Music changes its meaning as one's outlook on life changes. When moods turn for the worst, obviously, darker music gets a lot more play time, the same being true for the opposite. I am in a cautiously optimistic mood right now, on the edge of bliss as well as agony. It all depends on which direction this strange wind blows in.

I have been listening to a lot of stuff I haven't turned on in a long time, I have been hearing it in a different light. Maybe it is because I'm older or maybe more jaded, who knows.

Faith lies in
The ways of sin
I chased the charmed
But I don't want them anymore

And in their eyes I was alive
A fool's disguise
Take me away from you

Shame my tongue
Fat with promise all along
But when I woke up from that sleep
I was happier than I'd ever been

When you decide
That your life is a prize
Renew and rivive
It's alright honey
It's alright, yeah

Happiness will make you wonder
Will I feel OK?
It scares the disenchanted
Far away

Yeah I want something new
But what am I supposed to do about you
Yeah I love you, it's true

Life's a bummer
When you're a hummer
Life's a drag

Ask yourself a question
Anyone but me
I ain't free

Ask yourself a question
Anyone but me
I ain't free

Do you feel
Love is real?
