No Music No Strength

This is how I look without music:


And this is how I look with music:


Somehow I came to a point where I do not have any energy if I don't listen to music in the morning. A lot of people think that listening music will make them be inefficient. But to me is the opposite. No Music No Strength!

I do not have any songs in my iPhone. So I started with a familiar song in youtube, then I randomly clicked on the suggested videos and I found some very very nice songs from some bands.

One of them and now my favorite is Passenger! I like their lyrics, their melody and the way they record their music. 

"Let Her Go" caught my love by its lyrics and "A Thousand Matches" caught my attention with the way it is recorded but its lyrics is beautiful as well.

Hear it for yourself!

Passenger - Let her go

Well you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missin' home
Only know you love her when you let her go
And you let her go

Staring at the bottom of your glass
Hoping one day you'll make a dream last
But dreams come slow and they go so fast

You see her when you close your eyes
Maybe one day you'll understand why
Everything you touch surely dies

But you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missin' home
Only know you love her when you let her go

Staring at the ceiling in the dark
Same old empty feeling in your heart
'Cause love comes slow and it goes so fast

Well you see her when you fall asleep
But never to touch and never to keep
'Cause you loved her too much
And you dived too deep

Well you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missin' home
Only know you love her when you let her go

And you let her go
And you let her go
Well you let her go

'Cause you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missin' home
Only know you love her when you let her go

'Cause you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missin' home
Only know you love her when you let her go

And you let her go


Passenger - A thousand matches

Lying on the mattress ‘cause my friend’s crazy sister took my bed away,
Sleeping, she looked like an actress, a theory I didn’t practice, I said “There’s gotta be a better way”.
She said: “You light a thousand matches when you finally set fire when you run away,
So why’d you go and do it when you knew that you would go and I would stay.
I hit the wall in frustration the conversation had been circling for days,
She said: “Don’t take it out on him, for the wall has always been supportive in the best of ways.
We’re laughing and crying like mad men dying in the snow,
For just one second it was funny that she would have to stay and I would go.

She said” I love you know I love you so; when you love someone well you’ve got to let them know.”
And I said:” Nothing’s changed I love you the same, but when you love someone sometimes you gotta let them go.”

She handed me a stone in the perfect shape of a heart,
She said:” I’m gonna take this home for I know you’ll only lose it somewhere after dark,
‘Cause some faces so terribly seem to lose everything you own.”
She didn’t mean it how it sounded, what she meant was she would stay and I would go
I said:” I love you know I love you so; when you love someone well you’ve got to let them know
She said: “Nothing’s changed I love you the same, but when you love someone sometimes you gotta let them go”

Sometimes you tear it all apart, to see the wood from the trees.
Sometimes you break your own heart to set yourself free.
I walked her to the station, hesitation in our movements and our tongue,
Words finally left after realized how uncomfortable they’ve grown.
What you want and what you need, well they seldomly succeed to grow.
We reluctantly agreed that when you love someone, you’ve got to let them go.
