Hollow Years ·· Dream Theater

“Once the stone
you’re crawling under
is lifted off your shoulders.
Once the cloud that’s raining
Over your head disappears
The noise that you’ll hear
Is the crashing down of hollow years”

Chorus of the song Hollow Years by Dream Theater.
Written by John Petrucci.
Words full of hope, optimism, victory, happiness, stregth.
Words that helped me a lot and still help me whenever I’m not feeling alright.

Everytime I listen to the song or think about the lyrics I have the image in my head: you’re crawling under a stone and then you just get rid of it. Or there’s a cloud that’s raining only above you – just like in the cartoons, a black cloud following you – and then it goes away and it stops raining. Those are two great examples of victory, of how you manage to beat what is hurting you. And that’s when you hear the crashing down of hollow years.

Love that song!
Love that chorus!
Love that words!

Yet living intensely as you do means you'll hardly ever experience hollow years! I guess it all depends on the lens you look at it.
By the way, I LOVE the header pic of your blog! Good job!

That song was dedicated to me by someone who's been a part of my life for a long time but didn't do much to continue to be.

So I relate it to what he didn't do to stay by my side.
