brand new I know and like though I dunno if its exactly what I'm lookin for, I think its just the fact where I go to extremes (I like really really soft folk or absolutely brutal metal) I can't find anything in this genre that I like

another thing that may help is that I think my favorite lyrics from a band have come from The Barenaked Ladies, Nick Drake, The Smiths, and Mumford And Sons just to name a few more down to earth and literal (with the exception of morrissey there sorry their just what I'm listenin to the most right now)

I also liked Fightstar but their screaming wasn't that good, the lyrics were though so yea

thanks for the recommendations not particularly what I'm lookin for though

Hmm, I'm not sure exactly what you're looking for.
It seems like you're looking for optimistic lyrics about love, with in a genre that's predominantly and loves lost, or loves that never took off, or how shitty things are going right now.
I only have a bit of Emo and Post-Hardcore, so maybe someone else might be able to help you. But I'm not sure the genre has lyrics that are quite optimistic, but I hope one band out there does and you find what you're looking for.
I don't feel and I feel great.

"The Sin in Grey" - Majority Rule, on their album Interviews With David Frost.

Don't care if you're looking for that or not; it's ****ing good.

Well if you like the heavier side of stuff, maybe look into heavier post-hardcore or emo stuff? Cap'n Jazz is Mike Kinsella too but it's heavier than American Football and has a more upbeat feel to it.

I was wondering if anyone has some screamo recommendations for me. Here is a list of some of the stuff I'm into:
Hot Cross
Funeral Diner
La Dispute
City of Caterpillar

Also, if anyone knows some post-hardcore stuff similar to a band like I See Stars, I'd appreciate any recommendations on that as well. thx
The problem with now is no matter how much we
want it to,
it doesn't last forever.
