Daughtry – Home

Well, it’s Friday, and I’m going home for the weekend, and it’s been two weeks since last time, so I really miss it.
That’s why today’s song is “Home” by Daughtry. The song was released on the self titled album (Daughtry) in 2006.
The wonderful lyrics you will find here, and the song itself is right below:

 

 

What really strikes me is the soar voice of Chris Daughtry. I can feel him longing to get home, and right now, so do I.
The music itself is sort of simple, but for this song I like it. There is a slow verse, and a build-up to the powerful refrain, and another verse and refrain, and a bridge and final refrain. (Listing the obvious things, I know, but hey, report me if you find it offensive! I just want to go home!)
The lyrics are the best thing about the whole song, I think, because that’s exactly how I feel. The entire refrain is just “my thoughts exactly!” The rest is a mix of everything. Love the bridge too, though. Both musically and lyrically. “Be careful what you wish for, cause you just might get it all, and then some you don’t want”.  Wonderful. A lesson in life, if you would.
Well, now I’m soon off to the bus stop, cause I’m going home.

 

“I’m not running from, no I think you got me all wrong
I don’t regret this life I chose for me
But these faces and these places are getting old, so I’m going home” 

 

Daughtry – Over You

Oh well, back again, and it feels great, except from the fact that I’ve caught a cold, sitting here, with a stuffed nose and fever/chills, in a blanket.
Before I move on, I will remind you all to look at my last post, because there was some pretty important info for you all to read.
So, I’ve chosen a slow song for today, or, eh, a relatively slow song, if you look away from the refrain. I’ll get back to that.
Anyway, today’s song is Over You by Daughtry. It was published on the self-titled album “Daughtry” in 2006.  Lyrics here, music video below:

As I said, relatively slow, in the beginning. It picks up a little more speed, along with drums and a little rougher guitars in the refrain. Love Chris Daughtry’s, the vocalist’s, voice. He was in American Idol in 2006, came at fourth place. He didn’t win, and that’s a shame, because he’s excellent! I totally relax when I listen to his songs, because of his pretty voice. This song has the best lyrics he’s ever made, if you ask me! Too bad that they don’t count for me, these days.
Love that it starts out slow, and builds up. The end is really good. The last words is so well put into the song. If it’s possible, I would say that the song is well built. Finishing off for now, I’m quoting the whole (really long) refrain, as I feel it’s stupid to quote the whole song, even if it’s so beautiful:

“Well, I never saw it coming. I should’ve started running a long, long time ago. 
And I never thought I’d doubt you, I’m better off without you, more than you, more than you know. I’m slowly getting closure. I guess it’s really over. I’m finally getting better. 
And now I’m picking up the pieces, I’m spending all of these years putting my heart back together. ‘Cause the day I thought I’d never get through, I got over you. “
