Lyrical issues.

I love music. I tend to analyze the lyrics too much, though. Tell me, how many of us have felt this way?

"I miss you but I don't miss us." (Virgil - "Amnesia")

How many of us have learned something through hindsight?

"You cannot learn a thing you think you know." (Poets of the Fall - "Dawn")

So, I listen to music and it takes me back to places and times. The crazy summer after graduation. (I swear I had a death wish!) The rough and tumble relationships. The births of my children. The million and one silly events that made me laugh or cry.

I bet someone's written a song about it already. And I bet I'm belting that song out in the car or in the shower while relating it to some obscure event in my life. I know I'm not the only one...
