I was walking home from French class today, listening to my iPod (as usual) and I had a strange mix of songs come right after each other. First, there was Tracy Chapman's "For You"...
No words to say,
No words to convey,
This feeling inside I have for you.
Deep in my heart,
Safe from the guards
Of intellect and reason,
Leaving me at a loss
For words to express my feelings.
Followed directly by Pearl Jam's "Better Man"...
Tell him, take no more, she practices her speech
As he opens the door, she rolls over
Pretends to sleep as he looks her over.
She lies and says she's in love with him, can't find a better man.
A bit of opposites there...talk about a juxtaposition. But they are a couple of my favorite songs. That's the great part about my current playlist. It's 92 of my favorite songs that really mean something to me at a deeper level. Goddamn, "For You" makes my heart wrench every single time. Beautiful.
