I don't know probably something emo. But I hate emo culture. But considering any song that describes my life is emo there is no alternative. Which makes me feel emo. But I hate anything emo. Therefore I'm stuck in a cycle of emo. Somebody help me...

Some years ago, i used to listen a lot of emo/sad songs(for example : Crowded House -dont dream it's over; Linkin Park-Crawling ; Damien Rice- 9 crimes; Eurythmics-i save the world today; Cyndi Lauper- The world is stone ...). So, If my life was a song, it would have been a song about someone with a great potential but who made some bad choices, deceiving people and himself, resulting in an unexpected turn in is life. Stephen Crane's poeme "There was a man who lived a life of fire" could describe what it was about.

One day, i accepted my life wasnt that great and i accepted my responsabilities in some parts of this failure, because i didnt make the best decisions when i had to. Since then, i refused to let sadness to take the wheel of my future. I started to listen a lot of empowering and happy songs because nostalgia and melancholia were keeping me in an uncessary mourning state about things i hadnt accomplished yet.

I choosed to be the dreamer-optimistic-fighter type of guy, i refused to be stucked in the shadow of the man i could have been despite all the struggles waiting for me. So everyday i fight the fight for a better future because i not only hope, but i know i'll be fine. I stand up, no matter what. And guess what ? the more i fight, the more i'm shaping my life like the dream i wanted it to be. Of course i'm late of 4 or 5 years about the schedule i had when i were younger, but it doesnt matter to me anymore to be "on time". I dont care if i dont completely succeed to compensate the bad choices i've made. But at least i try. I believe only the final happiness matter to me.

That's why the song my life would be is "Never Forget" from british band Take That. I dont care if Take That is a boy band, lol. Their words speak to me. I want it to be the song which would be played the day i die.

TAKE THAT LYRICS

"Never Forget"

Been on this path of life for so long

Feel I've walked a thousand miles

Sometimes strolled hand in hand with love

Everybody's been there

With danger on my mind I would stay on the line of hope

I knew I could make it

Once I knew the boundaries I looked into the clouds and saw

My face in the moonlight

Just then I realised what a fool I could be

Just cause I look so high I don't have to see me

Finding a paradise wasn't easy but still

There's a road going down the other side of this hill

Never forget where you've come here from

Never pretend that it's all real

Someday soon this will be someone else's dream

Been safe from the arms of disappointment for so long

Feel each day we've come too far

Yet each day seems to make much more

Sure is good to be here

I understand the meaning of "I can't explain this feeling"

Now it feels so unreal

At night I see the hand that reminds me of the stand I make

The fact of reality

Never forget where you've come here from

Never pretend that it's all real

Someday soon this will be someone else's dream

We've come so far and we've reached so high

And we've looked each day and night in the eye

And we're still so young and we hope for more

But remember this

We're not invincible, we're not invincible - No

We're only people, we're only people

Hey we're not invincible, we're not invincible

So again I'll tell you

Never forget where you've come here from

Never pretend that it's all real

Someday soon this will be someone else's dream

This song has everything, it's tragic and warm at the same time. It wants you, you submerge and before you know it, you're crying to it for the 7th time. Like the story, the cycle continues.

I've always thought Warren Zevon's Splendid Isolation captured me well.

If my life was a song right now, it would be this one:

I made a "post a theme song for the person above you" thread ;_; I get no love ;_______;

If my life were a song, it'd be...

Beautiful, sad, redeeming, orchestral, with a metal guitar, and ending in happiness.
