#SongLyricSunday ♫ “Straitjacket Feeling” – The All-American Rejects

SongLyricSunday

I can’t believe it’s already Sunday again, I almost forgot to check for the theme! For anyone who is new to this music challenge, make sure to hop on over to Helen’s blog, This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time for the rules and to check out all of the other song picks for today!

This week’s theme is: Take/Taking

The All-American Rejects were pretty popular in the 90’s and while they competed with similar bands like Blink 182, they definitely had their own sound. The AAR also put out more ballad-worthy tracks, such as this one and the more popular “It Ends Tonight.” Enjoy!

Back me down from backing up
Hold your breath now it’s stacking up
Etched with marks, but I can deal
And you’re the problem and you can’t feel

Try this on, straitjacket feeling
so maybe I won’t be alone
Take back now, my life you’re stealing
Yesterday was hell

But today I’m fine without you
Runaway this time without you
And all I ever thought you’d be
That face is tearing holes in me again

Trust you is just one defense
With a list of others, you don’t make sense
Beg me time and time again
to take you back now, but you can’t win

Take back now, my life you’re stealing
Yesterday was hell

But today I’m fine without you
Runaway this time without you
And all I ever thought you’d be
That face is tearing holes in me,
but today I’m fine without you
Runaway this time without you
And all the things you put me through
I’m holding on by letting go of you

And when that memory slips away
There’ll be a better view from here
And only lonesome you remains
and just the thought of you I fear
Ripples away

Yesterday was hell
Today I’m fine without you
Runaway this time without you
And all I ever thought you’d be
That face is tearing holes in me,
but today I’m fine without you
Runaway this time without you
And all the things you put me through
I’m holding on by letting go of you

Triple Lyric Tuesday

I’ve decided that I shouldn’t be held accountable for any posts I write between the hours of midnight and O:Dark:Stupid.  Especially under the influence of cheesecake.

Hope this week’s selection makes up for the random act of madness!

Breaking_Benjamin~ Away by: Breaking Benjamin

“So fly away
And leave it behind
Return some day
With red in your eyes

“I see you,
Cause you won’t get out of my way
I hear you,
Cause you won’t stop screaming my name
I feel you,
Cause you won’t stop touching my skin
I need you,
I’m coming to take you away…”

 

Silversun+Pickups~ Panic Switch by: Silversun Pickups

“And I’ll try, to hold on tight tonight.
Pink slip, inviting me inside.
Wanna burn skin and brand what once was mine,
But the refuse kept ripping them inside.

“If I go anywhere you want me to go,
How do I know you’ll still follow?…”

And you’re the problem and you can’t feel
