Do you feel more like this rather than prancing around singing about halos??

Who’s with me?

halo … hello!! … hell!!!

Here’s how it starts. I hear this song and I think: “woow, that’s great. i can totally relate”. After some time I hear this song and go “Yeah, right”. But that’s just for a few moments till “Hell, F#*k, Damn” kicks in.

Happened to anyone else?

Nasty feeling. Just like hearing Santa’s not for real.

Pain is weird isn’t it? You’re tempted to hate it but then you realize it’s how you learn; about yourself, about others. So you try to chase the hating feelings away till it’s just you two left: you and the pain staring each other in the eye, raising eyebrows, grinning teeth.

I made a poll here a while ago. Is it better to wear your heart on your sleeve and risk getting hurt or should we protect it in an attempt to keep the pain away? Two thirds of the people who took part in the poll opted for wearing your heart on your sleeve. Do you think that’s best?

Time after time i find myself coming back to this place. My den if you will. I drag my wounded limbs back here, leaving blood stains all over the place. I look back and i see it’s all happened before. So what’s the lesson that keeps escaping me? What am I failing to learn? That people will always hurt you cause it’s their nature to put their needs first without a second thought? I’ve learned that. That you’re bound to get hurt somehow just because you’re alive? I’ve learned that too.

I seem to miss that precious lesson that will keep my soul from bleeding.

Any advice?

The Gathering

The best feature of the internet is not giving you the stuff you’re looking for, but giving you stuff you never knew existed that you happen to love.

That’s what happened with this next video that came up while I was searching for the videos below. Enjoy!

The Promise You Made

One of the best of all time. If you’ve heard it, you’ve loved it. haven’t you? 🙂

I know, what’s up with the hair, right? :))

And here’s a pretty cool cover I found. I was really surprised to see these guys cover this song.

And if you do love the song and are wondering about the lyrics, here they are, to the sweet music.

The point to all this? A great song stays with you for ages. Which was exactly what happened with this one. Thank you for the music guys!

… and many more

As I’m approaching 1.000 views I’m thinking it’s time to thank the people who read my posts or listened to the songs on here. The stats tell me that one picture in particular sent the most viewers to my page so here’s thanks to the author of the pic (starry_eyed_kid – don’t know the person but ‘well done mate’ :D). And more thanks to the almost 1.000 people who stopped by (most of them looking like they know a thing or two about broken hearts, feeling broken etc since that’s what they were looking for when probably Google sent them here).

So long story short, here’s the infamous picture

and a gift to you all. Enjoy and come again!
