We're leaving here tonight
There's no need to tell anyone
They'd only hold us down
So by the morning's light
We'll be half way to anywhere
Where no one needs a reason

Forget this life
Come with me
Don't look back you're safe now
Unlock your heart
Drop your guard
No one's left to stop you

what is it about songs... lyrics, that just seem able to hit that exact point...
songs... the beauty of songs is that they can capture, emulate what you are feeling... put the intangible down into words, kind of give it a form. and add the correct melody and rhythm... you can do anything from breaking a heart to lifting a broken spirit.
songs... ever experienced... hearing a song, and you inexplicably get pulled back in time to a significant moment when you last heard that song. you can see every detail of that moment, you can taste, feel, smell... everything... that is gone. it becomes alive again, even if only in your mind.
escapism? only if you use it to forget about the reality and choose to live in them. which is so tempting.
maybe thats why i like quoting. sometimes other people can put what you're feeling more aptly. and it is comforting, in a strange way, to know that what you are feeling, although it may be alien to you, isnt alien to this world. the danger of living vicariously...
