Once again writing a post on certain lyrics of a song! Sometimes in life, You just feel like running away from circumstances, running away from where you are... that happens exactly when you know what mistakes you did in the past, for which you are suffering excessively in your present!

Rock had been a classy genre of English music, with extreme passion on skills, metals and drowsy and strong vocals, the extremism of creativity, the best for most! A partial genre of rock is “Alternative”, the modern day rock band “linkin park” is a typical example of such music! I came across their album “meteora” in 2005 and since that time, this particular track had been my one of all time favorite not because of the musical creativity involved in it, which also is brilliant but more because of its immensely meaningful lyrics! Love to hear it time and again whenever I am in a mood to analyze some fatal mistakes of my past! Seems that some part of my soul is captured in its lyrics!

It's easier to run!!
Replacing this pain with something numb!!
It's so much easier to go,
Than face all this pain here all alone!!
Something has been taken...
From deep inside of me!
A secret I've kept locked away...
No one can ever see...
Wounds so deep they never show
They never go away!!
Like moving pictures in my head
For years and years they've played...;

If I could change I would

Take back the pain I would

Retrace every wrong move that I made I would
If I could

Stand up and take the blame I would

If I could take all the shame to the grave I would

It’s easier to run...
Replacing this pain with something more!
It’s so much easier to go...
Than face all this pain here all alone!!
Sometimes I remember...
The darkness of my past ,
Bringing back these memories...
I wish I didn't have!!
Sometimes I think of letting go...
And never looking back,
And never moving forward so...
There would never be a past!!

Just washing it aside
All of the helplessness inside
Pretending I don't feel so misplaced
Is so much simpler than change

Its easier to run
Replacing this pain with something numb
Its so much easier to go
Than face all this pain here all alone

It’s easier to run
If I could change I would take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made
It’s easier to go
If I could change I would take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made I would
If I could stand up and take the blame I would
I would take all my shame to the grave

It is a fact that sometimes you relate your situation to some songs and their lyrics as they touch your heart and provide words to many unspoken thoughts.I can see plethora of emotions in your work. Is everything all right..

nice lyrics pulkit, havent heard this one....will surely chek it out....but usually i listen to songs that have a tendency to cheer me up when am sad, why listen to songs that will make you cry when you are already sad

PULKIT said...

nice point raised khushi... but apetitite for songs differs from person to person, its not a sad one, alternative rock is always too fast to be nostalgic and sad... try it a go! it might be liked by u... thanls for the comments again at my blog sis! ur support means a lot to me
