Evans Blue – Alone Not Lonely

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , at 2:01 pm by LynxLee

Days of watching Evanescence haunts me yet again. I’ve never felt this energy, and I like it. I can’t stay back down. Even if I have to do this alone, I will.

tumblr_nl9idgYHrQ1rd67i2o1_500I’m alone, I’m not lonely
I can’t let you in
I feel like choking then holding
You’re breaking the skin
This isn’t hope that I’m holding
No love you can give
Not lonely, I’ve chosen
To bleed here again and again

You’re a book, you’re a photograph
You’re a plaque on the wall or a knickknack haiku
You’re the voice of a guilty man who doesn’t call your name
Until he needs to be lied to
Call me vicious, cast your stones on me
You’re the death of a million men
You’re the face we defend with a patient virtue
You’re the judge of when a life should end
Or when a war begins, you’re such a perfect statue

You wear your necklace like you wear your noose
You fear your comfort anyway you choose
But I’m not like you!

I’m alone, I’m not lonely
I can’t let you in
I feel like choking then holding
You’re breaking the skin
This isn’t hope that I’m holding
No love you can give
Not lonely, I’ve chosen
To bleed here again and again

Now I wake up to the sound of the mourning
I feel infection
Eyes shut to the absent heartbeat
Too late to question
Will you surrender or will you lose
I love the way you blur your vision, I feel your passion
Never give up until the path you’re living finds your intention

Call me evil cause I’m not like you
You fear your comfort anyway you choose
But I’m not like you!

I’m alone, I’m not lonely
I can’t let you in
I feel like choking then holding
You’re breaking the skin
This isn’t hope that I’m holding
No love you can give
Not lonely, I’ve chosen
To bleed here again and again

One man buys the life
That someone controls the night
He died…

I’m alone, I’m not lonely
I can’t let you in
I feel like choking then holding
You’re breaking the skin
This isn’t hope that I’m holding
No love you can give
Not lonely, I’ve chosen
To bleed here again and again

Evans Blue – Beyond The Stars

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged at 6:00 am by LynxLee

I can’t stand silence, that’s probably why I bury my ears in music. I don’t like being in an environment where everyone just doesn’t say anything – especially when they say what they don’t mean.

At some point in my life, I feel like migrating over to Canada – where this band is from. I think it would be cool (winter, get it?) being there just listening to these guys perform. It’ll be somewhat a dream come true to visit or experience being there.

Keep playing those music in your head – perhaps one day your dreams would come true. Indeed that would be quite something. Especially if you really really want it to happen.

Probably feeling Beyond The Stars.

maxresdefaultKeep your silence or
Reach for life beyond the stars
Save your mercy
For someone who needs it more
I’m the guilty
All the feelings come crashing down on me
I’m taking you with me

Help me
I’m losing on my own
Locked up in a cage
And not alone
Show me a way to keep
The hate from taking
Control I’m breaking
I’m bleeding on the inside
The fear before the fall
I’m 6 feet above the next time
I lose it all!

Help me
Surrender my control
Searching for the death of my own soul
I bleed, but far beneath
My cover keeps the red from leaking
I’m bleeding on the inside
The fear before the fall
I’m 6 feet above the next time
I lose it all!

Keep your silence or
Reach for life beyond the stars
Save your mercy
For someone who needs it more
I’m the guilty
All the feelings come crashing down on me
I’m taking you with me

Help me
I’m losing on my own
Locked up in a cage
And not alone
Show me a way to keep
The hate from taking
Control I’m breaking
I’m bleeding on the inside
The fear before the fall
I’m 6 feet above the next time
I lose it all!

Taking you with me
I’m the guilty
All the feelings
Come crashing down on me
I’m taking you with me
I’m taking you with me

Evans Blue – The Pursuit

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged at 3:00 pm by LynxLee

619w-S+q5RLCos they’re still in you too low
All the voices you don’t know
And they’re still in you too low
All the choices that you chose
Leave you nothing left to hold
When you’re nothing it’s a good time to remind you of one thing
The pursuit begins when this portrayal of life, ends

You lived a time of lies until you told me everything
I hope we make amends, but you don’t
Life taught you how to fly and then you flew away from me
You left me haunted, star the ending image of the one

Cos they’re still in you too low
All the voices you don’t know
And they’re still in you too low
All the choices that you chose

