Lyrics Change Everything..

So I was listening to what I thought was a favorite song by Imogen Heap called Loose Ends today. I got a bit of a wild hair and figured download it and put it on my ipod. So I went and did that. The Loose Ends I downloaded and the one that is on my playlist are two TOTALLY diffrent songs. Then that made me extrememly curious. So finally after reasearching the lyrics I found out it is a song from Silent Hill. That video game. Maybe Imogen Heap sings it is why I foudn it on projectplaylist.com under her name. But looking up the lyrics made me really focus on them. My main love of the song is the flow and the slow, relaxing instrumental part. But the lyrics made me think. What if you really felt that way about your mother? It really fits for those children who's mothers are not there. How the might feel if they could put their words this way. it really shows the hurt, the deep break inside. That made me sad then the other parts just made me think on the game. So watching the videos on it from youtube.com it gave me another perspective on the song. This is someone who is not hurt by their mother. They actually hate her, she made up this demon world based on that hate. They made a horror movie out of it. So I sat and watched 30 mins of footage of bloody, ugly, violent shots of this video game that I never knew existed. All because I loved this song and wanted to download it to my ipod... So read the lyrics for yourself. Before you do...go to my playlist on the right hand side. Click on Loose Ends. So you can hear it as well.



You lie silent there before me
your tears they mean nothing to me the wind howling at the window
the love you never gave
I give to you Really don't deserve it but now there's nothing you can do
so sleep in your only memory of me my dearest mother
Here's a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
it was always you that I despised
I don't feel enough for you to cry oh well
here's a lullaby to close your eyes
good-bye
goodbye
goodbye

So insignificant sleeping dormant deep inside of me
are you hiding away lost
under the sewers maybe flying high in the clouds perhaps you're happy without me
so many seeds have been sown in the field and who could sprout up so blessedly if I had died
I would have never felt sad at all you will not hear me say I'm sorry
where is the light
wonder if it's weeping somewhere

Here's a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
it was always you that I despised
I don't feel enough for you to cry oh well
here's a lullaby to close your eyes
good-bye
Here's a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye

it was always you that I despised I don't feel enough for you to cry oh well
here's a lullaby to close your eyes
good-bye
good-bye
good-bye
good-bye
good-bye

Here's a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
it was always you that I despised I don't feel enough for you to cry oh well
here's a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
Here's a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
it was always you that I despised I don't feel enough for you to cry oh well
here's a lullaby to close your eyes
good-bye
good-bye
good-bye
good-bye
good-bye




Now is that song not peaceful? Without the lyrics...The piano, the electornic touches, the drums...I just love it. But now it has put this dirty spin, dark,hateful on this song that was once beloved. So I will hope this passes or I will have to listen to that song when I am depressed or something. Here is a happy picture before I go and some nice thoughts from people about their moms and about the joys of motherhood. Now I am going to go call my mother since she is 10hrs behind me and tell her I love her.

God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers." -- Jewish proverb

The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness." -- Honore' de Balzac


"All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother." -- Abraham Lincoln
