Music Muse

Music…the rythm of life.  For me, music is so much more.  It is how I express how I’m feeling, what I’m thinking…I identify with songs.  I’ve always wished I could write music, to be able to get what’s inside out through that avenue would be fantastic.  However, I am not a song writer.  So I identify with other people’s songs.

I discovered Jakalope through a friend.  At first it was only one song but now?  I am loving this music!!  I love the whole album and I listen to it often.  The lyrics are so relatable to me right now.  The dark, haunting, edgyness of their sound just sooths an aching soul.  Anyway, two songs I’m particularly infatuated with at the moment are Tell Me Why and Don’t Cry. 

I can understand why Don’t Cry speaks to me…it’s pretty obvious but I wasn’t so sure about Tell Me Why so I decided to look up the lyrics.  It hit me like a tonne of bricks…it is such a good song to sum up how I’ve been feeling, what inspired the need for a personal journey, it just sums up how I feel. 

I would encourage anyone to look this band (JAKALOPE) up, they are pretty great.

Lyrics to Tell Me Why:

Tracin’ the steps that I take

Feelin’ mistakes that are fake

Makin’ excuses like imaginary friends run away

To where I’ve already been

To where I already am

So tell me tell me it’ll work out so I’ll be ’round again

I look inside I’m surprised at what I see in my eyes

So tell me tell me was I there when I was taught how to lie?

I thought I’d chase paradise but Ill just set off a lie

So tell me tell me did I die when I was taught how to lie?

Don’t tell me what it’ll be because it’s all in degrees

And by degrees what I mean is you don’t see what I see

So is this falling apart or are these pieces of me?

Is this a nightmare to be or am I building a dream?
When did this come to be?

When did things pick up speed?

Tiein’ down my living needs

Tiein’ down my living needs

Oh ohh

Don’t know why (don’t know why)

Don’t know why (don’t know why) Don’t know why

I am here

All that I’ve forgotten is only stoppin to remind me

Only I (Only I)

Know that I (Know that I)

Only I can be my only

Odd sacrifice I suffered twice and all that I did Was believe…
Its funny how life can be the circles dance around me

Drawing a reminder of what I’ve done and who I’ve become

Sleepin’ my days without dreams, Wakin’ a night without sleep

Missing the truth to lie the promises I heard I would keep

I’m lost in my paradise; the walls have built in my life

So tell me tell me will I die if I forget how to lie?
When did this come to be?

When did things pick up speed?

Tiein’ down my living needs

Tiein’ down my living needs

Oh ohh

Don’t know why (Don’t know why)

Don’t know why (Don’t know why)

Don’t know why I am here

All that I’ve forgotten is only stopping to remind me

Only I (Only I)

Know that I (Know that I)

Only I can be my only

Odd sacrifice

I suffered twice and all that I did

Was believe...
