Sunrise

When I listen to a song I like to really pay close attention to the lyrics and what the writer was trying to say. These are the lyrics to a song I recently discovered by a band that’s not very well known called Our Last Night. I love the hopelessness in it coupled with the mantra of

You can make it to the sunrise.

It’s a powerful combination. Even through our darkest days there is always a reason to keep fighting. Lists, I love lists. I make lists of things I need, things I want and more importantly I make lists of the people who make this life special. It might sound strange but having something in front of you to remind you of the love that surrounds you can really help to guide you through difficult times. Music was there for me through times when I had no one else to turn to. Now I turn to music when I cannot find the words to describe how I feel. No matter what I know it will have the right words to comfort me. So here are those lyrics…

Full of despair, inside a darkness
Self conscious and scared held prisoner of war
Running out of air, buried in a sadness
Want a way out of this paralyzing world
And the sounds of the cries when a family’s loved one dies
It echoes through a vacant room where a young soul still resides

When the night is cold and you feel like no one knows what it’s like to be buried in this hole
You can make it to the sunrise
You can make it to the sunrise

Searching for a way to escape the madness
A dire need for change as we fight for better days
The hurt and the pain cut deep like a razor blade
Holding in a cry for love
Abandoned and afraid

When the night is cold and you feel like no one knows what it’s like to be buried in this hole
You can make it to the sunrise
You can make it to the sunrise

I won’t go to my grave until a difference is made
I won’t go to my grave until a difference is made, until a difference is made

When the night is cold and you feel like no one knows what it’s like to be buried in this hole
You can make it to the sunrise
You can make it to the sunrise

I won’t go to my grave
Until a difference is made (X3)
