Song lyrics that have stuck by me..

You know sometimes you like a song solely for a few lines that hits home or close to home?

Yea I have multiple songs that I love just for merely few lines. I am a sucker for a song with good lyrics and I appreciate songwriters that know exactly how to put words together. At times it can be mind-blowing.

Anyways, here is a list of song lyrics that I absolutely love. It may or may not relate to my life in any way, shape, or form. So don't look too deep into it hahaha and try to understand what it means instead. I suggest you listen to the whole song if you want.

#1: Cowboy like me, Taylor Swift. Super short line, but true as ever. As sweet as it sounds, "forever" is a lie. 

'Forever is the sweetest con'

#2: Feels right, Alina Baraz. I discovered her last year. Though I've listen to her whole album last year, I still go back to it all the time. And interestingly one song always stands out than the rest at a particular time, then it changes the next month. 

'You feel like heaven to me and everything in between'

#3: Marjorie, Taylor Swift. A long one and from different verses. This song reminds me of my own late grandmother that I miss, always. Only after that person has gone forever you realised you should’ve done more and appreciate them more.

'I should've asked you questions
I should've asked you how to be
Asked you to write it down for me
Should've kept every grocery store receipt'Cause every scrap of you would be taken from me
Watched as you signed your name Marjorie
All your closets of backlogged dreams
And how you left them all to me'

'Never be so kind, you forget to be clever
Never be so clever, you forget to be kind'

'Never be so polite, you forget your power
Never wield such power, you forget to be polite'

#4: idontwannabeyouanymore, Billie Eilish. I don't think this needs any explanation, the lyrics speaks for itself.

'If "I love you" was a promise, would you break it, if you're honest?'

#5: Alive, Khalid. This whole song... You just have to listen to it. But trigger warning, it's about suicide, giving up on living. Fun fact, his concert was supposed to be the first international concert I go to last year in April but Covid-19 hits, I didn't get to see him live.

Can you show me more to life
Mainly I've been living out of spite
Grim Reaper
Just give me one more night
I need another chance to say goodbye
I shouldn't have to die to feel alive'

#6: Take yourself home, Troye Sivan. I like a few lines from this song.

'Talk to me
There's nothing that can't be fixed with some honesty'

'Who you really tryna be when they you see your face?
Is it worth it trying to win in a losing game?'

If you keep on comparing yourself to others, you’re always going to want more and never really be satisfied. So you’re never going to win.

#7: Until I met you, Alina Baraz.

'Let me be your peace of mind at night when we're alone
Just know you can talk to me when you're feeling vulnerable
Can you promise
Through every sun and moon that you'll be honest?'

This lyric in particular speaks to me. I like to share my stories, and people tell me I'm a listener. I like the idea that people think they are safe to tell me anything, to be vulnerable with me. It's truly an honour. Because if I'm comfortable enough with you, you will see the most vulnerable side of me too. 

And this goes beyond the general view of it. Even for a partner, I hope that person knows that showing vulnerability doesn't make you weak, it makes you human. I also have said this before and I'm gonna say it again, I value honesty more than anything. Even if it's hard to swallow.

That will be it for now. I have loads more but I'll probably make another list next time.
