In a previous post i said that music is a very important part in my life. We all have that song that expresses exactly how are we feeling, what we are thinking and the things we are going through. This is why music plays a significant part in our lives. As for me, I believe that the following songs express some of the situations in my life:

Song: So Far Away
Artist: Avenged Sevenfold

      Listening to this song reminds me of my grandmother who died six years ago. She was a very loving  woman who gave everything that she had to protect her children and all of her grandchildren. Even though she is “so far away” we still remember her every day with joy and happiness as if she was still with us, because I know she is taking care of all of us from heaven.

                                 Never feared for anything
                           Never shamed but never free
                        A laugh that healed the broken heart
                                  With all that it could

                              Lived the life so endlessly
                            Saw beyond what others see
                           I tried to heal your broken heart
                                 With all that I could
                                                                                                                                  Will you stay?
                               Will you stay away forever?

                          How do I live without the ones I love?
                    Time still turns the pages of the book it's burned
                              Place and time always on my mind
                     I have so much to say but you're so far away

                                I love you, you were ready
                             The pain is strong and urges rise
                              But I'll see you, when He lets me
                            Your pain is gone, your hands untied

Song: Thank You
Artist: Simple Plan

      Since I was in high school through this day I had a group of friends who I thought they were my best friends. We shared a lot of things all these years, adventures, happy times, sad times… well everything. I thought that our friendship will last forever but you never stop knowing the people that surrounds you. Last semester I had a very busy schedule with my classes and pre-practicum and I barely had time for myself and obviously,  I didn't have time to hang out with them either . Because of this, and because a made new friends they decided to put an end to our friendship with a status in facebook, not face to face…. by facebook showing their real faces ending ten years of friendship just because I was dedicated to my studies and because I made new friends.

                     I thought that I could always count on you,
                 I thought that nothing could come between us two.
                    We said as long as we would stick together,
                             We’d be alright, We’d be ok.
                      But I was stupid And you broke me down
                             I’ll never be the same again.

                            So thank you for showing me,
                        That best friends can not be trusted,
                            And thank you for lying to me,
          Your friendship, the good times we had you can have them back.

Song: The Gift of a Friend
Artist: Demi Lovatto

        After all of these events with my “friends”, I am very happy that I made these new friends. One of these is one of my classmates from the education classes. In the two years that I’ve known this girl, she has shown me that true friends really exist. Also, I made new friends this summer during my vacations in Europe who were to me like they were my friends years ago. I maybe lost some friends but I was given some others who are very good friends to me.

                The world comes to life and everything's bright
          From beginning to end when you have a friend by your side
                   That helps you to find the beauty you are
       When you open your heart and believe in the gift of a friend
                             The gift of a friend

           Someone who knows when you're lost and you're scared
                    And they're through the highs and the lows
                   Someone to count on, someone who cares
                          Beside you wherever you'll go

Song: Let the Music Play
Artist: Good Charlotte

       Everytime that I have a problem or I’m sad my refuge is listening to music. This helps me during difficult times because the impact that music has on us is very strong helping us to forget these problems even though if it’s just for a moment. Like the title of the song, I let the music play to wash away the all the problems and all the pain.

There's a song that you can find
                         In every moment of your life
                        In every tear you've ever cried
                          In every painful last goodbye

                     So when the system breaks you down
                             Just listen to the sound
                          What do I do when it's all been done
                       When the words have all been sung
                        And I've given up the best of me
                               Let the music play

                          When I'm hanging by a thread
                            And I've got nothing to give
                                Let the music play
                                Let the music play

Song: We Believe
Artist: Good Charlotte

    With all the violence and all the situations going on around us, most people think that maybe humans are losing their humanity and that we have no remedy at all. I believe that we still have time to create conscious on what is happening around us and start to change the way we think, the way we act, the way we treat others so we can create a new world of peace, respect and love. We as humans we can do all of this if we believe like I do.

                           We are all the same
                   Human in all our ways and all our pains
                                (So let it be)
                 There’s a love that could fall down like rain
                                 (Let us see)
                      Let forgiveness wash away the pain
                               (What we need)
               And no one really knows what they are searching for
                                  (We believe)
T                   his world is crying for so much more

                                We believe(x6)
                                  In this love
                                    We believe(x5)
                                  In this love

                    So this world is too much for you to take
                          Just lay it down and follow me
                             I’ll be everything you need
                                   In everyway

Song: Save You
Artist: Simple Plan

     This song  was written by Pierre Bouvier, vocalist of the band because he had a brother who battled against cancer but thankfully, he won this battle.  This song means a lot to me at this very moment because I have an uncle who was diagnosed with cancer and told that he has only six months to live. It is a very difficult time for me and my family because seeing him suffering and with pain it gets me angry because he didn’t deserve all that is happening to him. Listening to this song definitely helps me go through this difficult time.

