Lyric Edition

"It seems that all my bridges have been burned,
But you say that’s exactly how this grace thing works.
It’s not the long walk home that will change this heart,
But the welcome I receive with the restart."

"I'm losing you and it's... effortless."

"Because death is just so full and man so small."

"Amongst the vending machines and year-old magazines in a place where we only say goodbye,
It stung like a violent wind that our memories depend on a faulty camera in our minds.
But I knew that you were a truth I would rather lose than to have never lain beside at all,
And I looked around at all the eyes on the ground as the TV entertained itself. "

"You loved me 'cause I'm fragile
When I thought that I was strong."

"No, I'm not alright
I know that I'm not right
A steering wheel don't mean you can drive
A warm body don't mean I'm alive

No, I'm not alright
I know that I'm not right
Feel like I travel but I never arrive
I wanna thrive not just survive."

"Every sentiment hangs around,
No longer than a minute or two.
I find I keep falling for love.
But I can’t seem to follow through.
So run, little rabbit, run..."

"You're not the first thing in my life I've loved and lost.
Yeah I've thought worse things that I might be less inclined to merely just shrug off.
I took the fire escape and made it out alive,
Yeah I still burn from time to time but I've a healing hand against my side."

"You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness.
Like the resignation to the end, always the end."

"Tell me what you want to hear.
Something that'll light those ears?
I'm sick of all the insincere."

"And I am guilty just like you
And I will never save myself
And all my formulas and secret recipes
Will never take away the pain
But I'll find healing in His wounds
And I'll find warmth in Mother's eyes
Cause every drop of blood
And every tear that's cried
Confirms that life is beautiful "

"I know that things have changed
But that won't change the way that you've changed me"

" And love is not a victory march,
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah."

These are all some of my favorite lyrics. They are words strung together that make me actually feel something. They are words that when I think about I go; "Wow that's so true." Or; "Thats exactly how I feel!" I like relatable lyrics and lyrics put in an abstract way that most people wouldn't think about. I thought I'd share with you these impactful lyrics. I love music. :)
