Fix You

You know when it is late at night, you can’t sleep, and you want nothing more than just to talk to someone? You’re over-emotional (deep, lonely, longing, searching, etc.), and even the smallest thing can totally speak and connect with you? Well, for me, nine times out of 10 it is a song.

Now, I purchased Coldplay’s “XY” the day it came out. However, I have never given it a good listening to. In fact, it wasn’t until this morning while I was getting ready for work that I happened across VH1 playing the video for “Fix You.” I probably listened to it six or seven times throughout the day, strictly due to the fact that it was completely embedded in my head like a tick. However, it wasn’t until driving home from work tonight that it totally tied together every emotion and thought that I am having at this moment. Granted, it isn’t on some Bob Dylan or Conor Oberst tip, searching to translate some weird, obscure reference into raw emotion. But guess what? Chris Martin, at this particular moment, is singing to me right now. I assume when he sings “and I will fix you,” he is referring to God. As with the “light” that he refers to. Well, God—I need some fixing, and I certainly need my bones ignited.

Anyways, the point of this post is two-fold: one, I wanted to post the lyrics to this song, because, as I said, it is totally fixating me and my emotions right now. Second, and going back to the first sentence of this post, I am totally at that emotional, wanting-to-talk-to-someone moment right now.

Yeah, it is a totally sappy, heavy post. But this blog isn’t named “Heavy Soul” for nothing, right?

When you try your best but you don't succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And I

Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face
And I

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you.

Wow and a good Friday to everyone else visiting the Heavy Soul blog this fine morning. Please remember we are we are only 47 days away from the 2005 Christmas shopping season.
Hope you start feeling better. This many or may not help, but when I feel like you do, I pray. And most of the time I think it is because I can sort out my feelings and end up with the truth. Prayer has not let me down yet.
Prayer Schmayer. What's with all this God talk. This is really fueling my "Opiate of the Masses" work-in-progress blog post. That's for all of you who think you need to still have your soul to be happy. I gave mine up and now have bliss on tap. (By the way, my whole anti-religion deal is really bullshit. I actually go to church with my parents when I really feel down. Don't tell my boss though.)
Fuck, the second I posted that I got demoted.
