Music & Lyrics

They say words speak to you when you least expect it. When emotions are running high, or the moments when are you’re so low and you are trying to do everything to dig yourself out of the ground, music really speaks to me. It like theres someone deep within the ruins of my mind who is able to express all my feeling and emotions and put pen to paper when I cant.

Recently I have discovered myself listening and paying closer attention to the words of the artists, the unwritten & hidden messages they are trying to portray to the world. I came across this song the other day while I was at the gym and it was playing on the tv. I’m not sure what clicked but something in my mind told me to look close and listen to what was playing through my headphones. The beat to the song was not what I was expecting for the lyrics that were written which was why it took me so much by surprise. So as I ran, sweat pouring down my face and my muscles screaming out in pain at me, I listened carefully to what they were saying and it all made sense. I felt like there was someone out there who knew how I was feeling and was able to put it perfectly into words. Ever since that moment I now seem to listen to everything differently, like there’s more of an understanding between and me the music now. Not that I didnt pay attention before, now it just really seems to hit home and its somewhat comforting to know that there are people out there experiencing the same pain and hidden struggles you are.

This is the song that seemed to speak to me that day.

‘Heavy’
Linkin Park feat. Kiiara

I don’t like my mind right now
Stacking up problems that are so unnecessary
Wish that I could slow things down
I wanna let go but there’s comfort in the panic
And I drive myself crazy
Thinking everything’s about me
Yeah I drive myself crazy
‘Cause I can’t escape the gravity

I’m holding on
Why is everything so heavy?
Holding on
To so much more than I can carry
I keep dragging around what’s bringing me down
If I just let go, I’d be set free
Holding on
Why is everything so heavy?

You say that I’m paranoid
But I’m pretty sure the world is out to get me
It’s not like I make the choice
To let my mind stay so fucking messy
I know I’m not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning round me just the same
I know I’m not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning round me just the same

I’m holding on
Why is everything so heavy?
Holding on
To so much more than I can carry
I keep dragging around what’s bringing me down
If I just let go, I’d be set free
Holding on
Why is everything so heavy?

I know I’m not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning round me just the same
I know I’m not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning round me just the same
And I drive myself crazy
Thinking everything’s about me

I’m holding on
Why is everything so heavy?
Holding on
To so much more than I can carry
I keep dragging around what’s bringing me down
If I just let go, I’d be set free
Holding on
Why is everything so heavy?

Why is everything so heavy?
Why is everything so heavy?
