Asking Alexandria - “Someone, Somewhere”
this is post #2000, and since i do what i want, i’m going to make a dedication list for this post.
It was you that told me I could do this
You put the music in my heart
And how you sang with the band in Memphis
It’s hard just to be strong not knowing if I’ve done you proud
I like to imagine you smile when you hear my songs
this verse goes out to my cousin- she’s a tattoo artist, and like me, has been pretty much shunned by our extended family. she’s followed her dreams and is doing what she loves and is having the time of her life. she’s one of my biggest inspirations.
A letter home, and I know we don’t speak much
And we both know I’m not keen to, but I think there’s things I’ve left unsaid
I’m okay, don’t worry
I wish I’d been a better kid
I’m trying to slow down
I’m sorry for letting you down
this verse is for my mother- she doesn’t agree with the way i live my life, but i know how much she cares about me. i feel bad that i can’t live the life she wants me to, but i need to do my own thing. i know eventually she will see how happy i am living by my terms, and will be happy for me as well, but until then, i hate myself a little bit for making her worry about me so much. i love her more than anything.
You know it’s just rock and roll
I know you’re by my side through it all
My terror twin and I;
Let’s take over the world.
this verse goes out to my bandmate/best mate, Sonny- terror twins for life. we say and do what we want, and we don’t give a fuck if it offends you. i know he’s got my back and i’ve got his. no matter what, we will see the fucking world; we will live our dream.
“Even though I’m on my own, I know I’m not alone
Because I know there’s someone, somewhere praying that I make it home
So here’s one from the heart, my life right from the start
I need a home sweet home to call my own”
