Not Another Lonely Day

April 12, 2010

I had no idea that listening to Ben Harper could be very depressing. I mean, he has some jolly tunes, but most of them were really about loneliness. Even Jack Johnson had the same miserable tone on some of his songs.

I am currently listening to Ben Harper’s Another Lonely Day. I used to like this a lot. But I find it depressing now. The song is perfect for beach afternoons, but at 4PM, when everybody is in a hurry to get home and watch their favorite shows on the boob tube, the sad and tearful lyrics of Ben Harper’s song was just not a good fit. Maybe I liked it during a time in my life when I was not generally happy yet or when I was still unsure of who I was and where I stood.

My point: It’s not just “Tell me who your friends are, and I’ll tell you who you are” for me. It’s also, “Tell me what your favorite song is, and I’ll tell you what disposition you have” that applies. I guess I should try to analyze my current favorite songs and see what they can reveal about me. 🙂

Tearful Rhapsody

March 28, 2010

I look at you now, and I just know
That the time has come to let you go.

We loved each other the best we knew how,
But all the love in the world is not enough now.

The ring that once bound two people together
Now feels like cold metal, built to smother.

The bed that once seemed like a world so big
Is now too small for two different worlds to fit.

The nights that were spent in each other’s embrace
Are now just nights that pud an end to days.

The mornings that were always shiny and bright
Are just days that end up as a really cold night.

The hearts that once beat with a love so real
Are now homes to wounds that never seem to heal.

The touch that once burned with all the fiery passion
Is now a touch that hurts, a touch with no emotion.

The eyes that used to see only each other
Now flow with tears that couldn’t fall any faster.

So now, my love, I am finally setting you free;
I’ll never have the courage to say these things to thee.

I am writing this letter as my apology
And my thanks for the love you’ve given me.

No other woman can ever love her man
The way I did. I loved you the best I can.

And no other heart can break like mine does now;
No other person can cry as much as I had done now.

Maybe we will, one day, see each other again,
But until then, we know that this is the end.