You harbored all the wasted sighs to define the quiet drone
I’ll let you start again, but you won’t
I saw you pray for change and then you walked all over me
You wanted what you could not have and now you are alone

Cos they’re still in you too low
All the voices you don’t know
And they’re still in you too low
All the choices that you chose
Make the voices tell me who you are, and who I am to be

Are you alone wherever you are tonight?
I’m alone when you’re right here
But I’m still in you somehow
I never left at all
Now I’m still in you too low
So my voice is all you know

Cos they’re still in you too low
All the voices you don’t know
And they’re still in you too low
All the choices that you chose
Leave you nothing left to hold
When you’re nothing it’s a good time to remind you of one thing
The pursuit begins when this portrayal of life, ends

Evans Blue – Who We Are

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 11:56 pm by LynxLee

This song has been making me feel better when times are down.

I lie awake to the sound of it all
Will it ever reach me
As I wander around this hole
Will the burden break me

So I try, break habit, and fall
The walls consume me
Rely on having it all
And it all goes through me

Have the words been made to take the pain
When the truth cannot be safe
Can the truth remain when everything, everything’s okay
And now the world surrounds us
Will we ever live

Now here we are, going down, down, down
Will we turn this around or fall apart
Now here we are, looking down, down, down
We can turn this around; it’s who we are


I lie awake to the sound of it all
Will it ever reach me
As I wander around this hole
Will the burden break me

Have the words been made to take the pain
When the truth cannot be safe
Can the truth remain when everything, everything’s okay
And now the world surrounds us
Will we ever live

Now here we are, going down, down, down
Will we turn this around or fall apart
Now here we are, looking down, down, down
We can turn this around; it’s who we are

So I try, break habit, and fall
The walls consume me
Rely on having it all
And it all goes through me

Have the words been made to take the pain
When truth cannot be safe
Can the truth remain when everything, everything’s okay
And now the world surrounds us
Will we ever live

Now here we are, going down, down, down
Will we turn this around or fall apart
Now here we are, looking down, down, down
We can turn this around; it’s who we are

And all you are
You cannot fall
You move the world
You have it all
You cannot fall
You cannot fall

And now here we are, going down, down, down
We can turn this around; it’s who we are

Now here we are, going down, down, down
Will we turn this around or fall apart
Now here we are, looking down, down, down
We can turn this around; it’s who we are

Evans Blue – A Step Back

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 4:50 am by LynxLee

I just had a talk with someone whom I consider to be very important to me in my life starting my last birthday. I was wrong. Apparently I was not up to her standards. I’ll make sure I don’t waste my birthday this year onwards.

No censorship here, every word has a meaning. I’m sure you meant every word you say too.

God Bless.

You don’t feel the absence…you won’t see the pain

I’m taking a step back from inside
Forsaking the life that I once had
I’ve tried, I hate that you already do
I’m making a run from the dark side
Replacing night with the sunlight
I’ve tried, I hate that you already do

Fuck you
For lying
For pointing and then hiding
You must be right, it must be true
Fuck me
For dreaming
For trying to find my meaning
What was I thinking, it’s all for you

Embrace the atmosphere
Save face but have your fill
Never mind the rules in here and don’t believe ’em
I know you
You’ll fall through
Replace your life with fear
Withdrawing your love here
I know you
You want to

You don’t feel the absence…you won’t see the pain

I’m taking a step back from inside
Forsaking the life that I once had
I’ve tried, I hate that you already do
I’m making a run from the dark side
Replacing night with the sunlight
I’ve tried, I hate that you already do

Separate your faults in life
And get used to blood-shot eyes
Never mind the sleepless nights, just follow your own fight
I know you
You’ll fall through
Replace your fear with life
Withdrawing this spotlight
I know you
You’ll want too

You don’t feel the absence…you won’t see the pain

I’m taking a step back from inside
Forsaking the life that I once had
I’ve tried, I hate that you already do
I’m making a run from the dark side
Replacing night with the sunlight
I’ve tried, I hate that you already do

Fuck you
For lying
For pointing and then hiding
You must be right, it must be true
Fuck me
For dreaming
For trying to find my meaning
What was I thinking, it’s all for you

I’m taking a step back from inside
Forsaking the life that I once had
I’ve tried, I hate that you already do
I’m making a run from the dark side
Replacing night with the sunlight
I’ve tried, I hate that you already do

Evans Blue – A Cross And A Girl Named Blessed

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged , at 1:28 am by LynxLee

Everything’s going fine.. then a girl messages me. I wrote back (wanting retribution and understanding); and then she (like most girls) says “wow, and I’m the bad one? You know what? Never Mind!”.

