I was not able to go through a lot of my writing assignments since I have been refueling my mind with ideas and experiences. Well, a prompt and the keyboard got me on my nerves today, and I am going to do this one thing I have always disliked: sharing something very precious to me with people.
It’s not that I’m selfish, I think the reason is that when I find something really valuable and important, I just want to keep it to myself and to the fellows I really open up to (a limited number). I have read from The Picture of Dorian Gray and The Fault In Our Stars the same thing – not wanting to reveal to the eyes of the public something they revere and love, afraid that they won’t see its worth as much as you do. But, I’m doing it now.
Without music, life would be a mistake.
We all have a song we love to dance to; a song that you just can’t stop yourself from singing; a song that makes you scurry to your guitar to play; a song that reverberates to your core. Well, for that last part, it’s this song. It’s called Summertime by the band My Chemical Romance. Okay, hold your thoughts and your tongues. This is not the typical rock song, and most definitely not the classiest one, and it isn’t the butterflies-in-your-stomach love song either, that’s why I’m going to share with you how my ears and my soul find perfection in its sound.
The first verse: all I can think of is someone who’s just tired of his life. Who had a little too much trouble for a lifetime and just wants a bit of rest, may it be found in another soul who’s just as battered as he is. A whole that is to be made from two tattered pieces of puzzle. And the second verse was what truly got me hooked ever since the first time I have listened to it. The idea that someone out there, that significant someone, can and will turn out the noise, finally. Moreover, the song just speaks of selfless love: one does not demand, one that saves.
This may not seem much, but if I am to love a song more than I do Yellow by Coldplay.. No matter what season it is, it’s always going to be Summertime.
