#atozchallenge 2017 | music | what sandra thinks
[Disclaimer: I am not a musician. I can sing. I remember most of the recital piece I played on the piano when I was 6. But I’m not a musician. I know what I like and what I don’t like and what will likely be the soundtrack when I arrive in hell.]

z | zwan

I’d like to thank Billy Corgan (of Smashing Pumpkins fame) for his short-lived side project, Zwan. Because it starts with Z.

I believe the love you talk about with me
Is it true, do I care?
Honestly, you can try to wipe the memories aside
But it’s you that you erase

‘Cause there’s no place that I could be without you
It’s too far to discard the life I once knew
Honestly, all the weather storms I bring
Are just a picture of my needs
‘Cause when I think of you as mine
And allow myself with time
To lead into the life we want
I feel love, honestly
I feel love, yes, honestly

I believe you mean the best that life can bring
I believe in it all
Honestly, you can try
Your heart is just as long as mine
Is it ours to let go

‘Cause there’s no place that I could be without you
It’s too dark to discard the life I once knew
Honestly, a single wrong is not enough
To cover up the pain in us
‘Cause when I think of you as mine
And allow myself the time
To lead into the life we want
I feel love, honestly

I’ll make a joke so you must laugh
I’ll break your heart so you must ask
Is this the way to get us back
I don’t know, honestly
I don’t know, yes, honestly 

There’s no place that I could be without you

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  1. Hahaha! Good one. I wondered what you’d come up with for Z. Way to go! 😃

  2. I never even heard of this, good choice. And Billy is from the suburbs of Chicago and of course, we live him here!

    I never heard of this either… I suppose you could have done Led Zeppelin (if you cheated and went by the last name or Warren Zevon but I’m thinking he goes in the pile with ZZ Top…) but yay! You did it!

    • I thought of all of those… but they all go I the pile with ZZ Top as far as I’m concerned. I know someone will freak but I can’t stand Led Zeppelin… most boring music ever.

        • Seriously. I’ve always kind of hated them. I don’t really get the appeal. I find them so boring. I remember being at a party once where I only knew the one friend who brought me… and all the guys (her friends from before we met) were sitting around listening to nothing but that. I asked her if it was ever going to get better. She laughed at me.

          I don’t know… that’s saying a lot about my distaste because it’s not like I listen to loud upbeat stuff all the time. I love mellow stuff… but that… I am just bored!

          I know… this is an unpopular opinion. What can I say? I’m a weirdo. (And a creep… and a weirdo…)

            No way! And variety is the spice of life. I am surprised is all. I would have thought they would be your cup of tea. I have plenty of unpopular opinions so I get it. 😀

            • Well, I think this month showed that my taste in music is pretty varied. But of course, I don’t like everything. There were people who didn’t give a crap about The Smiths or John Mayer or… some others. I don’t understand that (LOL) or agree, obviously… But I expected as much… and I accept it. I guess. 🙂

  4. Sandra,

    Congrats on crossing the A2Z finish line with a new-to-me band. I enjoyed this song selection and I’m curious to listen to more of their mewsic. Of course, I like the classic southern rock band, ZZ Top but I know how you feel about that group. 😀 We all can’t be the same but I do enjoy a variety of mewsic styles. It balances my life. Have zangy week!
