"We are the strays"

Hi everybody!

Today I'm going to talk about a song. If you usually read my posts you'll know that when it comes to talking about a song I end up talking about deep stuff and about emotions. That's what I mostly look for in music so, it sounds okay to me.

The song I've chosen is The Strays by Sleeping With Sirens. This single is a very "calm" one if we compare it to the rest of the album, since it's only acoustic style most of the song and then it turns into a soft rock style. 

Have you ever felt like you belonged nowhere, like you couldn't find a place in which you belonged? Have you ever been told that you're no one, that you'll never become who you want to? Have you ever felt astray? Have you ever felt like they were right? Have you ever felt lost, thrown away? 

If so, don't worry. After all, this is what this song talks about, all the people who are astray - that's where the title comes from. It gives a sense of community, the same that is felt among the fans of a same kind of music, or of a same band. 

It's okay to follow a different path than the rest of the people, why should we have to be like them? Don't you think so?

When all is said and done, maybe we're not that astray, all the strays are walking together. Our path is different, but it's still as valid as their path. At least we can say we were able to make it in a distinct way - isn't that something to celebrate?
