    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.
