Song Lyric Sunday – The Diary of Jane by Breaking Benjamin

Breaking Benjamin is one of those bands that reminds me of my daughter.  We used to listen to this album when I drove her to school in the mornings.  It didn’t happen every day, but when it did, we usually listened to this album.

I find that when I’m down, I tend to turn to their harder, darker music.  It’s not necessarily soothing, but it finds a way to fill the void, so to speak.

This is one of those songs that makes me think of my depression, especially on a day like today when I’ve been struggling.  I can’t imagine what it’s like to be on the outside looking in on someone who has thoughts that are so far outside the realm of reality.  My hubby asked me today what I was thinking and I told him he didn’t really want to know, but then I ended up telling him anyway.  Even to my own ears, they sounded pretty awful.

It’s hard to be in a dark place and not know how to find my way out.  I can only imagine what it’s like for him to watch me suffer in that place.  He’s been a gem all day and I’m truly grateful for his love and support.

If you didn’t already know, I truly love this band and I do hope you enjoy!

Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

If I had to
I would put myself right beside you
So let me ask
Would you like that?
Would you like that?

And I don’t mind
If you say this love is the last time
So now I’ll ask
Do you like that?
Do you like that?

No!

Something’s getting in the way.
Something’s just about to break.
I will try to find my place in the diary of Jane.
So tell me how it should be.

Try to find out what makes you tick.
As I lie down
Sore and sick.
Do you like that?
Do you like that?

There’s a fine line between love and hate.
And I don’t mind.
Just let me say that
I like that
I like that

Something’s getting in the way.
Something’s just about to break.
I will try to find my place in the diary of Jane.
As I burn another page,
As I look the other way.
I still try to find my place in the diary of Jane.
So tell me how it should be.

Desperate, I will crawl
Waiting for so long
No love, there is no love.
Die for anyone
What have I become?

Something’s getting in the way.
Something’s just about to break.
I will try to find my place in the diary of Jane.
As I burn another page,
As I look the other way.
I still try to find my place in the diary of Jane.
