This New Day

Sometimes it's just so hard to drop in a good post...I tried blogging last night but somehow I lost my mojo between an overseas call from a close friend and McDreamy distracting me on TV.

Music on the radio these days is less than inspiring - everyone is either trying to emulate silly American bands like Good Charlotte or A Simple Plan or the British indie bands but without much originality or songwriting talent...but under all this crappy music, you can usually find something good. I'm currently listening to Embrace's new album, This New Day. And yes, although many bands these days echo Coldplay - (here's a trivia nugget: Embrace got some help from Chris Martin on their smash-hit, Gravity), Embrace has certain come into their own. Their songwriting has certainly matured and the songs on this album reflect how the band has grown over the years. And I do love their sound; lush and melodious instead of spare or leaning into the electronic trend. Although it is not as good as 2004's excellent Out of Nothing, the songs on this album certainly reflect my current mood. And none more so than the current single; Natures Law.

I tried to fight the feeling, the feeling took me down,
I struggled and I lost the day you knocked me out,
Now everything’s got meaning and meanings bring me down,
I’m watching as a screening of my life plays out.

Every day I fight these feelings,
For your sake I will hide the real thing,
You can run all your life or mine, I will chase...
You should never fight your feelings,
When your very bones believe them,
You should never fight your feelings,
You have to follow nature’s law.

I’ll live with never knowing, if knowing’s gonna change,
I’ll stop the feeling growing, I will stay away,
Like a broken record stuck before a song,
A million beginnings, none of them the one.

Every day I fight these feelings,
For your sake I will hide the real thing,
You can run all your life or mine, I will chase...
You should never fight your feelings,
When your very bones believe them,
You should never fight your feelings,
You have to follow nature’s law.

I wrote her letters and tried to send them,
In a bottle I placed my hope,
An SOS full of good intentions sinking,
Will you give it to me,
Don’t make me wait,
You build me up, knocked me down,
But I will stand my ground,
And guide this light that I’ve found.

You should never fight your feelings,
When your very bones believe them,
If you let them show, you’ll keep them
I know you're hurt but soon you'll rise again,again,again...

You should never fight your feelings,
When your very bones believe them,
You should never fight your feelings,
You have to follow nature’s law.
