So, I've been going through a bit of a time lately, and I've been focused on that misery so much. Coming back on these forums was definitely a good idea, where you can be heard and listen to others, I can't explain what it means to me.
Anyway, I thought I would start a lighter thread, just to be a little less focused on misery I guess. I was on a run (or for what passes as a run for me), and I was thinking, what phrases or bits of songs that could pass for a theme song for BeyondBlue, in relation to how they/you helped me.
I came up with the following:
Charlie Puth; One Call away: "I'm only one call away. I'll be here to save the day. Superman got nothin' on me. I'm only one call away..."
Rudimental; Lay It All On Me: "All alone as you look through the door, nothing left to see. If it hurts and you can't take no more, lay it all on me. No you don't have to keep it under lock and key..."
Lupe Fiasco; The Show Goes On: "So no matter what you been through, no matter what you into, no matter what you see when you look outside your window. Brown grass or green grass, picket fence or barbed wire, never ever put them down you just lift your arms higher. Raise 'em 'til your arms tired, let em' know you're there, that you struggling, survivin' that you gonna persevere yeah. Ain't no body leavin', no body goin' home, even if they turn the lights out the show is goin' on."
Eminem; Not Afraid: "I'm not afraid (I'm not afraid) to take a stand (to take a stand). Everybody (everybody), come take my hand (come take my hand). We'll walk this road together, through the storm, whatever weather, cold or warm. Just letting you know that you're not alone. Holler if you feel like you've been down the same road."
Sara Bareilles; Brave: "Maybe there's a way out of the cage where you live. Maybe one of these days you can let the light in. Show me how big your brave is. Say what you wanna say And let the words fall out. Honestly, I wanna see you be brave with what you want to say and let the words fall out. Honestly I wanna see you be brave."
These are just a few. Music lets me feel a lot of what I'm already feeling, but also gives me a safe outlet for it. What do you think? Any suggestions?
I hope this isn't a stupid idea...
