30 Day Song Challenge: Day 28 – A Song Makes You Feel Guilty

Guilty is a hard feeling to get from a song and I’m not the kind of person to make a habit of doing things that I know I will feel guilty about either.
This this one took some thought and some listening thorough my playlist.

I can’t really say that feeling I get from this song is exactly guilt but the lyrics make me feel like I could do better, that I’m always rushing around and wanting things now. My mind races at a million miles an hour. And when I’m depressed – I can get really emotional and lose sight of reality quite fast.
This song, brings me back to earth a bit, with a slightly uplifting and comforting tone and in a small guilty way showing me that I can slow down and things aren’t that bad.

It’s the lyrics that really make this song I think, it’s very simple but very calming but I love it. I’ll put the lyrics below the video so you can read them.

Billy Joel – Vienna

Lyrics:

Slow down, you crazy child
you’re so ambitious for a juvenile
But then if you’re so smart, tell me
Why are you still so afraid?

Where’s the fire, what’s the hurry about?
You’d better cool it off before you burn it out
You’ve got so much to do and
Only so many hours in a day

But you know that when the truth is told..
That you can get what you want or you get old
You’re gonna kick off before you even
Get halfway through
When will you realize, Vienna waits for you?

Slow down, you’re doing fine
You can’t be everything you want to be
Before your time
Although it’s so romantic on the borderline tonight
Tonight,…
Too bad but it’s the life you lead
you’re so ahead of yourself that you forgot what you need
Though you can see when you’re wrong, you know
You can’t always see when you’re right. you’re right

You’ve got your passion, you’ve got your pride
but don’t you know that only fools are satisfied?
Dream on, but don’t imagine they’ll all come true
When will you realize, Vienna waits for you?

Slow down, you crazy child
and take the phone off the hook and disappear for awhile
it’s all right, you can afford to lose a day or two
When will you realize,..Vienna waits for you?
And you know that when the truth is told
that you can get what you want or you can just get old
You’re gonna kick off before you even get half through
Why don’t you realize,. Vienna waits for you
When will you realize, Vienna waits for you?

 

So, what song makes you feel guilty?
