The Story Of My Life - One Direction


The Experience: The story of my life: I give her hope... Then I spend her love until she's broke inside. Looking back on my past failures, the colors I can't change. Looking ahead to when I'll be gone gone tonight. It's over. Baby, running after you is like chasing the clouds. Why did love fall apart? Why is this the story of my life?   


The Video: One Direction is revealing photographs of their life, their childhood. They look back at when they were with their family and loved ones, re-living the story of my life. Making memories and love come alive. 

My Take: Looking back hurts. I'm broken... It's tempting to ignore bad experiences and try again. But history will repeat itself - unless I learn from it. If we face that hurt, But it can at least teach us who we are and who we should be 'next time'. Why did love fail? Was it my fault to spend her love? Was it her fault to leave me chasing the clouds? Time to face my past. Read into the stories I can't explain. I have to come to understand what I've gone through, who I am. There is a meaning to the story of my life .

Ask Yourself: What mistakes or loves make up the story of my life? What words will be written on my (tomb)stone?  


LYRICS:


Written in these walls are the stories that I can't explain
I leave my heart open but it stays right here empty for days

She told me in the morning she don't feel the same about us in her bones
It seems to me that when I die these words will be written on my stone

And I'll be gone gone tonight
The ground beneath my feet is open wide
The way that I been holdin' on too tight
With nothing in between

The story of my life I take her home
I drive all night to keep her warm and time
Is frozen (the story of, the story of)
The story of my life I give her hope
I spend her love until she's broke inside
The story of my life (the story of, the story of)

Written on these walls are the colors that I can't change
Leave my heart open but it stays right here in its cage

I know that in the morning now
I'll see us in the light upon your ear
Although I am broken, my heart is untamed still

And I'll be gone gone tonight
The fire beneath my feet is burning bright
The way that I been holdin' on so tight
With nothing in between

The story of my life I take her home
I drive all night to keep her warm and time
Is frozen (the story of, the story of)
The story of my life I give her hope
I spend her love until she's broke inside
The story of my life (the story of, the story of)

And I been waiting for this time to come around
But baby running after you is like chasing the clouds

The story of my life I take her home
I drive all night to keep her warm and time
Is frozen

The story of my life I give her hope (give her hope)
I spend her love until she's broke inside (until she's broke inside)
The story of my life (the story of, the story of)
The story of my life
The story of my life (the story of, the story of)
The story of my life
