10. Rise Against – The Good Left Undone (144)

In fields where nothing grew but weeds,
I found a flower at my feet,
Bending there in my direction,
I wrapped a hand around its stem,
I pulled until the roots gave in,
Finding there what I’d been missing,

But I know…
So I tell myself, I tell myself it’s wrong.
There’s a point we pass from which we can’t return.
I felt the cold rain of the coming storm.

All because of you,
I haven’t slept in so long.
When I do I dream of drowning in the ocean,
Longing for the shore where I can lay my head down,
I’ll follow your voice,
All you have to do is shout it out

i tried not to quote so much of the lyrics but i couldn’t help myself.
it tells the story of someone who knows that what they’re doing it wrong, but selfishly they decide not to. until they can’t any longer and just let them go.
but that wasn’t what i connected with.
all i heard was “all because of you”
i was young in love
i had finally escaped
“all because of you,
I believe in angels.
Not the kind with wings,
No, not the kind with halos,
The kind that bring you home,
When home becomes a strange place.
I’ll follow your voice,
All you have to do is shout it out”

that is the song.
i had found that feeling of home, i had found someone that i wanted to share everything with, who i would follow anywhere…
and i still would.
