Songs In My Heart

Two songs have been ruling my mind these past few days. They both describe the current situation in my life. They describe it in two different ways, one is talking about the conflict of feelings going on and how you must deal with them without hurting the person on the receiving end. The other talks more about how those feelings have changed the person you are and how that change restricts what you can do to return to who you were and to get back that someone these feelings are for. To get these two songs out here at once I'm going to post each of them, alternating the lyrics between the two songs. Copeland's No One Really Wins in blue and Coheed & Cambria's The End Complete IV: The Road And The Damned in red:


Welcome love, I have made a place for you here
And I know every word they say
I know how they want to make you change

I believed in the world right in front of me,
But now, along these empty streets
Where this curse holds these memories of a man,
You know he's lost.

Change if you want, but don't you go and change for me
I can love you as you are
I didn't mean to make you want to leave

No time to think about it. No room to breathe.

It's a fight between my heart and mind
No one really wins this time
No one really wins this time

If I had a way back, I'd ride through the dark and the dawn
(But please don't wait for me)
Because the man you love don't live anymore.
I can't go home again.

If you don't find a love you want
If I have acted ungracefully
I don't want to see you go
I never meant to make you want to leave

Tonight you'll sleep.
No fear what might become of me, my dear.
Within these end of days
Where this longing turns
this man to prey on a love that yearns to die.

Go if you want
Make your way straight to the door
I hope that you look back before you go
Cause grace looks back before it starts to leave

No time to live and doubt it, girl,
I'm worth the second chance. (What have I done)
No time to think about it, no room to breathe.

It's a fight between my heart and mind
No one really wins this time
No one really wins this time
In the endless fight of grace and pride
I don't wanna win this time
I don't wanna win this time

If I had a way back, I'd ride through the dark and the dawn
(Oh please don't wait for me)
Because the man you love don't live anymore.
I can't go home again.

Change if you want, but don't you go and change for me
I will love you as you are
I didn't mean to make you want to leave

I believed in the world once in front of me, well, now that's gone.
If I had a way back, I'd ride through the dark and the dawn
(But please don't wait for me)
Because the man you love don't live anymore.
I can't go home again. x2

It's a fight between my heart and mind
Bye, goodbye.
No one really wins this time
Bye, goodbye.
No one really wins this time
Bye, goodbye.
In the endless fight of grace and pride
Bye, goodbye.
I don't want to win this time
Bye, goodbye.
I don't want to win this time
Bye, goodbye.
In the endless fight of grace and pride
Bye, goodbye.
I don't want to win this time
Bye, goodbye.
I don't want to win this time
Bye, my dear.

You should definitely go listen to both of these songs. Even if they don't speak to you like they do to me, they are great songs to hear.
