I've been trying to write songs for about a year to get emotions out of my head, but my songwriting abilities always fail me half-way into any song i start. Which is why I'm thankful to Lifehouse right now for my current favorite song, Somewhere in Between. It pretty much sums up every song I've ever tried to write.
It's kind of funny to me that a song they released 10 years ago has such great relevance to something going on in my life right now.
"I'm somewhere in between, what is real and just a dream."
I'm waiting for that moment to "wake up." The moment that lets you know it was just a dream. The moment that lets you know you won't have to deal with it anymore. But at the same time I'm dealing with the fact that a typical dream doesn't continuously occur during consciousness day after day. Hence, I feel like a situation going on in my reality is more suitable for a dream. I don't necessarily know that this is what Jason Wade had in mind when he wrote the song, but it's the meaning that i find applicable.
I apologize for not expounding on the subject that connects me to this song, but I decided to stay away from blogging with too much personal detail. I will, however, leave you with a hint of what it's about by quoting another Lifehouse song.
"Maybe you could not believe it, that my love for you is blind. But I couldn't make you see it, that I loved you more than you'll ever know."
