Life In Lyrics: Sympathy

on September 18, 2012

There are some days were my mere words can’t explain the deluge of emotions I’m going through. Today’s one of those days. I feel like I’m on shaky ground. I really don’t know what tomorrow will bring. I’m going to have to move soon but I don’t know where I’m moving. I worked over the weekend but I was shorted in what they paid me. I have no recourse to get that money because it was a cash job and it’s not like I punched a time clock. It’s only $20 but still money I desperately need. I’m trying to trust that everything will turn out okay. But I’m living in fear.

I usually travel with Winston (my iPod). I had Winston on shuffle and “Sympathy” by the Goo Goo Dolls came on. I haven’t heard the song in a long time. I was waiting for the bus to come so I really had a chance to listen to the lyrics. They seem to sum up everything that I’m currently going through. So enjoy the gorgeous John Rzeznik riding around in Vegas.

Stranger than your sympathy
And this is my apology
I killed myself from the inside out
And all my fears have pushed you out

And I wished for things that I don’t need
(All I wanted)
And what I chased won’t set me free
(All I wanted)
And I get scared but I’m not crawlin’ on my knees

Oh, yeah
Everything’s all wrong, yeah
Everything’s all wrong, yeah
Where the hell did I think I was?

And stranger than your sympathy
Take these things, so I don’t feel
I’m killing myself from the inside out
And now my head’s been filled with doubt

We’re taught to lead the life you choose
(All I wanted)
You know your love’s run out on you
(All I wanted)
And you can’t see when all your dreams aren’t coming true

Oh, yeah
It’s easy to forget, yeah
When you choke on the regrets, yeah
Who the hell did I think I was?

And stranger than your sympathy
And all these thoughts you stole from me
And I’m not sure where I belong
And no where’s home and no more wrong

And I was in love with things I tried to make you believe I was
And I wouldn’t be the one to kneel before the dreams I wanted
And all the dark and all the lies were all the empty things disguised as me

Mmm, yeah
Stranger than your sympathy
Stranger than your sympathy
Mmm hmmm mmm
