"For the First Time" by The Script

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 1, 2012, 4:33 PM
Featuring artwork from across dA to illustrate a great song by The Script, "For the First Time"

:party: I thought I'd celebrate my "coming back into activity on dA" with a song. :)

I recommend clicking here to listen to the song as you view.  There's a little dialog at the beginning, so just wait for the song to begin.  Enjoy.

Hard times we are living by iScreamLav Hard Times by AirInMotion Hard TimesHard times are coming
I can feel it
I’m holding on tightly
I still can’t believe it
I will be strong no matter what goes wrong
I promise to stand by you through it all
Remember we have been through worst
Yet we came through just fine
Hard times are coming I can feel it
I just don’t know why
Things aren’t always as they should be
I can’t blame anyone for that
All I  can do is hope for the best
I have to keep going on
I’m going to keep my head high
As a mother and a wife
I need to be strong, stronger then anyone
I will be there to wipe away the tears
Through the hard times and all the fears
Nothing will knock me down
Nothing can break me
Although hard times are coming
I will stand my ground
Hard times are coming
I can feel it in my heart
As long as we’re together
There is nothing we can’t endure
Remember our love will push us through
Nothing can or will ever tear us apart
Hard times are coming but I’m not scared
As long as I’m w

Sit talking up all night,
Moonlight Sunflower by Dani-the-Naiad romantic night by joshushund Just Love"Why do you love me?"
I'd asked this question countless of times before, but never seemed to understand the answer.  The answer was always different, yet it was never solid and never was reason enough for me.  Things like, "because you're beautiful" or "because you're a great mother" or the infamous "because you love me."  They all seemed obvious.  Still not good enough reasons to me.  The reason for my disbelief was given in his answer this time.
"I don't know."
At first I didn't know how to respond.  I could have been offended.  But I wasn't.  Then he continued.
"Probably for the same reason you love me."
Suddenly it made sense why I kept asking the question.  I was feigning humility, wishing to know the answer not just to understand him, but to understand myself.  I needed ideas to come up with my own reasons for loving him.
"I don't know either."
We sat in silence then,

We're smiling but we're close to tears,
The Story of My Broken Heart
As I lay my ear upon his chest I hear his heart beating, thump thump.  I feel like I can hear his love beating for me beneath his ribcage.  Then I feel his lungs inhale, then shudder with an exhale.  Something isn't right, that breath was too shuddery.  I look up, and I look into his eyes.  I see a tear in the corner.  It runs down the bridge of his nose, I wipe it away with my thumb, and look deep in his eyes, seeing pain behind his eyes.
"What's wrong baby?" I ask him, a questioningly look in my eyes.
He shakes his head, looking away from me.
"Is it me?" I ask him, my voice cracking at the thought of the possibility.
"I just don't feel it anymore" he whispers as his voice cracks and tears spill from his eyes as he can't look me in mine.  I kiss away the first few tears, tasting the saltiness of them.
"I love you." I cry and lay my head on his chest again, and sob into his shirt.
"I love you too." He whispers back.

Man these times are hard,
The key of hard times... by iNeOn4e Hard Times by chadrobin Hard TimesMy father works alone,
crunching numbers in an empty room,
bet he feels like everything is doomed.
He must feel like he's on his own.
Working 20 years and going strong,
while everything is going wrong.
Is this the way he will live
for another 20 years? No,
it's not. He'll find a way
to overcome these fears, whoa,
believe in him.
My mother does her best
to juggle all she has to do,
with all the stress she's going through.
Sometimes, she needs a rest.
She doesn't get to sleep for long,
and everything is going wrong.
Is this the way she will live
for another 20 years? No,
it's not. She'll find a way
to overcome these fears, whoa,
believe in her.
People across the globe,
they fought but they were not prepared,
and they wonder if a god's out there.
People without a home,
silence is their marching song
while everything is going wrong.
And it's not that we just don't care,
sometimes all we can do is stare,
even when we know that it's just not fair.
It's not fair. Just not fair.
Not fair.

When I First Met YouWhen I first met you
I didn't know what to say
But when I got to know you
Everything went okay
At first we were confused
but later we found out
that we both were abused
when we really needed out
I told you how I felt
and you did the same
But look at us now
with our hearts now in tame
I wish I had told you
but I kept it a secret
That I really do love you
And you won't be a regret
