Linkin Park – Somewhere I Belong lyrics

(When this began)
I had nothing to say
And I get lost in the nothingness inside of me
(I was confused)
And I let it all out to find
That I'm not the only person with these things in mind
(Inside of me)
But all that they can see the words revealed
Is the only real thing that I've got left to feel
(Nothing to lose)
Just stuck, hollow and alone
And the fault is my own, and the fault is my own

I wanna heal, I wanna feel, what I thought was never real
I wanna let go of the pain I've felt so long
(Erase all the pain till it's gone)
I wanna heal, I wanna feel, like I'm close to something real
I wanna find something I've wanted all along
Somewhere I belong

And I've got nothing to say
I can't believe I didn't fall right down on my face
(I was confused)
Looking everywhere only to find
That it's not the way I have imagined it all in my mind
(So what am I)
What do I have but negativity
'Cause I can't justify the way, everyone is looking at me
(Nothing to lose)
Nothing to gain, hollow and alone
And the fault is my own, and the fault is my own

[Repeat Chorus]

I will never know myself until I do this on my own
And I will never feel anything else until my wounds are healed
I will never be anything till I break away from me
I will break away, I'll find myself today

[Repeat Chorus]

I wanna heal, I wanna feel, like I'm somewhere I belong
I wanna heal, I wanna feel, like I'm somewhere I belong
Somewhere I belong

    I did report on this song beacuse it relates to my dad in a lot of ways. My dad is an addict. He is going through the prosses of recovering. To me this song means that he was an addict (abused drugs and alcohol) and hes trying to find his place in the world. He says that "I'm not the only person with these things in mind" and my dad had to discover all of this on his own. This is my favorite song by them. I love Linkin Park!

    This song has much more meaning to me. I recently got off my meds for my Aspergers Syndrome (form of Autism). Now I feel kinda depressed. If I go back on, my pride will be lost. If I stay off, I feel depressed-- not 100%, but more than I would like. So. I'm trying to heal and feel. And in a world that treats me differently, I'm trying to find somewhere I belong.

    I can relate to this song so much. I have anxiety disorder and panic attacks but I feel nobody can understand me, including my parents. I have nobody to talk to, and sometimes I cry all night long. I wanna heal from this condition but how can I heal if there's nobody to talk to? My parents get angry to me everytime my panic attack appears. They say I make them ashamed. I sometimes feel like it's my fault to have panic attacks. My aunt, my cousin, my uncle, they all are like that too. I feel I'm alone and don't belong to them. I don't have any friends because I'm shy and I constantly think what if they know my condition? I really wanna find somewhere I belong.
