It's the Breathing by allison712 It's the Breathing by allison712
Do you know what I mean when I say "I don't want to be alone"?

Inspired by Work by Jars of Clay.

A remake of No Fear of Drowning.

Work
Jars of Clay

Just in case, I will leave my things packed
So I can run away
I cannot trust these voices

I don't have a line of prospects
that can give some kind of peace
There is nothing left to cling to
that can bring me sweet release

I have no fear of drowning
It's the breathing that's taking all this work

Do you know what I mean when I say, "I don't want to be alone"?
What I mean when I say, "I don't want to be alone"

Empty spaces with shadows hit by streetlights
Warnings signs and weight of tired conversations
In the absence of a shoulder, in the abscess of a thief
On the brink of this destruction, on the eve of bittersweet
Now all the demons look like prophets and I'm living out
Every word they speak, every word they speak

Do you know what I mean when I say, "I don't want to be alone"?
What I mean when I say, "I don't want to be alone"
What I mean when I say, "I don't want to be alone"

Do you know what I mean when I say, "I don't want to be alone"?
What I mean when I say, "I don't want to be alone"
What I mean when I say, "I don't want to be alone"
Alone, alone, I don't want to be alone

I have no fear of drowning
It's the breathing that's taking all this work

Nicely done, sweetie! :D (And I love the song, too, although I like others of theirs better...:cd:)

Thank you so much! It was quite fun to remake the old picture I did, because I've improved so much since then. I personally really like the song, but I think a lot of it has to do with the lyrics and how I can totally relate to them at this time of my life. And that's what inspired me almost 3 years ago to the day of submitting the new picture - the lyrics just seemed to totally fit how I was feeling and what I was going through. I believe the term "synchronicity" would fit well in this case. When I heard the song on the radio one day, I just knew I had to make the picture again. I had absolutely no clue that the older version had been submitted nearly the same day 3 years ago. Totally crazy coincidence. So strange that I'd be feeling the same way, at two different point in my life, three years apart. Oh well.

Okay, rambling done. Time to use the bathroom and watch a movie! ROFL

lol - nothing like a good bit of rambling before you watch a movie :teevee: And yes, you have definitely made some great progress in the time I've known you - bravo! :iconbwavoplz: Woo hoo! There are a few of my images I'd love to go back and try again, now that I've learned a few things, but I think I'm far too lazy to ever actually do it - lol! Oh, well... :iconkh2glompplz:

Lol yeah I know what you mean about being lazy. I'm actually a member of a group called #KickYourOwnAss, which challenges you to remake your old pictures. They have (or had...) a contest for recreating your first deviation ever submitted on dA, and I really wanted to enter, but I think I'm probably too late now. Unless it was for the month of June...in which case I still might have a week :P But I just couldn't get around to actually starting the piece *sigh*

Yeah, I've thought about revisiting some of my earlier pieces, but I am far too lazy, and I have too many new ones in my head still clawing to get out - lol! :pc:
