Hello Hello!!

December 2nd, 2004

A house still doesn’t make a home @ 02:23 pm

I'm currently feelin: surprised awed
I'm currently hearin: Fast Cars

I had to chase the UPS man down the street last night in order to get my package from him that had my copy of the deluxe edition of the new album in it.

I put it in my car as I was driving to go pick up friends for dinner. I had heard "Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own" when the guys were on SNL, and liked it then.

When the album track played, I had to pull over because I was crying so much I couldn't see. Out of nowhere, I just totally lost it.

Maybe it's because I know that Bono wrote this about his father, and I don't have anything resembling a functional relationship with mine. Or maybe it was something totally random about that particular moment last night. Regardless, it hit me like only a handful of songs have before.

So yeah. *thumbs up* :)

Yeah, aside from it being my favorite, I get all misty-eyed over it (my father passed away two years ago). I get the same thing from Kite, because it's pretty much the same theme.

But Sometimes You Can't Make it On Your Own pretty much sums up everything that I feel for my father. So yeah, it's an instant favorite.

I started crying to "Miracle Drug" the other day, from out of nowhere. This album should generate some interesting responces from the crowd when played live.

I know what you mean. I was singing along to it the other night and then, all of a sudden, I got all choked up and had to stop. "One", "Kite" and "Walk On" also do that to me.

Every time when I sing ''But tonight, we can be as one'' from Sunday Bloody Sunday I always choke.

I'm experiencing this also with the '' She's running to stand... Still'' line.

I get it with "you've got to cry without weeping, talk without speaking, and scream without raising your voice"... because some days I feel like that's how I go through life.
