Crashed, Burned, Saved, Survived, Loved


Crash And Burn by Savage Garden 





When you feel all aloneAnd the world has turned its back on youGive me a moment pleaseTo tame your wild, wild heart
I know you feel like the walls are closing in on youIt's hard to find reliefAnd people can be so coldWhen darkness is upon your doorAnd you feel like you can't take anymore
Let me be the one you callIf you jump I'll break your fallLift you up and fly away with you into the nightIf you need to fall apartI can mend a broken heartIf you need to crash then crash and burn you're not alone
When you feel all aloneAnd a loyal friend is hard to findYou're caught in a one-way streetWith the monsters in your headWhen hopes and dreams are far awayAnd you feel like you can't face the day

Let me be the one you callIf you jump I'll break your fallLift you up and fly away with you into the nightIf you need to fall apartI can mend a broken heartIf you need to crash then crash and burn you're not alone
Because there has always been heartache and painAnd when it's over you'll breathe againYou'll breathe again

This song by Savage Garden. So where do I start? Firstly I saw song on MTV like ages ago, once or twice. All that I remember was the tune when he says 'then crash and burn you're not alone' and the hand gestures that he does to convey that. I found this song on Youtube like 15 years or so later. 


The meaning of this song by this time now..  had totally turned into unreal, too 80s and 90s stuff. Stupid promises, shallow lyrics. I still listen to this song for the very music I fell for. I mean.. I, as of today, as of a few months completely thwarted these kind of reassuring words. Reassurance as I felt is a sedative given so that you fall equally hard but you drop your guard while you are falling. I hated such words. Loathed them. Give it to me real was what I propagated through my every walk and talk. 


Having totally pressed up my belief system in survival and law of jungle mode, I never wanted to turn the other cheek you see. But this life thing as much hard and cruel it may get, gives me as much...like a sea change, waves pouncing on me, roaring in my ears, pulling away all that I have gathered to unlearn. Time is changing, the past never looked better and the future is the best form of present. 
As I put my headpnones on and hear this same song, I see that person in front of my eyes waving his hands to me telling me, making me feel those words true.. not as words but as actions.  

Now go back to the start of the page and re-read those lyrics and believe it happening just the way I had to. Again and again.. 

Ok done.
