Lyrics I’m Loving

“I was a flight risk with a fear of fallin’… a careless man’s careful daughter.”

Taylor Swift – “Mine”

“Dear God won’t you please send someone here who will love me for me? Who will love me for me – not for what I have done or what I will become. Who will love me for me? ‘Cus nobody has shown me what love – what love really means.”

JJ Heller – “What Love Really Means”

“Safety pin me to your chest, so I can stay close. Please don’t leave me in this mess, because I am this close to unravelling. Unravelling. Don’t give up on me now. This can all be mended. We can iron this out. It can all be mended. I’m tearing at the seams. It can all be mended. It can all be mended now.”

The Autumn Film – “Mended”

“All I can taste is this moment… sooner or later, it’s over… and you can’t fight the tears that ain’t comin’… And I don’t want the world to see me, ‘cus I don’t think that they’d understand…”

Goo Goo Dolls – “Iris”

“If you were a boat, my darlin’, a boat, my darlin’, I’d be the wind at your back. If you were afraid my darlin’, afraid my darlin’, I’d be the courage you lack.”

JJ Heller – “The Boat Song”

“Felt like a pearl when I was holdin’ your hand.”

The Band Perry – “Lasso”

“Scenes of you come rushing through; you are breaking me down. So break me into pieces that will grow in the ground. I know that I deserve to die for the murder in my heart, so be gentle with me, Jesus, as you tear me apart… I begin to see reality for the first time in my life. I know that I’m a shadow, but I’m dancing in Your light. Teach me to be humble. Call me from the grave. Show me how to walk with You upon the waves and breathe into my spirit. Breathe into my veins until only love remains.”

JJ Heller – “Only Love Remains”

“If I die young, bury me in satin. Lay me down on a bed of roses. Sink me in the river at dawn. Send me away with the words of a love song.”

The Band Perry – “If I Die Young”

  1. my favorite line from “if i die young” is “a penny for my thoughts, oh no, i deserve a dollar, they’re worth so much more, after i’m a gonner”

  2. This is a sad thing for me to admit.

    I have a real problem hearing and understanding lyrics in songs. Now if I really commit to knowing what somebody is singing, then I can look up the words and follow along okay, but in the moment of hearing it in a song, I just can’t follow along.

    It usually sounds like jibberish to me. On occasion I come across singers that I CAN understand, but mostly I just don’t hear words. I hear tones.

    Now don’t take me wrong. While I may not know what the artist is trying to convey, I can still get great emotional connection to songs/music. In fact, I think I get to hear music in a perspective that others do not get the pleasure of enjoying.

    I have a theory on why I think this way, but that’s neither here nor there….well…maybe there, but not now…

    • It’s sad for me to admit that I miss out on the part that you seem to get. I’ve recently been trying to just enjoy music by experiencing and loving the sounds but “trying” seems to defeat the purpose.

      It’s interesting that the thing that comes so naturally to you eludes me completely.

  3. I play music. I’m a bassist. So I’ve always had to listen “deeper” into music, just to hear what each instrument is doing. I hear the singing as an instrument. While it’s nice. It’s only a piece of the whole.

    Still, my theory is weak. If I did in fact listen to music in it’s separate pieces, then why can I not isolate the singing and decipher the lyrics?

    If you keep trying listening to music like that, it will eventually become natural. So the “trying” thing wouldn’t be a real issue anymore. Or at least I don’t think it would.

  4. Does being a bassist mean that you can spontaneously break into wicked solo?

    Also (I’m clearly musically ignorant) does it mean that you play a bass guitar in a band or that you play an enormous violin-type thing for an orchestra?

What are your thoughts on life, the universe, and everything?
