Uh.. Girl Power?

Hey Eden.. this blog is for you :)
So I've been listening to a lot of lyrics pretty closely recently and I found some songs that pretty much rock :) Maybe we can take some ideas from these greats.. they also reminded me of things we have late night convos about.. you gotta love it when you realize that other people sometimes feel the same way you do :D
Check em out..

You Belong With Me by Taylor Swift (this one especially made me think of you)
Pitter Pat by Erin Mccarley
Hide and Seek by Imogen Heap (one of the coolest songs I've ever heard.. I don't know what you'll think about it though)
Love, Save the Empty by Erin Mccarley (she's one of my newest favorites)
Rain on your Parade by Duffy (kind of a Nate song.. and also from Bride Wars which makes it even better)

So that's it for now.. they're all girls.. whatever that means :D
Call me :D

Let me know what ya think!!

p.s. in case anyone actually reads this blog I definitely think you should check those songs out and let me know what ya think! :)

The words that crept from my mind through the voices in my head...

I've been thinking a lot about patterns lately. Patterns in my life, and in my experiences with love.

In my limited experience with dating and love (which can definitely be two different things), I have come to a couple conclusions:

1) it's sometimes hard for you to give your heart away
2) but it's also really hard when you are willing, and the other person won't take it. Or they won't take it all.

This is what keeps running through my head:

I gave him all that he was willing to take
But he rejected my soul
He didn't want it all
He didn't want me at all

I love how lyrics can somehow always say things that regular everyday conversation can't.. and when you hear that perfect rhyme, or the words are strung together just right.. it alters your whole perspective. I love it. That's kind of how I felt when I heard the song "Belief" by Gavin DeGraw.
It's actually the chorus, but I think it's impeccably written:

Tonight, you arrested my mind.
When you came to my defense.
With a knife in the shape of your mouth,
in the form of your body, with the wrath of a God
Oh, you stood by me, Belief.

On the same note, it's the greatest feeling in the whole world, when you finally write that verse, chorus, or even line that sums up that feeling you've been trying to express. That recently happened for me..
Here's a part of a verse that I wrote that just came together like it was always meant to mean exactly how I felt:

Head bowed
Tears falling like raindrops to the ground
You scream -- there's no sound
The taste of him lingers on your tongue.
Each thought like breathing without lungs.

I'm still working on it, but it's been quite a while.. a little over a year actually, since words have come together like this for me.. I was pretty excited to see something finally come out slightly coherant :)
