Follow along as I listen to music from genres such as rock, punk, emo, pop and everything in between...

A beautiful, beautiful song from Switchfoot. This song is written from God's point of view. And that's what makes the lyrics at the end so poignant to me.

If you could let the pain of the past go Of your soul None of this is in your control

If you could only let your guard down If you could learn to trust me somehow I swear, that I won't let you go If you could only let go your doubts If you could just believe in me now I swear, that I won't let you go

There ain't no darkness strong enough that could tear you out from my heart There ain't no strength that's strong enough that could tear this love apart Never gonna let you go Never gonna let you go β™ͺ β™« β™ͺ

#Switchfoot

A pretty good acoustic rendition of the original.

Love the title, love the song. This song is on the heavier side of rock, with lots of screaming at the start. However, this song for me, is all about the lyrics at the end. And I've listed them below. It's almost like having to go through hell, to get to the heavenly part of the song. This is one song you want to listen all the way to the end.

I reserve my right to feel uncomfortable, reserve my right to be afraid. I make mistakes and I am humbled, every step of the way. I want to be a better person. I wanna know the master plan. Cast your stones, cast your judgement, you don't make me who I am.

God help those who help themselves, and forget about everyone else. You lost your nerve, you missed the point. God help those with open hands, may they never feel burden again. Yeah I'll stand up for those who can't. I'll close the distance. β™ͺ β™« β™ͺ

Is it fair to say, that this was one of the best songs to come out in the 90s? This is still a very good song.

I see forever when I look in your eyes You're all I've ever wanted I always want you to be mine Let's make a promise to the end of time We'll always be together And our love will never die

So here we are face to face and heart to heart I want you to know we will never be apart Now I believe that wishes can come true 'Cause when I see my whole world I see only you

When I look into your eyes I can see how much I love you And it makes me realize When I look into your eyes I see all my dreams come true When I look into your eyes β™ͺ β™« β™ͺ

#Firehouse #ThrowbackThursday

Pretty good new find! Has hints of Evanescence in this track.

How come we cannot erase all the pain Why aren't we strong enough to overcome Undone, it's driving me mad and insane Is there some other place where we belong? β™ͺ β™« β™ͺ

A beautiful k-pop track from The Rose. The lyrics are mostly in Korean, but this bit from the bridge is in English.

She's in the rain You wanna hurt yourself I'll stay with you You wanna make yourself go through the pain It's better to be held than holding on No whoa β™ͺ β™« β™ͺ

#TheRose

This track goes for over 9 minutes, which is almost unheard of nowadays. Still a good song though.

#BonJovi

The social commentary in this song is deep and was unexpected. The songwriter is reflecting on how, more often than not, we unconsciously just close our eyes to the marginalized people in our society. β€œIs this the best that we can do?”, he asks. Hopefully, we can do better than this.

And we sit in our high-rise apartments and complain about things that don't matter And we race through this life just to see who can die with as much as we can gather And a few blocks away a teenage mother plays Russian Roulette with her daughter Is this the best that we can do, is this the best that we can do

Oh my God, this is insane How'd it get like this, or has it always been this way Oh my God, I'm so ashamed When we close our eyes to make this go away

#SixxAM

Came out 20 years ago β€” the band is even older than that. Still a pretty good song.

#Aerosmith

Another beautiful song from Go Radio with some wonderful lyrics.

I take a step into the rain To make sure I can feel again The way it hits my skin feels like a tear And I would love to be the song you sing To everyone for everything Just tell me when this melody gets clear ... So let's get carried away Not lose ourselves in the fight Let's show the world we were right That we can make it through And I may be leading the way But you will always be my light And I will always love you β™ͺ β™« β™ͺ
