She Used To Be Mine

Everything I Never Told You

I love this song so much. See below. It’s so very relatable. I feel it to my core every time I listen to it. We all have times in our lives where we lose ourselves and feel a disconnect from the person we use to be.I’ve been there. It’s incredibly painful. Life can be so unpredictable and hard. Thankfully, it can be really beautiful too.

“She Used To Be Mine” isfrom the Broadway musical Waitress which was adapted from the 2007 film, that starred Keri Russell. Both the film and the musical are excellent. The Youtube is from the 2016 Tony Awards and it will bring tears to your eyes. It’s just that powerful of a performance.

Lyrics

That place and its patrons
Have taken more than I gave them

It’s not…

“The Shorthand of Emotions”

Everything I Never Told You


“The only truth is music.”-Jack Kerouac

This post was inspired by a music survey I came across. One of the question, what five songs means the most to you? Honestly, there are so many songs that hold special meaning for me, it’s hard to pick only a few.. However, I will try for the purpose of this blog post. I’d also love to know what songs you hold dear

“Falling Slowly” from Once

Moods that take me and erase me / And I’m painted black / You have suffered enough /And warred with yourself / It’s time that you won

Somewhere Only We Know-Keane

Oh, simple thing, where have you gone?
I’m getting old, and I need something to rely on / So tell me when you’re gonna let me / I’m getting tired, and I need somewhere to begin

Notes from the Other Side

Everything I Never Told You


Sometimes sorrow turns into
irreversible regret.
We choose to live an icebox
existence.
Wallowing in misfortune’s
frosty glass.
Consorting with memories
Squabbling with dreams.

The poet too has felt life
interrupted, days that vanish
upon awakening.
I’ve known suffering and
the pull of solitary confinement.

Now looking back from a happier
vista. I’m hear to tell you,
the pitch of pain may never
be unheard, but it does gets softer,
fading into a bittersweet refrain.

your case history, to be read
by nostalgia’s light on rain
soaked nights.

the today and what will be.
Take refuge in the heat of
places uncharted, linger in
the sweet realism of the hour.

Walk toward the future
with unshackled feet.
The misbegotten shadows
behind you now.
Let the smudge of the sun,
