I'm here, I'm thinking
Distant- not quite far enough
I feel, I'm breathing
Why can't I feel anything at all?
I know there's got to be an easier way than I'm living
There's got to be an explanation for the way I'm feeling now.
Why can't I see my inability?
It's easy enough take a look and you'll see
I'm left to myself, now I'm leaving it all
Behind me, before me my inadequacies stand tall.
A hundred new distractions promising decisive actions
A hundred meantime saviours fail my failings time and time again.
Why can't I see my inability?
It's easier with your eyes open to see
I've made my mistakes, I'll continue to fall
A constant reminder, repeating the beating before.
Why can't I see, that everything I want to be-
Is slowly eating away at what's left of me?
I'm not alone, the decision is still mine though-
To accept the love that He has shown and His way.
And that means from today-
I'll live to live it out another way.
Now I can see-
My heart had to change for my mind to be free
In thinking I could ever right what was wrong
I couldn't see clearly that in You I had to belong.

    This is probably my favourite Seraphs song. Only Sam Barnes' second song, this shows so much musical maturity...the music is amazing. It's somewhat of a punk epic, being nearly 5 minutes of wall-to-wall bass and guitar riffs and thumping drums...as for the meaning of the lyrics, they're pretty straightforward, but well-written. Also check out "Blood Red Under Blue Skies" and "The Simple Equation" from the new album. Actually every song is a classic.

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
