Yesterday, after posting Day 3, I checked out what Day 4 was going to be about. As soon as I found out that it was about a song that made me feel sad, I knew what song I’d be posting. I learned about it over a year ago when Starlight posted a video of it on his Facebook and told me about the movie Shortbus.
This song is a theme from that movie. It is quite gloomy and depressing, but not in a sense that you’ll breakdown and want to die. Definitely not. For me, it’s more of a song that makes us analyze our lives and ourselves.
It’s originally sang and written by Scott Matthew, but Justin Bond also has a version of his own. I’ll be posting both videos here.
Ok, so here it is…
Day 4: A Song That Makes You Sad — In The End (Scott Matthew)
Justin Bond’s version from the movie Shortbus
“we all bear the scars
yeah, we all feign a laugh
we all cry in the dark
get cut off before we start
and as your first act begins
you realise they’re all waiting
for a fall, for a flaw, for the end
and there’s a past stained with tears
could you talk to quiet my fears
could you pull me aside
just to acknowledge that i’ve tried
as your last breath begins
contently take it in
cause we all get it in
and as your last breath begins
you find your demon’s your best friend
and we all get it in
