"Just Breathe...the Midnight Air Will Do You Well"

Well, I guess my whole writing more often thing didn't work out very well did it? Haha!

May 29th I saw Hawthorne Heights at Juanita's.  I got the chance to sit in on a pre-show acoustic set.  They sang "Saying Sorry", "Rescue Me" and "Ohio Is For Lovers."  I wish I could have recorded "Saying Sorry" that is one of my favorites, but my phone ran out of space. I did record "Rescue Me and "Ohio Is For Lovers" though.

                                                                         "Rescue Me" (acoustic):

You might need to turn your volume up for these videos; he isn't using a microphone and his voice doesn't seem to carry well.





"Ohio Is For Lovers" (acoustic):





Sorry this one turned out blurry; my phone wasn't wanting to focus.



It was good to see them again.  It had been a while since the last time.  

They told me that they are going on tour with The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus; unfortunately I don't think they'll be making a stop in Little Rock for that tour...which makes me sad, because I love both of those bands and it would be awesome to see them play together; maybe that will happen one of these days.

Hawthorne Heights put on a great show (as they always do.)  To celebrate the fact that their first album "The Silence In Black and White" was released 10 years ago they performed the whole album and even had special merch made.

I have been wanting another tattoo and I'm thinking about getting the words just breathe...

I think it would be a good one to get, since I worry a lot, to calm down I always listen to "Breathe" by Ryan Star and in the lyrics he says "Just breathe; take the world off your shoulders, put it on me"  

"Breathe" (Official Music Video):




The first line of "Rescue Me" by Hawthorne Heights is "Just breathe, the midnight air will do you well" (which explains the title of this post.)
"Rescue Me" (Official Music Video):





The words just breathe mean a lot to me for many different reasons.  Now I just have to decide on a good placement for the tattoo.
