Crashed, Burned, Saved, Survived, Loved
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..
