I’ve Never Felt (SOTW #15)

January 5, 2009 | Song of the Week


For the last 2 years or so I’ve been learning to pay attention to how I feel. I’ve spent much of my life pleasing other people and as a result, haven’t owned my own feelings but instead take cues from people around me on how I should feel.

I’m discovering what a lonely place that is to be. But to move from there, one would have to allow themselves to feel, which awakens the feeling of loneliness and introduces pain.

I once read that Mother Teresa struggled with the idea of feeding rice to starving children because although their bodies needed it so badly the rice awakened a hunger in them that brought with it much pain. The pain was awakened like a sleeping lion.

Now, I’m being a little melodramatic here but there are similarities in how allowing ourselves to experience feelings fully, brings with it pain. But if one refuses to feel the negative things does he really feel the positive?

I want to be one who feels deeply…

“I’ve Never Felt”
lyrics by Patrick Largen and Tim Seley

what’s going on inside that head of yours
seems like you’re always trying to ignore
the way you feel when no one is there
must be so hard to hold

I’ve never felt this way before

you need to know that it’s okay to cry
don’t keep your feelings bottled up inside
The way you’re feeling when you’re all alone
let me help you to hold

I’ve never felt this way before

it must be so hard

    I’m not sure if it’s because Patrick can play guitar again or what, but this song feels like a return to the first few – excellent – songs you put online. I love it.

    And as I was reading the background story you posted, I was thinking to myself that feeling the pain is worth it because you know when you’re feeling joy that way… and then you concluded the same thing! Needless to say, this song means a lot to me.

    Love the dramatic feel, guys. And, I agree: you can’t feel the power of laughter without also feeling the power of tears. Well done.
