Handfuls of Letters

I love writing. I love the way words can be put together to create sentences and paragraphs, and how you can tell one person’s sentences from another. We all write differently, express ourselves differently, etc. It’s the same process, just with a different outcome.

I don’t write music, but I listen to people who do. I know people who do. And it hurts my brain trying to think of how they do it. Just coming up with music, putting words to it…HOW.

But just because I don’t know how to create it doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate it all the same. I do love the tune and beats but the lyrics are always what gets me every single time.

I can love a whole song, but there’s always one string of words that just hits me and kinda leaves me sitting there in awe.

So I thought I would share some of my favorites with you…


You said that I was “just alright”
I said you’re “just okay”
What I really meant was
“Please don’t ever go away”

– Like You Used To by Tessa Violet


And you,
You want forgiveness,
But I,
I just can’t do it yet

– Forgiveness by Paramore


But the tigers come at night,
With their voices soft as thunder,
As they tear your hope apart,
As they turn your dreams to shame

– I Dreamed a Dream from (Les Miserables 2012)


We could fall for the streets of Paris,
But the Eiffel’s a joke,
And the punchline is me

– Tourist: A Love Song From Paris by Jon Cozart


No light, No light in your bright blue eyes,
I never knew daylight could be so violent

– No Light No Light by Florence + The Machine


Could I stop you on the street?
And embrace you as a friend,
With part of me still aching,
To show you your mistakes again

– Hope You’re Listening by Bry


The people danced to the sound of your heart,
And the world sang along to it falling apart

– The Good Side by Troye Sivan


You waited smiling, for this?

– Burned Out by Dodie


I begin to envy the headlights driving south,
I wanna crack the door,
So I can just fall out

– A Car, A Torch, A Death by Twenty One Pilots


Tonight I’ll feel assured,
In the company of friends,
And I’ll proclaim,
“Who needs love anyways?”

– Pieces by Bry


You say “We gotta look on the bright side”,
I say “Well maybe if you wanna go blind”,
You say my eyes are getting too dark now,
But boy, you ain’t ever seen my mind

– Rose-Colored Boy by Paramore


We’re perfectly intertwined,
And if it’s quite alright,
You could be my way of life

– Into the Wild by Lewis Watson


It was far too easy to just come up with these 12, and I could go on and on and on … maybe another day 🙃

Happy Friday!
