In Honor of Chester Bennington

What is there even to say when another light goes out from this world? This list of some of my favorite Linkin Park songs is a tribute to Chester Bennington, who touched many lives through his music over the years of his life. Thank you for sharing your gifts with us, Chester.

12. Numb

This, of course, is one of the many highly popular songs that come to mind when one thinks of Linkin Park. It was probably the one that captured my attention and turned it over to Linkin Park's music throughout the years.

Favorite Lyrics: Can't you see that you're smothering me / Holding too tightly, afraid to lose control

11. Somewhere I Belong

I believe that this song is widely relatable. Everyone is just looking for the place they fit into the puzzle.

Favorite Lyrics: I wanna heal / I wanna feel like I'm somewhere I belong

10. What I've Done

Favorite Lyrics: I'll face myself / To cross out what I've become

9. New Divide

Favorite Lyrics: As time began to blur / Like a startling sign / That fate had finally found me

8. In Pieces

This song so well describes a relationship that I've been involved in. It just spoke to me in ways that no other song ever could.

Favorite Lyrics: There's truth in your lies / Doubt in your faith / All I've got is what you didn't take

7. Talking to Myself

Favorite Lyrics: All the walls that you keep building / All this time that I spent chasing / All the ways that I keep losing you / The truth is, you turn into someone else / You keep running like the sky is falling

6. Sharp Edges

Favorite Lyrics: Sharp edges have consequences, now / Every scar is a story I can tell

5. Iridescent

Favorite Lyrics: Remember all the sadness and frustration / And let it go. Let it go

4. Heavy

Favorite Lyrics: I know I'm not the center of the universe / But you keep spinning round me just the same

3. Roads Untraveled

Favorite Lyrics: Give up your heart left broken / And let that mistake pass on

2. One More Light

Favorite Lyrics: Who cares if one more light goes out / Well I do

1. Leave Out All the Rest

I used to fall asleep every night listening to this song. It has been my all-time favorite for quite some time now.

Favorite Lyrics: Forgetting all the hurt inside you've learn to hide so well / Pretending someone else can come and save me from myself

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.
