Be careful what you wish for, 'Cause you just might get it all

It is surprising how your feelings can betray you even if you're behind the safety of a monitor and a key-board and not staring in the eyes of the one you're talking to...

Some 10 minutes back, I was chatting with this dear friend . How easily he figured out that something was not right with me and in an effort to cheer me up he sent me this song. It's by Daughtry and it's called 'Home'. Now, Daughtry happens to be one of my favourite singers anyways and his lyrics are simply heart-rending, but this person didn't know it when he sent me the song. Sheer coincidence, yes (even though I don't believe in coincidences).
The song made me cry and this person blamed himself for it (jerk!) and logged off (nincompoop!).
But perhaps, he must be silently smiling to himself for he knew that was exactly what I needed: some solitude, nice music,reflective lyrics and a catharsis!
Thanks. 
It is amazing how what a good night's sleep or a good half hour of catharsis (and I'm not referring to stimulated evacuation of the bowels here) can do to you. Our eyes need to be cleaned with some tears and our minds with some suspended consciousness in a while to make us see the beauty of life yet again.

I felt I should share it with everyone and so, here I am with the song and the lyrics:  






I'm staring out into the night,
Trying to hide the pain.
I'm going to the place where love
And feeling good don't ever cost a thing.
And the pain you feel's a different kind of pain.

Well I'm going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I'm not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don't regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old,
So I'm going home.
Well I'm going home.

The miles are getting longer, it seems,
The closer I get to you.
I've not always been the best man or friend for you.
But your love, it makes true.
And I don't know why.
You always seem to give me another try.

So I'm going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I'm not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don't regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old,
So I'm going home.
I'm going home.

Be careful what you wish for,
'Cause you just might get it all.
You just might get it all,
And then some you don't want.
Be careful what you wish for,
'Cause you just might get it all.
You just might get it all, yeah.

Oh, well I'm going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I'm not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don't regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old.
I said these places and these faces are getting old,
So I'm going home.
I'm going home.
 


On a parting note, a line from this song that strikes me every single time-  "Be careful what you wish for, 'Cause you just might get it all."



Give it a thought.
:-)

Theme upgrade - Nice! (Avoiding the serious conversation... :D)

I was sent the song "Unwell" by a friend when I was down too.

Some songs could really do the trick for you. 'If you wanna be somebody else' from Bedazzled uplifts me almost always. :D

Hope you get back to your ass kicking best soon. :D

Creation said...

@ Amith

Naah, I hadn't.

I haven't read your entire blog yet.. just the first few posts...

by the way, when are you planning to end your sabbatical.

I do listen to Phoebe's songs whenever i feel a little low... but sometimes a catharsis is necesary too.

You can relate to my posts quite well eh... going through something similar?

And you don't have to buddy buddy to suggest me a song.. Gawdd.. is there some hard and fast rule for that??

Thank you so much for visiting.

First time here...loved your post.Here's something i wrote when i was blue...
********************

absent- but not gone
my brain rambles
socially withdrawn
don't feel igored
or call me stupid
Just get my attention,
bring my brain to the present
this is where it's at
because here with you
these thaughts won't stew
though times were great
the past is gray
I'll fill the blanks
another day
*******************

take care...

Siya said...

YAYY!! to favorite reader wala part!! :D :D

Oh yeah, wonder why I never figured out that creation thing. Maybe cause it wasn't that obvious!! :P

Gawwwwwwwdd!!! THAT was quick!! Who ARE you?? LOL..I mean..Do I know you or does any of your friends know me or what??!! :-O :-O :-O This was totally unexpected..since I was trying not to reveal my name on my blog. Oh and if it's okay..can you please delete that comment there??? Pretty pweeeease..Oh, you should re-post it without that last line!! Yeah. Do that!! Btw, leave me a hint on my shoutbox! I love you..thank you!! :D :D

Creation said...

@ Siya


And I love to see how you love being the first one here. You are climbing the list to become my favorite reader pretty fast!!

Lol... That's the case with me too.. pr perhaps when my replies are in monosyllables instead of the generally page-long replies..

Glad you liked the lyircs, you'll love the song too.

Thank you foir the aprreciation. It is much cherished! :-)

And I thought it was pretty easy to figure that out coz the Hindi equivalent of Creation is Kriti..

Creation said...

@ oo7

Oh.. that's nice!
I could totally relate to the poem..
there are times when you just don't want to fill in the blanks but want smeone to understand the (somehow) what should be filled in there...

Creation said...

@ Siya

Lol.. might not have been that obvious.. true..

I did as you requested :-)

For the rest of the questions... look at this for an answer- http://ap-city-of-dijns.blogspot.com/

Aupsy-The cOOlest One!! said...

i came looking for my blogger award...wo to nai mila...read this post instead...n m wondering whether that was just a bait to get me to ur blog...hehe

again... wondering when kriti will return to her own cheerful self(n m sure the blog theme will reflect it when it happens!!! )

Creation said...

Ayush

This is what happens when you check your own blog and don't respond to the messages in time.

Here, take a look at this- http://kreation-soul.blogspot.com/2009/04/i-love-your-blog-award.html

And that was an indigenous way of letting me know that you didn't like the blog theme. :P

I think it's nice, but the search is still on for a nicer theme...

Thanks for dropping by, though. :-)

C R D said...

gonna download this right away [:D]

deepazartz said...

Hey Kriti

It has so many times with me too..there are some friends who really know you well & with you sort of have a telepathis connection. There are times when I had wanted to have a close talk with my friends and there I see them Online. It's always been like a miracle or esle I find at least a mail by them. Happens most of the times with my Mom.
But then thts a great feeling:)

If ever you want a close talk...you have me here:)
you seem to be such a sweet l'tl Gem!

Have a nice, sweet day!

Creation said...

@ CRD

accchha!! hmmmm!! Am I smelling Spring in ur life again?? hmmmm Hope so!!

:-))))

7IYvmNt339E1TK5e0BX3yuHL5ovyiXuQ.pdHPZc- said...

btw i forgot to say... somehow this song does not hit me.. maybe because I am home already.. so any song that takes me away from home hits me more..

hmm.. what does it say? it says to you that we always aspire for something we do not have... hmmmm?

""Be careful what you wish for, 'Cause you just might get it all."" Yes.. this is a worry..which is why I do not wish at all!!
