Medley of The Night

just stuck hollow and alone
and the fault is my own and the fault is my own

I wanna heal, I wanna feel what I thought was never real
I wanna let go of the pain I’ve felt so long
erase all the pain ’till it’s gone
I wanna heal, I wanna feel like I’m close to something real
I wanna find something I’ve wanted all along
somewhere I belong

[Linkin Park – Somewhere I Belong]

I tried so hard, and got so far
but in the end it doesn’t even matter
I had to fall to lose it all
but in the end it doesn’t even matter

[Linkin Park – In The End]

for what is a man? what has he got?
if not himself – then he has naught
to say the things he truly feels
and not the words of one who kneels
the record shows I took the blows
and did it my way

[Frank Sinatra – My Way]


tonight saw a parade of songs that for the rest of the world might seem unimportant or insignificant. but I found three that struck something in me. it was the three songs above, in chronological order, and — amazingly enough — they seemed to portray the chronological order of what truly happened: want – try – fail – fall down – get up and get going.

people come and go and try and fail and succeed and… well, the world just keeps spinning no matter what lousy hole you’re stuck in. I guess I should be thankful that time and space and everyday itinerary saves me a lot of energy and helps me stabilize myself.

my favorite part? here goes:
the record shows I took the blows and did it my way

for the record: no regrets, I wouldn’t have it any other way, and I have every confidence that whatever will be thrown at me next will not be something I cannot handle.

arrogant? well, we need to be to survive. that’s the name of the game.

Behind These Hazel Eyes

Here I am, once again
I’m torn into pieces
Can’t deny it, can’t pretend
Just thought you were the one
Broken up deep inside
But you won’t get to see the tears I cry
Behind these hazel eyes

Behind These Hazel Eyes – Kelly Clarkson

what’s wrong with falling down

"What’s wrong with falling down? You can always stand up again. If you
look up at the blue sky after falling down, it is stretching endlessly
and limitlessly, and it smiles at me .. I’m alive." — Kitou Aya

i can walk by myself — from diesta’s blog

here’s something i find quite beautiful:

[a tiny flower is blooming inside my heart
the unwithering flower you gave to me
i don’t fear the things i believe in anymore
because i have become strong
i am lucky to have met you
i was proud holding your hand
even though we look up at different skies now
see… i can walk by myself]

is this about goodbyes? a bit sad, but nevertheless comforting.
