10 Day Challenge: Two Songs

Today's theme is songs. Two songs.




How am I expected to choose just two songs? I have 3880 in my itunes library! I have a lot of favourites and could listen to and talk about music all day long. I don't really have one favourite song; rather like a whole play list of favourite songs which I can't narrow down.

So, instead of making this a post of my two favourite songs, I'll share two songs which I've currently got on repeat.



Linkin Park: Roads Untravelled





Weep not for roads untraveled
Weep not for paths left alone
'Cause beyond every bend
Is a long blinding end
It's the worst kind of pain
I've known


Give up your heart left broken
And let that mistake pass on
'Cause the love that you lost
Wasn't worth what it cost
And in time you'll be glad it's gone

Woah-oo-oh-oh
Woah-oo-ohh
Woah-oo-oh-oh
Woah-oo-ohh

Weep not for roads untraveled
Weep not for sights unseen
May your love never end
And if you need a friend
There's a seat here alongside me
 
Woah-oo-oh-oh
Woah-oo-ohh
Woah-oo-oh-oh
Woah-oo-ohh
 
 
Evanescence: Lost In Paradise




 
I've been believing in something so distant
As if I was human
And I've been denying this feeling of hopelessness
In me
, in me

All the promises I made
Just to let you down
You believed in me, but I'm broken

I have nothing left
And all I feel is this cruel wanting

We've been falling for all this time
And now I'm lost in paradise

As much as I'd like the past not to exist
It still does
And as much as I'd like to feel like I belong here
I'm just as scared as you


I have nothing left
And all I feel is this cruel wanting

We've been falling for all this time
And now I'm lost in paradise

Run away, run away
One day we won't feel this pain anymore

Take it all away
Shadows of you
Cause they won't let me go

Until I have nothing left
And all I feel is this cruel wanting

We've been falling for all this time
And now I'm lost in paradise

Alone, and lost in paradise
 
 
If you actually listen to or read the lyrics, you'll see that these are both quite melancholy, but I promise you I'm not in a blue mood at the moment, although I do relate to some of the lyrics.  I just think these two songs are both really beautiful. They're beautifully written, sang, and played by such talented artists.
 
I love both Evanescence and Linkin Park, and I'm passionate about each of their albums, but I especially love Amy Lee and Mike Shinoda's voices and how talented they both are- especially on the piano. They're two of the most talented musicians of our generation.
 
I hope you'll give these two songs a listen and let me know what you think!

  1. i've not heard that linkin park song, i'll listen. mainly i need to just say yay evanescence! <3 it's a tough call but this song may be my favourite from the new album.

    ps, louise would you ever consider turning captcha off your comments? took mine off lately and not had any spam problems, it just makes it easier for me to spam all over your blog ahah ;)

    1. I really love the new Linkin Park album, but maybe I'm just biased as I've loved them for 11 or 12 years. Evanescence are equally awesome. I think mine would be The Change, My Heart is Broken, Swimming Home, and this one.

      I didn't actually think I had it turned on! I hate the bloody thing; so annoying to fill in all the time. I'm more than happy to remove it so you can spam me with your lovely comments ;)

    2. we have the exact same favourites on the new album! i'd choose between those too x) and ah thank you! this shall make my life much easier ahah because some of the captcha codes were getting near-indecipherable, i don't think it wanted me to comment on your blog any more! xD xxx

    3. Well you obviously share my good taste! Haha. Let me know if it's still appearing when you comment- I 'think' I took it off. It might not want you to, but I still do! xx

    1. You should; it's such a great album. It gets better with every listen.

      I seriously didn't think I had that option checked. I hate captcha with a capital C!
