First off. I'm Shawn. I write a lot of lyrics and poems and stuff. I'm in a band. Hi. How was your day? I'm good, thanks. Second off, would it be legal to post something I wrote in the hopes that people would analyze it and see what they like or don't? This kind of feedback is important to be, especially on lyrics which are one day gonna be sung in front of people. If it's not then that's okay, just wondering.

My song is Mineral - Slower. Mineral being one of the great emo bands of recent history (like all emo bands). The song just conveys so much emotion. Great guitar, great vocals, but what really kills me are the lyrics. It's just not the same when you wake up in the morning with a smile on your face when you know you lied yourself to sleep to make it better. That line gets me so much. The whole song kinda reminds me of the shit I'm in, everyone else is just like yeah school whatever life okay don't think about it too much and it won't bother you, but I'm one of those peple that will never feel the breeze I guess. And thinking about how okay there's all these pretty things in the world but they are just masks on lies. It's kinda sad.


it's been so long since i've been by myself
and i need this more than you will ever know
people like you and me never feel the breeze
people like you and me will never know the easy way
i scream into the wind and laugh as the words slap me in the face
i would gladly trade a lifetime of convenience for an honest day or two
it's just not the same when you're staring into a perfect golden sunset
and thinking about how you sold your soul to send the rain away
it's been so long since i've stood on my two feet
i'd really rather lay here and pretend
but people like you and me never get that peace
it comes from denying that everything is so screwed up it's so screwed up
i stand on a building and throw up my arms to the sky
i swallow my pride and admit that it's not always best to understand the reason why
it's just not the same when you wake up in the morning with a smile on your face
when you know you lied yourself to sleep to make it better make it better.


Nonetheless, one of my favorite songs.
