10 Song Lyrics That Are So Relatable

10 Song Lyrics That Are So Relatable

For every favorite song, there's a secret story behind why.

Music is an escape, a mood changer, a party enhancer, and sometimes it’s the only thing keeping yourself sane for the week. Some days we just need the music, but other days we listen for the lyrics. These 10 lyrics become more and more accurate as adulthood becomes your life.

1. “A drop in the ocean, a change in the weather, I was praying that you and me might end up together.”

We all know what it’s like to pray for a person who treats us with respect and then when you finally have that, these lyrics perfectly say what we’re all thinking.

2. “What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger.”

Life happens and sometimes it hits us a little harder than we are expecting. From bad breakups to super close family members dying, sometimes we feel like we’re dying too, but it’s a good reminder that struggles only teach us to be stronger.

3. “You lit me up, you made me feel as though I was enough.”

When that one person comes around who makes you feel like you are the one they have been searching for their whole life; that right there is the greatest feeling in the world.

4. “Gave you all I had and you tossed it in the trash”

Sometimes we put in more effort toward people and our relationships and they just cut us out of their lives because they didn’t care about us in the first place.

5. “You distract me, but I’m distracted without you.”

I know everybody thinks of one person when reading this.

6. “Well life is short and love is rare, and we all deserve to be happy while we here.”

I firmly believe the lyrics speak for themselves on this one.

7. “The years go by and time just seems to fly, but the memories remain.”

Once you become an adult life flies quicker than you realize. Live in the moment and be grateful for everything life gives you.

8. “When you’re standing in the moment, every life has a soundtrack.”

If your life had a soundtrack, what songs would be on it?

9. “What I thought was going to be the death of me was my saving grace.”

Life is unpredictable and sometimes what we don’t want is actually just what we need to get us where we are supposed to be.

10. “If the whole world was watching, I’d still dance with you. Drive high ways and by ways to be there with you.”

I know a lot of these are love lyrics songs, but honestly, everybody has a ride or die, even if it’s your mom.

9 Reasons You're Still In Love With Tim Riggins In 2019

Clear eyes. Full hearts.

If you're a Friday Night Lights fan, you know very well who Tim Riggins is. And if you've never seen the show, he's basically just the bad boy football star and sensitive hottie of your dreams, all wrapped into one heart-throbbing package. If you haven't already fallen under the Tim Riggins spell, you're about to...

1. He's the star running back of the Dillon Panthers.

Basically every girl who has walked this earth has fantasized about having that cliche football relationship. No shame. #33 on the field, #1 in my heart.

2. He's actually really sensitive.

Tim Riggins may seem hard and dysfunctional on the outside, but he's really just a big softie. He's no JD McCoy, who grew up lavishly and extremely fortunate; Tim had a rough upbringing. He and his brother, Billy, had to work hard all by themselves just to stay above water, which is most likely what keeps him so grounded and humbled.

3. He loves kids.

Tim didn't even think twice about taking his neighbor under his wing when he moved in next door. And for some reason, there's just somethin' about cute boys holding babies that makes us girls swoon.

4. He's genuine and honest.

Sure, maybe he took advantage of his football-star status and slept with most of the rally girls, but once he fell in love with Lyla we saw his compassionate side. (You probably envied Lyla and maybe even hated her for a while because of it...I know I did.)

5. He knows how to have a good time.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

6. He's a family man.

Tim took the blame for his brother's crime and went to prison for it...if that's not loyalty then I don't know what is.

7. He's affectionate.

If you either hate Lyla or you want to be Lyla or a combination of the both, you are not alone.

8. He's protective.

Probably the only time you've ever wanted to be in a tornado was when you watched the episode where he shielded Julie from flying debris.

9. He's beautiful.

You're welcome for blessing you with this GIF.

May you all find your own Tim Riggins. Amen.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
