Strike 3, You're Out

I first heard this song over the airwaves two days ago, and it's been ringing in my mind ever since. That's one thing I admire about music, its ability to speak into people's lives and to either soothe them or cajole them into a quiet calm. Either that, of course, or it bites into the worst of your nightmares and fears, surfacing all the hurt and pain you're going through. And this one really speaks to me.

Howie Day - She Says

Sweet is the sight
Of her room
Window open by candle light
How would you know
Cold winter on the shore
Chills the dress she wore
It's on the floor
It feels so warm
Today

And that's why I'm wondering
Why you had to tell me
What's going on in your head
What's wrong
Come around to another time
When you don't have to run

And when she says she wants somebody else
I hope you know
That she doesn't mean you
And when she breaks down and makes a sound
You never hear her
The way that I do
And when she says she wants someone to love
I hope you know
That she doesn't mean you
And when she breaks down and let's you down
I hope you know
That she doesn't mean you

Swing into flight
Over hills
Over her hills, it's twilight
Yeah, I guess that's right now
And while we're here, tell me
Why it's so funny
That you're so funny
When you're mad
Cause it's mad, so mad

And thats why I'm wondering
Why you had to tell me
What's going on in your head
What's wrong
Come around to another time
When you don't have to run

And when she says she wants somebody else
I hope you know
That she doesn't mean you
And when she breaks down and makes a sound
You never hear her
The way that I do
And when she says she wants someone to love
I hope you know
That she doesn't mean you
And when she breaks down and let's you down
I hope you know
That she doesn't mean you

I don't know where you're coming from
And I don't know where you're coming to
And I don't know what it means to me
And you don't know what it means to you
She doesn't mean you

I try my best to continue as normal, but something inside tells me that things could have been so different. If only.
