Finding new music that you love is like being stuck in a downpour. I waste so much time when I find a new artist I’m head over heels in love with. It’s just like a new relationship and that stage where you have to see that person every second of every day. It’s important to have those moments in life when you get lost in something. It’s important to waste time in the downpour. Without them we don’t grow. Without them we don’t move forward or move on. So get lost in something outside of yourself and your busyness and your schedule. Find one and stay there, rather than trying to escape and protect yourself, rather than staying dry, rather than the monotony of whatever it is you’re fighting to keep intact. Get lost in the downpour.
Went out looking for your crooked smile,
Til I ran out of places to go.
It’s feeling more like my heart is on trial,
You’re the only truth that I know.
Revisited wars we should have fought,
Words we should have spoken,
Like how you never gave us a fair chance…
Never gave me the choice to be broken.
I woulda let you take the best of me,
all the best there was for taking.
I woulda given you my morning haze,
all the love there was for making.
Heard you’ve been clean for a year now
Still there’s years we can’t undo
I walk the line for months at a time
Til I relapse back to you.
How I selfishly move on
And still want you for myself
How I hate it when you’re gone
While I sink in to someone else.
I woulda let you take the best of me
all the best there was for taking
I woulda given you my morning haze
all the love there was for making
