New Radicals- You Get What You Give
This is the first song that made me cry. I remember that moment very clearly. I was in the passenger seat of my sisters very dirty car. My knees were jammed into my chest because there was no room on the floor for my feet and I was in a little bit of pain because of it. I had just been at tennis and I was miserable, as I usually was at tennis, and then this song came on. I had heard it many times before, but as Gerard Way wrote, "You only hear the music when your heart begins to break." I was unhappy and scared and this song told me to hold on and push through and wait for the moment when life becomes good again. Today that happened. Four years later, I am finally so happy. I enrolled at college today. I toured Elon University almost a year ago to the day. It was beautiful and hopeful and amazing and everything I ever wanted in my life, and today I submitted my enrollment deposit and committed to a very bright future. I am posting some of my favorite lyrics from the song that told me that today is possible. If you haven't heard this song before, reading the lyrics won't be enough. You can hear the passion oozing out of Gregg's voice as he tells you he believes in you, as he convinces you that you can fly. I can't express my joy. This may not seem like the biggest deal to a lot of people, but college has always seemed like the far-off dream that was so distant it seemed unreal. Today I realized how real it is, and I couldn't be happier.
