Heartbreak in Melody

Why yes....I did steal the title from the song by The Wedding.
Borrowed! Borrowed, without permission!

I've been trying to think of  how to write this post for days. I tried and tried to think of a way to get it out in sarcasm and whit, but that side of me has turned murderous lately and I couldn't make a blog post out of it.

In the midst of trying to comfort me, my friend told me that heartbreak makes us better writers.
But I'm not feeling very prolific right now. I'm actually feeling kind of numb. None of my words are coming anymore. In fact, over the last few days, I've found that music has been my voice. I've been letting my ipod play on shuffle, and it seems like almost every song has a line in it that was made for me right now. The rest of the song can have nothing to do with anything I'm feeling, but there is a line, a word. Just a little piece that makes me think "Yes. That's what I mean."

Isn't it funny how the singers and songwriters we like to listen to can say things that are so us? How do they know how to so perfectly describe what we are feeling?

Hearts are stronger after broken- Slumber, NeedtoBreathe


'Cause I can't walk on water
And if I chase you, I might drown
And I'm already up to my neck
You can read all about it
About boy meets a girl and then screws the whole thing up
Just like always - Daring Daylight Escape, Caedmon's Call

No I
Couldn't be a Savior who
Leaves an empty grave for you
I couldn't be the heart that you'll seek

Oh and
Even though I'd die for you
I couldn't be a God for You
I couldn't be the air that you breathe-Hero, Connersvine



I bet you got pushed around
Somebody made you cold
But the cycle ends right now
'Cause you can't lead me down that road
And you don't know, what you don't know...

Running scared, I was there, I remember it all too well.
Back before you lost the one real thing you've ever known

You're the kind of reckless
That should send me runnin'

My mind forgets to remind me
You're a bad idea

I guess you didn't care, and I guess I liked that
And when I fell hard you took a step back
Without me, without me, without me
And he's long gone when he's next to me
And I realize the joke is on me


  1. Oh Maddie, I have no clue what happened to make you so sad. But remember, It's a beautiful day. :) That one's by Jamie Grace.

    1. Thanks :) I've never heard that song, but it does fit today. I'm sorry I dumped all this on you guys without explaining, but I just can't go that far.

  2. Aww Maddie, *Hugs* I am so sorry that your hurting. I wish I had something encouraging to say :) I will be praying for you.

  3. I hope that you start to cheer up soon Maddie :) I have been feeling a bit murderous lately as well. Sometimes life really drags us down, but remember that there is always people here for you :))

  4. Aw, Maddie! I'll be praying for you...I'm really sorry that you have to go through whatever this circumstance is that you are going through! <3
    There's so many nights that I've listened to "White Horse" and just cried my eyes out. <3

    1. Thanks Lauren! I appreciate it a lot. Things are starting to get better now.
