YouTube Tuesday.

I have this friend. She and I are really freaking similar. In our own ways we are going through some of the same shit. I haven’t talked to her in some days, which means she is probably feeling awful and closed off from the rest of the world.

This YTT is for her.

I’m hoping this might put a smile on her face, because, if  she is like me, seeing Trent Reznor and having a song dedicated to her should make her all giddy and smile.

“The Fragile”

She shines
in a world full of ugliness
She matters
when everything is meaningless
She doesn't see her beauty
She tries to get away
it's just that nothing seems worth saving
I can't watch her slip away

I won't let you fall apart

She reads the minds of all the people
as they pass her by
Hoping someone will see
If I could fix myself I'd...but it's too late for me

I won't let you fall apart

We'll find the perfect place to go where we can run and hide
I'll build a wall and we can keep them on the other side
but they keep waiting
and picking
and picking
and picking...

It's something I have to do
I was there too
Before everything else
I was like you

  1. Love the song! Hope your friend is ok.

  2. Very nice of you to think of her at this time. You are a gem!

  3. I like Fraggles...

    Oh, wait.

    I like the lyrics, but what is life if you have to run and hide, and build a wall to keep the world out? I'd rather die in a blaze of glory than alone in the darkness...

  4. good on ya for being a good friend!

    not a big fan of trent...but i am also not the worlds foremost authority on everything...

  5. Good stuff. All the best to your friend.

  6. I love Nails. I used to obsessed with them. But it has been a while. I forgot about that song actually. Thank you for reminding me about how awesome "The Fragile" is.

  7. oh god, thanks boo. that is just what i needed. not just cuz he's so beautiful, but because i love those lyrics. i love the thought of having somewhere safe to go, where no one can reach me and cause me any pain.

    i want to trent to build one for the three of us.

    i love you and i've missed you so much. thank-you :)

  8. Great song, hope your friend is ok. There is something for you, over at my place if you wanna collect it. :)


  9. It's weird how as soon as I started reading, before I even saw the song I knew you were posting it for Kage.
    I follow her blog from reading yours & I totally feel like I know both of you (& Sugarfree Heather) from what you share with us online.
    I wish you girls were in Australia so we could all hang out together - I'm not big on making new friends in real life (so I am even worse online) but I really find I relate to all of you & even though I don't have a direct relationship with you I find myself referencing you in my conversations & calling you "someone I know' rather than just 'a blogger I follow'
    Anyway not really sure where that bit of sharing came from, but please keep sharing your stuff with us because reading your blogs makes my days happier cause it's like I've had a chat with a friend when I've seen what's going on in your world each day (good & bad).

  10. It occurred to me I hadn't replied to comments-shit.

    Maasiyat-She's like me, a soldier. She'll be okay :)

    Barb-I miss you!

    Idaho-I see what you mean, but I look at the song differently. He wants to cocoon her, protect her from the world...

    Stephanie-It's rare I get to step outside and "help" one because I'm always worried about myself, but I wanted to know in my own special way that I am there for her.

    Bruce-Oooh, Trent Reznor holds a special place in my heart. And my pants :)

    Lucy and Sarah-Thanks <3

    Rock Show-That whole double CD is epic!

    Kage-I am glad it made you feel better, if only for a short time. <3

    Lyndylou-Thanks bunches!

    Kinoo-It's true, I am a Kage stalker.

    You should comment more! I mean, not to stroke my ego or anything, but to just...you know...talk. What you said was so awesome, because finding people that you can identify with is the best feeling in the world. I just joined Twitter as Hed_M if you ever feel like talking, okay?

  11. Fuck me jumpin'!! I am sooooo late to this party. Mostly because I was at another party. A bad one. It involved mouth rape. In a dental sort of way. It's cool though, I have a note from my mom. Now I forget what I came here to say. So, I'm just gonna cyber flash everyone and go! Much looooooove!

    And Kinoo - I am packing my bags, collecting Hed and Kage, and we will be on your doorstep shortly. Please, have cocktails ready. I've heard it's a long flight.