I’ll NEVER UNDERSTAND GIRLS! It always feels like a one way traffic, you give and give.. and you GIVE IN. I’VE GIVEN UP!

Love? BAH!

p.s. bad women makes bad men
I mean, I now know why some guys are just freakin’ jerks.

great men has great women behind them and vice versa.
*must control self*

She wears a butterfly on her wrist
But she might as well cut it’s head off
She’s holding out for weapons
to kill the ghost inside

Or at least kill the thought she has of killing her mind
she says “I love you” with her hands,
she says “I hate you” with her eyes

I wear God’s name up by my wrist
but she might as well tear my skin off
She’s letting go convictions,
to release the ghost inside

To release all the suffering of a cross and a girl
I sing “I love you” way too much,
so I’ll say “I hate you” for tonight

She, she said to me,
I will be driving in the wrong direction

Did you ever think, that maybe your life,
Is heading in the wrong direction, baby

There’s a pretty girl somewhere, with a pretty name
But I could never let you know how much this means
I swear we’ll end this war, cause we both know
It wasn’t worth fighting for

She wears a butterfly on her wrist
But she might as well cut it’s head off
She’s holding out for weapons to kill the ghost inside
Or at least kill the thought she has of killing her mind
she says “I love you” with her hands, she says “I hate you” with her eyes

Theres a pretty girl somewhere, with a pretty name
But I could never let you know how much this means
I swear we’ll end this war, cause we both know
It wasn’t worth fighting for

I wear God’s name up by my wrist but she might as well tear my skin off
She’s letting go convictions, to release the ghost inside
To release all the suffering of a cross and a girl
I sing “I love you” way too much, so I’ll say “I hate you” for tonight

Theres a pretty girl somewhere, with a pretty name
But I could never let you know how much this means
I swear we’ll end this war, cause we both know
It wasn’t worth fighting for

She, she said to me I will be driving in the wrong direction
Did you ever think, that maybe your life,
Is heading in the wrong direction, baby

There’s a cross up on the wall
See from the corner of your eye
When you’re down on your knees
And she’s begging please
So go and lay back down tonight
Because you won’t know who you are
Until you’re down on your knees
And you’re begging please

Theres a pretty girl somewhere, with a pretty name
But I could never let you know how much this means
I swear we’ll end this war, cause we both know
It wasn’t worth fighting for

Evans Blue – Right Now

Posted in Lyrics tagged , at 8:55 am by LynxLee

“Put your arms around me, push the fears aside
They say that hope will calm the desperate
and hope will change your life
Just give this hand a reason to put the hate aside
They say that all you ever wanted was all you never had”

Hard hits and politics
I don’t care if we are there
We’re right here and right here is fine
What are we fighting for

I see there’s a boy who just wishes his life was through
He just wanted to be accepted just wanted to be understood
Right now he’s losing more than he’s winning, he’s winning
Right now he sees that there’s a future, it’s bright it’s waiting

Put your arms around me push the fear aside
They say that hope will calm the desperate and hope will change your life

The quick fix I won’t predict I can’t tell if I am wrong
I’m right sometimes and sometimes I’m fine
I just wanted someone to dig past me, fight for me
To see the good in me and stay right here cuz right here is fine

Right now I’m crying more than I’m grinning I’ve been thinking
It’s been so long since I’ve lived my life it’s time I’m waiting

Put your arms around me push the fear beside
They say that hope will calm the desperate and hope will change our life
Just give this hand a reason to put the hate aside
They say that all you ever wanted was all you never had

There’s honesty in all the things that you ignored
But honestly how could you ignore me?

Make way for my new angles, make way for twisted versions
A match you’ll light a candle this was more than I could handle
And you may light up these feelings
You left when it was wrong to
Was I such a waste of time, dear
Will you miss me when I’m gone from here

Put your arms around me, push the fears aside
They say that hope will calm the desperate and hope will change your life
Just give this hand a reason to put the hate aside
They say that all you ever wanted was all you never had

Let go of right now, let go of right now
Let go of right now, just let go of right now
Let go

Evans Blue – Cold (But I’m Still Here)

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged at 7:12 am by LynxLee

Original video here.
Also check out the live acoustic version.

