Thoughts and other ramblings

3 Doors Down is one of my early favorite bands, and have a permanent place on my players. They have quite a few songs from When I’m Gone, Let Me Be Myself, Be Somebody, Landing in London, Your Arm Feels Like Home, etc. But today I decided to go with When You’re Young. I’ve loved this song from the moment I first heard it. I could relate sooo much. Even now, years after it was released.

I’m still trying to find out who I am, though maybe now I have faint idea of where I’m going. But I don’t think I’ll ever stop feeling like I’m trapped in place, that I don’t belong, trying to force myself to play by the rules and fit in. But is it worth? Do I even want to fit in? Belong, yes, but fit in? I’m not sure. On the other hand, being always the one with a different opinion, or a different taste or a different set of standards can make life a hell. At the end of the day, the one who has to make compromises is always the one who stands out just to keep peace. One day though I won’t back down anymore.

Lyrics

So far away from knowing where I am going
I am trying hard to find out who I am
They all say that I don’t know what I am doing
I say they don’t hardly understand

Why can’t they remember
What I’ll never forget
How these dreams can come undone
When you’re young

You give what you give cause they make you
Trapped inside a place that won’t take you
And they want you to be what they make you
It’s already over and done
When you’re young

Everything seems perfect
Everything’s OK
It will all get better now
At least that’s what they say
But I don’t see it coming

You give what you give cause they make you
Trapped inside a place that won’t take you
And they want you to be what they make you
It’s already over and done
When you’re young

Days never seem longer
They say it’s better this way
I hope one day I am stronger than I feel
And I hope that it feels different than today

You give what you give cause they make you
Trapped inside a place that won’t take you
And they want you to be what they make you
(It’s already over and done) [x3]
When you’re young

Why can’t they remember
What I’ll never forget
How these dreams can come undone
When you’re young
