Lyrical Refuge

I fancy myself a bit of a poet. I'm kind of a romantic & have been known to write a mean love note/birthday card/thinking of you letter... you get me. I'm much better at writing my feelings than I am at speaking them. I find that the words that hit home the hardest are linked together simply. They are not complex. They do not make you wonder what the writer was thinking. They make you FEEL something.

So, here's what I'm feeling tonight...
Shinedown is Ahhhmazing. Click play below to hear them sing this song just for you :)
(Well, okay... clearly, it's not just for you- but it made you feel special, no?)
Other Shinedown lyrics that make me shiver:

Shed Some Light
"I know now, it's not who you are, it's who you know
& I see clearly now which way to go.
I remember the way I fell from above
& I recall the way I was."

"Someday when it's over and you never show your face,
I hope you'll remember how I tried to make you a place.
So now, I move on to keep my peace of mind.
In some way, I've failed you, but i just ran out of time."

7 love notes:

  1. Looooooove these!!!

    Loooooooove you!!!


  2. I really like those lyrics! Very cool!

  3. I didn't think I was good with the written word, but then I realized I'm also not good with the spoken word. LOL So I started writing to my Hubby when I was angry with him...sometimes I would give it to him, sometimes I wouldn't. But nearly always, the letter went from "I'm upset....to I'm okay" by the time it was complete. I always find that interesting.

    The lyrics are lovely. I hope you have a good Tuesday. I'm over from SITS roll call.

  4. Romantic lyrics, Lacey! Woooow :D someone's totally smitten!
