So long and goodnight

(Yep, another post about music and bands)

My Chemical Romance, one of my favorite bands, announced their break-up this weekend. I'm a bit sad, to be honest, but they need to do what's right for them and I get that. Still sucks. Mostly knowing that I'll never get to see them play live again. Sure, they might do a comeback someday, but I highly doubt it.

I started listening to them when I was like 14 or 15 and I just love them to pieces. They're all amazing musicians, but I love the most is Gerard Way's ability to sing like he's singing for you and you alone. The way he sings makes you feel like you're not alone. And honestly, that helped me a lot when I was going through my darkest days of the great depression.

So for the past two days I've been listening to MCR and feeling a bit sad. I know it's "just a band", but when a band and certain songs are a part of your life for nearly 10 years, it's no longer "just" a band.

I tend to get emotionally involved with songs. They'll remind me of certain events and certain feelings and sometimes certain people. Or sometimes the lyrics just hit me hard.

All good things must come to an end, I guess. Nothing lasts forever and all that crap. It's okay, guys, I still love you.

“Be yourself, don't take anyone's shit, and never let them take you alive.”
