Songs with Meaning
I don't know about you, but so many times I listen to music and find songs that in some way apply to my life. Often when I'm feeling depro I skip through my playlist listen to all the sad songs and then there is always this one that fits my situation perfectly, even if I've listened to that particular song a million times, it makes me feel so much better and for a few weeks I just cant get enough of it.
About three month ago I had one of those weeks where everything just goes wrong. I had just found out that my Abby, my one dog, was killed by a car, which was really hard on me because my dogs are all like my children. I was also down because I didn't (and still don't) see any future for myself. I felt worthless and like no one would even realize if I just vanished off the face of the earth. I had reached that point where nothing matters anymore, because nothing could really make me feel worse, I was lying on my bed and Lullaby started playing. Lullaby being one of my absolute favorite songs I always listen to the words, but in that moment it just seemed as if that song was written for my situation. I listened to it on repeat for about 20 minutes and it just made me feel so much better and gave me a bit of hope. This is one of the reasons I focus on the meanings of songs and not simply on how they sound.
