New Music! :]

I dreamed I was missing
You were so scared
But no one would listen
Cause no one else cared

After my dreaming
I woke with this fear
What am I leaving
When I’m done here

So if you’re asking me
I want you to know

[-Chrous-]

When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I’ve done
Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed

And don’t resent me
And when you’re feeling empty
Keep me in your memory

Leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest.

Don’t be afraid
I’ve taken my beating
I’ve shared what I made

I’m strong on the surface
Not all the way through
I’ve never been perfect
But neither have you

So if you’re asking me
I want you to know

[-Chorus-]
When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I’ve done
Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be misssed.


Don’t resent me
And when you’re feeling empty
Keep me in your memory

Leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest

Forgetting
All the hurt inside
You’ve learned to hide so well

Pretending
Someone else can come and save me from myself
I can’t be who you are

[-Chorus-]
When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I’ve done
Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed

Don’t resent me
And when you’re feeling empty
Keep me in your memory

Leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest

Forgetting
All the hurt inside
You’ve learned to hide so well

Pretending
Someone else can come and save me from myself
I can’t be who you are
I can’t be who you are.”

SURPRISINGLY, that is the lyrics to the new song “Leave Out All the Rest”, by Linkin Park. I’ve always liked the band, but for totally different reasons — they were usually the band that got me pumped up, also a good band to listen to when you are in the “I’m a teenager and I hate the world” mode we all get in. =) But this song is really touching because it hits on a one of the key thoughts that scare me.

Will I make any significant imprint on this world before I die and become nonexistant? Will I touch a single person’s heart before I’m gone, or will a single person truly miss seeing me or talking to me if I’m not around any more?

A tad depressing, but it’s not meant to be. It’s more scary, if anything else. To fear that you might not mean anything.
And I don’t mean with my family — I’m sure SOME of my family would sadden at the thought of my absence. But my friends? Strangers that know my “acquaintenance”? Am I just another part of their daily rountine, or could I do something that made me exceptionally extraordinary, so that someone remembered me as a good, as a loving person?

I’d like to think so. And if it’s not true now, I will strive to make an impact. One someone. Now, or thirty years down the road. The things that worries me, is that no one ever knows how long they have in this life to MAKE that impact.
I love this band. Forgive the long lyrics, but I had to post the whole thing to get the effect. Actually, you really have to hear it to get the whole effect. It’s such a tempered down, almost “slow” song for them. But I love it, and the lyrics are very moving.
I’ve also discovered a band named “Blue Foundation”. Didn’t listen to them till today, when a good friend of mine recommended them. They are a new entry into my “calm down” playlist, joining the list with Enya, Paramore (another surprise), Burnwell, Beethoven, Perry Farwell, & Collective Soul. :))

It’s bedtime, toodles!
