3 Day Lyrical Challenge: Day 3

Welcome back to Day 3 of my 3 Day Lyrical Challenge!

I was tagged in this challenge by three of my all-time favorite bloggers: Thrice Read, Discerning Couch Potato, and Whit Reads Lit. Thank you my lovely friends!


The Rules

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Share one of your favorite songs/lyrics one at a time for three days.
  • Nominate three other bloggers each day.

 

I decided to break this challenge up into three different types of songs: 

  1. Day One: Love song lyrics
  2. Day Two: Inspirational song lyrics
  3. Day Three: Breakup song lyrics

 

Whether you like Fall Out Boy or not, it’s hard to deny that they have some of the best lyrics of all time – particularly their break up songs.

This one happens to be one of the most brutal breakup songs I’ve ever heard, absolutely filled with some of the most satisfying insults LOL!

I present to you…

My Heart is the Worst Kind of Weapon by Fall Out Boy

Spent most of last night
Dragging this lake
For the corpses of all my past mistakes
Sell me out, the jokes on you
We are salt and you are the wound
Empty another bottle
And let me tear you to pieces
This is me wishing you into the worst situations
I’m the kind of kid that can’t let anything go
But you wouldn’t know a good thing
If it came up and slit your throat
Whoa, whoa
Ooh
Whoa, whoa
Your remorse hasn’t fallen on deaf ears
Rather ones that just don’t care
‘Cause I know that you’re in between arms somewhere
Next to heartbeats
Where you shouldn’t dare sleep
Now, I’ll teach you a lesson
For keeping secrets from me
Take your taste, back
Peel back your skin
And try to forget how it feels inside
You should try saying “No once in a while”
“Oh once in a while”
Take your taste, back
Peel back your skin
And try to forget how it feels inside
You should try saying “No once in a while”
“Oh once in a while”
And did you hear the news?
I could dissect you
And gut you on this stage
Not as eloquent as I may have imagined
But it will get the job done
And you’re done
Every line is plotted and designed to leave you
Standing on your bedroom window’s ledge
And everyone else
That it hits, that it gets to
Is nothing more than collateral damage
Take your taste, back
Peel back your skin
And try to forget how it feels inside
You should try saying “No once in a while”
“Oh once in a while”
Take your taste, back
Peel back your skin
And try to forget how it feels inside
You should try saying “No once in a while”
“Oh once in a while”

Tag, You’re It!

YOU! If you’d like to do this challenge, either the way I’ve done it or your own way, please do!
