Lyrical Relevance

You might’ve heard me use the term in the title before. A particular friend of mine came up with it to describe the sensation you get when you feel like a song really applies to you. It happens to me a lot, probably because I’m so musical all ’round anyway, but I do go through periods where it seems like it’s every damn song.

Right now, against every ounce of conscious control I have, I still get a jolt when I see certain people online. (It would be in the street or on campus, but, well, you know…) I know we all go through periods like this, so I thought I’d share some words to live by I heard in a song.

The person that you were has died
You’ve lost the sparkle in your eyes
You fell for life, into its traps
Now you wanna bridge the gaps
Now you wanna bridge the gaps
Now you want that person back

And all your ammunition’s gone
Run out of fuel to carry on
You don’t know what you wanna do
‘Cause what you want does not want you
If what you want does not want you
And you’ve got no pull to pull you through

Say, “I am”
Say, “I am”
Say, “I am wonderful”

The song is “Wonderful” by Gary Go (iTunes link below), and I first heard it when it was the Free Single of the Week on iTunes a while back. The album version, which I bought after I fell in love with the single, contains a few lines that the single doesn’t, and they’re some of the most relevant, at least for me.

Not that I’ll probably have any control over it, but I also envision using this song as music near the beginning of the feature version of Andante, over a montage…
