Try everything you can
And don’t you worry what they tell themselves when you’re away…” ~The Middle – Jimmy Eat World

“And all the roads we have to walk are winding
And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
There are many things that I
Would like to say to you but I don’t know how

Because maybe, you’re gonna be the one that saves me
And after all, you’re my wonderwall…” ~Wonderwall – Oasis

 

“My eyes are open wide
By the way
I made it through the day…”

“I just saw Halley’s comet She waved
Said, “Why you always running in place?”
Even the man in the moon disappeared
Somewhere in the stratosphere

Tell my mother
Tell my father
I’ve done the best I can
To make them realize
This is my life
I hope they understand
I’m not angry, I’m just saying
Sometimes goodbye is a second chance…” ~Second Chance – Shinedown

 

“I don’t mind you comin’ here
And wastin’ all my time, time…” ~Just What I Needed – Cars

 

***In no way am I depressed, doing drugs, or anything else that some people may associate with some of these lyrics. I just like them. Don’t read too much into this post. This is simply about some lyrics I like, taken out of the song’s context.
