(I wrote this a couple of weeks ago and didn’t know what I wanted to do with it, so here it is)
I’ve always been someone who likes to feel emotions, feel feelings but only to the point where I can control them. I don’t like to completely lose my shit in the middle of the street and burst into tears, that’t not what I’m talking about. For me, I like to relate to song lyrics and the feelings the artist is trying to make you feel. I guess that’s one thing that attracts me to a song and something I find so amazing about song writing; how someone you’ve never met can write a song you can perfectly relate to. If you follow me on twitter or instagram, you’ll have noticed I post all these lyrics and sometimes I relate, sometimes I don’t but those are the ones that have made me feel something. If you google my captions and put all the songs together you’ll pretty much have a playlist of all the songs I listen to. But I group my playlist in terms of moments as opposed to vibes. So all the songs I’m listening to at the moment are in one playlist, whether they’re upbeat or sad songs they are all grouped together in a playlist that I listen to until I get sick of it. Then I move onto a new playlist. That way, when I go back and listen to a playlist, I can remember that moment in my life. I’m someone that likes to associate music with time, which is why I organise my playlists this way.
B-TTER is the playlist I made for this particular moment, and I’m not going to lie, I got the name idea from Jack Baran but I thought it fit with this group of songs because it could be bitter or better. As in I’m bitter because of the way it happened, better because I’m done with it.
Here are the lyrics I’ve loved and the playlist itself.
I moved on for the better, you moved onto whomever
you got me good like a bad drug
it ain’t right but it’s right now
do you still feel it in your chest the way you did at sixteen?
Maybe I was blind, I was young, I didn’t have a clue
want it when we can’t have it, when we got it we don’t seem to want it
what if i had been a fool and thought I was in love with you
