Music Monday: Living in Lightening by: City and Colour

Hi guys! Happy Monday! I’m here with another Music Monday. This meme was created by Drew @The Tattooed Book Geek.

So, I know, I think my first Music Monday was a City and Colour song, but in honour of seeing him concert for the second time this coming Friday (I’m SO excited!!!) I thought it would only seem fitting!

Today I chose a song off his new album A Pill for Loneliness, the opening song, Living in Lightening. I love this song, it’s so calming, but it has such good lyrics.

[Verse 1]
I’d rather walk alone
Than stand in a row
I’d line up everything I own
Decide what should stay and should go

[Verse 2]
This life was mine to choose
Yearning to wander through and through
At times I’ve been battered and bruised
But I’m still breathing in my youth

[Chorus]
Can’t you see I’m sorry that I wasn’t better
At being who you wanted me to be?
I’ve been living in lightning
For what seems like eternity

[Verse 3]
You wear these brooding ghosts
Tighter and tighter ’round your throat
They’re weighing you down like a stone
They might never let you go

[Chorus]
Can’t you see I’m sorry that I wasn’t better
At being who you wanted me to be?
I’ve been living in lightning
For what seems like eternity
Oh, I’ve been living in lightning
For what seems like eternity
