30 Day Song Challenge: Day 4

Day 4: A song that reminds you of someone you’d rather forget

Song I chose: “Roam” by The Story So Far

Ugh, there’s nothing I love more than an angsty pop punk band, and that’s what TSSF is for me.

What really drew me into this song was the chorus: “You have no idea how unproductive it is /  To fall in and out of you as often as I do / And lately I’ve been feeling grey but today / I’m alright no thanks to you”. I heard this song in 2015, right before I went to see one of their shows in Des Moines. I was a senior in high school, dealing with typical boy drama. I was head over heels for this guy who screwed me over the year before. This song described what was happening to me perfectly — this guy kept drawing me back into him, even though I knew it was trouble. It felt terribly unproductive. When he screwed me over again (for the last time), I felt grey as hell. Empty.

He’s a great guy, besides the whole breaking my heart thing. I don’t want to forget him, but sometimes I do wish I could forget the emotional turmoil he put me through. Yolo, man. I always think of him when I hear this song.
