Archive for the ‘Music’ Category

I get bored. Let’s be fair, I am on the train a lot and there are only so many newspapers you can read in a day… So I find ways to pass the time like taking photos of random strangers picking their noses (To name and shame of course) or listening to music.

I then got this idea to write a poem… but not actually ‘write’ the poem. I decided to take a line from every song that I listened to… My music was on SHUFFLE and so I let the iPhone do the work, I wrote a line out from every song that played, as it played. The end result? This! Have a read and try to guess the songs (or sing them) as you make your way through the list… I will also post the artists / songs below so you can see if you were right and if you like my music choices!

The choice is yours, don’t be late

Try to find out what makes you tick as I lie down

Let the leaves fall off in the summer

When you fall asleep

I wasted it all just to watch you go

Somewhere between the sacred silence and sleep

I’m walking down the line. That divides me somewhere in my mind.

Tell me I’m the perfect queen

Looking at my own reflection when suddenly it changes

My eyes don’t need to see that ugly thing, I know it’s me you fear

I don’t want to be selfish anymore

I hate to leave you bare, if you need me I’ll be there

Keep me safe inside your arms like towers

And everything I can’t remember

I had no choice but to hear you

Amp Rock TV – The Words videos

A specific series of videos called The Words were released in 2012, one of which was the Evanescence song ‘Lost in Paradise’ spoken by Amy Lee. I’m the biggest Evanescence and Amy Lee fan so I thought I’d share this with you.

Evanescence The Words

This website is an awesome find!!! Some stunning videos by amazing artists, take the time to have a look!

I’ve been believing in something so distant
As if I was human
And I’ve been denying this feeling of hopelessness
In me, in me

All the promises I made
Just to let you down
You believed in me, but I’m broken

I have nothing left
And all I feel is this cruel wanting

We’ve been falling for all this time
And now I’m lost in paradise

As much as I’d like the past not to exist
It still does
And as much as I’d like to feel like I belong here
I’m just as scared as you

I have nothing left
And all I feel is this cruel wanting

We’ve been falling for all this time
And now I’m lost in paradise

Run away, run away
One day we won’t feel this pain anymore

Take it all away
Shadows of you
Cause they won’t let me go

Until I have nothing left
And all I feel is this cruel wanting

We’ve been falling for all this time
And now I’m lost in paradise

Alone, and lost in paradise
