Music Meme (Day 17) - The Song I've Listened To the Most

Between iTunes' play count and Last.fm it's super simple to determine how many times I've listened to my tunes.  However, I've already chosen the song I have listened to the most (70 plays) as the song I know all the words to.  How very appropriate!  So, instead of repeating a song in this meme challenge I've opted to move on to the 2nd place winner with 55 plays.  My Top Tracks Overall are all from the Twilight Soundtrack.  For several months after I bought it in 2009 I listened to it a lot.  For quite a long while now I simply delight when I hear a song come up in one of my huge multi-genre play lists. The song is by Linkin Park. It is Leave Out All the Rest.  It has a great sound and first rate lyrics. 


I dreamed I was missing
You were so scared
But no one would listen cause no one else cared

After my dreaming
I woke with this fear
What am I leaving when I'm done here?

So if you're asking me I want you to know

When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
And don't resent me
And when you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory
Leave out all the rest

Leave out all the rest

Don't be afraid of taking my
I have shared, but I'm me
I'm strong on the surface
Not all the way through
I've never been perfect
But neither have you

So if you're asking me I want you to know

When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
Don't resent me
And when you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory
Leave out all the rest

Leave out all the rest

Forgetting
All the hurt inside you have learned to hide so well
Pretending
Someone else can't come and save me from myself
I can't be who you are

When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
Don't resent me
And when you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory
Leave out all the rest

Leave out all the rest

Forgetting
All the hurt inside you have learned to hide so well
Pretending
Someone else can't come and save me from myself
I can't be who you are
