      Great song by “Staind” by the way, “It’s Been A While” I believe they actually just started going back on tour, anyway I’ll drop the lyrics below:

      It’s been awhile
      Since I couldn’t
      Hold my head up high
      And it’s been awhile
      Since I first saw you
      And it’s been awhile
      Since I could stand
      On my own two feet again
      And it’s been awhile
      Since I could call you
      And all the things I can’t remember
      As fucked up as it all may seem
      The consequences that are rendered
      I stretch myself beyond my means
      And it’s been awhile
      Since I could say
      That I wasn’t addicted
      It’s been awhile
      Since I could say
      I loved myself as well
      And it’s been awhile
      Since I’ve gone and
      Fucked things up
      Just like I always do
      And it’s been awhile
      But all that shit
      Seems to disappear
      When I’m with you
      And everything I can remember
      As fucked up as it all may seem
      The consequences that I’ve rendered
      Have gone and fucked things up again
      Why must I feel this way?
      Just make this go away
      Just one more peaceful day
      It’s been awhile
      Since I couldn’t
      Look at myself straight
      And it’s been awhile
      Since I said, “I’m sorry”
      And it’s been awhile
      Since I’ve seen the way
      The candles light your face
      And it’s been awhile
      But I can still remember
      Just the way you taste
      And everything I can remember
      As fucked up
      As it all may seem to be
      I know it’s me
      I cannot blame this on my father
      He did the best he could for me
      It’s been awhile
      Since I couldn’t
      Hold my head up high
      And it’s been awhile
      Since I said, “I’m sorry”

      Here’s the link to the music video on YT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=araU0fZj6oQ

      I like to give this song a listen when I’m feeling alright, because it really has been a while since last I’ve really f*cked things up in my life. It serves as a reminder to me, to make sure I keep on top of my stuff, gives me a little taste of what things used to be like. Just enough however that it doesnt send me into a dark place for the rest of the day. As I’ve mentioned many times before, music has such an interesting impact on the human brain. If you want to learn a little more about how music can be a wonderful tool in your journey through life, check out my earlier blog post on it -> here <-
