Lyrically Speaking for April 6

Lyrically Speaking was on break as I looked for new songs to share with everyone. My search through my music library brought me to this great song by the “band” Dashboard Confessional. The reason I put the word bands into quotes is because it’s really just one guy and a band that seems like an afterthought. Chris Carrabba, the singer-songwriter, is really the whole band but it’s more of a name than anything. The lineup is constantly changing.

Anyhow…. this band is the poster-child of Emo music and this song is really interesting in the pain it shows. More than likely Carrabba is an introvert and has little self-worth. Most songs deal with the pain of relationships (as 99% of music does) but his songs seem to have a real punch and emphasis on lyrics. I hope you find this song as inspiring as I do.

From Dashboard Confessional, this is Again I Go Unnoticed.

So quiet
another wasted night,
the television steals the conversation
another wasted breath,
again it goes unnoticed.

Please tell me you’re just feeling tired
cause if it’s more than that I feel that I might break
out of touch, out of time.
Please send me anything but signals that are mixed
cause I can’t read your rolling eyes
out of touch, are we out of time?

Close lipped
another goodnight kiss
is robbed of all it’s passion,
your grip
another time, is slack
it leaves me feeling empty.

I’ll wait until tomorrow
maybe you’ll feel better then
maybe we’ll be better then
so what’s another day
when I can’t bear these nights of thoughts
of going on without you
this mood of yours is temporary
it seems worth the wait
to see your smile again
out of the corner of my eye
won’t be the only way you’re looking at me then.
