I feel like someone just told me Santa Clause isn’t real.
Things are looking up, oh finally. I thought I’d never see the day you’d smile at me. We always pull through oh when we try. I’m always wrong but you’re never right! You’re never right!
This made me cry.
I have loved this band and what I thought it represented for the past five years. I am now confused and saddened to see it all play out like this. I know that this is a rock-n-roll tale that has been told for centuries and will continue to happen for years to come…
but either way as a fan… it just sucks.
A fan who has purchased every album, gone to shows, promoted them to friend and family and memorized every lyric that has ever found meaning in her life.
Secretly I have always wanted to sing in a band… (okay not that big of a secret if you know me - and know that I fucking love to sing and will play rock band at the drop of a hat) and I have always admired how Paramore always seemed to love to perform and write together.
Just goes to show you how much can be hidden from fans and the struggles happening behind the scenes.
I also know there are three sides to every story… your side, my side and the truth. I guess I will never know the whole truth. I don’t want there to be a strange taste in my mouth now when sing along to When It Rains or Here We Go Again. It just sucks.
I think everyone at one point or another loves a certain band. For my parents it might have been The Beatles or Dire Straights, for me it was Paramore. I wish we could all (as fans) sit in a room with them and hear the truth. I realize that will never happen… and just like fans before me I have to accept what has happened and trust that it is what is best for all of them.
I have a dear friend in the music industry and hope this sort of thing will never happen to that band…. but I know in some way one day it probably will.
Anyway, I am just wicked bumed and wish I could fix it.
I wanna be Hayley Williams’ protege like Bieber is for Usher — how can I make that happen? Need someone named bicycle to set that up.
When you are singing along to a song you have sung a million times — and hits you what they are singing about.
Just happened to me.
I am going away for a while
But I’ll be back, don’t try and follow me
'Cause I'll return as soon as possible
See I’m trying to find my place
But it might not be here where I feel safe
We all learn to make mistakes
From them, from them
With no direction
We’ll run from them, from them
With no conviction
'Cause I'm just one of those ghosts
Don’t need no roads
In fact they follow me
And we just go in circles
Well Now I’m told that this is life
And pain is just a simple compromise
So we can get what we want out of it
Would someone care to classify,
Of broken hearts and twisted minds
So I can find someone to rely on
To them, to them
Full speed ahead
Oh you are not useless
We are just
The ones we trusted the most
Pushed us far away
And there’s no one road
We should not be the same
But I’m just a ghost
And still they echo me
They echo me in circlessuch a beautiful song…. nice work Ms. Williams
the same tricks that, that once fooled me they won’t get you anywhere I’m not the same kid from your memory well, now I can fend for myself
