the black keys

I am in love with a song called Black Keys. It means a lot to me, more than anybody would ever know. It's not about boys. It's not about girls. It's not even about a relationship. It's giving a meaning of life. I'm not going to tell you who sings it/wrote it because that's not what matters. (I bet you already know, though).

"She hates the sun, cause it proves she's not alone and the world doesn't revolve around her soul:" This line was confusing at first. All it took was for me to read in between the lines for the understanding of it. There's always going to be a part in your life where you feel like you're everything. Where you are alone. Where you think of something and you don't want to be proven wrong. I think this line symbolizes that part of life.

"The walls are closing in. Don't let them get inside of your head:" I am sure that you have experienced this before. When you just wanna run away and ignore everything they say. When you feel like a tiny person sometimes. Like nobody cares. Like the walls of your bedroom are closing in.

"The Black Keys never looked so beautiful. And a perfect rainbow never seemed so dull. And the lights out never had this brighter glow and the Black Keys were showing me a world I never knew:" There's going to be times where things you thought were dull and gray and boring before.. will become your everything. While this happens, the things that are beautiful like rainbows and sunshine will appear to be dull and boring. Sometimes.. you've gotta take chances. Because sometimes, those chances will show you a whole different world.

When I first heard this song, I thought Black Keys was like... car keys or something (he says something about driving in a car). That made sense. Car keys are boring. Don't mean that much. He's telling us that they had never looked so beautiful while a rainbow didn't. But then I found out that Black Keys were actually the keys that are black (duh) on a piano. I found out that when he said when he first wrote this song, he only used the black keys on his piano.

This boy keeps getting amazing.

"Sometimes a fight is better black and white:" True. Sometimes color isn't everything. In fact, I love taking black and white photographs of pretty much anything.. Because when you look at the picture, you don't look at the color of the person's eyes....or the color of the clothes their wearing....or the color of their hair. You just look at this picture. And that's the beauty of life.

This song has inspired me. Ever since I first heard it... it touched my heart. This boy proves to me that writing doesn't only express love and broken hearts (c'mon, you gotta admit... most songs out there are about that sorta stuff). It can express anything. I love a song even more when I understand the meaning of the words.

That's why when I write songs.... I don't always write about boys. Love. Broken hearts. I write about... life. I write about things that I go through, and most of the things I do go through isn't always boys boys boys.

This person inspires me so much. I never thought I could be this inspired. (Because of him, you got this blog and most blogs on here. Because of him, I write songs that have meanings.) I've always wondered and dreamed of writing a song with this boy. Okay, okay... I'll admit. Every other girl has dreamed that too.

But... not every other girl is passionate about writing like I am. Some are just like me. So they know how I'm feeling. This boy writes words that have the ability to touch my heart....inspire me.

If we ever do write a song together... I'll be sure not to write about being broken hearted. About love between two people attracted to each other. I just.... I want to write a song about life. Something that every other person will eventually relate to. Something that will touch every person like this song has touched me.

Who knows, maybe we'll write a song called White Keys. ;)

So, that's all for today. Remember that you are beautiful. You define the word beautiful. Words can't and will never bring you down because I know that you're strong. Take chances because sometimes they help you turn into the right direction.

You can't win until you try.
You can't touch the sky until you fly.
You can't finish until you start.
You can't love until you have a heart.

I came up with that a few months back. It means... taking a chance. Of course, you'll take chances that you shouldn't have taken. But taking them has taught you a whole new thing. Something new. Don't let the fear of that keep you from taking the chances.

I love you.