                     Take a breath, I pull myself together
                   Just another step until I reach the door
           You'll never know the way it tears me up inside to see you
             I wish that I could tell you something to take it all away

                        Sometimes I wish I could save you
               And there's so many things that I want you to know
                           I won't give up till it's over
                  If it takes you forever I want you to know

                 When I hear your voice it's drowning in whispers
                  It's just skin and bones, it's nothing left to take
               And no matter what I do I can't make you feel better
               If I only I could find the answer to help me understand

Song: Perfect
Artist: Simple Plan
        This song suits me very well because there was a point in my life where I didn’t have the support of my dad. He always thought that just because he gave me material things he was a great father. He hasn’t always been there where I needed him the most. Every time that I needed help the only one who was there for me was my mother. No matter how hard I tried to make him proud, it just wasn’t enough for him. Now, we don’t speak that much but I am thankful to have a mother who has supported me and be there when I needed her the most.

                               Hey, Dad, look at me
                        Think back, and talk to me
                     Did I grow up according to plan?
                   And do you think I'm wasting my time
                         Doing things I want to do?
                But it hurts when you disapproved all along
                      And now I try hard to make it
                      I just want to make you proud
                  I'm never gonna be good enough for
                    You can't pretend that I'm alright
                        And you can't change me

                              'Cause we lost it all
                          Nothin' lasts forever
                       I'm sorry I can't be perfect
                           Now it's just too late
                           And we can't go back
                       I'm sorry I can't be perfect

                             I try not to think
                         About the pain I feel inside
                  Did you know you used to be my hero?
                       All the days you spent with me
                          Now seem so far away
                  And it feels like you don't care any more
                       And now I try hard to make it
                       I just want to make you proud
                  I'm never gonna be good enough for you 
                         I can't stand another fight
                           And nothing's all right

Nothing's gonna change the things that you said
                   And nothing's gonna make this right again
                          Please don't turn your back
                   I can't believe it's hard just to talk to you
                           But you don't understand

Song: Still Into You
Artist: Paramore

        Back when I was in my second year of college, I met this really cute guy. He and I had the same taste in music, we both love animals and even we both love mustangs (car). I totally had a crush in this guy and I felt that he had a crush on me also. Then, I had to change from American University to the UPR and lost all contact with this guy… I had no facebook at that time but then, I saw him working at a mall that I visit frequently and well, I kind of have this crush, but just a little….

                I should be over all the butterflies
                  But i'm into you (I'm in to you)
                And baby even on our worst nights
                     I'm into you (I'm into you)
               Let em wonder how we got this far
             Cause I don't really need to wonder at all
                      Yeah after all this time
                         I'm still into you

Song: Thank You
Artist: Good Charlotte
       I dedicate this song to a very special person in my life.... my mom. This woman has been with me and supported me in every stage in my life. She has sacrificed a lot of things to take care of my brother and I, working like an animal to give us everything that we need so that we won’t miss anything. I love my mom with all my heart and I thank god for giving me a mother who loves me and who is always in the good and the worst with us.

        I'm sitting here I'm thinking back to a time when I was young... 
                        My memory, is clear as day 
     I'm listening to the dishes clink, you were downstairs, you would sing 
                             Songs of praise 

And all the times we laughed with you, and all the times that you stayed true to                                 us Now we say... 

                I said I thank you, I'll always thank you 
         More than you could know, than I could ever show 
                   And I love you, I'll always love you 
         There's nothing I won't do, to say these words to you 
                    That you're beautiful forever

Song: S.O.S
Artist: Good Charlotte

        This song describes perfectly how I am feeling at this very moment. I am the kind of person who when has a problem doesn’t like to tell anyone because I don't like to bother anyone with my problems keeping all of them to myself. Right now with my uncle’s disease, I look like I’m happy outside but on the inside…. well, I am truly destroyed.

                            Is anybody listening?
                    Can they hear me when I call?
                     I'm shooting signals in the air
                    'Cause I need somebody's help
                      I can't make it on my own
                        So I'm giving up myself
                     Is anybody listening, listening?

             I've been stranded here, and I'm miles away
                Making signals hoping they'd save me
                   I lock myself inside these walls
                 'Cause out there, I'm always wrong
                    I don't think I'm gonna make it

                       So, while I'm sitting here
                      On the eve of my defeat
                          I write this letter
                        And hope it saves me

             I'm stuck in my own head and I'm oceans away
             Would anybody notice if I chose to stay?
                       I'll send an S.O.S. tonight
                     And wonder if I will survive
           How in the hell did I get so far away this time?

                       So now I'm sitting here
                  The time of my departure's near
                           I say a prayer
                     "Please someone save me"

                I'm lost here, I can't make it on my own
               I don't wanna die alone, I'm so scared
                    Drowning now, reaching out
                   Holding on to everything I love
                        Crying out, dying now
                           Need some help
