Somewhere I Belong

I recently went on vacation and the experience afforded me the opportunity to listen to my old “traveler’s iPod.”  The same iPod I would use for all of my consulting travel during my previous career.  When I traveled as a consultant, I would always try to sleep on the plane, and thus, I usually listened to my “Sleep” playlist for the duration of the flight.

I decided this time to shuffle randomly through all my music and came across an old gem from Linkin Park: Somewhere I Belong.  Listening to this song put me in a very pensive mood.  After everything I’ve been through, these lyrics had a nostalgic effect on me, bringing back memories of my painful past as well as my desire to overcome it all.  Hopefully this will all have a happy ending, with me getting healthier and eventually going to business school.

I will never know
Myself until I do this on my own
And I will never feel
Anything else until my wounds are healed
I will never be
Anything til I break away from me
I will break away
I’ll find myself today

I wanna heal
I wanna feel
What I thought was never real
I wanna let go of the pain I’ve felt so long

I wanna heal
I wanna feel
Like I’m close to something real
I wanna find something I’ve wanted all along

Somewhere I belong
