I was first introduced to Dashboard Confessional during my stay in California about 5 years ago. The band is led by singer-songwriter, guitarist and only reason for band, Chris Carrabba (pictured above). I've always felt like this bands lyrics express things you wish or want to say.
I've never been a band groupie, but if i planned to be one I think this band would be pretty high on my list of "bands to stalk". Ive never got to see them live (grrr..sore point, i got lost on the way to San Diego Street Scene and missed them) but i've heard their concerts are pretty cool as everyone in the audience sings along the whole time. Next time I get the oppurtunity i will be there singing along too. If you have never heard D.C - go take a listen.
Here are some of my favourite lyrics:
“My hopes are so high,
that your kiss might kill me.
So won't you kill me,
so I die happy.
My heart is yours to fill or burst,
to break or bury,Or wear as jewelery, whichever you prefer.” - Hands down by D.C
I am selfish,
I am wrong,
I am right,
I swear I'm right,
Swear I knew it all along
And I am flawed,
but I am cleaning up so well,
I am seeing in me now the things you swore you saw yourself"-Vindicated by D.C
