MUSIC MONDAY : 21 Guns (Green Day)

I do not know why I thought of this song for this Monday. 

I just remembered that this was a song that was sung and was dedicated by a fine young man to another during the closing program of Summer Camp in 2010.

Somehow, there is something in the words & lyrics that struck me.

“Do you know what’s worth fighting for? When it’s not worth dying for? Does it take your breath away?  And you feel yourself suffocating?

Does the pain weigh out the pride? And you look for a place to hide? Did someone break your heart inside? You’re in ruins

When you’re at the end of the road, and you lost all sense of control.  And your thoughts have taken heir toll.  When your mind breaks the spirit of your soul

Your faith walks on broken glass.  And the hangover doesn’t pass.  Nothing’s ever built to last.  You’re in ruins.

Did you try to live on your own, when you burned down the house and home? Did you stand too close to the fire?  Like a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone?

When it’s time to live and let die, and you can’t get another try, something inside this heart has died.  You’re in ruins

One, 21 guns. Lay down your arms, give up the fight.  One, 21 guns.  Throw up your arms into the sky.  You and I”

 

End of a long weekend.  Have a good week ahead.
