There are songs that sing about alienation, unrequited love and the likes..here's my list of ten..you can add up to it, lets make this a tribute to the musicians who somehow gazed out at our emotions and set it to music so that we feel less alone, and makes us feel that somehow someone out there understand...
1. Welcome To My Life - Simple Plan
Do you wanna be somebody else?
Are you sick of feeling so left out?
Are you desperate to find something more?
Before your life is over
Are you stuck inside a world you hate?
Are you sick of everyone around?
With their big fake smiles and stupid lies
While deep inside you're bleeding..
Listen to when... youre angry, and you feel like the world is against you..this song really speaks about what somebody is going through when they feel estrangement to the world. Actually most Simple Plan songs do.
2. Creep - Radiohead
you're just like an angel
your skin makes me cry
you float like a feather
in a beautiful world
and i wish i was special
you're so very special
but i'm a creep, i'm a weirdo
what the hell i'm doing here?
i don't belong here.
i don't care if it hurts
i want to have control
i want a perfect body
i want a perfect soul
i want you to notice
when i'm not around
Listen to when...youre in intense (I repeat intense) longing for a person to love you back but this person doesnt see you...ouch.
3. Monster - Meg and Dia
His little whispers.
Love Me. Love Me.
That's all I ask for.
Love Me. Love Me.
He battered his tiny fists to feel something.
Wondered what it's like to touch and feel something.
Listen to when... you desperately needed love.
4. Unwanted - Kill Hannah
To the ones who dont belong
I know who you are
listen to when...the song said it, when you feel like you dont belong..this one's the best example of 'someone understands.'
5. Rock Bottom - Spill Canvas
you know you've hit rock bottom
when you're mumbling the words to all her favorite songs
till the neighbors can hear your drunken slurs
you know the end is creeping up when all
that you can feel were the faint remnants of touching her
and wishing they were real.
Listen to when...you long for a person's love..this is a moody song about unrequited love.
6. The Taste, The Touch - Asteria
so this is it
the feeling that ive missed
a subtle kind of pain
that keeps me from sleep
try to explain
how your touch drives me insane
and i cant spend a night
without wishing i was with you
Listen to when... you love someone who cant love you back, its Asteria's own way of saying 'im paralyzed with longing and the sedative would be you.'
7. Teenagers - My Chemical Romance
Teenagers scare the living shit out of me
They could care less as long as someone'll bleed
So darken your clothes or strike a violent pose
Maybe they'll leave you alone, but not me
Listen to when..youre feeling alienated..or deep feeling estrangement to the world..
8. Move Along - All American Rejects
Go ahead as you waste your days with thinking
When you fall everyone stands
Another day and you've had your fill of sinking
With the life held in your
Hands are shaking cold
These hands are meant to hold
Listen to when.. again you feel like you dont belong.
9. Ohio is for Lovers - Hawthorne Heights
And I can't make it on my own.
(And I can't make it on my own.)
Because my heart is in Ohio.
So cut my wrists and black my eyes.
(Cut my wrists and black my eyes)
So I can fall asleep tonight, or die.
Because you kill me.
Listen to when.. youre missing someone you love and when you feel a bit of loss..
10. Love Song for No One - John Mayer
Searching all my days just to find you
I'm not sure who I'm looking for
I'll know it
When I see you
Until then, I'll hide in my bedroom
Staying up all night just to write
A love song for no one
Listen to when..youre feel like writing a song but no one inspires you to..
