I'm not really too sure where this little series of mine is going, or even what to call it, but I think I'm quite happy with it for the time being. This weeks song is In My Veins by Andrew Belle.
I was originally introduced to this song by the wonders of TV as it was used in one of my favourite shows Castle and since seems to be popping up everywhere including Pretty Little Liars and The Vampire Diaries. The song was used in the most recent episode of Castle which I watched on Monday and may of may not have cried at...
My first impression of this song was that it was quite sad purely because of the tempo and key it is in, well I suppose it is rather sad really, but when you delve into the lyrics the meaning of them overshadows everything else.
I think that this beautiful song is about trying to get over someone and move on but failing at doing so despite your best efforts.
The first two lines of this song are 'Nothing goes as planned, everything will change' which, off the bat, gives you a pretty clear picture of the feel of the song and what it's going to be about.
I feel that a lot of emotion is held in the bridge where, to be Frank, it gets rather deep.
'Everything is dark,
It's more than you can take.
But you catch a glimpse of sun light,
Shining down on your face'
I think that this song sort of tells a story as it starts off with heartbreak and sadness then gradually moves on to acceptance but then you take a couple of steps back in the progress that you've made and it all gets too much and giving up seems the best and most logical thing to do, when really it isn't. But then you find a reason to hold on for just a little while longer and it turns out to be the best thing you've ever done.
I love this song and it's constantly on repeat at the moment so I hope everyone else in my house likes it too.
Thanks for reading, see you Sunday!
