favorite lyrics?

Today I was thinking about lyrics, and what my favorite ones are .. and why.

I’d like to share what I came up with you! And at the end, you can comment and tell me your favorite lyrics.

#1: Reflections, Strange Days at Blake Holsey High

While it’s kind of lame to have my favorite lyrics come from a TV show, I just can’t get enough of them. They come from an episode called Hemispheres. The basic story behind it is that Corrine gets sucked into a mirror which leads her to another universe. She meets the mirror-versions of all her friends and finds the confidence in herself that she didn’t have on the other side of the mirror. With this newfound confidence, Corrine can sing a song. The song she sings … I fell in love with. Here is my favorite part of the song:

Reflections of Reflections

My love reflects your joy

But your pain is like a mirror;

There’s a light it will destroy

I just think it’s really beautiful, true, and has a deeper meaning to anyone who listens to it. If any of you would like to see that episode, you can get the links to it from surfthechannel here (will open in new window/tab).

#2: Looking For Alaska, LianeAndTheMusic

This song is very beautiful. If you’re a nerdfighter who bought Hank Green’s CD [So Jokes], you’ve probably heard his cover.

The song is about a book that John Green, Hank’s brother, wrote called Looking For Alaska. I honestly don’t want to explain it now, but the song talks about the little things the main character and this amazing Alaska shared together, and talks about her untimely death.

My favorite lyrics in this song:

Thomas Edison’s last words were

“It’s very beautiful over there”

I don’t know where there is

But I believe it’s somewhere

I think that Tom is a great person. What a great way to end it all.

#3: One Good Love, Rascal Flatts

This, overall, is just an amazing song. I never get tired of belting it out in my kitchen, or jamming out to it in my bedroom like I am about to right now. / It’s so pretty. And true. And makes me feel so much better about things. My favorite lyrics:

One Good Love

You bless all my memories

You soften the fall of my tears

And in my arms you’re more than enough

You’re one good love

While they’re simple, they’re full of meaning for me, even though I don’t have a signifant other. That doesn’t take any happiness I feel from it though.

Besides Cold Beverages, that’s all I can think of for the moment. Comment about your favorites or write your own blog! 🙂

  1. i love the song Jolene by the Weepies 🙂 The song’s about this girl and how it always rained around her and the chorus is

    “Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
    Is it still raining everywhere you are?”

    And the end is

    “All of these clouds will disappear
    Like we were never here
    But I swear there was a time I thought that it would never stop
    And now I only think about you if it’s raining or it’s not”

    lyrics have such power.
