#SongLyricSunday ♪ “Break In” – Halestorm

I’m going off track a little bit with this week’s pick, because one: I couldn’t find a song about weddings that I liked that hasn’t be done a million times over, and two: I’ve never been married, so…I’ve chosen a song that I would want to qualify as my wedding song if I ever did get married (very big if). Frankly, I couldn’t imagine marrying someone who didn’t fit this song, so I guess that’s the real reason why it’s my pick.

In case you haven’t guessed, this week’s theme is: Wedding / Marriage / Diamond / Ring / Cake

I almost picked Rihana’s cover of “Diamonds” by Sia, one of my favorite covers, but despite the very beautiful lyrics, there’s something equally sad about it and I think it’s really about a lost love, so not something you’d want to think about on your wedding day! (well..most people, anyway.) My second runner up was “Black Wedding” by In This Moment ft. Rob Halford of Judas Priest, but that might only qualify for an Addams Family wedding. 😉

The first time I ever heard “Break In” was the very video pasted below. I was checking YouTube for some good Halestorm songs to add to my playlist, when I came across this gem: Lzzy Hale singing with Amy Lee of Evanescence? Hecks, yeah! It’s amazing how well these two women of rock sound together live – though not at all surprising. The camera work could be better, but the sound is perfection. Enjoy! (p.s. I love how Lzzy uses a shout out to the audience to slyly wipe a bug off her arm lol)

Put your lighter in the air and lead me back home
When it's all said and done I'll follow the echoes
I hear you night after night calling out my name
And I find myself running to meet you

I didn't want to escape
From the bricks that are laid down

You are the only one
The only that sees me
Trusts me and believes me

You are the only one
The only one that knows me
And in the dark you show me

Yeah, it's perfectly reckless
Damn, you leave me defenseless
So break in
Break in

You let me fall apart without letting go
Then you pick up the pieces and you make me whole

I didn't want to escape
From the bricks that are laid down

You are the only one
The only that sees me
Trusts me and believes me

You are the only one
The only one that knows me
And in the dark you show me

Yeah, it's perfectly reckless
Damn, you leave me defenseless

So break in
And take everything I have
Until there is nothing left
Until it's just your voice in my head
And when the lights come on
You see me as I am
You're still inside me

You are the only one
The only that sees me
Trusts me and believes me

You are the only one
The only one that knows me
And in the dark you show me

Yeah, it's perfectly reckless
Damn, you leave me defenseless
So break in
Break in

Put your lighter in the air and lead me back home