You know how it feels like to feel cold (alone) and still in love with someone? This song expresses the deep feelings for most couples who faces the simple problem of not knowing somebody entirely and yet committed to him/her.

The live acoustic version in youtube (link above) shows Kevin Matisyn (lead vocalist) explaining the song, “Cold (But I’m Still Here) is a song about falling in love too fast and all the perils of doing that. All the feelings that you have, become so strongly that when they go away, it can be that true mental (not sure of the word).”

I’m feeling rather cold these days. I guess I’m moving a little too fast. Gonna have to backtrack.

Cheers,
DanL

cold, but I’m still here, blind, ’cause I’m so blind
say never
we’re far from comfortable this time
cold, now we’re so cold, mine, and you’re not mine
say never
we’re far from obvious this time

COLD, you broke me from the very first night
I’d love you ’til the day that I die
I’m far too comfortable this time
COLD, I loved you from the very first night
you broke me ’til the day that I die
I’m far too obvious this time

Hello, I’m your martyr, will you be my gangster
can you feel my trigger hand, moving further down your back
when you hide, hide inside that body
but just remember that when I touch you
the more you shake, the more you give away

cold, but I’m still here, blind, ’cause I’m so blind, say never
we’re far from comfortable this time
cold, now we’re so cold, mine, and you’re not mine, say never
we’re far from obvious this time

wait, another minute here, time will kill us after all
now can you feel its second hand wrapped around your neck
so fall into my eyes and fall into my lies
but don’t you forget
the more you turn away, the more I want you to stay

cold, but I’m still here, blind, ’cause I’m so blind, say never
we’re far from comfortable this time
cold, now we’re so cold, mine, and you’re not mine, say never
we’re far from obvious this time

you’re so endearing, you’re so beautiful,
well I don’t look like they do, and I don’t love like they do
but I don’t hate like they do
am I ever on your mind?

cold, but I’m still here, blind, ’cause I’m so blind, say never
we’re far from comfortable this time
cold, now we’re so cold, mine, and you’re not mine, say never
we’re far from obvious this time

COLD, you broke me from the very first night
I’d love you ’til the day that I die
I’m far too comfortable this time
COLD, I loved you from the very first night
you broke me ’til the day that I die
I’m far too obvious this time

Evans Blue – Pin-Up

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged at 3:47 pm by LynxLee

But don’t look down because I don’t know
Falling is fatal from this height i know
I should’ve never held you up
This high, this high

Your not the first girl
To dry her fears on her arms
In hopes to capture
All the memories that hunted you down
You can sew your lips shut
With your heart strings
Cause God knows that you don’t need them to hold yourself together

But don’t look down because I don’t know
Falling is fatal from this height i know
I should’ve never held you up
This high, this high

Your not the first girl
To cut her fears in her arms
Then let them trickle down
Past memories to pools in your hands
You can hang yourself with your heartstrings
Cause I know you wont use them to hold yourself up anymore

But don’t look down because I don’t know
Falling is fatal from this height i know
I should’ve never held you up
This high, this high

Pull the needle from the back of my vains
Pull the needle, pull the pin from my picture
From my picture

And I will fall to the floor
But you have to pull yourself together

But don’t look down because I don’t know
Falling is fatal from this height i know
I should’ve never held you up
This high, this high

This high, this high

Quote This is what I said Unquote.

It’s the conversation in our minds after a little conflict with anyone. I think it’s pretty obvious that this is a break up song. Yet, the lyrics, again, is personal to me.

Evans Blue delivers the whole song so amazingly. They are best known for hard rock music but this song shows how capable they are in any type of genre. It’s like Linkin Park singing “My December”.

I just simply like how the song is structured, the descriptions are very vivid. I dig how the song goes “…but you finally broke my…” and not describing more. I’m totally enjoying Kevin Matisyn’s voice (the lead singer). As a matter of fact, this is my favourite band from now on.

Perhaps I’m that depressed? but isn’t this LyricalExpression?
Cheers,
Dan

How different I’ve become

You turned your light off, so i turned mine

away from the nothing that you feel for me.

Is this how you wanna go down
Right before my eyes, you are the saddest sight, I know
