reSLience… a.k.a. resilience

it's what lies within that really matters

The best part about Matchbox 20 is they write upbeat tunes to sad lyrics. Rob Thomas told the audience at the live show in March in Phoenix, if you are mad, or upset, why do you need the music to do that to you too? Let the lyrics say what you want to – but let the music uplift you.

Perfect for today!

Everywhere someone’s getting over
Everybody cries
And sometimes you can still lose
even if you really try
Talking about the dream
Like the dream is over
Talk like that
Won’t get you nowhere
Everybody’s trusting in the heart
Like the heart don’t lie

And that’s all that I need, yeah
Someone else to cling to, yeah
Someone I can lean on
Until I don’t need to
Just stay all through the night
In the morning let me down
Cause that’s all that I need right now

Everywhere someone’s getting over
Everybodys life is someone
People still use other people
with a crooked smile
And all around the world
there’s a sinking feeling
Out there right now someone’s feeling
Down on themselves and don’t know why
Every night

And that’s all that I need, yeah
Someone else to cling to, yeah
Someone I can lean on
Until I don’t need to
Just stay all through the night, yeah
In the morning let me down
Cause that’s all that I need right now

And life ain’t no beauty show
We don’t know where tomorrow ends
And when we’re sad
It’s kind of a drag

Just stay all through the night
In the morning let me down
Yeah, cause that’s all that I need
Yeah, that’s all that I need
Yeah, that’s all that I need
That’s all that I need right now
Right now
