Shinedown

Its very exciting to discover a new band that you really like every now and then. I started liking Disturbed only recently. While surfing Amazon, and going through a list of reccomendations, i started to discover Shinedown.

 

 

Shinedown and its latest album, The Sound of Madness, is currently my favourite album of the year hands down. Everything from the lyrics, to the arrangements and originality truly makes this band unique and deserves a thumbs up for me. Its a rock metal band, but it has none of those extreme head banging tunes. 

I particularly like track 3, Second Chance. You can click here to listen to the song.

A more upbeat track, track 6, If You Only Knew. Click here to preview the song.

Lyrics for your enjoyment.

-SECOND CHANCE-

My eyes are open wide
And by the way, I made it
Through the day
I watched the world outside
By the way, I’m leaving out
Today

Well, I just saw hailey’s
Comet shooting
Said why you always running
In place? 
Even the man in the
Moon disappears
Somewhere in the
Stratosphere

[Chorus]
Tell my mother, 
Tell my father
I’ve done the best I can
To make them realize
This is my life
I hope they understand
I’m not angry, I’m just saying… 
Sometimes goodbye
Is a second chance

Please don’t cry
One tear for me
I’m not afraid of
What I have to say
This is my one and
Only voice
So listen close, it’s
Only for today

Well, I just saw hailey’s
Comet shooting
Said why you always running
In place? 
Even the man in the
Moon disappears
Somewhere in the
Stratosphere

[Chorus]
Tell my mother, 
Tell my father
I’ve done the best I can
To make them realize
This is my life
I hope they understand
I’m not angry, I’m just saying… 
Sometimes goodbye
Is a second chance

Here’s my chance
This is my chance

Tell my mother, 
Tell my father
I’ve done the best I can
To make them realize
This is my life
I hope they understand
I’m not angry, I’m just saying… 
Sometimes goodbye
Is a second chance

Sometimes goodbye
Is a second chance [x2]
