Acoustic #3

You know when you're listening to a song that has that perfect sentiment? It's the perfet beat, it's got just that right amount of 'oomph' and the singer's voice makes your spine tingle? Not nessecaily becuase s/he has a great voice, but because the sound of the lyrics combined with the melody makes you wanna lay in the grass and stare at the ocean, or look solemly into someone's eye in an entirely-too-corny happy movie kinda way.

When I find a song like that, I tend to listen to it repeatively until months later when it's lost it's tingle-ascity on me. The other day I came upon one of those songs while listening to Pandora- Acoustic #3 by the Goo Goo Dolls.

They painted up your secrets
With the lies they told to you
And the least they ever gave you
Was the most you ever knew

And I wonder where these dreams go
When the world gets in your way
What's the point in all this screaming?
No one's listening anyway

Your voice is small and fading
And you hide in here unknown
And your mother loves your father'
Cause she's got nowhere to go

And she wonders where these dreams go'
Cause the world got in her way
What's the point in ever trying?
Nothing's changing anyway

They press their lips against you
And you love the lies they say
And I tried so hard to reach you
But you're falling anyway

And you know I see right through you'
Cause the world gets in your way
What's the point in all this screaming?
You're not listening anyway
