pieces of me in music

Yesterday I spent several hours watching Flyleaf, Breaking Benjamin, and Three Days Grace perform. Must say, I loved it. However, due to foot issues, I was confined to the seating area and not my usual "among the mob" location - which significantly altered the experience. Thus I will have to repeat it when the next opportunity allows! Until then, here are my picks for the best songs from each of the three. Trust me, it has taken me all day to limit it to just these few videos. I've captioned the lyrics in each song that capture me so completely.

Three Days Grace - Pain

Pain, without love
Pain, I can't get enough
Pain, I like it rough
'Cause I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all

Anger and agony
Are better than misery
Trust me, I've got a plan
When the lights go off, you will understand

Three Days Grace - Home

I'll be coming home just to be alone
'Cause I know you're not there
And I know that you don't care
I can hardly wait to leave this place

No matter how hard I try you're never satisfied
This is not a home I think I'm better off alone
You always disappear even when you're here
This is not my home I think I'm better off alone

Breaking Benjamin - Sooner Or Later

Just call my name
You'll be okay
Your scream is
Burning through my veins

Sooner or later
You're gonna hate it
Go ahead and throw your life away
Drivin' me under
Leavin' me out there
Go ahead and throw your life away

Breaking Benjamin - Breath

So sacrifice yourself and let me have what's left
I know that I can find the fire in your eyes
I'm going all the way, get away, please

You take the breath right out of me
You left a hole where my heart should be
You gotta fight just to make it through
'Cause I will be the death of you

Flyleaf - I'm So Sick

Hear it, I'm screaming it
You're heeding to it now
Hear it, I'm screaming it
You tremble at this sound

You sink into my clothes
This invasion makes me feel
Worthless, hopeless, sick

Flyleaf - All Around Me

(official version)

I'm alive
I'm so alive
I'm still alive

I can feel you all around me
Thickening the air I'm breathing
Holding on to what I'm feeling
Savoring this heart that's healing

Solid runner-ups that I couldn't help but mention:
Three Days Grace - Just Like You
Three Days Grace - Animal I Have Become
Breaking Benjamin - Forget It
Breaking Benjamin - Had Enough Sorry, this is a crappy video for this song, but look up the lyrics. I'm in loved with it "You greedy little bastard, you will get what you deserve"
Flyleaf - Again
Flyleaf - Fully Alive

Ok..I'm gonna say it again...I'm jealous. XD All your choices I'm very familiar with and love them as well.

Not a very big fan of FlyLeaf. But, Breaking Benjamins are good. And your choices are pretty good too. Thanks for sharing.

Gavin ~ Easy to see why we agree on the same music. We have the similar thoughts, emotions, and reactions. Some of your posts read as if they came straight from my own head.

Brosreview ~ Flyleaf is hit and miss in my book, and I have far fewer favorites of theirs than either Breaking Benjamin or Three Days Grace. However, they were a part of the show & I didn't get a cheaper ticket by not seeing them perform :) I do enjoy some of their songs. Emotional rampages tend to take me off to another world ... and even Flyleaf can accomplish that feat.

Tracy ~ I always need a vent fest! LOL, hence my addiction to music I would guess. Glad to see you stop by & truly hope you are handling you world as best as can be expected. Big hugs!
