Hello Hello!!


June 23rd, 2005

Sometimes you can't make it on your own... @ 01:51 pm

orcho5000:
Today, my dad's been dead six years.


Tough, you think you've got the stuff
You're telling me and anyone
You're hard enough

You don't have to put up a fight
You don't have to always be right
Let me take some of the punches
For you tonight

Listen to me now
I need to let you know
You don't have to go it alone

And it's you when I look in the mirror
And it's you when I don't pick up the phone
Sometimes you can't make it on your own

We fight all the time
You and I... that's alright
We're the same soul
I don't need... I don't need to hear you say
That if we weren't so alike
You'd like me a whole lot more

Listen to me now
I need to let you know
You don't have to go it alone

And it's you when I look in the mirror
And it's you when I don't pick up the phone
Sometimes you can't make it on your own

I know that we don't talk
I'm sick of it all
Can you hear me when I Sing,
you're the reason I sing
You're the reason why the opera is in me

Where are we now?
I've got to let you know
A house still doesn't make a home
Don't leave me here alone

And it's you when I look in the mirror
And it's you that makes it hard to let go
Sometimes you can't make it on your own
Sometimes you can't make it
The best you can do is to fake it
Sometimes you can't make it on your own

-U2

Shows how much I know...I always thought that was a song from a father, not to a father.

It could go either way. The only trouble is the bridge where Bono sings "you're the reason why the opera is in me". In his case, it's definitely from him to his father.

I know something of how you might feel. This June marked one year since my father passed away. This song just says so much.

I am so sorry.

Whenever I hear this song, I think of what it'll be like when my father dies. It's incredibly depressing.
