25 Songs, 25 Days

Welcome fellow readers, observers, and listeners.

Today is another “25 songs…” post.

2- A song that reminds you of your most recent ex-boyfriend/ girlfriend

Good Enough by Evanescence

This song has a lot of power to it, even to this day I love it for the way it reflects my deepest soul’s longing to be good enough for the person I love.  Though I know this person and I are no longer in those depths of passion and infatuation anymore, this song at the time I heard it was my feelings screaming out for that person.  Now  this song is really more of a reflection of the kind of person I was rather than how I feel about someone. I was never one of those kind of people who was confident towards the opposite sex.  Being horribly introverted, I could never profess anything to really anyone.  Hilarious story attached to this song, which is probably why it sticks in my memory so much, I had this song set as the ringtone for my ex before we were together and even before I knew he had the same feelings for me.  One day I couldn’t find my phone and had him call it.  Not realizing it wasn’t muted, the song blared out at the most profound moment of the song, “…I can’t say no to you and I’ve completely lost myself and I don’t mind, I can’t say no to you, shouldn’t have let you conquer me completely, now I can’t let go of this dream can’t believe that I feel good enough…” at that moment my cards were showing. I tried to play it off like that was my ringtone for everyone. I felt like a creepy dork.

Now I love this song for how it reminds me of beautiful young love, my young sweet self, and how I feel now that I am good enough for someone to love me back just as much as I love them.
