A song that describes you

Well, this is a tough one. I mean, I know so many songs, but there is not one I could use to describe myself. I asked on the blog and on Twitter, and because my reach is rather limited, I had one answer. Jeff suggested a song from k.d. Lang. I thought I didn’t know it, but when I heard it, I did. It’s a beautiful song. Also, if you aren’t already, please follow Jeff’s blog. He writes about music and reviews albums, he writes a weekly top 30 and puts lots of work and passion into his posts.

A song that describes me this week:

Art of Dying (with Adam Gontier) – (inside it’s) raining

 

I’m scared to look down
Never been so high
And I can’t look up with a closing mind
I’m scared to be touched
I don’t like the feel
It’s way too close
Way too real
Inside it’s raining
It never lets up
I know I’m crazy
Crazy enough to know that I’ll find a way to make this all go away
I’m scared to be me
Because I look like you
I don’t want to be somebody I never knew
I’m scared to go out
I’m so far in
I hear it’s nice
But I’ve never been
Inside it’s raining
It never lets up
I know I’m crazy
Crazy enough to know that I’ll find a way to make this all go away
I found my only out, so just forget about talking me down
I’ll put this fire out and stop this burning
Inside it’s raining
It never lets up
I know I’m crazy
Crazy enough to know that I’ll find a way to make this all go away
Inside it’s raining
It never lets up
I know I’m crazy
Crazy enough to know that I’ll find a way to make this all go away
Inside it’s raining, make this all go away
Inside it’s raining, make this all go away
Inside it’s raining, make this all go away
Inside it’s raining, make this all go away
Howard Benson/Johnny Hetherington

This song can be found on the album “Vices and Virtues” that this Canadian band released in 2011 (on Reprise Records).

And just now, after having written and edited this post, I thought of a song that describes me well after all.

Depeche Mode – somebody

This song was on the album “Some great reward” (1984, Mute)

I want somebody to share, share the rest of my life
Share my innermost thoughts, know my intimate details
Someone who’ll stand by my side and give me support
And in return, she’ll get my support
She will listen to me when I want to speak
About the world we live in and life in general
Though my views may be wrong, they may even be perverted
She’ll hear me out and won’t easily be converted
To my way of thinking, in fact, she’ll often disagree
But at the end of it all, she will understand me
I want somebody who cares for me passionately
With every thought and with every breath
Someone who’ll help me see things in a different light
All the things I detest I will almost like
I don’t want to be tied to anyone’s strings
I’m carefully trying to steer clear of those things
But when I’m asleep I want somebody
Who will put their arms around me and kiss me tenderly
Though things like this make me sick
In a case like this, I’ll get away with it
Martin L. Gore
So, these are my songs for today. What do you think?
