Song for you – by Alexi Murdoch

20131108-214120.jpg

It’s only when I really listened carefully to this that I found out how beautiful and raw the lyrics were to this song. I don’t think any song can ever describe what it feels like so well. But I don’t think this is the best song to listen to when you’re already crying your guts out because this will make it so…so much worse._.

When I listened to it I had that image in my head of a girl looking up to the sky like that and so I drew it but that was all I got.

So today
I wrote a song for you
Because today can get so long
And I know it’s hard to make it through
When you say there’s something wrong
So I’m trying to put it right
Because I want to love you with my heart
All this trying has made me tight
And I don’t know even where to start
Maybe that’s a start

Because you know it’s a simple game
That you play filling up your head with rain

And you know you are hiding from your pain in the way
You say your name

And I see you hiding your face in your hands
Flying so you won’t land
You think no one understands
No one understands

So you hunch your shoulders
and you shake your head
And your throat is aching but you swear
No one hurts you, nothing could be sad
Anyway you’re not here enough to care
And so you’re tired you don’t sleep at night
As your heart is trying to mend
You keep it quiet but you think you might
Disappear before the end

And it’s strange that you cannot find any strength to even try
To find a voice to speak your mind
When you do
All you wanna do is cry

Well maybe you should cry

And I see you hiding your face in your hands
Talking about far away lands
You think no one understands
Listen to my hands

And all of this life moves around you
For all that you claim
You’re standing still
You are moving too
I will move you

Also, it’s a REALLY REALLY REALLY bad idea to keep your pain inside you. Really bad. It gets amplified, as if a single bullet shot wasn’t enough, it ricochets off the walls of your hearts and keeps on going madly like no ones business.

Even small little things can cause you so much pain if you don’t deal with it and just bury it inside the graveyard of your heart all alone.

Like I said it’s a really bad idea to keep it in…
Yet people do it all the time.
