I wrote this song a little while ago and played it at my school’s coffee house. I really like the meaning behind it but I’m not sure if I want to explain what it is. I think not knowing the artist’s intent of a song allows it to take on new life with the listener and that is one of the reasons I love music so much.
So I would love to hear what the song means to you! And then if you want to know, I can tell you what my inspiration for it was. (:
I want to see you live but you never have any shows!
I was supposed to play one the other night but half way there my car broke down so I never made it! I’ve been taking things kind of slow lately just focusing on school and working towards a scholarship. But don’t worry, I should be playing some shows within the next couple of months. (:
When I was little, I couldn’t take the feeling I would get on Christmas Eve. Even after I knew the big fat man was a hoax, the level of excitement that came with knowing everything I dreamed of having hid right out in the living room underneath the Christmas tree was almost unbearable. The feeling remains indescribable and unprecedented to this day. With my rosy eyes wide open and my imagination running wild with images of the presents to be torn open in just a few hours, I anxiously tossed and turned in my bed. I did this for several minutes before I would decide I had tortured myself long enough and it would be acceptable to sneak out into the living room once again to gaze upon the concealed treasures. In retrospect, the excitement of Christmas Eve in many cases brought me more joy than any of the actual gifts I received ever did. So here I sit, seventeen years old, at 12:55 A.M. on December 25th, 2011 reminiscing about the feelings I used to get because this year I don’t feel any of them. And I didn’t feel them last year, or the year before that. Not to say that I’m not happy; I’ve been feeling the happiest I ever have this winter break. I’m surrounded by family and friends who love me and whom I love in return. What else is there to ask for? What I’m really wondering is if I will ever feel that Christmas Eve feeling again. But for now, I’m healthy and alive as are the people that I love and that is more than enough.
So today I was driving in my car, with my iPod on shuffle and Five Feet Away came on and it was a totally weird (good) feeling, haha I had forgotten I purchased it off iTunes, and it definitely brightened my day. It was nice. Just thought I'd let you know :) I love what you're doing Chris, really!
