When Everything is a Reminder.

Posted Jan 11 2009 4:47pm
Ya ever notice that certain things carry reminders wherever you go? I know that obviously I am completely saturated with my Dad's passing right now, especially considering we are just days away from flying to Roswell to bury him...but this darn song keeps making me teary eyed, and it's everywhere on the radio right now. I am not exactly a fan of the band who sings it (Linkin Park), but the lyrics somehow hit home for me...from the standpoint of someone with Lewy Body, and from the caregiver's standpoint as well. I have no idea if I'm allowed to reprint these, but until told otherwise, here goes (I've shortened it a bit and taken out the repeating choruses)...and I hope they're all correct:

"Leave Out All The Rest" by Linkin Park

I dreamed I was missing, you were so scared
But no one would listen, 'cause no one else cared.
After my dreaming, I woke with this fear
What am I leaving, when I'm done here?
So if you're asking me, I want you to know
When my time comes, forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
Don't resent me, and when you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory, leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest
Don't be afraid
I've taken my beating, I've shared what I've made
I'm strong on the surface, not all the way through
I've never been perfect, but neither have you
So if you're asking me, I want you to know
When my time comes, forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
Don't resent me, and when you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory, leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest
Forgetting all the hurt inside you've learned to hide so well
Pretending someone else can come and save me from myself
I can't be who you are
I can't be who you are
