When lyrics speak to the mind

There are a lot of songs that I love to listen to and wonder what inspired them? Some have a story behind them and some are just because they could. A good example would be a song that was recently stuck in my head for nearly a week.

The one part that keeps looping over and over is:

Look around and you’ll see that at times it feels like no one really cares
It gets me down but I’m still gonna try to do what’s right, I know that there’s
A difference between sleight of hand, and giving everything you have

Yes, there are times when I feel like the weight of the world is crushing down on me and nobody cares. No one around to help lift this heavy burden from my shoulders but I know deep down that’s not true. Just my mind playing tricks on me. Just tricks.

Then, I think about the lyrics that speak to only a select few.

The lyrics that sparked much thought for me are:

here comes the rain again
falling from the stars
drenched in my pain again
becoming who we are

as my memory rests
but never forgets what I lost
wake me up when September ends

I know there is a story behind both the songs. They speak in different tones and in different ways to those that hear it. To me they give me pleasure in knowing that I am not alone in feeling pain. Yes, we all suffer from something at some point or another in our lives but it is a part of life. It’s what makes us who we are.
