Balloons signify trying to hold onto something but also signify letting go. A balloon that escapes your grasp and is unable to be retrieved is a very sinking, empty, and scary feeling– it’s lost into the wild blue yonder, never to be seen or touched again. With life, holding onto something that is not staying with you by choice (tugging on the balloon strings, so to speak), is also very sinking, empty, and scary feeling… that is until you let it go and feel how freeing the release is. Sometimes we struggle so hard to keep something or someone with us, that we don’t see that the answer lies in letting go.

Blush’s lyrics point to this, “Embrace the light, the silence will be broken once you face your fright. Reflection of the being who you are inside who shines so bright and get you up and away.”

Also, with the past, many times people focus on the past to the point that the past brings them down. Take the balloon strings and fly up and away with the balloon– past the past and into the now. Those experiences and people from the past who weigh you down need to be left behind. Float up and away into the heights of happiness and sunshine of today… the now.

As Kid Cudi so eloquently puts it, “up up and away ’cause they’re gonna judge me anyway so whatever.”

The hating and the waiting, hesitating
I just wanna be done with you, faking
For the taking but I’m wicked
Up to the fact that you’re lying, denying
Justifying all the actions you take
It’s pathetic and poetic
It’s just sick!

Seeing is believing, now I’m leaving
All the damage is done
You’ve broken the notion of trust
’cause you’re lying and denying
Justifying all the actions you take
It’s pathetic and poetic

Is compromise something you don’t understand?
You force your hand but my eyes are wide open
Caught in the web of your self-serving plan
Don’t force my hand when my eyes are wide open
“Eyes Wide Open” by Staind

Where are you Christmas
Why can’t I find you
Why have you gone away
Where is the laughter
You used to bring me
Why can’t I hear music play

My world is changing
I’m rearranging
Does that mean Christmas changes too

Where are you Christmas
Do you remember
The one you used to know
I’m not the same one
See what the time’s done
Is that why you have let me go

Christmas is here
Everywhere, oh
Christmas is here
If you care, oh

If there is love in your heart and your mind
You will feel like Christmas all the time

I feel you Christmas
I know I’ve found you
You never fade away
The joy of Christmas
Stays here inside us
Fills each and every heart with love

Where are you Christmas
Fills your heart with love

Eerily time made no change
Pointing fingers, laying blame
Lying over and over and over and over
Deceiving your mind
Dug my grave, trash my name
Yet here I stand so you won’t fade away.

Now I’m forced to look behind
I’m forced to look at you
You wear a thousand faces
Broken mirrors paint the floor
Why can’t you see the truth
You wear a thousand faces
Tell me, tell me which is you?
