A song just for me! - A song-inspired story

That 1 Song.gif

Okay, sometimes you feel that a song is just for you,right? If not you need to listen to other artist because you clearly do not expose yourself to the right songs.

Now sometimes it takes a listen, or two or three.....
But not with this guy...
he had me at the opening sentence:

I sure do miss them drugs,
And not giving the slightest fuck,

But just like in the song it would have probably killed me. Although as some of you know I got away pretty well from that life.

And I miss the independence
Of being high as fuck and friendless,

Not sure if I ever truly was friendless, but the independence of not being responsible for anything but me. Allowed me to be as irresponsible as possible and damn I do miss that, just as I miss:

.......leaving every morning
Without words and without warning,

So many nights spent with someone I just met, someone that looked so hot in the dim light of the moon. Someone I did not care to see in the screaming light of the morning sun.

Light 'em up, get up, get out, get breakfast somewhere. That has not happened for so long....

But if I would still be living like that:

That would surely kill me.

And I went to the edge and did my little dance there. I danced with the devil, I danced with angels. I gave in to the fact that I am not invincible.

That there is more to life than loneliness and independence..... I do miss those days but you can't stay awake forever.
At a certain point, you wake up and smell the coffee. That is when you make the choice to wake up....or stay awake forever.

This is that song, that´s me:

Frank Turner // Untainted Love // Official Audio

I woke up and went for a little life like Frank.
We woke up grown-ups.
Maybe a little life is all that we need......

Very interesting. I don't know as though I have ever heard of this guy before. The name kind of sound familiar though and I can't quite figure out why. Maybe it is just that common.

I discovered him last week, but he has a very own sound, and still very accessible.

I've not been exposed to this guy before actually but I also have songs meant for me😅

Nice rhythm from Frank

Sometimes it just has to happen. Otherwise, you run the risk of not waking up at all. 💛

Indeed not waking up;

That would surely kill me.

Having lost friends to drugs because they literally drifted away from my life or became shadows of their former selves, or because they OD'ed ... I find it a struggle to believe that anyone could be sober now, appreciate that they have changed their lives for the better, but still miss the way things were. I can only say thank goodness that you woke up an adult. At least you may have the sense and discipline to overcome any temptation to return to those days of your past. I wish you all the very best, fellow dreemer.

I dropped in from #dreemport this evening.

Awesome comment and I fully get you. I have seen the same, and I have seen the fun turn into shadows for some. Others grew up without too much struggle. I grew up and had to leave some behind, but sometimes I just miss those crazy days....knowing I never can go back.
