Lyrical Friday

Welcome to Lyrical Friday! Music is so important in all of our creative journeys and in our own personal soundtrack of life.  So many songs have influenced me and I want to use this day to put up a video and lyrics of songs from all genre’s that I find to have some sort of beauty or impact, or that I just think are amusing!

This weeks choice is from Killswitch Engage. Their music is not everyone’s “bag” but I was instantly drawn in by the power and emotion from their lead Singer, Howard Jones.  The man can blow! His range is outstanding and he sings from the the deepest part of his soul.  They have extremely well written lyrics along with an often positive message.  Love this band!

The End of Heartache by Killswitch Engage from the 2004 release The End of Heartache.

The End of Heartache

Seek me, call me
I’ll be waiting

This distance, this dissolution
I cling to memories while falling
Sleep brings release, and the hope of a new day
Waking the misery of being without you

Surrender, I give in
Another moment is another eternity

(Seek me) For comfort, (Call me) For solace
(I’ll be waiting) For the end of my broken heart
(Seek me) Completion, (Call me) I’ll be waiting
(I’ll be waiting) For the end of my broken heart

You know me, you know me all too well
My only desire – to bridge our division

In sorrow I speak your name
And my voice mirrors my torment

(Seek me) For comfort, (Call me) For solace
(I’ll be waiting) For the end of my broken heart
(Seek me) Completion, (Call me) I’ll be waiting
(I’ll be waiting) For the end of my broken heart

Am I breathing?
My strength fails me
Your picture, a bitter memory

For comfort, for solace
(Seek me) For comfort, (Call me) For solace
(I’ll be waiting) For the end of my broken heart
(Seek me) Completion, (Call me) I’ll be waiting
(I’ll be waiting) For the end of my broken heart

  1. Jess, You continue to inspire me. Depth. Great writing. Kick ass tunes! I just cannot resist music. I never would have made it this far in life without music and my guitars. I love Killswitch. Heck I love a lot of music. It absolutely has been an integral part of my creative life from early childhood to now, especially when I am drawing or need to tune my mind to writing. If I am not listening to it I am jamming on my guitars. And yeah this girl can shred.
