It evaporated.

currently:listening to 'Evaporated' by Ben Folds Five.

"Here I stand, sad and free.
I can't cry, I can't see
What I've done.
Oh God, what have I done?"
...
"I poured my heart out.
It evaporated...see?"

[Evaporated - Ben Fords Five]


This song is one of the best songs I've listened to in a while.
But mind you, its quite an old song too. (Released back in 97. I would have been about 6 years old.)
It's pretty much singing what my heart feels right now. And I love it when a song can relate to all your emotions.
I don't know why I really feel like this. Maybe it's because someone is drilling holes into the house so the room is shaking. Maybe it's cause my feet are cold and sore. Maybe it's cause I'm "stewing" (as my friend puts it) over a guy (because now, I'm unsure again whether I do like him or not.)

It's probably that last one.

Gosh. I hate feeling this way.
Part of me reckons I should just tell that guy and let it all out. So I stop going all "ehhhh..."
But then part of me knows that saying something may make it slightly uncomfortable. And awwkkkwwwaaaarrrd.

"She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly.
Off the coast and I'm heading nowhere."
...
"As weeks went by
It showed that she was not fine
They told me son it's time to tell the truth
She broke down and I broke down
Cause I was tired of lying"

[Brick - Ben Folds Five]


I've always wondered that if it's like a divine sign. When certain songs play and certain lyrics stand out to you...is it God speaking through music?

I always feel something when I sing worship songs at Church.
I guess I'd like to think God is trying to reach back through music.


I'm still confused.

...but at least I've learnt that I love these Ben Folds Five songs. Seriously amazing.
