True colors so bright

Illuminates the real you

Life is your canvass

Rock Ballad of the Week: Staind "Tangled Up In You"

You’re my world
The shelter from the rain
You’re the pills
That take away my pain
You’re the light
That helps me find my way
You’re the words
When I have nothing to say

And in this world
Where nothing else is true
Here I am
Still tangled up in you
I’m still tangled up in you
Still tangled up in you

You’re the fire
That warms me when i’m cold
You’re the hand
I have to hold as I grow old
You’re the shore
When I am lost at sea
You’re the only thing
That I like about me

And in this world
Where nothing else is true
Here I am
Still tangled up in you
I’m still tangled up in you

How long has it been
Since this storyline began
And I hope it never ends
And goes like this forever

In this world
Where nothing else is true
Here I am
Still tangled up in you
Tangled up in you
I’m still tangled up in you
Still tangled up in you

Staind (/steɪnd/ STAYND) is an American rock band formed in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1995. The original lineup consisted of lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Aaron Lewis, lead guitarist Mike Mushok, bassist and backing vocalist Johnny April, and drummer Jon Wysocki. The lineup has been stable outside of the 2011 departure of Wysocki, who was replaced by Sal Giancarelli. Staind has recorded seven studio albums: Tormented (1996), Dysfunction (1999), Break the Cycle (2001), 14 Shades of Grey (2003), Chapter V (2005), The Illusion of Progress (2008), and Staind (2011). The band’s activity became more sporadic after their self-titled release, with Lewis pursuing a solo country music career and Mushok subsequently joining the band Saint Asonia, but they have continued to tour on and off in the following years. As of 2016, Lewis has reiterated that the band has not broken up, and will possibly create another album, but that his current focus is on his solo career. As of 2019, the band is on hiatus. Staind has sold over 15 million records worldwide.  Many of their singles have reached high positions on US rock and all-format charts as well, including “It’s Been Awhile“, “Fade“, “Price to Play“, “So Far Away“, and “Right Here“.

#RomanticTuesday: When I'm With You

“They say diamonds are forever. I guess they have never met you.”

It all just falls away

when I think of you

The world totally fades away

when I’m with you

Sentiments fill the air

My heart does not know despair

when I think of you

The whole of life has changed

The circumference of my world

continues to change

When I’m with you

For your light that you share

And the love you give

Thank you
