Lyrical

LOL, I see how it happens. I see how my parents felt when confronted with "my music" back in the day.

I really tried to stay progressive, and I won't say that I hate any music in particular. No it's not that strong, but as someone who has listened to, and enjoyed tons of different music over the last 30 years or so, I have to say, GIMME A BREAK!

Here's a sampler of something I saw on MTV Hits this morning...

How long do you think it took to pen these lyrics?

Artist : Cheyenne Kimball

Title : Hanging On


I've had a bad day
And nothing ever seems to go my way
I've got a heartache
Don't wanna think about it

And everytime I try to smile, I cry, so
I'll just hide my face
Get out of my way
Don't wanna talk about it


And I'll be fine
I just need some time

[Chorus]
I'm hanging on today
And nothing's gonna stop me, anyway
I'm holding on, I'm strong
I'm the only one who can make it change
I don't wanna cry
Gotta live my life
I'm gonna make it alright
I'm hanging on and nothing's gonna stop me, anyway

I went the wrong way
But I'm not lost, it's a good mistake
I saw the day break
I'm gonna shout about it

Oh, and everytime I turn around
I find that, I'm alone again
I've had a bad day
I'm gonna laugh about it

And I'll be fine
I'm gonna be alright

[Chorus]
I'm hanging on today (today, yeah)
And nothing's gonna stop me, anyway
I'm holding on, I'm strong (I'm strong)
I'm the only one who can make it change
I don't wanna cry
Gotta live my life
I'm gonna make it alright
I'm hanging on and nothing's gonna stop me,
Nothing's gonna stop me

When I feel lonely
I feel like I'm floating
Nothing is real
I'm above it all
I'm above it
I'm above it all

[Chorus]
I'm hanging on today
And nothing's gonna stop me, anyway
I'm holding on, I'm strong
I'm the only one who can make it change
I don't wanna cry
Gotta live my life
I'm gonna make it alright
I'm hanging on and nothing's gonna stop me, anyway

  2. I can relate to this, sadly. I hear myself saying (at rare times)..."How can they call this music??" That's usually with Rap only though!
    I pride myself on my love of almost all music.
    (Thanks for the enlightening lyrics to start my morning...)
